Posts From July 2011
This Summer felt like the Summer of the SPF. SPF has evolved a fair bit this year and I’m seeing more and more options that offer a higher SPF factor of 50 and up. Such products are the norm in the Asian market however here in the US we tend to stick to the 30 range.
Another interesting evolution is drugstore makeup brands offering SPF options. Asia is flooded with a variety of SPF products and brands in particular offer not only color cosmetic options but also an SPF product or several. It’s very rare that there isn’t some SPF option available from most brands in Asia.
Versus here in the US, where we don’t normally see our favorite brands such as say Maybelline or Revlon offering a product available exclusively for sun protection.
Neutrogena changes all that with it’s new Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection. Does this mean we’ll see more drugstore brands offering SPF products all their own?
Let’s hope so!

Christmas in July?
Today I bring a very small little sample of Bobbi Brown Holiday Collection 2011 today!
Happens to the best of us I fear.
Jared Padalecki perfect example of how age creeps up on us. What happened to his baby face? Awww..but at least his wrinkles give him character!
For you Jared, I have a package of Beauty Story Platinum Bird’s Nest Jelly Eye Masks. And for me too dude…sometimes we all need a little pick me up!
Philosophy has been busy releasing “Shower Gels of the Month” on QVC. The first one, which I missed (kicking self), was Lively Lemon Coconut back in June.
And for July we have Tropical Daiquiri! Seriously, what’s better than a mocktail in our shower that won’t give us a hangover in the AM?
My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale order was sadly lacking. What did you haul?
Mine consisted of Dior Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette.
How awful. But there wasn’t anything that I really needed or wanted this year. It seemed quite uneventful.
Did you haul Blooming Bouquet?
I love it but….!
