After college and after major burn out in a large, high pressure job, I decided to work in retail. Something that I thought would be mindless and would give me a mental break. I went to work at the cosmetic counter at my Thalheimers. I started out at the Charles of the Ritz counter which was combined with Naomi Sims cosmetics. I did very well. So well that I was soon promoted and moved to Estee Lauder. Estee Lauder, the best of the best. Soon I was educated in all the products and benefits of their line. It was eye opening. The line was for all skin types and all people. That was about 30 years ago. Once I worked for Estee Lauder I used nothing else for skincare and color. About 10 years ago I discovered MAC for color, so now it s Lauder for skincare and MAC for color. It works well.
It works well but of course Estee Lauder is very expensive; but so worth it. Last week I bought a bottle of Diminish and the new moisturizer for oily skin and for those two very small bottles and jars, they were $54 and $50 apiece. If those products did not work I certainly would not be buying them for all these years. It costs to be beautiful! Diminish minimizes pores and helps with oil. The new moisturizer is clean, light weight and feels wonderful on my skin. My face seems to soak it up.
The price of beauty is high. Paying $50 for a small jar of cream that works wonders is so very worth it!
