Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream Review

whish shave crave shaving cream 1024x879 Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream Review

Daneen – I know that you like your razor*, but wow, this stuff is awesome!

Do you remember where you were when you learned how to shave? Believe it or not, I was in Tennessee! My Dad was driving our family to Orlando, from New Jersey, for a trip to Disney world. He had the tendency to take the long way to stop at obscure places for sight seeing. I was 10 or 12 years old, and I recall my mom saying that it was time to learn. She took a disposable razor and his Barbasol shave cream and showed me what to do.

Since then, I always got the $1.00 Barbasol shave cream to use. But since it always left me feeling dry (and smelling like a man, ha!), I decided to splurge and get Skintimate – which was definitely better. I never thought I would use anything more “luxurious” than that until Whish Shave Crave found its way to my shower.

Wash Your Hair Without Water: Klorane Dry Shampoo Review

klorane dry shampoo Wash Your Hair Without Water: Klorane Dry Shampoo ReviewFor years, I have read in magazines or heard my hair dressers talk about how it’s not necessary to shampoo your hair everyday. This concept was outrageous to me because mid-way through the day when I don’t wash my hair, it feels and looks oily.

Over the past year or so, my friends started to talk about ho

w dry shampoo has changed their lives. In particular, my friend Elise would bring up dry shampoo anytime we would get on the topic of beauty products. Her hair is similar to mine, so I decided to try the award-winning Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. I selected the dry shampoo with oat milk with the aerosol spray.

Baby Your Baby With Noodle & Boo

I’m even more discriminating with products I use on my kids, 4-year-old Westley and 3-month-old Arwen. So when I rave about children’s products on this blog, there’s no doubt that they are the crème de la crème.

Last month, Noodle & Boo sent me their Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash and Baby Balm to review.

From Arwen’s first bath with these products, I’ve been hooked. Addicted!  (more…)

Back to School: 5 Must-Haves for Daycare and PreSchool

pottery barn kids back to school Back to School: 5 Must Haves for Daycare and PreSchoolWe now interrupt your regularly scheduled beauty programming to bring you an important public service announcement for parents. If you have small children who will soon start daycare or preschool, the following is required reading.

Arwen Grace, my chipmunk-cheeked 10 week old baby, started daycare this week. While it was difficult to return to work and leave my little munchkin in the care of others, I have to admit that it was easier the second time around. With my son, Westley, I felt incredibly guilty – like I was abandoning him. And on top of that, I didn’t know what essentials and “gear” he needed for his days at daycare. This time, I’m informed and prepared. So here’s your chance to take advantage of my expertise.

For baby, you’ll obviously need diapers, wipes, ointment and bottles, but these five must have items are the real lifesavers:  (more…)

White On: Supersmile Super-size 4 Piece Whitening System

Supersmile Super size 4 Piece Whitening System with Rinse Rods White On: Supersmile Super size 4 Piece Whitening System

As the mom of a newborn and a 4-year-old, I live on coffee. Seriously, Starbucks is the only reason I’m conscious enough to type this. But you’d never guess how much coffee I consume to look at my smile. That’s because I discovered a truly amazing teeth whitening system.

I’m on maternity leave and I spend quite a bit of time with QVC on the TV. I get absolutely mesmerized by the demonstrations. Anyway, one day, I watched the Supersmile Super-size 4 Piece Whitening System with Rinse & Rods demo – and I was intrigued. They were showing some unreal before and after photos – and I decided I needed to see what this kit could do for my stained smile.   (more…)

Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!

dermadoctor gorilla warfare hair minimizing antiperspirant Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I’ve got stubble. And forget about skipping days…unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I go through a lot of razors) – it’s also tedious and annoying. There are many days that I make certain clothing choices so I don’t have to go through the trouble of shaving.

So when I heard that one of my favorite skincare brands, DERMAdoctor, has a hair-minimizing antiperspirant, I emailed them with a quickness to ask for a sample I could review for Spoiled Pretty.

Here’s how DERMAdoctor describes Gorilla Warfare:

No need to go ape over jungle-like hair growth and rain forest-level wetness. Stop monkeying around with the ordinary and make peace with two decidedly indelicate concerns with a solution uniquely camouflaged as a daily antiperspirant. It contains fourteen highly evolved botanicals that help turn underarm hair into an endangered species. (more…)
