I Attended A "Look Good... Feel Better" Workshop


God has provided me with a neat little blessing that I wanted to share... A few days ago, I was able to attend a "Look Good... Feel Better" workshop - a program for cancer patients that helps them "cope with the appearance related side-effects of treatment." It is offered FREE OF CHARGE through a partnership with the American Cancer Society, the Professional Beauty Association/National Cosmetology Association, and the Personal Care Products Council Foundation.

Licensed Cosmetologists came to show me and other women how to apply cosmetics in a way that helps cover the effects of chemotherapy, radiation, or other forms of cancer treatments. They also showed us different ways to wear a scarf on our heads, aside from just tying it in the back. It was a helpful and fun experience.

Here are some of the products I received - FREE! (I totalled all of it up and believe it came to over $250 worth of name-brand products! I would have never paid that much just for makeup!)

Clarins Super Restorative Foundation - DiorShow Mascara - Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Eye Shadow - Clinique Moisture Surge - Clinique All About Eyes - Revlon Pressed Powder - Revlon Eye Liner - Neutrogena Bronzer - L’Oreal Infallible 6 Hour Lipgloss - Avon Healthy Makeup Concealer - Mary Kay Lip Liner - Chanel Lipstick - And more....
 
The next day, I tried my own hand at applying some of the products, and came up with a before and after picture of myself. (NOTE:  I used as little makeup as possible to achieve a natural look that hopefully brings out the best of my features. The makeup is not "caked on" but you can see a subtle difference, especially in the eyes.)


If you, or any of the ladies in your life, are undergoing treatments for cancer, please contact your local American Cancer Society for more information about this program. Remember, its FREE! So, you have nothing to lose!

(Oh, and thanks to my sister-in-law, Julee, for the knitted hat you see in the picture! She is selling these hats and other great products so, if interested in knowing more, contact me and I'll put you in touch with her!)
