Memorial Day (and Everyday) Beauty at Sephora

Going through the newspaper this morning…..yes, there are still a few people who do that….you’re likely to find lots of Memorial Day sales designed to lure you to your  nearest shopping mall.  The truth is, I’m not usually big on heading out to the mall for great fashion  finds.  I tend to seek out small stand-alone shops and boutiques for those unique items that no one else has.  But for great beauty products….I’m there!  Whether I’ve just run out of my favorite mascara or am in search of a new eye shade,  for me there’s no place better than Sephora! There’s virtually nothing beauty-related that you can’t find there!  So, while you’re at the mall this weekend (I know you’re going!), check out two of my newest finds available at the makeup megastore:

Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel

I love the way my skin feels after using a mask.  If you want to see immediate results, this is for you!  Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel uses glycolic acid and Vitamin C to exfoliate and  leave your skin smoother, more hydrated and brighter looking after just one use.  Not thick and “goopy”like a lot of  traditional masks, all you have to do is massage it evenly over your face and neck, leave it on for 10 minutes (there’s just a bit of tingling), rinse and pat dry and voila!  It gives my skin such an amazing  glow that I don’t even want to cover it up with  makeup.  I LOVE this!  It’s available at and at the Murad Inclusive Health Spa®  as well as Sephora,, Ulta and leading salon and spa locations nationwide. $49.50 for 1.7 FL. OZ.

Vanilla Summer by Lavanila Laboratories

Maybe you weren’t able to get away for the weekend, but there’s still a way you can be transported to your own private summer oasis. Lavanila Laboratories, known for their beautiful and luxurious products that are 100% good for you, now has a healthly deoderant in a new limited edition fragrance.  Vanilla Summer has a soft, sexy scent that really does remind me of summer! Its blend of essential oils (fresh mango, pineapple, coconut milk and island sugar cane and Madagascar vanilla) will make you think of  hot summer nights and tropical breezes.  It’s made from natural ingredients and anti oxidants that nourish and protect the skin. It smells amazing and just makes you want to say “mmmmmmmmm”.

Give these two a try and enjoy the holiday everyone!
