L'Occitane Fall 2014 Collections

L’Occitane Fall 2014 Collections

If I had to pick one brand to use exclusively for the rest of my life it might very well be L’Occitane. It’s among the few brands I turn to every time my skin goes a little nuts with the change of the seasons or I have an unexpected breakout because I can count on their products to get the job done without aggravating my skin

Should You Get Botox to Prevent Wrinkles?

Should You Get Botox to Prevent Wrinkles?

Frown lines, forehead furrows, and lines around the eyes are due to the repetitive folding of the skin from facial expressions. The more you move the muscles, the more quickly lines and wrinkles will form.

Natura Bissé Diamond Life Infusion Retinol Eye Serum

Natura Bissé Diamond Life Infusion Retinol Eye Serum: Passing the Eye Test

This new eye serum from Natura Bissé blows everything other brand’s out of the water. Summer is rough on skin, especially when you’re outside all of the time with your tots (amusement parks, beaches, pools…it’s unavoidable). I was horrified to discover new lines around my eyes, to the point that I was ready to try something extreme.

Proactiv

Proactiv+ Emergency Blemish Relief

I have tried so hard to find products that keep my skin as effectively clear as Proactiv+ because I would much, much rather – as shallow as it sounds – have Chanel on my vanity than Proactiv+.

Dr. Verallo-Rowell On Skincare Ingredients To Avoid

It’s an unfortunate truth that many of the most common skincare ingredients can be very irritating, even to skin that isn’t particularly sensitive. Worse yet you’re no less likely to find some of them in luxury products than you are in drugstore ones…

Now’s The Time To Get A Facial

I got the Lierac Magnificence Age Defense Facial at PHYTO Universe ($200 for 55 minutes) yesterday and I feel like a new person! So many layers of exfoliating, firming, and hydrating serums and creams were applied that I left the spa with bare skin that was actually beaming (seriously…my skin was glowing…).

In Depth Into Chantecaille at Their NYC Headquarters

In Depth Into Chantecaille at Their NYC Headquarters

I stopped by Chantecaille’s glossy Soho headquarters a few days ago to meet with Kristen Ott, who handles the brand’s public relations and Eddie Hernandez who is the brand’s in-house makeup pro (that’s his tattoo and arm above!).

RéVive Intensité Line Erasing Serum

RéVive Intensité Line Erasing Serum: Tight & Right

Forget injectables! The latest serum from RéVive imitates the firming and tightening without any needle needed (and without a frozen, overdone brow as a result).

Dolce & Gabbana Skincare Collection

Dolce & Gabbana Skincare Collection

Dolce & Gabbana has gotten into the skincare game going off of their successful foray into makeup and the results are fantastic. It all starts with the completely on-brand packaging – a mix of gold and white that’s at once luxe and sophisticated while being completely eye-catching (remember their leopard compact?!).
