“Ida Body Care has formulated an amazing Body Lotion made of natural ingredients and 18 essential oils chosen specifically for the body, including collagen protectors like Coconut oil, Shea Butter, and Sunflower Seed oil,” according to Ida Body Care Founder & CEO Vicki Weaver Payne. “Our Body Lotion is the first product my mother Ida created while repairing planes during WWII. Even back then, this recipe featured only natural ingredients and essential oils.”
The entire Ida Body Care line is clean, vegan, and cruelty free,
The Verbena Citrus scent of all the Ida Body Care products has a zesty, sweet scent of lemon. The joy of Verbena Citrus is the engaging lemony smell that leaps from the light green leaves of the aromatic herb.
Body Lotion: Ida developed this lotion with natural ingredients and 18 essential oils including collagen protectors like Coconut oil, Shea Butter, and Sunflower Seed oil. Apply it in the same way she lived her life—generously. It’s a formula first perfected by my mom, Ida. Its’ purpose is the same today as it was 50 years ago: to revive dry and fatigued skin, so you can get back to it. MSRP: $24.00 for 8 oz; and $12.00 for 4 oz.

Winter is around the corner – but don’t go and retire your favorite fall colors anytime soon. Celebrity manicurist and owner of As U Wish Nail Spa, Skyy Hadley chose five shades that make for the ultimate manicure to transition from fall-to-winter. From a classic neutral to hot cocoa-inspired hues, these five polishes can be worn throughout the upcoming seasons.
1.Cozy, Caramel-Colored Neutral
Can’t go wrong with the classics. A warm-toned neutral is chic and minimalistic, and compliments anything you’re wearing. Switch things up, and opt for a matte finish instead of your glossy go-to.
2.Gilded in Gold
This time of the year is gold’s time to shine. It is always sure to dazzle – whether you can use it as an accent nail or a complete, show-stopping metallic manicure. It compliments all holiday color palettes effortlessly, making it versatile enough to bounce from season to season.
Nothing says holiday bliss more than a true shade of green. Somewhere in-between a medium-toned moss and a deep forest green, hunter green is an eye-catching color suited for fall, winter, and beyond.
I’m loving cozy, chocolate colored nails this season. The muted neutral isn’t too flashy, while still standing apart from your average nude. Milk chocolate manicures are universally flattering on any skin tone, and a tasteful (and tasty) way to transition into the cold winter months.
Cranberry is a fun and festive twist on a classic red manicure. The gorgeous color will add a touch of glamour to your look, and serve as a subtle compliment to all of the seasonal décor.

it Cosmetics is living up to their hype! it Cosmetics is different from other brands because it makes sure their products don’t harm your skin. They also don’t harm animals! Yes, it Cosmetics is a cruelty-free beauty brand that works with plastic surgeons to benefit your skin.
I had the opportunity to try out many samples including Bye Bye Lines Foundation, Your Skin But Better CC+ Powder, Confidence in Your Glow 3-in-1 (bronzer, highlighter, and blush), and the Bye Bye Breakout Concealer.
With it Cosmetics’s Bye Bye Lines Foundation, you get 100% coverage with a little portion. When I used the foundation, it only took me three squirts to cover my entire face. Your face feels very light with the coverage as well. No cake-y feeling! This foundation is an invisible coverage promoting anti-aging, smooth-feeling skin.
After I used the foundation, I turned to the Your Skin But Better CC+ Powder as a finishing veil. With the 50+ SPF, it controls the look. By that, I mean there’s no oily finish when in hot, humid weather conditions.
The Confidence in Your Glow 3-in-1 is used for contouring your makeup layout. I tested the highlight on a relative’s skin as well as my own and there is no difference in clarity on both of our skin tones (I’m more on the darker side). Because of this, I can vouch for darker skin tones with it Cosmetics.
Anyway, darker skin-toned people tend not to use blush so this was also tested on my relative and it’s a perfect ratio of pink to red without looking like you just got done filming a movie scene!
Last, not least, the Bye Bye Breakout Concealer is for last minute use. When I realize I miss a spot on my face, this little tube comes a long way. The best part about this concealer is the fact that it targets oily/acne prone skin.
Throughout this whole process, my face never felt heavy or dirty. It will give you a professionally clean look. I recommend trying this beauty line. Your skin will thank you.
