Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen: Advice to My Younger Self

I recently posted a fun Instagram asking followers what advice they would give their younger selves. The most popular response? “USE SUNSCREEN!” I can definitely relate.

Frugal Snob: Be Delectable

Somehow it feels like every week a different friend of mine is going through some sort of a crisis! Whether career issues, boyfriend issues, family issues…I find myself putting together care packages more often than I can recount. I’m always looking for fun things that will put a smile on someone’s face and that’s where lines like Be Delectable come in.

Bliss Micro Magic Spa-Powered Microdermabrasion Treatment

I can’t even tell you how many people have bought a Clarisonic because of my raving about it. I used to use it everyday after my workouts at Barry’s Bootcamp and there was almost no day when at least one person didn’t ask me about it. Even though it has been months since I’ve used it, I still have people coming up to me every so often at the gym to tell me they bought one because they saw me using it.

Renée Rouleau Vitamin C Eye Brightener: Fake It ‘Til You Make It

I’m a master when it comes to faking bright eyes and flawless skin. Applying concealers and skin tone correctors beneath tinted moisturizer has been my go-to for years because like most of us, I certainly don’t get a full eight hours of sleep. Even those who do aren’t immune to dark circles.

Ole Henriksen: The Game has Changed

There aren’t many products I feel compelled to strong-arm my friends into, but Ole Henriksen (pronounced ooh-la, as in ooh-la-la!) is one of them. The Lemon Strip Flash peel, Walnut complexion scrub, and Ultimate Lift eye gel are must-haves!

Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster

I’m one of those people who only gets “tanned” when she misses a patch of skin and accidentally gets burned first. While I love the sun I always shield myself from it to prevent both wrinkles and burns. I wish I could tan; maybe it’s because the grass is always greener on the other side, but tan people seem to have it so much easier than us pale girls!

Giorgio Armani Beauty CC Cream & Concealer: Bye Bye, BB!

Move over BB! There’s a new cream in the beauty department – CC. It makes faking flawless skin easier than ever. No Photoshop or complexion perfecting apps required! In 25 years we’ll probably have ZZ, but for now this is getting the job done well.

From the Lab Transforming Hair Cleanser No. 724: One-Stop Shower

I have no fewer than ten products lining my tub right now. It’s gotten so bad that when my husband and son shower, they have no idea what to use. I’m always trying new shampoos, conditioners, masks, and oils, but I just discovered something that covers all the bases – Transforming Hair Cleanser No. 724.

Valmont: Luxury Spa Beauty Products

Last year when I went to Thailand my friend Zoe (who works at the Plaza Athenee where there is a Valmont Spa), she could not stop talking my ear off about how great Valmont is. She said it would change my skin and that she swears by their facials (Plaza Athenee uses only Valmont products for their facials and I’m going to finally get one their next month!).
