Ole Henriksen: The Game has Changed

There aren’t many products I feel compelled to strong-arm my friends into, but Ole Henriksen (pronounced ooh-la, as in ooh-la-la!) is one of them. The Lemon Strip Flash peel, Walnut complexion scrub, and Ultimate Lift eye gel are must-haves!

TouchBack Temporary Color Marker

TouchBack Temporary Color Marker: Away with the Gray

Recently I was preparing to leave for a trip to New York when I realized that my grays were showing (yes, that’s my current reality!). Without time for a salon appointment, I popped on over to Duane Reade to pick up the TouchBack pen. This is a temporary solution just like dry shampoo, but sometimes you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do!

There are countless face creams that fight dark spots, but I rarely see any body creams that fight them. I love all Yes to products; I’ve tried dozens of them and have yet to come across one that isn’t effective, so I was intrigued by Yes to Grapefruit spot correcting body cream.

Renee Rouleau Bio Brasion: Turning Back the Clock

In the first few weeks of 2014, I have already racked up over 25K frequent flier miles, traveling throughout two continents and six cities. As fun as it’s been, my skin quickly began to feel like dry, crackling paper, sending me running straight to my longtime esthetician, Renee Rouleau.

Chantecaille Nano Gold Energizing Face Cream

Chantecaille Nano Gold Energizing Face Cream: Worth Its Weight in Gold

Forget liquid gold – in this weather you need gold cream. Chantecaille is the only thing that kept my skin from cracking during our week in Beaver, Colorado and a recent trip to NYC. I use it every night, but up in the mountains, 2–3 times a day. Next to SPF, it’s the most vital beauty product in dry, chilly temperatures.

Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Body Milk Lotion

Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Body Milk Lotion: WARNING – Do Not Eat

Packaging isn’t everything in the beauty world, but when a sumptuous product finds its way into equally delectable packaging, the must-have effect goes through the roof. That’s how I feel about everything from Texas-based Farmhouse Fresh beauty, especially their Sweet Cream body milk lotion.

My Home Spa Ritual with Koh Gen Do

My Home Spa Ritual with Koh Gen Do

The bath is my sanctuary. A nice, long soak solves all most problems, whether it’s exhaustion, a headache, an oncoming cold, or just general crankiness. It’s about as close to the Fountain of Youth as we’re going to get. You step in after a long day, and reemerge fresh and new.
