It'??s hot out. We'??re talking 95+ (some 100+) with a WTH-humidity level. Freezer pops have actually become a food group in our house. And the cool thing'?¦achem'?¦is that I'??ve been blending beauty in with my popsicles. Why should my skin suffer the high temps?

The new feedmyskin is an entire line of frozen, single-serving skin care products made fresh daily using time-tested, all-natural ingredients. And they go in your freezer. Right next to your pops.

From a business-minded mom'??s South Carolina kitchen to Henri Bendel'??s 5th Avenue boutique and Celebrity Stylist Patricia Field'??s flagship NYC store, feedmyskin is the latest and greatest for refreshing summer time beauty.

They'??re designed to stay frozen until you want a frosty beauty treat. Some get thawed before you use them (like the Strawberry Scrub in a Tub body polish'?¦it'??s chilled to perfection and stays put as you scrub away the rough stuff in the shower), while others are housed in the ice box until the very last minute, like my favorite the Melon pushup. Think old school ice-cream truck meets frozen, frosty sunburn relief. It helps with hydrating toning and firming skin, while reducing the effects of lifestyle stress. The high sodium content (yes, in this case, salt is a good thing) helps draw excess water from the tissue surrounding the eyes, reducing puffiness. There's also a push-up in refreshing iced Java and skin-saving Aloe. You just smooth it over your skin, sit back and chill.

This is a fun summer treat for your skin. So stay cool, lovely ladies.

Feedmyskin is available at FeedMySkin.com.

I believe Momtrends is one of the first to report this, but'?¦*drum roll*'?¦Lush is launching its Emotional Brilliance collection on July 21st. *insert gasp of giddy delight here* I know it'??s a few weeks off, but let'??s get the excitement started now. Trust me, it'??s well worth the anticipation.

This amazing vegan makeup range consists of 13 liquid lip colors, 11 liquid eyeliners and six cream eyeshadows and it'??s about wearing makeup that shapes your mood. You can choose colors, each with a corresponding word such as Confident, Take Control, Glamorous'?¦then when you wear these shades, watch out. You're an emotional power house.

Lush didn'??t just plop down a bunch of characteristics and play the match-your-Crayola game. No, they put actual thought into this. They enlisted Strategic Behavioral Therapist Lady Kennedy'??s help to figure out what's what'??your strength, your subconscious needs and your talents.

The Liquid Lips are truly amazing, with a blend of organic jojoba oil, candelilla wax and rose wax for a unique paint-on liquid formula I'??ve never seen before. It'??s almost a creamy stain but can be used to really pack a color punch. The cream eyeshadows can be as bold as you please, or you can blend them in for a more subtle hue. It has a soothing rose petal infusion with almond and jojoba oils for your sensitive eye area. If you don't want your eyeliner to budge, try the Liquid Eyeliners in Independent and Fantasy that have no-smudge, stay-put formulas. The others are blendable colors to create a softer look.

The collection also comes in clear bottles, so you can see the amazing colors. It's just brilliant enough to get me all emotional.

Emotional Brilliance is available starting July 21 for $22.95 each at Lush stores and lushusa.com.
