If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

Kenzo Belle de Jour Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Moisturizer, Skin Care | 7 Comments

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.

For the second year in a row, online retailers drugstore.com and Beauty.com participated in Village at the Yard, the must-attended gifting lounge to see and be seen at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Drugstore.com created an “Uncommon Giving Lounge” stocked with Sundance Film Festival essentials like cold medicine, pain relievers, lip balms and hand and face lotion, while partner site Beauty.com offered prestige makeup and skincare products. Whether celebrities forgot to pack something for their trip or didn’t think about everything they would actually need once they got to Sundance – A-listers including Susan Sarandon, Jill Hennessey, Lisa Kudrow, Emmy Rossum, Brittany Snow and Emma Roberts flocked to Uncommon Giving Lounge to pick up items such as Advil, Airborne, Mission lip balm, Stila bronzer, Anastasia brow kits and special Beauty.com designer collaboration bags from Shoshanna and Lela Rose.

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.

This week at Spoiled Pretty, I’m joining forces with drugstore.com and Beauty.com for an Uncommon Giveaway. Five readers will get the celebrity treatment and will win Beauty.com/drugstore.com pharmacy bags, just like the ones gifted to the stars!

Oh Joy: China Glaze Romantique Giveaway!!!

romantique Oh Joy: China Glaze Romantique Giveaway!!!Just in time for Valentine’s Day…

Love is in full bloom! Embark on a love affair this spring with China Glaze Romantique, a stunning new collection of love-inspired shades. Featuring twelve, chrome finished hues, the Romantique collection brings you love in color with sweet nail lacquers in an assortment of harmonious shades for spring. The Romantique collection includes:

china+glaze+romantique+cools Oh Joy: China Glaze Romantique Giveaway!!!
The Cools:
Admire – Lilac Shimmer
Adore – Turquoise Pearl
Awaken – Platinum Silver
Cherish – Shimmering Sea Green
Devotion – Metallic Lavender
Harmony – Brilliant Violet

Emotion – Berry Pink
Delight – Bubblegum Pink
Joy – Mauve Shimmer
Magical – Metallic Bronze
Passion – Gilded Gold
Poetic – Coral with Gold Flecks

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s so refreshing that China Glaze decided against the clichéd Valentine’s Day color palette. If I see one more brand pushing red and pink foil hearts floating in a bottle of clear lacquer, I’m going to scream.

As the name implies, these shades are romantic and whimsical, but the chrometastic finish gives them edge. The formula is pigment-rich, so you really only need one coat; however, metallics tend to highlight every ridge in the nail, so you would be smart to buff and/or apply a base coat, pre-polish.

My current faves are Magical and Joy. Speaking of Joy, I’d better keep this one away from Mama Spoiled Pretty (also named Joy) before she starts begging. Mom loves a purple polish, and she somehow manages to relieve me of almost every plum, grape and eggplanty shade that comes into my possession. But she did “bring me into this world” and “never let me want for anything” – so I suppose I could share.

While we’re on the topic of sharing…I’m pleased to announce that this week, Spoiled Pretty is teaming up with China Glaze for a romantical giveaway. Two sets of Romantique are up for grabs!!!

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, February 1st. Two winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, February 2nd, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. residents only.

Good luck!
