L’Occitane’s NEW Angelica Line!

During the Middle Ages in France, Angelica was used for its excellent medical properties and as a herb. It was recommended for the overworked or convalescing. Angelica essential oil has hydrating and toning properties, which also helps to restore and preserve beauty.

Some Provençal locals still embrace Angelica’s healing properties today, by brewing its root as a tea or chewing on it.

L’Occitane has launched a new line of Angelica’s products, and I’m happy to admit I’ve tried one of them. I’ve been using the Hydration Mask for a couple weeks now, and I’m LOVING the results. I know my skin feels different immediately after rinsing the mask off. It only takes 3 minutes – and who doesn’t have three minutes!

The Angelica Instant Hydration Mask is an ultra fresh and rinse-free gel that rehydrates the thirstiest skin in just three minutes.

Quench your skin with this unique complex of organic angelica essential oil and angelica water, for a natural hydration boost.For fresh, plump and radiant skin.

The NEW Angelica products range will include:
· Instant Hydration Mask ($35): Enriched with hyaluronic acid, pure water and angelica water, this perfect hydrating solution reveals smooth, radiant skin in just three minutes.
· Exfoliating Gel ($30): Tiny microbeads work to gently exfoliate and rejuvenate skin for a naturally youthful, wide-awake glow.
· Hydration Face Mist ($22): Energize skin with a fine mist of thirst-quenching droplets that replenish skin’s moisture level in seconds.

New Contest! Get The Look: Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott with a Mary Kay Prize Pack!

The 2012 CMT Awards always brings the glitz, glam and fun to the city of Nashville. Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott upped-the-ante on how to perfect a country-star look with a black body-hugging dress and glam makeup to match. Hillary’s attention-grabbing eyes focused on bold lashes with smokey lids. Her flawless complexion served as the ultimate canvas for an overall red carpet head-turner. Now, you can achieve the same makeup look with help from Mary Kay!

To Get Hillary’s flawless finish prep with the Mary Kay Foundation Primer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and then apply your shade match of the Mary Kay Matte-Wear Liquid Foundation with the Mary Kay Liquid Foundation Brush. Brush on a pink hue cheek with the Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Strawberry Cream for radiance on the cheekbones.

To get her dramatic smokey eye makeup along with vivacious lashes, start with the Mary Kay Eye Primer directly onto the lid. Then apply a charcoal hue like the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Coal to start the smoke. Follow by adding a lighter copper shimmer for some pop near the brow line with the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Copper Glow and finish with a couple swoops of the Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara in Black to complete the country crooners’ look.

Mary Kay was kind enough to send me a set to review and let me tell you it is amazing. I love the foundation and primer both provide amazing coverage but are still light on my skin. I was new to using a foundation brush but really loved it, I found it helped me build a little extra coverage where needed much easier.

I love the new Mineral colors from Mary Kay Strawberry Cream adds the perfect pink flush. The beautiful Copper Glow adds the perfect sparkle to a smoky eye and really compliments the Coal shade. Make sure you start off with the Mary Kay Eye Primer and your shadow will look great all day. Finally what is better than waterproof mascara in summer, well besides sun? Mary Kay Lash Love Waterproof Mascara is amazing, long full lashes that last and last. I road tested the mascara at a local waterpark and even after a day of water slides and swimming my lashes looked great.

So excited about this amazing prize pack, check out the look I created with the products and be sure to enter below!

A bronzing oil, it instantly gives my skin a gorgeous golden glow with a hint of shimmer. On top of making my skin look like I just came home from the tropics Too Faced Royal Oil has a great Coconut scent not too strong just a hint. Love how great it feels on my skin, keep it moisturized and looking great.

Bachlorette Beauty Secrets!


The Bachlorette is heading to Crotia with her guys to make her final decision. Wonder how she has managed to look so amazing this season? We have the inside scoop on some of  Emily’s favorite beauty products!

She gets her smooth, silky locks with the Solano SuperSolano Dryer ($129.95 SRP, Ulta.com). Denise Antonacci, her hairstylist and colorist at the Jon Ric Hair Spa in Charlotte, North Carolina, exclusively uses the Solano Dryer, a favorite of Emily’s, to help smooth down her hair. Tourmaline technology promotes healthier hair by adding shine, smoothing the hair follicle, and reducing fly-aways.

Emily won’t go a day or night without washing her face, or else she faces some serious breakouts. “Every morning I wash with OMP Nu-Derm Gentle Cleanser ($37.50 SRP, Obagi.com).” Next she religiously applies OMP CRx C-Exfoliating Day Lotion ($61 SRP, Obagi.com), which keeps her complexion glowing and spot free by neutralizing free radicals with antioxidants.
