Philosophy’s New Oxygen Boost

I’ve never used Philosophy’s Oxygen Peel (I’m not big on peels…), but it always gets rave reviews so I was curious to try Philosophy’s new Oxygen Boost ($50). The boost sounds more or less like a brightening serum so I figured that it could possibly make my treatment creams, which are all anti-aging moisturizers at […]

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 […]

Ole Henriksen Three Little Wonders

There are so many holiday gift sets that are offered at bargain prices this time of year and it’s easy to get lured in by their prices and end up with a kit that’s just got a bunch of filler/throw-away products, which is why I love Ole Henriksen’s Three Little Wonders ($70 – $101 value). […]

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 […]

I mean how often do you get to speak to the brains behind some of the most luxurious skincare products!? Prevel has been hard at work on the Cellcosmet line, available exclusively […]

L’Occitane Launches New Skincare and Makeup Range

I recently stopped by the Soho L’Occitane store to check-out their new makeup range and skincare line. The color collection is called Pivoine Flora and is formulated with peony extract to soften skin (just like their first makeup collection which they launched about a year ago). I was pretty bummed that they didn’t keep their […]

Dr. Sebagh Rose de Vie Serum: La Vie en Rose

That porcelain-doll skin you’ve always desired? Dr. Sebagh is the first to point out that “perfect skin” is, after all, a fantasy, although his fragrant Rose de Vie Serum will help you get pretty close. The ultimate skin balancer for sensitive skin, it evens tone, redness, and rosacea. After extended use, this intensely moisturizing yet […]
