Just when you thought you’d seen it all, the ever-popular alphabet beauty trend shows no signs of stopping! Nearly all of our favorite makeup and skincare brands have jumped on the BB bandwagon, but few have expanded into developing BB creams that aren’t just for your face! That is, until Jergens’ latest moisturizer! After all, with spring around the corner and miniskirt weather not too far away on the horizon, skin-perfecting from head-to-toe is essential for prepping for the stylish, sunny days ahead! Available in two different shades (light-medium skin tones, and medium-deep skin tones), Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream boasts 5 skin-boosting perks: it hydrates, illuminates skin with a subtle sheen, evens redness and discoloration, firms, and corrects tone while blurring the appearance of imperfections. It goes on sheer and dries quickly, improving skin with each use while also creating the immediate appearance of a more perfect complexion. And at only $12 a bottle, you’ll be ready for shorts season in no time!

Say Goodbye to Sunburn Sorrows with Coola After-Sun Lotion

No matter how badly you covet a natural-looking tan this summer, we can all agree that too much sun exposure is a bad, bad thing. But try as you might to slather on that SPF 50 and stay covered and protected whenever you step outside for extended periods of time in the next few months, let’s face it – you’re not a hermit, and you’re likely to catch some rays as you enjoy the summer weather, for better or worse. After all, accidents happen, and I know from experience what it’s like to fall asleep by the pool and come home with an atrocious sun burn… so what about damage control when the sun has already taken its toll? Coola Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion to the rescue! This ultra-moisturizing, soothing after-sun cream is infused with Agave to provide sunburn relief and protect angry skin from future damage. Lavender oil also helps heal and calm skin that’s been over-exposed to the sun, while Rosemary extract tones and firms up skin by reducing excess oil. Of course, here’s to hoping you won’t need to do any post-burn damage control this summer, but just in case – Coola’s got you covered!

We are in the middle of Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, and attention all shoe addicts! Unless you’re a nonfiction version of Carrie Bradshaw, chances are your legs and feet aren’t immune to wearing heels running around Lincoln Center and to fashion shows all around town. After all, beauty is pain, and whether you’re a girl who practically lives in heels or just grins and bears it for the occasional dressy night out, you’ve likely experienced your share of shoe-induced discomfort. But that doesn’t mean you should sit there and take it! Let’s face it – your feet deserve a little pampering time, so introduce yourself to H. Gillerman Organics Muscle Remedy. The brand’s roll-on formula infuses a natural blend of olive oil, lavender, sage, spearmint, and vitamin E to relax muscles in your legs and feet, soothing tension and reducing pain. Plus, its refreshingly spicy scent doesn’t hurt either while you unwind after a long day on the go! Of course, it would be extra nice to have your own personal Mr. Big to massage your feet while you test out the relaxation properties of this handy little must-have product, but hey – a girl can’t be too greedy!

Get a Head Start on Your Spring Break Glow With a Luminizing Body Lotion

As much as some of us would like to, we can’t all be blessed with a tan year-round – and it isn’t necessarily always in season to rock a just-back-from-the-beach glow. But that shouldn’t discourage you from benefitting from the more natural options of beautifying your complexion! Cop a spring version of the perfect faux glow in the most flattering way possible, with a luminizing body lotion. Unlike self-tanners, it won’t leave you streaky, discolored or unseasonably orange, and there’s no need for any tricky trial-and-error to find your ideal skin tone match. Luminizers work for all skin tones and types, moisturizing skin while leaving just the slightest shimmery sheen that will catch the light in all the right places, making you appear just a tad bit slimmer and bringing out the best of your natural tone without tampering with it. You’ll get a more natural-looking spring glow that camouflages skin imperfections and leaves you naturally radiant!

Kiehl’s Continues to Give Back With Another Collabo with Jeff Koons!

Kiehl’s may not deliver the most bargain-friendly bath and body goodies around, but it’s comforting for us shopping addicts to know that our hard-earned money is not only going towards quality skin care and beauty, but also to a good cause to boot! The 160-year-old, New-York-based apothecary brand is no stranger to giving back, and their renewed partnership with Jeff Koons kicked off the recent holiday season with another limited-edition Creme de Corps collection – this time inspired by the artists’ legendary “Balloon Flower (Yellow)” sculpture. While the holiday season is well over by now (*sigh of relief*), luckily it’s not too late to take part in the charitable cheer! Ranging in price from $29-72, plus a collectible bottle topper inspired by the original sculpture for $50, this collection donates 100% of its net proceeds (up to $200,000) to The Koons Family Institute, a branch of the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children. Plus, considering Creme de Corps has been lauded as the most hydrating of Kiehl’s extensive collection of moisturizers, it’s the perfect purchase to help you beat brittle winter skin!

Skin-Soothing After-Shave Lotions… For Ladies!

While actual aftershave might sound like more of a guy necessity, men aren’t the only ones who need a little post-shaving TLC. We gals are no strangers to the perils of shaving ourselves — nicks, cuts, razor burn, ingrown hairs (ouch!), unsightly red bumps (in the most inconvenient places, of course), and dry flakey skin from razor-happy showers. Especially in the summer months, when the desire to wear short shorts and miniskirts leads to the need for clean-shaven legs nearly always (’cause let’s face it, we can’t hide beneath maxi dresses every day), shaving can really take a toll on sensitive skin… and even on the toughest, most tolerant skin too, for that matter! Fear not, lady shavers! For where regular moisturizing lotions may drop the ball, these specially-formulated post-shaving products are here to provide that aforementioned TLC to razor-abused skin! With ultra-nourishing properties like vitamins A, E, and C, essential oils to replenish dull, dry skin, and anti-inflammatory, antiseptic ingredients like soothing rose extract, these after-razor lotions will help you get that smooth, supple shave you want without the painful side effects!

Smoothie-Themed Bath Products: Berry Good For Your Skin!

Not many things are more refreshing than an ice-cold smoothie on a hot summer day… and not many products are more nourishing for your dry, sun-damaged skin than berry smoothie bath products! Before you envision a Glee-inspired nightmare like a bright blue raspberry slushie thrown at your face, hear me out! Berry-infused, smoothie-like bath products are great for the skin and for your well-being! Not only do they boast revitalizing, skin-boosting properties like vitamins and fruit enzymes that promote cellular renewal for more lustrous, healthy skin, but they also help you relax after a long day after work or a hot afternoon out in the sun. Indulge with an everyday moisture-rich lotion infused with berry scents like Beauty Rush Juiced Berry Lotion from Victoria’s Secret, or H2O Sweet Berry Body Balm with real fruit enzymes. To make the most of your shower, pamper with Lush’s Dreamwash Smoothie calming soap, which soothes with aloe vera and is gentle enough for sensitive skin, or work up a lather in the bath with Ulta’s Shower Smoothies cleanser in Berrylicious!

Beat the heat with a refreshing pineapple-scented beverage.. for the bath!

Add some nourishing vitamins, natural exfoliators, and soothing properties like aloe and vetivert, and you’ve got yourself your new go-to summer beauty product. Turn your shower into a tropical escape with a natural pineapple-infused natural soap, soothe sunburned skin with a pineapple-scented body balm, or slough away dry, dead skin with an invigorating, body-brightening scrub.

Citrus-Scented Pampering with Grapefruit-Infused Bath Products!

  • posted June 1st, 2011
  • Beauty

Other than sunscreen and salty beach air, nothing smells quite like summer than light, refreshing, citrusy scents. True, the last thing you want to do in the sweltering weather is lounge in a bath for hours, but that’s no reason to skimp on pampering, and grapefruit bath products are on our radar to let you lather in a way that will leave you feeling clean and refreshed, even if you’re keeping your shower short, sweet, and on especially hot days, lukewarm. Think of grapefruit as a sophisticated step up from the summer lemonade stands of your youth — it’s still sweet, punchy and summery, but with a bittersweet kick that keeps it wearable as a fragrance and not too sugary-sweet to lather up or lotion with. Plus, grapefruit itself has plenty of skin-boosting properties, from revitalizing vitamin C, moisturizing fatty acids, and toning oils. Whether you’re in it for its skin-smoothing abilities or just the summery aromatherapy, grapefruit will have you feeling refreshed and revitalized, no matter how hot the day!

Knead Some Life Back Into Dry, Thirsty Knees!

Summer weather means lots of things — beach days, outdoor concerts, vacations, sunburns, swimsuits, etc. — but in the wardrobe world it most notably means leg-baring miniskirts, dresses, and shorts. Of course, with warm-weather clothing also comes the added responsibility of maintaining smooth, moisturized, fuzz-free skin, but with the pressure to constantly shave (not to mention the damaging, parching affects of the sun while you frolic bare-legged outdoors), flake-prone dry areas like your knees suffer the consequences. Balance the torture of shaving by replenishing skin’s moisture with a heavy-duty skin-quenching lotion geared specifically towards troublesome rough patches like knees, elbows, and the soles of feet. Fight back against dry, flaky, rough skin and protect your knees from future damage, both from the sun and your razor, and show off smooth, silky legs without having to be self-conscious of unsightly rough patches!
