I was literally obsessed when I saw this beautiful lip stain/ lip gloss duo.  I’m especially into beauty products that work double duty, Lip Fixation by Jane Iredale is fortified with natural lip plumping properties that include ginger root extract and avocado oil for intense moisture.  The colors are long-lasting, ultra-hydrating gorgeous shades of color that can take you from a full work day to after work cocktails. I couldn’t stop looking in the mirror, I was impressed that the lip stain lasted throughout lunch and all I needed was a dab of gloss for extra sparkle.

Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner

 

 I’m in love with John Masters Organic Lavender & Avocado intensive hair conditioner.  It’s the first hair conditioner I used that left my hair manageable and gloriously soft. 

I’ve looked everywhere for a conditioner that would leave my hair hydrated and moisturized.  Plus I love the light lavender scent, it calmed and soothed me after a day at the office. 

The key ingredients are: 

Lavender Oil – slows hair loss and helps treat dermatitis and eczema. 

Avocado Oil – Moisturizes and conditions the hair. 

Soy Protein – Makes hair look thicker, fuller and strengthens the hair follicles – leaves hair shiny. 

White Tea – detoxifies the hair and scalp. 

Arnica – hydrates the scalp and stimulates hair growth. 

This unique hair conditioner is intensive for dry damaged hair and the light weight formula won’t weigh hair down, it’s also safe for color treated hair.  

The beauty is that all the ingredients in John Masters Organics are made with certified organic ingredients. 

It’s easy being healthy with John Masters Organics.

Certified Organic – Lip Delivery Nutrition by Intelligent Nutrients

I often wake up with dry chapped lips and have to go through the process every morning of removing dry flakey skin.  I prefer to avoid that and require a lip balm that provides me with hydration and nutrition.  I recently discovered Intelligent Nutrients.  I’ve been testing Lip Delivery Nutrition, a lip balm product with anti-aging benefits and intense hydration.   All Intelligent Nutrient products are made with their signature blend of super-antioxidant, anti-aging seed oil – known as Intellume. Intelligent Nutrient products are also formulated with certified organic ingredients, because everything we put into our bodies should be good for them. After a long afternoon lunch at the Grove my lips stayed soft and hydrated.  I love having healthy lips, it makes it easier in the mornings when I’m applying lipstick – for that irresistible kissable pout.
