Check out two great new products that you will want in your Summer skincare arsenal.


I’m a little obsessed with the new Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist.  Usually I’m partial to mists they are nice but  don’t really really do much for me. But this mist, ahh this mist is like a little wake up mist. I keep my bottle on my desk so when I hit that “I can’t even” part of my afternoon at work I spray a bit of mist on my face and the smell perks my right up and it leaves my skin feeling amazing and me a bit less of a a basic girl. Who wouldn’t love that?

Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist $27
A cooling, refreshing formula that purifies and hydrates your skin, breathing new life into your complexion with every spritz.

An instant boost on-the-go!

Formulated with Cactus Flower to keep skin hydrated even under dry conditions, and Tibetan Ginseng to increase skin-cell respiration, this formula helps skin maintain its essential moisture to keep it soft and smooth.

A potent blend of Lavender, Geranium and Rosemary essential oils detoxify and protect skin from environmental aggressors.


Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, they promise hydration and a cream that won’t migrate into my eyes.  I was skeptical as everything seems to irritate my eyes, but I gave it the old college try. First thing I noticed when I popped open the lotion was the yellow color and a really thick rich cream. I only needed a tiny dab on my ring finger, a little goes a long way. As I applied it I think I heard my eyes audibly sigh in relief. They instantly felt hydrated, and the amazing feeling seemed to last all day. The best part it really doesn’t migrate, the lotion stays right where I put it with absolutely no irritation. And I am noticing a big reduction in the puffiness under my eyes.

If you have any issues with dryness, puffiness or just want to protect your skin from the signs of aging give this wonder cream a try. It works under makeup just as well as it does alone. I actually look forward to applying this each morning, it feels just as amazing every time I apply it.

Last week I spent a bit too much time in the sun, basking in the crazy warm Spring weather we are having right now. And when I got home I noticed my face was sunburned along the hairline. I washed my face then dropped two drops of The Glow oil into my hand and lightly applied to my skin and pressed in.

First thing I noticed was the gorgeous floral scent, very fresh and warm. As I patted the oil in, my face instantly absorbed it and felt amazing. And there was no oily or greasy residue. When I woke up the next morning my skin felt great and all I noticed the mark around my hairline that looked like the start of a bad burn was gone! Over the last week I have been using this in the morning and night and my skin is loving it. My combo skin now is properly hydrated and looks and feels more radiant and I’m not struggling with the mid day shine from skin overcompensating from dryness. Love this, can’t wait to try more from the line.

All natural preservative free oils, directly from the fountain of youth. The GLOW balances the skin’s ideal pH level for healthy, glowing skin. This powerful elixir of oils penetrates upon application to tone and energize. Skin looks and feels immediately refreshed, hydrated, refined and naturally “glowing.” Geranium essential oil stimulates circulation, helps to brighten skin and encourages regeneration of skin cells. Organic Jojoba oil mimics skins natural sebum production to help tighten pores, leaves your skin soft and silky. Combat skin dehydration with daily application.

Update: Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel


Well, for a girl that can’t seem to keep polish on for more than 3 days without it looking like I dragging my nails as I drove I am in love with Revlon’s Colorstay Gel Envy. I painted my nails last Thursday and I would say they made it to 6 days without any chips or wear. And 8 days  I need to change my polish as its starting to chip. But for an at home gel mani this is so affordable, easy to do and lasts longer than the gel manicures I’ve got in a salon. If you haven’t tried it yet go out and grab some your nails will look great all summer!

When gel polish first hit the nail salons I was so excited. A manicure that lasted a week or more sounded amazing, well after trying several salons and types of gel polish I was always left a bit underwhelmed. The gel polish was significantly more money but the results were maybe 4 days of chip free wear versus the standard 2 to 3. I had all but given up until Jocelyn started raving about the new Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel. The price was right and she said her at home mani would last a week or more! I was sold.

Yesterday I hit Target and grabbed a Colorstay Gel Envy Polish and Top Coat. Last night I buffed my nails, wiped them down with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils and layered two coats of the color polish on. The formula is a bit lighter and more watery than usual nail polish. But I like it, I found I was able to more precisely apply it and not make a mess of my nail beds like I do with standard polish. After letting the color dry for a bit I added the Diamond Top Coat and proceeded to fall fast asleep.

I was sure I would wake up with a mess of nails printed from the sheets and blankets and all smudged. But when I checked my nail enamel was perfect. No chipping, smudging of any kind. And better yet they looked fantastic. Polish usually lasts me one day before I chip the heck out of. I have been on my computer most of the day, washing dishes and doing laundry and they are still going strong. This formula definitely seems to hold tight and be stronger than most. Can’t wait to see how many days this polish lasts, I will update you and be trying more colors!
