Helping me Get Through the Day.

I have been spending so much time outdoors, and do everything I can to protect my face form the sun. I always wear a wide brimmed hat and sunglass in the sun, but that is simply not enough. Thank goodness for Sôleil Ultra Expert Sun Care SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Cream for Sensitive Skin from Lancome.

This face cream has been a savior for my sensitive skin. I am so sensitive when it comes to many sun screens, and this has not bothered my face at all. In fact, I love the hydration.  This cream is formulated with SunCalm Complex that is made with rose extract to help soothe sensitive skin,  Collasôme, an advanced formula that helps boost skin’s elasticity, along with the broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, while 100% botanically pure Vitamin E helps to strengthen the skin’s natural defenses by neutralizing free radicals.

This cream goes on my face first thing in the morning after cleansing, and is re-applied if I am going to the beach or pool. A must have for any beach or cosmetic bag - especially if you are sensitive to sun screens as I.


Good as Gold.

I love to layer gold lipstick, especially over a pretty pink lipstick in the Summer.  This one is sheer and shimmery - not to mention sexy!

It is selling only in a pre-launch exclusive at Sephora right now, so to get it, you have to click on the links here.
