Since discovering MOR Cosmetics last year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I have been obsessed with their products. So my holiday bath and body gift picks are the products that introduced me to the brand. The MOR ‘Essential Moments – Honey Nectar’ Set ($25) includes a Soap Bar, Body Butter and Hand Cream. The Honey Nectar scent is one of the best fragrances I’ve ever smelled. I’m not a big honey fan, but the scent isn’t so literal; it also features notes of brown sugar, candied almonds and warm vanilla milk.
Carol’s Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio is the gift for that vanilla lover in your life. I, myself, am a vanilla fiend. It’s my absolute favorite fragrance. But I have a discerning nose. Not all confection-scented beauty products are created equal and many are downright amateur and juvenile. Carol’s Daughter, on the other hand, does vanilla justice and offers some of the most elegant and inspired takes on the classic scent.
“Vanilla is one of my favorite notes to work with; it blends so beautifully with almost anything. Vanilla is warm and loving and conjures up happy thoughts, and at the same time it can add a subtle sensuality to a scent. Included in this set are two of our most popular vanilla fragrances from the past few years and an exciting new vanilla.” —Lisa Price, Founder of Carol’s Daughter
Carol’s Daughter Joy of Vanilla Body Indulgence Trio in Joy Box includes:
4 oz. Sugar-Dipped Vanilla Body Cream (notes of water lily, vanilla and cotton candy)
4 oz. Vanilla Petals Body Cream (notes of French marshmallow, soft florals and vanilla)
4 oz. Vanilla Truffle Body Cream (notes of creamy vanilla, white chocolate and turbinado sugar) (more…)

This past Spring, I embarked on the 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge. To kick off this partnership, I had a consultation with Dr. Deborah Sarnoff, a NYC dermatologist. After discussing my skin issues, she recommended the following Eucerin products for me:
After using the products for four months, I had a follow-up consultation with Dr. Sarnoff. Watch the video for a recap of my evaluation and the progress I’ve made, as well as some great tips Dr. Sarnoff gave me for the coming months.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream is a #1 international best-seller from L’Occitane, and one of my personal favorites. Enriched with 20% shea butter, this super-creamy hand balm quickly penetrates to protect, nourish and regenerate dry skin. The scent is light, yet intoxicating. Smooth even the most hard-working hands with a blend of nourishing ingredients including almond oil, honey, coconut oil and antioxidant vitamin E.
Whenever I buy the Shea Butter Hand Cream, I opt for the trio – so I can keep one tube on my vanity, leave the second tube in my desk drawer at work, and stash the third tube in my purse so I’m never without this little luxury.
Why am I telling you all this? Well, because starting October 1st, you can score a tube for free! (more…)
I love beauty. But what I love more is introducing women to beauty products that they never knew existed but will change their lives. That’s why I started Spoiled Pretty, after all.
I’ve been blogging since 2007 and have posted 2,900+ product reviews and articles. I’ve dropped a lot of knowledge over the past five years and I encourage you to search the site and get better acquainted. But for those who are short on time or need to quickly get down to the nitty gritty, I’ve added an exciting feature to Spoiled Pretty.
These ladies will receive a 10 oz. sample of Vaseline Total Moisture Lotion, which boasts a thick formula, hydrates for 24 hours, smells clean, and takes the place of the three or four lotions (or in Jenna’s case, 20) that are likely taking up prime real estate in your medicine cabinet.
I apply Vaseline Total Moisture Clean Feeling Lotion in the morning to quench my Sahara-dry dermis, and my skin stays hydrated and silky smooth all day. I am excited to share this product, as I’m confident the lucky winners will love – and use – it as much as I do.
Thanks to Vaseline for sponsoring this contest! And be sure to stay tuned for more chances to get Spoiled Pretty.

My husband affectionately calls me “Daneen the Clutter Queen.” He’s right: Parting with products absolutely pains me. I keep products I haven’t used for years and will never wear again, and I’m not alone. Do you know that 34% of women admit to having more than 20 products stored in their medicine cabinet, and 27% of women admit to having a product in their medicine cabinet that has been there for more than 3 years?
But, there comes a time in every beauty addict’s life when every bathroom shelf is stocked, every drawer is overflowing, and there’s no room for the new things you’ll inevitably buy. That’s when a cosmetics connoisseur needs to get creative.
I recently discovered a product that will free up space, save you money and get your spouse/partner off your case. (more…)
This past Spring, I embarked on the 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge. To kick off this partnership, I met with dermatologists from the Eucerin Skin First Council to develop my own personal skincare regimen (stay tuned for more progress updates and fabulous giveaways). But in the meantime, I want to encourage you to join me in taking the Eucerin Skin First Pledge:
I pledge to protect and defend my skin as it does me.
I pledge to make skincare a priority for me, my family, and my friends.
I pledge to treat my skincare more like healthcare.
