Favorite New Finds

While some of these may not be new on the market, they are recent discoveries of mine that I've been impressed with:

1) L'Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss - $7.99
I am a big fan of most of L'Oreal's glosses - although they tend to discontinue them more frequently than I'd like.  This one is great because it contains moisturizers like Omega 3 & Vitamin E plus it smells like candy!  These have a richly pigmented formula for great coverage & high shine.

2) Kerasal Exfoliating Pumice Paste - $6.99
My new favorite for keeping feet soft & callus-free in the summer!  Scoop out a small amount & scrub over your feet in the shower.  It exfoliates like a pumice stone, but also contains natural oils that help restore moisture to your skin.

3) Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin - $6.29
I have super-thick hair that usually requires dozens of bobby pins to hold an updo in place.  So I was slightly skeptical about this new tool...but it works amazingly well!  Simply create a bun, screw these in & it will stay put all day long!  Plus, they come in different shades to match your haircolor.

4) John Frieda Clear Shine Luminous Color Glaze - $16.99 (2-pack)
Sometimes we all need a little "boost", especially when hair is being exposed to the sun more frequently.  This conditioning glaze smoothes hair & leaves it shiny without weighing strands down.  Use once a week & leave on for 20 minutes for a "fresh from the salon" look!

* I am guest posting for a blogger friend in England today & discussing my affinity for the classic pencil skirt (as seen in yesterday's outfit post) - come check it out here:

I will definitely try the Kerasal Exfoliating Pumice Paste. Will be in the bathub though, I have problems reaching my feet when I use the shower. I am not that tall either! :)

Just did a post today on my LOVE of Spin Pins! I think they are the best hair invention in a while. Makes it SOO easy to put my hair in a bun & PERFECT for the summer heat!

Everyone raves about the spin pins and it's making me want to try them! But I have the opposite problem - thin, short hair. I'm afraid even the minis that just came out won't work in my hair. Just might have to try!

I've heard about these style spin pins, my cousin told me it works so good! Since I cut my hair shorter and in layers, I have a hard time making a bun, maybe I should try this..

Btw, I'm hosting my first GIVEAWAY, you're welcome to participate said...

Oh the pumice paste is a perfect suggestion for this time of the year. Reminds me to pay more attention to my feet before I hit the beach!
