You can’t go wrong with these drugstore classics: Carmex, Sally Hansen, and Jergens

overwhelmedWalking into the drugstore these days can be overwhelming…the sheer volume of choices is enough to make you want to back out the door and put shopping for beauty products on your list for another day. For those times when you are in doubt, here are three classic drugstore lines with my favorite products that always perform.       samples3 Classic Drug Store Brands

1.  Sally Hansen Nail Polish:  this is such a great line for nail polish, especially for my addiction to nude-ish colors. The polish goes on so easily with the flat, wide brush – in fact, I do believe Sally Hansen polishes have my favorite applicator brush of all time. There is a huge selection of shades available.

Some of my favorite nude-ish shades include #325 Au Nature-al ($7.99), a classy perfect nude, and #161 Shell We Dance, a pretty light pink.

Carmex Classic Lip Balm Carmex Classic Lip Balm

Carmex Classic Lip Balm

2.  I love the Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Jar ($1.59) for preventing dry and flaky lips. The classic version comes in the familiar yellow jar and it has that scent that takes me way back every time I open it. Lip skin doesn’t have any sebaceous glands, which is why they need continual moisturizing. My only problem with my Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Jar is that my husband keeps stealing it, so now I always get two just in case. Carmex® Lip Balm can be found at retailers nationwide. For more information, please visit: www.mycarmex.com.Jergens Oil-Infused MoisturizerJergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

3.  Looking for an awesome body moisturizer?  You can’t go wrong with Jergens. Right now they have out their Oil-Infused Monoi and Coconut Moisturizers ($4.99 each) which have the classic Jergens® body lotion infused with luxe, skin-softening oils. They are lightweight but give heavy-duty hydration to skin, while also making it soft and luminous. And the scents are so pretty!Jergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

• Jergens® Oil-Infused Moisturizer With Nourishing Monoi: Harvested from the Tahitian Garden Flower and known for its intoxicating floral scent, Monoi Oil is a potent skin soother that’s been used by women for centuries. Combined with Jergens® deeply conditioning, protein-packed formula, it locks in moisture, smooths texture and tone, and leaves skin visibly radiant and softly scented.Jergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

• Jergens® Oil-Infused Moisturizer With Refreshing Coconut Oil: Fortified with the deeply penetrative, hydrating properties of premium Coconut Oil— along with its invigorating, tropical scent—this enriching body lotion gives your skin instant luminosity, a superbly soft texture, and long-lasting moisture for a gorgeous, all-day glow.

Jergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

Jergens Oil-Infused Moisturizer

You can find these new Jergens® Oil-Infused Moisturizers exclusively at Target stores nationwide.

Don’t let the huge variety of beauty products at the drugstore overwhelm you…stick with the basics and remember these classics.  – Lisa

Beauty items to stock up on! Bargains for Meijer Fall Beauty Week

L'Oreal Root Cover Up and Yes to Carrots Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion

I have been loving Facebook lately because of all the awesome ‘back to school’ photos. I don’t care how old you are, there is something magical about this time of year…new beginnings, new friends, and even better – new beauty products! Fall is the perfect time to finish up the products you got for summer and replenish your stash. I’ve partnered with Meijer in anticipation of their Fall Beauty Week that starts September 11th and here are four items to stock up on that are worth the extra closet and drawer space.

Dove Men CareDove Deep Moisture Hydrating Body Wash

1.Body wash. I’ve been using Dove Body Wash forever, so I am happy to see that these will be on sale at Meijer during Fall Beauty Week. If the men in your life are like mine, they resist body wash in favor of bar soap…but I think the Dove Clean Comfort will change their minds. This is an excellent multi-purpose soap that works for body and face, and it has a refreshing outdoorsy scent that isn’t overwhelming.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
2. Toothpaste. We all need toothpaste and there are so many options out there (and so many on sale next week!), but I hope you will try my favorite, Colgate Optic White Platinum. I am totally stocking up on this – I prefer a paste over a gel, and this one makes teeth visibly whiter in just three days.Yes to Carrots Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion

3.  Body lotion. Lotion is a year round must-have and I know I panic when I don’t have back up bottles. I am loving the Yes to Coconut Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion because it seems perfect in every sort of weather – it’s light, so it feels great even in hot and sticky weather. It’s super hydrating, so it’s perfect for dry winter skin.  t’s also so nice to have a spray lotion, which makes application easy and convenient. This was even a 2014 Allure Best of Beauty Winner.

L'Oreal Root Cover Up
4.  Root cover up. Gals who color their hair have a deep understanding of the nightmare that begins with the dreaded last spray of root cover up. I always have three bottles of this on hand…any less and I start to panic. The L’Oreal Root Cover Up is perfect for instantly touching up roots, and the money saved by stretching out time between hair appointments is incredible. Stock up while this is on sale!!

So many of my favorite items are on sale next week that I have a whole other post with skin care recommendations. These four items are the ones to buy multiples of for the upcoming winter – take advantage of the wonderful prices on these fantastic products during Fall Beauty Week at Meijer!  – Lisa

Cleansing with Éclair Naturals bath and body products

Eclair NaturalsIt’s not difficult to convince Lisa to try a new body care line, but Marcia? That’s a different story! Marcia is sooo picky when it comes to body care that it takes something extraordinary to entice her to take a chance.  Éclair Naturals intrigued both Lisa and Marcia with their natural food grade ingredients which include three powerhouses:                                         samples

Jojoba & Almond Oil

  • same molecular structure as human sebum (your skin’s natural oil)
  • penetrates skin and hair follicles to reduce water loss
  • reduces wrinkles/stretch marks, cleans clogged pores and restores skin’s natural PH balance

Pink Himalayan Salt and Dead Sea Salt

  • over 250 million years old
  • high concentration of key minerals such as magnesium, copper, calcium, sodium and potassium
  • critical to our skin’s metabolism

Pure Essential Oils and Natural Plant Extracts

  • contain the essence of the plant and all of its rejuvenation/resiliency characteristics
  • no phthalates like synthetic counterparts

With such great ingredients, testing this line was a no-brainer. The biggest challenge? Deciding which of the seven different scents to try.

LISA CHOSE CREAMY COCONUT:

Well of course I chose coconut! This is a scent for purists. No lime, no vanilla, no pikake…just deep, delicious coconut.  Yum.

Eclair Naturals All Over Lotion in Creamy Coconut

Eclair Naturals All Over Lotion in Creamy Coconut

Eclair Naturals All Over Lotion in Creamy Coconut

Éclair Naturals All Over Lotion in Creamy Coconut ($8.99)

This is a big tube of creamy, rich body lotion that is extremely moisturizing. The ingredients include shea butter and jojoba oil, which make this medium-weight lotion exactly what you want to reach for when skin is feeling super dry. I find that it is excellent for prolonging self tanners because it really locks in moisture and leaves skin ultra hydrated and satiny soft. Eclair Naturals Shower Gel in Creamy Coconut

Éclair Naturals Shower Gel in Creamy Coconut ($8.99)

This is a beautiful shower gel that lathers up beautifully and rinses clean but doesn’t strip skin. It’s also perfect for layering scent. I use it in the shower, then follow with the Creamy Coconut All Over Lotion for an even deeper coconut scent that stays with me all day.

Eclair Naturals Handcrafted Soap in Creamy CoconutEclair Naturals Handcrafted Soap in Creamy Coconut

Éclair Naturals Handcrafted Soap in Creamy Coconut ($4.99)

Such a beautiful, big bar of soap! The coconut scent is a little lighter than the shower gel and body lotion until you actually lather this up. The lather is incredible. I find myself spending a few extra minutes washing my hands just because it feels so good! This big bar lasts a long time and is pretty enough for any powder room.

MARCIA CHOSE VANILLA AND SWEET ORANGE:

Éclair Naturals Vanilla & Sweet Orange

Éclair Naturals Vanilla & Sweet Orange

When accepting Éclair Naturals products to test the first thing I noticed was their policies. Not only are they cruelty free but they made sure they were tested by Leaping Bunny to verify that status. Not every brand is accredited by Leaping Bunny because the tests are strident, but with Éclair Naturals passion for animals they were proud to add the expense of application. Being vegan they leave out ingredients that are less expensive in order to be PETA approved too. Their products are completely free of harmful products found in traditional body care, such as GMOs, parabens, and synthetic colors & fragrances. Plus, they are cruelty-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and vegan.

Éclair Naturals Shower Gel

I love the lather I’m getting from this Shower Gel. I feel like the fragrance is a cocktail where I’d first taste the sweet orange but the lingering sensation would be the vanilla. It’s a great combination for this shower gel. It doesn’t leave any soapy feeling behind, just a fresh clean feeling. The shower gel contains a blend of vegetable glycerin, aloe and Vitamin E. So while it’s gently cleansing the botanical extracts replenish essential nutrients.

One of the ingredients in the handcrafted soap is glycerin which forms the basis of the product. But this glycerin is from vegetable oil and not animal fat. Not all manufacturers use this type of glycerin in their bar soaps because it’s a more expensive ingredient and is normally reserved for more profitable products. The soap itself is very emollient so it’s a great hand soap for my guest bathroom. It’s nice to have a product in there that will not only look good but that will leave our hands moisturized and softly smelling like the vanilla and sweet orange fragrance.

Éclair Naturals Liquid Hand Soap

Éclair Naturals Liquid Hand Soap

Éclair Naturals Liquid Hand Soap

This is my most used and favorite product of the three. I am constantly washing my hands and I need something that is gentle because of that. Liquid Hand Soap has a nice rich lather but one that doesn’t strip my hands. Even in summer my hands can look dry but I haven’t really noticed that since I started using this soap. The fragrance is soft and non-lingering yet it makes my bathroom smell much more pleasant.

These products along with others in the Éclair Naturals line are all gently priced and can be found on their website. With 7 different fragrance collections (creamy coconut, grapefruit, french lavender, vanilla & sweet orange, shea butter & oatmeal, sea breeze, and Indonesian patchouli & sandalwood) there’s surely something for every member of your family.

Yummy body products from Ola Tropical Apothecary

Ola Tropical ApothecaryNothing says summer like coconut scented body products! Ola Tropical Apothecary, a wonderful boutique line from Hawaii, has everything needed to get your summer on. This is a very special line that has blown me away – the products are so good, you owe it to yourself to read on!!                   samples

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Sugar Polish

Summer skin needs to be soft, exfoliated skin – beware the poolside moment when you suddenly realize you are ashy. Ola Sugar Polish ($30 for 13 oz.) is a great way to gently exfoliate and hydrate your skin. Beautiful ingredients include pure Hawaiian cane sugar (and none of the guilt!!), organic Hawaiian honey, healing Hawaiian plant extracts, natural cleansers, Kukui nut, Macadamia nut, Cocoa and Organic Coconut oils. Ola Sugar Polish is a luxurious way to pamper your skin.

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Body Lotion

After polishing, you want to moisturize to seal in all that goodness. One option is the Ola Coconut Body Lotion ($29 for 8 oz). This is a soft, light cream that sinks in quickly and leaves behind a criminally delicious deep coconut scent. The ingredient list is incredible:  We blend Aloe Vera Juice and Coconut Creme with Avocado, Mango, Passion Fruit, Tamanu and Organic Virgin Coconut oils and locally harvested Macadamia and Kukui nut oils.  Infused with our unique synergetic healing blend of Organic and Wildcrafted Hawaiian Botanical Distillates (Hawaiian Purple Sweet Potato, Banana, Seaweeds, Aloe Vera, Sugar Cane, Bamboo, Ginger, Noni, Olena and Taro), to create a super hydrating and quickly absorbing formula to repair, replenish and heal your skin.

The Coconut Body Lotion is a little more expensive than others out there, but when you check out that ingredient list it’s no wonder why. Oh, and by the way — TOTALLY worth the extra expense.

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Body Butter

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Body Butter

If you want a moisturizer that is a little more rich, check out Ola’s Coconut Body Butter ($29 for 4.6 oz). I typically don’t go with heavier body moisturizers in the summer, but this is the lightest of body butters. It’s whipped into perfection and feels cool and soothing on the skin. It melts in immediately and smells so good…I can’t get enough of this stuff. I want to eat it with a spoon.

The body butter is a blend of Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Cocoa and Organic Mango Seed Butters.  Infused with our unique synergetic healing blend of Organic and Wildcrafted Hawaiian Botanical Distillates (Hawaiian Purple Sweet Potato, Banana, Seaweeds, Aloe Vera, Sugar Cane, Bamboo, Ginger, Noni, Olena and Taro), to create this creamy, luxurious formula that will repair, replenish and moisturize dry, thirsty skin.

All I can say is that I am head over heels in love with Ola’s Coconut Body Butter.

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Body Mist and Body Oil

I can’t get over the next two products, they are THAT good. I start with the Coconut Body Oil ($29). This is a fantastic and unique blend of tropical oils that soften, heal, and scent your skin.  Oils include pure organic coconut oil, organic avocado oil, Passion Fruit oil, and locally sourced Macadamia nut and Kukui nut oils. They leave skin satiny soft and glowy. This feels sooo good after swimming in the poor or lake.

I finish with the Body Mist ($22 for 4 oz) for perfect summer skin. This is no ordinary scented body mist….it has a secret ingredient, 100% Hawaiian Deep Sea Water. This water is found at 3000’ below the ocean surface off the Kona Coast and it “contains life’s most precious nutrients and minerals in nature’s perfect ionic and absorbable blend”.

The Hawaiian Deep Sea Mist has over 90 trace minerals, is high in calcium and magnesium, pathogen free and some of the cleanest and most nutritious water in the world. I keep it in my gym bag or my beach bag. Just knowing the goodness inside that bottle makes me feel refreshed and pampered.  Some of the other ingredients:

Infused with Aloe Vera Juice and our unique synergetic healing blend of Organic and Wildcrafted Hawaiian Botanical Distillates (Sugar Cane, Bamboo, Ginger, Noni, Olena and Taro), this formula has a naturally high alkaline ph which makes it exceptionally hydrating and nourishing for the skin, hair and face.

You can also mist your sheets, fabric couches, rugs, or the air to get some Hawaii into your space.

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Lip Renew

Finally, I have to give a shout out to the Coconut Lemongrass Organic Lip Moisturizer ($6). When you place an order, be sure to throw in one or two of these. I am a real lip balm snob and this is, by far, the BEST lip balm I have ever tried!! It hydrates lips like crazy, feels sooo good on, and tastes lightly coconutty.

Locally sourced tropical oils and butters are blended to provide long-lasting moisturizing benefits

Locally harvested Organic Beeswax is added to protect and seal in moisture

Flavors include Banana Honey, Coconut, Mango Passion Fruit, and Tropical Melody. I want one of each!

If you only splurge on one thing this summer, make it Ola Tropical Apothecary. This beautiful line has some of the best body products I’ve ever tested. Ola Tropical Apothecary products are available at better specialty stores, fine salons and spas nationwide or by visiting www.hawaiianbodyproducts.com.  – Lisa
