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 […]

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) […]

Prada Candy: I Want Candy!

There are people who don’t like to smell like food, and I can relate if it’s, say, a rib eye steak scent, but candy?!  Bring it on! I recently tested Prada Candy at their counter and literally stood there drooling. I ended up only getting the body scrub since it’s not quite as strong as the perfume or […]

Bliss FatGirlSlim Treatment Kit

No matter your size, odds are you’re at least somewhat self conscious when it comes to stripping down to your bikini — especially if you find yourself, like I did, next to a parade of svelte tanned bodies in South Beach. As anyone who has been in that situation knows, every little extra bit of […]

Ole Henriksen and Carol’s Daughter Salt Detoxes: Take It With a Grain of Salt

Detoxes are very popular this time of year. Whole Foods has an entire display with everything you need for a master cleanse, but cleansing from the outside is also very powerful. It’s easy to forget your skin is the largest organ – did you know you shed a million skin cells a day? That amounts […]

LIV GRN Cherry Wood Body Lotion and Shower Gel: Spoil Yourself Green

It scares me how many people I know have cancer. And when I think of how we inadvertently harm our own bodies, especially when we’re just trying to clean and moisturize – it scares me more. Skin is the largest organ and anything you put on it is absorbed directly into the blood stream. So […]

Frugal Snob: UK Brand, I Love…Cosmetics, Comes to the US

I don’t tend to like knock-offs and I Love…Cosmetics was clearly inspired by Philosophy, but I still can’t help loving the line…look at the colors! The taglines! The packaging! The UK brand just recently expanded into the US and is now available at Duane Reade and Wal-Mart stores here in NYC. I was sent the […]
