Simple Sensitive Skin

I recently received some Simple Sensitive Skin products from Klout.

Simple Sensitive Skin

I have really sensitive combination skin with patches that are oily and patches that are really dry. Really, really dry. the moisturizer worked well to help combat the drier parts without making my skin oily. The facial wipes also did a great job of removing makeup. All in all, the isn’t something I necessarily would have purchased to try, but now I would.

I was given a free product or sample because I’m a Klout influencer. I was under no obligation to receive the sample or talk about this company. I get no additional benefits for talking about the product or company.

This Year’s Beauty Trends

Read an article from Stuff Boston about beauty trends for 2012. The highlights:

Lips: bold colors are carrying over from last year with deep crimsons and pinks to highlight all the floral prints we’re seeing in fashion.

Hair: ditch the feather, but you knew that already. 😉

Eyes: play with other liners besides black, like gray or bronze.

Full article here. Enjoy!

Day at the Spa

Dove has teamed up with some fabulous salons and spas to bring their products and philosophy of the importance of real beauty to beauties around the country.

I was lucky enough to be invited for a day of pampering at La Dolce Vita Salon & Spa in Boston hosted by the ladies at  We were treated to a fantastic and relaxing spa party.  What could be better?  I had never been in La Dolce Vita before – it was adorable!  The two-floor salon was chicly decorated and very welcoming.

We were treated to shoulder massages and exfoliating elbow and underarm treatments. Did you just say “underarm”? Yes.  Underarm.  Truthfully?  It was really relaxing.  Think about it – we’re rough on our underarms and they deserve a little break sometimes.

We were also pampered with manicures.  I chose OPI’s “Cajun Shrimp” as my nail color.  I love it.

Thanks to La Dolce Vita and Dove for treating us to a fantastic experience!

UPDATE: CoverGirl Blast BzzCampaign

I apologize it’s been a little while since my last CoverGirl Blast update.  First of all, I love the lipgloss!  It’s not sticky, which is something of which lipglosses are often guilty.  And, while it isn’t “flavored,” it has a sweet sort of smell.

I was really excited about the eye shadow, but, truth be told, it broke after only using it once (!).  I don’t know what happened – the packaging is made in such a way that it can’t twist itself up like some lipsticks – so it’s not that.  It broke at the base like a lipstick would.  BUT, even though it broke, I think I would be willing to purchase one.  The one time I was able to use it – although I had in no way perfected the technique – I liked it.

Here’s a quick video to give you a better idea of the how-to:

In the Mood

Remember mood rings?  Don’t you wish your hands could still reflect your mood without a cheap-o ring? (Maybe?)  Well, now’s your chance.  Introducing Mood Polish, the (you guessed it) color-changing nail polish.  Each polish is $8 and changes colors with your body temper…er.. mood.

They continue to change color for the duration of your wear.  As they point out on their site, “Cool swim in the ocean? Warm subway ride? Frigid morning run? Sitting under the hair dryer at the salon? Amuse yourself by guessing what shade your delightfully bi-polar nail polish will be at any given moment!”
