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

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

prada candy Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Prada Candy Eau de Parfum Gift Set

This Christmas, give the gift of Candy. Not sugar plums or candy canes. I’m talking about another sweet treat.

If Prada Candy isn’t on your recipient’s wish list, it’s because she hasn’t smelled it yet. With notes of white musks, noble benzoin and caramel, Prada Candy isn’t overwhelmingly saccharine, as the name might imply. Powder tempers the sugar, giving this gourmand a classic sophistication.

Prada Candy Eau de Parfum Gift Set Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Prada Candy Eau de Parfum Gift SetYou could buy the 1.7 oz bottle for $80. Or for $2 more, you could pick up the Prada Candy Eau de Parfum Gift Set, which includes an eau de parfum (1.7 oz.), body lotion (2.5 oz.) and mini eau de parfum (0.24 oz.).

Prada Infusion d’Iris Absolue

prada infusion dIris eau de parfum absolue Prada Infusion dIris Absolue

Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau de Parfum is one of my signature scents. In 2007, when I gifted Mama Spoiled Pretty with a bottle for Christmas, I was seduced by its charm, and I’ve been wearing it ever since. In fact, I carry a full-sized bottle in my handbag. So when Prada announced Infusion d’Iris Absolue Eau de Parfum, a sequel to the award-winning original, I couldn’t wait to get a whiff.

Unfortunately, it was originally only sold at Neiman Marcus. Neiman is a little rich for my blood, so I it took me a while to get my my hands on one of the gold-adorned bottles. But, in the past few months, I’ve noticed the perfume popping up at other stores (Nordstrom, Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s) – so I recently reached out to my friends at Nordstrom to request a sample. They happily obliged, so I’m now able to bring you this long-awaited review. CONTINUE READING

Versace Yellow Diamond Giveaway

Posted on by daneen in Bath and Body, Contest, Featured, Fragrance, Giveaway, Perfume | 31 Comments

versace yellow diamond 1024x665 Versace Yellow Diamond GiveawayI have a very discriminating nose, which is why a lot of fragrance reviews don’t see the light of day on the pages of Spoiled Pretty. I have a few favorites (Hanae Mori Butterfly, Prada Infusion d’Iris, Kai, Philosophy Amazing Grace, L’Instant de Guerlain, Carol’s Daughter Sugar-Dipped Vanilla) – but most perfumes don’t impress me enough to warrant a review.

So the fact that I’m posting about Yellow Diamond should tell you that I’m definitely impressed with Versace’s latest olfactory offering. CONTINUE READING
