Arcona Skincare Trifecta: Three’s Company

I’ve been using Arcona’s skincare products on and off for years. My absolute favorite was the kiwi mask, which of course got discontinued. A girlfriend told me that their raspberry resurfacing peel ($68) does the same thing, but I didn’t believe her (plus, I had Renée Rouleau’s amazing triple berry peel).

Instant Refresher: In-Office Glycolic Peel

I’ve been looking like dead woman walking lately…uch. I’ve been tired and stressed and the effects are showing up on my face. I’ve also had minor breakouts that don’t seem to be going away…this is not acceptable!!! I stopped by one of New York magazine’s top rated dermatologists Dr. Schultz’s office (his office is about as luxe as it gets…), to see if there’s anything he can recommend.

Freeze 24-7 SkinSmoothie Retexturizing Glycolic Pads 10%

Freeze 24-7 IceCream Double Scoop Anti-Aging Moisturizer ($105) is one of my fave products, so I was excited when the brand announced that they were launching something new, SkinSmoothie Retexturizing Glycolic Pads 10% ($75). I’ve been all for glycolic exfoliation ever since meeting with famed dermatologist Dr. Schultz who swore that after daily sunscreen application, […]

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Monday to Sunday Bamboo Muslins

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Monday to Sunday Bamboo Muslins

Tina and I have loved Liz Earle’s cleanser for years – mostly because it comes with muslin washcloths! Aurelia ups the stakes by crafting these from bamboo, which is naturally anti-bacterial. It’s woven so finely that it feels like a cloud, yet still gently exfoliates to wash away dead skin and give you a nice rosy glow.

KORA Organics by Miranda Kerr

KORA Organics by Miranda Kerr: Role Model

Miranda Kerr’s skincare line, KORA Organics, is now available on NET-A-PORTER – we’re merely a click away from supermodel gorgeousness (that’s what I tell myself anyway). Between Kerr’s collection and Josie Maran cosmetics, it seems models have a love of all-natural beauty.

BelleCore HoneyBelle Bodybuffer: Cellu-later?

Most reviews of BelleCore’s HoneyBelle Bodybuffer are positively glowing, which is exactly what your skin will be doing once you’ve tried this. I can’t speak to whether or not it “breaks the bonds of cellulite,” but when I tested it out at the store, I ended up looking as buffed up as a showroom car. […]

Baby Foot Easy Pack: Heal from Heels

I’ll admit it – I don’t treat my feet very well. High heels have been a staple for me since college and that’s not going to change anytime soon. No amount of pedicures or magic potions even begins to tackle the rough patches on my heels and the balls of my feet. I’ve finally found […]

Kai Body Buffer: One for the Record Books

My showers clock in at record time. I can shampoo and condition my hair, wash my body, and clean my face in two minutes flat, but I’m always looking for ways to beat my own time. Just as Olympic runners cut down on their records with the help of the best gear, so I will […]

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 […]
