Diptyque Velvet Hand Lotion: Rule With a Velvet Glove

Now this is the kind if lotion you leave out for guests – it’s not showing off if you’re giving them something to indulge in! Diptyque‘s Velvet Hand Lotion is creamy, light as air yet rich as butter, and deeply penetrating and emulsive. What more could you ask of a lotion?! With organic floral water … Continue reading Diptyque Velvet Hand Lotion: Rule With a Velvet Glove

Jurlique Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer: Soft and Strong

Don’t ever use Purell (well, unless it’s an emergency – like, God forbid, you need to use a Porta-Potty!). Purell is pure alcohol and will dry out your hands to a crisp. After prolonged use your hands will suffer irreparable damage. Instead, Jurlique Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer has a formulation that cleans and actually hydrates your … Continue reading Jurlique Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer: Soft and Strong

Vanicream Cleansing Bar

I love this cleansing bar, not for my face but my hands – for after make up application. Regular soap won’t cut it especially if you are using your hands to apply foundation, which you should because it’s the best way to achieve consistent coverage. I bet you have a hand towel that is stained … Continue reading Vanicream Cleansing Bar

Barielle Total Care Cream

Are you neglecting your feet because it’s winter and they’re hidden in boots?  Okay, I’m guilty of the same but when I saw how dry and cracked my heels were last week I decided to take serious action!  Heels are a funny part of the body, the skin doesn’t absorb or retain moisture well so … Continue reading Barielle Total Care Cream

New Caldrea Balsam Figleaf Collection

For holiday Caldrea has come-out with two new scents Balsam Figleaf and Peppermint Amaryllis. I haven’t sampled the Peppermint (not a fan of minty anything, in fact my aversion runs so deep that until a few weeks ago I was still using bubble gum Barbie toothpaste!), but I was sent a sample of their hand … Continue reading New Caldrea Balsam Figleaf Collection

Frugal Snob: Kiss My Face Charity Holiday Collection

Anything that gets the seal of approval of my local Health Nut store, Fairway’s organic/health section, and Whole Foods usually gets my vote – and Kiss My Face is prominently displayed at all three (note that if you’re in NYC some items from the line are currently on sale at Fairway:-)). A favorite of those … Continue reading Frugal Snob: Kiss My Face Charity Holiday Collection

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Soap Sets

A few weeks ago I was a little early for a lunch date at Bouchon Bakery in the Time Warner Center, so I wandered over to Crabtree & Evelyn to stock-up on soaps. Crabtree is one of the few places I can still get non-liquid hand soap – even L’Occitane has been cutting back on … Continue reading Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Soap Sets

L’Occitane 2010 Holiday Collection

About an hour before I headed to JFK to board a flight to San Francisco I stopped by L’Occitane’s Columbus Avenue store to check-out their 2010 Holiday collection – and boy was it worth the rush! The weather in NYC has quickly turned to being unbearably dry, so I’ve completely changed my skincare routine and … Continue reading L’Occitane 2010 Holiday Collection
