Hide the Children and Bar the Door

What you are going to see, may make you fall back in disgust. Protect the children's young eyes and you, be prepared.

This picture is of me, no makeup, not even mascara-yikes! The naked face, age, blemishes and all.

But, can you tell which side I put the Artistry Creme Lux on? (I sure hope so.) :) Please see post below.

And I promise, this was only after 15 minutes! You can ask hubbie, if you think I'm lying. And he sure was anxious for me to do the other side, so my face wouldn't stick like this. teehee....

The next morning everything was fine. The creme felt like the tingle you get when you eat mint. After two days, my blotchy skin has evened out some and a couple of my sun spots-hey, I live in Florida-have faded a bit. Wow. So, the verdict is-it works. Thank you dear daughter. (Check out her site in the post below.)

"We saw it, we heard it, and now we're telling you so you can experience it along with us, this experience of communion with the Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. Our motive for writing is simply this; We want you to enjoy this tool Your joy will double our joy." 1 John 1:3-4

I found something neat in skin care, but this is even better. John saw and heard the proof of Jesus Christ, who is the Son of our heavenly Father. He gives us joy, so we want to share it too.

Oh, and to wash the bad taste out from the first picture, I'll leave you with a more pleasant one.

First of are BEAUTIFUL! I think aging is so hard on us mentally, we tend to be critical of ourselves. You truly are a beautiful person inside and out.

So...I see the fuller side yes, but the other side ain't bad either!

I've got some lines between my brow...maybe I need a little creme. LOL

Kathy C. said...

Hmmm. I don't think I've actually seen you without make up.

alicia said...

You look beautiful without makeup! And I may need to check out that creme!

Diane said...

You are lovely in any light! Hugs :O)

kim said...

You are beautiful!1 I love the picture. I hopped over from my blog to invite you back. Friend of Angie's here. =)

Karen said...

Parsley, yes, things do droop and say with age, as long as our soul doesn't we're fine.

Kathy, sorry to scare you....:P

Alicia, and Diane, ya'll are just too sweet! Hugs back.

Kim thanks, I was scared to post, that, but for my daughter and visible proof for me. Hey, I left a comment on yours, too.

Hilary said...

I think you could sell this stuff easily. If I looked like you after treatment.. either side of your face would do.. I'd be quite pleased indeed.

Connie Arnold said...

Lovely pictures, both of them! As nice as it is to look good on the outside, the joy of Jesus within and the beauty that glows from inside is so much better!

Karen said...

Hilary, oh, now come on, are too kind, or sweet, or something. But thanks dear friend.

Connie, yes, you are correct. I agree.

Melinda said...

Beautiful inside and out ... with or without cream! ;0)

Clella said...

Oh Karen you brave soul. All of these people have the right idea..beautiful inside is what matters, but you know me too well. I need all the help I can get for the outside! Fun post. Clella

Hi Karen,
I have missed you so. Yep, in the spring my computer crashed. It was easier to go without than to actually unplug everything and put it in the car to get it fixed somewhere. Then when my husband finally got around to fixing the computer, I was in the midst of planning a wedding reception to take place in our backyard that involved 275-300 people. It was a beautiful wedding but I think I just needed one gigantic rest after that one!

Now only to get a new camera. (That might take longer, this economy is finally catching up with my family.) Lib is very generous with the use of hers. She is so sweet that she doesn't want me to miss out on anymore blogging. I will be back, and I truly thought of you so often during my absence. I should have checked in more, I need your wisdom and encouragement!
PS- and I need some of your cream too! :)
