Everyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with the brand, La Mer. It’s just an all-around good skincare line. Yes, it’s a splurge but, for people with sensitive skin, so worth it. My favorite product, as of late, has been the Hand Treatment. Since the beginning of my pregnancy, my skin has been a bit dry and the Hand Treatment has done wonders in terms of smoothing and calming my swollen hands and arms.
Even though it’s still mid-summer (and despite the fact that I’m pregnant), when it comes to fashion and beauty, I always make an effort to think ahead. Since I’ve stopped painting my nails (due to the birth-defect-causing chemicals in my favorite brand of nail polish), I’ve started shopping for my fall and winter lipstick. Right now, I’m wearing gloss. And everyone (who wears lipstick and glosses regularly) knows that gloss is just not going to cut it during the dead of winter. My favorite has always been CD’s lipstick collection–specifically, the Extreme Collection. What I love about CD’s lipsticks is that they glide on and have a very subtle shimmer to them (and also include some of the best colors on the market).
