I’ll be the first to admit that I am an old lady.
It happened long before age 40; I would choose my couch, a blanket, and pajama pants over a party any day. Concerts? No thanks, because LOUD. My taste in shoes leans more toward comfort than style these days. And a dinner date at Luby’s at 4:30pm is perfectly fine with me.
My eyes don’t focus quite as quickly as they used to, and driving after dark? Forget it.
HOWEVER, I wasn’t prepared to look in the mirror and see (and this is painful to admit) that I don’t look like a college girl anymore.
No no no. Please no.
I have a confession, and it’s probably going to shock you: my hair is not naturally this blonde. It’s true; I know you’re in shock about that what with it being so natural-looking and all. I keep my hair Guess-model blonde on purpose, because really blonde = looking young. It’s a proven fact.
And I’m lucky to have good genes.
Two of my four grandparents were painting the town red well into their 90s, and my parents have always looked young for their age; they look closer to 50 than to 70 even now. And my own sister accuses me of having had botox because I don’t have forehead wrinkles (I haven’t. And you know I always tell the truth. But I make up for the lack of forehead wrinkles with those Dowager Countess of Grantham wrinkles around my eyes).
Before you think I’m bragging, the brutal truth is that… I don’t get carded anymore.
It didn’t happen overnight, but at some point over the past two years, NOBODY asked me for my identification when I bought wine. And it’s been months. Months and months and months since anyone has asked for my ID. It’s downright depressing.
COULD SOMEONE PLEASE JUST DO ME A FAVOR AND ASK FOR MY ID SO I CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT MYSELF?! I JUST WANT TO LOOK YOUNG. IS THAT SO WRONG?!
The cold, hard truth is that I’m a middle-aged mama and I look like it. My dad told me back when I was in high school and slathering on the baby oil before I baked in the sun all day that I would one day look like Ann Richards, and that day, apparently, is upon me.
And I’m way more wrinkled than I even thought. My mirror has been lying to me! Either that or my tired old eyes can’t really see how bad it is. It took close-up pictures of the skin around my eyes for this post before I realized with a gasp, OH MY GOODNESS I LOOK 42!
And then I threw myself on the floor and bit the rug.
It’s time to face the facts, people. I’ve been using coconut oil on my skin for years and years, but when you reach the age that you no longer get carded, it’s time to bring out the big guns.
Enter this amazing Nerium age-defying cream. I’m shocked at how much I prefer it to coconut oil.
My friend Rhonda sent me these products to try for a month, and I’m in love.
I felt the difference immediately, especially with the night cream; my skin was tighter (really tight, in a good way) and felt like velvet. Literally, my skin has never felt this velvety soft with any other product, and I have tried some good ones (you know, the samples that come with a department store makeup purchase). I felt the sagging under my chin tighten up, and the skin around my eyes plump up. Wrinkles seemed to smooth out. The beginnings of the marionette lines around my mouth, gone. And I LOVE the fresh, clean smell of the Night Cream. It reminds me of clovers! No phony, overpowering, perfumey smells!
I can tell you that I’ll be a Nerium customer from here on out, because NOT using Nerium is bad for my self-esteem.
And ALSO. Not only are the products amazing, but the business is too. If I wasn’t already in love with the Plexus opportunity, I’d be all over this one! I wasn’t very knowledgeable about network marketing before I got into it, but my opinion on it was that nobody does well with these types of things. Plexus and Nerium are two of the most fair compensation plans I’ve seen, and if you’re looking for a business to run from home, I’d highly recommend looking into one of these two!
If you DON’T want a business, but just want to use the products, they have an amazing referral program where you get your own Night Cream for free by referring three people!
Would YOU love to try Nerium? You won’t be disappointed.
