I stopped by my local Soft Surroundings at The Shops at La Cantera just in time to learn of some new updates with their beautiful beauty department and highlights on the Jane Iredale All Natural Makeup. Soft Surroundings has been faced with changes just as all retailers due to the pandemic. Their in-store beauty department will no long have a beauty consultant just for that area, however, all of the sales associates have been properly trained to help you find the right shades and products. They also will no longer be able to hand out samples, or allow customers to test the products as before.
The good news is that Soft Surroundings still carries high quality products. Like the Joan Rivers GREAT HAIR DAY, root touch- up. I recently needed some new touch up now that I have gone to a lighter shade, and I was not surprised to discover that GREAT HAIR DAY had the best match. The others were too light and not a true dark blonde.
TRUSTED ALL NATURAL MAKEUP
I have been purchasing Jane Iredale All Natural Makeup for years at Soft Surroundings. According to her website:
“Twenty-five years ago, Jane envisioned a makeup that was good for the skin—equal parts clean ingredients and simplicity to help women enhance their radiance and their lives. She revolutionized the beauty industry in the process. jane iredale—THE SKINCARE MAKEUP® has grown into a full line of clean, skin-nourishing makeup and skincare, giving women high-performance formulas without sacrificing healthy, luminous skin.” The products are cruelty free.
So, I was pleased to try a few new products (new to me anyway) and wanted to let you know what I had tested and found to be good products for our age groups.
Jane Iredale provides the sales associates a skin tone chart like this one to assist with finding the best color. I have been pretty loyal to this brand with several of the products. The ones below are some of my favorites. I am a huge fan of the Circle/Delete Concealer…you can see my fingerprints in it…it is great for dark circles under the eyes. I have used all of these products for several years.
ANSWERING A READER QUESTION
Charlene asked in an email for more specifics about my closet…what type of hangars I use, etc. I so hate to disappoint, but my closet is not glamorous. As I explained in THIS POST, I recently purged and it is way. more inviting now with less stuffed in there, but my closet is very small. If it comes down to spending money on a fun accessory or on nice hangars, I am going to go with the accessory every time. If I was gifted nice hangars, of course, I would rejoice and use them and now that I think about it, would consider them to be quite elegant. All of my hangars are these plastic ones. I like the way I can hang tank tops on them with the little indention area, and I like the grooves which keep some of the cardigans and nicer blouses from slipping. You will find one or two really nice hangars in the mix which were handed down from my mother-in-law.
All of my shoes are in the original shoe boxes, but I do write in marker on the end of the box so they are easy-to-grab the pair I want and go. Maybe someday, now that I am home more, I will have a “Glam up the Closet” moment and see what I can do to make it more of a destination than a function. Thanks for the idea, Charlene. That will go on the to-do list…for now, please don’t judge me for not spending money to make it nicer!
