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 […]

IOMA Launches Body Products

IOMA, a Saks exclusive in Manhattan and California, just launched in the U.S. late last year, but they’ve become so popular that they’re already introducing their body range in the States (its been a top seller in high-end department stores in France for awhile). The line will also be launching in Harrod’s. Just like with […]

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) […]

AHAVA Mineral Botanic Velvet Cream Body Wash: Rule with a Velvet Glove

Seriously, why haven’t I been using this all winter? After spending time in New York for Fashion Week, I was dried out. The first thing I did when I got home was jump in the shower and indulged with this velvety cream wash. This is a whole new experience – no lathering up and scrubbing […]

LIV GRN Cherry Wood Body Lotion and Shower Gel: Spoil Yourself Green

It scares me how many people I know have cancer. And when I think of how we inadvertently harm our own bodies, especially when we’re just trying to clean and moisturize – it scares me more. Skin is the largest organ and anything you put on it is absorbed directly into the blood stream. So […]

Frugal Snob: UK Brand, I Love…Cosmetics, Comes to the US

I don’t tend to like knock-offs and I Love…Cosmetics was clearly inspired by Philosophy, but I still can’t help loving the line…look at the colors! The taglines! The packaging! The UK brand just recently expanded into the US and is now available at Duane Reade and Wal-Mart stores here in NYC. I was sent the […]

New Limited Edition Buys from L’Occitane

L’Occitane, the ruler when it comes to shea butter, verbena, and almond – at least in my book! – always has great holiday gifts, limited edition sets, and stocking stuffers. Better yet, they’ve got a ton of value sets so you can load-up on favorites for yourself. Holiday Hands Trio ($25) and Shea Travel Treasures($40) […]
