In April, I declared Amala my skin savior…and for good reason. This luxurious line tamed my troubled skin and restored my faith in organic and natural beauty products. The Purify collection, created for oily and acnegenic skin types, has become the staple of my daily skin care routine; and after two months of using the products, I continue to marvel at the amazing results the ingredients have had on my complexion.
I am so enamored with Amala that we’re partnering for a Spoiled Pretty giveaway! Two lucky winners will receive:
Hydrating Cream Cleanser ($30) Hydrate dry skin while gently removing makeup and impurities with this comforting cleansing cream. The whole botanical ingredients help soothe and restore moisture for clean, soft, radiant skin. Hydrating Toner ($30) Revive and rehydrate skin with this refreshing toner. Soothing floral waters and whole plant extracts help refine pores and restore moisture to soften and comfort skin.
Hydrating Face Cream ($68) Quench dull, dry skin by helping to restore its natural moisture and elasticity with this creamy hydrating treatment. Whole plant ingredients restore elasticity and protect skin from dehydration for lasting smoothness.

Watch my latest NBC 10! Show appearance to hear about my favorite summer beauty staples!
Every member of the studio audience went home with a few product samples. But before you get all “where can I get me a 10! show ticket?” – just relax. How could you think I would forget about my online amigas?
If you don’t know me by now, you will never never never know me…
This week, I’m gifting one of you with a plethora of products that will help you beat the heat and keep you looking hot all summer long!
ModelCo Body Meringue Bronze Glow is an instant bronze shimmer and gradual self-tanner, in a mousse formula. This weightless foam firms the skin while offering a light buildable, natural tan. After smoothing the foam on, a light instant bronze appears so you can see exactly where you’ve applied. And over the next few hours, your tan gradually deepens. The best thing about Body Meringue, IMO, is it’s skin firming properties; it contains an ingredient that helps minimize the appearance of cellulite. Can you even? And if you want to kick your tan up a notch, mist on ModelCo’s Shimmer Airbrush Illuminiser over tanned skin for a sparkly effect. My little secret tip is to spray it in your hair, which looks beyond amazing on all hair colors!
If the Philadelphia heat and humidity turn your face into an oil slick, I feel you. I get shiny too, and it’s very embarrassing and it’s a high-maintenance situation. line of skincare products are specifically designed to control oil. The Cleanser deep cleans pores and the Scrub gently exfoliates. The Primer creates a matte finish, and can be applied on bare skin or mixed with foundation.
Secret Clinical Waterproof Antiperspirant and Deodorant offers all-day protection through heat and humidity, or after being in the water. So it’s ideal in the city, at the pool, or at the shore. The formula is skin soothing, and Secret Clinical Waterproof is designed with two-click applicator to ensure that the right amount of product is delivered to the underarm area with each use.
In the summertime, you want to choose a lighter fragrance because heavier winter scents can become cloying in the warmer months. I’ve found the perfect summer scent: Citron de Vigne Eau de Parfum by Fresh. Inspired by France’s Champagne region, the fragrance has crisp, lemony top notes, a heart of pinot noir and an earthy base. Citron de Vigne is unisex, so buy a bottle and your entire household can share!
This prize is worth over $360!

You know you’ve hit the beauty jackpot when you can’t wait to call your mom/sister/BFF and tell her to put said product on her shopping list…which is exactly what I did after trying REN Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask, a facial treatment formulated to dramatically remove dead cells, smooth lines, and help prevent the appearance of spots and blackheads.
On Saturday, after Amber gushed about her blonde bombshell transformation (at the hands of master colorist, Jason Backe), I dished about my fab new skincare find.
After I slathered the citrus-scented mask on my mug and waited the requisite 10 minutes, I was a bit disappointed. Surely the fact that the peel wasn’t tingling, burning, or sizzling my skin meant that I would soon add this product to my ‘beauty busts’ list, right? Wrong.
After rinsing it off, my skin was soft, decongested and remarkably radiant; while Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask may gentle on the skin, it does a phenomenal job of bustin’ up stubborn blackheads. Post-peel, my complexion was so A-list celeb dewy, I didn’t recognize my own skin.
So if you suffer from dullness, fine lines and/or clogged pores, run out and get you some REN. And once you’ve used it and are thoroughly impressed (which I know you will be), spread the word and phone a friend.
