Personally, I've found the Sochi Olympics to be underwhelming, so far. But you know what keeps me tuning in - at least on the figure skating days, anyway? Johnny Weir.
Honestly, the two-time Olympic skating champ turned commentator could be speaking Russian as he critiques the performances for NBC Sports Network. All anyone really wants to know is where they can buy CONTINUE READING

I can’t believe how late I am to the St. Ives Apricot Scrub partay.
St. Ives Apricot Scrub is a perennial award winner (it’s like the Meryl Streep of the skin care world) and beauty gurus rave about it. I recently tried it for the first time and after I marveled at my baby butt smooth face, I immediately started kicking myself for waiting so long to give it a try.
The scrub exfoliates dull skin away for a smooth and radiant look. The 100 percent natural exfoliants (which include apricots and walnuts) are known to brighten skin; corn kernel meal, which is known to improve skin’s appearance, increases cell turnover. The classic scrub was also newly formulated to be 100 percent sulfate-free.
And now it comes in four formulas, so you can choose the one that meets your skin’s unique needs. CONTINUE READING

Pregnancy hormones have sent my hair follicles into overdrive. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve got a 5 o’clock shadow on my legs at, like, 2pm. And thanks to the ungodly heat and humidity in Philly right now, hiding my grizzly gams under long pants isn’t exactly appealing…especially considering that I’m having one long hot flash right now.
So I recently got reacquainted with my favorite scrub – KP Duty by DERMAdoctor – and it gave me the closest shave ever. Yeah, using it adds an extra few minutes to your shower routine. But it exfoliates so well that it allows your razor to cut super close so that you can go longer between shaves – which is great for me because:
a) no one actually enjoys shaving and
b) in my current condition, the act of shaving my legs is like pregnant Cirque du Soleil.
Oh, and you won’t be able to stop petting your legs because they’ll be ridiculously smooth. I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. KP Duty Body Scrub runs circles around that scrub you’ve got sitting on the edge of your tub.
H&M, the international fashion retailer known for offering fashion-forward apparel and quality basics, just announced its first ever range of skincare with certified organic ingredients.
Debuting in stores at the beginning of March, the range of everyday essentials includes shower gel, body scrub, body lotion, hand cream and lip balm, all of which are based on natural and organic ingredients and are certified by Ecocert (Europe’s biggest certification body for organic and natural cosmetics). The products are available in the fragrance combinations of raspberry and melon or lavender and mint, and are accompanied by make-up and toiletry bags made from organic cotton.
“It felt like a natural step, since we’ve worked with organic cotton garments for a few seasons now. There’s also a strong demand from our customers for organics, and I hope they will be as excited as I am about the new products,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s head of design.
Shower gel contains the juice of organic apples, while organic apple juice and apricot seeds are key ingredients in the body scrub. Organic apple juice and oils from sunflower seeds make up an essential part of the body lotion, while the hand cream has organic apple juice and oils from organic almond seeds. The lip balm has the key organic ingredients of jojoba and beeswax, and all of the products are scented with natural perfumes derived from essential oils, sold in recyclable packaging.
Hey Daneen. It’s Suri, the winner of the DERMAdoctor. Just wanted to let you know I received it and tried it last night on my upper arms where I have KP. Amazing! My skin was sooo soft and the texture already started feeling smoother. I’m so happy I got a chance to try this. Thanks!!
Stay tuned for the next Spoiled Pretty giveaway. The next contest is just around the corner.
For the past six months, I was anxiously counting down the days until September 24th. Not because it was my birthday, but because I had insider information that MAC was re-releasing its Volcanic Ash Exfoliator as part of the Style Black Collection. If you’re a Spoiled Pretty regular, you’ve probably heard me mention it once or twice…or, possibly, a million times. That’s how much I adore this scrub.
I’ve tested an excessive amount of exfoliants, so it takes a serious scrub to even get my attention…and the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator is, hands down, the best EVER. Yes, I said ever – as in since primordial soup ’til today.
Originally released as part of MAC’s Future Earth collection last summer, it became a cult classic. Those who missed out were singing the shoulda woulda coulda’s. And those who got a taste were wishing they could jump in a DeLorean, rev up the Flux Capacitor and go back to June 2008 and snag a lifetime supply. I fell into the second category, rationing my Volcanic Ash Exfoliator like it was a bag of beans on a season of Survivor.
Now that MAC has answered my prayers (and even packaged it in a convenient tube), I’ve stocked up and I suggest you do the same. It’s already sold out on maccosmetics.com, so I suggest you do your best Sherlock Holmes impression and sleuth that sh*t out (hint: Macys.com and Nordstrom.com still have it in stock).
And don’t just buy one lonely tube. Ah, naw. by the time you buy one, try it, and realize you can’t live without it, exfoliating fools will have wiped out the supply. So just trust me on this one, act like you’re at Costco, and buy in bulk.
The Style Black collection also includes these other gems:
Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask, $19.50 Formulated with volcanic ash and natural oils, this ash-black facial mask simultaneously deep-cleanses and treats the skin. When water is added, the mask heats up and the oils instantly lubricate the skin, leaving it feeling soft and clean. Helps keep skin moist, clean, soft and evenly textured.
Mineralize Eye Shadow, $19.50 Cinderfella: Mineralize black with silver pearl (frost) Gilt By Association: Mineralize black with gold bronze pearl (frost) Blue Flame: Mineralize black with blue pearl (frost) Young Punk: Mineralize black with pinkish purple pearl (frost)
Congrats to Suriyati Barnes and Faith Perfecto, winners of the DERMAdoctor giveaway. These ladies have won the best body scrub ever, DERMAdoctor’s KP Duty Body Scrub. This amazing exfoliator acts as a chemical peel and microdermabrasion session in one – leaving skin resurfaced, retexturized, soft, smooth and radiant. I am 100% confident that Suriyati and Faith will love it as much as I do!
Many thanks to DERMAdoctor for spoiling these readers pretty. Stay tuned for your next chance to win. The contest I have cooked up for later this week is hot like fiya!
