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.
Make a commitment to the health of your skin by taking the pledge and Eucerin will send you a free sample of Eucerin Daily Replenishing Lotion!
By pledging to put the health of your skin first every day, we make skincare a priority for our family, friends and ourselves. And when our skin is healthy, we feel confident, and it shows.

You know that…
OMFG, I can’t live without it!
How did I ever survive before this?
This is the answer to my prayers!
Was someone reading my mind?
Why didn’t I think of this?
Where do I get more?
…feeling you got the first time you tried Moroccanoil? Well, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you need to go read this post and then get yourself a bottle. But if you’re familiar with the miracle elixir that is Moroccanoil, you’re going to love my latest discoveries.
So a few weeks ago, a surprise package from the Moroccanoil geniuses showed up on my doorstep. Waiting for me inside was their new bath and body collection, which includes Body Buff, Intense Hydrating Treatment, Hand Cream, Cleansing Bar and Body Souffle.
I must admit, even though I’ve been a Moroccanoil nut since 2008 (I own almost every single hair product), it never occurred to me that they would or should venture into body care. Their products are so amazing and transformative for hair that I figured they’d just concentrate on that. But if they limited themselves to my myopic thinking, the world would be missing out on some seriously Holy Grail body products. (more…)
