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


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. 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

This holiday season, Cake Beauty wants to stir things up and make gift giving something to truly feel good about. Give Twice, their limited edition holiday collection, will warm your heart and keep our earth cool. They teamed with the nonprofit organization, Zerofootprint, to calculate and offset all carbon dioxide emissions generated during the manufacturing and shipping of the Give Twice collection. Donations will be given to a certified reforestation project.

 Feel Nice, Give TwiceFeel good about giving…give once to a friend, or to yourself and a second time to our world with Cake Beauty’s limited edition Mint Cashmere Cream Collection. The Mint Cashmere Cream Glistening Bath & Shower Froth envelops your skin in hydrating suds that leave behind a delectable, Peppermint Pattie-esque fragrance. The Mint Cashmere Cream Glistening Supreme Body Mousse nourishes with coconut oil, macadamia nut oil, and mango butter. Both are kissed with a shimmer of light-reflecting mica that make skin appear smooth and even…perfect for those festive holiday get-togethers!

After using it, I felt minty fresh – and my husband said I smelled “yummy.” Does it get any better than that?

The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly

The Good – Bliss Snow Wonder Body Butter
snowwonder1 The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly
Y’all already know that I have much love for Bliss Body Butter, a hand and body moisturizer that “instantly drenches dry skin to leave even the scaliest sort feeling seriously soft.” Just in time for the holidays, Bliss has introduced Snow Wonder Body Butter – a limited edition scent. Infused with the an avalanche of antioxidant arctic berry, vitamins A and E, Snow Wonder’s crisp scent recalls the “fresh fragrance of just-fallen flakes.” This winter, soften and smooth skin with a subtle shimmer…you’ll get a flurry of compliments, trust me!

The Bad – Bliss Clog-Dissolving Cleansing Milk
clogmilk The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly
On their website, Bliss promises that the Clog-Dissolving Cleansing Milk “does exactly what it promises. So whether your face suffers from the typical t-zone traffic jam or is oily all over, this marvel of a milky wash will keep it ‘in the clear’. A must-try.”

Don’t ya just hate empty promises? The gentle, low foaming texture of the cleanser was nice…and the citrusy scent was pleasant. But when it came to the clog-dissolving part, I saw nothing of the sort…the condition of my complexion is no better and no worse than before I began using this product. It does cleanse nicely, but for $28, I expect it to do more than merely remove my makeup.

The Bubbly – Bliss Snow Suit Gift Set
snowwonder2 The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly
For less than $30, you can purchase the Snow Suit Gift Set – which includes travel sizes of the Bliss Snow Wonder Body Butter and the Snow Wonder Bath+Shower Gel (this foamy body wash evokes a clean, crisp, winter day – without the ‘brrrrr’ factor!). Makes the perfect gift for a friend, loved one, or yourself!

Models And Mangoes

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Lotion | Leave a comment

Tonight’s episode of America’s Next Top Model entitled, “The Girl Who Gets A Mango,” had its fair share of famous faces – including the delectable Tyson Beckford and Miss Mary J.

But for me, the most exciting guest appearance was that of Lisa Price, creator of Carol’s Daughter, who founded the brand in her Brooklyn kitchen.

In honor of tonight’s eppy, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to a new product from Carol’s Daughter – Mango Mélange Shea Body Lotion. A luxurious blend of 15% shea butter, this moisturizer absorbs quickly and penetrates deeply to hydrate, condition, moisturize, soften and nourish dry skin for an ultra healthy glow.

And how cute was Saleisha when she was begging for some Carol’s Daughter leftovers?

So I’d Like To Know Where, You Got The Lotion

body+gloss+lotion So Id Like To Know Where, You Got The Lotion
Since purchasing Palmer’s Swivel Stick, I’ve become so obsessed with the vanilla scent of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Products that I’m slowly building an arsenal. Last week, I purchased the Body Gloss Lotion – and, again, I am beyond pleased with the product as well as the price.

This lush, luxurious cream illuminates skin with a subtle shimmer. Pure Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, and other rich emollients provide just the right amount of moisture, leaving skin soft and smooth.
