The market is flooded with skin care products but not with quality products. What sets Dermalogica apart from the others is its refusal to use low cost industry standard ingredients like artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, lanolin and mineral oil. Dermalogica is formulated from eco-friendly and safe ingredients and packaged in recyclable containers. Rather than focusing on pretty packaging, founder Jane Wurwand fixated her attention on the ingredients to produce a product line less geared to beauty and more to one that would improve skin health. She furthered her direction by insisting that education and training were the keys to promoting quality products. In 1986 a small classroom under the name “The International Dermal Institute” was opened in Marina del Rey, California. With 37 locations Jane’s idea has been a success. Dermalogica has many fine skin products to choose from that treat various skin conditions, such as acne, dry skin, fine lines and dark circles. Eye serums, multi-vitamin power firm for the lips and eyes and a skin smoothing cream are only three of the anti-aging products available. For acne, clearing mattifier, overnight clearing gel and sebum clearing masque are a few of the choices available. For whatever products you choose, you can relax knowing the composition of each is made from ingredients to stimulate skin health and no product as ever been cruelly tested on animals.
Nivea Lip Butter Caramel Cream Kiss would be what I am talking about. I am extremely picky when it comes to things that I use to moisturize my lips in which I mean that it actually has to do just that. I have tried every lip balm & chapstick out there. It seems that only Carmex seems to do the job, that is until now.
Nivea lip butters have been making the rounds around youtube and on various other blogs so I wanted to see what the hype was all about. I wanted to know if maybe just maybe this would work for me. I am always on the look out for something to fit my high expectations so I can switch things up and have a little bit of variety.
The smell of this is amazing. It has a salty sweet smell that temps me to want to take a bite! Seriously it is that yummy. The texture is very soft so if you are using your finger be very careful not to press too hard. It has no color when you apply to the lips. I have seen some posts that say it leaves a white cast on your lips but I haven’t experienced that myself.
I found this baby at my local CVS. It wasn’t located with the cosmetics or the lip products but in the isle with all the lotions and creams. The one thing that concerned me about these lip butters is that the very first ingredient is Petrolatum. You can read more about it here.
When ever I look at buying nail polish there are always a few things that I look at first. First thing that I look for is the Chemical ingredients. I love for the polishes that I chose for my collection to be free from harmful chemicals. LAQA & Co have happily ticked the box, they are 3 Free nail polishes.
The second thing that I look for is a nail polish that I am not going to have to apply a million coats of color to become opaque, I can happily say that LAQA&Co ticked that box two. I could have gotten away with just one coat but opted for two to make sure that they were really opaque.
The third thing that I look for is staying power. I have some polishes by a VERY famous cult brand that chips on me the very next day. I use a case coat and a top coat but still the chips happen. I can happily report that LAQA&Co nail polish chipped on the 6th day I was wearing it. I could not be happier.
