Calgon Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Bath Fizzies take you away!

There's nothing like a good soak after a long summer day -  made even better when you throw in a Calgon Bath Fizzy - it improves circulation, soothes sore muscles and minor aches and pains away as well as detoxifies skin from all that sun! They come in a bunch of amazing scents but this is the one that screams summer to me:

Calgon Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Bath Fizzies - 8 x 60g - $7.99 - revitalize mind and body with a fragrant, moisturizing soak scented with the dazzle of island sunshine and the exhilarating rush of exotic fruit while delivering skin softening Vitamin E.

Of course nobody wants to take a hot bath in the summer and while after a long, hot day a cold bath may seem tempting but would be most unpleasant so stick with tepid water - it will actually cool you down better then a cold bath would!

Available at drugstores across Canada.

Kiss Professional Luxe Creamy Lip Gloss - with swatches!

Kiss Professional Luxe Creamy Lip Gloss - $8.99 - in 14 shades: Sorbet Pink, Baileys Vanilla, Cappuccino, Coral Reef, Mango Lover, Redilicious, Cherry Rush, Pomegranate, Barbie Pink, Pink Fusion, Hot Magenta, Blushing Lavender, Violet Fetal, Flirty Purple - a luxuriously rich and creamy gloss that hugs your lips for comfortable wear with a high shine finish and is infused with vitamin E to hydrate lips.
Barbie Pink

The shades have nice pigmentation but keep in mind they probably won't look as dark/bright as they look in the tube - and they feel really nice on, not as stay-proof as liquid lipsticks of course but the trade-off is there is none of the tackiness that you can get from long lasting formulas!
