I'm loyal to certain "beauty" brands - especially skincare. I was first introduced to Laura Mercier Crème Brulee Hand Crème at the grand opening of Holt's in Vancouver last year. Although not a relatively new product, I stand by it! Crème Brulee travels with me wherever I go - even on the plane at 2 oz. With olive and grape seed oil your hands will never be more velvety.
Another tried and true is Avalon Organics Vitamin C Rejuvenating Oil-Free Moisturizer (also travel friendly at 2 0z). I was first introduced to this product in 2006 while spending some time in Pasadena, California. My skin had been going through some changes due to diet, stress and dare I say it, age. Avalon has replaced my dermatologist recommended Cliniderm.
