I’m CRAVING CeraVe Lotions!

I think I’m late to the game, but I just tried CeraVe lotions for the first time, and now I can see what everyone has been talking about! My sister came over the other day, grabbed a tub of it and squealed! She said her girlfriends SWEAR by the lotion, is “all they use!”

I gave it a good week – and used these exclusively – and I’m hooked. I love them! I think the #1 thing I look for in a body lotion – is DOES IT ABSORB COMPLETELY. I really hate, HATE lotions that don’t absorb and feel slimy on your skin all day. (I won’t name names.) Or lotions that are too thick to spread, you end up using way too much. These lotions really are perfect.

CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream increases the skin’s ability to attract, hold and distribute moisture. It penetrates deeply into the layers of the stratum corneum (the skin barrier) to restore the balance of lipids that are essential for an effective skin barrier. CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream also forms a protective layer over the skin’s surface to help prevent moisture loss.

Ordinary moisturizing creams need to be applied frequently because the ingredients are released in a single “burst” and absorbed in a short period of time. Like other CeraVe® Skincare products, CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream features a unique, patented MVE® delivery technology, which provides a controlled release of essential ceramides and other skin-nurturing and emollient ingredients slowly over time. It penetrates deeply into the skin to moisturize and nourish skin throughout the day while “locking in” precious moisture. The unique ingredients in CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream help restore and maintain the natural protective function of the skin barrier, help restore damaged skin and help keep skin healthy.

CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream is a rich formula that spreads easily and smoothly, absorbs rapidly and never feels greasy. It is ideal for drier areas of the body including elbows, knees and heels and can also be used on the face as it’s noncomedogenic (does not cause pimples or acne by clogging pores), non-irritating and fragrance-free.

You can buy these lotions online (Amazon, etc.) or at Walgreens (and I’m sure many more drugstores). I highly reccommend these products!!

Two NEW wonderful Burt’s Bees products!

Get hydrated this summer with Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration line. Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser and Intense Hydration Day Lotion will have your skin thanking you in no time. Inspired by the Clary Sage plants ability to retain moisture in harsh environments, these natural products will do the same, leaving your skin supple and soft.

Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser ($10) cleanses the skin and removes all makeup without stripping the skin of essential oils.

I’ve been using this for the last couple weeks, after spending time in the pool and sun, and I’ve really been loving how my skin feels! My skin just soaks up all this natural goodness, and feels so soft after!

Just like the cleanser, Burt’s Bee’s Hydration Day Lotion ($18) is dermatologist tested and non-comedogenic. This lotion will help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while keeping your skin fresh and hydrated.

After washing my skin with the cleanser above, I’ve been pairing it with this light day lotion, and it’s fantastic! So soothing and refreshing!

Buy these products anywhere Burt’s Bees is sold!

REVIEW: Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50

Introducing Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50! It’s an ultra-sheer, weightless fluid for everyday protection against broad-spectrum UVA/UVB damage.

This fast-absorbing, ultra-lightweight fluid provides daily protection against broad-spectrum UVA/UVB damage. Alguronic Acid combines with antioxidant-rich botanicals and UVA/UVB protecting actives to delay signs of aging caused by sun and environmental stressors. This oil-free, sheer formula has a silky texture and weightless feel, designed to apply smoothly on top of other skincare products and under makeup for a soft, matte finish.

I’m in love with this product. What I love most – is how thin it is. It almost feels like you’re getting away with something – because it’s so light and thin. You seriously will love it to. You can apply it to either the bottom or top of your OTHER skincare products, for extra defense! This stuff is amazing! I’ve been adding a drop or two in with my moisturizer – and I’ve been so thrilled with the results. A little bit goes a long way!

Perfect addition to your makeup products this summer!

Introducing Angelica Exfoliating Gel from L’Occitane!

Is too much time in the summer sun leaving behind a rough, dull complexion? Revitalize lackluster skin with exfoliators from L’Occitane. I’m LOVING the Angelica Exfoliating Gel. What I love most about it – is it exfoliates your skin – and when it’s over your skin feels revitalized, not dry and stinging! I find that so many scrubs leave my skin thirsty for moisturizer. I think this is the perfect balance. It exfoliates your skin, cleans out your pores, and leaves your skin feeling quite fabulous when it’s over!

These three scrubs are sure to make your features glow:

Angelica Exfoliating Gel ($30): With its pearly glow and fresh scent the all-natural exfoliating particles gently remove dead skin cells and impurities, while massaging the face. Angelica extracts preserve natural hydration, for skin that is incredibly clean, soft, and smooth.

Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Scrub ($34): Specially formulated to gently exfoliate dry skin. Its creamy base, enriched in shea butter and chestnut extract, helps the skin to maintain its natural moisture level. Skin is left perfectly clear, smooth and soft.

Immortelle Brightening Instant Exfoliator ($36): This brightening product will leave your face even-toned and luminous while protecting against impurities for an anti-aging bonus.
