In honor of Mother’s Day in the US next weekend, I thought I would give you a peek into my lovely Momma’s bathroom cabinet. As you can see, there are many MANY brands that are available on QVC – my mom is the one that introduced me to
my dirty little secret the shopping channel.
Some of her favorites, including some not purchased from the tv, are:
Dr. Denese SPF 30 Defense Day Cream
Philosphy “Amazing Grace” Spritz, but really anything in that scent
Elizabeth Arden “Red Door” – this has been her go to scent for I don’t know how many years now
RoC Skincare Deep Wrinkle Serum
Laura Geller Tinted Under Make-Up Primer, and she also loves the Balance N Brighten, too (*not shown)
Lierac Gentle Cleansing Water No-Rinse Formula for Face and Eyes (*no longer available, but now she keeps sneaking peeks at my new “Velvet Cleanser”)
Philosphy “The Oxygen Peel”
Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum (*pretty sure this was my bottle that Mom swiped after she finished hers)
I would like to point out the DIY pencil/brush holder I made for my mom with beads and a rectangle vase from Hobby Lobby. My mom has neuropathy in her hands, so it is very difficult for her to pick small things up off of flat surfaces. This holder makes it so much easier for her to grab her brushes and her eye products, as she is NOT giving any of those up. Especially these:
RevitaBrow – (*remember when I told you about my mom and RevitaBrow?)
Laura Geller Brow Marker
Smashbox Brow Tech To Go
Mally Beauty Automatic Eyeliner in “Black Cherry” (*of COURSE there is Mally in there, and I was *wondering* where that color went…)
So, I don’t think it is too hard to figure out where I get my love of beauty products (and QVC), do you? Tell me – do you get your love of beauty from your Momma, or has she picked up a few tricks from you?

It always makes me catch my breath a bit when my 76yo momma calls me at work. I never know if it’s something simple like “What do you want for dinner?” or more like “I’ve cut myself & am heading over to the doctor’s office now”. So, when she called me this morning to tell me, “I just want you to know that I’m having to trim my eyebrows”, it was a good thing.
See, Momma grew up when you plucked your brows into a *thin* line, so, it was difficult for her to grow any more. Add in the fact that she took a tumble a few years ago, gashing her brow open and the ER doc basically just pulled it up and sewed a jagged line where her brow should be, and you see why she pretty much draws in her brows with her Smashbox Brow Tech To Go on the daily.
Well, when I was in New York for NYFW, I visited the GBK Celebrity Style Lounge and chatted with Bree-Anna from Revitalash about their RevitaBrow. She sent me home with samples for Momma to try and, after the phone call today, I can happily report that she is definitely seeing fuller brows. Now, this is *not* a hair growth serum. This is just a conditioning treatment that helps “revitalize” the brows. But, Momma can atest to the fact that she actually has to maintenance her brows now, which she didn’t need to do before. I’d call that a difference.
How about you guys? Have you plucked your eyebrows into oblivion and need some help making them fuller? Have you tried a brow conditioner to help you out? Let me know!
