The reason I tried these products is because of what they don’t have. They’re free of Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates. It’s supposed to be a healthier line of beauty products.
With that being said, the foundation doesn’t score good because it has sunscreen in it. The sunscreen in this product is Octinoxate. Sunscreen is good for sun protection but some studies link sunscreen to cancer. 🙁
This foundation is great for women over 40 because it helps to plump skin with clinical levels of hyaluronic filling spheres that expand to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. It also supports the tightening of skin.
Even in the winter, I like to add some bronzer to my face. This Hourglass Ambient bronzer gives me a sun-kissed glow without being too heavy or dark.
Lastly, we have talked about eyebrows quite a bit around here. Our eyebrows thin as we get older so we want to fill them in but we want them to look natural. We don’t want to draw a line!
I have used dark brown eye shadow for a long time but I tried the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil and I really like it!
This brow pencil combines the benefits and technique of a powder, pencil, and wax on one end and it has a brow brush on the other end. Perfect! It glides on easy and looks natural.
So these are three products I’m using right now. Have you tried any Hourglass products?
Beauty For the Heart~~I am not a huge fan of winter. Cold, dreary days get old quick. But this quote from Richard Foster reminds me that winter can be a season of growing.
“Winter preserves and strengthens a tree. Rather than expending its strength on the exterior surface, its sap is forced deeper and deeper into its interior depth. In winter, a tougher, more resilient life is firmly established. Winter is necessary for the tree to survive and flourish.”
Although I don’t love winter, I think I need winter. It’s a great time for me to dig deep into scripture and let my faith grow.
Colossians 2:7 says, Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Winter prepares me for the year ahead!
Have a blessed day!
