Photo Coyote Yet another version of an ordinary reality.

Mmm Mmm Good

I often get compliments on my complexion. People want to know what skin care regime I use and what my secret is. Well… In all honesty, other than scrubbing with a Buf-Puf twice a week, I don’t really have one.

In my teens and twenties, I went through phases of using expensive skin care products — Clinique was my fave — but I now find the routine tiresome. These days, my easy-squeezy skin care routine consists of using any kind of high quality, organic shampoo as an all-in-one hair, face and body cleanser. I know, I know. The horror. But, what can I say? It works.

That said, I do covet a certain moisturizer that I absolutely swear by. It’s a product I discovered many moons ago when I worked in a health food store, and I’ve happily used it every day since then. It’s called Skin Trip, made by the Mountain Ocean folks who, among other awesome things, are supporters of the Safe Cosmetics Campaign. (Check it out — it’s important!)

I’m unabashedly enamored of Skin Trip’s yummy fresh coconutty fragrance, which fades to barely noticeable within minutes of applying it. It has a lightweight consistency, which is perfect for normal to oily skin types, and applying a second coat works really well when my skin is extra thirsty. Either way, a tiny bit is all it takes. And, as you may have guessed, I use it on both my face and my body. Simple is good!

I can’t say for sure if my decades-long devotion to using Skin Trip is the reason people think I’m light-years younger than I actually am, but since it’s the only moisturizer I use, I’m thinking there just might be a connection. If you’d like to give Skin Trip a try, you can get it for cheap at Just click on the link below to be magically transported to the website where you can grab yourself a bottle of yum!
