Sprout Skincare…You Could Almost Eat It

I initially heard about Sprout Skincare via GOOP. Turns out Gwyneth Paltrow is a big fan of the Brooklyn-based brand that makes all of their products by hand in small batches. I figured if it was good enough for Paltrow’s highbrow taste it was certainly something worth looking into and the more research I did, […]

NEST Moroccan Amber Body Wash and Cream: Love Nest

I am officially addicted to all things NEST. The fragrance company (they specialize in deliriously good, award-winning candles) seems to really know how to hook you on a scent. I have been using their Moroccan Amber body wash ($28) and body cream ($32) for a month now, and I still can’t get enough. With an […]

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!

L’Occitane Bonne Mere

Last week I went to L’Occitane for an event they were having to promote their partnership with WorldRiderZ, an organization that rides to raise money and awareness for Chronic Kidney Disease, and I while there I had the opportunity to try out a bunch of new (and some old favorites….helllooo Almond!), products. New to the […]

Jack Black Turbo Wash Energizing Hair & Body Cleanser: The King of Cleansers

I just got over the worst virus ever; I was quarantined for three days because it was so strong and dangerous to kids. So after marinating in my own germs for a week, I felt like what I needed was a bleach bath, but, of course, that would actually kind of kill me. Luckily, I […]

Frugal Snob: Skinnygirl Body Solutions Smooth And Firming Body Wash

I love Bethenny Frankel, but I do have a little beef with her. She’s always claiming to be “looking out for her fans,” and I believed that to be sincere, which is why I’m disappointed to see that she’s launched some pretty shady products. Among the latest ones she’s stamped her Skinnygirl logo on are […]

Elemental Herbology Deep Cleanse Summer Body Wash

I love love love Elemental Herbology. It’s a relatively new brand (founded in 2008) that was started by an acupuncturist and holistic body therapist so you can trust that it’s formulated without synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, mineral oils, sulphates, parabens, and other potentially noxious ingredients. What really has me hooked on this brand however is […]

Clark’s Botanicals Skin Clearing Face & Body Wash

Any skincare product that says “face and body” I will automatically just use on my body so I can’t vouch for what Clark’s Botanicals Skin Clearing Face & Body Wash ($46), would feel like on your face, but as a body wash I love it! I’m super acne prone on my upper back because of […]

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 […]
