Summer is here. Well, for most people. For the rest of us who are suffering through the last vestiges of ‘spring,’ the anticipation of warm weather is unbearable.
But at least we have time to prepare.
Recently we were ‘teased’ about the season to come with an invitation to Getting Gorgeous, an expo of great products for summer beauty and fun. So, before you head to the drug store to stock up on sunscreen and beach chairs, here’s what we learned.
Foster Grant offers a huge array of very affordable shades in great styles.Protect your eyes, too.
When it does come to skin, look good AND be protected: there’s a whole slew of new BB creams–and yes, we had to ask what the heck is BB cream??? BB stands for beauty balm, a concoction of everything that is good for your skin in all in a single tube. BBs come in all shades, sizes and prices. CVS put out an array for us.
Get a deal on BB, sunscreen and everything else you need: CVS enticed us to join their beauty club. Well, actually, since we’re already a CVS ExtraCare member we’re automatically Beauty Club members too. As long as we use the ExtraCare card at purchase we qualify for Beauty Club rewards. Cool.
Getting to the beach is the goal, and getting there fast is a bonus. Chevrolet challenged us to the task by sponsoring a speed packing challenge. Judy Antell gave it a go, loading up a Chevy Traverse. And, look at all the great gear that Traverse Packing Challenge winners Nichol Perez and Maria Colacowalked away with!
After the beach, Dial wants to make it fun for kids to play in the tub, so they’ve come up with a fun array of body washes designed to entice kids.
Also on display were some cool new shoes from New Balance. Ballet flats with sneaker soles, these are great for days at Disney, school field trips or trekking through the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In style, not in sneakers.
Jade & Jasper. Chic, pretty, just enough bling, not a lot of cash, this line of jewelry is available on line or through sales reps who sell at parties. Reason to get gussied up and get your summer on.And speaking of style, we really loved the jewelry on display from
