Turn up the heat

The best way to describe the Cinders bath bomb is other worldly, its the most amazing warm bath bomb ever! I had and epic day of shopping last weekend and when I got home was more Grinch than Santa. After a warm bath with the Cinders Bath Bomb I was back in the holiday spirit. The warm Cinnamon scent is just so relaxing, I will be heading to Lush for more.

I love Lush massage bars right out of the shower it makes hydrating my skin a breeze. The new Once a year has a great warm cinnamon scent with a little kick of orange. Its loaded with shimmer to leave your skin with a great glow.

Once a Year massage bar ($8.95) – warm up sore muscles with this massage bar filled with cocoa and shea butters, cinnamon leaf oil and brandy.

Don’t tell but I put this under the tree for myself! I am so excited to try this scent I love warm citrusy scents this time of year and it will hit the spot after hosting the whole family for Christmas. This wrapped set is a great deal and would make a great hostess gift for Christmas and New Years Eve parties.

Avoid Dry, Itchy Skin This Winter With Neutrogena Skincare‏!

I was sent these products to try out – and they are spectacular! This time of year my skin gets very dry and cracked. I moisturize daily, and I’m always on the lookout for an affordable solution to my dry skin! I was so happy to try these – so I can share them with you. They are so great – you owe it to your skin to give it a try!

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream relieves even seriously dry, chapped hands — providing prompt healing for hands that suffer even the harshest of conditions. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream was developed to relieve even the driest, thirstiest skin, and to protect it from further abuse. This special hand cream forms an invisible shield against dry skin while it lubricates the skin, helping it to restore and retain its natural moisture balance. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream was originally developed in Norway for Arctic fishermen who needed to protect their own hands from some of the coldest, harshest weather on earth. Clinical testing proves that Norwegian Formula Hand Cream is unsurpassed at healing dry skin and providing lasting relief. If you’ve tried everything and nothing has helped your hands, try Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream. Only $3.99!  I love this cream…it’s not a lotion, it’s this awesome cream that only requires the tiniest amount. This will last me for years!

Experience Neutrogena Body Oil – a light sesame formula so sheer it vanishes into shower-damp skin, sealing in the moisture. In just a few sensual seconds, skin is left soft and silky, ready to slip into the sheerest of fabrics. This special moisturizer uses a light oil extracted from pure white sesame seeds which helps skin maintain its moisture balance, while providing a subtle fragrance that soothes the mind and body. For special skin attention, smooth on Neutrogena Body Oil after showering, bathing, sunning, or shaving. Or indulge yourself by adding a few drops in the tub for a sensual, moisturizing bath. ($9.95 for a huge bottle!) Love this! I put it on immediately following my shower, and it makes my skin as smooth as silk! Love it!

On average the skin can lose a liter of water every day which may lead to dehydration that’s uncomfortable and downright distracting, but who wants to use a thick, heavy moisturizer that leaves skin feeling greasy? Introducing NEUTROGENA® Moisture Wrap Body Lotions, a new collection of three lotions that rescue and relieve dry skin with an exclusive technology that forms an invisible layer around skin to help hold in moisture and prevent water loss, without feeling heavy or greasy. Moisture goes where it’s needed to relieve surface skin dehydration, a key source of skin dryness and discomfort.

Clinical tests show that at the end of the day NEUTROGENA® Moisture Wrap Body Lotion is 2X better than the leading therapeutic lotion at relieving visible signs of dryness. Moisture Wrap technology works differently to not only deeply moisturize but also to retain moisture all day by minimizing water loss. Uncomfortable dryness is relieved from the inside out as moisture is delivered deep into the skin’s surface. And NEUTROGENA® Moisture Wrap Body Lotions leaves a soft fragrance of heather with notes of freesia, iris, warm amber, fresh cut sandalwood and sensual musks. You’ll love to use it every day. ($8.99) I think this is my favorite of the four products. It’s such a great lotion. It absorbs quickly – but lasts all day long. It’s fantastic!

And last but not least, Neutrogena’s Lip Moisturizer! It softens, smoothes and protects dry, chapped lips with no waxy feel! Also contains a PABA-free SPF 15 sunblock for added protection from the sun. It’s great! (Only $2.99)

You can find each of the products at your local drugstore. For more information visit Neutrogena’s new website at
