Meilily Product Photos: Kiehl’s Celebrity-Designed Acai Toning Mists!

What do recording artist Pharrell Williams, actress Julianne Moore, artist Jeff Koons, and model Malia Jones have in common? They have all designed limited edition labels for Kiehl’s Acai Damage-Protecting Toning Mist, with up to $200,000 of net profits from the sale of the celebrity Toning Mists going to the Rainforest Alliance.

These 100% organic Limited Edition Acai Toning Mists are available in Kiehl’s stores now for $26 for a 6 fl. oz. spray bottle (same price as the regular bottles). These lavender-scented toning face mists are are my current “hot product” picks for Spring and Summer. The limited editions may also be slight reformulations of the regular Acai Toning Mist, which also contains “100% natural origin ingredients” but do not say they are “100% organic.”

Toning Product Pick: Bliss Love Handler

Monday, August 3rd, 2009 | Beauty Tips, Free Stuff, Product Picks, Shoes, Skincare | 1 Comment

Summer won’t be over for a while yet, so if you want to tighten up your swimsuit/short-skirt body, here’s a product for you!

Bliss’ Love Handler is great for toning not only the tummy area and love handles but also, I find, the derriere (bum) and thigh areas.

Use it wherever you choose! The slighty minty cooling sensation makes it feel like something’s working, but isn’t strong enough to feel burning or distracting. Whewh!

I was surprised to see toning results after my first use, but I suppose it could have just been my imagination. Either way, I think this stuff works, so that’s pretty good for skeptical me! YMMV, of course, but I like using Bliss Love Handler for smoother tighter skin.

Don’t forget this savings code: Get 20% off fuzz fighting and body toning bestsellers at blissworld.com. Enter code HAIRY! Offer ends 8.9.09.

Or, better yet, you can browse the wide selection of fitness shoes at Blissworld.com, and pick out a pair of raved-about Swiss MBT shoes on sale for only $149… and get a Free full size Love Handler with your order! Get a FREE love handler with a $100 purchase at blissworld.com. Enter code FREELUV. Offer ends 8.9.09.

Meilily loves… Bliss Love Handler!

P.S. Meilily’s Product Tip: When you use Love Handler, you’ll probably want to wash your hands after applying it to your body so you don’t get any toning minty-ness in your eyes! Just a thought!

What to Actually Bring on a Summer Beach Vacation: Beauty & Skincare Necessities

Monday, July 6th, 2009 | Beauty Tips, General, Photos, Product Picks, Skincare | 2 Comments

While Meilily is on vacation in Kauai, here are some beauty and skincare product tips on what to bring on your next summer beach vacation… Check out this comparison of what Meilily brought, and what Meilily actually ended up using (and not using) while on vacation!

Beauty & Skincare Products for a Summer Beach Vacation

Must-haves…

  • Mineral Sunscreen -Lavera Sun Block SPF 40 Neutral Sunscreen (thick, mineral sun protection, whitening, but actually waterproof- perfect for hiking, snorkeling, and even beach-sitting!)
  • Insect Repellent – Skin So Soft BUG GUARD Plus Picaridin Insect Repellent Towelettes (easy to apply in the right amount and smells pretty good)
  • Natural Deodorant – Tom’s of Maine Natural Long-lasting Care Deodorant in Apricot (great, but perhaps not enough for a day-long trek through a swamp apparently)
  • Hair Conditioner sample packets – DHC has some generous hair care samples (4 Free DHC Samples with Every Order.)
  • A basic razor – I brought a disposable razor (shame on me), but non-disposable works too
  • A wide brim fold-able sun hat – found one at Nordstrom on sale (so useful in hot sun!)
  • Large sunglasses (really helps keep the delicate eye area protected from sun)

Good-to-haves… › Continue reading

Setoso Eye Balm – Instantly Cooling Moisture Stick

Monday, May 11th, 2009 | Skincare | Comments Off

Meilily: Setoso Eye Balm

Meilily: Setoso Eye Balm

Meilily Featured Product!

I know it’s not quite summer here yet, but seeing as all the catalogs have been featuring swimsuits lately, I thought I’d mention a product I’ve tried that would be perfect for warm weather.

I had the opportunity to try out a new skincare line called Setoso Skincare, and found that their Eye Balm product was surprisingly cooling and perfect for warm summer (or spring) days.

Almost like a large lip balm stick, Setoso Eye Balm comes in an attractive and easy-to-use sage green twist-up tube, and feels instantly cooling and non-greasy when applied to the skin. Though it is called “Eye Balm” I am tempted to use this on my lips, on my cheeks, at my temples, or even at pulse points for a cooling touch of light moisture.
