Haute Looks: Get Silky Skin with Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson’s latest line of products can keep anyones skin as smooth as a baby. Whether or not there are any babies in your life, you can always count on these products for deep moisturizing and the ultimate clean feeling. HAUTE NYC’s Angela & Magen share two of their favorite new Johnson & Johnson products to keep you looking haute.

Magen

We all know that haute moms are always busy and in a rush, but somehow should still find the time to look and feel fabulous. Johnson & Johnson products are perfect for Haute moms, or any woman on the go. Products like the Baby Oil Gel with Shea and Cocoa Butter are just what the beauty gods created for staying fresh and moisturized. Though generally created for use on babies these products serve a dual purpose. Not only will your baby’s skin be protected but so will yours. Only $3.29 for 6.5 oz, this body gel oil is perfect for maintaining moisture and adding a glow to your skin. For extra moisture I recommend using the gel after shaving and when your body is still wet, doing so locks in the moisture and leaves you feeling baby smooth for hours. Other great uses for this product are for massages, we all know how being a mom can be a tad-bit stressful but go ahead, treat yourself to a massage using the oil gel, you will sure feel fantastic. I am a big fan of body oils, I often prefer to use them over lotions as they tend to hold on to moisture longer and leave me feeling a bit on the sexy side. This product can be found in food, drug and general mass-market chain stores, so go on treat yourself, you know you deserve it.

Angela

The winter months can be harsh on any skin, young or old. Many body washes tend to gear toward a particular scent rather than the moisture of your skin. There are others that promise smooth and soft skin, but seem to end up leaving a greasy feel to the skin. The perfect balance between the two lays in the new Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Oil Body Wash with Shea & Cocoa Butter that instantly became my new favorite. Since the day I tried it, I have actually found a noticeable difference in the softness of my skin by using the body wash. Winter in New York this year has been one of the worst on record, and this has been the one product that allows me to battle the dreaded dry skin of winter. Since beginning my obsession with this at the beginning of the month, my skin is ready for summer and so am I! The aromatic scent of cocoa and shea butters are reminiscent of a warm summer day and is so refreshing on the skin. For only $3.99 in any drugstore, you can get a 15oz. bottle that is definitely worth the purchase.

Haute Looks: Boy Meets Girl USA Fall 2011 Presentation

This past Tuesday, I had the pleasure of attending the Fall 2011 Boy Meets Girl USA 2011 Presentation at the Metropolitan Pavilion for New York Fashion Week. Sponsored by Style 360 and Polaroid, the event was one of the most fun experiences of all fashion week. A mixed crowd of editors, bloggers, photographers, and celebrities included the likes of songstress Kat Deluna, the fabulous Jay Alexander, and even Danielle Staub of Real Housewives of New Jersey. The opening of the show consisted of a beautiful performance by Natasha Bedingfield that had every fashion maven in attendance clapping their hands along to the beat.

I was especially excited for the presentation after interviewing the designer, Stacy Igel on both HAUTE NYC and frockOn.com. I have compiled a few of my favorite looks from the show. For all of my thoughts on the event, check out my article on frockOn. xO
