Simple Sugars Rose Body Scrub

Simple Sugars recently sent over a package of goodies for me to try, and boy am I glad they did! I received the Rose Body Scrub and the Green Tea Facial Scrub – both smell amazing!

It was hard to choose a favorite, but I really enjoyed the Rose Body Scrub the most. It smells like sweet roses and is the prettiest shade of blush. Simple Sugar products contain natural sugar and oils that help smooth rough skin. This scrub left my skin baby soft after my shower.

The Green Tea Facial scrub was also very nice. It smells so fresh – just like a shot of wheatgrass juice! Since it’s oil based, I would only recommend it for those with dry skin. It was too oily for my face so I used it as a body scrub and it worked perfectly.

I’m so happy I got to try Simple Sugars; the company’s creator and founder, Lani Lazzari was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank and since then Simple Sugars has increased it’s retail presence and will (hopefully) soon be offered in more stores across the country.

FHI Heat Styling Iron

Style your hair with ease with FHI Heat! Their 1″ Black Diamond Digital Hand Touch Ceramic Professional Hair Styling Iron lets you create effortless curls and waves or use it for a sleek straight look. It quickly heats up as soon as you pick it up and it’s easy color coded temperature display lets you know it’s ready for use with just a glance.

Coarse, Thick Hair – Red Zone 410°F – 450°F (210°C – 232°C)

With a simple twist of the wrist, I was able to get gorgeous curly ends with straight roots. It glided smoothly through my hair with even heat throughout. It took my about 30 minutes to style my hair and during that time the iron stayed consistent and evenly heated – no creases and no hot spots. I also loved the heat resistant mat and carrying case that came with it.

Michael Kors is set to release his new beauty line which will be sold exclusively at Macy’s. The line is divided into three styles – Sporty, Sexy, and Glam. According to Kors, his grandmother and mother were both inspirations for the line. He also says that women feel differently about themselves on a daily basis, sometimes we feel sexy and sometimes we feel sporty. The new collection enhances all these different styles.

The Michale Kors beauty line will feature an array of bath, body, and makeup products. Each style will have it’s own fragrance, lotion, and matching bath product, as well as two lipsticks, lip gloss, and nail polish. I can’t wait to get my hands on the Glam collection! The line is backed by the Estée Lauder Group, I suppose the holiday Estée Lauder x Michael Kors offer served almost like a test drive of what was to come. Are you excited about the new launch?

This year I think I might indulge in an oxygen facial  or maybe even a lymphatic massage. Oxygen facials are supposed to do wonders for your skin – just the wake up call my face needs after this long and cold winter season. A lymphatic massage is a technique used to drain your lymph nodes. This helps the body get rid of unwanted toxins and excess fluid.
