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) […]

Halloween Beauty Buys from Philosophy

Honestly I hate Halloween. Not to sound like a curmudgeon, but here in NYC it’s usually pretty cold by the time October 31st rolls around and nothing makes me feel older than seeing all kinds of drunkenness and an endless parade of skimpy outfits! My boyfriend and his friends are really into it so there’s […]

Voyage d’Hermès Eau de Toilette and All-Over Shower Gel: A Strong In-scent-tive

Voyage d’Hermès is the cleanest and most refreshing scent by Hermès to date. I have not been much of a fan of Hermès scents in the past – their heavy-handed use of leather and musk was a bit too much rugged fragrance for me. But this new incarnation, a unisex scent developed by perfumer Jean-Claude […]

AHAVA Mineral Botanic Micro Peeling Body Wash: Scrub A Dub Dub

AHAVA is quickly becoming my all time Frugal Snob favorite beauty line. And I shouldn’t even qualify it by saying it’s a Frugal Snob favorite, it is a favorite all around. Their body treatments and products are incredible. This Micro Peeling Body Wash is no different. It feels so good it begs me to the […]
