I’m always up for trying a new shampoo and conditioner, so when I saw John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Shampoo and Conditioner I was ready to give it a try. I’ve been growing my hair out and it’s gotten pretty long — but during the process I noticed the ends were looking dry and the length was weighing my baby fine locks down. This is where John Frieda’s latest formula is genius! It coats my hair in conditioners that perfectly soften my strands and help to minimize damage, all the while not adding any additional weight. And  my hair has never looked better, if I do say so myself.

The weather outside is no longer frightful, in fact around me, it’s downright delightful. Warmer temps usually mean more attention paid to unwanted hair removal. Unfortunately with the smooth-skin benefits of hair removal, can come unsightly blemishes, in the form of razor bumps and even, UGH, ingrown hairs. Tend Skin the Skincare Solution is my go-to for any problem that arises from hair removal. I just apply some to a clean cotton pad and swipe it over any affected areas. It works so incredibly effectively that I don’t mind the rubbing alcohol smell (nothing a little lotion or body spray doesn’t fix immediately). And I like the tingly sensation it leaves on my skin.
The winds have kicked up and my lips are the first to feel the effect. Those wintery, cold wind gusts make my lips dry and chapped. One year I thought they were beyond repair and worried I’d have to wait for the season to change to ever get any moisture back, then I met Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1. It’s seriously the best lip balm I’ve ever used. My favorite thing to do is to apply it just before bed and let it work its magic overnight. Because a little goes a long way, I’ve had the same tube for a couple years, so I was surprised when I learned it comes in flavors now, too — Mango, vanilla, cranberry, mint and coconut!

Sometimes at the end of a day my feet and legs are screaming, both in pain and for a loving touch. When even the removal of shoes doesn’t quiet them I know exactly what they need — Mama Mio Skincare Lucky Legs. Mama Mio is a skincare line that aims to make your skin smooth, soft and glowing! Lucky Legs achieves all three with a unique blend of ingredients that makes your legs practically sigh with relief. It even has a subtle sheen to it, that makes legs look glowingly radiant. Seriously, grab a bottle of this and your fave evening drink of choice and begin to unwind.

You can buy Lucky Legs for $19.50, two pumps is all you need so you won’t run out anytime soon, at
I’ve already professed my preference for a certain men’s razor (read why I use the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Shaving Razor, here), but when it comes to my shaving cream, I stick with the feminine variety. I’ve used so many shaving gels and creams over the years that I had lost track and gotten bored, and then I found eos Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream. First of all, the plastic packaging means I won’t have any more rusted can marks in my shower (and yes it’s recyclable). Second, it comes in a great Vanilla Bliss scent, as well as several others. Third, and probably most important, its thin lotion-like consistency actually allows for better control with my razor and yet my shave has never produced smoother skin.
