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 … Continue reading Prada Candy: I Want Candy!
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 … Continue reading Bliss FatGirlSlim Treatment Kit
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 … Continue reading Ole Henriksen and Carol’s Daughter Salt Detoxes: Take It With a Grain of Salt
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.

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!

I was sent the … Continue reading Frugal Snob: UK Brand, I Love…Cosmetics, Comes to the US

The only reason I even tried it is because it was black and call me juvenile, but the thought of lathering up in black scrub had fun appeal! When I actually did it however I realized that the … Continue reading H2O Plus Spa Sea Moss Black Sand Scrub
If you didn’t want to get pampered in Budapest before, you will after using most anything from Omorovicza. The line’s founders were inspired by the mineral-rich, healing waters found in the thermal baths over there to create their skincare range, which they worked on with a Nobel-prize winning laboratory of dermatology. Around the same time … Continue reading Omorovicza Gold Sugar Scrub
I am totally ready for my self-tanners and spray sessions! Not just because I’m eager to look beach-perfect in leg-baring dresses, but because my exfoliated and polished skin is in prime tanning condition. No, I haven’t been indulging in extra spa sessions. I have been using Clarisea‘s Clarifying Salt Scrub since February. This is a … Continue reading Clarisea Clarifying Salt Scrub: Make Yourself Clear!
I stopped by The Plaza Beauty section in the underground mall at The Plaza Hotel last week and was completely floored at how much has changed down there! The last time I stopped by was for the opening party of Todd English’s Food Hall (amazing by the way for a post-shopping pick-me-up), and that was … Continue reading Edible Beauty: Juara
