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

Hanae Mori: Butterfly Eau Fraiche

eau fraiche Hanae Mori: Butterfly Eau Fraiche
My signature scent is Hanae Mori Butterfly. I’ve been wearing it for so long that I can’t quite remember when I was first introduced to the fragrance. Hanae Mori Butterfly even got me in a fight once. A few years back, one of my BFF’s and I had this ridiculous argument over who has been wearing Butterfly the longest. The answer is me, for the record.

Given my obsession, I was so ecstatic to hear that Hanae Mori will soon release a limited edition fragrance for spring and summer 2008: Butterfly Eau Fraiche.

“Eau Fraiche is the first non-linear Hanae Mori women’s fragrance – that is, the first Hanae Mori fragrance that changes on the skin over time,” says Hanae Mori. “The house has traditionally favored fragrances with one, unchanging note. Yet this new limited edition fragrance features a summery top note of grapefruit and tangerine that lifts like a butterfly from the skin and leaves a light, sun-kissed blend of fruits, berries and woods.”

Notes include: tangerine and grapefruit (top); strawberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, bilberries, Bulgarian rose, ylang-ylang, jasmine and peony (middle); and rosewood, almondwood, sandalwood and cedar (base).

Hanae Mori Eau Fraiche will be available in April/May 2008 at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, select Macy’s and Sephora.

Price is $65 for 3.4 fl. oz

Shu Uemura Makes Water?

Posted on by daneen in Featured | 2 Comments

00962BrittnyGasti DeGuire 5578515 Shu Uemura Makes Water?
What is model/socialite/reality TV star Brittny Gastineau’s secret to flawless skin? She swears by Depsea Water. Clearly, shu uemura makes some mean makeup – but water? Who knew?

I did some research…and here’s the Cliff’s Notes version:

su water Shu Uemura Makes Water?shu uemura Depsea Water – aka, “water from the depths of the sea” – resides far below the ocean surface where sunlight does not reach, at 320 meters. Deep-sea water contains more than 60 ocean minerals to boost the natural function of the skin; it also has a high affinity with human skin and can quickly absorb to rapidly refresh and hydrate skin. Compared to surface sea water, deep-sea water has three superior characteristics:

* PURITY without any deterioration from acid rain or industrial draining
* RICHNESS of minerals and nutrient substance
* STABILITY in low temperature

The mineral rich water can be found only in three locations in the world – in the coastal waters off Hawaii, Norway and Japan’s Cape Muroto in Kochi Prefecture. In order to explore the potential of deep-sea water in cosmetics, Mr. Shu Uemura founded the Muroto Factory Museum in Kochi Prefecture in 1989, and shu uemura cosmetics became the first company in the world to incorporate deep-sea water into cosmetic products.

Depsea Water is completely free of artificial color, but natural aromatic extracts are added to become lightly scented mists that rejuvenate and hydrate the skin, hair and body. It can be used anytime to revive spirits and provide hydration. Available in 11 scents.
