Turn Your Shower Into a Spa with Essio

essio aromatherapy shower kit 2What if I told you that you could turn your shower into a spa-like experience in less than 3 minutes? Well, you can with the ingenious Aromatherapy Shower Kit from Essio. The kit includes a shower head attachment device and three pods of essential oils. Here’s how it works

You clip the attachment device on the shower head. It’s adjustable and works with lots of different kinds of shower heads. Next, you insert one of the essential oil pods into the end of the attachment device. Finally, you remove the pod’s cap and point the nozzle into the running shower water to start the flow of oil – which will start to fill your shower with fragrance.    (more…)

L’Occitane Vitoria Regia: Botanical Beauty From Brazil

L'OCCITANE VITÓRIA RÉGIA HAND CREAML’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

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

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#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.


tiger balm#2. Tiger Balm – Tiger Balm offers quick relief for nasal discomfort and cold symptoms like blocked noses and nasal congestion. With quick acting ingredients of herbal origin, Tiger Balm is the choice alternative remedy to keep close in chilly weather and cold office environments. Rub it on your chest to relieve congestion, on your temples to relieve a sinus headache and under your nose to open nasal passages and to treat flakey skin around the nose. Brilliant!


Eucerin Redness Relief Night Cream#3. Eucerin Redness Relief Night Cream –  For visibly red skin, it’s a dermatological skincare hydrating formula with natural licochalcone, a skin soothing extract of licorice root. This unique gel-creme soothes and calms dry, uncomfortable skin. Perfect for puffy red flu faces. It has a gentle formula that minimizes the risk of irritation and is completely fragrance-free, oil-free,  non-comedogenic, and dermagologist recommended. (more…)

Tory Burch Launches Fragrance and Beauty Collection

Tory Burch Perfume and Makeup CollectionLast week, Tory Burch added a new fragrance and beauty collection to her stylish empire.

Tory describes her eponymous fragrance as “a balance of femininity and tomboy, citrus and floral, grounded and graceful.” Floral peony and tuberose blend with crisp citrus notes of grapefruit and neroli — anchored by earthy vetiver.

Back in 2009, I interviewed my fellow Philadelphian and she named Vetiver by Guerlain as her signature scent. So I’m not surprised that vetiver (which her dad, Buddy, also wore) became the signature note for her first fragrance. (more…)
