It’s just 10 short days until Mother’s Day! It can seem daunting to buy gifts for the woman who’s always giving to you. When in doubt, go with beauty products – unlike clothes (which can be hit or miss even with your closest friends), you won’t have to fret about getting the right size. I […]

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel: Kiss from a Rose

Since I’ll be traveling a lot this summer, I’m already assembling a heatproof beauty plan.

Perricone MD Cold Plasma Eye: Fountain of Youth

Dr. Perricone’s Cold Plasma eye cream is so popular that it’s always selling out, so I was excited to start testing it a month ago. Truth be told, things didn’t start very well – the minute I opened the little jar, I gagged. It smelled like the codfish liver oil my grandmother used to force […]
