Fight Dry Skin with Mario Badescu

I love Mario Badescu. They may not have the swankiest packaging, but when you’ve got skincare issues – say a breakout that just won’t go away or exceptionally dry skin – they’ve always got the right product. Plus I much, much rather a company invest in good quality ingredients than advertising or flashy containers. Badescu […]

Soap and Glory Shower Trip

I cannot handle the East Coast right now!!! I am pale as a ghost and it’s freezing! I’m counting my lucky stars that I have a job that allows me to work from anywhere and that my parents have an apartment in South Beach so that I can fly back and forth every few weeks […]

Natura Bisse: Shine Bright like a Diamond

Santa didn’t bring you everything your heart desired? Why not treat yourself! I prefer diamonds but if that’s not in the budget, you can get diamonds of another kind– from Natura Bisse. I’ve been using Natura Bisse since college, and from the very first Diamond Cream, I was hooked. I spent more time in the […]

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: First Line of Defense

Sometimes basic moisturizers are just not enough. Our skin is an organ, so it can require more TLC that we normally remember to give it. I have a friend who couldn’t get rid of a rough patch on her forehead for almost 6 months. She tried out at least half a dozen moisturizers before she […]

Best Beauty of 2012: And the Award Goes to…

Beauty products are like tech products – they just get better and more effective every year. I mean did you know that CC cream is already a thing? I feel like BB just made her first appearance! Some beauty buys can be trendy (dark ‘90s lip liner hasn’t aged so well), but these top choices […]

K. Hall Designs Lavender Cream: Field of Purple Dreams

This is how much I love lavender – I went all the way to Provence (aka the lavender mecca of the world) to visit the museum. As you can probably tell, I’m a real advocate of aromatherapy. When I was in France, I bought a years supply of pure oil, but I’ve finally run out. […]

June Jacobs Spa Collection: DIY Spa

High-end hotels started carrying the June Jacobs Spa Collection a few years ago – but rather than waiting for luxury to find you, why not make your own? Now that snow has started falling for some of you, I recommend a nice warm spa day – at home! Just pick up a few of these […]

Organic Pharmacy Ultra Dry Skin Cream: An Extra Winter Layer

As the name Organic Pharmacy suggests, this cream (exclusively at Barneys New York for $79) has all of the potency you need with none of the chemicals! The downside it’s gets you pretty greasy. I wouldn’t put it on before going out, especially if you’re wearing silk or something else delicate. But if you’re a […]

Malie Organics: Paradise in a Bottle

The first thing I did when I arrived in Hawaii was find the best beauty products. Why bring home to paradise? Plus, it’s good to always be switching up your beauty routine, so I waited until I got here to pamper myself with some local options. Malie Organics is snob luxury at its best. Made […]
