New U LUXURY Products from UNITE

Suitable for all hair types, even color-treated hair, the newest additions to the U LUXURY collection – a decadently formulated healing shampoo and conditioner enriched with Crushed Pearls, Organic White Honey and Pure Argan Oil. Derived from freshwater pearls, Crushed Pearl has long been renowned for its healing powers and has been used in ancient medicinal treatments around the world. Rich in calcium, magnesium and amino acids, it delivers the essential minerals that nutrient-deprived hair craves.  Rare and utterly exquisite in texture, Organic Hawaiian White Honey is harvested from a single forest of Kiawe trees, and is celebrated for its intensely moisturizing benefits. 

U LUXURY Shampoo A luscious blend of hydrating, protective Crushed Pearl, fortifying Hawaiian White Honey, softening Pure Argan  Oil and gentle, Coconut-derived cleansers, this sulfate and paraben-free shampoo provides a creamy lather that doesn’t strip hair of moisture or cause buildup. Developed with Panthenol, a botanical extract rich in Vitamin B, it adds vivid shine and weightless volume to hair, while strengthening and invigorating it.
How to use: Apply to wet hair, lather, rinse and repeat as necessary. Follow with U LUXURY Conditioner.

U LUXURY Conditioner: This rich, creamy conditioner features a potent fusion of Crushed Pearl, Hawaiian White Honey and Pure Argan Oil, in addition to deeply nourishing Shea Butter, and Apple, Orange, Lemon and Sugar Cane extracts, which seal the hair cuticle to lock in moisture. Hair is left looking fuller and shinier and feeling softer and smoother. 
How to use: Apply from roots to ends. Leave in for 1-3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Favorite Indulgences

I just adore this time of year!  I love everything about the holidays — lavishly decorated window displays, twinkle lights,  festive music, holiday parties (and stylish party attire!) and shopping for the perfect gifts for my friends and family.  And, like most of you, it seems that I'm busy running from one event to another with scarcely a moment to relax!  That's no way to enjoy the holiday season.  So when I start to feel a bit frazzled, I turn to my favorite indulgence:  a cozy chair, a glossy magazine and a cup of steaming hot cocoa. (I can honestly say that I look forward to these moments almost as much as opening gifts on Christmas morning!)

I've recently discovered something that makes it even easier for me to enjoy my favorite indulgence: Café Escapes Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa.  It is rich, delicious and positively decadent!  We die-hard chocolate lovers know that dark is definitely the way to go. Café Escapes are available in K-Cup Packs for easy brewing in my Keurig® brewing system.  Just pop one in, press the  brew button and voilà!  Immediate gratification.

Since I am not much of a coffee drinker, I love that Café Escapes has two scrumptious chocolate flavors: Creamy Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa.  They are so rich and flavorful  the perfect treat on a cold blustery day. There is also an exquisite Chai Latte that is out of this world.  The perfect blend of cinnamon and spices, mingled with a splash of milky sweetness.

Now you've got a chance to indulge yourself!  Green Mountain is hosting a Facebook Sweeps.  There is a daily prize (2 winners a day, Monday - Friday) of an indulgent spa gift basket which includes a luxury robe, slippers, vanilla scented candle, wooden hand massager and a soft luxurious blanket.

 In addition to the daily prizes, they're giving away a grand prize ever week (a total of 6):  a spa getaway weekend in San Diego or Atlanta!  This prize offers round-trip coach airfare for you and a guest from the major airport closest to your home to Atlanta, GA or San Diego, CA, plus two nights accomodation at La Costa Resort & Spa or Chateau Elan, a rental car and $800 to use towards the spa.

Cafe Escapes is the brand of hot, flavored indulgent beverages that provide you an everyday treat and a chance to relax and savor a moment of your day, whether at home or at work.
