My First Giveaway!!!!! Thank You SkinActives!

Hi Everyone. I’m so excited because this is my first-ever giveaway contest!   You know that when I give a heads up on skincare products that I like—it’s one that I really really like!

Such is the case with SkinActives. I absolutely love the Formulation For Beginners Kit because the skin cream that I whipped up is super-hydrating and –especially for mature skin—hydrating is what we need in skincare products!

The kind folks at SkinActives have sent me a Serum Formulation for Beginners Kit, which I’ll be reviewing shortly.  The kit is fun and will make you feel like a scientist when you mix the ingredients. And the feel of the serum is so smooth and also hydrating!! This is a wonderful kit valued at $45.00 and I’m telling you, you will have enough of the ingredients in this kit to make a long time length’s of serum!


All the goodies included in the kit are pictured above……

Instructions for kit

..and your checklist of contents and instructions will be included!!

SkinActives will be sending a serum kit to one of my friends! I can’t tell you how happy this makes me because it’ll give someone the chance to see just how great these products are!

Here’s how to enter!!! Follow  SkinActives and Atypical60 on Instagram!

About Catherine

Far from perfect, but enjoying life as a non-perfect and flawed individual at 60 years young. I'm still wondering what I'll be when I grow up! The characters in my life's screenplay include my better half. He is a refined Frenchman who grew up in Paris and summered in St. Tropez. I grew up in Long Island and summered in Long Island. I am not refined. My three grown children are also a big part of my life. For their sake, they happily live where their careers have taken them! But I can still mother them from a distance! I write about the mundane. I write about deeply shallow issues. But whatever I write or muse about--it'll always be a bit on the humorous and positive side! It's all good!

    I read your earlier review with i great interest. Like you, I am of a certain age and on a budget, so finding a way to access quality skincare that is not full of anonymous chemicals for a ridiculous price was a revelation. I love reading your blog and can’t wait to follow your French adventures.

    Oooh a giveaway! You’ve hit the big-time! Not entering, I’ll let someone else compete for the prize, just wanted to comment anyway 🙂

    Oh wow, what a great giveaway. I have Skin Actives on my list of products to try after reading what you previously said about it. Using this line really sounds like having a spa treatment everyday, and who wouldn’t love that?? Fingers crossed!

    SkinActives supplies great products and provides budget-friendly anti-aging products especially for women “of a certain age.” Thank you for this giveaway. It would be awesome to win this prize!

    I’d LOVE to win this product– hydration is key and I don’t know how to get it. Some days it feels as though my facial skin is turning into a crispy potato chip.

    I’m beginning to think beauty products work on everyone’s fine lines but mine..! Or I can be like a celebrity…and get the fillers and everything else and swear it’s my beauty product….ugh…I don’t want to be drowning in non working beauty lotions and potions anymore…
