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 CONTINUE READING

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 CONTINUE READING

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One 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 CONTINUE READING

QVC All Access Beauty Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Accolades and Honors, Contest, Featured, Giveaway | 131 Comments

When I was a young girl, one of my favorite pastimes was sitting in front of my mom’s mirrored closet doors and “playing QVC.” I would pretend to be Kathy Levine, meticulously describing each necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings in my mother’s jewelry box – using terms like Black Hills Gold, Diamonique and lobster claw clasp.

Twenty-some odd years later, I’m still a fan of QVC. My favorite show is Friday Night Beauty with Lisa Robertson – and if I didn’t have such excellent self-control, that program might bankrupt me. When I watch FNB, I always get the urge to call in and share my thoughts on the products I’ve tried. But I get nervous and I never go through with it.

QVC All Access Beauty Bloggers QVC All Access Beauty Giveaway!So when QVC recently approached me about being one of their featured bloggers for the All Access Beauty event (it kicks off this Friday, April 13 at 11:00 PM EST and will continue on all day Saturday, April 14), I jumped at the opportunity.  As an All Access Beauty Blogger, I’m sharing my top beauty picks on QVC.com. And since I’m local, I’ll be traveling to their West Chester, PA studios on Saturday to go backstage and meet beauty rock stars like Kate Somerville, Mally and Josie Maran. CONTINUE READING

Versace Yellow Diamond Giveaway

Posted on by daneen in Bath and Body, Contest, Featured, Fragrance, Giveaway, Perfume | 31 Comments

versace yellow diamond 1024x665 Versace Yellow Diamond GiveawayI have a very discriminating nose, which is why a lot of fragrance reviews don’t see the light of day on the pages of Spoiled Pretty. I have a few favorites (Hanae Mori Butterfly, Prada Infusion d’Iris, Kai, Philosophy Amazing Grace, L’Instant de Guerlain, Carol’s Daughter Sugar-Dipped Vanilla) – but most perfumes don’t impress me enough to warrant a review.

So the fact that I’m posting about Yellow Diamond should tell you that I’m definitely impressed with Versace’s latest olfactory offering. CONTINUE READING

Lighten Up with Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

Kiehls Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution Lighten Up with Kiehls Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

Hyperpigmentation is the beauty bane of my existence. Every time I get a pimple, it leaves a dark mark in its wake – whether or not I pick at it. Luckily, I don’t get too many blemishes or else Cruella de Ville might want to make a coat out of me. But even one dark mark is a cause for concern and embarrassment – not to mention they can take months to lighten up.

One mark has taken up residence on my jawline for the past six months. It’s been there for so long, sometimes I just forget about it. That is until I see a photo of myself and cringe at how dark and mole-like it appears. So when a bottle of Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution showed up on my doorstep to review, I was very hopeful. Kiehl’s is one of my favorite skincare brands and their products have yet to disappoint, so I was very hopeful about this new innovation. CONTINUE READING
