New Vichy Ideal Body Spa Showers

In-shower body treatments are the new way to take care of yourself.  Not only can you get clean but increasingly, you can hydrate, self-tan, and exfoliate all without turning the hot water off.

Hydration with a Dose of Sunscreen

I really love Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost moisturizers because they’re light and absorb quickly, and so I’ve added their latest Hydro Boost Gel Cream with SPF 15 into my skincare regimen.  Normally, I prefer formulas that have more than spf 15, but I’m not minding using this one right now because it hydrates so well.  Literally, […]
