L’Occitane Zesty Lime Ultra Soft Cream

Press SampleI’ve been using L’Occitane products for a very long time, and their Shea Butter Hand Cream can usually be found somewhere in my house, perched on a sink or tucked in a handbag.

I couldn’t wait to try this eye-opening scent to help ease my skin into Spring!  L’Occitane Ultra Soft Cream is lighter than the typical body butter, and absorbs quickly (so you don’t have to wait too long to slide those skinny jeans on, after application)!  This Zesty Lime scent is exactly what I need to kick start my morning, with its citrusy zing!

Soft Candy Lip Scrub, Treat Beauty

This beauty blogger is a long-time fan of the brand Treat Beauty. This winter, when my lips were dry and cracking, I purchased Treat Beauty Soft Candy Lip Scrub to get them back to a soft and supple state. This formula is indeed a treat! This highly-emollient scrub is coarse enough to soften rough lips, and even has a super-sweet taste.

Retail price is $22. You can purchase this at TreatBeauty.com or Amazon.com.

IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss

IT Cosmetics, Vitality Butter Gloss In I Believe

IT Cosmetics, Vitality Butter Gloss In I Believe

Press Sample With Raging Rouge, I strive to deliver only the best. My favorite things are photographed, reviewed, and swatched. My not so favorite things? I wouldn’t dream of wasting your time with a post.

So generally you’ll read about familiar brands on Raging Rouge, and the reason is simply because they are superior.

Every now and then, I am surprised by a new brand that outperforms some old favorites. IT Cosmetics was exactly that surprise when I was introduced to the brand about one year ago. The makeup I have had the opportunity to sample has been heavenly, delivering a beautiful result every time. Their tools are equally divine.  I had sworn off mineral foundation a while ago, but their Celebration Foundation brought me back to the fold, with its amazing coverage and finish.

But I digress. Today I’m actually introducing you to their Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss in the shade “I Believe”. This gloss even FEELS good on the lips, and using the word “butter” in the name is brilliant simply because it’s true. This gloss is buttery and decadent.  The color? I’ll let my swatch of “I Believe” below, speak for itself.
