I never go anywhere without lip balm of some sort and am extremely embarrassed to say that I have never tried Burt’s Bees! After getting the “Essentials Kit” I think I am love! I am NOT embarrassed to say that I am never going back to my old lip balm! The Beeswax Lip Balm was smooth, stayed on for a long time and smelled delicious! The Hand Salve keeps my hands from looking 20 years older than my body. The Coconut Foot Cream reminds me of suntan oil and smells SO good! The Cleansing Cream leaves my hands fresh and without residue. The Lotion was stolen my my daughter because she has really dry skin, so she keeps it by her bed. (I forgot the whole kit was supposed to be for her!)
You can purchase the Burt’s Bees Essential Kit here. It retails for $10.
FOR DATE NIGHT (FOR YOU)…
John Frieda® for Conair Volume Curls 1 1/2” Curling Iron
For tousled on-trend waves this Valentine’s Day, reach for the John Frieda® Volume Curls 1 1/2” Curling Iron, engineered with Titanium Ceramic Technology and Advanced Ionic Conditioning to seal in moisture and reduce frizz. With 11 digital heat settings offering high heat up to 400°F/205°C, it’s easy to select a safe heat level for your hair type. Designed for quick, easy styling, the John Frieda® Volume Curls 1 1/2” Curling Iron prevents dull, heat damaged hair and delivers loose, bouncy waves that shine with good health.
HOW TO USE: Curl hair in 1-inch wide sections, no more the ½-inch thick. Open the barrel and clamp section at the ends. Roll hair up an inch from the root then hold for ten seconds. Release the clamp on the handle and allow hair to fall into place. Repeat until desired results are achieved.
I was super excited about this curling iron because my old one mysteriously vanished somewhere between AZ, CA and UT. I was even more excited when I realized how much better it is than my old one! I love that my hair doesn’t get stuck in the clamp, I can pull the curling iron through without it creating lines in my hair and it takes all the frizz out! I don’t have to straighten my hair all the way and then curl the ends. I would recommend the John Frieda® Volume Curls 1 1/2” Curling Iron to anyone who needs a new curling iron and wants to look super hot for Valentine’s Day!
The John Frieda® Volume Curls 1 1/2” Curling Iron can be purchased at Ulta, CVS, Best Buy and Meijer and retails for $32.99.
FOR THE HUSBAND OR BOYFRIEND…
Krigler Blue Escapade 24
This light floral, woody fusion was created in 1924, inspired by a trip between Biarritz and San Sebastian—Napoleon Bonaparte’s holiday locale of choice. Arriving by boat, Albert Krigler was struck by the ocean’s aroma, muddled with the lush foliage on land as he approached the coast-line. Blue Escapade 24 features a fresh, breezy top with a lush fruity heart and a deep, woody base.
Top Notes: Grapefruit, Orange
Heart Notes: Fig, Berries, Geranium leaves
Base Notes: Cedar, Vetiver, Benzoin Resin
My husband desperately needs a new scent, especially after I made a mistake and bought him a women’s perfume last year. He ended up wearing it to work several times but then I started feeling bad that he came home smelling like a girl. I think I owe this sample to him because it smells very manly and not at all like apples. I really don’t ever think I will live that one down, but I do have a very nice smelling perfume now! The Blue Escapade 24 smells very outdoorsy but is not too overpowering. I don’t know how much I can say about this without sending the smell through the computer! I really like it and so does my husband.
It can be purchased on the Krigler website and retails for $215-1.7fl.oz., $305-3.4fl.oz.
