Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: Aquaphor

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!

Words From The Wise: DERMAdoctor Has The Prescription for Reader’s Milia

dermadoctor+physical+chemistry Words From The Wise: DERMAdoctor Has The Prescription for Reader’s Milia
Linda, a Spoiled Pretty reader, wrote me with the following skincare dilemma:

“I have a skincare question for you. A few years ago, I began to notice that I was developing these little white bumps on the tops of my cheeks just above my cheekbones. Thinking they were pimples, I tried to squeeze them to see if that would make them go away. They are hard little bumps, and my home extraction did nothing. I tried increasing my exfoliation, but this didn’t reduce the number of bumps either. I have ignored it for the last few months as they didn’t really bother me until recently. I looked in the mirror the other day and noticed that more of the bumps have appeared! I am starting to get worried, but I am not sure what product I should get as I have sensitive combination skin and am scared to try anything that might be too harsh and make the problem worse! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Love your blog!”

I immediately recognized Linda’s issue as milia. So I contacted DERMAdoctor‘s Dr. Kunin for some advice – and a prescription for this reader’s skin affliction.

Dr. Kunin’s response:

It sounds like you are trying to describe a condition called milia; these are essentially very deep seated white heads that have sealed themselves off from the surface of the skin. While these can form just because they can, frequently the use of skincare or cosmetic products that are too heavy for one’s particular skin type can lead to these. Read the labels of your products carefully and make certain they say they are non-comedogenic.

dermadoctor+poetry+in+lotion Words From The Wise: DERMAdoctor Has The Prescription for Reader’s MiliaNext, exfoliation will help keep pores open and reduce your chances of forming more milia in the future. Try products such as DERMAdoctor Physical Chemistry once or twice weekly to obtain a simultaneous physical and chemical exfoliation. Use DERMAdoctor Poetry In Lotion every other night to keep those pores open and your complexion vibrant.

Milia often need to be extracted which is not to easy to perform upon yourself. Your facialist or dermatologist can easily pop them open and extract them.

Thanks for the wonderful advice, Dr. Kunin!

Oh…and Linda, Dr. Kunin will be sending you DERMAdoctor Physical Chemistry and Poetry In Lotion. Help is on the way!

Anew, I Think I Love You

Avon Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion System Anew, I Think I Love YouIf you’ve been visiting Spoiled Pretty for any length of time, you know that I am an exfoliating fool. With all of the buffing and scrubbing I do, it’s a major miracle I don’t look like the Crypt Keeper by now. When it comes to exfoliation, I’m like an archeologist with ADD, relentlessly digging for buried treasure. And I’m not satisfied until my flaky façade is polished baby butt smooth.

I’ve tested an excessive amount of exfoliants, so it takes a serious scrub to even get my attention. But I recently tried a product so mind-blowing that it has my undivided attention. Avon’s Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion is so rocking my world right now, I can’t even stand it.

Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion is a skin system that delivers varied levels of exfoliation. The dual-barrel bottle is topped with a dial that allows you to increase the intensity of the micro-crystal formula, offering multiple strength polishing in one package.

To use, you simply apply to clean, wet skin. Starting with Level 1, use Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion 2–3 times a week for 2 weeks before proceeding to the next level. After completing all 4 levels (8 weeks) stop using for 2 to 3 weeks and then start over at Level 1.

I noticed a dramatic improvement in my skin after just one use, and you know how much I enjoy immediate results. I used it before a date night dinner with Mr. Spoiled Pretty and let me tell you…my moisturizer and foundation melted onto my skin like buttah.

This is an ideal product for anyone with dry skin, rough skin texture, fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone and dark age spots.

Avon Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion gets two very enthusiastic thumbs up. If you’re like me and like to scrub a dub dub it up, you must purchase this product – no ifs, ands or baby butts about it.
