Is it just me or does lotion and Summer not go together. It seems that when I step outside the house fully moisturized I start sweating lotion within the first 20 minutes of being outside!! It's gross but true. So I was reading an article about Aloe Vera Gel and its uses. And the person writing the article used it to moisturize her skin with pretty decent results.This person lives in the Southwest ( which is very dry). She said the aloe vera gel made her skin supple and ready to receive moisture.This got me to thinking. Aloe Vera gel might be the cure to my icky situation.Unlike the writer I live in Southeast Texas, where it is so humid you'd think you were in the Amazon. Aloe Vera is light and I've used it after sun exposure. I never thought to use it in place of lotion.This is something I will definitely be trying! So what about you? Do you have the same problem? How do you cope?Read More »from Gel Instead of Lotion: If you live in a Humid Climate This Might Save You!

I love this look! When I think of summer I think of warm, buttery skin. I love using baking soda as an exfoliate. It's so inexpensive and effective! I'm still trying to figure out the best skin moisturizer for luminous skin. I think a body oil would be my best bet, or lots of shea and cocoa butter. Johnson & Johnson's is good, but are there any other body oils that make skin glow? What are your favorite products?
Guerlain has recently released a new liquid blush called 'Guerlain Russian Doll Radiant Blush'. It retails around $47. Has anyone tried this blush? I am dying to try it. It said that you only need one dab for both cheeks.

I have short curly hair (think Eva Pigford) and I am planning to color my hair light auburn. I don't use sulfates and silicones in my hair so I am wondering what products I can use in my hair that will keep it from fading? Does any one know if any tips to keeping my hair red? What products??
