Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Feel Nice, Give Twice

Posted on by daneen in Body Wash, Bubble Bath, Eco-friendly, Lotion | Leave a comment

This holiday season, Cake Beauty wants to stir things up and make gift giving something to truly feel good about. Give Twice, their limited edition holiday collection, will warm your heart and keep our earth cool. They teamed with the nonprofit organization, Zerofootprint, to calculate and offset all carbon dioxide emissions generated during the manufacturing and shipping of the Give Twice collection. Donations will be given to a certified reforestation project.

 Feel Nice, Give TwiceFeel good about giving…give once to a friend, or to yourself and a second time to our world with Cake Beauty’s limited edition Mint Cashmere Cream Collection. The Mint Cashmere Cream Glistening Bath & Shower Froth envelops your skin in hydrating suds that leave behind a delectable, Peppermint Pattie-esque fragrance. The Mint Cashmere Cream Glistening Supreme Body Mousse nourishes with coconut oil, macadamia nut oil, and mango butter. Both are kissed with a shimmer of light-reflecting mica that make skin appear smooth and even…perfect for those festive holiday get-togethers!

After using it, I felt minty fresh – and my husband said I smelled “yummy.” Does it get any better than that?

The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly

The Good – Bliss Snow Wonder Body Butter
snowwonder1 The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly
Y’all already know that I have much love for Bliss Body Butter, a hand and body moisturizer that “instantly drenches dry skin to leave even the scaliest sort feeling seriously soft.” Just in time for the holidays, Bliss has introduced Snow Wonder Body Butter – a limited edition scent. Infused with the an avalanche of antioxidant arctic berry, vitamins A and E, Snow Wonder’s crisp scent recalls the “fresh fragrance of just-fallen flakes.” This winter, soften and smooth skin with a subtle shimmer…you’ll get a flurry of compliments, trust me!

The Bad – Bliss Clog-Dissolving Cleansing Milk
clogmilk The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly
On their website, Bliss promises that the Clog-Dissolving Cleansing Milk “does exactly what it promises. So whether your face suffers from the typical t-zone traffic jam or is oily all over, this marvel of a milky wash will keep it ‘in the clear’. A must-try.”

Don’t ya just hate empty promises? The gentle, low foaming texture of the cleanser was nice…and the citrusy scent was pleasant. But when it came to the clog-dissolving part, I saw nothing of the sort…the condition of my complexion is no better and no worse than before I began using this product. It does cleanse nicely, but for $28, I expect it to do more than merely remove my makeup.

The Bubbly – Bliss Snow Suit Gift Set
snowwonder2 The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly
For less than $30, you can purchase the Snow Suit Gift Set – which includes travel sizes of the Bliss Snow Wonder Body Butter and the Snow Wonder Bath+Shower Gel (this foamy body wash evokes a clean, crisp, winter day – without the ‘brrrrr’ factor!). Makes the perfect gift for a friend, loved one, or yourself!
