There’s always one absolute favorite product in any girl’s beauty cupboard and for me it’s my array of Sara Happ Lip Scrubs. Although lip exfoliation is something I do on a random occurrence, I’ve fallen so in love with this brand and it’s cute packaging that I’ve become a collector of sorts. Is it a little obsessive-compulsive that I have to have them perfectly lined up and the labels facing outwards?
For those who aren’t familiar with the brand, Sara Happ specializes in gentle but effective sugar scrubs for the lips, a key lip balm called “The Lip Slip,” and a beautiful body scrub.
Normally her product scents are that of what you’d experience in your favorite bakery, but this summer she’s gone a bit fruity, not in the head, but in her latest limited edition lip scrub for summer, Sparkling Pink Grapefruit.
This delicious lip scrub has hints of sweet grapefruit and is a necessity during a season where our lips experience the harsh and drying rays of the sun. Make a weekly date with Sara Happ’s fabulous products!

An amazing pink and orange sunset is setting the perfect romantic backdrop, you're wearing your favorite floral sundress, your hair is styled in the perfect undone beach wave. He leans in for the kiss and then you remember……my dry, flaky lips are not in any condition for romance! If only we could pause the situation like a movie scene, but unfortunately if you haven't remembered to exfoliate your lips, chances are this is going to be one rough smackeroo session.
Because the lips are a thinner and more sensitive area than the rest of your face, it's imperative that you use a separate exfoliant for that area, not the abrasive microderm product you might use on the rest of your face. There's is no better product than Sara Happ's Limited Edition Blood Orange Lip Scrub. This gentle yet effective sugar scrub will lightly exfoliate your lips with delish smelling granular sugar crystals. Simply apply onto lips and rub in circular motions for a minute and then rinse off. The lips are left soft and smooth and ready for some kissing!

Perfumer Yosh joins us again for another round of Scents & Sensibility! Spring has passed and now summer is truly in bloom. The earthy aromas of the season are in full swing like jasmine that seems it's most intoxicating at sunset, freshly mowed green grass, sweet honeysuckle and a day at the beach (cotton candy, coconut cocktails, sunscreen) and all! Yosh answers a few of our seasonal questions and recommends some great summer scents for our 2012 Summer Fragrance Flight, a sampler set of 5 fragrances for $15 that will leave you smelling great as the temperature rises.

Our body chemistry (as well as the Earth's) changes during the summer. It's warmer out so we change our activities accordingly. When it's hot and humid, light and fresh fragrances tend to be more suitable for the season. Fruity florals or citrus aromatics are refreshing and carefree.
How do we choose the perfect summer fragrance?
This depends on your activity but for the office, something watery and subtle would be appropriate but weekends and going out at night, something sparkly and juicy would be more fun.
I've heard that eau de toilette can be a better choice than an eau de parfum because they're lighter based. However, the lighter they are I find the more times I have to apply. What's the solution?
There's a misconception that fragrances should last all day but I prefer to carry a purse spray to spritz throughout the day. It's like asking the sunlight to stay the same from morning through the day. Nobody is that robotic. Clothing gets wrinkled and worn as you sit and walk around. Refresh your fragrance when you powder your nose and add fresh coat of lipstick.
Eau de toilette EDT and eau de parfum EDP refer to the strength of perfume concentrate and alcohol. There's more alcohol and less concentrate in EDT so the dilution gives the wearer a lighter impression. I think this is a great solution if a person tends towards the heavier florientals or gourmands normally. Then you can still enjoy this genre of fragrance in the summer rather than trying to wear a different style of perfume. But if you like cologne style aromatics or citrus fragrances, then EDP is fine even in the summer. If you like floral musks or powdery fragrances, then choose the less intense EDT otherwise, it can be cloying in humid weather. If it's a dry climate with coastal breeze (west coast) then EDP is fine.
What are some of our summer inspired fragrances that have caught your eye this season?
In my own collection, I was surprised to find that I fell in love with U4EAHH. Even though it's a global best seller, it was one of my creations that I never wore because it is usually turns sour on me. But I've been in Tokyo for the last few weeks and the climate here is quite humid and the fragrance smells amazing on me. The new Rodin olio lusso Perfume also sounds amazing to me with neroli and jasmine.
