In the winter of 2011, I was introduced to Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream – and whatever moisturizer I was using at the time went by the wayside. I honestly don’t remember which moisturizer came before (and who cares, really) but I do remember that it couldn’t compete with the Rosa Arctica results. After using it for not that long, I noticed a significant improvement in my skin. During the colder months, my skin is Sahara dry and there are only a few moisturizers on the market hydrating enough to quench its thirst; Rosa Arctic is one of them. But it gets better; the thick cream also smoothes, reduces lines and wrinkles, improves firmness and gives it a youthful glow.
Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream is so fabulous that it pains me when I retire it for the spring and summer months, when my face turns into an oil slick of BP proportions. As it turns out, I wasn’t the only one wishing for a lighter version of this must-have moisturizer. In response to customer demand for a lightweight texture, Kiehl’s just launched Rosa Arctica Lightweight Cream.
Kiehl’s, knowing how much I adore the original, sent me a sneak peek of the new formulation and I have been using it faithfully for a few weeks. I love it as much as the original and I’m so thrilled that I can now use Rosa Arctica year-round. CONTINUE READING

My husband affectionately calls me “Daneen the Clutter Queen.” He’s right: Parting with products absolutely pains me. I keep products I haven’t used for years and will never wear again, and I’m not alone. Do you know that 34% of women admit to having more than 20 products stored in their medicine cabinet, and 27% of women admit to having a product in their medicine cabinet that has been there for more than 3 years?
But, there comes a time in every beauty addict’s life when every bathroom shelf is stocked, every drawer is overflowing, and there’s no room for the new things you’ll inevitably buy. That’s when a cosmetics connoisseur needs to get creative.
I recently discovered a product that will free up space, save you money and get your spouse/partner off your case. CONTINUE READING
This past Spring, I embarked on the 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge. To kick off this partnership, I met with dermatologists from the Eucerin Skin First Council to develop my own personal skincare regimen (stay tuned for more progress updates and fabulous giveaways). But in the meantime, I want to encourage you to join me in taking the Eucerin Skin First Pledge:
I pledge to protect and defend my skin as it does me.
I pledge to make skincare a priority for me, my family, and my friends.
I pledge to treat my skincare more like healthcare.
By pledging to put the health of your skin first every day, we make skincare a priority for our family, friends and ourselves. And when our skin is healthy, we feel confident, and it shows.

The 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge that I announced back in April is fully underway. Last week I had my first consultation with Dr. Deborah Sarnoff, a NYC dermatologist. After discussing my skin issues, she recommended the following Eucerin products for me:
- Eucerin Daily Protection Face Lotion SPF 30
- Eucerin Daily Protection Body Lotion SPF 15
- Eucerin Smoothing Repair Lotion
- Eucerin Skin Calming Dry Skin Body Wash
- Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Foot Creme
I’ll be starting my personal skincare regimen next week, which will continue throughout the year – all while tracking and sharing my progress with you. And because a journey is so much more fun with company, I’ll also be dropping some serious skincare knowledge on you and hosting fabulous giveaways.
You can get in on the action too. Visit the “Digital Derm” tab on the Eucerin Facebook page! This tab offers you the chance to ask one of Eucerin’s Skin First Council dermatologists a question about their skincare and find a local dermatologist near your home. And if you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow @EucerinUS.
So stay tuned, my pretty peeps.
