Women over 40 beauty, skincare, fashion, fitness and lifestyle, Keeping it Real

CVS Winter Beauty

CVS/pharmacy has a lot of new things in store this winter that are definitely worth putting on your radar to check out. Above is just a sampling of what is new that you can find at CVS for budget beauty.  Be sure to take advantage of the CVS Beauty Club, too.  For every $50 in beauty spend you get a $5 reward back, really making it beauty on a budget!

Some of the new findings are by Tweezerman – they have a new eyelash curler, a new cuticle trimmer, hot neon nail files and one of my favorites – a miniature lighted mirror that is 10x magnifying!

Revlon has new chubby lip pencils called Colorburst balms, some are matte finish and some are lacquer and they’re all retractable.

CoverGirl wants you to be a bombshell in 2014 with their new Bombshell beauty products.  They have a Bombshell Volume mascara that’s 2 steps to big lashes – one end is a volumizer and the other an intense color.  Their Bombshell Intensity Liner is a 24 hr longwear liner with a felt tip. It works beautifully!  And they also have Bombshell Shineshadows – tubes of creamy eye shadow with a shimmery finish.  That one I may put on the back burner for women over 40, but hey, if your daughters are looking…

In skincare, Jergens has a new BB Body cream. I have to say this is the first BB cream for the body that I’ve seen! It has 5 visible benefits for the skin – hydrating, illuminating, skin tone evening, skin firming and minimizer of imperfections. Jergens also has a new Shea Beauty Oil that is a spray oil of shea butter and argan oil, use it after showering when the skin is still damp and massage in for softer skin.

Biore wants to “free your pores!” with their new Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser and Self Heating One Minute Mask. Maybe something we could all use after those partying holidays?

Garnier has a new 5 Sec Blur – Visibly blur lines and wrinkles and pores away and their new Ultra-Lift Transformer Anti-Age Skin Corrector that immediately brightens and corrects the skin and adjusts to your skin tone.

And last, but certainly not least, Olay has a few new products as well. The Olay Regenerist Luminous which fades dark spots in 8 weeks according to Olay. A new Total Effects Eye Brightening CC Cream and Olay Fresh Effects Hydrating Gel Moisturizer.
