Moroccanoil Body Collection

moroccanoil body collection Moroccanoil Body CollectionYou know that…

OMFG, I can’t live without it!
How did I ever survive before this?
This is the answer to my prayers!
Was someone reading my mind?
Why didn’t I think of this?
Where do I get more?

…feeling you got the first time you tried Moroccanoil? Well, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you need to go read this post and then get yourself a bottle. But if you’re familiar with the miracle elixir that is Moroccanoil, you’re going to love my latest discoveries.

So a few weeks ago, a surprise package from the Moroccanoil geniuses showed up on my doorstep. Waiting for me inside was their new bath and body collection, which includes Body Buff, Intense Hydrating Treatment, Hand Cream, Cleansing Bar and Body Souffle.

I must admit, even though I’ve been a Moroccanoil nut since 2008 (I own almost every single hair product), it never occurred to me that they would or should venture into body care. Their products are so amazing and transformative for hair that I figured they’d just concentrate on that. But if they limited themselves to my myopic thinking, the world would be missing out on some seriously Holy Grail body products. (more…)

SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit Review

sensationail invincible gel polish starter kit SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit ReviewAs a busy mom who loves the look of fresh nail polish, but has neither the time for regular salon visits nor the time to invest in an at-home mani, I was very excited by the idea of a DIY gel manicure kit. So when Nailene offered me their SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit to try, I jumped at the opportunity.

Yesterday, I tested the system – with gorgeous results. In less time than it typically takes for me to paint my nails and wait for them to dry, I gave myself a SensatioNail manicure and pedicure with mirror-like shine that promises to last 2 weeks with no chipping. (more…)

Polished: Purple Posy by Sally Hansen

sally hansen Prabal Gurung nail polish Polished: Purple Posy by Sally HansenDesigner Prabal Gurung collaborated with Sally Hansen to create three nail polish colors this spring, and Purple Posy was one of them. This color is a violet creme color, and it is unlike anything I have seen around. I had to have it!

I must admit that I was skeptical, because Sally Hansen products don’t always have the best staying power. I took a risk because it is a fresh color, and I adore Prabal Gurung’s designs – he can do no wrong! (more…)

Bite Me: Bite Beauty Lush Lip Tints

bite beauty lush lip tints Bite Me: Bite Beauty Lush Lip TintsA few weeks ago Bite Beauty sent over two of their new Lush Lip Tints for me to try. They have a bunch of colors that look cute – I got cherry and black currant and I really like both. They are lightly scented, and go on really smooth. They’re hydrating but not super slick or sticky like some glosses can be. The formula also has some staying power, which was nice. And the shades are flattering and not too bright. (more…)

Cute and Comfy: Sofft Ramona II Pumps

max and cleo pleated dress Cute and Comfy: Sofft Ramona II PumpsA few weeks ago, I posted a pic of this Max & Cleo dress I was planning to wear to a wedding and solicited your advice for complementary shoes. The resounding consensus was that I should jazz it up with a pair of colorful kicks. But while I loved many of your shoe recommendations, my wide, flat feet started to hurt just looking at those stilettos. So I decided to use your suggestions as style inspiration and search for similar heels in a less intimidating height. Unfortunately, 99.9% of the cute heels out there are too narrow for my Flintstone feet, not to mention ridiculously sky high. Seriously, how women can stand in these things, let alone stroll? Inquiring minds want to know.

I went to Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, DSW, Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdale’s  – and came up with nada. I was this close to switching the dress – all because I couldn’t find appropriate shoes – until I happened upon the Sofft Ramona II Pump. (more…)

Nicole by OPI: Kourt Is Red-y For A Pedi

nicole by opi kourt is red y for a pedi Nicole by OPI: Kourt Is Red y For A PediI am absolutely obsessed with Nicole by OPI’s Kourt is Red-y For A Pedi - from the Kardashian Kolors collection. I typically gravitate towards edgy shades, but I’ve been seeing a lot of celebs sporting orange-y red manicures and I couldn’t help but hop on the bandwagon. So I reached into the recesses of my nail polish collection and unearthed this gem, which OPI sent me for review last year (better late than never, right?). (more…)

Eucerin Challenge Badge 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge: First ReportThe 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:

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.
