2017 Holiday Fragrance Gift Pick - Kat Von D Saint Eau de Parfum

Kat Von D Saint Eau de Parfum Eau de Parfum Spray

Kat Von D Saint Eau de Parfum Eau de Parfum Spray is the perfect fragrance gift for the person in your life who really loves fragrance collecting.

I recently discovered Saint and love how delicate it is and how it blends a large number of floral notes with unexpected sweeter notes.

The strongest opening notes, the Jasmine and Tiare flower are crisp and lasted throughout the day.  There are some light citrus notes which help balance it out, like the Mandarin Within a few minutes the sweeter, softer notes came in like the caramel, vanilla and mirabelle plum.

This scent lasted all day on me, and the dry down, which I experienced at the end of the day was full of soft musk and sandalwood, along with lingering vanilla and Tiare flower notes on my skin.

Kat Von D Saint Eau de Parfum Travel
Spray 0.34 oz/ 10 mL 

What's really special about this scent it that it's a crisp, slightly sweet floral that I haven't ever experienced before.  It's just strong enough to envelop you in the scent throughout the day, but never overpowering for others, even at close range.

Kat Von D Saint Eau de Parfum Eau de Parfum Spray will work year round, but will make an especially lovely warmer weather fragrance for outdoor events and parties.

The Kat Von D Saint Eau de Parfum Eau de Parfum Spray bottle is also magnificent for perfume collectors with beautiful filigree details on the bottle and the cap.  It's truly unique in every way.  Even the Travel Spray has a version of the filigree pattern on it, making it a perfect stocking stuffer or treat for yourself while you're on the road.  - RLB

4 Unbelievable Ways to Get The Body You Want in 2018

 Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion 

Firm, Smooth and Hydrated Skin

Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion is one of the best lotions on the market - mass or upscale.  The fact that it's under $9 is incredible too!

The lotion is very silky and lightweight, with a fresh, clean scent that many of the Nivea products have . There is a lot of "slip" to it, so once I add it to my skin, it took seconds to spread it across my arms, etc. and absorb into my skin.  It left a beautiful sheen and instant moisture for my skin.

What's different about this lotion is that it also works to improve the tone of skin, firming it.  Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion contains Q10, which works to tighten the outer layers of the skin.

The product claims with regular use, skin becomes firmer and softer, and I did experience this. I used Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion every day for 3+ weeks and noticed how consistently smooth and hydrated my skin was, even on the coldest and driest days.  As far as the firming, there was improvement there as well.  My skin was tighter and more toned.

Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion can also be used for hands and even the face (if you're not sensitive to fragrances).  It's no surprise that none other than the gorgeous soon-to-be Duchess, American Actress Meghan Markle has raved about this lotion in many beauty interviews over the years as well!

While this would not be considered a "cellulite cream" Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Body Lotion does make a significant difference in the overall texture and feel of skin.  I'm a convert and you should be too!

Instantly Cleanse and Freshen Wherever you Are

Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Water + Mimosa Flower Showerless Cleansing Mist is a new body care product from the eco-friendly line of products from Unilever.

This isn't just a body spray or spray deodorant, it actually gives results similar to taking a shower - but without any added water.  It's a completely new category in body care and I'm very excited by it.

The Cleansing Mist is infused with Hawaiian coconut water and Moroccan mimosa flower absolute.  The coconut water helps with hydration, and handpicked Moroccan mimosa flower gives your skin a delicate fresh scent.  I love the fragrance, which was a light floral with green notes and a touch of sweetness from the rasberry cassis.

The light, fine mist didn't leave any film or sticky feeling on my skin.  Once it dried, my skin did feel clean and fresh, and it was as hydrated as if I had applied a light lotion.  This is perfect for a post gym workout when you don't have much time to get back to work or errands, or if you're in the rush in the morning or before heading back out at night.

Since the Love Beauty and Planet line is all about being good to ourselves and the planet, you can feel good that the product is also: 100% Vegan, Organic No animal testing
No articifial dies, No Parabens and more.

Enhanced Body Confidence  

First, you'll need to find a quality beauty clinic.  You may be looking for a breast enhancement due to breast feeding, weight loss, aging or mastectomy.  If so, you'll need clear and detailed information on what is involved in breast enhancement, the process and techniques available, the cost, the down time and other frequently asked questions.

Whether it's to enlarge small breasts, or to correct physical flaws, this cosmetic procedure can add volume and fullness to your breasts while also boosting your confidence.

A Healthy Color and Glow All Year Round
Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer Medium/Tan

I'm a huge fan of the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizers, and although I don't need to self-tan, I was curious about this product being an easy way to get a natural glow and color.  I asked a friend who uses self tanner to use this along with me, since I wanted to see how it would work to even up some tan lines I got from a recent vacation.

The results were impressive - for both of us.  What we both agreed on is that being able to add right out of the shower, without worrying about streaky lines of color, drying time or rubbing off on clothes and the towel was fantastic.

I used some on the lighter areas where my lines were with my skin still wet, and then dried off as usual with my towel.  My friend added it all over her body, similar to a lotion application, with a focus on her upper body and arms.  There was no creases, streaky parts or uneven color.   There simply isn't an easier self tanner product on the market than this one.  Tip: The instructions advise: Start with a dime-size on each arm and a quarter-size on each leg and adjust as needed. Use sparingly around elbows, knees and ankles

The effect was not a deep dark tan for my friend, but it was a very natural golden shade with a beautiful glow finish.  It was so natural in fact, that after using it for 2x over the course of 4 days and several people asked here where she had just come back from vacation!

I also liked the hydration effects, which were similar to the original Jergen Wet Skin Moisturizers I love.  I saw that my skin got a little deeper in color, and also had a very nice glow to it, which matched up nicely with the natural tan I had previously gotten.  For my friend, her golden brown color lasted with 2-3 x weekly application - and no more spray tans or messy self tanners for her!
