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: 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.

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.

Skincare brand Restorsea’s founder Patti Pao is certain of one thing – you will love her products. She is so sure of this that she offers refunds for unsatisfied customers. I have yet to hear a negative review yet, though! To drive this point home, we had three women from all different walks of life try the products.

Best Facial Peels: Go for the Glow

You have the cleanser and the moisturizer, but do you use a facial peel on a regular basis? While some Snobs fear irritating their skin, a “peel” isn’t at all as severe as it sounds. The key is simply to find one that works for you.

Fresh Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask

Fresh Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask

I met the founders of Fresh a few weeks ago to check out their latest launch, Fresh Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask ($130). Despite being bought by LVMH, the two founders, Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg, are still fiercely involved which is always refreshing to see.

Best Gold Beauty: The Midas Touch

Who wants to shine bright like a diamond when you can shimmer like gold? There are few beauty products more luxurious than the ones made with real gold. That’s right – it’s not just for jewelry! Sure it’s nice to have our baubles sparkle, but it’s better to have radiant skin.

JuveRest Sleep Wrinkle Pillow

JuveRest Sleep Wrinkle Pillow: Sleeping Beauty

The truth is that beauty sleep is not always so beautifying. Sure, those bags under your eyes might be gone, but all night you were slowly but surely creating facial wrinkles. And you sleep for about 1/3 of your life!
