New Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Lip Balm and Eye Mask


I've just come back from a week long camping trip along the American River (near Sacramento) with around seventy-five 4th graders! It's been both exhausting and gratifying. The weather up there was very cold and rainy so I was really thankful I had the new Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm ($24) with me constantly in my pocket.

This super moisturizing balm is made with Blue Lotus Essential Wax that makes lips smooth and so soft. No lip flaking at all! I love the soft rose sent and how it plumps up my lips too. I'm

Volaire Hair Volumizing System


Since my last post earlier this year about Volaire's Air Magic Texturizing Spray, I've been able to try the entire hair line by Volaire!

Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation SPF 30


I’m all about letting my skin breathe and looking natural which is why I am really loving the Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($60 at Sephora). They recently upped their shade game to five. I have it in the shade light. The coverage is sheer and it feels really light on the skin, just the way I like it. I love that it immediately starts to even out my skin tone. It also blends in amazingly well. I use my Dior foundation brush but you can even just use fingers as the formula is wonderfully water-based.

Dior Rouge Dior Couture Lipstick Refill Set: Get It Before It’s Gone!


One of my favorite Christmas presents I received is this Dior Rouge Dior Couture Lipstick Refill Set ($160 at Bloomingdales). I'm a huge lipstick lover and this one features six beautiful Dior lipsticks that you can refill into one Precious Rocks carnage band design lipstick holder. My husband got this for me sent from so it was wrapped so beautifully in their large Dior box and signature folded tissue paper.

What I loved the most about this set was the case featuring the modern Dior logo that you see on the bags currently
