My Favorite Things – Lotions, Potions and Oils

I promised to occasionally write about the stuff that I love, here are a few of my favorite lotions, potions and oils…

Life-flo Magnesium Lotionlfg-magnesiumlotion

I wrote some time ago about how Magnesium oils and lotions have changed my body for the better. I use a Magnesium oil daily for health reasons but when I need better rest and less body aches at night I turn to Life-flo Magnesium Lotion. It has a nice concentration of Zechstein Magnesium, a delicious vanilla scent, coconut oil, shea butter and more. Put it on your sore neck or back or muscles of any kind nightly to help relax those aches and pains while you sleep.

Mode de Vie Karite Lips Lip Balm

karitelipsI used to find reapplying Lip Balm to keep my lips hydrated a real hassle. Then years ago I finally found my solution, Mode de Vie Karite Lips Vanilla Lip Balm. A truly long-lasting lip balm made from Shea Butter; it protects and hydrates like no other product I’ve come across. I literally find myself putting it on only twice a day and have true effectiveness from it. It comes in other scents too if you’re not a vanilla fan. Make sure you find this brand, I’ve accidentally ordered shea butter lip balm from other companies and not had nearly as good success with them!

Neocutis Lumiere Eye Cream

neocutis eye creamAs an Esthetician I have tried TONS of eye creams in my time. Where no eye cream is going to solve major under eye issues, Neocutis Lumiere Eye Cream will definitely make an impact on the minor issues. Designed with an excellent growth factor (aka stem cell) built into it, you will see improvements in tightening and hydration very quickly with this product. It is BY FAR the best selling eye cream out of my office, definitely give it a whirl soon! Please note that we sell this cheaper in our office than even on the website.

Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment

I have crazy fine, thin hair that is IMPOSSIBLE to grow out. Until I met one of my moraccanoilgreatest hair loves… Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment. A little bit of this keeps my hair tame and hydrated and was truly the first product to ever help me grow my hair long! There are knock off versions of this that are not nearly as good, they tend to just make your hair greasy looking. It’s worth the money to buy the original and it takes me months to go through a bottle of it.

Tea Tree Oil

tea tree oil

My very fair skinned family is prone to skin irritation. It’s truly a pain to fight some of these ailments and I don’t always want to throw cortisone creams on them because they thin the skin over time. My favorite solution is Tea Tree Oil! My daughter has big, itchy reactions to mosquito bites and of all the remedies out there, she swears that Tea Tree Oil works the best. When purchasing this product I highly recommend investing in a quality essential oil, the cheap ones don’t seem to work as well. So give it a try to help with your next skin ailment and let me know what you think!

SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic Antioxidant Serumceferulic

If I do nothing else on a lazy morning, I always throw on my SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic (we sell this cheaper in the office than on this site, stop in and get it with us) and sunscreen. This product prevents age spots, protects you from free radical damage and stops the clock on your aging face. A few glorious drops a day is all it takes! I choose it over many other Vitamin C products on the market because of it’s stability and penetration in the skin. There’s no product that works better!

Nivea Smooth Sensation Body Lotion

smooth-sensationWe get a TON of free lotion samples in the office on a regular basis, some of them are even gigantic bottles! Even though that is the case I’m constantly finding myself back at the store purchasing Nivea Smooth Sensation Body Lotion. It absorbs well, hydrates all day and doesn’t leave an annoying residue on my skin. I only need to use it once a day to keep my skin soft and supple. Next time you’re scouring the shelves for a body lotion, give this one a try!

Younique Cream Eye Shadowscream eyeshadow

If you love a shimmer on your lid but don’t like the creasy lines that develop with use of them, Younique Cream Eyeshadows are your solution. They flow on with ease and stay place all day. With a wide variety of color choices, you’ll find something that works for you. For stay-put eyes try their Eyeliner as well, the combination can’t be beat!

CND Solar Oil

cnd solar oilI unfortunately inherited the dry hands and cracked cuticles of my grandmother. In the dead of winter my saving grace on my cuticles is CND Solar Oil. An awesome blend of Jojoba oil and Vitamin E, with nightly use of this product you can prevent the cracking of your cuticles AND the cracking of your nails even. It takes just a few seconds to whisk it on and can make a huge difference in your nails!

Arbonne Awaken Sea Salt ScrubAwaken

For all of you who come in and complain about dry, scaly winter skin, I highly recommend that you try Arbonne’s Awaken Sea Salt Scrub. Avocado and Safflower seed oil combine with real sea salt to give you the best combination of hydration and exfoliation. Additionally, it gives you something to order from that sweet friend who sells the product! I’ve tried a ton of exfoliants for my body but I keep coming back to this one because it’s truly the best. Fall and winter are coming, I’ll be buying mine soon!
