Recent Temptations

There will always be temptations. But I've included a couple of the pampering temptations for the body and senses this time.

Body Lotion by DaLish Cosmetics

This lotion is not your ordinary lotion. It comes is a jar, has the consistency of a cream and feels like the most moisturizing souffle-textured cream. This lotion just feels lovely on the skin ... I've tried plenty.

It's all natural (perfect for vegans) and contains wonderful products like avacado, shea, vitamin e and camillia oil (a key ingredient in Shu Uemura's famous Essence Absolue).  It's very soothing.  I have very sensitive, eczema-prone skin and this lotion does not irritate it at all.

You can buy it individually or purchase it as a set, along with the Dead Sea Salt Scrub.  The flavors are Grapefruit Medley, Coconut, Lavender, and Strawberry.

DaLish also has cosmetics - hence the name DaLish Cosmetics.  DaLish's line includes foundation, concealer, blush, mascara, eye liner & shadow, glosses plus face creams(including the Mermaid's Secret on the right).

Melanie, the founder/creator/owner, was kind enough to send me makeup samples when I mentioned my plans to feature the lotion.   To see more, go to: dalishcosmetics

Tom Ford's Black Orchid

While trolling around in the local Sephora, I decided to explore the scents.  I fell head-over-heels in love with this exotic, sensual scent.
Here's the description from Sephora:

The exclusive and über-rare TOM FORD black orchid is the show-stopping note in this incredibly luxurious scent. While sultry woods and rich dark accords help to bring out the skin's natural perfume, the jet black, art deco-inspired bottle adds to the fragrance's overall glamour.

Whatever! I just fell in love and had to get it.  I've been wearing it faithfully since that day.
