Dry Brushing: Why You Should Be Doing It

When I was in Thailand I had my first experiences with dry brushing at a spa. I was told it would help not only exfoliate, but stimulate circulation. Makes sense! That’s why I use “rough” scrubs on my body. In speaking with my therapist, however, she also said it was one of the most effective ways to fight cellulite.

Frugal Snob: Yes to Carrots Fragrance Free Line

The number one reason people have bad reactions to skincare and makeup is fragrance. There’s an Armani mascara I love, but it’s scented and my eyes would without fail start to tear within seconds of putting it on – too bad really because I loved the idea of telling people that my eyelashes were scented…

Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Body Milk Lotion: WARNING – Do Not Eat

Packaging isn’t everything in the beauty world, but when a sumptuous product finds its way into equally delectable packaging, the must-have effect goes through the roof. That’s how I feel about everything from Texas-based Farmhouse Fresh beauty, especially their Sweet Cream body milk lotion.

Frugal Snob: Nip + Fab Launches Yoga, Energy Boost, and Detox Blends

Who doesn’t love Rodial and their Boob Job, Crash Diet and other cheekily-named body products? Unfortunately because the amount of actives that are packed in each of them, those products don’t come cheap. What does come cheap is the brand’s diffusion line Nip + Fab and they’ve just launched a new line bath and body products all of which retail for under $10.

The Gnarly Whale: A New…Gnarly…Vegan Range

With a name like The Gnarly Whale you know this brand has to be eco-friendly and vegan…am I right!? And I don’t mean that in a bad way…am totally loving the name and the fact that the brand focuses on using as few ingredients as possible in their all-natural bath and body line-up.

My Home Spa Ritual with Koh Gen Do

My Home Spa Ritual with Koh Gen Do

The bath is my sanctuary. A nice, long soak solves all most problems, whether it’s exhaustion, a headache, an oncoming cold, or just general crankiness. It’s about as close to the Fountain of Youth as we’re going to get. You step in after a long day, and reemerge fresh and new.
