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

Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: Aquaphor

Posted on by daneen in Fabuless Pick of the Week, Skin Care | Leave a comment

aquaphor Recessionistas Fabuless Pick of the Week: AquaphorFor the past week, I have been suffering with the WORST COLD EVER. At the apex of my illness, I was going through a box of tissues per day – and my poor nose was paying the ultimate price. Last Thursday, the skin around my nostrils was cracking and bleeding so badly that it was an exercise in agony every time I blew my nose. My schnoz was this close to Michael Jackson territory; I was just waiting for it to fall off altogether.

But then, a package arrived in the mail and I was introduced to my new BFF, Aquaphor. This miracle salve nursed my nose back to health. I told my cold, “You wanna be startin’ somethin’? Bring it…I’ve got Aquaphor!”

I don’t know what took me so long to get acquainted with Aquaphor. But I’ll tell you this: I’ll never be without it.

My Favorite Skin Care Products EVER: Amala

amala+skincare My Favorite Skin Care Products EVER: Amala

It’s really difficult to admit this, but I used to be very dismissive of natural and organic beauty products – particularly skin care. I used to believe that I needed to patronize products with harsh chemicals to get my problem skin to act like it had some sense. In fact, I would often joke that I didn’t care what damage a product did to my insides, as long as my outsides were looking good.

But I’ve done a complete 180 since discovering Amala, a luxurious collection of skin care and body care products with 100% natural formulas.

amala+purifying+moisturizer My Favorite Skin Care Products EVER: AmalaEarlier this month, I began testing Amala’s new Purify line – for Earth Day editorial consideration. Purify is a collection of products formulated for oily and acnegenic skin types. The products help control excess oil and shine, clear clogged pores, and prevent and heal blemishes and blackheads with treatments inspired by the healing plants and flowers of Eastern Asia.

So for three weeks, I’ve been religiously using the Purifying Gel Cleanser, Purifying Face Polish, Purifying Toner, and Purifying Moisturizer. And I have to say that besides feeling like I’m indulging in an extravagant spa treatment every time I use these citrus-scented products, my skin hasn’t looked this good in years.

My acne is now very mild, if not practically nonexistent. And my skin is so radiant that many of my friends have remarked about the drastic improvement in my complexion.

While Amala’s Purify price tag isn’t exactly recessionista-friendly (products range from $30 to $136), these products are, in my expert opinion, an absolute steal for the results you’ll see.

I am so enamored with the Purify line that I want to tell every person I meet about this brand. I would gladly be the company’s spokesperson and do commercials – because I feel so strongly about how the treatments have transformed my skin. Hell, I’d do it for free…in exchange for a lifetime supply of this stuff.

Amala is available at Barneys New York and amalabeauty.com.

The Product That Saved Kim Kardashian’s Sunburned Skin

kim+kardashian+sunburn The Product That Saved Kim Kardashians Sunburned Skin

On a recent trip to Mexico, Kim Kardashian accidentally fell asleep in the sun…and awoke to what appears to be a pretty serious case of sunburn.

Today on her blog, Kim dishes about the miracle product that healed her hide:

kiehls+anti oxidant+skin+preserver The Product That Saved Kim Kardashians Sunburned SkinThis face cream saved my life! It’s called Anti-Oxidant Skin Preserver and it’s by Kiehl’s. It is the only thing that calmed down my sunburn and healed my skin!

I am so thankful for this product. It’s very heavy and greasy but that’s exactly what dry skin needs. It’s thick like Vaseline, but its so nourishing for the skin. Having this sunburn was the biggest wake up call for me. I realized how damaging sun is and how important it is to take care of your skin. I’m going to use this moisturizer every night! I’m also on the search for the perfect facial sunblock, so I will keep u posted!
