NEW from L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Petal-Soft Hand Cream!

This is my kind of hand lotion. It is liquid heaven in a bottle, I’m serious.

I fancy myself as a sort of hand-lotion snob. I have found very few that I like. I hate that greasy feeling you get with most lotions. This lotion DOES NOT do that. It absorbs into your skin leaving your hands gentle and smooth. It’s amazing! Hurry up and get it – because this is a Limited Edition!

Enriched with Shea Butter and vitamin E, this lightly textured and non-greasy cream nourishes and protects hands from daily aggressions. They are soft, moisturized and delicately perfumed with Cherry Blossom’s enveloping flowery scent. Contains a cherry extract from Luberon, France.

You MUST try it!! Trust me!

Disclosure: I was sent a bottle of this lotion to review for the site!

InStyle: Does Universal Blush really work?

Universal Blush?

THE CLAIM This bright pink cheek color is the first powder blush that adjusts to your skin tone, taking the guesswork out of picking the perfect shade.

THE EXPERT SAYS “In fact, it isn’t actually self-adjusting, but the color is just translucent enough to blend in with any skin tone,” says Ni’kita Wilson. “The shade is bright, but the base that’s used is not titanium dioxide, so there’s no chalkiness.”

OUR VERDICT We tested the blush on five people (with complexions ranging from milky white to deep mocha), and amazingly, it gave a flattering, blushing-from-within glow to everyone. The color was bright enough to show up on very dark skin yet sheer enough that it didn’t look clownish on pale complexions.

I would have never thought with my pale complexion I could wear such bright colors.  Then I was sent a sample to review of the L’Occitane Pivoine Flora in Creamy Rose. The blush is the most gorgeous creamy bright rose shade and gives my cheeks the perfect color without every overpowering my skin. The pallette has a light pink shade to see as a highlighter.
