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 www.neutrogena.com

New from COVERGIRL – Natureluxe!

Taylor Swift will represent a new generation of luxury makeup, COVERGIRL NatureLuxe, launching in January 2011. The new line includes a Silk Foundation and a Gloss Balm, both delivering a perfectly polished look and a lightweight feel.  Swift’s COVERGIRL ads for NatureLuxe will appear beginning in January (but you can get a sneak peek here!). NatureLuxe Silk Foundation and Gloss Balm will be sold at drugstores nationwide.

Natureluxe Silk Foundation: Redefine natural beauty with their lightweight silk foundation. With a touch of cucumber water and a hint of jojoba and rose hip extracts, their light yet luxurious formula takes heavy weight out of your polished finish.

I tried this foundation, and I have to say, I was really impressed! It’s very light – and smooth, and when it has absorbed into your skin, it leaves it looking radiant! For a drugstore foundation, this was a wonderful surprise! Most foundation is so overpriced, it’s ridiculous! I love this new line!

Natureluxe Gloss Balm: Get the sheer color and shine of a gloss with the soft, lightweight feel of SPF 15 balm. Fortified with mango and shea butter, this feel-good formula leaves your lips feeling decadent and delicious.

I loooooooooooooooooooove these glosses! I might go out and buy 10 more. This awesome balm comes in 16 shades! It’s definitely worth trying, you won’t be sorry!

Can’t wait to see what else Natureluxe comes out with!

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)
