A Smooth Move from Davines

Davines-Lovely-Smoothing-Conditioner I’ve had some pretty good luck with conditioners from the DAVINES line and I had the opportunity to try another one. Now I’m not sure if it’s the weather in LA or perhaps the time of year but my hair has been kind of unruly lately and a-typically on the dry side. Their new Lovely Smoothing Conditioner really did the trick in getting my strands back on the right track. It really felt like I used a deep conditioner even though this one only required about 2 minutes on the head.

It contains rice wax and an unusually high level of vitamin E as well as Borage Seed Oil, which helps with the hydration and a little goes a long way.

$25/8.4oz @ barneys.com.

Get Gaga, Lady Gaga

MAC-Viva-Glam-Lady-Gaga-2 Lady Gaga can do no wrong these days, well, maybe with the exception of her newest single. Madonna anyone? But surely when it comes to style, she is in a class all her own and knows that a nude goes with everything. So be sure to check out her second stint with MAC with their Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick, a light neutral beige and Viva Glam Gaga Lipglass, a light sandy neutral gloss. $14.50 each @ maccosmetics.com.

Do You Smell Spring Yet? Saffron James Does.

Saffron-James-IPO-Eau-de-Parfum I think the groundhog was wearing this next scent when he came out of his hole a few weeks ago to  predict an early spring arrival! SAFFRON JAMESIPO Eau de Parfum ($85/9ml @ saffronjames.com) pays homage to the Pakalana flower (also called the Chinese Violet), which was introduced to Hawaii from southern China in the early 1800s. It also has notes of Moroccan rose, orange blossom, Tahitian gardenia and lemongrass. Very Springtime feeling … and smelling.

Bath & Body Works' New Carried Away

Bath-&-Body-Works-Carried-Away-Shimmer-Gel-Body-Lotion Since I’ve been abiding by this since last spring, I’ve discovered a lot of very cool lines and products, however, I do find myself missing out on bath and body products that don’t really have any bad ingredients in them but don’t have anything really nourishing for the skin inside either. Does that make me a bad person for wanting to use something just because it has a great scent? I hope not! This next one falls into that category but I should mention it does list Aloe Leaf as the fifth ingredient inside so there is something beneficial!!

It’s almost full-time t-shirt weather and here is one to give limbs a nice little kick. BATH & BODY WORKS latest addition is the Carried Away collection.

First the collection – Carried Away is the latest Signature Collection and the scent is a blend of raspberries, white jasmine and whipped vanilla. It’s meant to be a romantic aroma inspired by the way love sweeps you off your feet.

Then the product - I am just loving the Select-A-Shimmer Shimmer Gel and Body Lotion. It’s a two-in-one where you can adjust the amount of shimmer in the lotion each time you pump some out.

Enhance It a Little with Jemma Kidd

I go in an out of wearing what they call complexion enhancers like this next one. Some come in the form of a face primer like this one or this one and some are in the form of a powder. For the most part, most that I’ve come across are just too shimmery for someone my age to wear with the exception of the few I just  mentioned. One I will be adding to my list of keepers(color) is this JEMMA KIDD Mannequin Skin Complexion Enhancer in Canvas from the JK line. This reflective pearl beigey shimmer seems suitable for most skin tones and adds just a small kick the eyelids, as a primer, top of cheekbones, anywhere really. $24 @ target.com.

Jemma-Kidd-Mannequin-Skin-Complexion-Enhancer And be sure to check out the Jemma Kidd Make Up School making its debut on QVC on March 4th @ 10pm ET. She will showcase her Long Wear Eyeliners and more!

Estee Lauder Says "Hello Spring!"

Estee-Lauder-Nail-Lacquer-Wild-Storm Ok, I think I’m ready to talk about Spring products since the new season is just right around the corner! And it’s nice to start with this possible “it” color from ESTEE LAUDER. From their new Wild Violet New Pure Color Spring 2011, this Nail Lacquer is called Wild Storm and is like a hematite grey/black with a hint of green; it’s really close to Chanel’s Black Pearl, but this one is not as green as Chanels. $19 @ esteelauder.com.

Get Luxurious with Oils

I just did a quick look at my beauty routine and a lot of the products I’m currently using are oils – a night oil for my face, a styling oil for my hair and others. Here are two more I'm adding to the line up!

Rodin-Olio-Lusso-and-Patyka-Precious-Woods-Body-Oil RODIN Olio Lusso Luxury Face Oil – this product has quite the cult following and I can see why! The ingredients are all really-good-for-skin oils like Jasmine Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba Seed oil, and Evening Primrose Oil to name a few. I could do without the combo neroli/jasmine oil scent but I’m getting used to it. $140/1oz @ barneys.com.

PATYKA Precious Woods Body Oil – The French line redesigned their packaging last fall for their Absolis collection but thankfully didn’t change anything inside their ECOCERT certified products. This oil is 100% natural with 97.94% of them organically sourced - Wheat Germ Oil, Ylang Ylang, St. John’s Wort, Sesame, Sunflower, and Olive to name a few. And the natural scent is a little musky, a little woody, just right for this time of year. $65/8.4oz @ spiritbeautylounge.com.
