I’M LOVING…Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer Aloe Soothe – Spray & Go!


Fun on the heart, heavy on the wallet, and HELL on the skin.

I had such a ball hosting the red carpet for the North American Hairstylists Awards at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas this past Sunday in the aforementioned Las Vegas.

But my skin? Well, it didn’t have such a ball.

The morning after the big award show, my skin was ashy, dry and just sad looking.

Truth talk.

But, I was slated to wear a breezy short summer romper that day that would show off my legs and arms.
So, what’s a parched girl to do?

Well, lucky for me, I packed my Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer Aloe Soothe ($6.49) in my bag and took it with me to the convention center for my brand meetings at Cosmoprof.

I stepped outside and sprayed it on, and I was good to go in under 10 seconds. Best of all, you can hold the bottle any which direction, and with its 360-degree continuous spray technology, you’re covered. It’s the perfect moisturizer for the busy girl like me on the go. I mean, you literally just Spray and Go! Yep. It’s really that easy!

Spray and go! Instant hydration - without the mess - for dry desert days

So, how’s it work? Its unique fast to apply, quick to dry formula heals dry skin in seconds, and all without staining or sticking to your clothes. Plus, it’s good for us senstive-skinned sirens, which isn’t always easy to come by.

The final verdict? With micro-droplets of uber-hydrating Vaseline Jelly to heal dryness, my skin was glowing and soft in seconds, with no grease in sight.

Now, that’s a winning bet.

Dawn Do? Spray on Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer Aloe Soothe, right after your nighttime bath on towel-dried skin for deeper absorption. And, during the day, spray on your moisturizer and then  rub in your favorite luminous bronzer for an instant glowing hue.


Thirsty Thursday: Olivina Milk & Honey Collection

Thirsty Thursday: Olivina Milk & Honey Collection

I once had an old boyfriend who loved the smell of a honey & milk body wash more than anything…and I loved the scent on him. It smelled like honey and cream and baby freshness. I used to just curl up in that sweet smell…but I digress.

To both of our dismay, the company discontinued it unexpectedly.  I looked for it everywhere to no avail.

Well, I was slathering on Olivina Milk & Honey Hand & Body Lotion the other day and that same ex was here (don’t get excited, now, were BFFs now – no funny business). But both he and Miss Ellie (my pup) smelled the lotion and they did a double take. See, it reminded us all of his old, beloved body wash.

As for me, it’s the perfect lotion to apply right before bedtime as it reminds me of a warm cup of cream tea with honey…and misty, watercolored memories, of course. Plus, with shea butter, olive oil and grape seed extract, it richly hydrates my skin leaving me silky, smooth and velvety. Perfect for drifting off to dream…

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Bath & Body Works Pure Paradise Collection

With Flossie about to hit Hawaii and summer’s end in sight, I’m wanting any indication possible that summer can last just a little bit longer.

So what bathtime delights am I turning to in this tropical storm time?
Why, the Pure Paradise Bath & Body Works collection, of course!

Bath & Body Works Pure Paradise Collection ($11 -$16.50) - Pictured here: Pure Paradise Body Lotion ($11), Pure Paradise Shower Gel ($11), and Pure Paradise Fragrance Mist ($14)

Last night, I took a long, hot bath soaking in the Pure Paradise shower gel ($11). It foamed up a bit and made my bathroom smell like a tropical vacation meets my old days at camp. I closed my eyes and was able to smell both the memories of my yesterday and the future memories of my tomorrow.

What do I mean by that? Simple. It reminds me of a tropical vacation due to its summer seduction quality that it seems to have all bottled up while reminding me of my times at summer camp – filled with innocence, first love and the warm night breeze.

Of course, that might all be from the sumptuous star fruit, juicy guava or dewy cassis. Or it could be from the luscious gardenia, frangipani or water lily. But the white musk, blond woods and sunkissed coconut certainly don’t harsh my tropical bathtime buzz!

And when it came time to hydrate, I wanted the scent – and nostalgic feeling – to continue. So to town I went with the Pure Paradise Fragrance Mist ($14) and Pure Paradise Body Lotion ($11).

I went to sleep in a seductive slumber dreaming of my old pre-teen boyfriends from camp and my future boyfriends on the beach.
Now, that’s what I call a good evening, ladies!




BF Asks: What scents remind you of the summers of your youth? 

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Mama Mio Omega Body Oil

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Mama Mio OMega Body Oil ($35)


I’m gonna keep this simple and sweet just like the pretty pink product that sits on my vanity sink: Mama Mio Omega Body Oil.

Y’all know I love oil. As I may have mentioned before, my feeling is that women don’t use enough of it.

Why? Fear. Displaced fear. And when 30 comes around, we start seeing the results of our oversight. Fear of what, you ask? Oh, I’ve heard everything: “it’s too rich”, “it’ll break me out”, “I’m oily”, yada yada yada.

It’s not true, ladies. None of it. It’s unfounded fear but nevertheless there is fear out there of oil. Of the good stuff that’s proven to keep your skin younger looking.

But with Mama Mio’s Omega Body Oil, fear not, fair maiden.
Appropriately named as it contains argan, sweet almond, jojoba and safflower seed oils with vitamin E, Omega Body Oil melts into your skin in under 15 seconds flat.

They even call it fast food for dry skin! And this fast food will actually make you look BETTER!! It is your “Gatorade” for instant skin hydration.

Applied right out of the shower (or bath, in my case) onto damp skin, your fear has no place to fester as you are left with only gorgeous, glowing, glistening, youthful, soft and supple skin. The results are instantly apparent making it ideal for date night or any night!

I oiled up before a party last week, wore a dress with spaghetti straps and, kid you not, received over 5 compliments in an hour about my “glowing skin”, “soft skin”, “young skin”. Ok, I admit it, that sold me. Compliments get me every time.

So as Gwen stefani said, a few years back,  Whatcha’ Waitin’ for?



p.s. Besides the instant results, I love the subtle scent and I adore the packaging. I’m partial to pink, y’know?

BF Asks: Do you have a fear of oil or have you seen the glowing light?


Dry 911: L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream

Is there anything worse in summer than being hot and miserable with dry, itching skin?

Or running out the door only to discover that your parched, lackluster legs are a little reminiscent of a reptile?

Well, here is your Summer Solution to parched skin.

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream:

L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream ($42)

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream ($42) is just what it says – RICH!
And yet you don’t have to be to have it for yourself.

With ultra-hydrating shea butter (which just smells like summer if you ask me) and the hint- of-a-scent of jasmine, this uber-rich whipped cream both hydrates and is absorbed quickly into the skin.

It also leaves my skin with a subtle matte sheen that makes me look like I’ve never known a day of dry skin in my life. And, honey, I have known many a dry day!

Perfect while getting dressed and running out the door  – or, my fave – keeping it on my bedside table and slathering it on after my bedtime bath.

On my bedside table: L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream

I figure that way, it’s got a good 6-9 hours to do its job!
And, honey, does it do the job!!

I wake up with glowing, nourished, super-soft skin. And it never goes without being noticed! Just ask my neighbor-friend Matty. He just told me how soft my skin was 10 minutes ago!

Try it yourself and let me know your thoughts below!
