Affiliate Links




As spring is (finally) fast approaching, I want to show you my pick for fresh, just-pinched cheeks on this #FrenchFriday: Dior's intriguing color-adjusting Rosy Glow, described as a "healthy glow awakening blush". It's been around for years and Dior makeup artists have used it on me a few times, but I only just bought it a few months ago and it's now time to share my thoughts with you!

Public announcement: new comment system




Dear reader, this is just a quick note to let you know that after a few frustrating months and multiple bugs, I gave up IntenseDebate to manage the comments on this blog. It seems that this platform is not supported by its creators anymore, so when a problem arises there's nobody to turn to for help.

I don't like Blogger's native comment system either, so I just installed Disqus, the most popular comment app in the blogging world. I was able to import the existing comments from IntenseDebate so everything you said in the past year or so is still here, although your avatar picture is not visible any longer. I was unable to import the oldest comments left before I installed IntenseDebate, and I'm really sorry about that!

Please let me know if you notice anything looking weird on the blog or if you have any trouble using the Disqus app to leave a comment!

L'Occitane Almond shower oil review cinq monde Phyto-aromatic shower bath oil


Winter is really harsh on the skin, not just on the face but also on the body. With cold temperatures, overheated homes, steamy hot showers, multiple layers of heavy and often scratchy clothes, many of us get very dry, irritated and even itchy skin. When I lived in my hometown of Lyon, France, where winters get pretty cold (not Minnesota cold, but freezing temperatures are frequent), I used to get crazy itchy legs in the evening, it was so bad that I couldn't sleep!

Since I moved to Southern California I've never had such a bad case of dry skin, but I do need to pamper my body a little more during the cool season to keep my skin healthy. One of the best ways to do that without having to add an extra step to your body care routine is to replace your usual shower gel or wash with a cleansing oil. Let's take a look at my two favorite shower oils, a very popular one and another you've probably never heard of!
