Aerin Rose Balm

Press SampleFirst of all, before you panic, I want you to know that Aerin Beauty Rose Balm doesn’t smell like a blooming garden of roses.  It does, however, harness the moisturizing power of ingredients extracted from roses.

Aerin Rose Balm is designed for moisturizing VERY dry skin anywhere on the body, so it’s great to have on hand this time of year.  Lips, hands, elbows, knees… this product is the ultimate multi-tasker.  It’s easy to apply, but keep in mind that it’s pressed firmly like a balm into the jar, and only a very little amount is needed for each application.

Aerin Rose Balm comes housed in a substantial glass jar with a gleaming golden lid.  It’s perfect for perching on a vanity of dresser, as the look of the packaging almost works as a household accessory, it’s so gorgeous.  This product is great for sensitive skin, and delivers an overall luxe experienece.

Retail price is $58.

OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know

I was recently using up a gift card and snagged a bunch of shades from the OPI Holland collection, from waaaaay back in 2012.  What can I say, the colors from this collection still “speak” to me!  One of my favorite neutral shades to wear these days is Wooden Shoe Like To Know. It’s a medium shade of chocolate with a week bit of a rusty shimmer to add interest. This is not your basic brown ladies, and is a nice modern neutral. [Read more…]

When you purchase something as delectable as Sun Bum Lip Balm in the flavor “Key Lime”, you won’t need any reminders to apply. The scent of this balm is so divine, you’ll be reapplying almost fanatically throughout the day, just to get a fix!

Retail price is $4.  Sun Bum lip balm can be purchased at Nordstrom.com and Amazon.com.
