Beauty Products to Keep Eczema at Bay

IMG 1082 Beauty Products to Keep Eczema at BayI 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…)

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream Review

Daneen – I know that you like your razor*, but wow, this stuff is awesome!

Do you remember where you were when you learned how to shave? Believe it or not, I was in Tennessee! My Dad was driving our family to Orlando, from New Jersey, for a trip to Disney world. He had the tendency to take the long way to stop at obscure places for sight seeing. I was 10 or 12 years old, and I recall my mom saying that it was time to learn. She took a disposable razor and his Barbasol shave cream and showed me what to do.

Since then, I always got the $1.00 Barbasol shave cream to use. But since it always left me feeling dry (and smelling like a man, ha!), I decided to splurge and get Skintimate – which was definitely better. I never thought I would use anything more “luxurious” than that until Whish Shave Crave found its way to my shower.

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…)

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…)
