The Lipstick League – Week of 12.4.17
Question of the Week: What product is most helping your skin deal with the changing weather?
EauMG’s Answer: I’m going to sound like such a jerk for even bringing up something this expensive, but Valmont Prime Regenera II is like this thick, luscious balm that has saved my skin from a cold, dry NYC “why do I live here?” weather. I’m sure there are cheaper rich creams/balms that are just as good, but this one really
The Lipstick League – week of 12.5.16
Question of the Week: Name three skincare products (face and/or body) that are staples for you in cold weather months.
EauMG’s Answer: My cold weather staples are so boring. I like simple, nourishing products. For my body, I’m a huge fan of CeraVe Moisturizing Cream. There’s no way that my lips can go through winter without Aquaphor. When my skin needs extra moisture, I like to use Paula’s Choice Renewal Oil

I have reviewed quite a few Providence Perfume Co. perfumes on EauMG and I’m surprised that I’m just know getting around to reviewing the line’s body oil!
The Formula & My Experience: It’s a blend of apricot, sweet almond, safflower, aloe and jojoba. I have very dry skin and prefer oils as moisturizers. I love this formula because it is very nourishing but absorbs very quickly in comparison to other natural oils that I’ve used. My skin is literally left feeling silky and smooth… Continue reading | 6 Comments
