Lipgloss Break

NY Fashion Week

Hi All - I apologize for the spotty posts lately. I was in NY last week for the Total Beauty Summit and learned a ton about holiday trends, new product launches and more. I want to thank all the vendors we visited, including Tractenberg PR, Victoria's Secret, Chanel, Kiehl's and L'Oreal.

I can't wait to share all of the exciting new things the vendors shared with us!


Giveaway Break - Citré Shine Anti-Frizz Serum

I'm loving Citre Shine for adding shine to my hair and for taming my frizz. It reminds me of S Factor Dream Drops, but a lot less in price. You can usually find Dream Drops for around $19.95, and Citre Shine retails at $6.99 at any drug or food store.

I add a pea size amount to my hands and rub them together. I apply it to my blow dried, straightened hair, to give it shine and to protect it from frizz. It doesn't really have a smell to it, and a little goes a long way.

Skin Free Whipped Tamanu Body Butter Review

The Polynesians discovered the healing and protective properties of Tamanu oil, and I discovered the greatness of Skin Free's Whipped Tamanu Body Butter. Skin Free combines Tamanu oil with Organic Extra Virgin Olive and rich Shea to make this whipped body butter. This body butter helps to sooth, heal and renew sun-damaged skin, eczema, psoriasis and reduce scarring.

It's scent free, so you can pair it with your favorite perfume and it won't clash. I used this whole tub in less than a month. I try to stay away from perfumed lotion after being in the sun, since my skin is more sensitive. I would use the Tamanu Body Butter after being outside in the sun and I loved the way it made my skin feel...smooth and refreshed.

Tamanu Body Butter is $18.99 for an 8 oz tub. If you have sensitive skin, and are into all natural products, I think it's worth checking out. Check out the Skin Free blog and read up on their latest products and sales.
