Sensitive Skin Body Cream
Though I am lucky (and regimented) enough to have blemish-free skin, my outer layer is actually quite sensitive. On top of that, I have battled Keratosis Pilaris Rubra on and off for ten years. If you didn’t know, Keratosis Pilaris is the scientific term for unusually bumpy and inflamed areas of skin.

Because there is no ’cause’ for the condition, I have spent a long time trying out exfoliating and moisturising products for the body in hopes of reaching a good formula to ‘cure’ it. While the exfoliating side of things can be done as cheaply as a sugar mixed with olive oil, the moisturiser has been a problem.

This is not a paid ad. I have literally found the perfect moisturiser.

Pai Skincare’s Comfrey & Calendula Calming Body Cream is organic, anti-inflammatory (thanks to the calendula) and healing (thanks to the comfrey). After two days of use, my skin was 100% bump-free. While the two c’s are mega winners, the allantonin – a natural substance I had never tried – seems to be the key, stimulating growth of new skin. The lotion itself is silky, rich, and smells faintly of orange sorbet.

On top of that? After using a hair product that left less-than-desirable results, I emptied two pumps of the body cream into my hands and worked it through my hair. Four strangers have complimented me on my locks today*. It is incredibly silky, brushable (!!), and has virtually airbrushed the frizz from my head.

I somehow feel everyone can find use for this.

* I am a frizzy mess with hair down to my bum. This never happens.

Rachel McAdams Midnight in Paris

It’s the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, guys; prepare to see some intensive fashion investigations. Case Uno? Rachel McAdams at the “Midnight in Paris” photocall with Owen Wilson at her side. Showing off her newly-lightened locks, she strutted around in a fitted Maxime Simoens Couture 2011 dress with camellia flower shoulder and pocket accents. Adding some killer beige Ferragamo peep toes, she looked like a textbook Golden Goddess.

Richard Chai Love
The attendance at Richard Chai yesterday afternoon was surprisingly packed. If you recall last season, you’ll know that Chai was a front runner for the neo-grunge trend. For Fall/Winter, he is sticking to those roots with over-the-knee sweaters, and a new take on neutrals. Both the collection and (one to watch) Charlotte Free‘s neon pink locks were divine.
