New Blistex Products & GIVEAWAY!!

Blistex Moisture Melt

Blistex Simple and Sensitive

Time for a holiday giveaway!  I am a huge fan of Blistex products and they never cease to amaze me with the products they come out with to keep your lips moisturized.  Just in time for the cold season, Blistex is rolling out two new lip balms, Moisture Melt and Simple and Sensitive!

·         Blistex Moisture Melt is a super hydrating balm with shea butter and aloe-enriched soft beads that are suspended in the formula and melt into lips for an added moisturizing boost and long-lasting resistance to dryness. The formula is infused with rich moisturizers and a proven skin protectant, perfect for keeping your pout healthy all winter long.

·         Blistex Simple and Sensitive contains only six carefully selected ingredients, including cocoa butter, sunflower seed oil, jojoba, vitamin E, microcrystalline wax and a preservative (phenoxyethanol), making it perfect for those with sensitive skin.  Lip balm users who are conscious about the number of ingredients in their personal care products will also enjoy Simple and Sensitive.

So which one is for you?  Why not try them both? With a retail price of $1.59-$2.49, these lip balms are now available at drug stores, supermarkets and mass merchandisers nationwide.

Blistex Intensive Hand Cream – GIVEAWAY!

Blistex Intesnive Hand Cream

I love moisturizing my hands and keeping them hydrated.  I use a variety of products, but I was excited to see that Blistex now has a new line of hand creams!

Blistex, known for excellence in lip care, has launched a new product line intended to deliver the same high level of care and comfort to hands.  Blistex Intensive Hand Cream is a glycerin-rich formula that requires only a small application to provide a smooth feel and healthy appearance to even the driest skin.  This new hand cream is available in scented and fragrance-free versions.

Blistex Intensive Hand Cream can be used every day, but its effects are immediately noticeable with even a single use, providing comfort and a silky feel for hours after application.  Its concentrated formula delivers great results when you apply just a small amount, and makes it very effective on other trouble skin areas like elbows and knees.

I got to try out this new hand cream on the scene and I must say a little does go a long way!  I just dab a little in the middle of my hand and that covers my whole hand completely, and leaves a light refreshing scent.  I don’t have to reapply until I wash my hands again, so it’s long lasting for those who use their hands a lot.  Also, it’s small enough to fit in my purse and it’s a great staple to stash one in your car! It does the trick in a time of need because this became my go-to for my knees and elbows when I had to glam up for a last-minute event out of my trunk!

For now, Blistex Intensive Hand Cream is available only at Walmart (1500 locations), where at $2.87 for a 3-ounce tube, it is priced to deliver an excellent value compared to most other hand cream products in the category today, a value made even better by the fact that just a dab delivers a major dose of comfort, hydration, and protection.

About Blistex… For over 60 years, Blistex has offered innovative and differentiated products with highly effective formulas, unique added benefits and extraordinary sensory experiences.  Blistex is a leader in lip care and specialty skin care.  For additional information about Blistex products, visit www.Blistex.com

Time For Lip Service & Enter to Win!

Lips.  They’re a part of our body that may be neglected when it comes to moisturizing.  But now, it’s time to listen up and pay more attention to that pucker!

According to a national poll about one’s morning ritual released by Blistex, only half the women surveyed use lip balm to protect their lips from dryness and sun damage.  Just like all our other body parts, our lips need to stay healthy and moisturized.  I had the opportunity to sit down with International beauty consultant Mickey Williams to learn more about the Blistex line and the must haves for the fall:

Revive and Restore

In stores everywhere in October, I got a sneak peek at the newest product from Blistex called Revive and Restore. Two separate jars full of fruity goodness that can be nested together with a twist, Revive is perfect for the day leaving your lips invigorated and refreshed with key ingredients like shea butter and SPF15.  Restore, loaded with Vitamin E can be used in the evening to rejuvenate your lips and soften any dullness from the day.  I’ve used it at night and it’s nice to wake up with lips ready for a kiss!  Another great thing is that you can carry these jars as a set or keep one in your purse and the other at home for the second shift.  Either way this product has makes you want to apply it all the time!

Cold and Allergy Lip Soother

There comes a time when you get a cold or the flu and one thing that can be affected is your lips which causes dryness and irritation.  Blistex has created a clever product, the Cold and Allergy Lip Soother which will comfort your lips in your time of need.  The lips can be an afterthought when you’re sick, but this soothing product has some key ingredients on defense:

  • Pramoxine HCL – advanced analgesic that alleviates sensitivity to lip soreness, pain and itchiness, without a medicated flavor and scent.
  • Dimethicone – delivers a highly effective barrier that prevents moisture loss and protects lips.
  • Glycerin, lanolin and sunflower seed oil – help re-moisturize lips parched from the effects of illness or dry air.
  • Vitamins C & E, chamomile, green tea, honey and elderberry – provide comfort to irritated lips.

Just in time for the fall season, the Cold and Allergy Lip Soother will also be available in October.

Now that I’ve given some lip service, head to your nearest drugstore next month for these fall lip essentials and also check out Blistex for their entire product line and lip tips!

Strike a Pose – Vogue Eyeglasses

Glasses similar to the ones I wore in junior high. Now they’re trendy!

I’ve worn glasses since middle school.  Wearing them at first made me feel out of place, nerdy, and blind.  Having a pair break while playing basketball during gym class made matters even worse!  Since there wasn’t any extra money to get another frame, I had to “make it work”.  Have you ever seen someone wearing glasses with the tape on the top corner of the frame?  Well, one those people happened to be me!  Didn’t this type of thing only exist on TV? Embarrassment, shame, and guilt swept over me as I walked around like this.  Then I discovered a more discreet way to fix the broken frame, super glue!

The Vogue glasses I currently wear now – I LOVE them! Model VO2359

Fast forward to 2011 and my glasses are not only a necessity, but a fashion statement.  Having some color or unique design to your eyewear makes all the difference!  Vogue Eyewear has made my last 2 pair of glasses including the current ones I wear now.  In 2008 it was time to select a new frame and I decided to branch out and add a pop of color to my face.  I headed to Lenscrafters and I picked out a two-toned navy-turquoise frame.

Striking a pose in Vogue Eyewear!

I must say these are the best glasses I have ever purchased!  I love the fact that they add some “hipness” to my overall look and that it’s an offset to the other colors or prints I wear.  Not tooting my own horn, but I get compliments on them all the time and if I had a $1 for every time I heard “I like your glasses”, Lenscrafters would be rich.

I encourage anyone who has to wear eyeglasses to opt for color, a cool shape and some spunk.  Long live fashionable frames!
