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 […]

I Love My Muff

I spotted I Love My Muff on a recent Henri Bendel shopping trip and a few of their products were on sale so I figured…why not try!? In theory the brand is very similar to Sweetspot Labs, a company whose products I often use, but unlike Sweetspot they are not made with artificial fragrances. Luckily […]

Ava Anderson

Ava Anderson is a remarkable brand. Not only are the 50-plus products in their eight lines (avaBODY, avaSKIN, avaFACE, avaSUN, avaHAIR, ava SCENT, avaHOME and avaBABY), made without harmful ingredients, but they only contain organic ingredients, many of which are vegan and the entire range is the brainchild of a girl who is only 18!

Vichy CelluDestock Intensive Treatment for Appearance of Cellulite

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. One of the most effective is to build up muscle underneath the fat tissue by doing squats and lunges. These exercises will […]

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 […]
