Reviewers Say:

The Warming Glow Body Oil is amazing. After you apply it, it actually changes temperature while you are messaging. It feels like a professional massage. The blend of aromas is perfect. You will be constantly asking your partner “Honey, can you just massage my back?” I actually bring this when I get a professional massage and have the therapist use it instead of the oils they use.

still blondeThe Chief Blonde Remarks: Welcome to the Just January Giveaway Hop hosted by GoingCrazy!! WannaGo??!! and Planet Weidknecht.  After entering to win Burts Bees Giveaway, check out all the blogs on the linky at the end of this post  and enter to win some great prizes!!

PLEASE! Who doesn’t adore Burt’s Bees Products?  Little girls do, teenage girls do, young mothers do, middle age women do, and vintage lovelies do as well.  When anyone at my house ever gets a Burt’s Bees product at Christmas, you can just hear the other women in the room offer a collective  “Oh!  Burt’s Bees. I love their stuff!”.

I think these gift packages prepared by Burt’s Bees for this winter are just perfect for Valentine’s day.  I know that my daughter and daughter-in-law will adore the lip balms and shimmers.  They are sheer with just enough fun color to dress up any outfit.  For my son’s girlfriend, I want her to have the Best of Burt Bee’s as it contains a some of Burt’s foot and hand care products, with Alyssa being a hairdresser she deserves this extra pampering!

Another aspect that I really like about Burt’s Bees products is that they really care how their products affect you and the world.  Their products are all natural with an emphasis on earth friendly.  From their birth in a little house in Maine to a booming business for more than 25 years, Burt’s Bees seems to be forging ahead with its Natural Philosophy. I think its cool that they have launched the  Natural Seal, which certifies products that meet the stringent requirements set by the Natural Products Association.

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms have been a huge hit with gals who want it all – a hint of color and the soft, moisturizing care of a lip balm. Perfect for gifting, we offer them in nourishing Duos that each feature a popular Pink and Red shade, chosen for everyday wearability.

Skin Authority Moisturizing Cream Cleanser Review

[ 136 ] September 15, 2012 |

Entertain yourself at Home with Skin Authority Skincare

+ a DVD and Book!
Skin Authority Night Revitalizer Moisturizing Cream Cleanser

Skin Authority Moisturizing Cream Cleanser ($42)  and Night Revitalizer ($57)
still blondeThe Chief Blonde Remarks:  Skin has two new products for you to try.  The first is the Night Revitalizer:
Skin Authority Night Revitalizer

and the second new product is the Skin Authority Moisturizing Cream Cleanser:

Skin Authority Moisturizing Cream Cleanser

Skin Authority Moisturizing Cream Cleanser

I love the Skin Authority Night Revitalizer because it works without stinging.  Sometimes I think we believe that a  product that brightens and revives dull skin needs to “feel” like it’s working with a little pain.  But the Night Revitalizer works through the night, gently, to do its work.  Fairly pricey at $57, you will see results and be happy that  you are getting moisturizers along with vitamins and  antioxidants.

As you all know, I am a massive fan of Skin Authority’s Daily Cleanser.   But I now have a new Cleanser to love.  The reason I love the Daily Cleanser is that it really gets the mineral makeup out of my pores!  So when Skin Authority introduced their Moisturizing Cream Cleanser I was intrigued.  I have uber-dry skin exaggerated by menopause, so if I can cleanse my skin..and moisturize..hmmm..I liked that thought.  The new cleanser worked fabulous.  Cleaned my skin just like the Skin Authority Daily Cleanser, left it moisturized AND had no fragrance smell (a big plus for those that are fragrance sensitive!)  Can you see me doing the happy dance.  At $42, you might think this is a pricey product but it last eons and is worth EVERY SINGLE CENT!  Women over 45 — Double thumbs up recommend for this new cleanser by Skin Authority!

Revlon Expression Experiment, Women over 45 Take the Challenge

[ 12 ] July 17, 2012 |

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Revlon. All opinions are 100% mine.

Challenge Yourself!  Express Yourself with New Makeup from Revlon

Revlon Expression Experiment

Revlon Expression Experiment

I Challenged Myself with the Revlon Expression Experiment

exp_exp_logo.jpg (2 documents, 2 total pages)

While on vacation this past week, I took the Revlon Expression Experiment trying makeup products and colors that I had never experienced before. Revlon is looking to inspire women and push them out of their comfort zone by actively engaging them in new expressions. The products that I had the opportunity to sample included:

For Nails:  Revlon ColorStay nail polish in an exciting blue color (Indigo Night) coupled with ColorStay top and base coats

Revlon Colorstay Indigo Blue Nail Polish

_______________

For Getting Photo Ready: Revlon PhotoReady Color Correcting Primer and the PhotoReady Eye Primer and Brightener Revlon Primer face and lip

______________________________

For Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick  in Certainly Red, ColorBurst Lip Butter in Cherry Tart (not shown), and ColorBurst Lipgloss in Fire.

 Revlon Color Stay lipstick and gloss

___________________

For Eyes:  16 Hour ColorStay in Bombshell and Inspired 4 Palette pack ColorStay 16 hour eye shadow

Check out my Video Review to See What I thought of each Product and Which is my Favorite! But more importantly see how I surprised myself by trying new makeup to enhance my looks.  Sometimes you have to Experiment!

I felt so empowered when I got done.  I had actually tried new shades and products of makeup.  We all get stuck in that makeup rut don’t we.  Just sticking with what we know…and not experimenting with new things.  What do you think, how did I do?  Which products do you think you might like to try?
