Shaveworks The Cool Fix: Help Treat and Prevent Ingrowns

In terms of harmless but aggravating beauty annoyances that most women have to deal with on a regular basis, ingrowns, after breakouts, are pretty much on top. I have yet to find a magical cure, but regular exfoliation does help as do soothing products like Shaveworks’ The Cool Fix Targeted Gel Lotion.

Ling Energy Lift Facial: Just like Heaven

I love spas. I will travel to the ends of the earth for a good spa, so imagine how excited I was to find one of the best in my backyard! The SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills has always been a favorite spot for dinner and drinks. The Philippe Stark design excites the senses like no other. But it was only recently that I visited their spa…

Chantecaille Rose de Mai Cream

Chantecaille Summer Collection

Chantecaille is like Tom Ford…it’s pretty hard for the brand to do any wrong so trying anything from their line is very low risk. They recently launched a new skincare product, Rose de Mai Cream, which is infused with rose de mai, a rare (read pricey – it only blooms for three weeks in May) ingredient known for its anti-aging capabilities.

ESPA: The Great Escape

This may sound crazy, but in Asia, most women visit the spa daily. The amenities are so grand and luxurious! I’ve rarely found comparable services or facilities in the US, which makes the discovery of ESPA all the more thrilling. I visited ESPA at the Joule in Dallas, and with over 350 spas in 55 countries, there’s a good chance you can find one in your area too!

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.

Spray-On Moisturizer: Just a Spritz

If you’re a lazy Snob or busy Snob (or just a Beauty Snob in general), you’ll appreciate this roundup. Everyday feels like a race to the finish line for me, and to keep up, I often find myself prioritizing the care of my face over that my body. Since I’ve discovered spray-on moisturizer, though, I’ve realized that it doesn’t have to be one over the other.

Natura Bissé Oxygen Cream

Natura Bissé Oxygen Cream: The Perfect Summer Cocktail

As we all know, oxygen is vital to living, and not just so we can breathe – a depletion of it ages skin. I’ve had amazing oxygen facials, but just once a month? Is that all my skin gets? I want it daily, and my wish, it seems, is Natura Bissé’s command.

Health, Beauty, and Fitness Books to Read Now

I’m planning a Gwyneth Paltrow-themed potluck dinner party – themed dinner parties are kind of my thing…I don’t like to cook, but I love getting people together and I find that if it’s around a theme like Momofuku, raw vegan, or Gwyneth, it makes everyone else get more excited about partaking.

Protein Powder: Not Just for Bodybuilders

One of the biggest fitness myths is that protein powder is just for bodybuilders. In fact it can make a huge difference for active women of all fitness levels looking to build and maintain lean muscle.
