Something Beautiful to Talk about: Great Skincare and makeup

If you didn’t get a chance, go to this link,, to listen to an interview of me and my friend Sherry from LooseLipsNY.

At the beginning of the interview, I mix up two skincare ingredients and I would like to clarify:

Argireline:  I meant to describe this and not Idebenone.  Argireline is the active ingredient that claims to be “Better than Botox.”  I find it very drying and question is efficacy. 

Idebenone: (pronounced eye-deb-eh-known) is a synthetic form of Coenzyme Q 10, it is an antioxidant that smells really bad and has oxidation issues.  Prevage is a well known skincare product that contains Idebenone. 



Why did I create Mythbuster Beauty?  To help people navigate through all the marketing hype and ridiculous promises to find beauty products that really work.


My dream is to create a place where we can come together and share our experiences of what works and what doesn’t.  I enjoy finding beauty products that are cost effective and work so well I can enthusiastically recommend them to others.  This is a place to share and get information about making choices.  By sharing, we can simplify the process and hopefully find beauty products that really work for our individual needs.


I don’t claim to have all the answers.  I love the interaction that comes from a blog, enabling me and other participants to learn from each other. 

How many of us have unused, or hardly used, beauty products stacked up in our bathrooms?  It is easy to waste considerable time, money and emotional capital on products that don’t work or that don’t suit our needs.



I recommend that buyers be critical and ask questions before purchasing even minor beauty items.

  • Be skeptical about claims that seem to good to be true. 
  • A more expensive item isn’t necessarily a better one.
  • Some of the best Beauty finds might be found right in your kitchen cupboard.

Thanks to all my muses:  Sherry at, Meg and the Diva Team at, Jen, Cecily, Mo Mommy, Tracy M, Debi, Jami, SAHMmy, IndianaFarmWife, Holly and the list goes on and on!  Together we have created something truly unique and beautiful and I am thankful for all of your support.
