Mama Mio Lucky Legs

I am a huge Mama Mio fan and was just sent a sample of their latest product  Lucky Legs and I am in love all over again. Lucky Legs is a really light serum, just two pumps and I can cover my legs from my knees down. As soon as I smooth it on I can feel the tingle of the spearmint and menthol and my legs make an almost audible sigh of  happines. This is perfect at the end of a long day as a reward for my weary legs.

Mama Mio Lucky Legs

rapid relief for heavy legs and feet

A mini spa treatment that glides on to instantly cool and ease weary limbs from knees to tip toes. Leaves a super-subtle sparkly-shimmer on your shins and a spring in your step.

We demand a lot from our legs and feet. They carry us around all day, walking, running, skipping, jumping; even dancing ‘til dawn in highly impractical but gorgeous shoes. And what thanks do those foot soldiers really get? Well, times are a’changing and your legs are about to get very lucky.

Who needs it? Any woman who complains about her tired achy legs and feet (who doesn’t?). Safe to use when pregnant or carring any other kind of heavy load for an extended period (ie the mortgage, holiday sales shopping, your best mate’s secret).

All of us can benefit from this amazing pick-me-up to feel instantly refreshed and walking on air.

Celebrate Earth Day With The “Best Eco-Friendly Beauty Products”

You can feel great about adding these environmentally friendly products to your beauty regimen! These are our picks for the best beauty products that are good to your body and the planet.

Best Sulfate-Free Shampoo
Desert Essence Organics Green Apple & Ginger Thickening & Volumizing Shampoo, $8.99, Whole Foods Market.

Testers fell for the fresh apple scent. Their fuller, shinier hair was the clincher.

Best Mineral Makeup
L’Oreal Bare Naturale Soft-Focus Mineral Finish, $15.25, drugstores.

The translucent powder absorbs oil and minimizes lines and wrinkles, giving you a flawless finish in seconds. It’s preservative-free for sensitive types, and testers liked the built-in brush applicator.

Best Paraben-Free Body Lotion
Burt’s Bees Radiance Body Lotion with Royal Jelly, $8.99, drugstores.

This shimmery moisturizer generated happy buzz. Royal jelly contains essential amino acids and B vitamins, and the lotion has no chemical preservatives.

Best All-Natural Body Wash
Clark’s Botanicals Skin Clearing Face & Body Wash, $46, clarksbotanicals.com.

A blend of salicylic acid and willow-bark extract, this formula gently washes away post-workout sweat and oil and promotes cell turnover, leaving skin healthy and blemish-free. One staffer saw a difference in her skin after only one shower.

Best Organic Lip Smoother
Yes To Carrots C Me Smile Lip Butter, $3.69, Walgreens.

It has so many healthy ingredients (organic carrot extract, coconut oil, jojoba-seed oil, shea butter) there simply isn’t room in the tube for anything bad for your lips — or the planet. Oh, and it kept our pouts soft too.

Illamasqua Spring/Summer 2010: Body Electrics

Illamasqua Spring/Summer 2010: Body Electrics

Illamasqua, the UK-based make-up line for your alter ego, introduces its first collection of make-up for the whole body: Body Electrics. Inspired by the power of kinetic energy, the art of movement and the fluidity of the body in motion, this stunning collection is an anthology of creams, powders and dry body oils infused with light, shimmer and shine, designed to highlight and contour the whole body.

The first Illamasqua collection debuting in the U.S. to include exclusive, limited-edition products, Body Electrics has been formulated with hyper-pigmented light-reflecting particles that ignite the skin with intense colors and finishes. Each product in the range has been selected to accentuate the body’s every twist and turn to exquisite perfection, exuding a confidence that’s more than skin deep.

An expressive, avant-garde visual campaign featuring stunning make-up created by Alex Box and fashion styling by Dazed magazine’s Katie Shillingford support the campaign. Shot by leading fashion photographers Warren du Preez and Nick Thronton Jones, the images take on the duo’s “hypervisuality” style based on the manipulation of light. With Body Electrics, Illamasqua harnesses the power of movement and takes body make-up to a whole new level.
