    Survive the Winter with Bath & Body Works

    I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and were spoiled with tons of goodies! Can we ever really be too spoiled?? I like to think not. So even though Christmas has just passed, I say indulge yourself this winter by arming your skin against the harsh weather and keeping it luxuriously soft and smooth.

    I am a total Bath & Body Works freak. I am a little bit obsessed with skin care so when these three little gems made their way to my doorstep, I was pleased to say the least. The Signature Collection Triple Moisture Shower Cream in Warm Vanilla Sugar ($12.50) is the first step to fabulous skin this winter. Taking a shower with it means you start off with skin that’s hydrated, smooth and smells fantastic. I’m also very sensitive to smells so if this doesn’t bother me, it shouldn’t bother you.

    If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: the first signs of aging appear on your hands and lips. So it’s absolutely necessary to keep both those areas hydrated at all times, especially during the winter. True Blue Spa Shea Cashmere Hand Cream ($12.50) is in my handbag right now and I’m super thankful for it. It saves my hands from drying out, cracking and aging prematurely. It’s really true to its name, leaving hands feeling like they’ve just been wrapped in luxurious cashmere. Another one of my mottos: if it’s got shea butter, you need it! It’s one of the best naturally hydrating ingredients you can find.

    For the lips, I’m starting to fall in love with C.O. Bigelow Lemon Lip Cream ($7.50). It intensely hydrates the lips and gives them a burst of flavour with its delicious lemon aroma. I like to apply it before bed to let the formula repair my lips while the cells are regenerating. That’s the best time to apply intensely hydrating products.

    Looking for fab skin? Head to Bath & Body Works. You may even score some amazing Boxing Week sales on your fave products.

    Jeff Koons Limited Edition Creme de Corps From Kiehl’s

    I thought I’d start off the week by diving, yet again, into the holiday spirit. However, today’s featured items are different from most of the ones I’ve shared with you the last few weeks. The Jeff Koons Limited Edition Creme de Corps Collection from Kiehl’s is the gift that gives back.

    This holiday season, when you purchase the Creme de Corp Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Body Butter ($45) or the Creme de Corp Body Moisturizer (250ml, $37.50; 500ml with pump $62) you will be supporting the Koons Family Institute, an initiative of the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children. Giving one of the Jeff Koons Limited Edition Creme de Corps Collection items as holiday gift this year means you can help Kiehl’s and the Jeff Koons Institute raise $200,000 for this fabulous cause.

    As someone who adores the buttery soft feeling of a Kiehl’s nourishing body cream, I can tell you that there can’t possibly be many people who wouldn’t love to receive this as a gift this year. As always, Kiehl’s offers up high quality body care products that are sure to leave any skin type feeling luxuriously hydrated, smooth and supple thanks to naturally moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and jojoba butter.

    Plus, if you visit the Nutcracker Market (located at 1001 Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, The Palais des Congrès de Montréal) between noe and December 4, 10% of your purchases from the Kiehl’s booth will be donated to Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, which supports the Nutcracker Fund for Children, a charity that gives ill and disadvantaged children the chance to experience a perfomance of The Nutcracker. So you can feel doubly good about your purchases that day!

    Kudos to Kiehl’s for embarking on such inspiring projects this holiday season. Oh, and one last thing. There will also be workshops that day hosted by Kiehl’s representatives between 2:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m on Saturday, December 4. These workshops will help you find the ideal products for your skin type.

    Happy Monday, everyone!
