New! Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil


As a girl fighting life long combo skin the thought of oil to clean my skin still scares me a bit. I know all the benefits but to my brain shiny, oily is bad. So how can cleansing oil repair my issues? I’m still fighting the head cold of the ages when I am not making a mountain of kleenex I am coughing in fits. It ain’t pretty and my skin feels raw, puffy and just downright icky.

A few nights ago I pulled out my Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Cleansing Oil desperate for something to help my poor skin. The first few pumps I liked how light it was almost like water with a touch of silky oil.  You can see in the picture below how thin and light this cleansing oil is.


It smells amazing and as I started to rub it into my skin right away I was falling in love. A super lightweight cleansing oil, it removes makeup and the grime and rinses away leaving my skin soft, supple and feeling amazing. I was impressed how quickly my skin started to feel and look better. Kind of day dreaming about laying in a tub of this. Wonder if Santa can add that to my list?

It’s that time of year again!


The dreaded cold season is upon us. After watching it work its way through my kids and friends I foolishly thought I had outrun the bug. But after a crazy week of kid’s birthday’s, soccer parties and work my cold came in like a wrecking ball on Saturday night. It always amazes me how I can go from feeling great to a congested, coughing mess in hours.

When I have a cold I try to sleep as much as usual, drink as many fluids as possible and take every vitamin and supplement know to man. Something has to work right? Well one of my favorite cold soothers are Lush Bath bombs, nothing like a warm bath with a fizzy amazing smelling bath bomb to soothe my achy body. This weekend as I was cleaning I happened upon a Santa Lush bath bomb from last year that had someone slipped behind all my products and hidden from me. While I know Lush products are very fresh and usually best when used right away I decided to plop it in the bath and try it out. To my elation it fizzed and spun and made the bathroom smell so great I could even smell through my congested head. And the best part is how soft, smooth my skin feels.

So do yourself a favor and stock up for when the cold comes a knocking or just a quite spa night in the bath with your favorite book and a glass of wine. Here are a few of my favorites.



Butterball Bath Bomb
Beautiful butter cream hydration for dry skin
Our vanilla-scented Bath Bomb is anything but boring when you lay back into a cozy white blanket of creamy, buttery froth. This little fizzer is the ultimate in comfort with chunks of creamy cocoa butter; it’s fantastic for rehydrating dry skin. Baths can dry your skin if they’re too hot, so if you’re in need of a long, lingering bath pop one of these gorgeous beauties into the tub for a vanilla custard soak to lull you into a deep relaxed state – and leave with sweeter, softer skin.


Sex Bomb Bath Bomb
Brazen jasmine flirts with your senses
What’s in a name? When it comes to the Sex Bomb we take the moniker seriously. A must for any romantic bath, our world famous sphere of sex appeal contains all of Nature’s most potent and seductive ingredients to get you in the mood for a good… bath. Scintillating jasmine, clary sage and ylang ylang are powerful aphrodisiacs that are known to relax you as they warm your heart, and other body parts too. Soya milk makes the water milky, softening your entire body as you enjoy a luxurious soak with our best-selling Bath Bomb. Consider yourself warned.


Fizzbanger Bath Bomb
Alluring apple and spice Bath Bomb
Transform your ordinary bath into something new and exciting. Whizz! Bang! Pop! Fizz! Our Fizzbanger Bath Bomb goes off in the bath water as if it were loaded with miniature fireworks. Experience an alluring symphony of crackling candy, and a potion of spectacular slow fizzing spectrum of swirling color. The scent changes right before your nose, pulling you in with a delectable blend of crisp apples and cinnamon that settles into a spicy cinnamon toffee. Smell familiar? That’s Love perfume, from our Gorilla Exclusives.

You can purchase LUSH bath bombs online at or at your local LUSH shop.

NEW! Monat The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo


I love a good dry shampoo as much as the next girl. But to tell the truth I’m a clean freak and when I use dry shampoo it generally works well enough but I am thinking about how long until I really wash it. That is until I tried Monat’s The Champ Conditioning dry shampoo. I had heat styled my hair the day before and wanted to give it a break before washing. I figured The Champ could at least get me through the day and I could clean my hair before bed.

When I first sprayed it I loved the smell, so clean and fresh and my hair smelled amazing. I worked it through my roots and noticed my hair didn’t feel oily anymore but it also didn’t have that powdery coating some dry shampoos leave. My hair looked and felt clean, and it smelled cleaner than after I first showered. The best part is the clean look and feel lasted all day and I didn’t feel the need to rush to the shower that night. I woke up the next day and my hair still felt great. I am hooked on this dry shampoo and its the first thing to help this over washer give her poor hair a break.

 MONAT The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo
Formulated with powerful, naturally plant-based ingredients, The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo has a non-flammable technology that makes it easy for users on-the-go to spray the product directly on their hair and scalp, where oiliness or greasiness may be a problem. Today, MONAT announced a new addition to its hair care collections: The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo, which delivers the same efficient cleansing results of their previous shampoos, only this one is meant to be applied on dry hair without the need of rinsing it out.

“This is a high-performing product that’s safe to use on all hair types and is actually good for your hair and scalp because, as with the rest of MONAT’s products, it contains REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive, which helps support a naturally healthy scalp and hair, while providing the added benefit of lightly conditioning the hair and helping absorb excess oil”, says Ross.
