Origins: Anti-Aging Power Serum

Anti-aging is an eternal quest but if you find the right products that can halt the dreaded trauma in your life, it is a true miracle. I started preventing aging before I actually started aging. I am that obsessed. But once I turned 40, you can only imagine how that ramped up to a fever pitch.

Waxing Kara: A Beekeeper’s Artisanal Beauty Line

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.

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.

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.
