Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm: Ultimate Hydration

 Affiliate Link Press Sample 


Do you sense a theme with my blog lately? I certainly do! Winter is the time of the year that I am constantly seeking out products to provide moisture and comfort for my Winter-dry skin.  

Kiehl's has a brand new product to help us maintain daily hydration for our skin: Introducing Kiehl's Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm. This innovative balm features the extract of one of the most resilient flowers on the planet, the Edelweiss flower. This flower shows remarkable resiliency in harsh climates.

Kiehl’s chemists combined the efficacy of Edelweiss Flower Extract with the Ultra Facial Collection’s iconic ingredients Antarcticine and Squalane to help store and retain skin’s moisture. This unique balm-textured formula is very successful at providing 24-hour daily hydration to dry and very dry skin immediately after application.


In addition to Edelweiss Flower Extract, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm also contains a blend of ingredients that bind water, help replenish skin barrier’s lipids and improve skin’s mechanical properties to leave dry and very dry skin looking softer, smoother, hydrated and healthy. Other key ingredients include: Antarcticine (glycoprotein protects skin and stimulated collagen and elastin), Squalane (a lipid derived from olives that is very similar to the natural lipids in our skin. It has emollient properties that help seal the skin to lock in moisture and increase hydration levels), and Glycerin (a humectant that provides lasting hydration and dryness reduction). 

Kiehl's actually tested this amazing new Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm in some pretty harsh conditions: during a week-long motorcycle ride in Alaska with Kiehl’s President, Chris Salgardo and extreme TV host, Grant Reynolds. Not only did this balm protect their skin from the harsh environment, but also they felt that their skin was healthier and softer after the trip than before they left!

Normally I do shy away from any product that is too rich or heavy for fear of breakouts. However, there certainly are times when I really want a heavier duty moisturizer for my skin. This will be a great addition to my skincare arsenal for those times. While we certainly do not have artic conditions here in GA, it does get cold and dry and my skin does need more help with moisture during this time of year. There is no question that this product helps my skin feel more hydrated and comfortable!

Does this sound like something that you need? Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm is now available on Kiehls.com and in Kiehl’s stores ($26.50).

Lavanila Vanilla Coconut Fragrance and Body Butter: What a Lovely Scent!

Affiliate Link  PressSample

Lets see...my favorite scents and food flavors? Vanilla and Coconut! These two things combined together into one fragrance? A dream come true! ;)


Seriously though, I am a huge lover of vanilla-based scents. Lavanila is one of my go-to lines when I am serching for a Vanilla fragrance. From Vanilla Summer (another fave), to Vanilla Lavender to their classic Vanilla and many more....they have a wide variety of Vanilla scents to choose from! Their Vanilla Coconut has to be my favorite of the entire line.


Typically I do think of Coconut as a Summer scent. I actually really look forward to my Spring to Summer fragrance rotation as I tend to whip out all of my coconut scented perfumes, creams, and fragrance mists. However, I am loving this scent for right now, in the middle of the Winter! I think the addition of Vanilla makes it Winter-appropriate. Plus, the Coconut can give you a mental vacation in the Winter. It can have you dreaming of tropical days and an Island escape! ;)

This exotic blend of young coconut, Tahitian tiare flower, and warm Madagascar vanilla is created by master natural perfumers who use only the finest pure essential oils. Carefree and tropical, escape to the island of healthy delights.

I am loving this scent in both the The Healthy Fragrance and The Healthy Body Butter. The fragrance is in a formula with sugar-based alcohol mixed with pure essential oils and antioxidants. The Healthy Body Butter is 100% Shea and Cocoa Butters mixed with essential oils and antioxidants for rich hydration and nourishment.

If you are looking for a gorgeous scent to give you a mental vacation from Winter, be sure to check out LaVanila's Vanilla Coconut!

NEW Glycolic-Infused Skincare from Pixi Beauty: Get Glowing!

Affiliate Link Press Sample 

Get Glowing with Pixi's Glycolic-Infused "Glow" line expansions:
I have long been a fan of Pixi's cult-classic Glow Tonic. Well, exciting news: Pixi has expanded their Glow line to include a variety of exciting new products! Introducing Pixi's new Glycolic-infused Glow Mud Cleanser, Glow Mud Mask, Glow Peel Pads, and Overnight Glow Serum!


Glow Mud Cleanser:
This pore-purifying cleanser is a gentle exfoliant and cleanser in one. It is an excellent start to your skincare routine and it can give a "boost" to the other products in the Glow line by Pixi. It is actually quite gentle on my skin. It contains 5% Glycolic acid (to exfoliate), Mud (deep cleans and detoxifies pores), hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and avacado (to plump and nourish your skin). Retails for $24.

Glow Peel Pads:
I am kinda obsessed with peel pads. They are one of my biggest skincare "secrets" for clear skin! I like to use a peel pad about 2 times a week to resurface my skin and keep breakouts away. Whenever I explore a line, I always want to check out their peel pads right away! So, when I found out Pixi now had peel pads, I just had to try them!!! These peel pads contain Pixi's highest concentration of Glycolic acid. They are a powerhouse treatment that helps refine your pores and skin texture. Now, I do have sensitive skin. However, I can still use these with no problems. I just can only use them about 2 times a week. You do feel a slight tingle after you apply them. However, it is not that uncomfortable. To use, you simply swipe them on your face (after cleansing and patting dry) and leave on. After about 2 minutes, rinse off. I follow this with a heavy-duty moisturizer (and no treatment products). These Glow Peel pads give me the most deep-down clean feeling. I just LOVE these!!!

Glow Mud Mask:
I adore skincare masks. I honestly look forward to my home "spa" nights. I try to do a mask at least 1-2 times a week to keep my skin clear and refreshed. This 15-minute facial absorbs oil, draws out impurities, and fights breakouts. The mask contains kaolin and sea salt (to purify skin) and ginseng and aloe vera (to balance skin). I apply after cleansing and leave on 15 minutes. Then I rinse off with tepid water. My skin is left so soft and baby smooth after I use this! I feel that consistent use has helped keep breakouts at bay.

Overnight Glow Serum:
This Overnight Glow Serum works while you sleep! I just love the idea of applying something before bed that will do the work for you overnight. This soothing serum works to smooth fine lines and texure to leave you with smooth glowing skin. This serum contains 10% Glycolic acid, Vitamin A, Cucumber, and Aloe Vera.


I am really loving the Glow line from Pixi! There are so many options for adding Glycolic Acid into your skincare routine. The trick for me is that I can't use all of these products at the same time (that would be too much for my sensitive skin). However, I can pick and choose the items that I am in the mood for or that will work for my skin on that particular day. So, a combination of the cleanser and the Peel Pads, etc. I am loving the results and feel that these products to keep my skin more clear and glowing!

Have you seen or tried these products yet? I would love to hear your thoughts!
