New! Dove Dry Oil Body Wash and Beauty Bar.


Dove is my must have body wash, nothing beats the cleaning and hydration of Dove body wash… except Dove. Now my favorite way to get clean is even better with the new Dove Dry Oil Body Wash with Moroccan Argan Oil. The Dove creamy body wash is even now more hydrating with the inclusion of Moraccan Argan oil.

As you can see from the pic below the formula is creamy and rich and works up into a beautiful lather. I love how great this new line smells, so warm and comforting and it leaves my skin so silky smooth and hydrated. Since I started using it a week ago I have found I don’t need to use lotion as often my skin is so hydrated.

Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash, with a unique combination of Moroccan Argan Oil, Dove’s mildest cleansers and NutriumMoisture technology, nourishes by replenishing nutrients lost during cleansing to leave your skin feeling softer and smoother.


If you are more of a beauty bar than body wash type, the Dry Oil Beauty Bar with Argan Oil is the same great formula as the wash but in a bar. Great for travel, or your gym bag it will get your skin clean and leave it feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. This will be a staple in my camping stuff this year, will be great to get clean and hydrated while out playing in the heat and sun.

Jane Cosmetics Water-Resistant Eye Liner

jane eyeliners

Proof that great beauty products don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. The Jane Cosmetics Water Resistant Eyeliner Pencils are only $6 and rival the most high end eyeliner pencils. The formula is rich, creamy and glides on so easy from your first use to the very end of the pencil. I love how creamy the formula is, it makes a straight line even with my shaky hands and is very blendable. And once the pencil sets it doesn’t budge even with water, sweating, and long days the color and liner stay true until you wash them off.


On top of being a great liner the color choices are amazing. My favorite shades have to be the Midnight Blue and Forest Green they work great alone or as an accent color over black eyeliner. The swatch below is a simple swipe and shows how great this formula is. Can’t wait to try more shades from this line.


There’s something you should know: your eyes are beautiful. Enhance them even further with Jane’s luxurious Water-Resistant Eye Liner, a high-performance liner at an affordable price. The creamy, color-rich formula glides seamlessly before it sets, so it blends like a breeze. Plus, it comes in an array of matte & shimmery hues that hold tight (after all, Jane believes that confidence comes in many colors!) so you can mix, match and experiment with your favorite beauty trends.

Beauty Breakdown:

  • Long-wearing, water-resistant liquid formula won’t smudge or budge
  • Luxurious, ultra soft texture makes blending a breeze
  • Made with antioxidant-rich vitamin E
  • Experiment and play with an array of matte & shimmery shades… after all, Jane believes that confidence comes in many colors!

For natural definition, apply as close to the lash line as possible, building to intensify. You can smudge lines for a softer look, or try multiple shades for an eye-catching finish. Layer with Jane’s metallic Liquid Eye Liner for extra sparkle.

Giovanni Purifying Facial Cleanser


I have been doing this fun thing where when I travel for a night I leave my face wash at home. I may have a billion kinds but I somehow don’t pack any. On a recent beach trip I realized I once again forgot my face wash and headed to the little market to grab something. I stumbled upon this Giovanni D:Tox System charcoal face wash and decided to give it a try.



With the weather switching between pouring rain and sun and the humidity my face felt icky. The face was is a dark grey which looks a bit scary but after the first wash I was sold.  I loved how smooth and clean my face felt and yet not dry. Since stumbling upon this face wash it has been my daily go to and its a really great facial cleanser. Gentle enough to not aggravate my sensitive skin but strong enough to get my pores and skin really clean. I have noticed my face is clearer with less white heads and spots popping up and the overall tone is better. The patchy under tone has cleared up and my skin looks much healthier, and smoother.

I guess sometimes its not a bad thing to leave your cleanser behind!

Removes makeup, including eye makeup, leaving skin refreshed and hydrated, pH balanced
Out with the bad: volcanic ash and activated charcoal work to extract impurities, rejuvenating skin, removing makeup and its traces without drying skin

In with the good: Includes hand-harvested super-antioxidants of acai and goji berry to help recharge and rejuvenate facial cells
