Santorini? Yes please.  It’s definitely on my must see travel bucket list. I am a huge fan of Korres and can’t wait to check out their new collection!

April 1st, KORRES Natural Products will introduce its NEW “White Grape from the Vineyards of Santorini” collection, featuring a moisturizing showergel and smoothing body cream, transporting you and your sense to the Greek island of Santorini. Santorini is the most popular destination in the Mediterranean with its sparkling Aegean blue sea and Cycladic white houses.

The new collection is infused with white grapes indigenous to Santorini. The grapes are cultivated in the arid volcanic ash rich soil of the island. This ancient vine variety goes back 400 years and remains phylloxera-free. It grows on its own roots with sea mist water, which drifts across the island at night.

Mio Future Proof

The last month or so I have been bouncing back and forth between oils and lotions trying to hydrate my skin. While most of them felt good when I applied within minutes my skin had a slight parched feeling again. I jumped at the opportunity to try Mio Future Proof and see how it worked. From this first application I could tell this wasn’t an ordinary body butter.

When I first opened the tub I noticed how amazing Future Proof smells amazing, the essential oils give it the most fantastic refreshing scent. I applied to my skin right out of the shower, and instantly I could feel how different it was. Its thick, buttery and incredibly rich but immediately melted into my skin. My skin felt hydrated in a way I hadn’t experienced before and it was silky smooth to the touch.

After a full weeks use I can say my skin definitely has a healthy glow to it. No more dry patches and it has even started firming my skin up a bit. It’s definitely a product you need to try to believe. I love that is not only has hydrated my skin like no other product has been able to but its packed with antioxidants to improve the look and feel of my skin.  My skin has never  felt so soft, and had such a deep sense of hydration. This is definitely a must have going forward.

The actress shared the love by giving Oscar host Ellen Degeneres her lip balm while Ellen was collecting money for the infamous Oscar pizzas last night, and Ellen instantly became a fan herself! This hilarious exchange became an instant social media hit, trending on twitter as #lupitaslipbalm, and has sold out almost across the country overnight!

Lupita caused quite the rush to grab tubes of Clarins HydraQuench after she shared hers with Ellen at the Oscars. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a tube and I have to say I love it.

HydraQuench feels like a hybrid of all the other balms I have used. Its super hydrating like the heavier balms but its so lightweight on my lips. It feels so refreshing on my lips, I love how soft and smooth it makes my lips.

Great for cool, harsh winters and this will be a must-have in the warm summer months to keep my lips looking and feeling good.

Reparative balm works deep within the skin’s surface to help heal dry, chapped, weather-roughened lips. Soothes the senses with aromatic plant essences. Hydration so pure and refreshing, parched lips drink in its benefits. All climates.
