Each year in November, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches (Mo) on thousands of men’s faces. We have to admit that we’re really not fans of “Mos” – too scratchy, but it’s for a great cause. Launched in Australia in 2004, Movember is the world’s largest charity event raising funds for cancer affecting men – specifically prostate cancer. (more…)

Eyes give away your age and they certainly give away the number of hours you managed to sleep last night, so it is important to keep them in top form. Eye cream is the prefect weapon against dry, puffy, dark and lined looking peepers. Applying eye cream twice a day to clean skin makes such a difference. So, slather away! (more…)

The sun presents a whole new set of skin problems, whether you suffer a sunburn from a bad application or a greasy formula causes a breakout. From water resistant to all-natural sunscreen, here are a few picks for every need under the sun:
Biotherm Ultra-Fluid Body Milk Sun Protection SPF 30
Part of the Biotherm Sun Multi Protection line not only protects from both UVA and UVB rays, but moisturizes skin for up to eight hours. The lighter consistency of this product goes on like a lotion, but be careful of squeezing out too much.
Kiehl’s Vital Sun Protection SPF 30 sunscreen
This all-sport formula provides UVA, UVB and broad-spectrum coverage for your skin and is water resistant for up to 80 minutes in the water.
Available at Kiehl’s stores and Bergdorf Goodman
Clinique UV Response SPF 50
With a high SPF, this heavy duty sunscreen is a skin-friendly lightweight, oil-free lotion. This formula also contains liposomes that release anti-oxidants when exposed to UV light. Packaged in a upright tube, it lets you squeeze out every last bit of lotion.
Burt’s Bees SPF 30 Chemical-Free Sunscreen with Hemp Seed Oil
This 100% natural sunscreen provides protection through Titanium Dioxide which creates a fine barrier to reflect harmful UVA and UVB rays while hemp seed oil prevents the loss of moisture from your skin. The tube packaging is both economical and environmentally friendly as 25% of it is made from post-consumer waste.
L’Occitane Do Brasil Sunscreen Cream SPF 30 -Available July 2008
Containing only natural colours and fragrances, the new Buriti do Pará line of sun protection contains no chemical filters and is dermatologist tested. This mineral based sunscreen offers the standard broad spectrum protection as well as being immediately effective upon application, which is especially helpful if you are one of those people who forget to apply 30 minutes before sun exposure.
Kiehl’s Ultra Protection Water-Based Sunscreen Lotion SPF 25
If you have breakout prone or sensitive skin, use a water-based lotion. This non-greasy formula is light enough to wear under makeup for every day. Don’t worry if too much comes out of the bottle as liberal applying will go a long way.
Available at Kiehl’s stores and Bergdorf Goodman

Over the past two weeks I have been using a new moisturizer, eye cream and exfoliant, and I am in LOVE. What am I using? Biotherm’s Ride Repair products.
I had run out of my usual face cream and thought I’d like to try something new. My skin had been looking so dull, and I was noticing that my fine lines were not looking so fine anymore…and I am only 36! I had also been having a terrible time with breakouts on my jawline. These products stated that they rejuvenate the skin and work on those perky wrinkles – I thought why not give them a go.
I honestly cannot believe that my skin is looking and feeling so much better, in such a short time. I guess the moisturizer I was using was not making my skin happy at all. My skin now is noticeably brighter and feels so soft. Even those nasty crinkles under my eyes are softening. No I cannot claim that they have gone, but softening is good to me.
Both the Rides Repair Yeux and Rides Repair Jour smooth into the skin almost immediately and do not leave a shiny film. They smell clean and fresh and not overly perfumed. The same can be said for the Instant Polisher. Also my skin is healing nicely where my blemishes are and I don’t seem to be breaking out as much.
The ingredients that really should be credited for their hard work are:
- Two forms of silicium – one that has an instant smoothing effect on wrinkles and is a mineral derived ingredient, and a fundamental element found in the earth’s crust.
- The other with its intense regenerating power is an essential component of the dermal matrix. These two complementary forms reveal outstanding anti-wrinkle power.
- and Thermal Plankton (PETP) that works to keep skin looking young.
Rides Repair Instant Polisher
Rides Repair Day
Contains a combination of pure silicium with dermobiotic tehnology to reduce wrinkles and smooth skin.
Rides Repair Eye
Formulated with hydroxyproline, an amino-acid and the two forms of silicium, assist in reducing crow’s feet and rejuvenating the delicate skin around the eye.
Here’s to looking younger!
