Spoiled Pretty Philadelphia Style Magazine Philadelphia Style Magazine Shares My Fall Beauty Faves

A few weeks ago, Philadelphia Style Magazine interviewed me for a feature on their website. Since I’m a beauty junkie and can’t resist the opportunity to dish on my favorite products, the story evolved into “Daneen Baird of Spoiled Pretty’s 6 Fall Beauty Picks.” As a Philly gal (born and raised) and a big fan of the magazine (I made the print edition back in 2008 – less than a year after launching this blog), it was awesome to come full circle and to be profiled again. Here’s how they introduced me…

Beauty blogger extraordinaire and Philadelphia resident Daneen Baird knows a thing or two about putting your best face forward. At the helm of the award-winning website, Spoiled Pretty, Baird is constantly ahead-of-the-trend and in-the-know when it comes to the latest and greatest in beauty products and cosmetics. From nail polish reviews to insider tricks of the trade, Baird dishes it all with a bit of sass.

Exfolimate Exfoliate with Exfolimate

As a beauty blogger, I’ve seen and tried a plethora of products and tools – and I’m not easily impressed. It takes a very special product – something that’s truly innovative and effective – to knock my socks off. Exfolimate, the latest addition to my “holy grail” list, did just that. Here’s the product description:

Say G’day to ultra smooth skin and goodbye to dull, flakey skin. Introducing Exfolimate – the ultimate tool to give you younger, fresher looking and feeling skin. Designed in Australia – Exfolimate is your handy mate to instant exfoliation and pore clarification without the fuss of scrubs and loofahs that only rub the surface of your skin without actually removing the problem.

The secret is Exfolimate’s innovative micro-groove technology etched into the smooth metal edge. The micro-grooves gently lift and remove lingering skin cells and debris to unveil younger, fresher skin. Exfolimate is made to gently exfoliate the face and body and is precision designed for daily exfoliation and naturally skin clearing results. Exfolimate transforms the surface of your skin.

I was going to write about Exfolimate, but it was so amazing that a traditional review wouldn’t suffice. So I taped a video about it. Like to hear it? Here it go….

 


Exfolimate is $37 for two-piece face and body tool set. Go get you one today (you can thank me later).

St. Ives Apricot Scrub Gets Much Love From Me

st. ives apricot scrub 1024x587 St. Ives Apricot Scrub Gets Much Love From Me

I can’t believe how late I am to the St. Ives Apricot Scrub partay.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub is a perennial award winner (it’s like the Meryl Streep of the skin care world) and beauty gurus rave about it. I recently tried it for the first time and after I marveled at my baby butt smooth face, I immediately started kicking myself for waiting so long to give it a try.

The scrub exfoliates dull skin away for a smooth and radiant look. The 100 percent natural exfoliants (which include apricots and walnuts) are known to brighten skin; corn kernel meal, which is known to improve skin’s appearance, increases cell turnover. The classic scrub was also newly formulated to be 100 percent sulfate-free.

And now it comes in four formulas, so you can choose the one that meets your skin’s unique needs. CONTINUE READING

Dermalogica Daily Clean Scrub

dermalogica+daily+clean+scrub Dermalogica Daily Clean Scrub

Anyone who knows me knows that I love me some Dermalogica. My problem skin has never responded to skincare products the way it does to Dermalogica. Even though I test a lot of products, I always keep Dermalogica products in the rotation because, otherwise, my skin up and stages a mutiny. I recommend Dermalogica to my friends, family and co-workers so much, you’d think I was making a commission. So when my husband, Mr. Spoiled Pretty, was running low on his face scrub, I took the opportunity to introduce him to one of my favorite brands.

The following is his (first) Spoiled Pretty review:

“I’m not a fancy boy/fancy pants. I don’t use many grooming products. Shaving cream, soap and after shave are basically it. But I am a true believer in face scrubs. I think Chanel has awesome face scrubs and Nivea is pretty much the stand-by, but Dermalogica’s Daily Clean Scrub is one of the best I’ve used. It’s great for when you haven’t used a face scrub in months…you’ll feel like a new man, because it’s got a very abrasive, almost sandpaper-ish feel. After you use it, you’ll feel great, clean, and very confident. You’ll feel like a sexy beast…women (i.e., your wife or girlfriend) will SWOON.  I use it every day.”

-Graham Baird
