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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

bath and body works coconut water chill shower gel Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn’t break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was looking for. I told her I was looking for something coconutty and she recommended their new Cool Coconut Surf Shower Gel. Typically, a bottle would set you back $12.50, but since it’s new, it was only $6. It smelled good and I almost bought it…that is, until I found a bottle of Coconut Water Chill Shower Gel in the clearance bin marked down to $2.75. I liked the scent a little better and the price couldn’t be beat. CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s

laura mercier cosmetics makeup Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must Haves in Your 30s
Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. 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 that we are in our 30s, I thought it was a great time to learn more about skincare (ugh, the dreaded lines and wrinkles) and how to apply make up that works for us now.
.
I instantly thought of my friend, Claire Sloss, who works for Laura Mercier at Nordstrom in the King of Prussia Mall.  They offer a Master Makeup Class, free of charge. There is a maximum of 15 people – we found that 12 was a great number, as there are Laura Mercier artists working with a couple of girls at one time to see what best works for them. Claire just requires a few weeks to plan the logistics – and offered with the class are refreshments and the products that you would like to purchase. The class is done in a private room so you can spread out, ask a lot of questions and have fun!
.
We had a fabulous time! Luis Soto was our lead artist that evening, and he selected me to be his model!  I admit, I was awe-struck because he has worked with many celebrities including Cher, Cindy Lauper, and N’Sync!  “What, you touched Justin Timberlake’s face?!?”  Yeah, the 15-year-old in me came out!!!

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry

Posted on by daneen in Dry Skin, Exfoliation, Face, Featured, Holy Grail, Skin Care | Leave a comment

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. CONTINUE READING

I’m a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino and Pulp Fiction is one of my top 3 movies of all time (the others being The Sound of Music and The Godfather, Part II). Urban Decay is one of my top 3 beauty brands so I just about lost my mind when I heard about their limited-edition Pulp Fiction collection, which is available now.

urban decay pulp fiction Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collection

Like me, the folks at Urban Decay are diehard Pulp Fiction fans. So to mark the twentieth anniversary of the release of the film, they decided to commemorate the occasion the UD way—with an ultra limited-edition collaboration. Their inspiration is none other than the cool (and completely badass) Mrs. Mia Wallace.*

This collection has everything you need to recreate Mia’s dark, edgy look from the film, including a 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil, Eyeshadow Palette, Revolution Lipstick, Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner and Nail Color.  CONTINUE READING

Turn Your Shower Into a Spa with Essio

Posted on by daneen in Bath and Body, Featured, Fragrance | Leave a comment

essio aromatherapy shower kit 2 Turn Your Shower Into a Spa with EssioWhat if I told you that you could turn your shower into a spa-like experience in less than 3 minutes? Well, you can with the ingenious Aromatherapy Shower Kit from Essio. The kit includes a shower head attachment device and three pods of essential oils. Here’s how it works

You clip the attachment device on the shower head. It’s adjustable and works with lots of different kinds of shower heads. Next, you insert one of the essential oil pods into the end of the attachment device. Finally, you remove the pod’s cap and point the nozzle into the running shower water to start the flow of oil – which will start to fill your shower with fragrance.

The flow of oil can be adjusted to your liking. Point the pod nozzle directly in the stream of water for a bold sensory experience. If you prefer more subtle fragrance, angle the nozzle back a bit. This will also help you conserve oil so that you can get more showers out of each pod. CONTINUE READING
