Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Suspiria

obsessive compulsive cosmetics suspiria nail polishI think I have a new favorite nail polish. I’d never tried Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nail Lacquer before, so I requested a few shades for review. I cannot believe what I’ve been missing! Their polishes are absolutely beautiful. The coverage is opaque and even – and the shades are unique and eye catching. When I look for a new nail polish, I’m always looking for colors I’ve never seen before – and their collection is just that.   (more…)

White On: Supersmile Super-size 4 Piece Whitening System

Supersmile Super-size 4 Piece Whitening System with Rinse & Rods

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 antiperspirantMy 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…)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap

blow pefect shower cap

The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them all. And no matter how much they cost – from the flimsy free ones you swipe from a hotel to the more expensive caps – they’ve always let me down. They inadvertently allow moisture in. Or the elastic band loosens, allowing strands of hair to escape the shower cap and get all soaked up. Don’t you just HATE that?

After decades of the shower (and sub par shower caps) putting a damper on my do, I didn’t think it was possible to make it an entire week without steam wrecking my blow dry/flat iron handiwork. That is, until I discovered The Perfect Shower Cap from BlowPro four years ago. Seriously, the name does not exaggerate. (more…)
