La Prairie Cellular Energizing Body Spray on Belle Belle Beauty

My twentieth high school reunion is this weekend. Lots of memories have been flooding back like Sublime the band, Levi jeans with plaid shirts and driving around on carefree fall days during free period. In the beauty department, I remember fruity and sweet body sprays. So much high school style is back for round two these days and I like to think I’d bring back body spray but this time with a little glam.

La Prairie Cellular Energizing Body Spray is incredibly luxurious and a stunning scent to wear on days when perfume feels a little too heavy. Plus, the formula nourishes skin while providing an aromatherapeutic experience. Ruby red grapefruit, cardamom and verbena offer an uplifting scent while providing skin with a light moisturization.

Spray Cellular Energizing Body Spray generously over the entire body for a total sensory experience. Reapply throughout the day, whenever you feel in need of a lift. I’m thinking of stocking up on a second bottle for my desk. How grown up!

bluemercury M-61 powerglow peel on Belle Belle Beauty

I am a big fan of in-office peels with your aesthetician. But sometimes that isn’t always possible. And bluemercury has a solution is just as good. With a new store here in Tulsa and their 18th anniversary, I figured I’d bring back an old favorite to the routine. The M-61 powerglow peel is a fan-favorite product at the store. The 1-minute 1-step peel works well as part of a a regular routine or for special occasions for a radiant glow.

I do want to note that this isn’t for the weak at heart. I call the effect “spicy” but this definitely stings. I don’t mind since I can be sensitive and I know it is working. But those who have temperamental skin might want to test out before buying a big box of peels.

The wipe is super easy to travel with. Packed with glycolic and salicylic acids, the peel exfoliates, resurfaces and clarifies skin. But the best effect is the radiant glow. The chamomile and lavender calm skin and I credit them with leaving only very slight redness on my skin.

Available at bluemercury.

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Eczema & Psoriasis Therapy on Belle Belle Beauty

I have suffered from psoriasis for most of my life, but just this year I learned that there is a Psoriasis Awareness Month. And it just happens to be August! No wonder we get a month for awareness – I am far from alone in suffering. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, over 7.5 million people in the United States alone suffer from psoriasis. While Eczema and Psoriasis aren’t the same, I’ve had flare ups of eczema also, and was so glad to see a collection that addresses both conditions. And in such a cool, homeopathic way. 

The SheaMoisture African Black Soap Eczema & Psoriasis Therapy collection harnesses the power of African Black Soap, an ingredient used throughout Africa for centuries. It is used for covering blemishes, diminishing dark spots and exfoliating skin. The formula works to calm irritation, soothe inflammation (the real culprit here in my opinion) and clean skin without harsh chemicals. I love the fragrance – or rather, the lack thereof. There is this really clean tropical feel, not cloying or sweet. But still with a hint of coconut and vanilla.

Reading some of the reviews, I can’t help but notice that so many of them rave about acne improving using the bar soap. And what a deal at under $5. With so much skincare getting prohibitively expensive, I find it refreshing a line that delivers results at a great price point. I can’t imagine my shower now without this bar of soap. It lathers beautifully and my skin is already clearer and less inflamed. 

Available at Target and Amazon

Wednesday On The Web

by Lindsay on August 9, 2017

in news

I have a serious case of wanderlust on my mind. More than once, I have almost hit purchase on a last-minute weekend getaway. But I didn’t let it get the best of me. I decided to save for something really fabulous in 2018. Puglia, Bali, a Canadian cruise, perhaps? Meanwhile, I will be dreaming of being on the beach above. Some links from my internet trolling this week:

Dangerous beauty ingredients.

I am totally hooked on Halo Top ice cream and they just released seven new flavors!

This spa visit sounds dreamy (and the products are packaged so beautifully).

My favorite summer sandals in gold.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Recovery Complex II on Belle Belle Beauty


A come to you today with a bold statement: I am not sure my personal skin care routine will ever be complete without the classic Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Recovery Complex. The formula is so outstanding in fighting puffiness and dark circles. This silky gel is proven to reduce signs of aging like wrinkles as well.

Immediately, I notice a smoother appearance under my eyes. The puffiness subsides and my dry skin soaks up the application for a more youthful appearance. Over time, it can help with dark circles and uneven skin tones. I love the cushioned feel without being oily. I use just a small amount on my pinky and blend around my eye at night. I guess it comes with an applicator, but, per usual, I accidentally threw it away. Oops.

Available at Nordstrom.
