Crabtree & Evelyn’s Avocado, Olive and Basil Body and Hand Care collection launches this month. It’s a delicious scent of avocado, olive blossom, basil, sage with hints of lemon. I’ve been testing the Shower Gel, Body Lotion and Hand Therapy for a few weeks and find it to be so refreshing. The smell is crisp and clean. I used the Bath & Shower Gel as bubble bath a few times, and it made my entire bathroom smell like a Mediterranean spa. The scent is also man-approved. While the lotion may be too fragrant for the dudes, he will reach for the shower gel in the shower. Guaranteed.
As with all Crabtree & Evelyn collections, I tend to favor the Hand Therapy. This now lives at my desk at work, and I use it constantly. With avocado butter, shea butter, macadamia nut and olive oils, I can’t not obsessively slather it all over my hands!
A virtual book club is so our speed, which is why we think that StriVectin’s Facebook Book Club is a fantastic idea. This month they’re reading Anna David’s “Falling for Me.” Every other month, the group will start a new book, and the first 50 people to sign-up will receive a free copy. Check it out on StriVectin’s Facebook page.
One of the best things we read all week….beauty products the Refinery29 editors swear by. [Refinery29]
Next month, look out for China Glaze ElectroPop for Spring 2012. This is a girly, edgy and fun collection. And that glitter confetti topcoat, called “Techno,” looks very promising.
I’ve been waiting for NARS to introduce a tinted moisturizer for about 18 months when I first heard rumblings of one. And, it’s almost here. On February 1, NARS Pure Radiance Tinted Moisturizer will launch at Nordstrom. SAVE THE DATE! [Women’s Wear Daily]
Marchesa always has some of the best red carpet moments (can’t wait for the Globes!), so the latest Beauty.com/Marchesa collab is quite fitting. Love the bow, the lace AND the samples: Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint, Boscia blotting linens and Amika Obliphica Oil Treatment. Yours with any $150 Beauty.com purchase.
Food or skin care? Crabtree & Evelyn’s newly announced Avocado, Olive & Basil Collection sounds yummy and delicious…and moisturizing! Launching February 15.
