Rituals Sakura Collection – Inspired by Ancient Traditions

disclosureScreen Shot 2015-03-03 at 2.13.28 PM

Some of our best beauty products and practices are inspired by ancient traditions. For centuries, the Japanese have celebrated the annual flowering of the Cherry Blossom, or Sakura. This marks an awakening of nature and symbolizes that beauty is momentary and life must be enjoyed. Inspired by this tradition, the Rituals Sakura collection includes a body scrub, shower foam, body cream and body mist and blends the sweetness of cherry blossom with nourishing organic rice milk.

I recently received these products to try and I have to exclaim over how much I love the scent! It smells wonderful and oh so relaxing. You can celebrate each day as a new beginning with Rituals in four steps.

Step 1: Body Scrub
Experience ultimate softness with the Rituals Sugar Sakura Body Scrub that melts on your skin

Step 2: Shower Foam
Feel reborn with Rituals sensational shower foam Zensation

Step 3: Body Cream
Reward and nourish your skin with Rituals velvety soft Magic Touch Body Cream 


Step 4: Body Mist
Celebrate life and envelop yourself in the Rituals Blossom Water mist fragrance

Plus, from now until March 29, 2015, you can receive a free body cream with any $50+ purchase at RITUALS… home and body cosmetics! 

Winter Beautifiers – Beat the Blizzards with this Beauty RoundUp

For most of us across the country, this winter has been unbearably cold — downright freezing, in fact. With negative wind chills and crazy snow storms, don’t let your beauty suffer from dehydrated skin, chapped lips, cracked hands and frizzy hair. Even though thunder, snow, and frigid winds may ruin your day, your hair and skin will be safe with this beauty roundup.

NEW! Burt’s Bees Sheer Body Lotion, ($10; burtsbees.com): If you’re looking for a lightweight moisturizer with a light-weight scent–look no further. It’s formulated with Safflower Oil Oleosomes, which are clinically shown to instantly moisturize skin and leave it feeling silky and smooth. So spritz away and let your skin (and nose) feel fragrantly refreshed.

Lauren B. Beauty Nail & Cuticle Balm, ($30; laurenbbeauty.com): This rich hydrator absorbs instantly to restore parched, straggly cuticles to their prime. Our advanced amino acid complex and biotin promotes healing; sweet almond oil, mango & shea butter, and Vitamin E add moisture; and beeswax creates a water-resistant barrier for extra protection.

Molton Brown Rhubarb & Rose Replenishing Hand Cream, ($15, moltonbrown.com): A replenishing hand cream blended with white truffle extract and rose. This intensive hand cream is an instantly absorbed daily treat for delectably soft and luxuriously moisturized hands with temptingly sweet aromas.

 

Josie Maran Argan Hot Oil Self-Heating Hair Treatment, ($36; josiemaran.com): This expert treatment repairs and restores hair in just one minute. Its gentle formula is infused with Argan Oil, which contains a large amount of vitamin E to reverse damage caused by heat and over-styling, leaving hair smoother, shinier, and healthier. In the shower, the oil warms itself up to the ideal temperature for penetrating strands to effectively seal in moisture.

Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Anti-Breakage and Anti-Frizz Restoring Hair Mask, ($15, target.com): Ensuring your hair is healthy and fortified is the only way to keep it frizz-free. To really restore damaged hair that’s prone to breakage and frizz requires major nourishment found in this deeply restoring hair mask.

NEW! Burt’s Bees Squeezable Beeswax Lip Balm, ($3.99; burtsbees.com): It’s the original Beeswax Lip Balm you love—just squeezable. This version of the Burt’s Bees classic balm is softer and smoother with a slanted tip for precise application. This 100% natural formula contains moisturizing Beeswax and Vitamin E to keep lips soft and replenished—and, of course, a splash of Peppermint for that signature tingle.

Borrow from Charlotte’s Closet! Designer Dresses Up to 75% Off

Disclosure CompensationCharlottes Closet

Wouldn’t you just love to have a really fashionable celebrity BFF who would let you raid their closet at any time, day or night? While we can’t get you into Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lawrence’s closets, we DO have an online version of this concept for you: Charlotte’s Closet.

closet1

Charlotte’s Closet was dreamed up when 12 year old Charlotte needed a nice dress for a fancy party. Tired of spending a fortune on dresses Charlotte would only wear one time, and familiar with the concept of dress rental sites for adults, Charlotte’s mother discovered there wasn’t an option like this for teenagers but the demand for one was huge.  Jen Forman formed the company Charlotte’s Closet, an online dress rental company for tweens and teens. You can borrow designer dresses for up to 75% off their original price! Girls will love the selection while parents will love the prices.

Want to know what makes Charlotte’s Closet extra special? You can actually visit their showroom in NYC to try on dresses and reserve one up to five months before the date you need it. Just email reservations@charlottes-closet.com to book your appointment.

Here’s how to use Charlotte’s Closet:

  • Once you find a dress or two that you love, select one size. Charlotte’s Closet actually sends you a second size as a back up just in case, for no extra charge!
  • Enter the date of the special event and the dress will be delivered the week of the event.
  • Once the event is over, attach the pre-paid UPS retrun label to the original box and ship it back. You don’t even have to have it dry cleaned!

Treat Your Feet with Geluxury Slippers + Reader Giveaway

disclosureGeluxury Slippers Cow Print

Relax at home and “slipper” into something a little more comfortable – more  comfortable for your feet, that is!

Geluxury slippers are super cute, but their primary purpose is to provide an intense skin repair treatment. Specially formulated to repair even the most difficult skin, Geluxury’s patent-pending SmartGel lining is infused with 7 therapeutic botanical and essential oils:

  • Jojoba Oil to rebuild nail beds and cuticles
  • Grape Seed Oil to improve skin cell health and tone
  • Soybean Oil to even skin tone and smooth skin texture
  • Mineral Oil to prevent moisture loss and soften skin
  • Avocado Oil to decrease the effects of aging
  • Canola Oil to sooth dry, irritated skin
  • Olive Oil to help stimulate skin cell growth
  • Ceramides to seal and protect skin

I received the cute pair pictured up top and after just one treatment I was amazed at how soft my feet felt. They feel a little “strange” the first time I slipped them on. They have a cool, calming feel from the gel. But it was a relaxing enjoyable experience wearing the slippers and I am ready to wear them a LOT to get my feet ready for spring!

Jewel-Toned Eyes: Try This Winter Beauty Trend

Disclosure AffiliateJewel-Toned Eyes

The ever-popular Jewel Tone Eye isn’t a new trend, but is classically gorgeous and especially popular this Winter. You might be afraid to try this much color on your eyes, but with these simple tips, your look will definitely shine this season! First, you need to determine which shades are best for you.

Blue Eyes really pop with brown-based tones like bronze and gold.

Brown Eyes look rich with violet/amethyst or blue/cobalt.

Green & Hazel Eyes are complemented by violet, silver or other green tones, like emerald.

To help color last, use an eyeshadow primer before application. With such a bold eye look, try to keep the rest of your makeup minimal. It’s okay to mix it up and try different hues, but don’t try to match your eye makeup to your clothing. Shades I’m loving this season:

gloMinerals Jeweled Eye Pencil – there’s a shade to complement every skin tone!

Pur Minerals Eye Defining Pencil with Smudger in Black Amethyst, Midnight Sapphire and Peridot are gorgeous!

gloMinerals gloEye Shadow in Mermaid is so dreamy and the perfect, rich blue-green.

Pur Minerals Perfect Fit Eye Shadow Trio in Lady Luck (emerald, bronze and cream) and Rebel (amethyst, pink and deep plum) – you can’t beat three shades in one!

Osmosis Colour Gem Collection Water Color Holiday Kit comes with the beautiful glimmering shades of amethyst, topaz and onyx – a must try kit for everyone!

Which jewel tone is your favorite? Let me know! Here’s a hot tip: through 2/23 you can take $10 off orders $50+ at beautystoredepot.com with code FREE10 at checkout. FREE SHIPPING, too!

TUTORIAL: Get Chrissy Teigen’s Grammys Hair + Macadamia Professional Giveaway

Chrissy Teigen Grammys 2015

On the arm of her Grammy-nominated artist husband John Legend, Chrissy Teigen took to the 57th Annual Grammys Red Carpet last night in heavenly white Versace and her hair in Angelic Beach Waves to match. Want to know how to recreate that look? Luckily for us, the creator of her style, Celebrity Hairstylist and Macadamia Professional International Creative Director Giannandrea, shared his “how to” for achieving this sultry silhouette.

  1. Start with wet hair and apply Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer($25) to crown only.
  2. Apply Macadamia Professional Blow Dry Lotion($24) through the entire length of the hair.
  3. Blow dry large sections with a large round brush to increase volume all over, especially on the top layers. Part hair down the middle.
  4. Starting slightly below the crown, wrap small sections around a ¾-inch curling iron.
  5. Use a flat iron to gently flatten the waves, making sure to keep the waves and not to remove the roundness.
  6. Flatten the ends for an edgy finish. Spray each section with Macadamia Control Working Spray($23) to hold and set the waves.
  7. Using hands, run Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Spray($31.95) throughout the length to increase shine and supple texture.
