Holiday Gift Guide for your Co-Worker

There is no question that co-workers are a big part of our lives. Heck, we see more of them than we see of our best friends and our family. Don’t over look them this holiday season! A little something from our gift guide will keep the peace around the water cooler. (more…)

Lip Rx

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

The secret to a celeb-worthy pout isn’t the entirely in the specific type of gloss or shade of ‘stick – a lot lies in how you treat your lips.

MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher Gentle exfoliation is the key to soft, kissable lips. M·A·C Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher is a secret weapon in the war against dryness. Part gentle exfoliant, part nourishing conditioner this product is easy to apply and it works. One swipe over the lip area and a little rub action will wipe away dead skin and leave lips lovely. The exfoliator smoothes and the conditioner preps so whatever you put on over top of your newly naked lips will glide on and stay on.

The best part is the sparkly packaging and snap lid so you can throw it in your purse or overnight bag without worry.

Treat Beauty

Friday, November 2nd, 2007

Marnie Massie is the brains behind Treat Beauty, the cruelty free line. It is not surprising that she is receiving lots of press with these calorie free goodies. I am sure this new addition will be a celebrity favorite too…

Cacao Lip Scrub is a delicious formula made with pure rich shea butter, sugar and cacao a super antioxidant concentrate higher in vitamin c than an orange. Massie’s innovative recipe will make lips beautiful and smooth so lipstick and lip stain goes on smoother, lasts longer and looks sweet.

Sounds lip-licking good to me!

Pretty Jewels

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

July 2007, saw the launch of Alexandra’s Jewels. Based out of New Hampshire, this all-natural skincare line was developed out of concern for what harmful ingredients might be going into our beauty products.

Alexandra Wolf is the woman behind the brand “The use of parabens and other common chemicals in cosmetics are now giving evidence that they cause cancer, especially Breast Cancer. I was convinced all the more that making my skincare line of products earth sustainable was the path for me.”

Two years were spent with formulators developing these specialty skincare products. Each ‘Jewel’ is free of parabens, polypropylene, petroleum jelly and fragrance, and the packaging is recyclable too. No cardboard boxes are used but the sweetest little silver bags to envelope the jewelesque casings.

Alexandra’s Jewels is broken up into two categories – Lip Jewels and Body Jewels. I sampled three products from these collections:

Butter Me Beautiful
This whipped cream is full of antioxidants and contains Shea Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil, and Moringa Oil. Light and fluffy, this product soaked into my skin immediately and left it smooth and soft, without a trace of greasiness.

Sugar Lips Polish
Brown Sugar, Moringa Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamins A, C and Calcium assist to help revive and restore lips. I had to stop myself licking my lips. The aroma from the brown sugar was delicious!

Lip Masque
Made with Shea Butter and Tamanu Oil this lip treatment can be applied before bed or during the day to fight chapped lips. I have been using this for the past couple of nights and have woken up to kissably soft lips.
