Rebecca Shirey, Woman, in her 70s
Please tell us a little about yourself. Your age, your activities/hobbies and your skin care routine.
My name is Rebecca Shirey, my friends call me Becky.. I’ve been married to my college sweetheart for 49 years. We have 3 adult children, and 9 grandchildren who call me Mimi. I celebrated my 70th birthday last summer.
I’m a proud wife of a veteran. My husband served as a Chaplain in the Army for 26 years. During those years, I volunteered in both community and chapel organizations within the military community.
For the past 25 years, I’ve traveled internationally speaking at Christian women’s conferences and retreats. My husband and I also speak at marriage conferences.
I’m an avid reader. I enjoy fashion and home decor.
During my early thirties, I developed an interest in skin care and started a consistent skin care routine, including cleanser, toner, moisturizer. I also began using Retin A, a prescription only product, because of an ongoing struggle with acne.
Even in my 70’s I still get occasional breakouts. This is one of the reasons a quality skin care routine is a priority for me.
During my young adult years, my ginger hair started turning white. I stopped coloring my hair in 1991, but I still have the sensitive skin associate with red-heads. I’ve used SPF sun protection for about 40 years.
Out of the goPure products you have, which is your favorite? Why is it your favorite?
My all-time favorites are the trio of serums, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Retinol.
These three powerful serums are the first goPure products I tried. I noticed improved appearance, better hydration, and increased brightening.
Lately, I’ve relied on the Restorative Hydrating Masque because of a heavier travel schedule. Airline travel is dehydrating, so I’ve used this product more often than usual. I love the instant results I get.
How did you hear about goPure products?
I was first approached by goPure, through Instagram, with an invitation to try the trio of serums, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Retinol.
After using these serums for a couple of weeks, I was impressed with the results. So, I ordered the 10-piece Skin Care System from their goPure website.
Were you using a different skin care line? Were the products similar?
When I discovered goPure, I was using a mixture of products, some luxury brands and some brands available in drugstores.
Did you experience results with those other brands?
I experienced some good results with other brands, but I was concerned about the high price of luxury brand creams and anti-aging products. Good skincare shouldn’t require a separate line-item on the budget. I questioned if the results were worth the price.
What do you love about goPure?
I sold skincare years ago, so I knew what to look for. Here are a few things I have experienced and researched about goPure products.
I began using the other goPure products, adding them one at a time to see how my skin responded. Now, I use the entire product line regularly.
• Affordable price
• Results I can see
• Smoother, brighter skin
• Decreased dryness
• Botanical extracts
• Effective active ingredients
• Cruelty free
• No auto-ship ever
• Guaranteed purity
• No artificial fragrance or dyes
What are the results you experienced in using goPure products?
I’ve seen measurable results. My skin is brighter, smoother and clearer. My skin still feels hydrated when I wake up in the morning. I like the improvement around my eyes, including my eyelid.
How simple is the product to use?
Each time I order from goPure, I receive the product and instruction guide, a great help in using the products effectively.
My skin care routine morning and evening takes only a few minutes.
I wash with Vitamin C cleanser, follow with the Hyaluronic Toner that is thick and moisture rich. I then apply the appropriate serum (for morning or evening), layer on the appropriate moisturizer, and finish with the Youth Glow Eye Gel.
A couple of times a week, I use the Microdermabrasian Resurfacing product, and as often as I need, the Restorative Enzyme Masque.
I also use Argan Oil all over, and the Rosehip Oil on my face, when needed
What does the product look like, smell like, and feel like on your skin?
Since goPure products have no added fragrances, the products smell clean and natural.
The serums and creams go on effortlessly. I pat them over my face, allowing a minute or two between each one for effective absorption.
I also love using the Jade Roller to help my skin absorb the products and because its relaxing to use.
Do you trust the brand goPure to deliver?
The goPure line gives me consistent quality, results I can see, affordable price, and timely shipping. I have confidence in goPure’s commitment to quality and effective skin care. I’ve never been happier.
Will you recommend goPure to others?
I recommend goPure on a regular basis. I love when people comment on my skin and I can suggest they try goPure.
What are your thoughts on aging?
Aging well is more than appearance. Aging is an attitude as much as it is a number. It’s confidence in the season you are living. It’s a total package of taking care to observe good nutrition, drinking plenty of water, staying active physically, and guarding emotional and spiritual health.
What are some positive things about aging?
Life experiences bring maturity, wisdom, and contentment. I see, more than ever, the necessity of surrounding myself with positive influences, and staying mentally fit by trying new things, and challenging myself to move beyond my comfort level.
And perhaps the best part of growing older—grandchildren!
What do you like to do to unwind on the weekends?
I’m often traveling on weekends, so my down time usually happens on a couple of days during the week. I love browsing through antique shops, reading a great book, waking up with a good cup of coffee, and sometimes doing absolutely nothing.
What is ONE suggestion you could pass on to anyone reading this about anything you want to suggest?
Consider volunteering for charities or religious organizations who are reaching out to the less fortunate. It will help put your life into perspective.
