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

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

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

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) … Continue reading New Limited Edition Buys from L’Occitane

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 … Continue reading Halloween Beauty Buys from Philosophy

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

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 … Continue reading AHAVA Mineral Botanic Micro Peeling Body Wash: Scrub A Dub Dub

BORBA Firming Body Cleansing Serum: Spandex for Your Skin, Literally

I had to try this product because it sounded so gimmicky. It’s one of those products that boast exotic ingredients like Guanabana, Gotu Kola, Marigold, Cat’s Claw, echinacea, Licorice and Guava. This is per the usual, strange sounding fruits and botanicals that must work because they sound so cool!! But it’s the Hydrolyzed Spandex Fiber … Continue reading BORBA Firming Body Cleansing Serum: Spandex for Your Skin, Literally

L’Occitane Verbena Shower Gel and Citrus Verbena Sorbet Body Cream: Here’s to an Indian Summer

There’s something about the fresh scent of verbena, grapefruit, lemons, and oranges that makes me want to hold on to summer. After a long, hot day, nothing is more refreshing than citrus wafting by. These intoxicating Verbena products by L’Occitane are just what I’m counting on to extend my fun-in-the-sun days. The Verbena shower gel … Continue reading L’Occitane Verbena Shower Gel and Citrus Verbena Sorbet Body Cream: Here’s to an Indian Summer
