The 5 Best Summer Products: Hot Enough For You?

Now that I’ve reviewed a whole powder room’s worth of summer products, from pre-sun to mid to post-sun, my sultry-weather arsenal is complete. I’ve pared down the goods to the best of the best, so you can combat the sun – and also enjoy it! – and meet September with a radiant face, super-smooth skin, […]

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 […]

Dr.Hauschka’s New Body Moisturizers

Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Body Moisturizer is one of my faves so I was excited to see that the branch launched three new formulations, each for a specific skin need and all with great aromatherapeutic properties! My local health food store has a big selection of Dr. Hauschka’s products and they’re very discerning about the beauty […]

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) […]

Juice Beauty Green Apple Firming Body Moisturizer: An Apple a Day Keeps the Dry Skin Away

I’ll just get out with it: I currently have gross dry patches on my upper arm, elbows, and knees. I’m not sure if it’s all the recent traveling (in the last six weeks, I have flown to Italy twice, and I also spent a week in NYC in between for Fashion Week), but something has […]

Valentina by Valentino

It rarely happens that Valentino hosts events in their showroom, but they did just that last week when they invited a few bloggers to check-out their new fragrance, Valentina ($80 for 1.7oz; $108 for 2.7oz). Of course I was very distracted by the clothes (see below!), but once I got over how beautiful the lace […]

In-Flight Hydration Arsenal: Reaching High Altitudes of Moisture

I have been non stop traveling since this year started. From Florence to Las Vegas to New York to Florida (and next month Cancun!), saying that my skin and everything else for that matter, is dehydrated is an understatement. I am completely tapped out!  While on a flight, I drink water like crazy, but I […]
