Five new—to me—beauty products I am liking

8

I’ve been using Dr Gross’s self-tanning cloths for the body on my legs for a while now and really like them—they’re so much lighter and easier to apply evenly to your skin than lotion. And now I’m also loving these tanning pads for the face for the same reason, and because they impart a natural and gradual glow.

This No Lipstick Lipstick from Perricone M.D. has an SPF of 15, and I like to bring it with me to the beach for a little added protection. The color I like best, Berry, is nice and sheer, like you just ate a cherry popsicle.

For sunscreen on my face I’m using this, which is nicely tinted and therefore a good stand-in for foundation on days that are too hot for foundation.

This body scrub smells awesome and really exfoliates.

I just gave myself a pedicure—something I never do because I’m so bad at painting my nails—using this Marc Jacobs polish, and now my toenails are the richest deep red.

    I cannot WAIT for a pedicure! With my back issues, it’s too hard to give myself one, so I’m doomed to wait until Phase 215….

    I’ve tried the Bum Bum cream but I am 100% addicted to their Brazilian 4Play Shower Cream. It smells SO GOOD and I look forward to it every time I shower.

    I’ve gone through a few containers of the bum bum cream -not sure I know what you mean by “does it work? ” It’s a fantastically scented, rich body cream and leaves a nice finish that’s not too sticky.

      Does it visually smooth out cellulite a little bit?

    Kim and Commenters,

    Do you use the bum Bum cream? I have been about to pull the trigger on it forever but want to make sure that a reputable source believes that it truly works.

      On my third container of the Bum Bum cream. While I think the scent is a bit much (I don’t love food smells in beauty products), the softening super-powers can not be denied. It’s been a huge part of my arsenal to ensure the skin on my hands doesn’t disintegrate.

        Thanks. I’m hoping the richness will smooth my skin out a little. I think I will try it and even if it doesn’t camouflage anything I won’t be all dried out.

    an FYI…the link to the body tanning goes to the Marc Jacobs nail polish––the face tanning link does go to the face tanning product.
