Clarins Blush Crème

Clarins Blush Crème: A Brush with Greatness

When it comes to blush, too much of a good thing is downright garish. For perfect application, cream is a must. It gives you control of the amount used as well as a natural finish, as opposed to that cakey look you get from powder. Clarins Blush Crème is my favorite right now because it’s cream-based yet appears matte and very soft, whether you’re using the summery peach or the most vibrant – grenadine.

Bliss Micro Magic Spa-Powered Microdermabrasion Treatment

Bliss Micro Magic Spa-Powered Microdermabrasion Treatment

I can’t even tell you how many people have bought a Clarisonic because of my raving about it. I used to use it everyday after my workouts at Barry’s Bootcamp and there was almost no day when at least one person didn’t ask me about it. Even though it has been months since I’ve used it, I still have people coming up to me every so often at the gym to tell me they bought one because they saw me using it.

Ole Henriksen: The Game has Changed

There aren’t many products I feel compelled to strong-arm my friends into, but Ole Henriksen (pronounced ooh-la, as in ooh-la-la!) is one of them. The Lemon Strip Flash peel, Walnut complexion scrub, and Ultimate Lift eye gel are must-haves!

Paula’s Choice Clear Regular Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment

Don’t get me wrong – sulfur and salicylic acid are miracle workers for treating acne, as is glycolic acid since exfoliating is key to preventing breakouts. But nothing has proven as effective as benzoyl peroxide when it comes to treating my own breakouts.

Best Spring Pastels

Best Spring Pastels: A Glimmer of Shimmer

Remember those pastel – or I should say, pasty – lipsticks we wore in the ninth grade? We all looked like defective Barbies with our frosty blue eye shadow and pale pink lips. Fortunately, the science behind our makeup has only improved since then, as have the trends! Today’s pastels involve just a glimmer of shimmer, rather than a chalky, unflattering consistency.
