Can’t decide which sunblock you like best? Try ‘em all! Well…a nice assortment of them anyway. Sephora has created a Sun Safety Kit which gives you more choices than there are grains of sand on the beach. I exaggerate… mea culpa. The kit, chock full of travel sized essentials from some of our favorite companies is packaged in a waterproof travel pouch. And, while you’re protecting yourself from skin cancer sunshine, you’re helping others. 100% of the net proceeds of the $25.00 kit go to benefit the Skin Cancer Foundation.

From Rodial comes Boob Job which promises an 8.4% fuller bust in approximately two months. The company says that Boob Job works with your natural fat cells, and with regular application users will see a gradual increase in cup size as well as experiencing a lifting and firming effect. This is accomplished by the use of asian root extracts, myrrh extract and wheat proteins, but no hormones. Additionally, it contains peptides and antioxidants from pomegranates to protect the décolleté skin and keeps it young looking.
Personally, I’ve not been using Boob Job long enough to say yay or nay for increased size, however, I definitely do feel a skin firming effect and it does make the skin in my décolleté area feel very soft and hydrated, and the girls are certainly worthy at that!

A good nights sleep does wonders for our minds, and a good overnight cream does wonders for our skin. New from Orlane, is Crème de Nuit Reparative, a repair treatment that works while we dream and activates our DNA self-repair mechanisms to help erase signs of aging and keep our faces looking fresh. The list of ingredients is too long to name, but Orlane has put a lot of research into this product and so to name just a few….. soy and rice extracts to strengthen structure and improve elasticity, sea plankton extract for DNA repair and B21 plant based complex. The luscious white cream instantly emulsified and easily smoothed over my face and neck and made my skin feel velvety smooth. Additionally, essential oils such as neroli, lemon sage, ylang ylang and jasmine create a phytotherapeutic scent which soothes and calms.
