L'Occitane's New Limited-Edition Shea Butter and Honey Collection Review/Giveaway

Happy Tuesday!  Is everyone bracing for some more snow?  This type of weather can definitely wreak havoc on the skin causing it to be dry and chapped.  Two out of three of my girls deal with this skin issue whenever the temps take a dip.  I have tried a variety of products and never really found anything that met my approval, until now.
I was recently presented with a skin lotion line by L'Occitane, their limited-edition Shea Butter and Honey Collection.  It's definitely not just for babies in my opinion.  This stuff is fabulous on my girls' skin and for myself, I might add.  The products I tried are from the mom and baby line.

As previously mentioned, cold air and harsh winds mean dry, tight skin from head to toe. L’Occitane’s NEW limited-edition Shea Butter & Honey Collection will leave skin that feels as soft as silk, smells sweet as honey, and that is truly, effectively protected. Shea Butter will nourish and protect the skin against all types of daily damage, while honey will soften and comfort even the most sensitive skin. The NEW collection includes:
  • Honey Whipped Body Cream ($22):air has been incorporated into this delicate texture, making it reminiscent of the whipped desserts we loved as children…As light as air and incredibly soft to the touch, it melts onto the skin like a caress.
  • Honey Foaming Gel ($20):with a glowing golden color and a velvety fluid texture, this shower honey will cleanse the skin with the gentlest touch.
  • Shea Honey Hand Cream ($10):the famous L’OCCITANE Hand Cream made with 20% Shea Butter is now infusedwith a subtle honey scent.
  • Honey Shea Butter ($10):an ultra-nourishing spot treatment to soften even the driest skin. Use on elbows, lips, cuticles, feet, and even hair!
My absolute favorite is the Honey Whipped Body Cream.  It really hits the spot for those dry skin moments.
The first person to email me at will receive one of the products mentioned above.  Just put L'Occitane in the subject line and ask if you are the first.  Ready, Set, Email!
To view or purchase any of L"Occitane's products, click HERE.

LaTasha Reed, It Works! Independent Distributor, would like to giveaway an Ultimate Body Applicator to one of our readers.  I can honestly say that I have never tried this product, but would love to try it in the future.  Multiple pregnancies can definitely change a body.  I have always been curious about this particular product. Does it really work? Here is a little info about the body applicator before entering the giveaway!

"This body-slimming applicator is infused with all natural botanical formula that is absorbed through the skin, and by a special, unique process, to detoxify our body and tighten, firm, and tone our skin. 
The applicator also works as an anti-inflammatory and over-all skin appearance. It is worn for a minimum if 45 minutes and actually continues to process for 72 hours after it is removed. Everybody's skin processes differently. Some medications store in your cells for a long time and it may take longer to process. This is a healthy cleanse for your body. You are actually feeding your body something healthy!
You can put the applicator on any part of your body to spot reduce and see immediate results. This is a amazing product and is cheaper than lipo!"

Vans Custom Culture-Taking Place at a High School Near You!

Happy Wednesday Michigan moms!  Do you have a high schooler or know of a high schooler that beams creativity?  This event may be something of interest to them.  Van's Custom Culture kicked off registration right here in Michigan.

Click Image to Zoom In
What is Vans Custom Culture? The Vans Custom Culture competition inspires high school students across the U.S. to embrace their creativity. In light of decreased educational funding, Vans created this phenomenally-cool project to help ignite creativity and raise funds and awareness for the importance of ART in high schools all over the US. Since 2010, Vans has hosted a nationwide event called Custom Culture where high school students ‘design their own VANS’- the project has opened the doors to thousands of students across the US to compete and create masterpieces of art from a pair of traditional Vans shoes. The winner is awarded $50,000 toward their high school art program.

Registration kicked-off in Michigan January 2, 2013 - February 11, 2013. How it works is high school art programs can register for the 2013 competition on the Vans Custom Culture website ( After registration, each school will be tasked with customizing four favorite Vans styles: the Old Skool, 106 Vulcanized, Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On. Students are charged with designing each pair of shoes to fit within one of three themes representing the Vans lifestyle, including action sports, art and music and then also a fourth “local flavor” theme reflecting regional inspiration.

UPDATE: The 2013 application window closed last week, but you can design your own Vans online here. Choose your style, then play with patterns and color combos for laces, linings and tongues for only $65/pair!
After an internal Vans team narrows down the selection, the public will have the opportunity to vote through the Vans Custom Culture website from April 22 to May 13, 2013. The top five schools will be invited to New York City to showcase their designs for the crowd and celebrity judges at a special event in June2013, where the grand prize winner will be announced.
In March 2013, the designs created by 2012 Vans Custom Culture winners Rio Rancho High School (Rio Ranch, NM) will go on sale at Vans and Journeys stores as well as the Vans online shop. Rio Rancho claimed the $50,000 prize last year as well as Journeys’ “Local Attitude” award when their designs were recognized amongst the nearly 900 participants.
