Beauty News: Soap and Glory & Palmer's

I find that the best time to shop for makeup is spring/summer.
Think about it- when you're going to a pool party what do you buy?
Nail polish- shaving supplies-sunscreen- DIY pedicure products
The list goes on and on.

Here are two products that may get you on the right path this summer.

This Skin Therapy Oil for Face is an age-defying, multipurpose skin perfecting oil.

Daily you battle environmental factors which take a toll on your skin.
What's the outcome?
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles 
  • Dark spots
  • Sagging skin 
  • Uneven skin tone
Palmer’s non-greasy, hypoallergenic facial treatment is formulated with all of the same great ingredients used in our best-selling Skin Therapy Oil but amped up with even more face-loving, anti-aging ingredients.
This product combines 11 different oils to keep your skin looking good while battling the elements. I prefer to use it right before I go to bed. Especially after a day after being in the sun.
 Why not wake up with soft skin?

It renovates rough feet in a single overnight session, doubles as a foot cream, and will give even the roughest of cuticles a run for its money. Featuring allantoin, glycerin, macadamia oil, menthol, bilberry, orange and lemon fruit acid smoothers.

Remember when I brought up the pool party?
 What if your friend decides to throw one the next day and you have no time do get a pedicure... 
What do you do? 

I had the opportunity to get some inside info from Marcia Kilgore of Soap & Glory to solve this dilemma.

Which Soap & Glory products would I use to get my feet spring/summer ready?
 Soap and Glory’s Heel Genius is both a moisturizing foot cream and mask that renovates rough feet in a single overnight session, especially if you wear socks after you apply to lock in the moisture.

It's that simple!

Which product do you want to try this Summer?

Take Care of your Skin + My Recommendations

Less than 6 weeks until the first day of Spring! I`m so excited. I have so many cute outfits that I can`t wait to wear. Looking outside is so depressing for a Summer baby like me. My skin hates the winter. It`s so hard to keep hydration. Thankfully, I have many products/tips to make my skin happy.
  • Water is your best friend! Drink a lot to keep your skin hydrated.
  • Take your showers in lukewarm water. If you're brave try cold water! Did you know that hot water can dry out your skin of its natural oils.
  • Best time to hydrate your skin is after the shower when your skin is damp. The product absorbs quickly.
  • Don't forget to exfoliate! It's not just your face that needs the TLC. It`s best way to remove dead skin.
  • Petroleum Jelly is your friend. It's the quickest way to moisturize problem places like elbows and knees.
Some of my current favourite products:

 Vaseline Total Moisture Collection
Pure exracts + multi-layer moisture complex in Strays-3TM infuse moisture at the top, core and deep down surface layers, for healthy-looking skin that’s soft but never greasy. This everyday lotion absorbs quickly and penetrates deeply, which both feels good on skin and does good for your skin.
 Satsuma Body Butter
This rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. It contains Community Fair Trade shea butter and smells of fresh satsuma. 24-hour hydration Great for normal to dry skin Fresh satsuma scent.

 Aveeno Baby Daily Lotion

Contains natural colloidal oatmeal blended with rich emollients to soothe and heal your baby's delicate, dry skin.
Scrub 'em and Leave 'em

With babassu oil, sea salt and moisturising jojoba and mandarin oils. Scented with our Mist You Madly™ fragrance.

Soap & Glory is now sold in Canada!

As a Canadian, its hard to get my hands on a lot of beauty/skin care products which are not sold here. I have a few alternatives:
  • Swap/get someone from another country to custom purchase it for me. 
  • Buy it on ebay/amazon.
  • Try to win it in a giveaway.
  • Buy it on vacation.
All valid things to do but it's so much easier to go to my mall and pick up what I need. If it becomes a holy grail item, its easier to have it on my finger tips then wait.

I read blogs from all around the world. I Remember four years ago reading about great products from Soap & Glory from UK bloggers. I wanted to try it from all the rave reviews. When they came to USA, I got a Custom purchase of The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser.
