If you live on the Eastern Coast of the United States, you will feel us when we say, “It has been cold out there.” Even with those lovely Mulleavys bringing the sunshine from their coast all the way to ours with the Rodarte show yesterday, we're still a little chilly. Maybe all the more chilly from basking in their laid-back L.A. vibrations ('Wish we all could be california giiiiiirls....'). Thank the beauty gods—who, by the way, I like to picture as omnipresent creatures who wear great red lipstick, have Julian D'ys hair, and mixed-metal manicures—for this latest mystical, magical, one-size-fits-all fix: Leonor Greyl Huile de Magnolia oil. If you're somewhere cold, you know that cold air means cold skin means dry skin means ouch (let's do away with "ouch," shall we?), and if you're in the sun all day, you're drying yourself out just the same, so we're all together in this: no more dry skin! I've been grabbing Huile de Magnolia for its floral, crisp, fresh scent, its beauty in your medicine cabinet, its moisturizing prowess, and remarkably gentle feel. (It can even be used post-wax, so la di dah). And recently, I have taken to slathering it all over my damn self as an extra post-bathing step, to a skin-quenching, satiny-result. Now, I just need a Gloffice cabana boy to massage it into my shoulders while I type.
