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 […]

New Limited Edition Buys from L’Occitane

L’Occitane, the ruler when it comes to shea butter, verbena, and almond – at least in my book! – always has great holiday gifts, limited edition sets, and stocking stuffers. Better yet, they’ve got a ton of value sets so you can load-up on favorites for yourself. Holiday Hands Trio ($25) and Shea Travel Treasures($40) […]

Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Soap: It’s Not Just for Eating

The benefits of seaweed isn’t just for keeping your sushi from falling apart. The health benefits are plentiful because it has the broadest range of minerals of any food: the high concentration of iodine means you can use sea salt and get your daily requirements without help from Morton’s; the proteins are great for your […]

Bath Bars from Whole Truth Solutions

With all the stories that have come out recently about fragrances that smell like blood and semen, have urine in them, are made with human poo, or ones that smell like nothing at all, I wouldn’t have been surprised if Whole Truth Solutions’ Cigarettes & Coffee was a stinky mess! But thankfully, far from it. […]

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Body Bar Soap: So Fresh and So Clean

I bought Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Body Bar for my husband and promptly used it myself. I’m usually a shower gel kind of girl, but after my workout, the crisp scent enticed me. Well, I loved it! The tee tree oil tingled and invigorated my exhausted body, and the little exfoliating bits removed all that […]

Frugal Snob: New Crabtree & Evelyn Citron

The fact that I drink copious amounts of tea every day and squeeze half a lemon in each cup is a testament to us all being able to change our taste buds. I used to HATE lemons, it was right up there with mint and peanut butter&jelly (seriously, who thought of that combo?), when it […]

Frugal Snob: Dr. Hauschka Daily Body Care Kit

I planned my trip to India to attend one of my friend’s wedding, but I’ve wanted to go for years. Not only is much of the jewelry that comes from here gorgeous, but I’m very into holistic body care and alternative medicine. I’m so excited to go to Kerala, which is the last stop on […]

New Caldrea Balsam Figleaf Collection

For holiday Caldrea has come-out with two new scents Balsam Figleaf and Peppermint Amaryllis. I haven’t sampled the Peppermint (not a fan of minty anything, in fact my aversion runs so deep that until a few weeks ago I was still using bubble gum Barbie toothpaste!), but I was sent a sample of their hand […]

Frugal Snob: Kiss My Face Charity Holiday Collection

Anything that gets the seal of approval of my local Health Nut store, Fairway’s organic/health section, and Whole Foods usually gets my vote – and Kiss My Face is prominently displayed at all three (note that if you’re in NYC some items from the line are currently on sale at Fairway:-)). A favorite of those […]
