Age of Beauty: From the Belle's Dressing Table

My apologies for the slow updates!

 Without further ado, the must have products right from the dressing table of the Belle.

Hada Labo Lifting & Firming Lotion

I have reviewed this lotion quite some time ago, and I am still loving it! After continued usage in conjunction with my regular skincare, the fine lines on my neck have diminished. Retinol in the lotion helps to exfoliate and reveal healthier, younger looking skin.

Chamomile + Green tea Toner

This toner tightens skin and prepares it to absorb skincare afterwards. Chamomile soothes itchy skin. Regular usage helps to reduce dark spots associated with aging. (View my previous post for how to make this simple DIY toner!)

All too often, women are on the lookout for the miracle cream in the bottle. For me, I prefer to keep things simple. Why? Not because I do not trust modern technology, but because of the simple fact that once you start using stronger products, it is hard to go back to simpler products. So start with something simple, then gradually adjust the intensity of your routine as your skin needs it, until your skin finds the lowest concentration possible that is needed to keep it in optimum condition.

Next up, ingredients to look out for when shopping for your next youth cocktail.

Come back soon!

    1. Hi! First of all, thank you for your interest!

      As for writing, I am far from being an expert, but I do know that perseverance is key. You need to find something that speaks to both you and your target audience. I would call it your blog's 'raison d'etre'- its reason for existence.

      When you are just starting, I would suggest that you go for a free platform you like first, then move on to other options as your needs change. When choosing a blogging platform, you need to be clear what you need. Start with the basics first.

      Good luck!

  5. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress
    on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.

    I have heard great things about Is there a way I
    can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    1. Hi! First of all, thanks for reading!

      Is there any particular reason you or your programmer think you should be switching blog platforms? As always, my opinion would be to stay with what you are comfortable with, then 'upgrade' only as needed. If what you have now is no longer serving its purpose, then by all means switch.

      I am not at liberty to comment about as I have not used it before, so I'm afraid I can't really help you there. Try looking on forums for those who have made the switch.

      Will drop by your site soon!

  9. Everything posted made a lot of sense. However, think
    on this, suppose you were to create a killer headline?
    I ain't suggesting your content is not good., but what if you added a title that grabbed people's attention?
    I mean "Age of Beauty: From the Belle's Dressing Table" is a little boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news titles to grab people interested. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about what you've written.

    Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
