Where has this little beauty gadget been all of my life? I love this! It’s The Scent Genie. Use it and you can take your favorite perfume with you wherever you go. This pocket size atomizer is available in 5 colors. It’s made from 98% recyclable materials. The Scent Genie is aircraft approved and very user friendly. It easily attaches to the spray mechanism of any perfume bottle and with soft repeatable presses it fills itself. I am happy to travel with my “fave” fragrances now instead of little sample sizes of any fragrance I can get my hands on.

I have finally mastered the technique of teasing my hair! Up until I discovered the VERSI COMB, I just couldn’t get it right. The VERSI COMB amazingly makes it easy. It’s a brush, comb and teaser combined into one. It shines, volumizes, smoothes and separates. Melissa Peverini, celebrity hairstylist with over 20 years experience created it. Use its narrow side (with nylon and boar’s hair brush bristles) to separate & lift your hair at the crown, gently brush your hair back down toward the scalp, switch to the wide side (with nylon and boar’s hair brush bristles) to smooth the remaining hair over the teased area. Watch the videos on the website to learn more. Love it! www.versicomb.com

Department store fragrance counters are full of women’s fragrances that boast ingredients such as sweet freesia, orange flower, Cherry Blossom, fresh ginger, black cherry, white Neroli blossom, Vanilla Orchid, sandalwood and more. You’ll find colognes, perfumes, Eau De Toilette and Eau De Parfum. There are sprays, roll, oils and solids. How do you decide on which one is right for you? First think about the smells that you are naturally attracted two. Secondly get the help of a trained professional. Try the perfume on your skin. Trying it on the little strips of paper that are sometimes offered can be deceiving. Body chemistry plays a huge role in how a scent smells on you. The fragrance needs to mix with your own personal scent. The same fragrance will smell differently on different people. Never try more than two fragrances at the same time, although it is best to try just one. Spray the fragrance on your wrists and walk away. You can not judge the scent of a fragrance just seconds after you try it. Be patient. Wait 10 to 20 minutes and smell your wrists. You may want to wait even longer to see how long the scent lasts.

Sunless & Skinny or sunless and not so skinny…either way you’ll love Fake Bake’s SUNLESS & SKINNY self-tanning, firming and toning lotion. It’s paraben free, fast acting and doesn’t stink like most other self tanners. It has a really pleasant smell. The tan develops immediately and darkens with additional applications. It’s clinically tested to show firmer, more toned skin within two weeks of proper usage. I am a true fan of the Fake Bake brand and must say this is one of my favorite products from the line. www.fakebake.com
There has been so much hype about makeup primers recently that I got my hopes up that my skin would look fab! when using them. Disappointingly, that had not proven true until I learned that Reviva Labs had a new Makeup Primer and decided to give it a try. Love it! It has a gel consistency. As with most primers you can use it alone, under makeup or over moisturizer. I feel the smoothness and silkiness right after applying it and it doesn’t gunk up when I put makeup over it. The formula includes COQ10 as a protective antioxidant, Olive Oil, Vitamin D3 & Vitamin A. www.revivalabs.com
