New Interesting Things

Welcome to the Second Most Interesting Woman in the World’s blog.

Here are my newest posts:

  • Link: Sunscreen Active Ingredients - I’m in the middle of building a long post, but I wanted to take time out from that to share a link I found. I follow a YouTuber, “Hot and Flashy“. Angie discusses skin care and makeup for older women, and sometimes gets skin care science geeky (which I love). Every year she discusses sunscreens. […]
  • Review: CeraVe PM Face Moisturizer - What is it? a light moisturizer with lots of good ingredients Manufacturer/Company: CeraVe, see my cleanser review for ownership details. I’ve been promoting CeraVe products a lot recently. I have no association with CeraVe; they don’t know who I am. But they make very good stuff with an excellent ingredient deck, and for very reasonable […]
  • Product Review: Gold Bond Lotion & Cream - Full Names: Gold Bond Ultimate Men’s Essentials Everyday Moisture Hydrating Lotion and Gold Bond Ultimate Men’s Essentials Everyday Moisture Hydrating Lotion (what a mouthful!) Available in body lotion and hand cream (but you can use either on either). What is it? The best dry skin lotion & cream I’ve ever used. Manufacturer/Company: Gold Bond is part of Chattem, […]
  • Gray Market Products - Gray Market – Caveat Emptor* If you look on several major online retailers for skincare and makeup, you may see the same product listed several times, with very different prices. Until just a couple weeks ago, I didn’t understand why this happened. Now I know, and it’s important information. What is “Gray Market”? Most of […]
  • Product Review: CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser - What is it? A high quality, low priced, non-foaming face cleanser Manufacturer/Company: CeraVe is its own company. As of January 2017, it’s part of the L’Oreal family. Quantity/price/usage:  A 12 ounce bottle costs between $10 and $15, depending on where you buy it. At one pump per wash, it should last several months. Active/Good ingredients: […]
  • New Category: Single Product Reviews - I’m starting a new series of posts, single product reviews. I’ve found lots of excellent products over my life — and many are new, or old but still around. I want to let you know about them, thus the reviews. Products I’m thinking of include the things I talk about on my blog: cosmetics & […]
  • Good Deals – Bed, Bath & Beyond Coupons - If you live in the United States, chances are there’s a Bed, Bath and Beyond store near you. You may already be on their mailing list. If not, it’s worth joining. I just get the paper mailings, not the emails. About the Store If you’re unfamiliar with Bed, Bath and Beyond, they are a household […]
  • How to Wash Your Face - You might think this is obvious … but I was washing my face wrong for decades. So here’s a short post on how to do it right. How NOT to Wash 1. Fill the sink with water Why Not: your sink may have dirt, old toothpaste globs, or your teenage son’s beard stubble in it. […]
  • I’m Back … I Hope - Yes, Hilda’s back. For the last 18 months, I was involved in a major work project, with major travel. Several things in my life had to take a back seat, including this blog. The project is over now, and I’m able to blog again. Stay tuned for new posts. I had time to outline several […]
  • Holy Grail with Foundation My Holy Grail Foundation - If you follow any beauty bloggers/vloggers for long, you’ll hear the term “Holy Grail Foundation”. By this, they mean the perfect foundation, the one that does everything they want (and nothing they don’t want). Foundations are tricky make-up products, finding the perfect one is about as easy as … finding the real Holy Grail*. I […]
