Aptiva Natural Soaps

Apivita has been around since the 70s so I’m scolding myself that it wasn’t until very recently that I found out about the line. What caught my attention was that their extensive range is based on the honey bee (love honey!! Eating it and applying it topically…). The brand’s soaps were the first to be […]

Marianella Soap: Taking the Good Without the Bad

More and more of our close friends are being diagnosed with cancer, and it makes me wonder – is it all of the products we’re putting on ourselves? Maybe we need just to go back to the basics. A simple bar of soap. Not just any ordinary one, though! Natural soap, like that masterfully and […]

Argan Oil: Good for Skin?

Have I been living under a rock? Here I thought argan oil was a hair savior meanwhile it can be used for pretty much everything from toning to hydrating skin – studies have shown that you can even eat it for heart-health benefits comparable to olive oil. After being introduced to Kahina Giving Beauty, a […]

Frugal Snob: Cleanlogic Soap + Sponge

Possibly the coolest product I’ve come across this year thus far, Cleanlogic Soap + Sponge ($4.49) is literally a bar of soap with a sponge inside. It sounded so weird when I read the box…all I could think was a soap with a sponge inside…what the hell!???? But it’s awesome! It not only cleans and […]

Shopping Find: The Detox Market

I’m completely obsessed with The Detox Market. I’m not even sure how exactly I stumbled upon this website, but they’ve got a killer selection of beauty products, including a number of under-the-radar brands. They specialize in non-toxic, natural brands and they have a store in Venice, California…how I missed it when I was on Abbot […]

Sella Premium Cleansing Bar: This Soap is Dope

Meet the most ingenious soap-holding method I have ever seen. Honestly, that prospect is what interested me about this product in the first place. I have all these disintegrating soap bars in my shower and by my sink; no matter what kind of water-dispersing soap dish I get, my soap always fall apart. Once I […]

Molton Brown Gets into the Anti-Aging Game

Molton Brown is up there for me with Tom Ford and Oribe as being unable to do any wrong. Their products are always not only reliably effective, but they smell divine and are packaged impeccably. I mean…do you see the image above!? How chic is that cap? I love the combo of the reflective silver […]

Prada Candy: I Want Candy!

There are people who don’t like to smell like food, and I can relate if it’s, say, a rib eye steak scent, but candy?!  Bring it on! I recently tested Prada Candy at their counter and literally stood there drooling. I ended up only getting the body scrub since it’s not quite as strong as the perfume or […]

LIV GRN Cherry Wood Body Lotion and Shower Gel: Spoil Yourself Green

It scares me how many people I know have cancer. And when I think of how we inadvertently harm our own bodies, especially when we’re just trying to clean and moisturize – it scares me more. Skin is the largest organ and anything you put on it is absorbed directly into the blood stream. So […]
