Last Minute Gifts For Your Man This Valentine’s Day

A great Valentine for your man can be something that benefits you as well.  Think of a nice scent, products for a close shave or a nice lip balm to keep his lips soft (V-Day kisses)!

Here are some really nice products to get him.  And you can find most of these in the store — such as Sephora, Macy’s, Nordstroms or other department or beauty specialty stores:

Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 - Rouge

LACOSTE’s EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Rouge ($62 USD) is the scent to wear this Valentine’s Day.  Fiery and invigorating, the fragrance harvests a triple blend of spices at the heart to create this robust scent.  Spicy Mandarin liqueur, Madagascan black pepper, and Indian ginger provide a warm welcome from the cold weather.  A masculine and zesty fragrance that can only be described as energetic is ideal for the always on-the-go guy.

Available at fine department stores and Sephora stores near you.

BOSS BOTTLED NIGHT

The BOSS man is primed to succeed—competitive, driven, and ambitious. His daily preparation rituals are integral to his personal quest for success and BOSS has become an established part of his daily armor. BOSS BOTTLED NIGHT ($56 1.6 oz, $70 3.3 oz) is destined to become his secret after-dark weapon, instilling him with the same compelling presence that underpins his success by day. The scent features an intensely seductive composition of purposeful, aromatic top notes combined with a rich, woody base.

The top notes combine the contrasting energies of bittersweet birch leaves with the natural aromatic freshness of lavender, finished with a touch of lemon leaves. The heart of the fragrance, blended with a new type of masculine florals, combines green and nutty cardamom with a synthesis of sweet jasmine and African violet. A new accord at the base, Louro Amarelo, replicates a rich and exotic new wood note discovered in the Amazon. It lends body to the fragrance, as well as a natural energy when finished with a traditional musk and sandalwood infusion.

Available at fine department stores and Sephora stores near you.

The Art of Shaving Full-Size Kit in Sandalwood

The Art of Shaving’s Full Size Kit in Sandalwood ($115 USD)will guarantee that your guy’s face will be soft and smooth for any up close and personal action that may ensue this Valentine’s Day.  Known for having an alluring effect on the opposite sex, the Sandalwood kit has everything men need for healthy skin and a close, comfortable shave while helping prevent ingrown hairs and irritation.  As an aphrodisiac, with its strong aroma and ability to soothe, the Sandalwood kit gives men that “extra something” on this special day.

Available at www.theartofshaving.com

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm Introduces New Flavors!

Jack Black Lip Balm

Lip balms are awesome — but lip balms with SPF are even better. Not only are you moisturizing, but you are protecting your delicate lip area. Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balms ($7.50 USD) have a whopping SPF 25 that helps protect from sun and wind!

Enriched with superior lip conditioners and antioxidants, these emollient balms calm, protect and relieve dry, chapped, irritated lips. Unlike waxy sticks, the unique formulas penetrate quickly to provide instant relief.

Flavors include:

New! Black Tea & Blackberry – Smooth and subtly sweet with powerful antioxidants

New! Grapefruit & Ginger – Fresh, subtly citrus and energizing

Lemon & Chamomile – Mellow and refreshing to calm and soothe

Natural Mint & Shea Butter – Clean and tingly to freshen breath

Vanilla & Lavender – Herbal, soothing and healing

I have tried the Lemon & Chamomile, which smells fresh and soothing. And it feels so smooth on and it is not greasy, which a lot of cream balms can be. I think this is a great buy — the product is definitely worth the price!

Availability: Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm is available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue and at www.getjackblack.com. Enjoy!

Smashbox Cosmetics In Bloom Collection

Smashbox Cosmetics In Bloom Collection

I love spring makeup because of its ability to freshen and brighten my pale winter skin. The colors this season are romantic and much softer than the bold winter hues.

A fab collection that embodies the new lovely spring colors is the In Bloom collection from Smashbox Cosmetics. The look on the spring runways were delicate and girly –from radiant, lit-from-within skin to hazy, neutral eyes and glossy nude pouts. With light, luminous looks for eyes, cheeks, lips and skin, In Bloom is your ultimate spring beauty update.

The In Bloom Collection includes:

IN BLOOM EYE SHADOW PALETTE & BRUSH ($48.00 USD value $180.00 )-ballet pink, lavender grey, golden pink, warm taupe, bone, soft violet, marine blue, shimmering copper, moss, nude — Spring beauty is in full bloom with this ten shade palette of ultra-luxe shimmers and wearable mattes, arranged vertically in duos for effortless customization. Apply with the included eye shadow brush for a flawless finish.

CREAM CHEEK DUO in BLUSHING/PEONY ($26.00 USD) -soft pink/bright pink — This duo of creamy, rose shades offers a sheer natural flush to cheeks and lips anytime, anywhere. Wear alone or pair together for a rush of custom color. Apply with fingertips or a Foundation Brush and blend.

SOFT FOCUS POWDER EYE LINER ($22.00 USD each) -heather grey or dark brown — This innovative powder formula creates a soft smoldering look in seconds. Before using, shake well and tap off any excess powder before lining the lashline.

LIMITLESS LONG WEAR LIP GLOSS WITH SPF 15 ($21.00 USD each)-Timeless (soft pink) or Endless Kiss(coral pink) — Get juicy color and long-lasting shine with added pout protection from SPF 15. Packed with vitamins and minerals, this unique formula benefits and boosts lips. Apply to bare lips or layer over your favorite Smashbox lipstick for gorgeous color and shine that lasts up to six hours.

ARTIFICIAL LIGHT LUMINIZING POWDER ($20.00 USD) -shimmering soft nude — Inspired by top-selling Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion, this soft shimmering powder highlights and brightens for a radiant glow. Apply to inner corners of eyes, down the bridge of nose, above brows and to the tops of cheekbones with the targeted applicator. It can also be mixed with body lotion and applied to arms, legs and décolleté for a subtle shimmer.

I have tested the Timeless lip gloss and the cheek duo. Both products give beautiful color. The lip gloss is sheer and so pretty on. It is a bit sticky, but does last a long time and is moisturizing on dry lips. I also love that it includes SPF, which is perfect for sunny spring and summer days.  The cheek duo looks brighter in the pan then on the face. It is so soft and pretty on. I love the glow that cream blush gives, plus you can put it on your lips for a pretty monochromatic look.

WHERE TO FIND IT: Smashbox.com, Sephora, Sephora inside JCPenny, Ulta, Nordstrom, Beauty.com, and select Macy’s — Enjoy!
