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


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

Kenzo Belle de Jour Giveaway!

kenzo+belle+de+jour Kenzo Belle de Jour Giveaway!
Listen up, ladies. There’s a new moisturizer in town – and I am so enamored, I just cannot keep it on the DL.

KENZO’s new face cream, Belle de Jour enhances the skin’s natural beauty by protecting it from free radicals and the harmful stress hormone – Cortisol. High levels of Cortisol increase blood pressure and can weaken the immune system, making the body prone to illness and fat accumulation.

In clinical studies conducted by LVMH CEC (Cosmetic Evaluation Center), 75% of women using Belle de Jour showed a drop in their Cortisol levels by 25% after a single application. Further tests show a 28% reduction in reactive oxygenated elements (free radicals) on the skin’s surface.

White lotus, long regarded as a sacred flower in Asia, is at the heart of its secret formula. White lotus water, grown and harvested specially for KENZO in East Asia, has proven relaxing and anti-free radical effects. This natural and potent ingredient helps restore skin to its natural balance by stimulating cellular metabolism, leaving it luminous and soft. It is suitable for all skin types and may be used day and night.

belle+de+jour Kenzo Belle de Jour Giveaway!Belle de Jour is quite possibly the most luxurious face cream I’ve ever used. In addition to reducing Cortisol levels and protecting against free radicals, this voluptuous moisturizer soothes and increases radiance. While Belle de Jour is one heck of a hydrator, the fragrance is the selling point. Without hesitation, I would say that Belle de Jour is one of the best smelling beauty products I’ve ever met; and as you know, I get around.

When I apply Belle de Jour in the middle of my harried morning routine, it calms me and makes me slow my pace just a little. And I love slathering it on right before bed, so that I can breathe in its delicate perfume as it lulls me to sleep. If KENZO wants to make a gazillion dollars, they’ll create an entire line of skincare, bodycare and fragrance with this exact bouquet. I would buy every single thing. You hear me, KENZO?

One lucky reader is going to hear me loud and clear, because Spoiled Pretty and KENZO are giving away one 1.7 oz jar of Belle de Jour (retail value $105!).

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Belle de Jour Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Saturday, February 7th. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Sunday, February 8th, I’ll announce the winner’s name. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

The Beatles speak the truth. But while love may be all you need, who wouldn’t want this chic Love Enamel Bracelet by Cynthia Holvey?

cynthia+h All You Need Is Love Enamel Bracelet GiveawaySouthern California designer Cynthia Holvey (and cousin of George Clooney) created a line of trend-setting, inspirational bracelets inscribed with empowering affirmations. The collection – including enamel bangles, leather and metal bracelets, and an eco-friendly organic cotton bracelet – have become popular with celebrities such as Christina Applegate, Kristen Bell, Kristin Chenoweth, Jennifer Garner, Kourtney Kardashian, Olivia Wilde, and Michelle Trachtenberg.

“I designed the line to have an edge but be classic enough to go with any outfit. More importantly, the jewelry is meant to inspire, motivate and empower people. I never leave the house without a bracelet and when I look down at my wrist I have a better day,” says Holvey.

Celebrities and other VIP guests also had the opportunity to shop the sites on the spot to order items they want to be waiting on their doorstops when they get back home. And, in the spirit of giving, drugstore.com also donated some much needed essentials – including humidifiers, sun care and first aid supplies – to the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps, the world’s largest family of camps for children with serious medical conditions.
