Eve Lom: Cleanser
Plain and simple: THE BEST CLEANSER ON EARTH. There you go. End of review. Seriously, I love this cleanser so much, I bought the largest tub available. It’s so amazing, you will experience a difference in your skin after just one use. This cleanser has a slightly gritty texture, but once rubbed in your hands (5 seconds), it becomes a smooth, light creamy oil. The blend of Egyptian chamomile, hops, clove and eucalyptus oil, together with cocoa butter, means that you get a cleanser, toner and exfoliator all in one. Apply the cleanser like this: rub it together in your hands, massage it into your face and then take a steaming hot muslin cloth (included in large tub) to take it off. It will take 3-4 wipe downs to get everything, but once you do, your skin will be silky smooth and skin issue-free. Enjoy every second of this, really...it’s like a mini facial. The cleanser improves skin circulation, and gives you balanced, glowing skin to boot!
Harvey Prince: Ageless Anti-aging perfume
I don't necessarily understand how a fragrance can make you smell younger (other than bubble gum, strawberries and cookies, reminding me of my youthful days). Ageless Perfume has an aroma of fresh fruit with a hint of a musk. While it did not make me feel any younger, the fragrance smells wonderful. The blend of fruit and jasmine is a nice combination which created a light, yet robust scent. When you walk into a room and someone seeks you out because they are attracted to your perfume, you know that you have found a good one. Ageless has great staying power. Just a light mist in the air to walk into is the perfect way to apply it. I wear Ageless to work, play and a night out on the town. It is a perfume of all occasions.
Aveeno: Positively Nourishing Refreshing 24-Hour Body Moisturizer Lotion
My favorite ever drugstore brand lotion is Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion. It’s a rock star product for year round use. So when this new Aveeno lotion came out, I was all over it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t stack up. The Blueberry and Goji Berries formula smells okay, and it feels smooth going on, but in no way does it hold moisture for 24 hours. Not even close.
Stacy Ray: Heart on Sleeve tee in gray
This is my new favorite tee! My gray cotton long-sleeve Heart on Sleeve shirt has been worn more days in a row than you want to know. I layer over, layer under ... it’s so warm and comfy and I love the color. I also like that it’s solid everywhere but the sleeves, which are burnout stamped with a heart on one side. The length of the tee is perfect, too ... not too long, but long enough. So, here's to wearing my heart on my sleeve!
LORAC: Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in Star Struck
Once again, I attempt the smokey eye look with this new eye shadow that claims anyone can create a smoky eye. And actually, it lived up to its claim! The Star Struck color is a neutral base color with a plum and darker plum shade, which work well with my fair complexion and blue eyes. The shimmering baked shadows — baked on terra cotta — create a silky smooth texture that provide long-lasting, highly pigmented shades. You can use it wet or dry. I found it was easier to use dry, but for an amped up look, it was nice to be able to moisten the shadows to deepen the color. This eye shadow truly lasts with no creasing! And did I mention, it's easy to blend? That is the key to the smoky eye ... ease of blending the product. This palette lasts all day and into the night (no kidding). This eye shadow is not purse size, though. It's quite a thick case, so definitely a keeper for the bathroom vanity. I'm wearing it to all my holiday soirees!
ZENSATION: Super Tripeptide Enhancer
Don't you just love when a product goes on light, sinks right in and feels so weightless that you don't know you put it on? Zensation Skincare of Switzerland has created a mild serum that does just that. More like a thick water than a gel, a little went a long way. I used this on my face and neck each morning and evening for a number of weeks. Honestly, I could tell the difference in the first week, because those close to me told me! Even though they didn't know my secret, my friends told me my skin looked amazing, and my sister said I looked refreshed. The serum was hydrating and gave my skin a radiance. And, those fine lines were smoothed within a few weeks of use. I love that Zensation is formulated with natural Swiss Alpine plant and fruit extracts. Free of alcohol, colorants, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil or paraben, the serum gets its scent from naturally derived fragrance and essential oils. Natural ingredients ... and it works! Remember that you do need to follow usage with your normal day or night skin care regimen. Since the product dispenses evenly from a pump bottle, ensuring you get the same amount each time, it is easy to use — no muss, no fuss, smells good, feels good and makes you look good. A true winner!
