Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream

Summer moisturizer has to be just so – it needs to be light enough to work under sunscreen and makeup, but heavy enough to actually be able to take care of dry skin. The light summery gels is what I’ve been turning to lately, but when I need something that’s a bit more heavy duty, […]

New Vita Liberata 10 Minute Tan

I love self-tanner in the summer time.  I don’t bother with it in the winter, but when the weather is warmer, a tan just is a little more forgiving.  It makes everything look toned and skin imperfections just seem to be less obvious. A great way to apply self-tanner is to use one that is […]

Nivea 2-in-1 Moisturizing Primer

For the last little while, Nivea Men’s Aftershave has been a cult product that women have used as primer for their foundation.  Apparently, it absorbed easily and left skin matte and ready for foundation.  Because it was made for men, it was moisturizing but with a finish that was impossible to see in the mirror. Now, […]
