Facial Fuel.

My husband's skin has been acting funny lately. It has been oily and irritated more than usual from shaving. So I did a bit of research and decided that he should try a new cleanser, just for men, from Kiehl's. It is called Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash.

It is a great smelling gel that lathers just a bit when applied to a wet face. It thoroughly cleanses his skin, leaving it very fresh feeling and better yet, soft and smooth - a perfect surface for shaving.

The formula is full of great things like caffeine, menthol, vitamin E, and lemon and orange peel extracts. It is balanced just so that the oils, the ones that men seem to plagued with, are washed away without stripping the skin of the oils the skin needs - making it over-dry.

My hubby likes it, swears he gets a closer shave after using it, and I think his skin looks more evenly toned, after only a few weeks of usage.

Facial Fuel now has a permanent place in his shower. It retails for $16.00 and is available wherever Kieh's is sold, as well as kiehls.com.

A Hot Pink Glow!

The Chairman (woman) of the board and founder of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Evelyn Lauder, has created her own lipgloss for Estee Lauder for their annual BCA campaign. It is an Estee Pure Color Gloss ($20) in "Evelyn Hot Pink".

Don't forget that the best part of the lipgloss is that Estée Lauder will donate $80,000 from the sale of it to her foundation.
