You’ll Go Nuts Over Yes To Coconut Lemongrass Hand Soap

Yes to Coconut Lemongrass Liquid Hand SoapAfter an excruciatingly long winter, I cannot wait for the mercury to start rising. Sunning myself on a beach while sipping a pina colada is my daydream du jour, but unlikely of coming true anytime soon. So until then, I’ve been taking imaginary tropical timeouts courtesy of my hand soap.

Yes to Coconut Lemongrass Liquid Hand Soap smells heavenly, lathers richly, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth – and clean, obviously! And you can also feel good about choosing this soap because it’s 97% natural, petroleum, SLS, & paraben free, cruelty-free and free of artificial color.  (more…)

L’Occitane Vitoria Regia: Botanical Beauty From Brazil

L'OCCITANE VITÓRIA RÉGIA HAND CREAML’Occitane does a lot right when it comes to making their products – one of my most favorite things about the company is their ability to get the true fragrances of flowers.I had the pleasure of trying Vitoria Regia Hand Cream (above) from the Brazil Collection, and it’s amazing!  The cream is not too thick and it doesn’t leave that sometimes sticky feeling that other lotions have.  As I was applying it I could smell notes of flowers (the Vitoria Regia flower blooms in the rainforest), greens and even powder.  Which is one of my favorite combinations.  It lasted through my work day and through some of my evening workout.  I also love the size of the tube because it easily fits in my makeup bag.

Philadelphia Style Magazine Shares My Fall Beauty Faves

Spoiled Pretty Philadelphia Style Magazine

A few weeks ago, Philadelphia Style Magazine interviewed me for a feature on their website. Since I’m a beauty junkie and can’t resist the opportunity to dish on my favorite products, the story evolved into “Daneen Baird of Spoiled Pretty’s 6 Fall Beauty Picks.” As a Philly gal (born and raised) and a big fan of the magazine (I made the print edition back in 2008 – less than a year after launching this blog), it was awesome to come full circle and to be profiled again. Here’s how they introduced me…

Beauty blogger extraordinaire and Philadelphia resident Daneen Baird knows a thing or two about putting your best face forward. At the helm of the award-winning website, Spoiled Pretty, Baird is constantly ahead-of-the-trend and in-the-know when it comes to the latest and greatest in beauty products and cosmetics. From nail polish reviews to insider tricks of the trade, Baird dishes it all with a bit of sass.

Vaseline Intense Rescue Lotion Comes In Handy

spoiled pretty baking cookies

This past weekend, I embarked one of my favorite winter activities. I channeled my inner Betty Crocker by baking some delicious oatmeal and walnut chocolate chip cookies with my son, Westley.

I’ve never made cookies with him, so I wasn’t expecting to make such a mess.  But to be fair, any activity with a 2-year-old boy is going to get your hands dirty.

Anyway, between the measuring, mixing and sectioning the dough on the baking sheet, we must have washed our hands at least six or seven times.  But, afterwards, my hands were no worse for wear – because right before I rewarded my tummy with a tasty treat, I treated my hands to a generous helping of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion is proven to relieve dry skin after just one application, so it was the first thing I reached for after the cookies went into the oven. It also helps to heal dry skin in three days, so slathering it on regularly has imparted softness that rivals my toddler’s.

It sinks in and delivers much-needed moisture to the top, the core and deep down…without leaving a greasy residue.
