Shiseido Limited Edition Honey Cake

Act quick! After this week is up you won’t be able to get Shiseido’s Honey Cakes Soap ($8.50) anymore! I just tried the pink one (shame on me for waiting this long…), and it smells amazing, while also moisturizing skin. I still prefer liquid hand soap in the shower, but this is perfect to keep … Continue reading Shiseido Limited Edition Honey Cake

June Jacobs Spa Collection: DIY Spa

High-end hotels started carrying the June Jacobs Spa Collection a few years ago – but rather than waiting for luxury to find you, why not make your own?

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 … Continue reading Aptiva Natural Soaps

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 … Continue reading Marianella Soap: Taking the Good Without the Bad

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 … Continue reading Argan Oil: Good for Skin?

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 … Continue reading Frugal Snob: Cleanlogic Soap + Sponge

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 … Continue reading Shopping Find: The Detox Market

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 … Continue reading Sella Premium Cleansing Bar: This Soap is Dope
