Frugal Snob: Dove Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Body Wash

For anyone on a budget looking for beauty products to skimp on, the first thing to do is stop buying expensive body wash because drugstore ones are great. Hands down the best, in my opinion, has always been Dove. Their line of moisturizing washes don’t have a thick detergent-like lather, but rather a smooth and soft one and, just like its name indicates, the formulation is moisturizing.

Frugal Snob: Yes to Grapefruit Spot Correcting Body Cream

There are countless face creams that fight dark spots, but I rarely see any body creams that fight them. I love all Yes to products; I’ve tried dozens of them and have yet to come across one that isn’t effective, so I was intrigued by Yes to Grapefruit spot correcting body cream.

Mama Mio Launches Workout-Inspired Products

I’ve been a fan of Mama Mio since they launched because they advocate beauty and fitness. They don’t promise that their products are going to magically make you slender or toned, but they say that if you take care of your body and use their products you’ll see results and I’ve always trusted them because of their honest approach.

Shea Terra Organics

Shea Terra Organics

Shea Terra Organics is a natural skin care line made with unique, indigenous ingredients from Africa. The brand hopes to support the economy of third world countries by sourcing all of their ingredients from them. Their main go-to ingredient is shea butter, one of my all-time favorites (thank you L’Occitane!), which they combine with a number of others that have been proven to help heal skin.

Frugal Friday: Epsoak Epsom Salt

With all the luxe salts I buy, my love of baths has recently been turning into a financial liability. Before someone decided to stage an intervention, I took matters into my own hands and tried the DIY route. It doesn’t require a chemistry degree or anything too complicated – just your sense of smell!

The Surprising Beauty Benefits of Honey

Legend has it that Cleopatra bathed in milk and honey…if it was good enough for Cleopatra, reason dictates that there must be some fantastic beauty benefits to honey. Honey, in fact, is a natural humectant meaning it draws water to the skin so it’s awesome this time of year when skin tends to be dry.

(MALIN+GOETZ) Rum Body Wash: Thick and Fabulous

My gym uses only (MALIN+GOETZ) products, which is pretty fancy pants. It’s about the best fancy pants brand for a boutique fitness studio to use because their products have a unique consistency that discourages being wasteful. My favorite is their rum body wash ($36).

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.
