The Body Shop Fragrance Giveaway

the+body+shop+love+etc+gift+set The Body Shop Fragrance GiveawayEarlier this week, The Body Shop introduced its newest fragrance, Love Etc…

Created by one of the world’s finest ‘noses’ Dominique Ropion, the perfume features a sensuous union of iconic feminine jasmine, with indulgent notes of vanilla, sandalwood and musk cream.

With over 25 years of experience, Ropion’s genius has been the mastermind behind some of the world’s most loved and enduring scents, including Armani Code, Lovely, and Amarige.

“Love Etc… sounds like a chorus, it smells like a captivating fragrance and it means
people connecting in a world in movement. It suggests force, happiness, pleasure and life,”
said Ropion. “One of the great pleasures for me is knowing that this fragrance features an alcohol
base which is sourced through the unique Community Trade program from The Body Shop.
This is definitely another route by which the whole concept of universal love comes alive with
this unique fragrance.”

This week, Spoiled Pretty and The Body Shop are partnering to spread the Love Etc…

Bath & Body Works Triple Moisture Shower Cream and Body Cream

bath+and+body+works+triple+moisture+shower+and+body+cream Bath & Body Works Triple Moisture Shower Cream and Body CreamAs I reported a few weeks back, Bath & Body Works recently reformulated their Shower Cream and Body Cream, with a triple moisture complex moisturizes skin all day and also shows visible improvement in skin’s radiance and feel. This week, the new stock makes its way to real and virtual shelves.

The new Triple Moisture Shower Cream is the ultimate luxuriously hydrating body cleanser. With rich, creamy moisture and a gentle kiss of fragrance, this pampering treatment works hard to nourish skin while you shower. With natural soybean oil, milk proteins, rice bran oil and acai berry, it leaves your skin feeling deeply moisturized and soft as silk.

The new Triple Moisture Body Cream is fortified with an exclusive Triple Moisture Complex of conditioning milk proteins, hydrating rice bran oil and protective acai berry extract, our Signature Triple Moisture Body Cream provides deep, 24-hour moisture that softens even the driest skin. And the non-greasy formula deeply conditions, leaving skin moisturized, fragrant, and more beautiful than ever before.

Right now, buy two and get one free…or buy three and get two free! I don’t know about you, but I’m going to take this opportunity to replenish my stock. For dry skin, I really don’t think it gets better than this body wash and lotion (Japanese Cherry Blossom, Butterfly Flower and Moonlight Path are my personal faves).

Bath & Body Works Creamy Body Wash Being Reformulated

bath+and+body+works+japanese+cherry+blossom+creamy+body+wash Bath & Body Works Creamy Body Wash Being ReformulatedYesterday, I visited my local Bath & Body Works store to replenish my Japanese Cherry Blossom Creamy Body Wash stock…and I almost started twitching. Not only was it nowhere to be found, there were no Creamy Body Washes to speak of.

I made a beeline for a helpful saleswoman, who calmed me down and assured me that they would be back on shelves soon.

Totally jonesing for my my beloved body wash and unsatisfied with the vague timeline given for its re-release, I emailed my contact at the company. She informed me that they are being reformulated with a triple moisture complex moisturizes skin all day and also shows visible improvement in skin’s radiance and feel. While the old stock is still available on bathandbodyworks.com, the new batch will hit stores around October 15th.

Thank heavens for small miracles. You’re welcome, fellow Creamy Body Wash fiends.

Best Body Scrub Since Ever!

dermadoctor+kp+duty+scrub Best Body Scrub Since Ever!There really aren’t enough superlatives in the English language to adequately describe how I feel about DERMAdoctor’s KP Duty Body Scrub. It has got to be the best body scrub ever…and I dare someone to prove me wrong. After using it, my skin rivaled my pal Julia‘s; which, if you met her, would convince you to go out an buy KP Duty this very second.

KP Duty is a dual-action chemical and physical exfoliator that blends the best of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion into a single, easy-to-use treatment. Dermatologist-recommended chemical exfoliants dissolve the glue that cements epidermal cells together, while non-abrasive synthetic beads lift away dead skin cells without inflicting trauma to the epidermis. So, in layman’s terms,this product runs circles around that scrub you’ve got sitting on the edge of your tub.

To use, apply a small amount of the scrub to dry skin and gently massage it in with your fingertips. Rinse, pat dry, and marvel at the smoothness. You won’t believe that the skin you’re touching actually belongs to you.

I’m an exfoliating fool, so when I say KP Duty is the best I’ve ever tried and you NEED to try it too, you know this is sage advice. I really can’t say enough wonderful things about this scrub. It’s one of those rare beauty products that comes along once in a blue moon and blows you away. Use it on arms to reveal skin you never knew was underneath there. Use it on legs for the closest shave you’ve ever had. Use it all over to remind your man why he got with you in the first place.

Quite simply, it’s life changing.

DERMAdoctor KP Duty is available at Sephora and dermadoctor.com.

*This product is not intended for use on the face or for those with sensitive skin. But it works wonders for those of you who suffer from dry skin and/or keratosis pilaris (a common skin disorder typified by “chicken skin” or bumpiness on the surface of the skin).

Bloggers Take Manhattan

nyc Bloggers Take Manhattan

Please forgive me, peeps, for I have no time to do what I do.

I’m in NYC for the annual Daily Makeover Beauty Bloggerati conference – and it’s been makeup, skincare and hair 24-7. So please forgive the lack of posts lately. But while I’m on here apologizing, I might as well tell you what I’ve been up to. I’m so tired, I’m about to pass out. But here are some quick highlights…

If you haven’t tasted the crispy fried chicken, basilicious mozzarella sticks or fruit embellished fro-yo dessert at Mad For Chicken (formerly BonChon), you have not lived. Thanks for the tip, Erika.

Daily Makeover’s site is about to get a makeover. Can’t be too specific, but their new content and tools are going to blow your beauty-loving mind.

Had delish lunch at the Estee Lauder offices and finally met all of the PR girls I talk to ten times a day. All of the brands (which include an impressive lineup: MAC, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, La Mer, Tommy Hilfiger, Jo Malone, and more) are very interested in learning more about the Beauty Bloggerati and how they can better work with us.

Our Columbus Circle beauty crawl went a little like this:

kiehls+sunflower+hair+care Bloggers Take Manhattan*Fell a little more in luvre with Kiehl’s. Told everyone within earshot about my obsession with their Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion; I think I converted many of my fellow bloggers into fans. Then we were all introduced to Kiehl’s new Sunflower Oil hair products; the shampoo smells yummy fantastic – like fresh apricot. We also got the skinny on the new Rare Earth line, created for acne-prone and greasy gals like yours truly. They sent me home with samples, so look for reviews soon.

*Lancome is the freaking bomb. We were greeted with champagne, heavenly cupcakes and veritable wonderland of makeup. I had an opportunity to play around with their fall 2009 collection and chat up celebrity makeup artist, Andrew Sotomayor…who has the BEST SKIN EVER. No joke. You could inspect his face with a high powered microscope and not find one pore. And the kind folks at Lancome sent us all home with a bag of goodies, including the Oscillation Powerbooster mascara primer and new Hypnose Drama mascara – which, together, are TO DIE!

*L’Occitane has this amazing anti-aging skincare product, called Divine Cream, that will hit shelves September 16th. I smoothed some on my hand and the texture was truly divine. L’Occitane don’t lie.

*I wish Philadelphia had a Space NK store. Really, every city should have at least one. It smelled so damn good inside and they had some mellow Marvin Gaye on the stereo…I just didn’t want to leave. What I love about Space NK is the diverse range of brand offerings. I consider myself a beauty savant, and there were products and lines that I’ve never heard of. Can you even?

*If there’s a store where I want one of everything, it’s Fresh. I seriously don’t think you can go wrong with anything they sell. My new fave Fresh products are the Brown Sugar Body Scrub and Body Cream. It’s like a 1-2 punch to your flaky epidermis. Exfoliate with the scrub and then moisturize with the cream and you’ll swear that you got bumped to the top of the skin transplant list. The transformation is unbelievable!

Attended the What Not To Wear premiere party at the Ted Gibson Salon, to celebrate Ted’s new gig as the show’s resident hair guru. Briefly chatted up Jason Backe and congratulated him on the oodles of magazines he’s been quoted in these last few months. I love me some Ted and Jason…dolls, the both of them. They deserve all of the success coming their way.

Me, Amber and Marta at Revlon dinner

Dinner with Revlon at Almond was ab fab. The steak frites I ordered was un(freaking)real. Plus, we got up close and personal with some of their newest products. In the middle of my meal, I applied their Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick…and it still looked perfect when I returned to my room at the ACE Hotel 2 hours later.

Okay, losing consciousness now. I’ll check in again as soon as I can. You might have to wait a lil longer than a New York minute…but it will be worth it.

All American: Bath & Body Works American Grown Collection

washing+hands All American: Bath & Body Works American Grown CollectionA few months ago when our hand soap got low, I replaced them with some generic soap I bought at the drugstore. When he saw my purchase, Mr. Spoiled Pretty looked at me like I had two heads.

“What happened to the Bath & Body Works soap we always use? I like that stuff,” he said.

So, the next day, I swung by my local Bath & Body Works store (holler at the Liberty Place location) on my lunch break and picked up two bottles of their Anti-bacterial Gentle Foaming Hand Soap in Japanese Chinese Blossom and Warm Vanilla Sugar.

Now that our stock is almost depleted again and it’s time for me to replenish the soap supply, Bath & Body Works fortuitously debuts a new line that I’m sure will satisfy my spoiled spouse.

bath+and+body+works+montana+sky+hand+soap All American: Bath & Body Works American Grown Collection

American Grown is a collection of hand soaps and body gels inspired by great American destinations. Formulated with invigorating botanicals grown in the U.S., American Grown products condition, rejuvenate and stimulate the skin. Packaged in big, bold and colorful bottles, each hand soap and shower gel transports you to the American locale from which it draws its name.

In honor of my Libby, Montana-born/Spokane, Washington bred husband, I think I’ll add the Montana Sky and Washington Apple hand soaps to my shopping list. Products are also available in Napa Grape (we honeymooned there), Siesta Key Lemon and Savannah Mint scents. American Grown hand soaps retail for $6.60 and shower gels will set you back a mere $12.50.

Graham, you’re so vain…you probably think this blog post is about you.
