Baby Your Baby With Noodle & Boo

noodle and boo baby products1 1024x616 Baby Your Baby With Noodle & BooWhen it comes to cosmetics and toiletries, I am difficult to please. I’m even more discriminating with products I use on my kids, 4-year-old Westley and 3-month-old Arwen. So when I rave about children’s products on this blog, there’s no doubt that they are the crème de la crème.

Last month, Noodle & Boo sent me their Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash and Baby Balm to review.

From Arwen’s first bath with these products, I’ve been hooked. Addicted!  (more…)

POPSUGAR Must Have Box POPSUGAR Must Have BoxOne of my all-time favorite things is opening my front door to find a package waiting for me on my doorstep.

Viva Verbena: Laura Mercier Verbena Infusion Gel Body Moisture

Laura Mercier Verbena Infusion Gel Body Moisture Viva Verbena: Laura Mercier Verbena Infusion Gel Body Moisture

If you haven’t yet tried any of Laura Mercier’s bath and body collections, go to your closest Laura Mercier counter immediately! You will not be disappointed and every penny spent will be worth it. For a couple of weeks, I have been using the new Verbena Infusion Gel Body Moisture. I admit it – at first, I was skeptical of the “gel” in the name, and I couldn’t stop thinking about that sticky feeling you feel from using aloe – but I couldn’t have been more wrong about that. It’s part gel and part cream, so it actually feels much lighter than a cream – which is perfect for the heat of the summer. It glides on with ease and quickly absorbs into your skin. The result is extremely soft skin for hours – seriously, I love a great moisturizer that doesn’t require constant reapplication. (more…)

Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!

dermadoctor gorilla warfare hair minimizing antiperspirant Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I’ve got stubble. And forget about skipping days…unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I go through a lot of razors) – it’s also tedious and annoying. There are many days that I make certain clothing choices so I don’t have to go through the trouble of shaving.

So when I heard that one of my favorite skincare brands, DERMAdoctor, has a hair-minimizing antiperspirant, I emailed them with a quickness to ask for a sample I could review for Spoiled Pretty.

Here’s how DERMAdoctor describes Gorilla Warfare:

No need to go ape over jungle-like hair growth and rain forest-level wetness. Stop monkeying around with the ordinary and make peace with two decidedly indelicate concerns with a solution uniquely camouflaged as a daily antiperspirant. It contains fourteen highly evolved botanicals that help turn underarm hair into an endangered species. (more…)

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

bath and body works coconut water chill shower gel Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn’t break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was looking for. I told her I was looking for something coconutty and she recommended their new Cool Coconut Surf Shower Gel. Typically, a bottle would set you back $12.50, but since it’s new, it was only $6. It smelled good and I almost bought it…that is, until I found a bottle of Coconut Water Chill Shower Gel in the clearance bin marked down to $2.75. I liked the scent a little better and the price couldn’t be beat. (more…)

L’Occitane Vitoria Regia: Botanical Beauty From Brazil

LOCCITANE VITÓRIA RÉGIA HAND CREAM LOccitane Vitoria Regia: Botanical Beauty From BrazilL’Occitane does a lot right when it comes to making their products – one of my most favorite things about the company is their ability to get the true fragrances of flowers.I had the pleasure of trying Vitoria Regia Hand Cream (above) from the Brazil Collection, and it’s amazing!  The cream is not too thick and it doesn’t leave that sometimes sticky feeling that other lotions have.  As I was applying it I could smell notes of flowers (the Vitoria Regia flower blooms in the rainforest), greens and even powder.  Which is one of my favorite combinations.  It lasted through my work day and through some of my evening workout.  I also love the size of the tube because it easily fits in my makeup bag.

Why Lush is Luscious

lush cosmetics store Why Lush is Luscious

Hello Spoiled Pretty readers.  I am thrilled to be a contributing writer for SP!  I’ve been looking for a hobby and thought “why don’t I funnel my interests to one place?”  I hope that you enjoy my suggestions as we go through the journey of my new hobby together.

First and foremost – I absolutely LOVE Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics products.  My first experience in one of their stores dates back 5ish years.  My mother, sister and I were on our way home from a Yankees game (a tradition of ours), and we had some time to kill before getting to our train.  We were on 14th Street walking away from Union Square when an adorable young man coaxed us into the shop promising us free facials and hand treatments.  The scent that was pouring out of the door and into the New York City air was intoxicating.  It was sweet and delicious – so we decided to indulge ourselves… (more…)

10 Beauty Products to Get You Through the Flu

Sick woman on couch 10 Beauty Products to Get You Through the Flu

Hey Guys! As you all know the weather lately has been terrible and most of us have been getting all kinds of horrible colds and the flu, as a result. This is very personal for me because I work in retail and it seems like I get one disease after the other with all of my customers constantly sneezing and coughing on me while I do their makeup. So in an effort to expedite my wellness, I came up with a top ten must-haves to get better faster. Jess tested and Jess approved. LOL. Anyway, here you go in no particular order:

fresh sake bath soak 10 Beauty Products to Get You Through the Flu#1. Fresh Sake Bath Soak -  Sake Bath is a purifying soak comprised of over 50% detoxifying sake that works to ease body tension and promote relaxation while leaving the skin incredibly soft, smooth, and moisturized. The delicately foaming formula was inspired by ancient beauty rituals of Japanese Geisha who were known to use sake to purify and soften their skin, and its luxurious lush scent comes from their tradition of infusing baths with real persimmons. On a personal note, I can literally feel the ick leaving my body when I soak in this. It’s a must have.
