Bella’s Beauty Boosters: October Edition

Bella’s AVON giveaway got such a great response from The Not-So-Blog readers, that I decided to ask Bella to share monthly “Beauty Boosters” so we can all keep up with the great products she has to offer.  So with no further ado, I introduce:

Bella’s Beauty Boosters!


October, as everyone knows, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  By the end of 2009, Avon will have raised over $700 MILLION dollars for the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade! WOW! With all of the awareness out there, lets just hope a cure is found soon. This gorgeous tote, designed exclusively for Avon by Merimekko, holds just about everything you need for just $10, and 100% of the net proceeds are donated to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. You can look great AND make a difference!

 It may not be cool yet here in Arizona, but autumn brings out the dry-season, when my skin is just THIRSTY. My lips and hands start to feel tight and itchy, so I need a moisturizer that really sinks in quick. I’ll reach for mark. Free For All body lotion, which is fragrance free, non-greasy and contains antioxident rich ingredients like acai, pomegranate and goji, plus shea and murumuru seed butters. I treat my lips to “Kiss Dry Goodbye”, a great Hook Up lip smoother, with Amazon White Cocoa extract for moisture, and my lips are instantly kissably soft.  And right now, with any $15 mark. skincare purchase, you can get a free Talk To The Hand, a fast absorbing, non-greasy hand cream!


This is my new favorite fragrance. mark. Sophistique is simply delightful, and my hubby Matt just loves it (always a bonus!) This gorgeous scent is a little rich, a little sweet, and a lot irresistible! Its an unexpected blend of sheer lotus, basmati rice, and golden amber, finished with orange blossom and ginger wood, and is THE hot fragrance for fall. Its not so rich and sweet as some Autumn scents typically are, but not so springy-floral that it seems out of place in your winter wardrobe. The sheer shimmer body creme is a great way to layer the fragrance to help it last longer. Fragrance rises, so for the longest lasting scent, spray or smooth your scent on from feet to shoulders. If you apply it only to the neck, it will eventually rise and disappear!

Be on the look out in November for more great tips from Bella!
