Wearing jewelry is one of the most effective ways to express yourself and create your own unique sense of style.  You can take an ordinary pair of jeans with a plain white tee shirt and instantly transform a basic look into a high end fashion forward look.  Whether you choose to add big, bold classic jewelry accessories to your outfit, or perhaps some bohemian style jewelry pieces, you can add that element of couture or carefree effervescence that will define who you are without saying a word.

So it is with such enthusiasm that I introduce a very talented jewelry designer who creates some of the most fascinating jewelry designs that are sure to add some spice and excitement to your fashion sense of style.  Bella deLuna Designs is a collection of jewelry and art inspired by fairytales, books and pure imagination!  Let me introduce Bella deLuna Designs to you and the lovely woman behind these magical designs:

“And just like a midsummer nights breeze, she ran away, into the moonlight, a fox, proud and strong. The lone wolf walked away, saddened she was gone.” ― Jason Winchester

This stunning bracelet features a brass cuff with an etched floral design. Layered on top and secured with rivets are brass filigree and a beautiful brass stamping featuring three foxes. Bracelet is adjustable, just gently squeeze the ends of the bracelet to make it smaller, and gently pull the ends apart slowly to make it larger. Bracelet can have closure chains added for a more secure fit if you have a smaller wrist.

This bracelet comes beautifully gift boxed for giving. Bella deLuna Designs takes pride in shipping your items to you and every care will be taken to ensure prompt and delivery and a beautifully wrapped item.


Receiving a piece of jewelry from Bella deLuna Designs is a very memorable experience.  My splendid bracelet arrived perfectly packaged in a lovely gift box.  The bracelet was wrapped in cheerful tissue paper and lovingly placed in a light blue organza gift bag which was then housed in the gift box so as to ensure that it arrived to me safely.  What an outstanding first impression, very classy and 5-stars!

It is easy to see that the bracelet has been meticulously crafted.  The brass materials are very durable and the bracelet is a solid piece, not flimsy by any means.  The Foxheart design is so sleek and distinctive, and I love the inspiration behind it, a very alluring tale.

It does not matter what size wrist you have, this bracelet is going to fit you.  The opening of the bracelet is wide, so  you can easily slip your wrist into it and adjust it to how you feel it best feels on your arm and to make sure it feel comfortable as you wear it.

I think the brass material of the bracelet makes this so versatile!  You can mix it with your silver or gold jewelry and it is going to blend in beautifully.  You can wear this cuff style bracelet with everything from your most casual of outfits to your dressier clothes.  It is a couture style cuff bracelet that is going to add that element of mystique and allure to all your looks.  I have already had several compliments on the bracelet, just wearing it once, and I know it has captured the eye of those around me.  It is that one of a kind piece that people notice.

A handmade piece like this is dramatic and different, and that is what makes it so appealing to me.  I strive to wear clothes and accessories that stand out from the ordinary and that I know no one else that I know is probably going to be wearing.  I enjoy wearing pieces of art, and that is precisely what this bracelet is, a piece of wearable art.  A piece of jewelry that the creator put a lot of thought and inspiration into, and now I get a chance to add my take to it by pairing it with clothes and other accessories that I feel will portray my own unique vision.  A collision of creative minds so to speak.

My final note:  The Foxheart bracelet is rendered in very fine quality and materials.  It is going to be a bracelet that I am going to wear for years to come, an heirloom quality piece.  I know I am going to experience so many enjoyable moments with this on my wrist, in all its classic glory.  I cannot express enough how thrilled I am with all the detailed design elements it possesses and the expert craftsmanship it took to create it.

This concludes my review.

We are into week 3 of consistent temperatures that have been 20 degrees or less and this frigid weather is making my skin dry and itchy as can be!  As the cold weather wreaks havoc on my skin, I can see the signs of aging lurking around more and more with each passing day.  I feel the need to arm my skin with the protection that it needs and deserves in order to fight back with Mother Nature.  I work hard to keep my skin looking and actually being healthy, and I am not going to let a few months of treacherous cold weather ruin all my hard work.  To the rescue, your ammunition for winning the war against Winter is Phyto-C Superheal O-Live Cream, no license required!

Today it is -8 {yes minus 8 degrees} outside and because I applied some Phyto-C Superheal O-Live Cream on my skin before I ventured outside to shovel, my skin is happy as can be, soft and dewy, moist and hydrated and best of all, looking nourished and youthful!  Before I delve into my review, let me intoduce the Phyto-C brand to you:

{Adapted from the Phyto-C Website}

Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and the first part of you that touches the rest of the world. And so, it’s both your touchstone and your first defense. Phyto-C understands the importance of your skin, and we know you need to care for your skin as well as you would any other part of your body. 

The founders of Phyto-C are scientists who understand the role your skin plays in your overall health and well-being. With funding from the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health, our discoveries have made great strides in new treatments for skin disorders and skin cancer. These new discoveries have such wide-ranging applications that we have developed a full repertoire of skin care products based upon them.

In Phyto-C’s effort to bring healthful solutions to the first place we touch—our skin—we continue to research and develop new formulations derived from natural ingredients, formulations based on sound scientific evidence.


I received a large full size, 50 g,  jar of Phyto-C's Superheal O-Live Cream.  I knew the moment I twisted off the cap of the jar that this was no ordinary face cream.  The color alone, the medium brown shade of it, immediately gave me the impression that this was something special, something natural and safe for my skin, that it was going to love!  And, my initial impression did not disappoint, this cream is glorious!  Here are the details about it:

Price:  $125


Bring the wisdom of ancient Egyptian remedies to the forefront of modern-day science with Superheal™ O-Live, an extract purified from the olive leaf of Olea Europaea. Olive Leaf Extract Patent # US 6,743,449 B2 

The nourishing O-Live Cream is created with multi-vitamin and centella extract to reinforce natural skin hydration. The light-weight formula soothes and calms itchy skin, reducing adverse skin reactions, dryness, irritation and redness.

SUPERHEAL™ O-Live formula combines the effects of Vitamin C, E, A and olive leaf extract, and actively promotes cell absorption to achieve the maximum healing and antioxidizing effect. It effectively protects skin from UV damage, smoothes fine wrinkles and stimulates the production of collagen. 

Available online via


This rich, creamy, luxurious cream is everything you dream of in a face cream and so much more!  It was created for all skin types and is a powerful anti-inflammatory intensive moisturizer that is going to provide your skin with all the nutrients and antioxidants that it needs to get you through the winter months.  If you have skin issues, like psoriasis, it is going to heal those skin issues, it is that effective!

I have been faithfully applying it to my clean skin twice daily.  It is a very lightweight cream that glides effortlessly over the skin leaving it feeling ultra hydrated and soothed.  

These are a few of the benefits of using this outstanding cream:

  • Provides extraordinary anti-inflammatory and anti-virus properties
  • Reinforces natural skin hydration and reduces dryness, irritations and redness
  • Relieves the symptoms of psoriasis, soothes and calms itchy skin
  • Enhances the skin immune system and restores skin’s vitality 
I apply about a dime size amount of the cream over my entire face and neck, wait about 30 seconds and all the product is absorbed into my skin and any signs of dryness and redness that has developed from the weather is gone.  I give this cream my highest recommendation.  It has worked wonders on my skin.

The active ingredients in this product are SUPERHEALTM O-Live Leaf Extract, Vitamin B5, Centella Asiatica Extract, Aloe Vera and Green Tea Extract.  It gives me great peace of mind knowing that the ingredients that are being absorbed into my skin are natural, healing, safe and beneficial to my skin and body.  I cannot say the same for every face cream out there I have used.  That is another reason I rate this product as being so exceptional and extraordinary.

This concludes my review.

It is such a pleasure to introduce Montana Silversmiths to you.  If you are drawn to the vibe of the American West, then you will want to read on.  To me, the American West represents a lifestyle that is relaxed and carefree, where people work hard, and then enjoy the fruits of their hard work by making the most of the outdoor beauty that surrounds them.  Montana Silversmiths creates jewelry and accessories that enable you to bring some of that western charm and charisma into your life with expertly crafted jewelry and accessories that are classic, timeless and heirloom quality.  Let me briefly introduce this fascinating company to you:

{Adapted from the Montana Silversmiths Website}

The Silver Story

Silver has long been synonymous with the American West. A tradition forged in the early days of prospecting and the silver claims that created fortunes. This heritage is honored each and every day at Montana Silversmiths® in the Montana-made western buckles and jewelry crafted by our skilled engravers.

For nearly 40 years, Montana Silversmiths is focused on producing and offering products of exceptional value. Nestled in the tiny hamlet of Columbus, MT, we've grown to become the largest supplier of western jewelry, watches, home d├ęcor, and legendary buckles to the industry. Handcrafted silver, rich in western heritage, is the very core of Montana Silversmiths. Our skilled craftsmen are the finest in the western industry, crafting products that are a combination of traditional western designs, unique modern flair, crisply executed engraving styles unmatched in their brilliance, and a keen attention to detail.

Montana Silver products are touched by as many as twenty-five caring sets of hands before they are packaged in blue velvet boxes for presentation. The quality we achieve by such careful workmanship is one reason our products are known as compliment makers and desirable gift items for individuals and loved ones.


I was given the opportunity to select a jewelry set of my choice.  Let me say, it was a fun task, but not an easy one!  Montana Silversmiths offers pages of truly remarkable and beautiful jewelry sets, it was difficult to pick just one!  I must have browsed through the wide variety of jewelry sets several times before I narrowed it down to the one to review.  And, I am in love, LOVE with the set I selected.  Here are the details about it:

Item # (JS1057)
Price:  $58


The outside trim and post of this horseshoe design is antiqued and shaped into a twisted rope design, with the length of the horseshoe studded with clear rhinestones for a beautiful finish. The stud earrings hang comfortably and securely, while the drop necklace features a larger version of the bejeweled silver horseshoe. This sparkly horseshoe design outlined with a twisted rope, antiqued and intricately carved is a beautiful focal point for any ensemble.


All jewelry has a warranty on manufacturing defects when accompanied by a receipt. See our warranty policy for details.


You can maintain your silver brilliance with an occasional wipe of a damp cloth. DO NOT use chemical or abrasive cleaners.


I tried to get a good closeup of this stunning set, but my camera just does not do any kind of macro photography....... so with words I will share my excitement about this glorious pair of earrings and matching necklace. 

The delightful horseshoe design jewelry set arrived packaged in a sleek and elegant blue velvet box.  The inside of the box is lined with white satin with the Montana Silversmiths logo prominently centered inside the box.  This was such an long lasting positive first impression.  I knew something special was contained inside this classy box.

The jewelry set is a bit larger than I had initially imagined in my head.  This is a good thing!  It made the entire design of the set so eye catching and impressive.  There is so much attention to detail in the horseshoe design, the "door knocker" element to the style, the array of clear rhinestones to add some bling to the pieces and the designer look of the rope design all work perfectly together to make this one fabulous set!

For everyday wear I enjoy wearing post earrings, but with my long hair I also want them to stand out.  These earrings offer both; the post style with a touch of dangle.  They are truly a most enchanting pair of earrings, and the horseshoe design is very chic right now!

I really like that the necklace is adjustable!  You can adjust it to a length that works best with what you are wearing.  I tend to like my necklaces close to my neck, a 16 inch length, but you can easily make this up to an 18 inch length.  That makes this so versatile.

The fine craftsmanship is very apparent when you feast your eyes on this magnificent set.  The look and feel is first class quality and I am an immediate fan of this wonderful brand.  I only wish I had discovered the meticulous quality of the jewelry before the holidays!  I am going to be a long time customer of Montana Silversmiths for all my gift giving needs.  Whether you embrace the western style on a regular basis, or just appreciate the hip and cool look of it, Montana Silversmiths has created something special that will capture your attention and win over your heart.  

This concludes my review.

REVIEW: Polygel GELUXURY Repair & Rejuvenate Slippers

Are your feet feeling dry, itchy, sore and achy?  If you said yes, and I am sure this time of year you can attest to feeling at least one of these, then I have the ideal solution for you!  There is nothing more satisfying than slipping your feet into a soft, cozy, warm pair of luxurious comfortable slippers.  And, what if I could kick things up a notch and say a soft, cozy, warm, comfortable AND repairing pair of slippers?!  Yes, a pair of innovative Geluxury Slippers that have a unique SmartGel Technology in them that actually repair and rejuvenate your feet while you wear them.  I hope I have your attention, so please read on to learn more about these Geluxury Slippers that are infused with 7 botanical oils and ceramides, dermatologist tested Smartgel, formulated to restore, repair and rejuvenate distressed skin on the feet.  Before I delve into my review, let me briefly introduce the Geluxury brand to you:

{Adapted from the Geluxury Website}

For 20 years, PolyGel has been the leader in cutting edge, gel-based technology. Based in Whippany, NJ, our privately held company utilizes the best and most advanced technologies available to deliver unrivaled products that enhance the lives, well-being, and happiness of our customers.

Committed to improving the quality and cost-efficiency of orthopedics and skin care, PolyGel works closely with clinicians to ensure our products meet the most discerning demands and needs of patients. Today, PolyGel has expanded beyond clinical referrals to place its moisture-infused, anti-aging SmartGel-based skin care products directly into the hands of the consumer.


You have no idea what sad shape my feet were in.  Dry, flaking, scaling, honestly, they kind of grossed me out!  I was almost embarrassed to look at my own feet.  Seriously.  I have been so busy working, taking care of things around the house and family, dealing with the holidays, then winter, you know how it goes.  And, with what I depend on most to get me around, my feet, I had lost touch with, ignored, forgotten about and from the looks of them, they knew it.  These Geluxury gel lined moisturing slippers are not only darling, but as soft as can be, and after one time of using them, your feet will be soft as can be.  Learn how:

Available in Sizes: S, M, L, XL
Color/Patterns:  Leopard or Cuddle Cow


Allow your feet to become smoother, softer, and younger looking with this deep-hydrating skin treatment.

With regular use, our treatment slippers help repair your entire foot:

  • Cracked heels
  • Calluses
  • Dry, tough skin
  • Damaged cuticles 


Our patent-pending SmartGel lining is:

  • Infused with 7 Therapeutic Botanicals and Ceramides
  • Solid-textured and non-greasy with no clean up required
  • Enriched with Aloe Vera, Green tea, and Willow.
  • Built to last for hundreds of treatments
  • Dermatologist tested 


I received these ultra pampering Geluxury Slippers in the stylish leopard print.  At first glance, I could see that they were no ordinary pair of velveteen slippers, no sir.  I knew I was about to experience something extraordinary.  And that indeed I did!  The are very durable and made of the finest quality.  One look at the tops and bottoms of the slippers and you can see they are made to wear and enjoyed wherever you are.  Whether you are kicking back on the sofa, or making dinner in the kitchen, you can sit and stand in these slippers and they will work their magic on your feet.

You can also feel confident that they will stand the test of time if you bring them to work with you.  Imagine a no mess, no fuss way to give your feet instant gratification while you are working.  Where them for 20-30 minutes or wear them for hours, whatever your pleasure is, one thing is for sure, your feet are going to be better for it!

All you have to do to experience the ultimate in luxurious hydration is to wash your feet and dry them thoroughly.  Gently put on the slippers and wear them for about 20-30 minutes.  Do this 2-3 times per week and you are on your way to beautiful soft, restored, repaired and rejuvenated feet!

You can wear these slippers more if you want, but it is suggested that you allow your feet to breathe, so take them off for at least 3-4 hours daily to allow for that.  These Geluxury Slippers provide their maximum hydration benefits during the first 50 treatments.  They may be used with moisturizing cream for a more intensive treatment.  Oh, and please note, that these slippers are designed for indoor use only!

I have not had to clean these slippers as of yet, but they are very easy to care for.  Just turn the slippers inside out and wipe them with a warm, damp cloth.  Do not use bleach, don't machine wash them or put them in the dryer.  Just air dry them before you reuse them.  You can sprinkle the gel with talcum powder to retain the smooth feel of the gel, as needed.  Store the slippers in a cool, dry place when not in use.

It is just as easy to wear and care for these divine Geluxury Slippers as it is for any regular pair of shoes or slippers.  The only difference is, you put them on when your feet are clean and dry, and of course, without socks of any kind.  I have been wearing mine around the house for an hour or so at a time.  They are so comfortable, I don't want to take them off, but at the same time I want to get the most out of each treatment so I don't want to overuse them on any given day.

Keep these glorious slippers in mind for not only yourself, but for all your family and friends!  Imagine how thrilled they will be to be able to experience the same benefits and at home spa like treatments that you are too!  You can even wear them together while spending time with one another.  I highly recommend these for any gift giving occasion.

This concludes my review.

As my Winter Beauty Essentials series of reviews continues, I want to introduce you to another exceptional brand of skincare.  Scalisi Skincare, where Science Never Felt So Good!  If you are not familiar with this brand, you are in for a real treat, the brand is outstanding!  I say this because Scalisi Skincare products prevents and repairs wrinkles by drawing from the best of Science, Beauty and Organic.  That caught my attention and I think once you discover more about the brand, it will capture your attention too!  Let me briefly introduce Scalisi Skincare to you:

{Adapted from the Scalisi Skincare Website}

Jill Scalisi spent 20 years working on Wall Street. Then in 2008, she was diagnosed with skin cancer. Unable to find healthy, proven, anti-aging products with SPF 30, she partnered with top chemists and leaders in manufacturing and packaging to establish a new category in skincare. When it comes to anti-aging, Scalisi Skincare combines the best of science and beauty to create reparative and preventative products that are so beautiful women want to use them every single day. 


I received a couple of Scalisi Skincare's top performing products to review.  I begin my review process with an open mind, and I don't let fancy packaging or hype about a brand or product influence my first impressions or my opinion about the products for review.  I have learned through experience to remain neutral and unaffected by any factors until I have the chance to test the products out firsthand.  So, when I do comment about how sensational a product is, or how extraordinary a brand is, I say it because I believe it to be true.  And, that is precisely what I am saying about the Scalisi Skincare brand, definitely stands out from the ordinary!  I am totally loving these two products:

Price:  $25


Daily "mini facial" for soft glowing skin. This daily two-in-one cleanser and exfoliator cleanses the skin without stripping and gently exfoliates dead surface cells using tiny micro-beads which allows new cells to come to the surface.


Smart, Savvy and Simple.  We've done the homework so you do not have to.  Advanced technology that feels like silk.  You will look forward to using this product everyday.  The Scalisi Skincare Cleanser and Exfoliator, formulated for all skin types, cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates all day.

- Time released vitamins A, C, and E nourish and help provide antioxidant protection

- Jojoba, Macadamia Nut and Sunflower Oils moisturize

- Paraben free


This glorious cleanser and exfoliator gently removes dull surface cells while hydrating the skin.  Over time it helps to revitalize, protect and maintain the skin.  I have been using it for over a week now in the morning and the evening.  It is so easy to use, just massage a nickel size amount on wet skin using circular motions. Rinse with warm water and voila, your skin will immediately feel like baby soft skin, so smooth and renewed!

There is a very soft, fresh fragrance to the product.  It is pleasant.  The consistency of the product is a gel with tiny exfoliating beads that you can feel and you massage the product into your skin.  These beads are extremely gentle on the skin, and you can feel them working their magic on your skin.  You only need a small amount of the product and it goes a long way.  When you rinse your face with warm water you will immediately feel the difference in the texture of your skin from before you used the product.  That is why I think this product is so amazing.  My skin is a perfect canvas with which to use to apply my moisturizing products onto and then my makeup.  You will fall in love with this splendid cleanser and exfoliator just as I have.

Next up is the:

EYE CREAM, .5 oz.
Price:  $55


This delicate eye cream absorbs quickly to melt away the visible signs of crows feet and fine lines, while combating the look of under eye puffiness.


The Scalisi Skincare Eye Cream utilizes similar peptide technology as the Anti-Aging Moisturizer and adds additional peptides that break the bonds between the dead skin cells to speed cell renewal.

- Refines skin texture and reduces wrinkle depth.

- Contains ash bark tree extract to reduce the look of puffiness under the eyes

- 45% reduction in the appearance of wrinkles in 8 weeks.

- Does not irritate the eyes

- Feels very light in texture and has a hint of a clean scent

- No Retinol. Paraben free. 


This intense eye cream effectively helps to protect and treat the most fragile part of the face, the area surrounding your eyes.  In a moment's time, you can begin the transformation process by simply applying a small amount of the product under and to the sides of your eyes. Then inn the evening apply all around the eyes.  I have been using this excellent product for over a week now, and I am already noticing improvement in the area around my eyes, skin appears smoother and the fine lines are less visible.

The product is very lightweight, the consistency of a cream without the thick feeling when you apply it.  It absorbs completely into your skin instantly and there is absolutely no greasy feeling when you touch your skin once the product is applied.  There is no discernible fragrance to it, which I prefer.  A truly delightful eye cream, I am just thrilled and so pleased with it.

This concludes my review.

REVIEW: emerginC Scientific Organics Skincare

Winter is here to stay for a while so you might as well arm yourself with essential beauty products to keep your skin healthy and hydrated all season long.  As part of my Winter Beauty Guide, I want to introduce you to a couple of sensational products from emerginC that are surely going to pamper your skin from head to toe with the gentle TLC that it deserves.  If you are not familiar with the emerginC brand, let me briefly introduce you to it:

ABOUT emerginC
{Adapted from the emerginC Website}

emerginC started with a single product, our now classic vitamin C serum, out of a studio apartment in Manhattan. Now, with over 70 products in our arsenal (and 15 countries on board), the emerginC signature range and 100% natural, minimum 70% organic emerginC scientific organics range are selected by many of THE top spas and hotels worldwide, Hollywood A-list celebrities, and those looking for a real improvement in the way their skin looks and feels. We offer active, cutting-edge formulations that deliver results for all skin types, from breakouts to aging skin and everything in between. We don't use parabens, synthetic fragrances or synthetic colors in any of our formulations and try to source naturally and responsibly wherever possible (including the incorporation of fair trade ingredients).

Additionally, emerginC is an industry-leader in environmental initiatives, from our ground-breaking "buy one, plant one" tree-planting program, our emerginCeeds and emerginBees programs, to our paper and packaging sourcing. We manufacture most of our items with wind power and even harvest our own organic vegetables and fresh eggs from the chickens on the roof at our headquarters in Brooklyn! Beyond all this, we are always seeking the latest breakthroughs in skin care to ensure that our formulations deliver the real results you deserve.

Discover emerginC for yourself and see what all the buzz is about. You won't be disappointed. 


I received two excellent products from emerginC to review both from the Scientific Organics Collection. The Scientific Organics collection from emerginC is paraben-free, petro-chemical free, synthetic fragrance- free, with a minimum of 70% organic ingredients in every item.  I have been reviewing skincare products for so long now, that I am able to instantly sense whether a product is going to be a keeper or not.  Usually one or two days of using a product I can tell if my skin is loving or not so much loving the product.  I always give a product the benefit of the doubt and use it for 2-3 weeks before giving up, but if my skin is responding positively to a product in just a few days, I know it is a product I will use to the end.  I am so happy to report that the two products from emerginC I was sent to review are totally awesome products!  I am super psyched about them and so much so I want to share with you all about them.  So here it goes:

Price:  $45


emerginC, a leading professional skincare line, introduces an addition to the 100% natural, 70% organic Scientific Organics collection. The Grape Stem Cell, White Tea + Seaweed Body Butter nourishes and softens the skin to combat roughness, even skin tone and fight the appearance of aging skin. This fresh-citrus-scented nourishing total body cream contains grape stem cells, spirulina, algae, green and white teas, shea butter, jojoba seed oil, vitamins A, C and E, palmariapalmata, pine bark extract and more to nourish, soothe and soften the skin.  Ideal for all skin types.


Delivers anti-aging and toning effects to the body. Hydrates, and softens skin.


The Scientific Organics collection from emerginC is paraben-free, petro-chemical free, synthetic fragrance- free, with a minimum of 70% organic ingredients in every item. 

For every Scientific Organics product sold, emerginC will plant a tree. 

Plant-It 2020, a non-profit foundation founded by singer John Denver in 1992, and the Dollar-Per-Tree Planting program plant indigenous trees throughout non-harvest locations around the world. For every dollar donated a tree is planted. 

NEW emerginCeeds Initiative: In addition, with every emerginC/Scientific Organics product purchased, consumers will receive a packet of USDA organic mixed lettuce and arugla seeds, to start their own vegetable garden.


Dare to Bare Skin indeed!  This is the ultimate in a luxurious body butter! It is thick and rich and glides on so silky smooth onto your skin.  My skin just soaks it right in, as if it were just given a thirst quenching glass of water.  My skin instantly appears to come alive again, no more scaling or flaky skin for me!  I think this is one of the finest body butters I have used.  It does not leave a greasy feeling on my skin, just a luminous glow.  And the light citrus fragrance is invigorating and refreshing to inhale.  I highly recommend this body butter for soothing your dry winter skin.

I have been using this wonder cream morning and night on freshly cleansed skin.  I really like that it has no apparent scent.  It is a thick and rich cream, yet it feels very lightweight on the skin.  It is the perfect balance of moisture that my skin seems to need this time of year without leaving my skin feeling greasy.  I can tell that my skin is responding positively to it because it soaks the cream right in and leaves me with the perfect canvas to apply my makeup on.  I feel a sense of confidence in knowing that there are natural, nourishing ingredients in this cream that are healthy for my skin.  In one easy step I can transform my skin back on track to looking radiant and more youthful in appearance with improved texture and tone.  I think this cream is a real keeper!
