Katie Holmes has me Confused

Let it be known that Katie Holmes is one of my faves!  Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, and a few others. 


So what's up with Katie?  Do you think she is prego?  It seems like she had a little to hide in her latest trenchcoat and winter coat coverups in Sundance.  She has been sporting the messy, cover it all up look for several months now.  I checked and there aren't many pictures of her lately in form fitting tops.  I hope it's true!

Also, I am glad she is growing her hair out again.  I can't wait to see her new styles in the upcoming months.

Skin MD Natural Review and Contest


I just discovered a great new moisturizer. One that can be trusted on my skin, as well as my child's skin!

I have to admit, my boys were a little worried to try this new moisturizer. They saw a new bottle and it didn't have flowers or fluffy characters on it. They both have very sensitive skin and even baby lotions burn their skin. They both had red blotches on the insides of their arms due to the harsh winter air and using kid's perfumed-filled body wash. When I applied the Skin MD Natural, they didn't scream or flinch. It was just a cool, "Ahhhh" from relief. The next day, my four year old actually brought it to me to apply on his legs. Finally, a lotion that can be used on the entire family!

Skin MD Natural is different because it holds in your skin's natural moisture to allow itself to heal. Using conventional, artificial moisturizers just add moisture to the surface of the skin. This is just a temporary fix to the problem of dry skin - not a permanent solution. Over time, your skin will be fooled and actually produce less of its own natural oils, thinking the skin has enough moisture. Skin MD Natural can break this dry skin cycle!

Skin MD Natural is made in the US, free of harmful fragrances, parabens, and colorants. It is hypoallergenic, dermatologist recommended, and not tested on animals. It is a shielding lotion that bonds with the outer layer of skin to keep irritants out and moisture in.

Review of my testing of the product:
This lotion goes on smoothly and is light.  It is easily absorbed into your skin and does not leave a greasy feeling.  It is so sensitive that it can be used on any type of skin - even a child's skin.  I was thoroughly impressed with this product and plan on using it in place of my regular lotion. 

I was happy to find on the website that there was a store locator and they sell it here.  There is no prescription necessary either so it is available to anyone.  You can also order it on the website if they do not offer it in your town.

Would you like to win a free bottle of Skin MD Natural?  To enter, simply leave a comment with the name of lotion you use or which lotion you have found to not help dry skin.  Leave your name or codename too in case you win!  One entry per person and open to US residents only.  The contest ends Saturday, January 30, 2010 at 11:59MST and the winner will be announced on 1/31/10.  Good luck!

purminerals mist review


I got this awesome mist from purminerals from my sister for Christmas.  Loving it!  It is called purminerals Fulvic Mineral Mist.  I use it in the morning to wake up my face or after a shower to refresh my face and body.  It does not make me break out and smells wonderful!  Run to your local ULTA and try it out for yourself with their tester.  I bet you will be sold too!

Since I live in the desert, this does not replace my moisturizer.  Use with lotion or cream.

Enjoy and spritz away!

Description: With over 70 essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids, this soothing hydration treatment encourages your skin to absorb and retain vital moisture. The active ingredient, Fulvic Acid, is derived from ancient plant beds, affording it an outrageously high mineral content. Fulvic Acid assists in every stage of cellular rejuvenation, including repair of damaged cells, neutralization of toxins and enhanced transport of nutrients to skin cells. Mineral Mist leaves you with a beautiful, radiantly moist finish and the invigorating scent of all natural citrus oil will awaken your senses.

To Use: Mist on your entire body after your shower or bath and also throughout the day to hydrate tired, dry or stressed skin. Mineral Mist is also the perfect way to add a radiant, moist glow to mineral makeup.


Pür Tip: Keep a bottle handy all day to perk up and refresh throughout the day, especially during air travel or dry conditions.


Ingredients: Fulvic Acid, Purified Water (Aqua), Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Oil, Litsea Cubeba Fruit Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil.
