Aquaphor Healing Ointment is the #1 Dermatologist recommended product for dry, cracked skin. This convenient, easy-to-apply spray is ideal for arms, legs and hard to reach places like your back! The Aquaphor Ointment Body Spray immediately soothes and relieves dry, rough skin all day. This Spray leaves summer skin feeling soft and smooth, with a radiant, healthy-looking glow.

Women’s Rogaine 5% Minoxidil Foam

Regardless of the season, thinning hair is surprisingly common. Hair follicles begin to shrink as we age, leading to thinning hair. For women out there concerned about their hair’s volume, Valonda suggests getting started on Women’s Rogaine 5% Minoxidil Foam. It is applied once a day, morning or night and you’ll be on your way to new hair growth! Most people see results in three to six months. It’s an easy addition to your beauty routine and it can be used with other styling products. No problem if you have color treated hair. Hair follicles begin to shrink as we age, leading to thinning hair. For women out there concerned about their hair’s volume, I suggest getting started on Women’s Rogaine 5% Minoxidil Foam.

When it comes to eyewear we want function and style. Valonda selected her favorite shades to look cool in the summer heat. She says the slim cat-eye silhouettes for ladies like these from Icon Eyewear are a popular get, also vibrant hues on the eye-catching blue sunnies from Lilly Pulitzer are a big seller. And of course, we can't forget the guys. The classic double bridge effect on the Ted Baker glasses are a great look for any guy wanting to impress the ladies this summer.
