Cetaphil is mostly known for it's cleanser. It's a favorite with Dermatologists because of it's "gentleness". I don't use their cleanser myself, but I have started using their daytime moisturizer. It's a light non-greasy lotion that sinks right in. It's fragrance free and non-comedogenic so it's great for all skin types and won't irritate. It may be in my head, but this is the only moisturizer with SPF that hasn't caused any breakouts. And best of all, it's inexpensive ($9) and available pretty much everywhere!


Eve's New Look...

I feel like everyone is trying to jump on this hardcore/punk/rock look.



Mally Beauty: Life, Love and A Really Great Lip Gloss...

According to celeb makeup artist Mally Roncal, one of the top ways you can stay looking fresh and young is with a light, glossy lip. Her signature look is glowing skin, a smokey eye and a sexy nude lip. Doesn't that sound like classic J.Lo? I also love the looks she's created on Bey and Mary J too. Anyways, I've always had a hard time creating the nude lip and always ended up with a too pale, washed out, ashy looking lip....sooo not "fresh and young". It just wasn't an easy look to create...until now!

Last year Mally added City Chick Nude Lip Kit to her makeup line, Mally Beauty. It's a 3-step nude lip kit that is so easy to apply. The kit includes a double-ended lip pencil (primer and liner) and a nude lip gloss. First you apply the primer that creates the base for your nude lip, next you line your lips and last apply your gloss and VOILA! Honestly, sometimes, if I'm in a rush, I will only wear the gloss. It's great on it's own too!

The kit comes in two shades: Nude Light and Nude Deep and is available @ QVC and HBendel for $25


Luxe For Less: Origins Ginger Scrub...

Origins Incredible Spreadable Scrub was one of my first scrub obsessions. White and Brown Sugars exfoliate away dead dull skin while Olive Oil hydrates. And the ginger smell is oohhh sooo heavenly...I loved it and I got a few friends hooked too.
(Available at Origins stores for $26)

This morning I stopped by Rite-Aid to um....I dunno...I just did. Anyway, I stumbled on Booth's Ginger Sugar Body Scrub and took a whiff and it took me back to my Origins days. Simple ingredients include sugar to exfoliate and Cocoa and Shea butter to hydrate. The spicy ginger smell and texture is just the same as Origins'. Great alternative!!!
(Available at Rite-Aid stores for $6)


Crocs For A Cure...

Perfume For Your Hair?...

Everyone knows that "perfuming" your hair is the best way to make a scent last....right? Spritz some of your fav fragrance on a hairbrush and brush it through your strands, or spritz the air and walk through the fragrance, some of it will settle on your hair. But to make a perfume specifically for your hair? Hmmmm, a bit much, no?
Tom Ford's Luminous Hair Perfume promises to leave your hair soft, shiny and bouncy, thanks to the pro-vitamin B5 it contains, and scented with his best selling Black Orchid fragrance. But a 1.7 ounce bottle costs $80!!

Pink Sugar has a less expensive ($15) one that promises to protect your hair from harmful UV rays while lightly scenting it with notes of vanilla and musk.

But then the question becomes, what if I dont want to smell like my hair perfume one day. Then what? Will my hair scent clash with my body scent? What's a girl tuh do?

What do you think? "Genius" or "Soooo not necessary"...


Jessica Gets Fancy...

Jessie Simps launched her new fragrance Fancy over the weekend at Dillard's in Texas.

I just can't help but to comment on Rihanna's fabulousness lately. Last night she attended the 2008 Spirit of Life Award Dinner and looked absolutely stunning! I'm lovin' her whole look from head to toe. And her skin...wow...it just glows all over!!!!

Luxe For Less: Neutrogena Body Oil...

I've raved in the past about Neutrogena's body oil. It's a light, sesame oil that is great for moisturiztion. Once applied, it leaves a soft and silky feel with a healthy glow. It's best applied immediately after bathing to damp skin. Available for about $9.

Equate Body Oil is a similar body oil with the same benefits. It's claims are that it conditions and moisturizes the skin leaving it soft and supple. Available for about $4 @ Walmart.

Think Pink...

Breast Cancer Awareness Month starts today. For the last two decades National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been dedicated to increasing awareness of breast cancer issues. However, awareness and education is a year round mission and a lot more needs to be accomplished.

A few beauty companies are participating in this mission by providing limited edition beauty products where a portion of proceeds go to help the cause.

Aveda is raising funds with it's limited-edition Hand Relief cream. The cream softens and smoothes hands making them noticeably softer and smoother. Ingredients include hydrating plant emollients, humectants, exfoliating fruit acids and vitamins A and E. I've been using this stuff for years. It's soft and silky and smells diviiiineeee!
