Empties: Hits & Misses

I’m happy to say that this round of Empties were mostly all Hits.  Money well spent!

Product Review: Skin&Co Roma

  I received these two Skin&Co products in a sample box recently.  Mostly, I want to talk about the TRUFFLE THERAPY SERUM which is absolutely wonderful!  It smells wonderful and I noticed a positive effect on my skin almost immediately.  It’s expensive, $75 for 1oz. but I’d buy a full size tube if I came across it again.  Amazon has it at a discount.  Read more about its benefits and ingredients

January Favorites

Happy New Year!  Here are a few of my favorites for January. Dew Me Moisturizing Makeup Setting Spray by Urban Decay: Having dry skin, I prefer to use a spray rather than powder to set my makeup.  This one is great.  Your makeup will stay in place throughout the workday or evening.  And, your skin will glow!  This is not a matte finish hence the name, Dew Me!  Available at Sephora

Empties: Hits & Misses

There aren’t any “misses” in this round of Empties or Products I’ve used up.  That means money well spent!

August Favorites

  I’m in Las Vegas and it’s hot!  Some of my summer favorites. RoCĀ® Gommage Doux Lissant Soft Smoothing Scrub: I bought this exfoliating scrub in Canada and love it.  This is the French version which has a few more ingredients than the US version but the they’re very similar.  Not only does it work beautifully as an exfoliant, it smells incredible, like a combination of flowers and Love’s Baby

Product Review: Spongeables

  Check out these pre-soaped exfoliating body scrubbers from Spongeables.  I usually keep one of each in my shower, the body scrubber and the foot scrubber.  I’ve turned my friends onto them by giving them as gifts and they love them. Find them at Ulta.

Product Review: Soap and Glory

  Soap and Glory is a British beauty brand and one of my favorite lines.  Their range of bath and body products are wonderful with scents to die for such as Sugar Crush.  Bath and body products are easily found at Sephora or Amazon.  Sexy Mother Pucker lip glosses and gloss sticks are awesome and carried by Sephora.  Their complete cosmetic range is harder to get ahold of in the
