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

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

spoiled pretty green week small John Masters Organics Soap Giveaway!

With the launch of his eponymous product line in the early 90′s, John Masters set the standard for “green” beauty. Now this visionary pioneer raises the bar with the launch of three organic bar soaps exceptional enough to meet his exacting standards.

John Masters Organics Bar Soaps are certified organic by Oregon Tilth and feature a gentle, skin-loving base of certified-organic palm and coconut oils. Each of these luscious bars smells incredible, delivers serious, targeted results and comes wrapped in 100% recycled paper printed with water-based inks.

John Masters Organics new Bar Soaps are available in three super-moisturizing formulas that meet various needs and treat all skin types:

john+masters+organics+soaps John Masters Organics Soap Giveaway!

Lavender, Rose, Geranium & Ylang Ylang Soap: Formulated with organic olive and cupuacu seed butter and organic glycerin, this may very well be the perfect beauty bar. Lavender, rose geranium and ylang ylang essential oils impart a heavenly fragrance while offering skin soothing and balancing benefits, making this soap ideal for both face and body.

Birch & Cedarwood Cleansing & Shaving Bar: This incredible multi-purpose soap is an excellent all-over body cleanser that also functions as a shaving bar for men and women. Enriched with organic olive oil, it lathers to a rich and soothing foam that allows for a close and comfortable shave. Birch and cedarwood oils offer antiseptic properties that help prevent shaving irritation and leave skin clean and conditioned.

Orange & Ginseng Exfoliating Body Bar: This unique body bar contains real organic orange and lime peel that gently and effectively exfoliates while ginseng root stimulates and revitalizes. Exhilarating essential oil of orange blended with an organic palm and coconut oil soap base creates an invigorating lather with high glycerin content. Skin is left clean, soft and smooth.

Each 4.5 oz John Masters Organics Bar Soap ($8) is available at johnmasters.com, Whole Foods Markets and a variety of spas and boutiques nationwide.

Aveda Shampure Soy Wax Candle Giveaway!

 Aveda Shampure Soy Wax Candle Giveaway!
If you’re a regular reader of Spoiled Pretty, you probably remember a review I wrote a few weeks back – extolling the virtues of Aveda’s Shampure Soy Wax Candle.
It might be a stretch to call the Shampure Candle the best-smelling candle of all time – considering, well, I’ve only been on this earth to judge for 31 years. But I’m going to give it that title anyway because I dare someone to find me one more wonderfully fragrant. I triple dog dare you.
This candle smells so good, I want to petition Aveda to create a body wash, lotion, perfume and hand cream in the same scent (they already have a Shampure shampoo and conditioner – which are on my “next to try” list).

The aroma of 25 pure flower and plant essences – including certified organic lavender, petitgrain and ylang ylang – soothes the senses. And the candle, housed in a 95% recycled glass holder, burns cleanly and completely for up to 50 hours.

I’m not content to enjoy this candle solo – so, in honor of Earth Day (April 22) and Natural Woman Week, I’ve teamed up with Aveda to share two with you!
Two winners will receive Aveda’s Shampure Soy Wax Candle – and I dare them to tell my challenge my ‘best-smelling candle of all time’ theory.
