#1 Trish McEvoy Black Rose Oud

A truly unique fragrance it wears all day and I find the scent gets better as the day goes on. Black Rose Oud is one of those scents you can’t get enough of and everyone will want to know what you are wearing. It is on the spendy side, but it’s worth every penny definitely my all time favorite luxury fragrance.

SUPER launches O-Mega Oil

I have combination to oily skin so using oil on my face sounded a bit scary but I am so pleased with the results. In less than a week my skin is feeling fantastic. Not only is my skin not dry but it’s actually less oily. I use about 4 drops every night before bed and my skin is looking the best it has in a long time. O-Mega Oil is also great for dry hands and cuticles.

OMEGA OIL - MOISTURIZES, REGENERATES, RESTORES

A modern twist on an ancient superfood, Dr. Perricone has rediscovered the power of chia and elevated this superstar seed to superstardom, giving it the spotlight it deserves.

Traditionally, the superfood pioneer has recommended consuming foods rich in omega 3’s such as wild salmon, sardines and anchovies. Extracting chia seed’s nourishing oil, Dr. Perricone builds on his philosophy “beauty from the inside out” to re-introduce chia in topical form.

Fight off dry, flakey winter skin… O-Mega Oil delivers a 100% natural, emollient synergy of chia seed oil and other beneficial vitamins to keep skin soft, supple and radiant. With more o-mega-3’s per gram than flax or fish, chia satisfies the deepest cravings and restores even the driest skin to leave you with a finish so youthful it might just make you beam.

Banish breakouts… O-Mega Oil is non-comedogenic – in fact, chia oil helps regulate sebum production to maintain that clear canvas.

Indulge in a total body experience… Ideal for not only the face, but hair, cuticles and anywhere that is suffering from chapped, cracked and dry skin.

Proving that everything old is new again, O-Mega Oil is a modern moisture remedy on a century old beauty secret.

$42.00
