Josie Maran Bear Naked Nail Wipes: The Bare Necessities

I’m in love with Josie Maran’s Bear Naked nail wipes – they take off my dark red polish with just a couple of swipes. I only needed two little pads for all 10 fingers. Josie’s products are all eco-friendly and organic argan oil-infused, so they aren’t harsh like most polish removers that are acetone-based and […]

K. Hall Designs Lavender Cream: Field of Purple Dreams

This is how much I love lavender – I went all the way to Provence (aka the lavender mecca of the world) to visit the museum. As you can probably tell, I’m a real advocate of aromatherapy. When I was in France, I bought a years supply of pure oil, but I’ve finally run out. […]

I wouldn’t put it on before going out, especially if you’re wearing silk or something else delicate. But if you’re a […]

The biggest deal in beauty products these days is neem oil. Not only does it seem to treat and cure every beauty concern you can have, it is incredibly cheap. It’s a vegetable oil pressed from the fruits and seeds of the neem, an evergreen tree endemic to India. The neem tree is also known […]

Soleil Organique Environmental Defense Hand Cream: You’re in Good Hands

I am starting to get a little obsessive about how my hands look, or to be exact, how my hands need to stop aging. It really is true that hands show your true age. I have hand creams galore, but none with sunscreen protection. Until now. Soleil Organique Environmental Defense hand cream contains titanium dioxide, […]
