Gloves In A Bottle SPF creates an invisible shield/protection ( as a glove on your skin). It doesn’t allow the damaging effects of the SUN or any other irritants to get into you skin, plus it allows your skin to heal and keeps it’s own moisture. Even though it is only SPF15, because of the shielding property ( bonds to your skin) it doesn’t wash off as easy as other SPF products. I have been with this product to the water park with my 3 year old son and I had to only apply it once. It kept me and him through the day. It can be used on the FACE, BODY and Hands. Buy it at your local Kmart Pharmacy for $14 or any other fine independent pharmacies.

Deborah Mitchell’s New Skincare Line is HEAVEN

Posted on: June 16th, 2015


I am lucky to have gotten my hands on a few products from Deborah Mitchell’s New Skincare Line “heaven”. I especially like the New Edition Cleansing Cream. “It is the first bee venom cleanser in the World”. It is so gentle that I can wash my entire face, even my eyes without any stinging or irritation. This cleanser works beautifully. New Edition Cleansing Cream will cleanse your face and thoroughly clean any eye and eyebrow make-up from your face, leaving your skin clean and refreshed. New Edition Cleansing Cream is a fabulous anti-aging cleanser with a light and pleasant scent and is gentle enough for all ages. One of its best features it offers a natural botulinum injectable alternative in this cleanser.

As stated in their website, “Heaven by Deborah Mitchell is a luxurious range of anti-ageing, all-natural skincare containing organic ingredients, which have been developed for a radiant, flawless complexion and to help heal skin conditions, from blemishes to eczema.”
The Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel is just as amazing. I especially like serums, and this is the perfect compliment to the cleanser that I am using morning and night time. Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel contains organic Peppermint and Spearmint oils which gives the Clarifying Hydrogel a delightful scent. I have been using the Hydrogel in the morning as a primer and at night time after cleansing. The texture is light and quick drying but does not dry out your skin. My skin has been smooth and soft, never dry and oily. Especially since the weather here has been hot and humid, I need a primer/moisturizer to leave my skin dry but hydrated, and Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel does just that.

This Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel, like the New Edition Cleansing Cream, is suitable for all skin types. My 19-year-old daughter is also using it with me and experiences no dryness or greasiness on her face, she loves it. Deborah Mitchell’s New Skincare Collection “heaven” uses only natural and organic ingredients, with proprietary ingredients like ABEETOXIN, a bee venom that mimics Botox; this anti-aging line provides instant and long-lasting results.

You can get creative wearing belts this summer from leather classics to cloth braided designs with an accent color that “pops”. If done right, adding a belt like a Nautica belt design to a summer dress is a great way to change the silhouette.

The simple classic belts in block, stripe or neutral colours are more versatile and always wearable. They can be worn with multiple wardrobe items but of course, some outfits call for bold and dramatic statements and fashion belts offer the perfect way to create these. It is better to start off with a more classic belt if you are not a pro at this. Nautica Belts $39.50

You’ll have it “in the bag” this summer with My Other Bag Pouchettes a convenient zipper pouch with major “My Other Bag” style! My Other Bag pouchettes have a convenient zipper pouch .
