My Home Spa Ritual with Koh Gen Do

My Home Spa Ritual with Koh Gen Do

The bath is my sanctuary. A nice, long soak solves all most problems, whether it’s exhaustion, a headache, an oncoming cold, or just general crankiness. It’s about as close to the Fountain of Youth as we’re going to get. You step in after a long day, and reemerge fresh and new.

Buff Her

Buff Her: The House of Exfoliation

Who isn’t a sucker for good packaging? There are so many fantastic products out there that it’s one of the key things we all use to pick one over the other. It’s also one of the key things that comes into play when I’m considering trying a product from a brand I’m unfamiliar with – especially when it’s face and not body.

Clarisonic Launches Pedi For Your Feet

Clarisonic Launches Pedi For Your Feet

To know me is to know that I love and swear by my Clarisonic, so when the brand comes out with new products I’m always, ALWAYS, always excited. Their newest launch is called Pedi ($199), and it’s basically a Clarisonic for your feet.

Arcona Skincare Trifecta

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, … Continue reading Freeze 24-7 SkinSmoothie Retexturizing Glycolic Pads 10%

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. … Continue reading BelleCore HoneyBelle Bodybuffer: Cellu-later?
