Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl Hand Cream: Lifestyles of the Rich and Moisturized

Whenever I put on hand cream, I instinctively rub it into my cuticles since they are always in need of help. I’m not sure how much it’s doing, but it’s better than nothing, right? Most of the time I get a manicure just to clean up my dry and yucky-looking cuticles. Now, with the onset … Continue reading Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl Hand Cream: Lifestyles of the Rich and Moisturized

L’Occitane Olive Hand Cream: From Vineyard to Hand

It’s not even full-blown winter (okay, so I do live in Southern California!), and my hands are already taking a beating. As much as I love my L’Occitane hand creams for daily use – especially their Shea Butter – sometimes I need something less greasy. Like when I’m driving. That’s when my hands feel particularly … Continue reading L’Occitane Olive Hand Cream: From Vineyard to Hand

Eve Echo Hand Soap and Santizers: Clean Hands, Clean Conscience

I’m very mindful of the hand soaps I buy mainly because my son has a bit of an obsession with clean hands (could be worse, I suppose!). He will actually stand outside the bathroom door when his cousins or friends are inside, shouting, “I don’t hear you washing your hands!” In fact, he washes his … Continue reading Eve Echo Hand Soap and Santizers: Clean Hands, Clean Conscience

New Limited Edition Buys from L’Occitane

L’Occitane, the ruler when it comes to shea butter, verbena, and almond – at least in my book! – always has great holiday gifts, limited edition sets, and stocking stuffers. Better yet, they’ve got a ton of value sets so you can load-up on favorites for yourself.

Yves Saint Laurent Le Smoking Manicure Couture Terriblement Noir: Slip Into Your Smoking Jacket

They are testing their sense of suave this November with the release of a tuxedo-inspired … Continue reading Yves Saint Laurent Le Smoking Manicure Couture Terriblement Noir: Slip Into Your Smoking Jacket

Votre Vu Bébé Duette Luxe Lips and Hand Crème: Living Hand to Mouth

In case you haven’t noticed, two-in-one products are all the rage right now. But are they really worth it? Are they that much easier and more convenient? And I can’t help but think, doesn’t the quality diminish when the emphasis is put on the concept over the actual product? In the case of Votre Vu‘s … Continue reading Votre Vu Bébé Duette Luxe Lips and Hand Crème: Living Hand to Mouth

CLEAN Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream: Two Birds With One Cream

Purell is so bad for you hands, it is pure alcohol and will dry out your skin. It’s so terrible I didn’t even use it when I had newborns, I just washed my hands a lot. I use a Jurlique moisturizing hand sanitizer but it just doesn’t dry out your hands, it doesn’t add moisture. … Continue reading CLEAN Anti-Bacterial Moisturizing Hand Cream: Two Birds With One Cream

Malin + Goetz Rum and Lime Handwash Set

Aside from being a killer workout, one of the great things about going to Barry’s Bootcamp is that their locker rooms are loaded with products from Malin + Goetz. Aside from the brand’s Rum Tonic I haven’t tried anything from them, so when I went to Barry’s it was a great opportunity to familiarize myself … Continue reading Malin + Goetz Rum and Lime Handwash Set
