Moisturize your lips with fun products from Softlips, Maybelline and Mary Kay!

Softlips Cube - $4.99 - in Berry Bliss and Vanilla Bean - with lip perfecting technology that delivers 5 lip loving benefits: hydrates - with shea butter to restore moisture; replenishes - with vitamins A, C & E; smoothes - with rich emollients to leave lips silky and soft; protects - with long lasting moisture; and adds shine - for a perfect, radiant finish.

It was only a matter time before someone knocked off the eos balm design - only in a cube instead of round case. There are a few small differences between the two:  the eos formula is all natural, Softlips isn't; there is a lot more choice in flavours with eos; and the Softlips balm adds a bit of a shine so glides on a lot easier then eos does due to it.

Available at major drug, mass and grocery retailers across Canada.
Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal - $4.99 - in 6 shimmery shades: Twinkling Taupe, Mirrored Mauve, Pink Quartz, Crystal Kiss, Gleaming Coral and Beam Of Blush - of reflective colours that are infused with pearls and micro crystal particles for smooth, soft lips with a healthy, natural glow and a hint of colour.

Mary Kay Little Gifts Lip Balm Set - $20 - limited edition set of 3 balms includes Vanilla Berry, Vanilla Mint and Vanilla - with the same great formula as the Satin Lips Balm - perfect for dry, thirsty lips!

Cover FX CC Cream Time Release Tinted Treatment - 30ml - $45 - in 10 shades that are organized in such a way as to make it really easy to find your skin's match - just decide on your underlying skintone: pink, neutral or golden; and from that series pick the perfect shade:

Vera Wang Princess Power - 50ml EDT - $49 - is for girls who are cool and stylish without too much effort. The fragrance is apparently one of a cheerful spirit, which is projected in its vivid and colorful bottle and packaging.

Moisturize and protect from head to toe with Eucerin!

The most common excuse I hear for people not applying sunscreen is that it's too much bother to apply both a moisturizer and a sunscreen - now thanks to the Eucerin Daily Protection line there are no more excuses - with moisturizers for both face and body with sunscreen built right in!

Eucerin Daily Protection Moisturizing Face Lotion SPF 30 - 59ml - $15.49 - with a fast-absorbing, non-greasy, non-comedogenic formula to moisturize and protect skin from daily sun exposure with gentle broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 30 that helps defend against long-term sun damage and provides 24-hour skin moisturization.

Eucerin Daily Protection Moisturizing Body Lotion SPF 15 - 500ml - $15.99 - with a non-greasy formula that moisturizes and protects skin from daily sun exposure with broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15 to help protect the skin from sunburn and provides 24-hour skin moisturization.

This is a great everyday body moisturizer for short periods outside but if you are going to be out in the direct sun, like at the beach, you'll need your sunscreen with an SPF 30 at least!

Both are dermatologist recommended, fragrance free and great for all skin types, even sensitive!
