The perfect coverage

Things really start going downhill when you turn 35. I have always had perfect skin until about 2 years ago. This past year, I have actually developed something called melasma that's either related to sun exposure or hormones, or both. I am using something that my dermatologist gave me to get rid of it, but it's taking time. I am considering laser treatment to get rid of it, but in the meantime, I wanted to find a make-up that did a good job of covering it... Well.. I found it...

It's called Sheercover and it is AMAZING! I have seen it advertised on TV for years, but never know whether I can believe those infomercials or not. I was at the mall tonight with a friend who was looking at Proactive, and they also sold Sheercover. I tried it out on my hand, and bought a starter kit. When I got home, I put it on my face, and my face looks like I'm 20 years old again. It actually looks porcelain!

If you have rosacea, melasma, or just a few imperfections, you should give this a try. I think you will love it as much as I do!


UPDATE:  I was at Carowinds the other day, and we were all taking a break from the rides, when we saw someone guessing your age or weight for $5. So my daughter and her friend urged me to go up to them and have them guess my age. I reluctantly went up to the girl and gave her $5 to guess my age (they have to get within 2 years or you win a cheesy stuffed animal). Well, she guessed 26 years old. :) My daughter got a cute monkey because of it!! I'm not sure if this was the Sheercover talking, the girl's cluelessness, or the CF (most of us look younger than we really are), but I thought I'd add this to the Sheercover blog  just in case that might be why I looked 11 years younger to her than I really am. It made my day... whatever the reason.

Haha Debbie. I was just amazed that something sold on an infomercial worked!! I am always skeptical of those products. :)

Lori, Casey made me take that pic off. She hates pics of herself, that's why I don't have many at her current age. LOL. I hope it's just a stage!

I have melasma too and it can be sooo frusturating. I'm happy you have found something that helps, I'll look into it.

This stuff is great I know. I have rosacia and also scars from cycstic acne as a youth. I'm 43 and it helps a great deal balance the skin and neck. You would do well as a spokesperson. :)

I'm saying a prayer for you.
