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.

Japanese Brand Yu-Be Comes to the U.S.

I learned a lot of things when, in the spring, I went to Japan for two weeks, like…the women have amazing skin and take their regimens very seriously and I’m not just talking about the geisha. Unfortunately even in the major department stores most people don’t speak a lick of English so discovering new products wasn’t as easy as I hoped.

Frugal Snob: Nip + Fab Launches New Body Products

After body wash, body moisturizer is about as low maintenance as any product you apply to your skin gets. The most important factors are that it smells good, absorbs quickly, moisturizes effectively, and doesn’t break the bank (at least I don’t want to spend the bulk of my beauty budget on either body cream or body moisturizer).

Yes To Carrots Launches Yes to Coconuts

Yes To Carrots Launches Yes to Coconuts

Hands down my favorite drugstore brand is Yes to Carrots especially now that drugstore brands seem to be either super cheap and chemically filled or fairly pricey (at least in NYC where more and more drugstores are carrying higher end brands). Yes to Carrots stays true to their natural philosophy and continues to deliver superfood-inspired skincare products.
