‘Girls’ actress Allison Williams teams up with Simple Skincare!

How many of you ladies out there watch ‘Girls’? I have to admit I am obsessed with the show. I know it’s a bit out of my age range – the show definitely is for a different generation (girls born in the 90′s, not the 70′s, like me). But that doesn’t mean I enjoy it any less. One thing I will say with 100% certainty, is that I am SO HAPPY that I am NOT a single girl in NYC these days. It looks like hell, to me. Give me my sweats, suburbia, and a gorgeous husband that I love – any day!

Anyway, one of the girls of ‘Girls’ has just signed on with Simple Skincare. The gorgeous Allison Williams helps launch a new skincare line! “As a longtime fan of Simple skincare, I was so excited when they approached me about becoming their brand ambassador,” said Williams. “I love that their products keep my skin healthy-looking, without irritating it, because Simple is made for sensitive skin, like mine.”

I’m excited to share that one of Hollywood’s hottest new IT Girls, actress Allison Williams, is launching her first big beauty deal with Simple today!  Simple is a range of facial skincare products that are perfect even for sensitive skin, and Williams reveals her holistic approach to skincare – plus the new 2013 Simple products that she relies on.

None of the Simple products contain dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh irritants that can upset skin. All Simple products are designed to gently and effectively address sensitive skin needs and are pH balanced, dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic.

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme is heavenly!

Who doesn’t love Burt’s Bees??? Man, I love so many (if not all) of their products. A couple of weeks ago I got my hands on the Tips & Toes Kit below, and I totally fell in love with it. It has EVERYTHING you need to keep your lips, fingers and toes totally healthy this winter! One of my favorite products included is the Coconut Foot Creme. It smells heavenly, and feels even better!

Go nuts for incredibly soft feet.

How it Works

This pampering natural foot cream combines coconut oil, lanolin and vegetable glycerin to revive and rejuvenate even the driest, most neglected feet. There’s also a hint of natural rosemary and peppermint oils to refresh tired feet.

How to Use It

Apply liberally and allow the cream to fully absorb. For a luxurious way to treat your feet, soak feet in warm water for 10-15 minutes and rub gently with a pumice stone. Massage Coconut Foot Creme into feet, paying close attention to heels and calloused skin. Then cover your feet with cotton socks overnight to soothe and seal in moisture.

Featured Ingredient

Coconut Oil — The flesh of the coconut is rich in emollient fat and, when pressed, yields a white, sweetly-scented, super-moisturizing oil, which is a solid at room temperature but easily melts on the skin.

This amazing product can be bought on it’s own – or part of the awesome Tips & Toes Kit. This amazing collection of rich creams and softening butters will do the trick. Seriously softening and happily hydrating. Your fingers and toes will thank you.

  • Almond Milk Hand Creme (0.25 oz)
  • Hand Salve (0.3 oz)
