So, perhaps I’m going a bit overboard in my love affair with oils, but I can’t help it! I’m starting to think there is an oil (or oil based product) out there for just about any purpose you might need it for.
I’ve known for years that the best time to moisturize your skin is while it’s wet; sealing in water while it’s still on your skin is the optimal way to maintain properly balanced and hydrated skin. Trouble for me is, I can never seem to get moisturizer on my skin straight out of the shower or bath. I either get distracted by my hubby or one of my girls, or I’m tending to the needs of my hair or face before I turn my attention to my body. So this morning, I had a revelation: What if I had a dry oil mist to spray as soon as I got out of the shower? Kind of as a base, to seal the moisture in? Then I could do whatever else I needed to do, and if I wanted to layer on more moisturizer later I could. Genius, right?
I was going to use Facebook and Twitter to ask if anyone had any recommendations as far as dry oil mists, and then I stumbled on to this little gem…
|Memorable Mists Trio; $29.50 on CarolsDaughter.com|
(Just in time for Mother’s Day) Carol’s Daughter has created a custom Mother's Day Gift Set: the Memorable Mists Trio. The set includes the Almond Cookie, Sugared Violets and Orange Ambrosia Dry Oil Mists to pamper mom (or any woman, really). These delectably scented mists will keep your skin moisturized and positively glowing. Each fragrance is wonderful on its own, but you can also blend them together in order to create your own custom scent. This limited-edition gift set will be available in Carol’s Daughter stores and CarolsDaughter.com.
Carol's Daughter is also inviting fans to celebrate their mothers with the "I AM Because You Are" competition, sponsored by Sprite. You can share the invaluable beauty lessons your mother has taught you by posting a note about it on the Carol's Daughter Facebook Wall. Here are the details:
Carol’s Daughter is rooted in family – in fact, founder Lisa Price named her celeb-adored brand after her mother. For Mother’s Day 2012, Carol’s Daughter invites fans to celebrate their mothers with the “I AM Because You Are” competition, sponsored by Sprite. The contest will allow fans the chance to describe the loving relationship they have with their mothers.
Fans will be able to access an exclusive Contest tab on the Carol’s Daughter Facebook page until May 13th, where they can share the invaluable beauty lessons their mothers taught them by posting a note about it to the wall. For each post, Carol’s Daughter will donate $1 to the Women’s Fund or American Heart Association. Carol’s Daughter Spokesbeauties Solange Knowles, Cassie Venture and Selita Ebanks will be featured in “I AM Because You Are” inspirational videos that will also be live on the Facebook page.
Based on which submission speaks to her the most, Lisa will choose one grand prize winner, who will receive a pampering all-expenses paid trip to a premier spa. The winner will be announced on Sunday, May 13th, 2012. In addition to the grand prize, there will be daily giveaways hosted on the Facebook tab, and you will have the chance to win coveted Carol’s Daughter products.
I’ve tried (and loved) some of Carol’s Daughter’s hair products, but I have yet to try anything from the skincare line. This gift set seems like the perfect introduction to it. Do you have any experience with Carol’s Daughter’s skincare? What’s your favorite product from the line? Are there any other dry oil mists that I should be on the lookout for? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Until next time…
