My daughter, Arwen, is a Noodle & Boo baby. Seen here – with a hair brush in each hand – she is a true beauty girl in training.
Noodle & Boo, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
Noodle & Boo Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash gently cleanses Arwen’s hair and skin without stripping its natural moisture. It’s tear-free, clinically-tested for sensitive/newborn skin, mild enough for daily use and suds up well despite being sulfate-free.
Noodle & Boo Baby Balm is a nourishing cream for face and body that soothes, pampers and provides long-lasting moisture for dry, irritated skin.
My latest Noodle & Boo discovery is their Conditioning Hair Polish, which uses sunflower seed and green tea extracts to detangle and smooth, reduce frizz and protect against environmental stress. (more…)
Whish, one of my favorite bath and body brands, sent me these mini tubes of their new Soda Fountain Collection to try. And let me tell you – these body butters (which I’ve been using as hand lotion) smell so yummy, I’ve unconsciously morphed into Mary Katherine Gallagher. As I type this, I’ve probably stopped two or three times to sniff my hands.
The collection features vintage soda fountain flavors (Black Cherry, Ginger Melon, Key Lime and Orange Cream) and is available in the form of Whish’s bubbly Bath & Body Gel and super-hydrating Body Butter.
The entire collection is available for purchase on the Whish website, but a limited selection of super-sized bottles is available as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives. (more…)
After an excruciatingly long winter, I cannot wait for the mercury to start rising. Sunning myself on a beach while sipping a pina colada is my daydream du jour, but unlikely of coming true anytime soon. So until then, I’ve been taking imaginary tropical timeouts courtesy of my hand soap.
Yes to Coconut Lemongrass Liquid Hand Soap smells heavenly, lathers richly, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth – and clean, obviously! And you can also feel good about choosing this soap because it’s 97% natural, petroleum, SLS, & paraben free, cruelty-free and free of artificial color. (more…)
I have eczema. Not all year round. Just December through March. Sometimes, it’s just a minor annoyance. Other days, I’m covered with dry patches and the itchiness is almost too much to endure.
For the past few years, I’ve been eczema-free. So I thought that maybe I’d kicked the condition…that is, until it returned with a vengeance last month.No joke – in less than a week, two tiny bumps on my upper arm morphed into a scaly, raw, inflamed rash that covered the right side of my torso, hip and upper thigh. And there’s no cure. Can you believe that BS? We can land a space probe on a moving comet, but can’t figure out a way to prevent me from scratching my own skin off? Anyway, I digress… (more…)
