Kiss My Face Sun Care for 2014 with Antioxidant Defenders is AWESOME. Just plain awesome. The natural brand (and one of my favorites) encourages customers to “practice safe sun,” and with sustainable and plant-based ingredients, it’s easier than ever to make a great product choice for your body while spending time in the sun. The natural mineral sun blocking agents of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide give UVA and UVB protection, while all of the sun care items are also free of parabens, oxybenzone, and artificial fragrances. SPFs offered in the sun care category from Kiss My Face range from 15-50, however I am wildly enthusiastic about the numbers at the higher end of the spectrum, being ultra-fair and burning easily.
Arriving in spring 2014, the new products bring some great items to the table, including the Tattoo Shade SPF30, which offers anti-fade protection with green tea, Vitamin E, and carrot extract, and the Sensitive Side SPF30, created especially for those of us with sensitive skin and containing oat protein, moisturizing safflower based hydresia oleosomes for extra hydration, and the requisite green tea and carrot extract. The new air powered spray, which is convenient for getting all of those hard-to-reach spots and nourishes and soothes with chamomile, Vitamins C, E, aloe and cucumber comes in a version for kids, sport, ultra sheer, and a whipped crème lotion. Shop the new line of Kiss My Face Sun Care in the spring of 2014 at Whole Foods and online at KissMyFace.com.

We certainly don’ think it has to be, and either does Lauren Bedford Russell of Brooklyn-based Lyon Fine Jewelry, who frequently uses black rhodium sterling silver combined with conflict-free black diamonds and jade. Contemporary shapes found in knuckle rings, pyramid stud earrings, and chain bracelets have unisex appeal, while the jewels themselves provide a subtle, yet definitive show piece of finely crafted, made-in-the-USA jewelry by a design talent to surely add to your “ones to watch list”. Pieces are available at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco, Kiki de Montparnasse, Otherwild, Berlyn65 Brooklyn, and online Lyon Fine Jewelry.
