Avoid Dry, Itchy Skin This Winter With Neutrogena Skincare‏!

I was sent these products to try out – and they are spectacular! This time of year my skin gets very dry and cracked. I moisturize daily, and I’m always on the lookout for an affordable solution to my dry skin! I was so happy to try these – so I can share them with you. They are so great – you owe it to your skin to give it a try!

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream relieves even seriously dry, chapped hands — providing prompt healing for hands that suffer even the harshest of conditions. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream was developed to relieve even the driest, thirstiest skin, and to protect it from further abuse. This special hand cream forms an invisible shield against dry skin while it lubricates the skin, helping it to restore and retain its natural moisture balance. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream was originally developed in Norway for Arctic fishermen who needed to protect their own hands from some of the coldest, harshest weather on earth. Clinical testing proves that Norwegian Formula Hand Cream is unsurpassed at healing dry skin and providing lasting relief. If you’ve tried everything and nothing has helped your hands, try Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream. Only $3.99!  I love this cream…it’s not a lotion, it’s this awesome cream that only requires the tiniest amount. This will last me for years!

Experience Neutrogena Body Oil – a light sesame formula so sheer it vanishes into shower-damp skin, sealing in the moisture. In just a few sensual seconds, skin is left soft and silky, ready to slip into the sheerest of fabrics. This special moisturizer uses a light oil extracted from pure white sesame seeds which helps skin maintain its moisture balance, while providing a subtle fragrance that soothes the mind and body. For special skin attention, smooth on Neutrogena Body Oil after showering, bathing, sunning, or shaving. Or indulge yourself by adding a few drops in the tub for a sensual, moisturizing bath. ($9.95 for a huge bottle!) Love this! I put it on immediately following my shower, and it makes my skin as smooth as silk! Love it!

On average the skin can lose a liter of water every day which may lead to dehydration that’s uncomfortable and downright distracting, but who wants to use a thick, heavy moisturizer that leaves skin feeling greasy? Introducing NEUTROGENA® Moisture Wrap Body Lotions, a new collection of three lotions that rescue and relieve dry skin with an exclusive technology that forms an invisible layer around skin to help hold in moisture and prevent water loss, without feeling heavy or greasy. Moisture goes where it’s needed to relieve surface skin dehydration, a key source of skin dryness and discomfort.

Clinical tests show that at the end of the day NEUTROGENA® Moisture Wrap Body Lotion is 2X better than the leading therapeutic lotion at relieving visible signs of dryness. Moisture Wrap technology works differently to not only deeply moisturize but also to retain moisture all day by minimizing water loss. Uncomfortable dryness is relieved from the inside out as moisture is delivered deep into the skin’s surface. And NEUTROGENA® Moisture Wrap Body Lotions leaves a soft fragrance of heather with notes of freesia, iris, warm amber, fresh cut sandalwood and sensual musks. You’ll love to use it every day. ($8.99) I think this is my favorite of the four products. It’s such a great lotion. It absorbs quickly – but lasts all day long. It’s fantastic!

And last but not least, Neutrogena’s Lip Moisturizer! It softens, smoothes and protects dry, chapped lips with no waxy feel! Also contains a PABA-free SPF 15 sunblock for added protection from the sun. It’s great! (Only $2.99)

You can find each of the products at your local drugstore. For more information visit Neutrogena’s new website at www.neutrogena.com

Chris Evans for Gucci Guilty

Hot! What do you think of the chest hair? Usually fragrance ads shot bare-chested men. Chris is definitely rocking a hairy chest (which I’m okay with) but many women don’t like a hairy chest! What’s your take?

That’s Evan Rachel Wood pictured drooling on him. You can see her hot ads here!

Give the gift of clear skin with LA ROCHE-POSAY

A great spot treatment, within minutes of application the look of my blemish is greatly diminished. Within two days my skin is clear again without any drying. Perfect for my combination skin dealing with the cold and dry winter weather.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar AI Intensive Acne Spot Treatment

La Roche-Posay Effaclar AI Intensive Acne Spot Treatment to visibly reduce stubborn and inflammatory acne in only three days, while minimizing irritation. This formula takes a unique approach to treat imperfections with the association of two effective ingredients for the first time: Lipo-Hydroxy Acid (LHA), a pro-exfoliating molecule designed to micro-exfoliate the skin and stimulate cell renewal and Benzoyl Peroxide to treat acne in an innovative micronized form.

INNOVATION: Synergistic Combination of Unique Ingredients
· Benzoyl Peroxide, which in its traditional form, can be irritating in high concentrations. Effaclar AI provides Benzoyl Peroxide in an innovative micronized form to release active oxygen and target acne deep in the pores. Effaclar AI contains a 5.5% concentration of Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide which is clinically proven to effectively clear inflammatory acne, while also providing deeper penetration through micronization and minimal irritation.

·Lipo-Hydroxy-Acid (LHA), an exclusive pro-exfoliating molecule to micro-exfoliate the skin and stimulate cell renewal to help even skin tone, including residual skin marking. Developed by La Roche-Posay’s advanced research team, the LHA molecule (lipo-hydroxy-acid) is a lipophilic derivative of salicylic acid that incorporates a fatty chain for improved affinity with the sebum in the epidermis allowing for faster skin regeneration. LHA offers precise, cell-by-cell exfoliation proven to exfoliate six times more the number of corneocytes than salicylic acid.
