What's On Your Beauty List?

Spring is finally here so perk up your parts with some new products. Are you ready? I am  and here’s how I'm doing it. 

1. Hands TOUCH GermBlock ($5.99/1oz @ – this one claims to protect hands from germs for up to 6 hours! How do you know it’s working? Well, I can’t think of a way to test it so just have to take their word for it or better yet, test it out. Available in Unscented, OceanMist, Tropical Breeze, and Mint Green Tea Aloe.

2. Refresh - PIXI BEAUTY Vitamin Wakeup Mist ($15/2.70oz @ – when temps rise I make sure I always have a face mist at the ready and Pixi just came out with a few news ones. This one sure wakes my skin up!

3. Skin ACURE Purifying Fruit Peel ($22.99/1.4oz @ – this one uses acids found naturally inside mangos, bitter cherry and raspberry, among others to exfoliate. A thin layer on the face and neck for 5 to 8 minutes 1 or 2 times a week is all it takes.

4. Hair CUVÉE BEAUTY Champagne Spray ($45/5oz @ – I find that when I spray this one and this one both on towel dried hair, I get the perfect blowout that lasts for a few days. A perfect tousled/piecey look!

5. LipsHIGHLIGHT Liquid Lipstick in Sahara Rendezvous ($25 @ – lipstick is good but metallic lipstick is better this season! And this coppery/bronze shade will go with any tan. And this one dries down all the way but not dry like a desert.

6. CheeksBENEFIT GALifonia Powder Blush ($29 @, – a pinky blush with a touch of sunkissed gold and smells like grapefruit and vanilla. Yum!

7. ComplexionCOLORESCIENCE Tint Du Soleil Whipped Foundation ($54/1oz @, – this is one of those all-in-one foundations that includes SPF30, nourishing vitamins for the skin, and it wear beautifully. Available in 4 shades.

8. Clean - LE COUVENT DES MINIMES 3-in-1 Micellar Water ($19/13.5oz @ – time to lighten things up now that the temps are going up! So gently remove makeup and clean the skin with this one.

Honey, Honey

I have been a long time fan of HONEY. It never spoils, it’s sweeter than sugar, and it’s packed with vitamins and antioxidants. According the wikipedia, it’s the only food that includes all the substances necessary to sustain life, including water. Amazing! I really think this ingredient is highly overlooked when it comes to using it in beauty products as it proven to be able to attract and absorb moisture. So here’s out first of a four-part series on HONEY and beauty products that get it:


  1. KINGS & QUEENS Nefertiti Honey ShowerGel ($10.82/10.14oz @
  2. LE COUVENT DES MINIMES Honey Nutritive Lip Balm ($10/.5oz @
  3. LUSH Honey I Washed The Kids Soap ($7.95/3.5zo @
  4. VERIKIRA NATURALS Honey Bath Body Polish ($38/16.64oz @

Winnie The Pooh Approved

Honey has to be one of my favorite scents on the planet and any product highlighting it takes front and center. Need a great quality scrub? LE COUVENT DES MINIMES Honey Skin Softening Sugar Scrub ($28 @ is one that doesn’t disappoint.Lecouventdesminimes_2 This 14.1oz glass jar contains a fine granulated sugar as a base and adds almond, apricot and grape seed oils to not only slough off that dead layer of skin, but also tantalize the nose in the process. And it even comes with it’s own wooden spoon to scoop the product out. Big recommendation.
