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

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

Go Ahead – Rain On My Parade

rain Go Ahead – Rain On My Parade
Humidity is my hair’s archenemy. Just the slightest bit of moisture in the air results in serious tress distress. As soon as the meteorologist mentions rain in the 5-day forecast, my hair starts misbehaving. So imagine my surprise when yesterday, in the middle of a Philadelphia freezing-rainstorm, I was that girl you love to hate. You know…the girl whose hair always looks divine, rain or shine.

So what’s my hair’s new secret weapon against the evil winter elements? I’ve been using Profound Beauty’s Stylist Linear Serum and Linear Cream.

 Go Ahead – Rain On My ParadeAfter washing and conditioning my hair, I mix equal parts of the serum and cream in my hands and apply to towel-dried hair. The lightweight, silicone-based serum seals and protects the hair cuticle; and the cream, a blend of silicone and emollients, smoothes and softens my mutinous mane. The result is sleek, straight hair that resists humidity and doesn’t weigh hair down. In fact, I was somewhat dumbfounded at how the products managed to simultaneously straighten and add volume to my baby fine locks.

If you really want to push it, and have the girls at work seething with jealousy, finish off your do with Structure Shine – a serum that imparts long-lasting luster while protecting hair from heat styling.

Log on to profoundbeauty.com, click ‘Find Your Routine,’ and follow the online consultation. Once you have completed the questionnaire, Profound Beauty will recommend a personalized assortment of products to take you from “yikes” to “yowza.”

Complicated Name, But Simply Amazing

alfaparf Complicated Name, But Simply AmazingYou’ve probably never heard of this product, but once you use it, you’ll never forget it. Just don’t forget who told you about it…

Semi Di Lino Cristlli Liquidi Illuminating Serum by Alfaparf Milano is an ultra-luxurious beauty fluid that instantly adds more light, shine, and softness to every hair type.

Alfaparf Milano, started in 1980 with the goal of distributing high quality Italian haircare throughout the world, is now sold in 80 countries around the world. Their products are known for “making soft and shiny hair a breeze,” and the Semi Di Lino Cristlli Liquidi Illuminating Serum is a cult favorite among hairstylists and beauty addicts, like me.

Semi Di Lino Cristlli Liquidi Illuminating Serum forms an invisible protection film that temporarily smoothes the hair cuticle and seals split ends, resulting in strands that are soft, shiny, easy to comb, and pleasing to the touch.

The Semi Di Lino line is made specifically for hair that needs shine, and contain linseed extracts to brighten, Vitamin E to protect, and Omega 3 and Omega 6 to reconstruct. The light formula isn’t greasy, won’t weigh down your hair, and brings out the highlights in both natural and colored tresses. It can be used on damp hair before styling, or as a finishing touch on dry hair. And the fragrance is heavenly. The reasons to purchase this product go on and on…

The only downside is that the product is not widely available in stores. Your best bet is to purchase online. Right now, SleekHair.com is offering a 1.69 ounce bottle for $22, which is pretty decent. Spoiled Pretty suggests doing a Google search and finding a reputable seller with the lowest price.
