Here are all my reviews:
  • Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Glove Me Tender Restorative Hand Treatment with Shea Butter SPF 15

    I really, really like this hand creme, and I'm positive it's because of the Shea butter. Normally I find most SPF hand cremes to be very runny, but this is thick and creamy with a fresh citrus scent.

  • Noah's Naturals Ogranics Coconut Vanilla Body Lotion

    There's something about the scent of coconut that brings summer instantly to mind, which is why I'm currently using Noah's Naturals Organics Coconut Vanilla body wash in the shower each morning. The weather is acting funky, like it can't decide what to do. But the faint vanilla/coconut/suntan oil scent of this wash puts me in a nice summertime mood & cheers me up right away! The fact that it's made with organic ingredients that moisturize helps with my good mood too. Also worth mention is their Shea Butter hand creme, which seriously thick & includes lots of naturally moisturizing ingredients plus a light citrus scent. Best of all it's housed in a 2 ounce tube which is wonderful travel news because this is a great pre/during/post flight repair creme for your hands. I really like the fact that this brand is so easily accessible - you can pick up great natural products while in the regular drugstore buying things like cotton balls!

    Lisa Hoffman Spa Facial Packette

    Fantastic for travel

    I've posted about Lisa Hoffman's travel fragrance line before, but I don't think I mentioned how much I enjoy the single use skincare packettes, which include Spa Bath , Spa Facial and Spa Shower . I love that someone came up with such a clever idea, these are so fantastic to pack for a get-a-way, and can instantly turn any hotel stay in to a spa day.

  • Korres Lip Butter
    8.0

    Korres Lip Butter

    Pretty & natural

    First, a Confession - I have a little bit of an obsession with foreign beauty products, therefore this Greek company is just my style! I like the thought of mentally transporting yourself somewhere glamorous when using an exotic product. Right now I'm enamored with their Lip Butter in Quince, a super silky & delicate pink. It contains Shea Butter & Rice Wax... when they call it lip butter, they mean it. It feels so nice I can't stop rubbing my lips together. The pigment payoff is quite substantial for a lip balm, and amazingly, the coulorants come from actual Quince, Wild Rose & Pomegranate (respectively) rather than artificial dyes. You can even use this on your cheeks for a see-through, healthy flush.

  • Dermalogica Stress Relief Oil

    Dermalogica Stress Relief Oil

    Stressing out about stress

    I hate stress and anxiety, yet I am one of those people who constantly stress out about everything and absolutely nothing all at once. (especially this time of year!) This is a real problem, it can reek havoc on your health and most definitely on your appearance - the worst part! I try to be as healthy as possible, I eat well, take vitamins and exercise every single day yet I can't get away from my self-created stress. I even get products for it like the Dermalogica Stress Relief oil pictured here. It's nice, but I don't know how much it helps... (Btw, the product is a blend of essential oils you can use for massage, a bath, or body moisturizer - great for those purposes!)

  • Gold Bond Extra Strength Body Lotion
    8.0

    Gold Bond Extra Strength Body Lotion

    Great, except for the smell

    This Gold Bond lotion is a godsend for really dry, itchy skin in the Winter - except for one thing... the menthol. It's a plus but also a minus. I was suffering badly one Christmas a few years ago, my skin was so red & raw. I used this after my shower and caught the chills, my skin was absolutely freezing! The Dimethicone it contains is nice & moisturizing, but the smell leaves something to be desired... very medicated. However, if you're itching uncontrollably it's a smell you'd gladly put up with.

  • L'Oreal Professional Textureline Playball Beach Creme

    Red alert - Giselle hair! This is my HG hair product. Loreal Professional Textureline Playball Beach Creme gives gorgeous, tousled, wind swept hair. You can apparently use it different ways, so far I've used it on dry hair, twisting it through the ends which gives it a ropey look. But you can also use it on towel dried hair and let it air dry or use a diffuser (I'm excited to experiment with it for summer, when I don't want to even lay eyes on a blow dryer!). I did a quick search on the product and found a review somewhere of someone saying it gives great 'dirty hair', which it does. I wash mine every day and can't imagine having actual dirty hair, but this gives it that slept in look. It really gets you that Serena GG style.

  • Pevonia Botanica Rejuvenating Dry Skin Cream
    9.0

    Pevonia Botanica Rejuvenating Dry Skin Cream

    My sister Shivaughn LOVES this

    I was left in a state of bliss after using Pevonia rejuvenating dry skin cream. The smell of honey followed me everywhere, my lips needed no balm & my skin was left being silky smooth. This is a heavy cream so I don't recommend applying then jumping straight into bed, let it set in for a while & enjoy the aroma. The pretty glass jar is not only small & packable but it comes with an application stick so your not contaminating your jar with each use. Love, love love it! Fantastic for replenishing lost moisture after way too many flights.

  • Priori Day Complex

    Priori Day Complex

    Go to war with free radicals

    After beauty commandment #1 (wear sunblock diligently) and commandment #2 (use prescritpion retinoids religiously) comes a fairly new one - add another layer of protection with Anti-oxidants. Priori Day Complex is a great choice for filling this requirement. It features the powerhouse anti-oxidant Coffeeberry, a fairly new discovery - an it naturally smells ever so lightly like a vanilla latte. Adding an anti-oxidant product to your everyday routine will help fend off free radicals, help your sun protection be more effective, and serve as a powerful ally in the war against aging. As usual, we try to tell you how products would be beneficial for travel, so here goes: An anti-oxidant would be especially beneficial while flying because of all the environmental aggressors you encounter. Recycled cabin air deposits other people's germs on to you, you're flying high above the clouds and encountering stronger sun-rays, and the climate you may be traveling to may shock your skin. Adding anti-oxidant protection ensures you arrive back home with skin as beautiful as when you left.

  • June Jacobs Brightening Serum with Retinol
    8.0

    June Jacobs Brightening Serum with Retinol

    Great introduction to retinol/retinoids

    This serum utilizes retinol to encourage cell turnover, Alpha Lipoic Acid (an anti-aging ingredient highly touted by Dr. Perricone) and Soybean oil which is very moisturizing and helps keep the skin from drying out - which can sometimes happen when you first begin a retinol/retinoid regimne. A great pre cursor to prescription retinoids.
