Widespread Ban on Plastic Microbeads in Scrubs Possibly on the Horizon

Widespread Ban on Plastic Microbeads in Scrubs Possibly on the Horizon

It’s no secret that big companies more often than not try to cut costs with no regard to the effects on the planet or even the consumer as long as it helps their bottom lines. That’s exactly why a few years ago a number of them started using plastic exfoliating beads in their facial and body scrubs – versus natural products like coffee grounds or nuts.

Lierac Magnificence Eyes Precision Eye Care

Time and time again we’re told to treat the delicate skin around our eyes in a gentle manner. Unfortunately sometimes when you’re half asleep applying your eye cream at 6AM with no time to spare can be easier said than done, which is why I love eye products that don’t require actually touching your eye area.

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.

I wouldn’t wear all of them, but I have yet to smell a Tom Ford scent that doesn’t leave me marveling at how distinctive it is…

Fake Bake Mistifier: All in a Spray’s Work

By now, you’ve long since removed your rich creams from the vanity and replaced them with lighter moisturizers, but I’ve just found an oil-free option that’s going to blow those out of the water – and actually does so by adding water!

Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream

Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream: The Magic Maker

My British friends rave about Charlotte Tilbury and her Magic Cream, but of course it’s not available in the US yet (c’mon, FDA!). By the time it makes its stateside debut, the formula will be watered down or completely different, so I’ve been begging my friends across the pond to ship it to me!
