 The big problem with some celebrity products is that they have great marketing but no substance. Diana B is one of those cases.  The line is just a bunch of stuff thrown together with old claims, Hollywood producers, and PR behind it. 

There are new and innovative products that actually work with educated beauty professionals behind the products but you will never see them.  There simply isn’t enough money to promote great products, so the egomaniacs and production slobs that have money but no substance easily squash these people.

 Producers have nothing to do with the real and innovative products so most people do not hear about them.

Diana claims that her “stuff” is a miracle; well it would be a miracle if that garbage actually worked.
I bet if you looked closely at the un-retouched photos that you’d find that you’d be better off using Vaseline than Diana B and it would do a better job.

I recently tried shaving my legs with the Verbena Lime shaving collection from eshave. It came in this cute little green drawstring pouch.

 I read the instructions but here is my discovery and how I personally use this collection.

 I start with the eshave shave crème on my legs.  This gives enough razor glide so that my legs are smoother after I shave  and I have no nicks.


 After I shower, I use the oil on my heels, knees and elbows because it helps soften the roughest parts of my skin.  


Then I use the aftershave soother as an all-over moisturizer for my skin.  I use this on my face as well as my body.   The smell is refreshing;  it soaks into my skin and works as a primer under my makeup. I like the versatility of this collection.

  P.S.  it is not just for men.

Paradise Found


love.jpgdoes not begin to describe how much I love this Paradise Potion sugar scrub. I picked up the Vanilla-Raspberry scrub at the ISSE show and Wow! What a revelation in skin care. I’ve tried every salt known to the beauty industry but this is the first time I’ve tried a sugar scrub. If salt scrubs make your skin dry and break out then try these sugar potions. They are handmade by Melba with all natural ingredients. The scents are amazing.  My skin felt soft and smooth but not oily. 

 Retail Price $23.95
