Let The Beauty Tweets Begin

Hi guys,

I just got twitter and would love if you were all my friends on twitter. So follow me 🙂 @UrSkinALicious

It’s a great way to keep up with all beauty news, tips, and tricks


Shop Sabon

For those of you wondering where you can buy Sabon products, just visit their website Sabon .

You can shop online or you can search for the location nearest to you, because honestly what’s more fun than actually doing the shopping yourself and trying out everything =)

Beauty Quickie

We don’t always have the money to make the weekly hair appointment. So next time you do go to the salon pay attention to what your stylists does, and even ask them for some tips on things you can do yourself at home. With practice you can get a decent blow out at home.


I’ve been blow drying my own hair for years now. The only time I go to the salon is to get a trim or when I’m doing something major to my hair. If you’ve never done your own hair it might seem impossible to get the hang of it, but you will eventually. Like anything else it takes practice. And will save you money.

Spa for your Lips

Your lips need to be pampered just as much as any other part of the body. We don’t only have to worry about them being chapped in the winter, but the sun does some damage to them as well. While at the beach I obsessed over protecting my skin from the sun and didn’t give much thought to my lips. Later in the day I paid the price for my mistake. My lips felt a little sunburned and I had to constantly apply lip balm to ease the discomfort. Thanks to a little routine I followed for the next couple of days they felt extra smooth soon after.

Every night I exfoliated my lips. You can use any lip exfoliator. I love how Kiss Me Exfoliating Lip Scrub from Philosophy works. You just leave it on for up to 3 minutes and wah-lah smooth lips.  231313_fpx.tif

My favorite chap stick is Burt’s Bees, but “desperate measure calls for desperate actions”. I opted for a second balm on top of that one. I started using C.O. BIGELOW’s Rose Salve and I love it.

If you’re applying self tanners on your own, it can be really annoying to get it off of the palms of your hands. By applying moisturizers to your hands it will prevent them from absorbing the tanning products. Making it easier to wash off whatever does remain. 🙂

Quick tip on what to do with all the extra shampoo and conditioner bottles that haven’t quite finished. Put it to good use. You can use the shampoo to wash your delicates. Since conditioner softens her hair, you can use the conditioner in the place of shaving cream. It’s kind of like killing two birds with one stone. The shampoo doesn’t go to waste and you don’t have to buy more shaving cream just yet ;). 


Need a Quickie…

So you’re about to be late to work or class and you have absolutely no time for anything. Here’s the quickie that will make you look cute regardless:

Grab an eyelash curler, clamp those lashes and your eyes will instantly look wider. Don’t forget to apply mascara afterwards to keep the look.

Then just put on some bronzer or blush (which ever you prefer), some lip gloss, and you’re good to go.
