Hydrating Face Cream


“Everyone knows about this face cream!” Hmph. I was getting a makeup tutorial at Bobbi Brown (SCORE!) and the superstar product in question was the Hydrating Face Cream.

Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment

Three things have been proven to power me through a sluggish day: a quad soy latte, a quick morning stroll with my pup, and 10 minutes with this extremely tingly and tightening powerhouse called GLAMGLOW. Your skin will feel wonderful for the rest of the day, and the treatment has lasting effects of clearing up blemishes and brightening dull skin. ZING!

Evian Facial Spray

Sure, you COULD just douse yourself in a liter of this elixir from the Alps. But, hey, it may be a little neater, not to mention sexier, to wake up your skin with a spritz of this mineral rich spray from Evian. A fave of party gals world-wide.

Medicine Mama’s Sweet Bee Magic

I feel the same way about Medicine Mama’s as I do about Egyptian Magic. (See my Egyptian Magic review here). Mama’s is about $10 cheaper and has a verrrry minor smell to it (not bad, just there.) It’s also organic.

Egyptian Magic

This amazing cream can be slathered anywhere and everywhere, and has only six all-natural ingredients: Honey, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Royal Jelly, Bee Pollen and Bee Propolis. No additives, preservatives, fragrances, chemicals or parabens. Don’t just goop it on. Rub it between your hands for a sec first, then shmear. Heals scars, stretch marks, and great for moisturizing practically every inch of your body.

Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief (Clinique)

I wish I could bathe in Moisture Surge from Clinique. A pledge to all of my dry-skinned sisters out there- you will not find a better product out there for this price to soothe and moisturize parched skin. Shall we all have our significant others draw the bath and dive in?? 😉

Full of Grace

I discovered this very strange, very effective, all natural solid serum while on a 6 hour flight from NYC to Vancouver. My skin was so dry it was borderline painful. I searched and searched in my (STUFFED) carry-on and finally found this anti-oxidant packed little oval from Lush called Full of Grace. Desperate, I rubbed it all over my face (including lips) and by the time the in-flight movie was over (something with Adam Sandler in a dramatic turn… yikes) my face was dewy, supple, and happy. I now use it on dry patches or in the winter under my moisturizer religiously. TIp- keep it somewhere dry and cool, and in a case, or it will melt all over everything- not cute.
