Equitance Brightening Collection

Equitance Brightening Collection: Pearly Perfection

I started using the Equitance Brightening Collection six months ago, hoping to bolster my daily routine with some much-needed nourishment. Most Asian women care more about flawless skin than makeup (if you don’t have dark spots or discoloration, what’s there to cover up?), and this Japanese line gives you that naturally beautiful look.

Charcoal: The New “It” Ingredient

Just when I wrapped my head around kale migrating from the kitchen into skincare it’s already being eclipsed by a new “it” ingredient and would you believe it’s charcoal?

Full-Bodied Skin Care

Full-Bodied Skin Care: Splurge vs. Save

Anti-aging shouldn’t stop at the neck. In fact, hands are one of the easiest places to spot someone’s age; they’re rarely cared for as well as the face is, and the rest of the body often ends up equally overlooked. If you really want to stay soft skinned, you must pamper yourself from head to toe…

Glytone Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream

Glytone Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream

Just because the summer is over doesn’t mean you can get lazy with your pedicures. In fact, this is the time to really take care of your feet, after the harsh beating they get over the summer (especially wearing flip flops; they’re torturous on the heels). I’ve been using the Glytone Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream – mostly on my feet – to great results.

StriVectin SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate

StriVectin SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate: The Wrinkle Eraser

I started using Strivectin over 10 years ago, just after I’d turned 30 and gotten married. I’d always been a beauty addict, but with so many big life changes, I felt like being even more proactive when it came to anti-aging.

L'Occitane Fall 2014 Collections

L’Occitane Fall 2014 Collections

If I had to pick one brand to use exclusively for the rest of my life it might very well be L’Occitane. It’s among the few brands I turn to every time my skin goes a little nuts with the change of the seasons or I have an unexpected breakout because I can count on their products to get the job done without aggravating my skin

Should You Get Botox to Prevent Wrinkles?

Should You Get Botox to Prevent Wrinkles?

Frown lines, forehead furrows, and lines around the eyes are due to the repetitive folding of the skin from facial expressions. The more you move the muscles, the more quickly lines and wrinkles will form.

Natura Bissé Diamond Life Infusion Retinol Eye Serum

Natura Bissé Diamond Life Infusion Retinol Eye Serum: Passing the Eye Test

This new eye serum from Natura Bissé blows everything other brand’s out of the water. Summer is rough on skin, especially when you’re outside all of the time with your tots (amusement parks, beaches, pools…it’s unavoidable). I was horrified to discover new lines around my eyes, to the point that I was ready to try something extreme.

Proactiv

Proactiv+ Emergency Blemish Relief

I have tried so hard to find products that keep my skin as effectively clear as Proactiv+ because I would much, much rather – as shallow as it sounds – have Chanel on my vanity than Proactiv+.
