Lip Balms for Autumn/Winter



How cute are these lip balms? I am so loving the bright colours.

I love my lip balms. I use them quite a lot, even in the Summer, but especially in the Autumn/Winter months. I suffer from very dry lips (who doesn’t) in the cold months, thanks to the cold air and central heating, so I like to have my lips properly moisturised with good quality lip balms. I have fallen crazy in love with the oils, shea butter and organic lip balms from Evolution of Smooth (EOS). They are great to have in your purses, briefcases or backpacks. The products are made to moisten any dry lips with their antioxidant rich and all-natural formula. They protect and treat dry lips perfectly, which is just what I will be needing this Autumn/Winter season.


Passion Fruit, Summer Fruit, Sweet Mint, Pomegranate Raspberry, Blueberry Acai, Strawberry Sorbet, Honeysuckle Honeydew and Medicated Tangerine smooth sphere lip balms are the different organic lip balms from Evolution of Smooth. The Lip Balm range also includes Vanilla Mint, Coconut Milk and EOS Blackberry Nectar Lip Balm are the visibly soft smooth spheres. EOS also recently came out with Sheer Pink or Pearl shimmer smooth sphere lip balms, however the shimmer options are out of stock at the moment.


The Evolution of Smooth Lip Balm is perfect for anyone struggling with dry lips. It contains healthy ingredients. The round egg-like shape is really pretty and compact, which makes it far easier to find in a bag. The EOS spheres are easy to find by just reaching into a bag, thanks to the odd shape. With typical lip balm products that come in a tube, unless you have a small compartment in your bag to store the lip balms, you have to nearly dump out your entire bag to get out the tube out. Trust me, it has happened to me so many times now, especially with big bags. I am grateful my EOS Lip Balm is easy to reach when I need it.

A Sense for Scents: A Roundup of the Best Scents in Hand Lotions



The adage “put your best foot forward” is a bit misleading because it is, in fact, our hands that are extended first. Whether it’s a handshake, a wave, or the ever-so-underrated high-five, our hands are seen far more than our feet ever will be. The highlight of my skincare routine is hydration, especially the hands. My favourite part about lotions is the scents, of course. I love food-based scents far more than those derived from flowers. Perhaps it is my inner foodie that desires to smell like food. Who knows? The sense of smell and the brain are intricately linked. A whiff can transport you to a memory you perhaps had once forgotten, evoke an emotion, or be a calming reminder of someone you love. Here is a sampling of some of my favourite hand lotion scents:

#1 Apricot: Apricot is a favourite because it immediately reminds me of my mother. She is a true lady in every sense of the word. Like her, when the apricot scent enters the room, you are every bit aware of its presence, but it is never overpowering. It is also a delicate scent that is affable to even those who prefer lotions of the unscented variety.

#2 Cucumber: Cucumber is such a fun smell. It boasts a crispness that’s both sweet and refreshing. I find this scent most appropriate for the daytime. Cucumber is certainly the wildcard of the group. It pairs well with just about any other scent. It can amplify the aroma of a more muted scent or tone down a very dominant fragrance. Currently my favorite Cucumber-scented lotion on the market is made by Evolution of Smooth. If you want to check it out you can find it here.

#3 Vanilla: Whether we’re talking cake, ice cream, or lotion, you can never go wrong with a classic vanilla. Depending on the vanilla, it can be very light or quite powerful, especially when blended with another scent. For me, the best vanilla is somewhere in between. It’s certainly noticeable but not headache wrenching. I love vanilla in the winter. It compliments the cold weather and is a fragrance equivalent to an elegant winter white.

#4 Lemon: Ahhh! Nothing makes me feel quite the way the scent of lemon does. There’s a reason it is always a scent option in household cleaners. This smell on your hands just screams, “clean!” It rouses fond memories of Saturday-morning chores and summer lemonade. The citrus tingle makes your hands feel so revitalized and full of energy.
