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).

Fresh Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask

Fresh Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask

I met the founders of Fresh a few weeks ago to check out their latest launch, Fresh Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask ($130). Despite being bought by LVMH, the two founders, Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg, are still fiercely involved which is always refreshing to see.

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.

By Terry Radiance Renewing Mask: A Good Night’s Sleep

My latest obsession is By Terry’s Radiance Renewing Mask! It’s the best complexion brightening and deep hydrating mask I’ve ever tried – not a bit oily. I’ve given it a regular spot in my beauty routine. I apply the mask to my face and neck before I go to sleep and leave it on all […]

Citta By Roger Moisture Peeling Lotion & Supreme Treatment Facial Program

Chinese women care more about skincare than we do about makeup (wouldn’t you rather look pretty barefaced than all dolled up?), so I love to try different Asian brands in this arena. My newest find is Citta by Roger, an extensive line headed up by Chinese skincare guru to the stars, Roger Zheng. My two […]

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 […]

LiftLab Daily Cleanser & Detox Mask: Don’t Scratch the Surface

Our hectic schedules sometimes leave our skin regimens with something to be desired. As a working mom, there are days when I’m lucky if I get to step into the shower at all. So, I’m always on the lookout for new products to help me multitask like this three-in-one LiftLab cleanser/mask/exfoliant! For days when you’re […]

Travel Snob Essentials

Travel Snob Essentials: Fly Girl

I’m on a plane almost weekly, and there are a few essential products that I always bring with me. On long haul trips to Europe or Asia, I don’t wear any makeup. Why clog your pores when the people around you are probably sleeping anyway? In spite of its deceptively appropriate shape, the aisle in a plane is not a runway…

Chantecaille Detox Clay Mask: Rest and Resculpt

There’s no better time for a detox mask than after New Year’s (not to mention after all the bad things we did during the long holiday season!). Start off 2013 rejuvenated with a mask that will bring you back to a natural state of purity (even if that’s a lost cause for the rest of […]
