kiss-my-face-cold-flu-shower-gel.jpg
Today’s lesson is one of the “be careful what you wish for” kind. I saw that Kiss My Face had a new Cold and Flu Shower and Bath Gel and I was intrigued by the concept. Its ingredients include olive oil, aloe vera and allantoin, all of which are the perfect antidote to soothe skin that is feeling achy and itchy. It also contains eucalyptus which is cooling and soothing to the skin, while fennel acts as an anti inflammatory and horehound has soothing and aromatic properties. All of this sounded delightful and I found myself wanting to put try it out for myself … well within days I found myself battling a cold that forced me to put the bath and shower gel to the test. While I can’t say that it shortened my cold or improved my symptoms I can say that it smelled great and really helped open up my sinuses. It also provided just the aromatherapy I needed to sleep the cold off. This baby’s definitely a keeper — just heed my advice, be careful what you wish for.

mark-star-status-eye-shadow-palette.jpg
When I saw the mark Star Status Eyeshadow Palette for the first time I knew it was going to be an instant hit with me. I absolutely adore its three shimmery shades that create the perfect light and shiny to dark and smokey eye effect. It comes in two different groups of shadows, one for creating the typical kohl black smokey eye (Meteor Showers), and the other is varying shades or copper and brown (Earth Angel) to give you a more natural-looking sheen — Either one is a must-have. Bonus, they’re inexpensive which makes them the perfect stocking stuffer, so grab one for you, and one for your sister and don’t forget that picky teen in your life!

You can buy mark Star Status Eyeshadow Palette for 14.00 at avon.com.

yes-to-carrots-intense-repair-hand-cream.jpgIt may be unseasonably warm where I live but that doesn’t stop me from worrying about the cold, winter air and what it does to my skin. My hands can become so dry that the skin just cracks. Worst of all is all the cuts and scrapes I seem to get as a result of them already being dried out — Just reaching into my purse can feel like a torture device. This is why I’m a proud user of Yes To Carrots Intense Repair Hand Cream. It brilliantly moisturizes my hands and is actually formulated for use in winter months. Maybe this year my hands won’t look like they’ve been working with thorny roses all day.

lavanila-healthy-deodorant.jpg
Deodorant might not be the beauty product everyone wants to talk about, but believe me it’s worth talking about. I was super-excited to find Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant! It’s not your typical powder fresh, shower fresh, chemical-ridden deodorant — it comes in great vanilla-based scents and contains no parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals or phthalates. For me this means it smells great, is perfectly safe and won’t cause any skin reactions. It’s a win on all counts.

You can get Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant for $18.00 at sephora.com.
maybelline-megaplush-mascara.jpg
I have always found that lengthening mascara formulas worked better for my thin, barely-there lashes … that is until I tried out Maybelline’s Volum’ Express The Mega Plush. There are so many things I adore about this mascara that I don’t know quite where to begin. The formula is so light and airy, Maybelline calls it a gel-mousse, I call it perfect — it glides right on to my lashes and doesn’t clump along the way. The wand has a flexor tip that gives just a little to let the brush adequately get to every lash. And the end result is killer lashes that never quit, it’s so good in fact that sometimes I wear just the mascara nothing else (on my face, of course!). Oh and the clincher is that it’s not impossible to get off at the end of the day!

You can get Maybelline Volum’ Express The Mega Plush for $7.99 at drugstore.com.
