Get Dirty with LUSH’s Latest Launch!‏

A great new line, I just had the chance to check it out and I love the scent. The Dirty body spray is just yummy I love when my husband wears it. The body wash and shave cream have a great fresh spearmint smell and a woody undertone which combines for a super sexy smell. Love!

For people who care about their appearance but can’t be bothered with too much paraphernalia in the mornings, the NEW “Dirty” collection is a no-nonsense fragrance that hits you with intensely crisp spearmint, thyme and tarragon, and the subtle smell of calm seas.

Dirty takes the common idea of ‘layering’ with beauty products a little bit further. Normally, grooming products will all have a different scent. However, this new concept of layering means you can shower in invigorating spearmint and thyme, shave with soothing lavender and sandalwood, and style hair with tarragon and oak moss. Once all of these products with their individual fragrances have been used, the combined scent will be that of Dirty, and can be topped off with the body spray, which contains all those main notes.

Dirty Spring Wash Shower Gel ($9.95 for 3.3oz, $17.95 for 8.4oz, $26.95 for 16.9oz)
Don’t be a dirty rotten scoundrel. Recreate your very own mountain spring and wash with this tingly, softening, minty shower gel that contains spearmint, thyme, and sea salt.

Dirty Shaving Cream ($12.95)
Shave it all off using our ultra-softening oats and benzoin shaving cream. There’s also lavender and sandalwood in there to soothe any irritations.

Dirty Hair Gel ($12.95)
Refresh your coif with our conditioning and softening, firm hold styling product. Made with fair trade coconut oil, linseed gel and balm herb infusion for the perfect just-got-out-of bed style.

Dirty Body Spray ($19.95)
If you don’t have the time for a full-on Dirty routine in the morning, take a quickie instead and spritz yourself liberally with this body spray before you head out the door. No one will ever know.

Available online and in LUSH stores on May 23rd!

Tickled Pink: OPI’s Nice Stems Nail Polish Collection

OPI’s new Nice Stems! nail polish collection has us tickled pink. The cult nail brand has blended four floral-inspired lacquers that beg to be painted on fingers and toes.

Can’t you just see one of these pink shades peeking out of your favorite pair of nude sandals?

“These vibrant, feminine hues complement ’60s ladylike fashions, ’70s glam looks, and bold color-blocking, which are the season’s staples,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI executive vice president and artistic director. “The Nice Stems! collection also offers an interesting contrast and feminine accent to the punk and biker looks on the runways.”

The collection includes: Play the Peonies, a soft-pink; Come to Poppy, a shimmering coral-pink; Be a Dahlia Won’t You, a fabulous fuchsia; and I Lily Love You, a sparkling pink.

To instantly bright up your mani or pedi, Weiss-Fischmann suggests layering on I Lily Love You to achieve a shimmering 3-dimensional effect.

“I Lily Love You is a glitter coat that can be layered over any of the other three shades to add a bright sparkle; or, it can be worn on its own for a subtle tint of pink with strands of glitter,” she says.

The Nice Stems! nail polish collection ($8.50) will be available June 2011 Dillard’s, Regis and ULTA.

Wash your way to brighter, clearer skin.

I am totally hooked on Walker’s Apothecary Passion Fruit Exfoliating Cleanser! With sensitive skin I was a bit worried it might burn my skin but its amazing gentle. It has a soft Passion Fruit scent and feels like my usual face wash no burning or tingling. I like to apply it to my skin and lightly buff with a warm wet face cloth before I rinse. This is my 3rd day using it and my skin is so smooth and bright. I have noticed my skin is less blotchy and my problem areas are clearing up.  Perfect for the warm summer months!
