So, what if Botox isn’t for you?

I haven’t really talked about this on the blog before, although it’s something I’m fairly vocal about IRL, but I’m not a fan of Botox. I’m actually not a fan of any of the more invasive “anti-ageing” treatments (fillers, skin boosters, etc.) but it’s a little bit tricky to explain why.

Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE Anti-Aging Foundation SPF 30 PA++ I was a huge fan of the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude foundation, so I was really excited when their latest offering landed on our desk.

It also contains hydra-pigments to instantly blur imperfections, while helping to seal in moisture for a radiant look. Elizabeth Arden even goes so far to claim that you can sleep with it on to reap added skincare benefits, with studies…
