Here's a  really yummy gift, Farmhouse Fresh Strawberry Smash nourishing  body

 cream that smells good enough to eat, and it's made with live strawberry cells, it

 comes in a vintage glass jar with galvanized lid packed in a printed jute tote inscribed with

"Mushed-up stuff is better

for you." I picked one up for a friend

and ah, well, just might keep it and get another. It is irresistible. The company

also has a great Sweet Cream BodyMilk packaged in a 10 ounce glass

Cruet with glass stopper that also makes for the perfect present. I did it again,

bought one to give and kept it, my bad. But it  smells so good and is so rich

and creamy with Vitamin E, rice bran oil, Jojoba seed oil, almond oil and avocado

 and sesame oil rolled into one and it makes your skin feel fabulous. $26 at www.FarmHouseFreshGoods.com

cream for eyes

Stem Cell for the face?


It’s here and I’m excited. Just got mine today and began using it, so stay tuned.  It’s called Amatokin and it’s the hottest anti wrinkle available and the most controversial. It all began in 2005 as a mystery skin cream and consumers and retailers couldn’t wait to get their hands on it. Well now Voss Laboratories  of Salt Lake City, Utah,  and Paris, France, is marketing it for America and selling it at Bloomingdale’s New York 59th Street store.  It isn’t cheap at $173 for a month’s supply. But if it’s ass efficacious as they say, it’s worth every erased wrinkle. It’s still cheaper than Botox, too and you don’t have to go to a doctor to get it or apply it. I must confess my complexion has never looked better since I started using this two weeks ago. My deep frown lines are a mere shadow from when I began the regimen. While it's cheaper than Botox and you don't have to see a doctor to use it, it's still pricey, but folks, well worth it. Best results yet for severe facial problems like my deep frown reminders and lines under my eyes.
