A Lovely You – Makeup Tips for Every Woman

Archive for the ‘Bath and Body’ Category

While browsing the “Just Arrived” products section on Sephora, I came across the latest Philosophy offerings: the Caribbean Getaway Duo and the Hawaiian Getaway Duo. I want!!!

The Caribbean Getaway duo smells like “tropical colada,” and includes a 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath and a lotion (both 8 oz sizes.) Meanwhile, the Hawaiian Getaway duo includes 8 oz sizes of lotion and 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath and smells like pineapple coconut. YUM! Plus, the packaging on these is super cute; they’re in little boxes that look like mini suitcases.

I think these duos are the perfect way to get in a summer state of mind, and I hope they’ll be gracing my shower caddy in the near future.

Price: $25/each

Availability: Sephora.com

I live in a climate that is primarily warm and sunny nearly year round. As such, it’s almost always sandal season here and my feet need to be in tip top shape! I wanted to try Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Foot Cream because it’s fairly inexpensive, and I had heard good things about it. I can tell you now, I was NOT disappointed!

First Impressions

When I first used this foot cream, the scent took me by surprise a littleĀ  bit. It’s not unpleasant, but it does have a much stronger scent than I thought it would – almost like a man’s cologne. I also noticed that the cream instantly soaked into my dry, rough feet and provided immediate relief, which was a definite plus. This foot cream also claims that it will last over 17 hours, and while I didn’t count how many hours my feet felt moisturized, I will say that I put it on in the morning and it lasted well into the evening. I didn’t even have to reapply!

Overall Rating

Overall, I would definitely give Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Foot Cream 5 out of 5 stars. Compared to all of the foot creams I’ve used over the years, this one takes the cake. It’s smooth and non-greasy, absorbs instantly while providing immediate relief, and lasts for hours. If you are in the market for a new foot cream, I definitely recommend you give Neutrogena’s a try!

($4.39, Drugstores)


I’m a huge fan of LUSH, and their recent limited edition launch is just too darn cute! Their Shark Fin Soap is chock full of good-for-your-skin ingredients like seaweed, zesty lime oil and sea salt and offers and incredibly cooling and refreshing sensation. I use it after a swim for its superb skin softening benefits – it’s also an invigorating way to wake up in the morning, too!

If that’s not enough, 100% of the proceeds from Shark Fin Soap will go to Shark Savers, a non-profit dedicated to the conservation of sharks. How’s that for a pretty sweet deal?

The soap costs $5.95 for a 3.5 oz bar, so what are you waiting for? Purchase one today, and you can feel good knowing the money you spent will be going towards a good cause.

Stay Lovely!
