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 […]

Best Beauty of 2012: And the Award Goes to…

Beauty products are like tech products – they just get better and more effective every year. I mean did you know that CC cream is already a thing? I feel like BB just made her first appearance! Some beauty buys can be trendy (dark ‘90s lip liner hasn’t aged so well), but these top choices […]

Dorissiderm Bio-Cellulose Peptide Repair Mask: Peel and Polish

I have an arsenal of facemasks to rival those of most spas – from SKII to lesser-known Asian brands – and I have literally tried them all. I recently discovered one from Dr. Kendrick that is life-changing. (I don’t use that term lightly, having found only a handful of products worthy of it!) Instead of […]

The label promises a “brighter, more even-toned, and exceptionally radiant” complexion after 14 days of use, but I decided to wait a full month before updating you on the status of this Sleeping Facial. The reason: I just wasn’t so sure I had seen any results, but I wanted to be fair to Korres. Plus, […]
