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!

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. They specialize in non-toxic, natural brands and they have a store in Venice, California…how I missed it when I was on Abbot […]

Palatium Roman Bath Oil: Do As the Romans Do

Bath-lovers rejoice: this is the most luxurious oil ever. With the same ingredients ancient Romans lathered themselves in, it’s made from Tuscan olive oil infused with an artisanal fragrance. Palatium’s Roman bath oil smells like heaven and makes you feel like you’re in heaven while having a soak. As you know, I love oils and […]

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 […]

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 […]

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! I’m a huge fan of their exclusive, Nip + Fab (from the woman behind Rodial) […]

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 […]

Rodial Life & Style and Holiday Gift Sets

This past summer Rodial founder Maria Hatzistefanis hosted an event to preview her Nip + Fab line, which is now at Target and while I was getting a sneak peak at that, I was also able to check-out her Life & Style range. Truth be told I don’t even know if I was supposed to […]
