The Best Hair Straightener and Curling Iron in One

Who doesn’t want to save space and money, and while we’re at it…time? Two-in-one beauty products and tools are, at least in theory, great for just that. Of course, some things work better than others; think bb cream (Amazing!) vs. two-in-one shampoo and conditioner (Honestly, has anyone ever tried a good one?). This brings me to combination flat irons and curlers. I’m splitting my time between Tel Aviv and New York, so multitasking is key. I’m curious. Which ones are your favorites?

What You Need to Know about Vitamin D

You might be reading this in the pouring rain or freezing cold, wondering whether this weather is cause for loading up on vitamin D (if you’re anything like me, you haven’t spent any real time in the sun in months!!). Not only is the vitamin essential for bone strength and overall immunity, but it’s key for skin health (a deficiency is associated with acne). It’s estimated that 1 billion people worldwide have a vitamin D deficiency. But like so many other things, the misinformation out there is mind-boggling. How much of this vitamin do we actually need? Where do we get it from? And how can we know if we’re lacking? I turned to Alexandra Caspero, MA, RD, CLT, RYT, and a nutritionist at HUM (a brand that makes a curated selection of vitamins and supplements), to fill us all in.

Men’s Grooming Myths Debunked

Times are changing…no longer is it uncommon for men to be as discerning when it comes to their beauty regimen as women are. In fact, my father is MORE of a Beauty Snob than my mother, and I have countless male friends who regularly pamper themselves with spa treatments, manicures, and an assortment of beauty products. There is still, however, a lot of misinformation out there…

Tom Ford Launches Dopp Kits and More for Spring

Tom Ford Launches Dopp Kits and More for Spring

If there’s one man who can get away with launching a $790 dopp kit, it’s Tom Ford. Simple and luxe, the bag is made from gorgeous grained leather. I couldn’t for the life of me justify the price, but if you’ve got the disposable income…I’m jealous. I’d buy one in every color! Each of the cases has a washable liner should you get makeup on it, so they have function to match their good looks. If nearly four digits is too steep a price for you, the designer has launched a number of covetable beauty buys as well.

4 Spring Beauty Trends You Need to Know About

4 Spring Beauty Trends You Need to Know About

I’m sitting here eating a basket full of leftover Godiva Easter bunny chocolate wishing sugar wasn’t pure bliss and trying to block out that my boyfriend keeps reminding me that he wants me to toss my one-piece bathing suits in favor of bikinis (What can I say? Some chocolate is just worth it.). Transitioning into spring from the winter isn’t always easy! While there are countless beauty trends being hailed as “musts” for the season, I’ve rounded up four of the ones that, in my opinion, are the most versatile…

Clarisonic Mia Fit vs. Foreo Luna

Clarisonic Mia Fit vs. Foreo Luna: The Ultimate Showdown

Clarisonic knockoffs are a dime a dozen, but none have come close to being a viable alternative to the pioneering mechanical exfoliator until the recent launch of Luna ($169). I used the Clarisonic for YEARS. Swore by it…

Proactiv Repairing Concealer: Fight Acne with Your Concealer

There are few things as annoying as having a breakout and knowing full well that by covering it up with makeup, you’re only making it worse. But then if you don’t, at least for me, it ends up heavily weighing down my confidence (and it doesn’t matter how many times my girlfriends tell me they don’t notice or my boyfriend tells me I’m beautiful). Finally, there’s an answer!

Function of Beauty

Function of Beauty: A New Bespoke Haircare Line (and It’s Affordable!)

Cartier diamonds and Maseratis aren’t in most people’s budgets, but luckily the saying “it’s the thought that counts” really does hold true in almost every case; this is why personalized gifts can have such a great impact. That said, whether you’re looking to give your loved one something that he or she will not only love, but use (and think of you!) daily or looking to pamper yourself with something unique, it’s not always easy to do that on a budget either, which is why Function of Beauty is such a great find.

Beard Bib: It’s a Thing and Every Man Needs One

I make my boyfriend watch Shark Tank with me every week. It’s my only guilty TV pleasure aside from all the Housewives shows, and I love him too much to make him sit through any of those! When I saw Beard Bib on the program, I thought what an embarrassing and useless idea. Who would use this?
