This white, gel-like lotion rubs in easily and absorbs quickly so you don’t have to wait for it to dry before putting on your most fashionable frock or fav leggings.
The high tech formula leaves you hydrated for 48 hours by dealing with dryness two ways – boosting surface moisture and energizing sluggish cellular activity.
Skin’s flexibility is improved after just one week – if only we could say the same about our bodies after one week of yoga.

When you’re trapped at your desk (or wherever else you wish you weren’t) and all you can think about is sinking your feat into some grainy, hot sand, this line of products from Philosophy does a decent job of transporting your mind to an area far, far away (and where piña coladas present themselves to you almost instantly).
All of the products in the Surfer Girl Set have a wickedly sweet, kiwi papaya scent, so you can leave your atomizer at home. The boost of gold shimmer adds some glamour to your beauty routine while the exfoliating body wash banishes rough areas for good. Oh, and a lip shine that mimics surfer-chick subtlety? Yes, please.
Available at Macy’s and Sephora

You are special and should be treated like a queen. In fact, you should treat yourself to a royal pampering. And what better collection of beauty products for this, than the new Korres Kings & Queens.
Prepared with the finest herbs and spices, these majestic blends are packed full of vitamins and minerals but free from mineral oils and parabens, to keep your skin looking its absolute best. Included in the royal family are shower gels, body milks (with or without shimmer) and body butters.
What we find fascinating are the fragrances. Each scent tells the tale of a past aristocrat and is created with the “Royal Mix,” a blend of pomegranate, blue Egyptian lotus and malachite extracts. They are used for their anti-oxidant, detoxifying and healing abilities. Choose from Aztec King (Vanilla Pear), Chinese Princess (Jasmine), Queen Isabella (Cinnamon Orange), Caspar (Myrrh) and Emperor Akbar (Mango).
Be a queen for a day!

We’ve been told forever the importance of eating fruits and veggies everyday. And according to the new body care line from Yes to Carrots, we should also be applying them to our skin. The line which is brand new to Canada, consisting of everything from face moisturizers to body lotions to shampoo, follows the mantra “healthy eating for your skin”.
Reaping the benefits of organics fruits and vegetables that are bright orange (think: carrots, pumpkin, melons, and oranges), this formula is a vitamin-enriched treat for your skin. Its paraben free formula combines precious Dead Sea mud, 26 minerals and the juices of fruits and vegetables all working together to detoxify and protect the body’s largest organ.
The key to this orange inspired masterpiece is that these fruits and veggies are known for the ingredient Beta-Carotene. This magical ingredient, known for its anti-oxidant and anti-aging qualities, is great for summer because it will also help reduce UV damage to the skin and hair by aiding in the recovery process.
So practice healthy eating for your skin; you may be surprised to see the wonders these veggies will do to the outside of your body.
