Chantecaille is like Tom Ford…it’s pretty hard for the brand to do any wrong so trying anything from their line is very low risk. They recently launched a new skincare product, Rose de Mai Cream, which is infused with rose de mai, a rare (read pricey – it only blooms for three weeks in May) ingredient known for its anti-aging capabilities.
This may sound crazy, but in Asia, most women visit the spa daily. The amenities are so grand and luxurious! I’ve rarely found comparable services or facilities in the US, which makes the discovery of ESPA all the more thrilling. I visited ESPA at the Joule in Dallas, and with over 350 spas in 55 countries, there’s a good chance you can find one in your area too!
I learned a lot of things when, in the spring, I went to Japan for two weeks, like…the women have amazing skin and take their regimens very seriously and I’m not just talking about the geisha. Unfortunately even in the major department stores most people don’t speak a lick of English so discovering new products wasn’t as easy as I hoped.
If you’re a lazy Snob or busy Snob (or just a Beauty Snob in general), you’ll appreciate this roundup.

Since I’ve discovered spray-on moisturizer, though, I’ve realized that it doesn’t have to be one over the other.
As we all know, oxygen is vital to living, and not just so we can breathe – a depletion of it ages skin. I’ve had amazing oxygen facials, but just once a month? Is that all my skin gets? I want it daily, and my wish, it seems, is Natura Bissé’s command.
I love the Avene line more with each product I try. I was sent a variety of sunscreens for summer, and my favorite by far has been the High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50.
It’s no secret that big companies more often than not try to cut costs with no regard to the effects on the planet or even the consumer as long as it helps their bottom lines. That’s exactly why a few years ago a number of them started using plastic exfoliating beads in their facial and body scrubs – versus natural products like coffee grounds or nuts.
Time and time again we’re told to treat the delicate skin around our eyes in a gentle manner. Unfortunately sometimes when you’re half asleep applying your eye cream at 6AM with no time to spare can be easier said than done, which is why I love eye products that don’t require actually touching your eye area.
