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.
Wipes have exploded. They’re so easy to use on the go, and when you’re like me and easily break out if you don’t cleanse right after sweating, they’re crucial, so it’s nice to have so many options on the marketplace.
Proactiv+ works…it just does. It’s formulated with the same actives as countless other products, but somehow their trio of products is more effective without smelling bad or over drying your skin (their step 2 product is drying, but if you cut it down from the recommended three times to one or add in a moisturizing SPF to the trio of products, your skin should be fine).
I’ve been traveling a lot lately, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect beauty-packing wise. Now is the time when most brands are releasing their limited edition beauty gift sets and most not only offer stellar values, but they’re usually travel friendly. Case in point First Aid Beauty’s FAB Aglow Kit.
I always travel with Restorsea’s Reviving cleanser. I just landed in NYC yesterday, and after a long day of running around, there’s no better way to refresh your skin before falling into bed. It was a lifesaver on 14-hour workdays during New York and Paris Fashion Weeks.
My friend works at Dermalogica so when, before leaving for a trip to Israel the other week, I realized I had no cleanser under 3oz I emailed her and asked her if she could send me one of my favorites in mini size (pretty, pretty please!).
How could something so gentle work this hard? The bottle looks just like a regular bottle of H2O, but in actuality, it holds the best makeup remover ever. Instead of harsh ingredients and chemicals, Koh Gen Do’s cleansing spa water removes dirt and waterproof makeup with Izumo thermal water from Yumura Hot Springs in Japan.
