Frugal Snob Friday: The Seaweed Bath Co.’s New Launches

The Seaweed Bath Co., a brand started by a psoriasis sufferer, just expanded massively. I wrote about them over four years ago when they were just getting started. You can now find the homegrown company at places like Whole Foods, and they have a bunch of new products.

Frugal Snob: Soap & Glory For Your Stocking Stuffers

I’m spending more and more of my time traveling so I’m all over the holiday gift sets, which tend to not only be packed with travel sized products, but more often than not are bundled in value sets.

Frugal Snob: & Other Stories Launches Stateside

Unlike COS which has been around for awhile now across Europe and Asia, Swedish brand & Other Stories – which like COS is owned by H&M – just launched overseas about a year ago and recently in the US with a retail store in NYC and an online web shop.

Full-Bodied Skin Care: Splurge vs. Save

Anti-aging shouldn’t stop at the neck. In fact, hands are one of the easiest places to spot someone’s age; they’re rarely cared for as well as the face is, and the rest of the body often ends up equally overlooked. If you really want to stay soft skinned, you must pamper yourself from head to toe…

Valentina Home Brewed Pure Body Care

Valentina Home Brewed Pure Body Care

I’ve never been all that into potions, spells or tarot cards..maybe more out of fear than disbelief. Sure I read my Susan Miller horoscope, but I’ve never actually had my cards read or mixed up a love spell. Valentina, however, was started by woman with a long fascination with these spells (good witch spells, of course!).

L'Occitane Fall 2014 Collections

L’Occitane Fall 2014 Collections

If I had to pick one brand to use exclusively for the rest of my life it might very well be L’Occitane. It’s among the few brands I turn to every time my skin goes a little nuts with the change of the seasons or I have an unexpected breakout because I can count on their products to get the job done without aggravating my skin

Waxing Kara: A Beekeeper’s Artisanal Beauty Line

The name of this brand, Waxing Kara, is a little bit misleading. It’s not actually some sort of at-home waxing brand…or am I the only one who thought that?!

Honeycat Cosmetics Bath and Body Products

I’m a dog person, but I’m also a sucker for cute packaging so I fell hard for Honeycat Cosmetics. And lest you blame me…Donny Deutsch said this brand has “$10 million dollar packaging.”

Frugal Snob: The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Collection

The Body Shop always makes me nostalgic. I remember spending allowance money there growing up so I love that nearly two decades later they’re still alive and kicking! I will say their packaging could be a little swankier, but their new collection, Wild Argan Oil, smells so delicious I’m giving them a pass.
