Dynamic Duo: Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Crème

Votre+Vu+Duette Dynamic Duo: Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Crème

Believe it or not, I wear hardly any makeup on a daily basis. I’m so pressed for time in the mornings that I have neither the 15 minutes nor the energy to spare. But I’m not entirely low-maintenance. I’m never without lip balm and hand cream in my purse.

So I was thrilled when Votre Vu’s Duette recently showed up on my doorstep to review. Duette is a duo of deeply moisturizing lip balm and decadently rich hand crème in one package, and has become a staple in my purse since I first used it.

Flip the first cap on the tube to reveal a nourishing lip balm made from coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax. A deliciously light and natural coconut flavor delivers a guiltless treat to your lips with every application. The cap also contains a clandestine mirror for precise application.

Flip open the second cap to enjoy the Almond Pie Nutrient Rich Luxe Hand Crème. This intoxicating hand cream deeply moisturizes without any greasy residue, and leaves a soft veil of almond and coconut fragrance lingering on the skin. Beautifully absorbed, this special formula was developed to maintain the health, beauty and suppleness of your hands, while delighting your nose with a decadent aroma. Formulated with sunflower, grape seed and jojoba oils combined with moisturizing and healing aloe, wheat proteins and natural sun filters, this sweet treat is one big serving of hydrating heaven. The cream also contains sun filters for UVA/UVB protection to maintain skin tone, while helping protect and keep hands soft, supple and younger looking.

I’m digging on Duette so much that I’m compelled to spread the wealth. So, this week, I’m partnering with Votre Vu for a giveaway. Three readers will win this dynamic duo, which retails for $38.

To enter the giveaway, leave a message in the comments section; make sure to leave your email or another way for me to get in touch, just in case you get lucky. Contest is open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Tuesday, May 4, 2010. Good luck!

Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials – Plus A Giveaway!

cold+weather+woman Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

The cold weather hit Philly earlier than I had expected. So this weekend, I switched out the contents of my makeup bag (I don’t even want to say how many products I had crammed in there…I’m embarrassed) and replaced them with the following cold weather beauty essentials.

aveda+hand+relief Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Last week, it was cold and wet in my neck of the woods. It’s not even November yet, and my hands are crack-a-lackin’. So I retired my summer hand lotion, and pulled out the heavy artillery…Aveda’s Hand Relief. If this isn’t the best hand lotion on the market, I don’t know what is. It hydrates and soothes even severely dry hands – without leaving them greasy or sticky. And the citrusy scent is a nice pick-me-up. If you’ve never tried Hand Relief, now is the best time to buy. The Pink Ribbon special value tube has 7% more product than the regular size, and Aveda will donate $4 from each purchase to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

clear+nail+polish Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Clear Nail Polish is another cold weather essential I highly suggeststashing in your makeup bag. Not only does it protect your polish against the elements and extend the life of your mani, it’s also great for stopping stocking runs and rips in their tracks.

donna+karan+cashmere+mist+deodorant Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Remember how I told you that I carried a mini tube of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant in my purse this past summer? Well, it’s still there. And that’s where it’s gonna stay this season. Yes, I realize that the mercury is falling – but layered clothing combined with co-workers who like to jack up the thermostat can have you smelling quite ripe, if you’re not prepared. I am…are you?

carmex+moisture+plus Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Chapped lips are the bane of my existence. I hate how they look, how they feel, and how they’re the prelude to a bleeding, peeling, jacked up mess of a mouth. Preventing chapped lips doesn’t have to cost a fortune, as is evidenced by one of my new cold weather beauty finds – Carmex Moisture Plus. It moisturizes with Vitamin E, Aloe, and Shea butter and protects your pucker with SPF 15. I love the vanilla menthol scent and the fact that, despite the sun protection, I don’t feel like I’m eating sunscreen if I lick my lips. The slant tip applicator also ups the fab factor.

stila+convertible+color Five Cold Weather Makeup Bag Essentials   Plus A Giveaway!

Stila Convertible Color is a makeup bag must have year-round, but I always fall a little deeper in love when it gets colder and the summer glow fades from my face. This versatile bestseller brightens cheeks and lips with creamy, translucent color. If your skin tends to dry out during the colder months, you’ll love the formula – and how it gives your complexion a lit from within, realistic glow. I use Poppy to give my cheeks a pop of color – for a straight from the slopes, snow bunny look.

This post was sponsored by Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm. Thanks to them, I’m giving away a $25 Visa gift card and a one year supply of Carmex Moisture Plus samples! To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment by Wednesday, October 28th at midnight – and tell me one of your favorite cold weather beauty products.

Loving La Mer Lip Balm

la+mer+lip+balm Loving La Mer Lip BalmI used to believe that the hype surrounding La Mer Lip Balm was just that – all talk. But now that I’ve tried it, I’m jumping on the bandwagon and using my motor mouth to sing its praises.

La Mer Lip Balm instantly transforms chapped lips into a lush, pillowy pout reminiscent of Angelina Jolie. No joke. I’m addicted. And the vanilla mint fragrance puts it over the top.

Once you start using it, you’ll find yourself reaching for your lipsticks and glosses less and less – because lips this cushy and moist don’t need no dressin’.

If your purse strings are a lil tight but you’ve been dying to try La Mer, their lip balm is a wise investment.

Yankee Candle Flavored Lip Balm

yankee+candle+flavored+lip+balm Yankee Candle Flavored Lip BalmNow that the weather has a little chill to it, my summery scented candles just aren’t cutting it anymore. So today, I stopped by my local Yankee Candle store to find one with more of a fall fragrance (I decided on Macintosh Spice). Don’t you just love Yankee Candle? They kill me with their spot-on accurate scents.

Anyway, when I got to the register, I spotted an unexpected surprise. Yankee Candle now sells Flavored Lip Balm ($3.99)! Packaged like mini versions of their signature jar candles, these balms are made with beeswax, organic extra virgin olive oil, organic hemp seed oil, vitamin E and rosemary – and feature SPF 15. Available in five flavors, I picked up the Vanilla Lime (one of my all-time favorite YC scents).

Neosporin Launches New Lip Health Products

 Neosporin Launches New Lip Health ProductsIf you know me, you know that I’m a Neosporin junkie. I’m like the overzealous dad in My Big Fat Greek Wedding who sprays Windex on everything; except my weapon of choice is Neosporin. I put it on everything because, to me, Neosporin heals all wounds…and I feel nekkid if I don’t have a tube of it in my purse or on my person at all times.

So imagine my surprise (and excitement) to learn that the #1 doctor recommended brand of topical antibiotic treatment recently launched a new line of Lip Health products – timed perfectly to prepare your lips for the upcoming fall chill. They are hitting stores over the next few weeks and retail for around $4.99.

The new Neosporin Lip Health line includes 2 products:
* Daily Hydration Therapy nourishes and strengthens the lips by day, and has SPF 20.
* Overnight Renewal Therapy works during the body’s natural recovery process while you sleep, resulting in softer, smoother lips by day.

Both products have been clinically shown to restore visibly healthier lips in just 3 days. They have a patented technology that penetrates within the skin’s surface to restore healthier lips, unlike other products that simply provide a topical barrier.

Neosporin Lip Health products are available at nationwide food, drug and mass market chains.
