Skin that's still 25? Maybe. Just maybe (+ a super-fab skincare deal)

A few weekends ago, just after my 40th birthday, a mom I talk to regularly looked at me quizzically after we were discussing the year I got married, when I got divorced. 

 “You must have been very young when you had Lil E,” she said, looking at me sideways. “How old are you?”

 I told her and she laughed. 

I thought you were 25. Seriously. I thought you must have had him so young.” Then I laughed.

 This mom is my new best friend. She is actually younger than I am, but you know how this goes -- we all have our skewed perspectives on how other people, particularly women, and even more particularly, moms, look. She thought I looked  fetal, and I love hearing that, but of course I don’t. 

Happy? Healthy? Hilarious? Slathering on the lipstick? All yes. But, ummmm, so not 25.

I'm afraid my skin is far too finicky for another change, after March's 'oooh, let's try a new makeup' disaster. But I AM dying to know which concealers and concealing techniques you swear by.

I couldn't find any info on their page about their policy on animal testing. Do you know if these are animal-safe?
