Deep Moisture for your Dry Summer Skin with Dove Body Washes.

I love Dove body washes, and odds are you will always find them in my showers. I love how great they lather and how clean and hydrated they leave my skin. And while I have a long standing love affair with Dove and would never change a thing I love that they are constantly improving their formula.

My kids and I just got back from a week of camping and after all that sun, swimming and dirt we had some dry skin. We each started washing with the new Deep Moisture Body Wash and right away that parched, dry feeling was gone. And the Dove Body Wash helped  restore all the moisture we lost out in the sun. I love how great it smells, feels and how great my skin feels and looks after. #Doveforlife!

Dove Body Washes are setting a standard in care. With almost 25% more Glycinate, an ultra-mild cleanser primarily found in premium face products, Dove Body Washes have become even milder. While mild cleansers have historically lacked the ability to produce great lather, the formula has broken the body wash paradigm, allowing women to enjoy the rich lather they love and the mildness their skin needs. Women can now feel the difference both during and after cleansing as Dove Body Washes provide softer, smoother skin after just one shower. The Dove Purely Pampering and Dove go fresh collections are also now available in the formula, so that all women can enjoy its beauty benefits no matter their fragrance preference.

Fake Bake Beyond Bronze Self-Tan Lotion

beyond bronze

I might be a little bit of a self tan addict. I have tried so many brands, I just love the look of a healthy golden glow. One of my favorite brands has always been Fake Bake they make great self tanners that don’t cost an arm and a leg. Fake Bake has just released their new Beyond Bronze collection and I had the chance to review the self-tan lotion.

The formula comes out looking a bit like chocolate syrup which makes it easy to get good coverage without leaving bare spots or getting streaks. I found the Beyond Bronze Self Tan Lotion was really easy to blend and I had enough time to work it in before it started to dry. The best part is how easy it is. Just shower to remove all body lotions or oils and it always helps to exfoliate. Then grab your gloves and apply. Once I have applied the self-tan lotion I let it air dry for a bit then hop in bed. While I get my ZZZ’s the self tanner goes to work. Then with my morning shower I can rinse off any extra color guide and when I step out my skin has a beautiful and healthy golden glow. (Check out the swatch below to see the great glow with just one use.)

My skin is very pale and I find I get a great tan every time with this product. Always a true tan color and never orange. I can’t believe this is under $10 at Target, I will be stocking up! A great way to have a beautiful tan without the damage of laying out in the sun or a tanning bed. Remember to always use SPF, seld-tanners make your skin look great but do not include sun protection.
Fake Bake Beyond Bronze Self-Tan Lotion $9.99
Beyond bronze self-tan lotion contains only the finest naturally derived, premium tanning agents dha and erythulose for a longer lasting, natural looking tan. The easy glide formula and ‘show where it goes’ cosmetic guide colour enables you to apply your self-tan with ease and confidence. If you desire a darker tan, beyond bronze self-tan lotion can be reapplied over consecutive days, however one application is usually enough.

Use small amounts and rub in a circular motion. Lightly glaze over the hands and feet, bent elbows and knees. Allow to dry before going to bed. A small amount of the colour guide may rinse off when showering in the morning but the tan will remain. Apply consecutive nights for darker results. Then apply once a week to maintain.

Katy Perry Mad Love



At first whiff I thought this new Katy Perry fragrance was way over the top and too fruity and sweet for my tastes. And at first it is, the forward notes are juicy berry and sweet. But after trying it out and letting it dry I’ve found I am really taken with this scent. It is sweet but calms down and the woody and musk notes really even out the sweet.  The longer I wear it the better it smells and I find myself sniffing my wrist again to get another whiff. Its a really great daytime summer scent and I find myself choosing it almost every day. On top of being a great scent I love the bottle, its understated and really pretty.

KATY PERRY’S MAD LOVE highlights juicy fruity notes of lady apple sorbet, mara strawberry and pink grapefruit, established as key notes of the composition. The heart is composed of bleeding heart flower, peony and jasmine. Sensuality and warmth is provided by velvety musk while precious woody notes of sandalwood and coconut contribute to depth and longevity of the composition.

Exclusively presented and available at Kohl, fragrance Mad Love attracts attention with its design and details. A love arrow is illustrated on the neck of the bottle, while a relief ehart with inscribed name of the fragrance decorates the body of the bottle. Mad Love can be obtained as a 30ml Eau de Parfum.

Katy Perry’s Mad Love is available exclusively at Kohl’s stores and at
