      When I started this round of chemo, all of my freckles came out and I became very pale. I looked horrible. I don't usually wear a lot of make-up but decided I wanted to not look sick all the time even though I felt sick most of the time). I called the Clinque counter at my mall and they actually matched me with a cancer survivor who worked there. I made an appointment and she had me looking fantastic in no time. She understood all the side effects I was having because she had them too. I don't think Clinque is organic but you may want to try visiting one of the major make-up chains at the mall to see if they can fix you up. Most of the people that work there love challenges like fixing scars or finding ways to hide imperfections.

      I did make it clear before I went for my appointment that I didn't have the money to invest in all sorts of products, I just wanted something to help me through this time. They were respectful of that and didn't try to up sell me while I was there. I actually appreciated it and often go back and buy a lip gloss or eye shadow from them because they were so great.

      Thank you - that's a really good idea to visit one of the major counters & i do like clinique products. I'm so happy you found something to help you - silly as it may seem to some considering everything else going on with cancer it's nice to try to at the very least to look like some semblance of yourself. Thanks again for information.
