After my meeting, I called my other beauty adviser, my best friend Susan. Susan is always up to date on the latest skincare products, cosmetics, perfume, lotion , eye cream, suntan screen, etc…..When we were children, she was always whipping up special concoctions. As a teenager she never had one pimple to speak of . By trade she is a nurse, but personally, I think she should have been a chemist or a dermatologist or Este—as in Lauder! One day she sent me on an errand to Atlanta to hit Niemen Marcus to fetch some perfume samples of some very expensive perfume that I had never heard of before so she could try it before she ordered it. Anyway, as children in the seventies, in the summer months after playing Charlie’s Angles we would often sunbathe! I currently have a birthday coming up and Susan just last week sent me an e-mail saying I should treat myself to a nice facial, and reminded me of all the sunbathing we did as children. If she only knew that I went out of the house just last week for my morning jog without sunscreen --she would die!
Now, no longer able to high-tail it to Atlanta, I have since discovered a trustworthy and affordable aesthetician here in Nashville--no financial statements needed! This past January , she recommended La Roche-Posay (a French company) eye cream and I have been very happy with it thus far. Also, today while I was meeting with her to pick-up some more eye cream she told me that the La Roche SPF 40 sunscreen that will be hitting the U.S. market soon. The best part about LA Roche products is that they are budget friendly and they work. The reason, the aesthetician said, it was so budget friendly was because the French refuse to pay a lot for their products, and when they do spend their Euros that the product must work-- and that I can believe!!! Also, she shared with me that L’Oreal has bought the company so my speculation is you won’t have trouble finding it. Just remember to wear your sunscreen!
