Introducing an awesome skincare line, Lily B!

Lily.B Skincare is SMART skin care designed specifically to help protect the skin and restore its natural health and balance. Loaded with natural protective antioxidants, skin nourishing and age defying ingredients, its perfect for skin that is past the acne phase but not quite ready for intensive anti-aging products.

Lily.B products work together to help improve the skin’s quality including tone, texture, clarity, and softness while protecting it from the harmful effects of environmental exposure….to sun, stress, pollution. Protecting your skin is the best defense against the early signs of aging.

Lily.B Skincare is skin friendly, meaning we do not use any skin irritating ingredients such as parabens. glycols, sulfates, fragrance or dye. Our skin care products are formulated with natural preservatives, are dermatologist tested but are never tested on animals.

I have tried three products from this line, and I love each one of them! As I’m in my 30′s I’m not really ready for all the heavy anti-aging products, but my skin is not as young as it used to be. So this line is a perfect fit for my skin!

I start off with Lily.B’s Facial Wash. Infused with the natural power of rose hip, Lily.B Skincare’s light foaming facial cleanser will gently yet thoroughly cleanse and tone your face, removing impurities including makeup, leaving your skin clean, clear, and soft. It’s awesome. ($28.50)

Next I used the Daily Moisturizer, which I was really nervous about. With my skin being sensitive to new products – I was nervous this would leave my skin oily. But I was so pleased to find that it’s really a great lotion! Formulated with nutrient-rich sea algae, providing vitamins, minerals and skin healing properties, along with nature’s own squalane and hyaluronic acid; Lily.B Skincare 24/7 DEFENSE is the best moisturizer to nourish, balance, and gently hydrate your over worked and under appreciated skin! ($49.50)

I haven’t had a chance to use the SPF lotion yet (no sun to speak of here) but I’m excited to use it come spring! Not your typical sunscreen! This hydrating, organic-based sunscreen is formulated for even the most sensitive skin. Titanium dioxide acts as a protective barrier against UVA and UVB rays while organic green tea, organic aloe vera, and organic sunflower extracts, soothe, nourish and protect the skin. ($22)

Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have Number 7!

Clarins 2010 Holiday Barocco Collection is inspired by the dramatic, daring and sensual style of the baroque period. From luxurious draperies to rich golds – this historical time was one of excess, glamour and mystery. The new collection from Clarins introduces four limited edition pieces that celebrate every woman and her unique beauty.

These new products make my list, because, well, I love them! The makeup itself is beautiful – but the cases, the cases each look like a piece of jewelry! I swear I feel like royalty when I pull them out of my purse.

I love this new collection. I love the golds, and deep black. It makes for a glamorous evening look. I know anyone else would love these pieces. One of them – or heck – all of them! They’re wonderful!!

* Barocco Face Palette: A soft, light compact powder with a scroll motif in peachy-pink and sandy-beige. The combination of the two shades is perfect for illuminating the face or adding matte touches to the complexion. ($55)

* Barocco Shimmering Gold Powder for Face and Décolleté: An elegant black and gold powder box holds little nuggets dusted with golden pearl. With a sweep of the puff, they release a fine powder to beautifully enhance the skin with sparkling reflections. (Here)

* Barocco Eye Colour Trio: A trio of shades that create the perfect smoky eye for day and night with these ultra-fine textures that can be combined, layered or blended together for perfect holiday makeup. Create a wash of bronze to enhance the eyes, black to define the eyelids and gold to catch the light and brighten the inner corners. ($40)

* Barocco Rouge Prodige: The purple velvet drapes of the Baroque period are the inspiration for the colour of this lipstick. The rich formula combines long-hold colour, extreme shine and total comfort. ($24)
