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 […]

Most cellulite fighters are nothing more than shrewd marketing. There’s no proven way to fight cellulite with lotions or potions however there are ways minimize the appearance of those pesky pockets of fat.

Bliss Fat Girl Six Pack

In his book “Do it or Age Quickly,” JB Berns says that one of the ways you can help your body better digest is by rubbing your belly counterclockwise with your left hand. I’ll often do this for a few minutes before getting out of bed when I’m planning on hitting the gym for an […]

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 […]

Kat Burki Body Lotion: Simple Sophistication

I’m a sucker for luxe packaging and Kat Burki has mastered it. Much like more widely known brands like Tom Ford and Chanel, Kat Burki opts for clean and simple packaging that just looks expensive (fittingly, like Tom Ford and Chanel, Burki’s products don’t come cheap…).

I’m majorly obsessed with Mario Badescu and the brand doesn’t get nearly the attention it deserves! It’s actually odd that we don’t hear more about MB because they’ve got a huge celebrity following (everyone from Jennifer Aniston to Demi Moore). Most of their products have a clean, fresh smell; they’re simply packaged, free of fillers, […]

L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Collection

What better time than right in the middle of the National Cherry Blossom Festival to highlight L’Occitane’s Cherry Blossom Collection? Is anyone in D.C. right now?? I’ve never been during their Cherry Blossom season, but the photos I’ve seen are unbelievable! Not to mention Cherry Blossoms are just one more reason, on an already long […]

Moroccanoil Launches Skincare

Moroccanoil launched in the U.S. about three years ago and ever since argan hair oils have been all the rage. I discovered the brand’s oil a few seasons ago when they worked on the hair looks for J. Mendel. They were able to achieve a controlled frizzy look unlike any I had seen before and […]
