While I’m prone to eczema during the winter months, the rest of the year I’m luckily flare-up free. But this past summer, my skin was an irritated itchy mess – so I knew something not good was up and I’d be wise to see a dermatologist. The doctor’s orders were short and sweet.
#1) Take warm (not hot) baths and showers.
Okay…I can do that.
#2) Only use fragrance-free body products.
That’s easy too. Um…wait…hold up. What?!?!?
Whish, one of my favorite bath and body brands, sent me these mini tubes of their new Soda Fountain Collection to try. And let me tell you – these body butters (which I’ve been using as hand lotion) smell so yummy, I’ve unconsciously morphed into Mary Katherine Gallagher.

I liked the scent a little better and the price couldn’t be beat. (more…)
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…)
