Top-5-Skincare-Products.jpgWe’re always trying new skincare products. And we have to say, it takes a lot to make it into our list of favorites! But these five have definitely done it. We’re glowing, we’re radiant, we’re soft and smooth … and we’re sharing the secrets with you.

Bliss Fabulips Softening Lip Balm
Soften up your pucker with this unassuming little while tube, thanks to a combination of shea butter, jojoba and grapeseed oils, and Vitamin E.
$16 at

Bite Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub
Not only does this smell and taste fantastic, but the exfoliating beads make our lips feel unbelievably smooth in seconds. Perfect after a winter of horrible chapping and dryness.
$18 at

Clarisonic Mia2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System
If there were only one product we could take to a desert island, this would be it. We’ve long been obsessed with every Clarisonic product on the market, and this new vibrating skincare brush—with two settings—has gotten rid of every trace of dryness.
$149 at

Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate
A serum that promises to make you look younger? Why wouldn’t we try it? And while we’re not sure we’ve taken years off our lives by applying this religiously every day, we will say we have a previously unknown glow.
$60 at

Ole Henriksen Truth Creme Advanced Hydration
A moisturizer that isn’t greasy, sinks into skin immediately and makes us radiant? Yes please. Luckily, this one does all three.
$45 at
Julia Roberts’ famous mega-watt smile was shining pretty in Lancôme Rouge in Love Lipstick lipstick at the ‘Mirror Mirror’ premiere in Los Angeles this past weekend. The Lasting Kiss shade, a pretty, nude pink color, is sure to be a super hot shade for Lancôme this spring. 
The color is beautifully pink with a subtle sheen that makes it look soft and shiny. And best of all, the Rouge in Love lipsticks are formulated to last six hours and come in high-potency colors. 

You can get Lancôme Rouge in Love Lipstick in Lasting Kiss for $25 at
Chanel-Graphite.jpgWe try a lot of nail polishes. A lot of nail polishes. But right now, there’s only one we’re obsessed with—and it’s Chanel Graphite Le Vernis Nail Colour.

Is it silver? Is it grey? Is it charcoal? The good news is, it’s all of the above! One coat glides on sleek and full of gorgeous color. Glittery particles are packed into a dark grey base, creating a color like none other we’ve ever seen. We don’t have anything like it in our collection, especially since it isn’t rough or gritty like most glittery polishes.

This color looks equally as good on fingers as it does on toes. We just can’t get enough of it!

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.
TokyoMilk-Eiffel-Tower-Bubble-Bath.jpgWant to bring a little romance from Paris into your home? Then look no further than TokyoMilk Eiffel Tower Bubble Bath No. 15.

We absolutely love the packaging of this bubble bath—it’s truly one of the most ingenious we’ve  come across. The oversized glass bottle features a sketch of the famed Eiffel Tower, which can only be seen when the bottle is directly in front of you. It adds a dash of je ne sais quoi into any bathtub, we must say!

Notes of mandarin, tuberose, gardenia and vetiver blend and meld into a scent that’s beautiful, luxurious and distinctly unique. Skin is left soft and smooth since the bubble bath is formulated with extracts of Japanese green tea, avocado and olive oils, and Vitamin E. And the best part is, a few capfuls produce tons of delightfully scented bubbles.

So pretend you’re walking along the Seine the next time you’re in the bathtub. Who’s to stop you?

TokyoMilk Eiffel Tower Bubble Bath No. 15 retails for $22-$36 at
