In the spirit of the 2008 Summer Olympics, Amber and I are teaming up for some synchronized beauty blogging. As trained beauty athletes, we’ve collaborated to provide readers with a dream team of products expertly culled from our extensive reviews.

Using a scale of 1 to 10 (just like the Olympic judges), Amber and I are awarding three winners – gold, silver and bronze – in each category.

To quote Amber, “We’ve been testing out products all summer to identify which cosmetics would be Beijing-bound – if there only were a beauty category.”

The winners of the Summer 2008 Beauty Olympics demonstrate such amazing strength, agility, and endurance – you’d swear they were on steroids!

And the winners are…


Silver (9.4):


Bronze (8.6): T3 Bespoke Labs Featherweight Hair Dryer


Gold (10): Philosophy Amazing Grace Perfumed Body Spritz
Silver (9.1): Hanae Mori Butterfly Eau Fraîche
Bronze (7.8): Kenzo RYOKO fragrance pebble in Flower by Kenzo

And now, I ceremoniously pass the torch to Amber.

    Wait… Since when is Fix+ a hair removal product?

    Fix+ isn’t a hair removal product…sorry for any confusion. I included it in that category because I like to mist on Fix+ after waxing. It soothes the irritated skin and lessens the redness.

    So cute!
    I love many of these products, most notably, PeddEgg (die!) and L’Oreal skin genesis!
