New Moisturizers from Neutrogena Wrap Your Skin in Moisture

I was sent some samples from the Neutrogena Moisture wrap collection just in time for the cold weather.  We have had a beautiful fall in Oregon but our weather went from the mid 70′s to low 50′s in the matter of a week. My whole family has sensitive skin and my kids just started complaining that their skin felt itchy. 

I popped open my new lotions and lathered us all up and in minutes we all felt great. In one day my kids skin was restored and we had no more case of the itchies. And my hands which were getting dry really fast with the cold now feel great. One of my favorite of the 3 lotions is the Intesnsive Moisture Wrap. The pump dispenser is super easy to use and it feels so great on even after I wash my hands they still feel soft and moisturized. 

Just a little lotion goes a long way I have been applying after baths and showers and we are all loving how soft and moisturized our skin feels! A super reasonable price point families can afford a superb product to protect them all winter long.

kandqshowergel.jpg

I’ve tried a few Kings & Queens products in the past, and I was really impressed with each one! Recently I was sent 2 of their new Showergel’s – and I’m in love! They come in these big 10 oz. bottles, and each have a great design on the label.  What I love most about these showergels is the scent. It stays with you long after you get out of the shower.  I tried Chinese Princess Jasmine  – and Sultan of Granada Lemon Flower, and they are amazing! I couldn’t tell you which one I like more.  They are awesome!

Get ready like a royal, start the day like a sovereign, make like a monarch. Kings & Queens is a royal new body care range developed around the herbs and spices favored by the aristocracy of a bygone age.

Kings & Queens introduces Body Milks, Showergels, Body Butters, and Shimmering Body Milks, each with a story to tell. From Nefertiti Honey, inspired by the Egyptian Queen who used the Nectar as an indulgent beauty treatment, to Cinnamon, the spice beloved by Queen Isabella of Spain that prompted Columbus’s trip to discover the new world, the creators of Kings & Queens took inspiration from the beloved ingredients of yesteryear.

The line reflects the true decadence of royals past with an imaginative, modern twist. This fun, irreverent range of beauty products is for fashion, style and design conscious urbanites who are always on the lookout for an affordable statement choice.

The purple fruit of Pomegranate, with benefits of Polyphenolic compounds and Vitamin C, has a crown-like top, which is why it is displayed on the coat of arms of many Royal Houses. The flower of the Blue Lotus was the most popular ancient Egyptian symbol of glory and eternal life for gods and mortals alike containing bioflavonoids, such as quercetin and rutin and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Malachite was used by Russian Tsars to decorate their palaces to lend extra energy and bring harmony by detoxification the body and healing skin tissue.

Make Her Up introduces Lavanila’s Body Butters!

vl-body-butter-hi-res1.jpg

This time of year my skin gets very sad and dry.  The weather sucks all the moisture out of my skin, and it’s left thirsty and needing lotion every day.  When I was recently sent Lavanila’s new Body Butter to try for the site, I was absolutely thrilled. I’ve always been a fan of Lavanila’s scents, and to have it in a Body Butter is a major bonus!

I tried the Vanilla Lavender, and it’s such a wonderful body butter (and I’ve tried a lot). It goes on smooth, and dries completely – not leaving your skin greasy.  It softens my skin – and makes it feel healthy and nourished all day.  The scent is strong, but not overpowering in the least. It’s a beautiful, soft smell – that works all day long!

THINK: The healthiest butters on earth.

WHAT THEY ARE:
Skin food. They’ve already made your fragrance ritual a healthy one. Now Lavanila is turning its attention to your moisturizing routine by introducing a new line of 100% natural Body Butters, deeply nourishing, non-greasy formulas packed with some of the most skin beneficial, anti-oxidant rich vitamins and minerals on earth and lightly scented with the natural Lavanila fragrances you can’t get enough of.

Blending skin-soothing botanicals and powerful anti-oxidants with the purity of Lavanila’s signature fragrances, this non-greasy, instantly absorbed formula melts into skin for luxurious hydration and softly scented nourishment.

The Body Butters are available in each of the five Lavanila scents, all of which are formulated with 100% natural ingredients such as skin-soothing pure essential oils, fresh fruit extracts and botanicals. The scents include:

Pure Vanilla – The perfect vanilla. More vanilla bean than vanilla cookie, this superbly clean scent is a must have for any vanilla addict. Contains notes of: Madagascar vanilla, freesia, heliotrope and vanilla orchid.
Vanilla Grapefruit – An uplifting citrus. Sweetly seductive and kissed by sunshine, this unusually crisp fragrance is destined to become a cult classic. Contains notes of: grapefruit, lime, bergamot, orange, cedarwood, heliotrope and Madagascar vanilla.
Vanilla Blossom – A wild floral bouquet. Dangerously seductive, this flirtatious floral is unexpectedly clean and sophisticated. Contains notes of: crushed orange blossom, rose, jasmine, karo karounde petals, nutmeg, osmanthus, lemon and Madagascar vanilla.
