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.

Click HERE to check out AERIN. AERIN Beauty is also available at fine retailers: Nordstrom.com, NeimanMarcus.com, Selfridges.com and BergdorfGoodman.com.

New Neutrals: Marsh and Natural Wilderness by MAC

Press SampleHere in the desert, we use a lot of neutral!  My home is in a community where only natural desert colors are allowed, and you would assume this means a sea of tan houses.  But each shade is completely unique, some with red undertones, some more yellow, and some even leaning a gray/green.  These two new neutral shadows from MAC are a perfect example of how interesting neutral colors can be!
