Valentine’s Day is the holiday of LOVE, and it’s right around the corner! Since I have so much love for so many things, I thought I’d share some of the things that have my “LOVE” right now.

HydroRush SPF 20

Showing LOVE in skincare…When it comes to skincare, we know that Clinique has earned their place in history and in our hearts with their classic three-step skincare system that has been around for decades. So when they introduced the Pep-Start collection for all skin types, I couldn’t contain my excitement and immediately purchased the eye cream. And just like that several months later, they’ve added a new hydrating moisturizer to the collection, HydroRush SPF 20.

HydroRush SPF 20 Moisturizer instantly refreshes and delivers all-day hydration. Thanks to HydroRush moisture barrier technology, the luxurious formula is packed with antioxidants, anti-irritants, peptides and barrier strengthening ingredients. This oil-free moisturizer can be worn solo or under makeup!

When you LOVE your hair, you use only awesome products… I’ve been using Mielle Organics Edge Control Gel and taking their hair growth vitamins for several months now and truly can say we’ve got a love thang going on! In January they gave me more to love when they added three new products to their growing product line!

The new all-natural and organic products include a Brazilian Curly Cocktail Cream, Brazilian Curly Cocktail Mousse, and Honey & Ginger Styling Gel. The products were added after popular demand by consumers and the brand’s desire to have a full line of items for maintaining healthy hair and styling.

My favorites right now are the curly cocktail cream and curly cocktail mousse. These two products work together to help achieve soft, defined, frizz-free curls. Did I mention they are full of organic Brazilian oils as well- babassu, buriti buriti, copaiba oil and muru muru?

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Sometimes LOVE can be Peachy… as in the Too Faced Cosmetics Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette! Let me be the first to admit that I was late to the party on this one. I must tell you that I thought people were losing their minds the first time this palette came out because I just didn’t think it was all that and it did not deserve all the hype it was getting. Okay, I was being a hater! You know the kind that is just hating for no reason or for sport- yeah that was me when it came to this palette. Fast forward to me visiting one of my makeup friends and playing with the colors; ya girl fell head first for the peach. So lucky for me I only had a few months until the second release of it, and I scored my own.

The things that make this palette a must-have for all makeup collectors are the amazing colors and the quality of shadows we’ve come to love and expect from Too Faced Cosmetics.

Salve Naturals Products

LOVE for local artists that make life better… After a busy two weeks getting ready for super bowl week and during super bowl week I was more than ready for Super Bowl Sunday! It meant a great day of football and super bowl commercials, and it also meant I could unwind with a long bath, a glass of wine and an evening doing nothing. With that, it also gave me the perfect opportunity to use my new bath soaks from Salve Naturals. This detox soak helped to relax my mind and body. The organic Atlantic help detoxifies the skin and body with its essential fatty acids that improve skin’s elasticity. The infusion of the essential oils Bergamot and Ginger make it so much more than just a bath soak. Salve Naturals is a Houston-based company that manufactures and produces an all-natural and organic skin care line.
