May is a special time where we get to celebrate being a woman if we are mothers, or spoil the mothers we are lucky to have in our lives. What better way to tell your friends and family you appreciate them than you give them something they can really indulge in and make them feel rejuvenated. Figs & Rouge nourishing and soothing, multi-tasking hand cream and lip balms will do just that by revitalizing their dry hands and lips. With brightly colored fun packages, these are just the items to get anyone's lips and skin back to their smooth, natural conditions.

The Figs & Rouge hand cream uses a unique non-greasy formula to smooth and soften your hands and give you the youthful appearance that your hands should all have. The rich formula immediately works to repair cuticles and nourish finger nails. The coco rose scent has a light and refreshing smell that will last for hours without ever smelling overpowering. This cream is smooth going on, and you only need a small amount to go a long way. The cream absorbs into your skin and cuticles quickly and will leave your hands with a very hydrated, non- greasy feeling.

Made from cocoa butter, ginseng and algae, the cream not only moisturizes, but is multi-tasking by protecting your hands from being further damaged by weather and other elements. The packaging is fun, bold and beautiful and will fit perfectly in any purse to go everywhere with you or would make an excellent gift for our mom's on mothers' day.

Mark Hill; Twice British Hairdresser of the Year, Twice International Hairdresser of the year and Most Outstanding Hairdresser of a Generation, truly a man to be reckoned with. After receiving Mark Hill “Gorgeous”: Work It Girl! Shine, Protect and Control Spray and Hot Glam Extreme Heat Protection Spray in their tall funky bottles, I wanted to know a bit about the man. I love products from the UK, as the standards for ingredients are quite high. Once I found out that this man is practically a legend in the Hair Care realm, I was extremely anxious to test his products, and I was not disappointed in the least.

Mark Hill Hot glam heat protection sprayWe all know that excessive heat can and does damage hair. My naturally curly hair look s best when I wash it, scrunch with a little product and allow to air dry. That is, I find, the best way to prevent frizz. However, there are times when I need a more polished look, and I grab my flat iron and go to town. I know that it is essential to use a heat spray, though I find that some leave buildup, or don’t actually protect the hair (oh, my! Where is that smoke coming from??). Mark Hill’s Gorgeous! Hot Glam Extreme Heat Protection Spray does the trick. Safe to use with heated appliances up to 235 degrees, this is the perfect spray for the flat iron user. This spray can be used on wet or dry hair (I like to use before blowdrying as well), and is light and non-greasy. My hair felt soft, shiny and never weighed down!

Mark Hill Work it girl Shine protect and controlI love 2 for 1s, they always seem to make my life easier. Which is why Mark Hill Gorgeous! Work It Girl! Shine, Protect and Control Spray is such an amazing product. It functions as a 2 for in that it protects hair while styling with heat tools, but also provides great texture and hold like a hairspray. With amazing ingredients such as Bamboo/Fern Extract and Keravis, hair is left strengthened inside and out. Panthenol and silk protein add shine and moisture control, keeping frizzies at bay. After flat ironing, my hair felt soft and smooth, and had lots of shine! I love that I can also use this product as a hairspray, creating lift at my roots. It’s perfect for travel, when you don’t want to bring an arsenal of products with you. I also love how this product doesn’t leave buildup in my hair, and can be used every day, even though I only wash my hair 2-3 times per week, especially when I flat iron. I was able to brush the product easily out of my hair, and had no worries of flaking or build up!!!

I urge you to check out Mark Hill’s extensive line of hair care products. He offers something for everyone. If I ever get a chance to visit London, I might even pop into one of his extremely lush salons for a look. I also have to mention that Mark Hill Loves his mom, and mentions her when he talks about all of his amazing accomplishments. Love it!!

Hand cream and lip balm, two items that have been a necessity for me during these colder, seemingly never ending, winter months. So when this next duo came into the office, I had no reservations in checking it out. 

EraClea Simply Perfect Hand Cream 3.2.14EraClea Simply Perfect Hand Cream

I use hand creams a lot. I have one in my bag, on my dresser, and on my desk. With the cold weather outside, and the heat inside, my skin (especially my hands) gets very dry. Needless to say, I've tried a good amount of hand creams. The EraClea Simply Perfect Hand Cream is a great hand cream to add to my collection. This hand cream contains lipids & vitamins so that it hydrates for up to 8 hours. With this intense hydration, the cream still absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy residue. It's not too thick and spreads easily while still providing soothing moisture. EraClea uses the HylaSpongeSystem in this hand cream, a hyalronic acid complex, that leads to the smooth, hydrated and non greasy results. It's also the perfect size to throw in my bag and retrieve whenever I need it!

EraClea Ever Moist Lip Balm 3.2.14EraClea Ever-Moist Lip Balm

This a trusty lip balm and will get the job done. This lip balm will repair those dry and chapped lips; shea butter, jojoba & antioxidants, condition your lips. You're left with lips that look and feel smooth and are hydrated and supple. What I liked about this lip balm is that even though it's more of a liquidy balm, I still felt that it was conditioning and stayed on my lips. Other liquidy balms can sometimes feel like they fall apart on your lips and disappear. But with the hand cream & this balm EraClea provides two trusty products you can count on!

Avalon Organics has some really nice products, their wrinkle smoothing lotion is hydrating and firming.

I have been looking to create a hydrated dewy complexion this fall, but it is not so easy to come by. In order to achieve the true appearance of the hydrated complexion, I have chosen to focus on the skincare products that I have been using rather than makeup (makeup will only give me a slight imitation of the dewy look I'm aiming for). When I looked closely at the ASAP products that came into the Certified Fabulous office, I knew they would be the perfect fit to help achieve the desired hydrated dewy complexion! A little bit about the brand - ASAP is the leading cosmeceutical skin care company in Australia1. Their products are made in Australia from environmentally friendly ingredients that contain:

- no harmful chemicals

- no harsh ingredients

- no artificial fragrances

- no animal derivatives
