Need shopping suggestions? If you have uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation, Tatcha Deep Brightening Serum is one of best products on the market. I just purchased a bottle last week and though it’s pricey, it’s soooo worth it. I also love the Rice Enzyme Powder – it’s a powerful yet gentle exfoliant that leaves my skin as soft and smooth as my 2 year old’s. Honestly, Tatcha products are so effective and pampering that you really can’t go wrong.

Holiday Gift Guide 2015: Give the Gift of Gorgeous Skin With First Aid Beauty

First Aid Beauty Peace Joy & Fab KitThis holiday season, give the gift of clear, smooth, radiant skin.

I was not acquainted with First Aid Beauty until I was sent their limited-edition Peace, Joy & Fab Kit (pictured above) to review. But after testing these skincare products for the past two weeks, I’m not quite sure how I lived without them. And I can’t be the only one who has recently become enlightened because this particular gift set is completely sold out at Sephora.com (check your local store to see if it’s still in stock…you may get lucky).   (more…)

Tatcha, I’m So Glad I Gotcha

tatcha ad

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 me to change the station.

Anyway, a few weeks ago, I caught a demonstration from a beauty brand I’d never heard of: Tatcha. Victoria Tsai, the brand’s creator, was talking about the inspiration behind the brand (ancient Geisha skincare traditions) and demonstrating some skincare products – and she had my undivided attention. And I’m not easily impressed. I was this close to ordering, but I’m sleep-deprived and ended up passing out before I got a chance to order. The next week, I was so preoccupied that I forgot about Tatcha – until they sent me an email. They offered to send me some products to sample. And after using them for the past few weeks, I am ADDICTED. No…seriously. I now have a legitimate Tatcha habit.  (more…)

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry

Dermadoctor Physical ChemistryOne of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin – those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I’ve been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There’s really no body exfoliator that comes close to KP Duty. 

Anyway, KP Duty’s skincare counterpart is Physical Chemistry – Dermadoctor’s exfoliating facial. Again, it combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion into a simple-to-use, powerfully effective yet gentle scrub. You simply apply it to dry skin, rub it in with your fingertips, rinse and pat dry. That’s it.

I tried it for the first time this week and I literally asked myself why it’s taken me so long to get acquainted with this product. (more…)
