Ling Energy Lift Facial: Just like Heaven

I love spas. I will travel to the ends of the earth for a good spa, so imagine how excited I was to find one of the best in my backyard! The SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills has always been a favorite spot for dinner and drinks. The Philippe Stark design excites the senses like no other. But it was only recently that I visited their spa…

Chantecaille Rose de Mai Cream

Chantecaille Summer Collection

Chantecaille is like Tom Ford…it’s pretty hard for the brand to do any wrong so trying anything from their line is very low risk. They recently launched a new skincare product, Rose de Mai Cream, which is infused with rose de mai, a rare (read pricey – it only blooms for three weeks in May) ingredient known for its anti-aging capabilities.

ESPA

ESPA: The Great Escape

This may sound crazy, but in Asia, most women visit the spa daily. The amenities are so grand and luxurious! I’ve rarely found comparable services or facilities in the US, which makes the discovery of ESPA all the more thrilling. I visited ESPA at the Joule in Dallas, and with over 350 spas in 55 countries, there’s a good chance you can find one in your area too!

Spray-On Moisturizer: Just a Spritz

If you’re a lazy Snob or busy Snob (or just a Beauty Snob in general), you’ll appreciate this roundup. Everyday feels like a race to the finish line for me, and to keep up, I often find myself prioritizing the care of my face over that my body. Since I’ve discovered spray-on moisturizer, though, I’ve realized that it doesn’t have to be one over the other.

Natura Bissé Oxygen Cream

Natura Bissé Oxygen Cream: The Perfect Summer Cocktail

As we all know, oxygen is vital to living, and not just so we can breathe – a depletion of it ages skin. I’ve had amazing oxygen facials, but just once a month? Is that all my skin gets? I want it daily, and my wish, it seems, is Natura Bissé’s command.

Avene High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50: Blend It Up

I love the Avene line more with each product I try. I was sent a variety of sunscreens for summer, and my favorite by far has been the High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50.

Widespread Ban on Plastic Microbeads in Scrubs Possibly on the Horizon

Widespread Ban on Plastic Microbeads in Scrubs Possibly on the Horizon

It’s no secret that big companies more often than not try to cut costs with no regard to the effects on the planet or even the consumer as long as it helps their bottom lines. That’s exactly why a few years ago a number of them started using plastic exfoliating beads in their facial and body scrubs – versus natural products like coffee grounds or nuts.
