Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Part One

It’s just 10 short days until Mother’s Day! It can seem daunting to buy gifts for the woman who’s always giving to you. When in doubt, go with beauty products – unlike clothes (which can be hit or miss even with your closest friends), you won’t have to fret about getting the right size. I […]

AHAVA Dead Sea PLANTS Smoothing Body Exfoliator

Happy Earth Month! In honor, I wanted to highlight a great product by one of my favorite eco-friendly brands, AHAVA’s Dead Sea Plants Smoothing Body Exfoliator ($28). I hate sea water because my skin is so sensitive I almost always break out in a rash, the one exception – the dead sea in Israel. Not […]

Project Fig: New Natural Skincare for Intimate Grooming

I’m a big fan of I love My Muff’s wipes because they’re super quick and easy, but below the belt maintenance goes beyond simply refreshing as anyone with ingrowns will tell you, which is where Project Fig comes in. Designed to fight the irritation that often comes with intimate grooming, Project Fig is a natural, facial […]

La Prairie Cellular Mineral Body Exfoliator

People will often rummage through my beauty products and ask me which ones are worth splurging on. One of the brands singled out most often is La Prairie. Are their products worth the money? The answer is – if you can afford it – yes. Trust me I know $125 is a lot for a […]

Sprout Skincare…You Could Almost Eat It

I initially heard about Sprout Skincare via GOOP. Turns out Gwyneth Paltrow is a big fan of the Brooklyn-based brand that makes all of their products by hand in small batches. I figured if it was good enough for Paltrow’s highbrow taste it was certainly something worth looking into and the more research I did, […]

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! […]

skinnyskinny Organic Clementine and Clove Body Scrub

Not to sounds like a PMS’ing you-know-what, but one of my pet peeves is when group fitness instructors go on and on about things that have nothing to do with the class they’re teaching – just tell me what to do especially when your class is only 45minutes! On a recent afternoon I found myself […]

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 […]

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 […]
