Le Mieux Face & Eye Masks

 Probably  don't need to tell you that the holidays are coming and winter along with it. The furnaces are coming on one by one and with that  is dry, itchy flaky skin. The drier your skin, the more those little lines and wrinkles show :( Not too many of us can afford a day at the spa, but LeMieux Cosmetics have the next best thing..a moisture mask for the face, and firming mask for the eyes.
The Moisture Infusion face mask , is the coolest thing. And I mean that literally. Peel off the top layer of the sheet/mask and press onto your face and leave it there for about 15-20 mins. It has a lovely cooling sensation. It is also loaded with peptides, Vitamin C and botanical extracts. Just like a spa treatment ! I suggest you do this on a snow your robe & slippers, hair up in a towel and with soothing music & a cup of tea.
The Firming Eye Mask is another treat, with potent peptides to tighten and firm  the skin around the eye. Follow the directions, there is a right and left eye mask.
Both of these treatments are "leave-on", so after removing the masks you can massage the treatment right into your skin.
Love, love, love these products.

Yu-Be Foaming Skin Polish

Yu-Be Foaming Skin Polish is another great skin care product from Japan. Love their lip me crazy but I love the smell of camphor:) Camphor stimulates blood circulation and gives me rosy cheeks. This skin polish is for face & body and when I get in the shower, I use it on elbows and knees and ankles..anywhere I have rough, dry skin. It has very fine grains of rice bran, with bamboo and walnut shell powder, very fine but effective for sloughing away dead skin cells. Extracts of ginger root and ginseng tone & balance the skin, improves elasticity. Green tea is rich in antioxidants &  geranium oil to soothe and refresh. ..and plenty of glycerin for moisturizing. It is great for the morning shower and then slather on your favorite body lotion and you are all set against winter-y dry air.
Look for Yu-Be products in Sephora, Nordstroms, Whole Foods or on- line at, and

John Paul Selects/Marula Cleansing Lotion

First and foremost, we have to get over the idea that a product with oil in it will not work for our face. It has taken me quite a while, I am always skeptical. Marula oil, harvested in Africa, has a 50% higher omega 6 & 9 content than argon oil.  Added ingredient alpha hydroxyl acid complex, derived from natural sugars and fruit extracts, helps improve cell turnover and glycan technology with a natural peptide, helps promote collagen production. This all adds up to  a powerful, yet gentle cleanser, that leaves skin soft and glowing.
Love this cleanser, sets my skin up for absorbing my serum before bed.
John Paul Selects is a line new to me, but the developer's face is not. It is none other than John Paul DeJoria, the man behind our beloved Paul Mitchell Products.
