Cleanlogic Encourages Us to Dine in the Dark

If there’s one thing that’s hard to do, it’s impress a group of beauty/fashion writers who go to one, if not more, events a night. But impressed we all were last week when a couple dozen bloggers and editors made their way to a loft space for a Cleanlogic event. After meeting the founder, who explained … Continue reading Cleanlogic Encourages Us to Dine in the Dark

Queen Helene Batherapy: Bring the Hot Springs Home

While in Taiwan over each summer, even in deathly humid heat, one of my favorite things to do is go to the sulfur hot springs. I truly believe in the health benefits, but even without them, time in a hot spring is good for the soul and purifying for the mind just because it is … Continue reading Queen Helene Batherapy: Bring the Hot Springs Home

Ava Anderson

Ava Anderson is a remarkable brand. Not only are the 50-plus products in their eight lines (avaBODY, avaSKIN, avaFACE, avaSUN, avaHAIR, ava SCENT, avaHOME and avaBABY), made without harmful ingredients, but they only contain organic ingredients, many of which are vegan and the entire range is the brainchild of a girl who is only 18! … Continue reading Ava Anderson

Shopping Find: The Detox Market

I’m completely obsessed with The Detox Market. I’m not even sure how exactly I stumbled upon this website, but they’ve got a killer selection of beauty products, including a number of under-the-radar brands.

Frugal Snob: Target Fall 2012 Beauty Preview

Try as they may to revamp their offerings to make them appear more luxurious, CVS, Duane Reade, and other similar drugstores have nothing on Target. Hands down the best place to shop for affordable beauty products they stock one of my favorite brands (and I’m talking fave at any price point) – Yes to Carrots … Continue reading Frugal Snob: Target Fall 2012 Beauty Preview

Cor Silver Soap: Clean to the Cor

It’s hard to believe that a single soap can offer everything from cleaning to antibacterial protection, brightening, reducing pore size, exfoliating, and even providing anti-aging and SPF. Seriously, can one bar of soap really be this powerful? If it’s Cor Silver soap, then yes. This soap delivers, and it’s pretty amazing. The only claim a … Continue reading Cor Silver Soap: Clean to the Cor

Frugal Snob: Target Debuts New Products and Brands

People think we have it all here in Manhattan when it comes to shopping, but we don’t have a Target which means we’re seriously deprived of some of the best picks when it comes to frugal snob beauty product shopping!

Frugal Snob: Skinnygirl Face & Body

You always hear about celebrities and designers licensing out their name and then having very little involvement in the resulting products. While it’s possible that this is the case with Bethenny Frankel, I would be very surprised. She always stays true to her brand and seems to care deeply about what products she associates herself … Continue reading Frugal Snob: Skinnygirl Face & Body
