Neil Morris Fragrance in Zephyr

Neil Morris Fragrance in Zephyr

Not only is the name incredibly inspiring – but even at my first whiff I became a believer in Neil Morris and his fragrance creating abilities. Zephyr is a breezy floral with peppy citrus notes that I ended up wearing every day happily. Zephyr begins with Top Notes of Tangerine and Papaya that combine with lovely Heart Notes of Honeysuckle and Casablanca Lily. This combination was bracing and uplifting at the same time. This opening is tempered with the White Tea notes (which I am personally a big fan of). I had so many wonderful experiences wearing Zephyr, and numerous compliments. The dry down is a like a warm, comforting breeze on a beautiful day with Sandalwood, Amber and Ocean Musk. This scent is perfect for day time, church or brunch with friends. The lasting power is very good. On most days I only reapplied once in the evening if I was going out. I especially liked taking mine with me on several trips as it was a great pick-me-up and made me feel fresh and “new” when I landed. What a beautiful, unique creation! I can’t wait to try more Morris fragrances.

For 20 years, Ellen Sirot’s ageless hands have earned her worldwide acclaim as the “supermodel of hands.” Her hands have appeared in countless advertising campaigns, every major fashion and beauty magazine and worked with the world’s top photographers. Now thanks to the new hand care line she has created, Ellen Sirot HAND PERFECTION, any one of us can have amazing skin on our hands too! From the first drop of Hand Perfection that I applied, my hands became noticeably softer and moisturized. The lotion is white and a medium weight - a cross between a cream and a lotion. The lotion had the perfect amount of slip, felt lightweight on my hands and had a very faint scent, where I picked up some evening primrose oil fragrance. The cream is also very concentrated, so I literally only needed the pea sized amount that it suggests on the tube directions. It provided a beautiful sheen to my hands (not greasy) and sank in within a minute or two. After using daily for several weeks, I noticed that the overall tone of my skin improved, some discolorations were lightening, my nails and cuticles had never looked better and they were always soft and smooth - even after washing! Ellen Sirot certainly knows what she is doing. This is a fantastic product, and the Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection Night Cream, which I used in conjunction with this, just made my hands look amazing. The only improvement I could see with the day cream would be the addition of an 30+ SPF which would help in the maintaining of the skin brightening and anti-aging effects. The purse size (about 4"in long) was a perfect size and also has a secure flip top dispenser.

The eye cream comes in a small tube with a unique pen applicator which allowed me to apply the precise amount of product on the under eye area (not much is needed). It was extremely hydrating, soft, silky and absorbed quickly. I had great results applying my concealer over this cream. After daily use, my eye area indeed looked much fresher and smoother. I would often apply a little at night and noticed in the AM my puffiness/darker circles were much less noticeable.

It's not often that I rave about a nail polish remover, but it seems that time has come! Celebrity manicurist Bernadette Thompson has a line of nail colors and nail products under the Bernadette Thompson name. The star of the line, however, is this remover, Wipe Out. I have never used a nail polish remover which moisturizes and conditions my nails and cuticles SO well, and still manages to get every last trace of polish off in an instant! Wipe Out is a unique deep orange shade and has no horrible harsh smell (I still smelled chemicals, but it was an improvement over most removers). I was very impressed that it didn't dry out my nails and skin like many nail removers I've used in the past (even the ones which bill themselves as moisturizing!). It left made my cuticles soft and smooth and my nail beds were glossy and hydrated. This is a bi-phase formula and as per the instructions, I made sure to first shake it well to mix the moisturizing oils and the actual remover together. I have natural nails, but Bernadette was smart enough to create a formula which not only works amazingly well with natural nails, but also for artificial nails as well! If you think that all polish removers are the same, try Wipe Out and you will surely change you mind.

I've been in a bit of a body moisturizer rut lately, so this came at the perfect time for me. I wanted a great feeling, great smelling, light but super moisturizing product - that also has SPF for at least moderate daily outdoor exposure. Body Double, from new Australian skincare line Hissyfit, hit the mark in all the categories above for me. I loved the creamy, silky light texture of the lotion and the fragrance is really nice! It's a little sweet/a little tart - (think a Creamsicle) from the blend of Vanilla, Almond, Orange and Grapefruit extracts it contains. After applying 1x day after a shower my skin was noticeably softer and smoother, but without a trace of greasiness. The lotion absorbed quickly but had a nice "moist" effect that I liked. I was left with a subtle sheen on my skin and with regular use I could tell that my skin was really supple throughout the day. It's a nice size for travel and I found it was very concentrated to a few pumps went a long way to make it budget friendly as well

I know I like the taste of cucumbers, but some of the cucumber scented beauty products that I've smelled over the years just didn't capture that essence for me, so I put the concept of cucumber fragrances in the back of my mind. That is until now. I recently had the opportunity to try the limited edition Marc Jacobs Splash - Cucumber . I was so amazed at how fresh, clean and crisp it smelled - and actually reminded me of how I feel when I eat cucumbers (it's not an exact copy - but rather a really smart and modern scent influenced by the essence of Cucumber). The top notes are very light and refreshing - a watery cucumber and linden flower are what jumped out on my skin first. I got grassy notes as well which were subtle and blended well with the cucumber and flower notes. Perfect for warm spring and summer days. The dry down creates a very pretty, light woodiness which was not powdery or overbearing. It was uplifting and yet comforting at the same time. Since it's splash, this is not a very long lasting scent, but I found that it was great to apply in the morning, the afternoon for a pick up if I was able, and at the end of the day. It's so delightful I loved applying it anyway! If you are looking for something refreshing that is not a citrus or a fruity floral this is perfect. This can be worn on all occasions and will be just the scent you want when it gets super hot this summer and your sweeter, heavier perfumes get stifling. Another plus - the bottle is large enough that you can use it daily and really have it around for a long time. I used it 2-3 times a day for weeks and still have a large amount left in the bottle. You can also use this during the day by decanting some from the large bottle into an atomizer. Since this is a limited edition, I suggest getting a bottle (or two) for the soon-to-be-here warmer days ahead or for your tropical get aways!

Some more worthy of mention than others- and this powder blush, housed in the cap LID of Clinique Quick Blush is one of them. This was so perfect for all the on the go moments on my life. The blush and brush are inside of a chubby silver cylinder. I just twisted the cyliner to allow the brush to reach the powder blush inside the cap on the other end. The color, Pronto Pink, is a medium rose pink (cool) with light shimmer. It gave me a beautiful healthy flush. The staying power was good, and I generally added a little in the evening if I was going out for a little more pop. This is a very pretty, uncomplicated pink that many women can wear, and would work best up to a Kerry Washington shade. The brush itself is very soft but firm, and deposited the perfect amount on color on the brush - amazing! The Quick Blush tube is the perfect size and very lightweight. The pretty shade and wonderful application method make this one of my favorite new items for the spring, and will be perfect for summer get-aways!

For a convenient way to touch up discoloration, blemishes and under eye circles, nothing beats Bobbi's new Face Touch Up Stick! This concealer is in a small twist up stick which I would apply directly if I was on the go, or with the touch up brush by Bobbi Brown. The stick offers medium coverage and the texture is extremely creamy and hydrating. I used this in the Honey shade and it was a perfect match. It was easy to blend and had great lasting power. If I was able to apply power to set, I got great coverage throughout the day. On the go without powder, I certainly got staying power for 4-5 hours. There was no slipping, flaking or melting. This is the perfect product to use for those of you that just have small spot coverage needs for general daily use. Perfect for travel and throwing into your bag because of the size. I love it and will always have one of these with me.

This serum, part of Carol's Daughter's "Bring in the Moisture" new skin care line, is really a wonderul combination of hydrating, fragrant oils which I loved applying and was extremely effective at moisturizing my skin. I used as directed, after cleansing my face, adding a few drops (just 2 or 3 drop are all that's needed for the face) in my hands, rubbing them together and then applying to my face in a circular motion. I concentrated on my cheeks, forehead and outer eye area where I have the most dryness and fine lines. Please note: because of the types of oils contained within the serum (Essential Oils of Ylang-Ylang, Carrot Seed, Patchouli, Calendula, Peppermint, Rosemary and Fennel), it is very fragrant . I happen to enjoy scented products and this one is lovely, but if you are extremely sensitive to smells this may not work for you. After just the application of the serum my skin's appearance improved. The drier areas were hydrated without any heavy or greasy feel or appearance, and it worked well with a light layer of moisturizer over it for particularly cold/dry days. I used this day and night for several weeks and loved not only how great my skin looked, but really appreciated all the natural oils that it contains. I was a little worried that the oils would cause issues with my makeup application or staying power, but in fact it made the makeup even easier to apply and my skin stayed hydrated all day, so my foundation/powder in particular, remained in tact as well. This is a wonderful product for drier skins and I can't wait to see what the rest of the Bring in the Moisture Collection has in store.

Olay had made great strides in really listening to the needs of women of all ages and skin types in their various lines over the years. Olay Professional Pro-X is their highest end line available in drugstores and like many of you, I wondered if this product line would make sense in that environment and of course if the results would be worth the price tag. After using this treatment daily for over a month, I can honestly say yes to both of these concerns. The Olay Professional Pro-X Discoloration Fighting Concentrate is a slim tube with a needle point applicator, which made it easy to target the exact spots and locations on my face where I needed to lighted my spots. That made it easy to pack for travel as well. It is white, lightweight and silky and sank in easily. There was no discernible scent. I applied it in the morning and evening after cleansing (using SPF in the daytime additionally). After only a week I could definitely see a difference in the color of my spots. The formula didn't dry out or irritate my skin in those areas, as a matter of fact, it hydrated my skin very nicely. After two more weeks, several of the darker areas had completely disappeared, and one particularly troublesome area improved by 50-60%. I was extremely pleased with this product. As with any discoloration product, you do have to continue to use it on a regular basis to keep up the results, but this product has made me a believer, so that won't be a problem.

It's meant to look like a prescription product, and in fact, Lumecin did pack a powerful punch to produce a significant change in my skin. I had never heard of this product before, but after doing some research, I found out that quite a few of my fellow beauty lovers use this a part of their skin care regimin, and now I see why! I used this treatment as directed after cleansing at night. I applied a dime's worth on my skin. It felt extremely light and was smooth to the touch, although visually it looks a bit like Prep H (don't be scared!). It was so light in fact, that I at first doubted what it could do. That is until the morning after using it for 2 consecutive nights. My skin had an unbelievable glow and the texture was so soft. Every morning after I used it I woke to skin that just looked healthy and alive. It was so easy to just dab a bit of concealer and eye makeup and head out the door I felt so confident about my skin. As directed, I used this every night for about 2 weeks, and then went to 3x week. I didn't experience any irritation or flaking. During the day I used a lotion with spf to help keep my hyperpigmentation at bay, and combined with this treatment at night, I also saw a significant improvment/lightening of my tiny dark spots left from some previous breakouts. What a fantastic discovery that I suspect you won't be dissapointed by either!

This scent started out SO bright and fresh and clean, with the Mandarin and Bergamot the most prominent notes on me. It then enveloped me to the point that it made me feel completely uplifted and happy! Next the sweeter, softer more velvety notes like Jasmin Tea, Plum Blossom and Cherry Blossom came up on my skin, which didn't diminish the first set of notes (this is a very common thread in all of his fragrances - they shift and change but one layer of notes does not necessarily "push to the side" new ones). The final composition of the scent really brought out the woody Orris and Oud notes on my skin which were warm, sweet and very sophisticated. This is a scent for a women who is sure of herself, loves something different and can appreciate the Story that Neil is telling with this creation. Because this a streamlined "lighter" scent, on drier skin like mine, I did need an extra spritz or two throughout the day to continue the staying power, but on more oily skins this will certainly last longer. Neil decided to keep his traditional, classic bottle for this fragrance, and it goes a long way to this working for men/women, as all of his fragrances are designed for. .
