Nordstrom 2018 Holiday



The Christmas countdown is officially winding down, and if you're still dashing around doing last minute shopping (or in need of that one special gift), the clock is ticking. So what better way to go gifting, than with my very good friends Nordstrom? I had the ultimate pleasure of attending the Nordstrom 2018 Press Preview eight weeks ago - my second time attending - back on October 24th, when brands reps unveiled Nordstrom's 2018 holiday selection. This event may very well rival my Superbowl (covering backstage beauty at New York Fashion Week)... HANDS DOWN! The "heavenly heavy haul" may also be why:

Vaseline® Clinical Care


The bitter blast of winter is here, bringing with it rough, dry and cracked skin. It seems that no matter how much lotion you use, dry skin just won't go away. Well, Vaseline® introduced Clinical Care™, a breakthrough line of dermatologist-tested body products aimed to rescue hard to heal dry skin during moments you need it most. There are six products in the Clinical Care range, and I received a mailer from Vaseline reps, and thoroughly tested three in the line for one week, and the results are amazing. My skin is smooth and supple; hydrated all day - and night.


The new lotions contain a Barrier Repair Complex™ – a unique formula made up of glycerin, pro-lipids, and Vaseline Jelly, that when combined strengthen skin’s moisture barrier, transforming it from extremely dry to healed in five days. The specially designed blend of Glycerin delivers moisture directly to skin, with Pro-lipids serving as building blocks to create a moisture barrier, and iconic Vaseline® Jelly to help lock in moisture. This trifecta of ingredients quickly rescues very dry, rough skin.


Vaseline® Clinical Care™ range can be used daily, is Dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic. Let's take a further look at the six products in the line:

NEW Coco Cabana Cream


It's been a great weekend, especially with Sol de Janeiro's NEW Coco Cabana Cream launching yesterday (8.1 oz./240mL - $45.00). It's no secret that I am addicted to their Bum Bum Cream (pronounced boom boom), and it's one-of-a-kind delectable scent, but this new cream is out of this world. Think coconut and sugar, and this cream is a moisture magnet oil-in-water body cream that provides 72 hours of moisture. SWEET!


I've had the pleasure of test driving this divine new cream since attending the product launch with Sol de Janeiro on November 8th, and what an event it was: Brazil Carnaval theme, four floors of event space complete with Samba dancers and a synchronized swimmer - check out stills from my Instagram stories:

Dove Deodorant


With fall weather rounding into winter (we're already into the holidays and winter begins on December 21st), I have been wearing chunky sweaters and long sleeves since October, and it's easy to neglect your underarm area since they're undercover. I personally still go sleeveless indoors, so my underarms must always be smooth and look immaculate. This is why I trust Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and Dove Dry Spray for soft, smooth and healthy looking underarms (and no dark spots - clear skin!) See how below: 


A fan for years, and it still thrills me whenever Dove sends me a package (or "Love from Dove" as I call it). More importantly, Dove products are now cruelty-free accredited by PETAI love Dove deodorants all year round, especially during the harsh winter, when I notice I have super soft underarms - all while receiving top-notch sweat and odor protection that I rely on with my stress-filled, busy days. 

Dove Advanced Care Beauty Finish Antiperspirant provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection plus the added skincare benefits of NutriumMoisture™, which is designed to help skin retain its moisture balance over time and aid in the skin’s natural renewal process. The formula helps prevent conditions such as irritation, uneven skin-tone, dryness and red marks with ¼ moisturizers and NutriumMoisture™ for softer, smoother underarms.

Dove Beauty Finish Dry Spray Antiperspirant has all the care of Dove that goes on instantly dry for a cleaner feel. It provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection with ¼ moisturizers for added skincare benefits.
