Nerium Day Cream, Night Cream and Eye Serum
I always recommend Nerium skincare products to friends and family because they're effective and well worth the splurge. You can purchase 3 Nerium products to create an easy anti-aging skincare routine. It's great for bossbabes, moms or anyone who is constantly on the go. Nerium offers 3 effective facial products to add to your routine - Nerium Age Defying Day Cream and NIght Cream and Nerium Eye Serum. Loaded with super antioxidants and patented technology that helps reduce pores, fine, lines, wrinkles and discoloration.
- The Day Cream provides extra protection with a formula that contains jojoba esters, a lightweight, natural moisturizer for long-lasting hydration along with various antioxidants (vitamin E, vitamin C and green tea) to guard against damage
- At night: The Night Cream, which has a soft, unique, breathable mask-like texture, also contains a cocktail of hydrating oils, including: castor seed oil, which is super-hydrating and softens the skin; olus oil, which moisturizes andhydrolyzed quinoa, which soothes irritated skin.
- Nerium’s Age-Defying Eye Serum is great used morning and evening as an advanced age-fighting product that works to address all the signs of aging around the eye area to help you look fresh and bright-eyed. It works immediately to diminish the appearance of fine lines, hydrating the eye area as it dries to a soft, matte finish. Over time, it helps reduce dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles.
Dry your hair in half the time with DreamDry’s NEW DreamTurban™! It was featured in THE ZOE REPORT's Summer Box of Style, Easy as 1, 2, 3 , as the chicest way to dry your hair from the premier blow-dry and styling salon by Rachel Zoe. Unlike cotton towels, this gentle turban doesn’t weigh down or pull on your hair.

The machine-washable wrap’s unique design features an elastic band at the end of the turban and a button at the base, allowing you to secure the wrap in place while you get ready for your day.

Kaffe Facial Coffee Scrub
Kaffé products bring the rich flavors of Kona coffee and the magic of Haulalai’s and Muana Loa’s volcanic soil to a luxurious line of cosmetic products. I tried the Facial Coffee Scrub and I am in love because it combines two of my favorite things – coffee and a good, natural microdermabrasion inspired treatement. Kaffe products were developed to capture the rejuvenating effects of Kona seed oil: This coffee scrub increases the production of collagen and elastin, hydrates skin and protecting against the effects of ultraviolet light on skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles and dry, rough skin. My skin feels healthy and vibrant and many of my acne marks and skin discolorations have faded.

Farmacie Candle Collection
Soap & Paper Factory just introduced their new Farmacie Candle Collection. This collection of premium, fragranced soy candles are packaged in chic apothecary jars and feature botanical scents based on the herbs and flowers used in traditional medicine. The Farmacie Candles are available in these three fragrances: Marigold Calendula, Lavender Clary Sage and Red Rose Saffron. My favoritte is the Lavender Clary Sage - Calming lavender takes center stage in this bright, refreshing fragrance. The scent blends the citrusy notes of bergamot with crisp clary sage for an earthy scent.
I have an easy 5 minute solution for women with all skin types that can correct major eye-area complaints and turn back the years - Lumixyl Revitaleyes Eye Brightening Cream. Gentle, but fast-acting, the all-in-one Lumixyl Revitaleyes is perfect for those who want to brighten tired eyes without using harsh ingredients. The key ingredient in Revitaleyes is Decapeptide-12, a peptide developed by a team of researchers and dermatologists at Stanford University to combat hyperpigmentation without the harmful effects of hydroquinone – a controversial ingredient included in many brightening products on the market. It also contains key ingredients like Shea Butter and Glycerin which hydrate and smooth skin while active peptides minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Chrysin helps remove iron deposits beneath the eyes, resulting in the reduction of dark circles and Bamboo extract provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. Purchase: LovelySkin.com.
