Essential Oils for Skincare?

Tell me about your skincare routine in the comments below…I am interested to hear your perspective, especially those of us in midlife.

I read recently that some women in France ditch the expensive skincare products and opt to simply hydrate their skin with Vitamin E and olive oil. I was intrigued by this perspective.

Call it coincidence, but I was contacted the next day by @maeloveskincare about trying out some of their gifted products. Although my attention was instantly grabbed by a product called “The Glow Maker”, I was more intrigued by the fact that the hydrating products are based in essential oils, vitamins, and botanical extracts such as Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, Jojoba, Rose, Argan, and more.

So given what I read about the French approach to midlife skincare, I decided to give MaeLove a try…and the photo above speaks for itself. My skin glows while staying hydrated…and doesn’t feel gritty or greasy under my makeup. I also found that I don’t need as much foundation when I use the MaeLove 31 Oil – my makeup goes on much smoother and lighter without creases…and a definite golden glow.

And as a bonus, The Hydrating B5 Gel and The Glow Maker retail for only $27.95 each…a much better deal than the $100+ creams and lotions at the dermatologist’s office. Posting a link in my stories to MaeLove’s website!

PS: Special shoutout to for this super sleek cami…click here to shop! And while this handbag is sold out from Kate Spade, I found one on Poshmark for only $175…make an offer! It retails new for $329.
