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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Shobha Giveaway!!!

shobha+logo Shobha Giveaway!!!Spending summers with her grandmother in the city of Hyderabad, Shobha Tummala learned the secrets of Indian beauty, including ancient methods used for hair removal. “My grandmother made all my beauty products herself,” says Tummala. “Hair conditioner was created from crushed hibiscus petals picked from a tree in our backyard; soap from a mixture of shaved sandalwood and lentils. Moisturizer was just the cream from fresh milk.”

shobha sevices woman Shobha Giveaway!!!After graduating from Harvard Business School and working at a variety of businesses, Tummala founded three luxury New York City salons. The menu of services includes facials, threading, sugaring, waxing and henna.

The Shobha product line is a natural, pun intended, extension of the salons – putting a modern spin on India’s centuries-old beauty and well-being philosophies.

This week, Spoiled Pretty has partnered with Shobha for a giveaway! Three lucky winners will receive:

My+First+Brazilian Shobha Giveaway!!!
* My First Brazilian Kit: This three-step kit provides Shobha essentials for maintaining the bikini area after hair removal, to ensure optimal upkeep for all those who bikini wax. Includes hydrocortisone cream, Exfoliating Cloth, and Freshening Cloths.

ingrown+relief+lotion Shobha Giveaway!!!
* Ingrown Relief Lotion: Shobha’s newest product is a one-step solution for hair removal aftercare that treats and prevents ingrowns without being harsh or drying. The fast-absorbing lotion is free of parabens, color, and artificial fragrance. Glycolic acid exfoliates by removing dead skin, which can clog hair follicles and re-direct hair growth inward; Vitamin A improves skin tone and texture; Tea Tree Oil protects by naturally fighting off irritation; Glycerin keeps skin soft and hydrated; and Chamomile soothes and eliminates the tell-tale signs of post-hair removal sensitivity.

pedegg PedEgg Winners!!!
The time has come to announce the winners of the PedEgg giveaway. I wish I had more than three to give away…heaven knows, many of you need it. I received a good amount of emails from readers – many of you admitting to having some seriously effed-up feet. And some of you confessed to some crazy exfoliation methods. A handful were hilarious…and some were downright frightening. [Shivers]

Anyway, congrats to our three winners: Sonya Carter, Erin Ciminelli, and Laura Preece. These ladies have won a PedEgg, and the baby-soft, smooth feet that come along with it!

Thanks to PedEgg for making this giveaway possible. And thank you to everyone who entered. If you didn’t win but are still dying to try the PedEgg, go get yourself one at pedegg.com. Right now, buy two for only $10 (not including shipping & handling).

And be sure to stay tuned for the next Spoiled Pretty giveaway!

An Egg-Cellent Contest: PedEgg Giveaway!

pedegg An Egg Cellent Contest: PedEgg Giveaway!
If you own a TV and haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve likely seen an infomercial for the PedEgg, an egg-shaped foot file that gives you the perfect pedicure. I’m a sucker for a good infomercial, especially ones hocking beauty-related gadgets. So when I saw the PedEgg in action, I had to get me one so that I could report back to you.

Now that I’ve tried it, I can safely say that the PedEgg goes on a short list of as-seen-on-TV products that deliver on claims (also on that list is the Ronco Rotisserie – just ask Mama Spoiled Pretty).

PedEgg is the essential summer beauty product because it quickly removes calluses and dead skin so you can proudly bare your soles in flip flops and strappy sandals. The egg shape is ergonomically designed to fit perfectly into the palm of your hand for easy and convenient use. And best of all, PedEgg is designed to collect all the skin “shavings” in a convenient storage compartment allowing you to use it anywhere with no mess. Even if your tootsies aren’t tore-up, you’d be amazed at the amount of “shavings” collected in the compartment after you use it. It’s fascinating and oddly satisfying.. I’m so impressed by this product that I thought it would make for a grate giveaway. Grate…get it? Anyway…

This week, three lucky winners will win a PedEgg of their very own.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “PedEgg Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, August 3rd. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, August 4th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Good luck!
