The best part, it gives added heat protection and leaves you with silky soft strands.
That’s an odd product you might think, but with all that digging around in handbags, I need a formula that soothes painful hangnails and prevents cuticle tearing. In fact, I dive into my bag every few hours to give some TLC to my hardworking fingertips. This formula allows for complete cuticle nourishment. I apply it at least twice a day—first thing in the morning and at bedtime so that my cuticles always look in top shape.
Bah! Who uses eye creams I once thought, but once I tried this I was sold. The concentrated form of Amino-Peptides and Glycerin visibly firm, reduces the appearance of lines and brighten. I could see an actual difference in the fine lines around my eyes. Now if only I could rub it all over my face, I would!
Sure it’s a bit pricey, but boy are the results worth it?! The lightweight natural minerals have gold and bronze undertones that let you naturally sculpt killer cheekbones and create a fantastic contour. Just the product to keep handy when you want to look spiffy and sharp!
Is it a lipstick or is it a pencil? I adore this chubby stick because it’s so low maintenance and you can practically swipe it on with your eyes shut. I love the matte yet moisturized feel that’s not the least but sticky. Long lasting coverage, velvety matte finish, deep pigments, how much more can a girl want? They’re simply the best!
I’m obsessed with all things rose at the moment and somehow can’t get enough of this delicate White Rose and and Lotus Flower scented hand cream that contains Rose essential oil. It’s a must in my handbag. What I love is that the lotion is so lightweight, it absorbs immediately, and smells divine.
I confess I’m a bit of a hoarder when it comes to lip balms, and this fragrant, beautifully-packaged one is one of my absolute faves. The three-in-one product rehydrates, heals and protects my lips and if you were to swing by the office, you’ll invariably find it right next to my laptop. I love the fact that the formula isn’t sticky and leaves a soft, glossy sheen and not an oil slick. And it smells like rose. I rest my case!
I love the fact that I can use this mist anytime, anywhere, even over makeup or when my skin starts feels greasy. It contains retexturing ingredients, an Amino Mineral Complex and a Vitamin B Derivative that cools and calms skin, instantly hydrating it and giving you a fresh and dewy complexion. Very useful when you travel too.
This inexpensive mask does it all, cleanses clogged pores, exfoliates dead cells and gives instant brightness without drying skin out. All you need is 20 minutes to look glowy and fresh faced. Every time I use it my skin looks plumper, pores smaller and my overall complexion gleams. Simply love it!
Okay, so it costs more than the average nail polish but it’s so totally worth it. Infused with double UV filters and an exclusive Acrylic Polymer Complex, it shields those pricey manicures from fading and discoloration. With a gel like finish my nails always have that just-got-them-done gleam. If you want gel nails without getting gel nails, this one’s for you!
