Manuka Doctor 24K Oils


Guess what new skincare goody landed on my lap this week? Liquid gold (well, kind of, lol.) Newly launched luxe body oil collection: Manuka Doctor 24K Gold & Manuka Honey line (Kourtney Kardashian is the Global Brand Ambassador.) I know what you're thinking "but oil on your face?" Yes and contrary to popular belief, it won't clog your pores or cause breakouts, and I have long used oils to keep my skin looking radiant. Manuka Doctor 24K Gold & Manuka Honey will leave your skin smooth and supple, with a kiss of shimmer from head to toe. The four products I've been indulging in all week are: Body Oil ($39.99), Face Oil ($24.99), Hand Oil ($29.99) and Eye Oil ($24.99, 0.33 ).

My skin feels and looks radiant and is absolutely glowing. Formulated with 24K Gold, Manuka Honey, precious plant oils and a delicate natural fragrance of Chamomile and White Floral, these light beauty oils nourish and seal in moisture helping to regain suppleness and elasticity. Skin feels silky smooth and appears more moisturized and luminous. 

Manuka Doctor 24K Gold and Manuka Honey Oils are available online at www.manukadoctor.com

NEW Dove Baby Skincare Line


It's absolutely no secret, that skincare is my everything: I live and breathe it, 24/7, it's what I use to wash my face daily, even Dove body washes in my shower. So I was thrilled two weeks ago, when brand reps announced the launch of their NEW Dove Baby, its first-ever range of baby care products - available in Rich and Sensitive Moisture. Line-up includes: Shampoo, Tip-to-Toe Wash, Moisture Bar, Lotion and wipes. 

The Dove Beauty Bar is already #1 recommended bar by dermatologists and pediatricians in the U.S. (and yes, even gentler than Johnson's Baby and Ivory. I did the paper strip test myself at the Dove Plant last year!) So imagine this amazing new skincare collection from Dove for babies? My mommy friends are in love and I can't wait to try these out on the little one soon...🍼

NEW Baby Dove has products for all skin types in its Rich Moisture and Sensitive Moisture ranges.  Baby Dove’s Rich Moisture range has been developed for babies with normal to dry skin and goes beyond mildness to help replenish essential nutrients to help skin retain its natural moisture. The range is hypoallergenic with pH neutral, tear-free cleansers, and a fragrance specifically developed for delicate baby skin.  Baby Dove’s Sensitive Moisture range has been developed for babies with sensitive skin. It is fragrance free for sensitive skin and the range is hypoallergenic with pH neutral, tear-free cleansers.


Baby Dove is now available at food, drug, mass, value, baby, and online retailers. Visit Dove.com to find out more about Baby Dove products.

NEW IT Cosmetics GLOW


I received the most amazing mailer last week from IT Cosmetics, another addition to their stellar "Confidence Crew": NEW Confidence in Your Glow ($32 each, available in: Instant Nude Glow, Instant Natural Glow and Instant Warm Glow). What is IT? A skin-transforming healthy flush blushing bronzer. ITs your blush, bronzer and highlighter in one sweep! They pair perfectly with Heavenly Skin One-Sweep Wonder Brush #705 ($48).

NEW Dove Clear Finish



Here's another marvelous innovation from my loves at Dove, NEW Dove Invisible Dry Spray Antiperspirant goes on invisible, leaving no white marks on 100 colors of clothing. It provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection and offers the brand’s signature ¼ moisturizing technology to care for skin. Retails for $5.49 each and is available in two fragrances: 
  • Sheer Fresh crisp and clean floral fragrance 
  • Clear Finish fragranced with notes of rose and white flowers 
How it works: The active ingredient found in antiperspirants is a white powder and a primary contributor to white marks. The powder becomes visible on clothing due to light scattering, an optical effect. The new anti-marks protection technology combines a finer milled active ingredient with an innovative masking oil to reduce the overall appearance of white marks.

Anti-Aging: Eye Care


They say "the eyes are the windows to the soul", which they certainly are, so I make sure to keep my peepers pretty and youthful; wrinkle & dark circles free! Whether I keep my eye cream in the fridge for an extra cooling morning treat, or carry it in my purse on-the-go, I have an arsenal of eye care products I switch up (and love, thanks to my brands). Remember: always use your ring finger and gently tap - never rub - around the eye area, unless it's a roller-ball applicator. So, What are my must-haves?


2. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Gel Cream ($19)

3. Clinique All About Eyes™ Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage ($30)

4. It Cosmetics Confidence in an Eye Cream ($38)

5. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream ($48)

6. La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Contour Cream ($205)

7. IOMA PARIS Flash Youth Eye Contour Concentrate ($165)

Lisa Hoffman Fragrances

*Lisa Hoffman Tunisian Neroli Eau De Parfum
When it comes to fragrances, I look for soft, sweet, sensual and definitely sexy. That's exactly what I got, when reps for Lisa Hoffman Beauty sent me a bottle of Tunisian Neroli Eau de Parfum (2 fl. oz/60mL $65) to test drive. It's no secret that I have a ton of perfumes, but I received so many compliments while wearing this scent, that I simply haven't stopped using it (and the scent lingers all day long, despite it's light airy scent!) If you can't wear perfumes for whatever reason, then I recommend you try Lisa Hoffman's fragrance jewelry (totally refillable!)

*Lisa Hoffman Tunisian Neroli $22/50mL, $65/60mL Feminine and intoxicating, Tunisian Neroli is a seductive, alluring scent that inspires mystery and new romance. The sand-fringed Mediterranean meets the vast Sahara Desert in Africa’s tiny coastal country, Tunisia, a breathtaking destination with a rich history and a turquoise sea. Here, the oil of the Neroli blossom, the most highly-regarded flower in the region, was sought after by royals and aristocrats who frequented Tunisia’s open-air markets and bazaars for its bold, sensuous effect. Lisa took this fragrant, floral note and surrounded it with gardenia petals, sweet orange blossom, ylang ylang, and green buchu leaf to craft her multi-faceted fragrance, Tunisian Neroli - a romantic, modern scent that evokes the beauty and mystique of ancient Tunisia.

When it comes to curl care, I have pretty much tried and tested them all, sometimes creating my own cocktail of multiple products. Now this curl care line isn't new (launched last year, sent to me by reps in November and I've been hooked ever since), but the NEW Kenra Professional Curl Collection is a curl~girl's best friend: smells divine (seriously), the hold is great - I tend to touch and tousle my hair throughout the day, creating frizz - and is perfect products for those with loose waves, to tight coils. My curls are moisturized and look (and smell) great. #KenraCurl is Ev~Approved! 👍😊


The Kenra Professional Curl Collection includes:
