I used to save my Shoppers Optimum points so that I could buy expensive cosmetics that I normally wouldn’t want to pay full price for (that’s the Polish way). I splurged on this one night cream that the Shoppers employee recommended. I was a bit skeptical since it was $100 and she probably just wanted a sweet sale. Anyway, I bought it.
After a few nights of using it, I broke out and ended up using it for my legs. What a waste of points! Those YouTube influencers aren’t any better. They’re paid to push products…like drug dealers, but for overpriced beauty products that are BS. I’ve fallen for a few of their lies.
So I started making my own, sticking it to the man. It’s how I roll. Oh, I also tried that under eye roller stuff…also BS. Didn’t stimulate any anti-aging,..only some moderate inner rage for dashing my hopes of crows feet-free eyes. I guess I just have to stop smiling and expressing any emotions on my face if I want that to happen.
Ola: That is funny.
Ola: I am angry
…you get the point…
In the meantime, I’m using this homemade facial serum a couple nights a week. It’s made of all natural ingredients that are beneficial for your face. Don’t believe me? Ask my sister, she likes it too. And as a mother of 3, she ain’t got time for BS.
½ cup carrier oil: sweet almond oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, or jojoba oil (or a combination)
10 drops of: carrot seed oil, geranium oil
5 drops: frankincense oil, myrrh oil, lemon oil, vitamin e oil
What is a carrier oil you might ask? It’s basically the base that you put all the other stuff into. I almost always use avocado oil if it’s going on my face because it’s not comedogenic which is a fancy word for not clogging your pores and giving you a bunch of zits.
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl (not metal). If you don’t have one of the essential oils, that’s ok, just add extra drops from another one. Pour the facial serum into a bottle and use before bed on a clean face.
These essential oils are more geared towards anti-aging and although I’m only 31 and not very wrinkly, you gotta nip those wrinkles in the bud! Don’t wait to age – grab age by the balls and say, “Not today a**hole. Not today.”
Let me know how you pan out. My fingers are crossed but my face is expressionless.
