Soothing Summer Skin with Sebamed Cleansing Shower Oil

While we are all excited about the high temperatures, beaches and sun bathing ( with SPF of course), I often find that caring for my skin post fun in the sun is daunting. It's tricky finding a way to get the hot and stickiness of you like... yesterday when it seems as though you are shrouded in a cloud of humidity and your skin is on the verge of peeling from sunburns.

Well say hello to Sebamed Cleansing Shower Oil, an ultra- mild , 100% soap-free skin conditioning gel that gets rid of the your sticky summer product goop without dryness or irritation. Sebamed product line is also free of parabens and adjusts to a pH of 5.5 to help maintain your moisture level.

For the past few weeks I've been pleasantly pleased with Sebamed Cleansing shower oil as its ultra soothing to my skin and post shower, I don't need to put on any body lotion ( which is amazing as my skin is super dry), I just put on my SPF and go!

Sebamed products are available at and

Summer 2011: NARS Wonder lipgloss

Just when you think the citrus craze has brought us "lippie addicts" all the greatest lipsticks, glosses and glazes for Summer 2011, comes NARS Cosmetics Wonder lipgloss.
This juicy shade is described as a sheer mandarin orange shade with pink and gold shimmer on NARS' website and it it true to the description.
I find that if you are intimidated by other interpretations of bold citrus lipcolors, that you will be pleasantly surprised by wonder. Its a "mirror-free" shade, meaning you don't need a mirror to apply to know that it looks good ( something I tend to do with my other prized orange spectrum lippies).

Wonder lipgloss is limited edition and is available at NARS and
