Triclosan and Osteoporosis

A few years ago when my kids were small, the world was going crazy about hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial products. I remember at the time having to argue with teachers and coaches that my daughter who was sensitive to most soap products wasn’t to use it at all. It was a hard sell. Triclosan is a chemical which is frequently used in these products as well as toothpaste and soap. A study in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism has linked Triclosan to Osteoporosis.

H&M Shirtwaist Dress

Nothing beats a classic shirtwaist dress for looking crisp. This dress from H&M offers a little upper arm coverage that we love, and a lovely below the knee length that is hard to find.

The Morning After

Just following up on L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara and Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream.  While at first pass, I liked them both, I woke up this morning with black specs around my eyes and puffy baggy eyes.  So for the mascara, I like the lengthening aspect for my upper outer lashes, but I plan to use it together with another less lengthening mascara, and I will do a better job of removing my makeup at bedtime. The CC cream feels lovely, and provides more coverage than my BB creams, but this morning my undereyes are puffy.  Today, I am trying my … Continue reading The Morning After
