Hydroxatone BB Cream

Few skincare/beauty products are getting as much buzz as BB Creams right now. I haven’t had much experience with them mostly because I’m loyal to my Sensai liquid foundation, but I was sent a sample of Hydroxatone BB Cream ($49.95), so figured I’d give the product a whirl. BB Cream stands for “blemish balm” or […]

Prevage Triple Defense Shield SPF 50 Sunscreen PA +++

Hands down the BEST sunscreen I have ever, ever, EVER used is Prevage Triple Defense Shield SPF 50 Sunscreen PA +++ ($79). The brush applicator is totally genius. Not only does it make for an easy, controlled application, but you don’t waste any product (think about how much lotion you waste by first applying it […]

Sunday Riley Cashmere SPF 30 Sun Defense: Your Sunday Best

I’ve been crushing on Sunday Riley‘s products for over a year now, and recently, I started using her Cashmere SPF 30 Sun Defense (I blend it with my foundation or BB cream for an extra glow!). As the name suggests, this sunscreen makes my skin as soft as cashmere – with no weird sunscreen smell […]

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20: The Cream Supreme

Right now, I am in Taiwan, the Land of Flawless Skin…where even 60-year-old women glow with natural grace. Instead of getting envious, I get curious. Their secret? BB cream. I wrote about these creams a year ago, but most were Asian brands you couldn’t find in the US or Europe. Now it seems every brand […]

Philosophy Help Me SPF 30 Retinol Day Treatment

For the longest time the only thing I looked to Philosophy for were bath/body products (think Mimosa scented body wash), which now I can’t even believe! For some reason a company that made Cinnamon Buns body products didn’t seem like a brand that I could trust to make skincare that won’t leave me broken out. […]

Shu Uemura UV Armor High-Protection Sun-Protector Face Cream: Armed and Safe

The first thing I do when I arrive in Asia is go Shu Uemura shopping. I try all the colors at the counter, a tradition I truly miss at home in the States. Even though I can shop online in the US, certain products are still unavailable, and I have no idea why. Like the […]

Soleil Organique Sunscreen

If you aren’t convinced that Soleil Organique is stellar from Beauty Snob Kelly’s reviews, hopefully this will convince you. The brand specializes in SPF products including ones for areas often overlooked like the hands and eyes, so it’s little surprise that when it comes to traditional suncare products for the face and body, they’ve got […]

Hampton Sun Continuous Mists

I’m in Vegas at the moment and though it’s “only” 106 degrees – i.e. less than the 110 degrees I’ve been practicing hot yoga in – it’s still quite dangerous for someone as pale as I am to be laying out in the sun. Sadly, given how pale I am, I love the heat, especially […]
