Modern Friction for the Body from Origins

This body scrub from Origins has a funny name: Modern Friction for the Body. I really don’t know why the company has chosen this name instead of simply call it a scrub. Anyway, although it has a pompous name, it works like a regular body scrub: eliminates dead cells, diminishes discolorations or signs caused by sun exposure. It has a very refreshing smell, a combination of bergamot and lemon.

Two Steps for a Younger Looking Skin

Ultra Lift Pro-X Double Action Eye Care from Garnier is a double ended pen with an anti-wrinkle cream at one end and an eye contour gel on the other.

The cream: it contains a dermo-reconstructive molecule called Pro-Xylane that is said to diminish wrinkles.

The gel: is a combination of Indian chestnut extract and other ingredients. It should be used in case you have bags or dark circles.

I don’t have wrinkles - yet!- but since I has a teen I had problems with dark circles – I wear glasses. I’ll try the gel to see if it’s working and give my mom the other tube.

My anti-frizz miracle

My hair always has a bad case of the frizzies. In my travels, I have found a product that is able to tame my mane for most of the day. Organix Coconut Milk Serum provides a great shine and makes my hair feel great and nourished. Designed for anti-breakage, if you aren't a fan of Coconut, Organix also makes a similar product in Shea Butter. I tend to put in on right after I get out of the shower, but you can apply in when your hair is dry or right before your going to apply heat to help prevent damage.

It is well known that acids from fruits fight against ageing.

It promises to reveal a radiant complexion, and that’s why I dream of.

Summer Must Have Hair Product

I recommend using Le Cheveu After-Sun Radiance Mask from Carita every time you go to a tropical country or to the beach. It’s also good to use even if you go to a covered pool. This moisturizing mask protects your hair against damages caused by UV rays, chlorine or salt and repairs damaged caused by these factors.

Get your own custom made lotion

This past weekend, I was delighted to find a shop that made custom lotions and soap. The Home Bottega has opened their 1st retail shop in Montclair, NJ but has been in existence for 4 years providing these custom-made products online. Their lotion starts off as an unscented base made from a mix of cocoa & shea butters and other treats. Then you can add vitamin supplements and essential oils in addition to the particular scent that you are looking for. May I recommend the Coconut Lime. It is outrageously delicious and will last for hours.

White List Cosmetics: Elancyl Toning Foaming Exfoliant

Still annoyed by that irritating cellulite? First of all, I have to tell you that there’s no miraculous cream that can get rid you of this problem. But you can meliorate it. Of course, to get rid of it, I recommend sport and…a good scrubbing every week. A good scrub not only that removes dead cells, but also stimulates blood circulation.
