You cook with it, and you clean with it; you even slather your dry heels in it. We already know olive oil is a kitchen and bathroom staple, and luckily Kiss My Face makes it even easier to use with its much-loved Pure Olive Oil Bar Soap ($3). Ultragentle and softening, this no-scent bar works up into a moderate lather on skin. And because it's so pure — no artificial colors or harsh chemicals here — skin is left moisturized and supple, not dry, taut, or greasy. It's as simple as that. Kiss that irritated skin goodbye.
Help oily birds: Fifty percent of all proceeds from Anthony Logistics Body Cleansing Gels ($16.50) and Shampoos ($16) is going to Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research to support wildlife rescue efforts in Louisiana. Plus, Anthony already donates a percentage of all its proceeds to charities for prostate cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma research.
Instead of screaming "Kiss my bum!" to a pushy shopper at the mall, you'll be typing "Kiss My Face" in the comfort of your home.
Starting tomorrow, Dec. 9, the natural product company is offering 50 percent off every item on its webstore for 24 hours. Now, that's a deal I can embrace.

Nothing says "fresh and clean" like the tart and sweet smell of a great citrus product. Seeing as I am also something of a hand cream addict, I thought it would be fun to share some citrus-scented creams that I've been using these days.
Jurlique Citrus Hand Cream ($25) smells spicy and a little sweet, like tangerine and lemon zest. It's thick and soothing and soaks right into your hands leaving them unbelievably soft and non-greasy. What's great about it is that the scent is true to the fruits themselves; it smells natural, not synthetic.

Long weekend? Here are some great night-time skin products to ensure that you'll look bright-eyed and refreshed even if you've just come off of a sleepless night. I've already told you about the newest rage in overnight hair care from Kerastase as well as the fabulous Talika Eye Decompress Masks, so here are some soothing and rejuvenating night creams that will make your skin look revived and renewed.
Soothe. Guerlain Issima Midnight Secret ($106) is an oxygenating treatment designed to help you look refreshed when you're suffering from lack of sleep. It works to speed up the exfoliation process so that you don't wake up looking gray, tired or lackluster. Just slather it on and try and catch as many Z's as possible!

When you go outside to enjoy the warmth and sunshine, you've got to protect your lips from the sun's harmful rays. That skin can get sunburned too, and excessive exposure could cause lip cancer.
Just as you apply sunscreen to your skin, you need to apply sunscreen to your lips. Many lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip balms contain SPF, so check those labels ladies.
Here's a list of some of my favorite protective lip balms and lipsticks. Beeswax lip balm from Burt's Bees is still my all time favorite even though it doesn't contain any SPF, so I just reserve it for nighttime use if my lips feel dry after spending a day in the sun.
Welcome back to my five-part series on Fantastic Facial Creams for your skin type. (What skin type do you have? Tell me here.) Yesterday, I gave you the best face lotions for oily skin, and today, we'll explore face creams for dry skin.
There are actually two kinds of dry skin: oil dry and water dry. Oil dry means that you don't have enough oil in your skin, so you'll want to use a cream that contains natural oils. Water dry means that your skin is dehydrated and typically manifests itself in fine lines all over your face. If this is your skin type, drink plenty of water and look for a product with a humectant. Here are my recommendations for both types of dry skin.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion ($9.89) is formulated to soothe and nourish water-dry skin. It has an oil-free, fragrance-free, and non-greasy texture, and it contains humectants that enrich your skin with moisture. It's also great for sensitive skin, since it contains no irritation-causing lanolins or parabens.
