The fine folks as Famous Names Products have take all the good from Dadi’Oil (including three certified organic oils- Avocado, Olive and Jojoba- to plasticize, moisturize, and soften. We’ve also added NaturalVitamin E which is a powerful anti-oxidant. Plus, our aromatic blend of 21 essential oils smells fresh ,therapeutic, and rejuvenating!) and blended them into a non greasy lotion to add moisture with the benefits of Dadi’Oil!
It is vegan and does not contain sulfates or parabens!
Available in 2 oz travel size (great Christmas gifts btw), 8 oz pump bottle and 32 oz professional pump size.
Beauty Changes Lives is a foundation formed to help the betterment of the beauty industry by supporting the next generation of beauty professionals through scholarships.
There is a movement started (kind of like the ice bucket challenge) where profesionals give a “tip” on how to make transitioning into or being in the beauty industry better or easier.
Of course cash for the scholarships are always welcome.
People from all over are giving their tips and nominating their peers to help spread the word that “BEAUTY CHANGES LIVES”
Here is a qoute from @flueryrose
I support @beautychangeslives because it gives scholarships to aspiring beauty professionals who might otherwise not be able to afford to go to school.
She nominated Sigourney Nunez, who nominated myself and some other wonderful industry people.
So here you are, my #scholartip for Beauty Changes Lives.
I should note that although I said ‘this nail industry’, I believe it applies to all in our wonderful field of beauty.
“Invest in yourself to elevate our industry”
And here is a bit of info from their site for the folks I nominate or if you want to start your own ‘circle’!
Success requires more than money, so share your words of wisdom too. If you knew then, what you know now… What words of advice would you offer up to the next generation of beauty and wellness professionals?

When I was at Cosmoprof North America recently, I met the folks behind Nordic Care.
Nordic Care is a family owned and operated skin care company from Sweden who specializes in hand, foot and body care formulated with an exclusive blend of herbal extracts, along with moisturizing vitamins and natural botanical oils.
I was given sample of the hand cream, foot cream and a sample of the new Night Time Foot Oil! I have to say the only product I have seriously tried is the Night Time Foot Oil (I promise I will try the others asap) but this in now my new favorite product. The scent alone is incredible but here is the kicker. The product actually does what it says it does.
Here is a quote from Marketing & Sales Director, Michael at Nordic Care.
Nordic Care is proud to introduce their newest product to help combat dry and cracked skin. Nordic Care Night-time Foot Oil is developed using a combination of 100% natural oils and fruit acids that are high in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and cell-rejuvenating properties.
Using Therapeutic oils like Almond, Aloe Vera and Patchouli it aids in reducing inflammation, killing Fungi and helps provide energy for the growth of healthy skin. The combination of AHA Acids helps loosen hard skin while
Coconut, Avocado and Olive Oil with its large contains of Vitamin-E and Phytosterols, moisturizes, softens and protects the skin from damaging environmental elements.
Using the antimicrobial benefits of Elderberry makes this product free of artificial preservatives and no dyes, no phthalates and no artificial fragrances. Peppermint and Patchouli Essential oils give it an herbal and clean scent. Available in a 4 oz. size pump bottle, suggested retail: $38.00
The other wonderful thing about the oil is that it is not super oily. It rubs into your feet rather quickly. So even though it is suggested to apply the oil, then wear socks to bed, I found that it was not necessary. (Thank goodness cause I can’t sleep with socks on! lol)
I honestly believe it is the Swedish botanicals that make Nordic Care such a great product!
With 15 years in the industry, the Nordic Care family feels so confident in their products that they offer 100% satisfaction guarantee! You can’t beat that!
Velvet Lip Cream by Bonita Cosmetics, based out of California, is a moderately priced lip cream (applies like gloss with a wand and dries to a lip stick consistency)
I picked this one up while at Cosmoprof NA recently. It was available at the Boutique section of the show. I picked it as one of my seven products to take home and test out.
I liked the color of the lip cream at first glance. I tend to go to nude colors for some reason.
Maybe because my nails are usually really bright and sparkly! LOL
As the name states, this is really a cream lip color. Even though it goes on like a gloss and looks and feels wet for a little while, it does change consistency and becomes this really pretty satiny looking color on your lips.
Here is a swatch on my hand to show you the pretty color.
Nude Indulgence from Bonita Colors
The wear of this lip cream is quite good. I would say with drinking coffee and snacking at work, it stayed nicely for 4 hours!
You can purchase these online for $2.99. I know right!!! There are eight colors to choose from.
