DDF Skincare Analysis: Technology is Skin-Deep

I had an in-depth skin analysis from DDF (Doctor’s Dermatologic Formula) at Sephora during Fashion Week. Consultants from the skincare line were doing a free cross-country tour throughout February, and I’m so happy I made it in. I have to thank Roy, the lovely skincare expert who helped me discover I’ve been treating my skin […]

COOLA Launches First Non-SPF Skincare Range

COOLA’s Sport range is one of my go-to SPF lines. It goes on sheer, is non-chalky, and most importantly it’s hypoallergenic and doesn’t clog my pores (I’m so pale and fearful of burns that when it’s hot out I’m a machine when it comes to sunscreen application!). The eco-conscious brand’s products are all packed with […]

Actifirm: How Important is the Outer Layer?

I’m very often drawn to out-of-the-box packaging. In fact if it wasn’t for fantastic outer layers, I probably wouldn’t own 75% of what’s in my beauty arsenal and I’d be a brand loyalist as soon as I discover an effective product. For obvious sensitive skin-related concerns I’m definitely way more adventurous when it comes to […]

Tracy Reese x Clinique: Prints Charming

I’ll concede mint green doesn’t make for the most terribly glamorous of containers, but it’s the bullet that counts: one of my favorite lipstick shades is “Twilight Nude” from Clinique. Defying etiquette, I pulled it out at lunch in New York this week, prompting my girlfriend to exclaim, “I haven’t seen that packaging since high […]
