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

Are You Dreaming of Some White Chompers?

Posted on by daneen in Coupon Code, Discounts, Teeth | 1 Comment

aquafresh Are You Dreaming of Some White Chompers?All I wanted for Christmas was pearly white teeth. And now, I have them – five days early – thanks to Aquafresh White Trays!

In the past, I’ve dabbled in the Crest White Strips; in fact, as I type this, there’s a half empty box sitting in the cabinet under my bathroom sink. I really tried hard to use them, but I just couldn’t get down with the strips. They slid around in my mouth, I couldn’t talk while they were in, and having to put those things on my teeth twice a day for 30 minutes was the final straw. I’m a busy woman and I don’t have time to spend an hour every day drooling on myself. Plus, after a few days of using the strips, my teeth became so sensitive that I quit using them altogether. Perhaps they work great – but I wouldn’t know because they were too much work, too much of an inconvenience, and required too much time.

Enter, my new best friends, Aquafresh White Trays. It’s the same concept as Crest’s strips – but on a whole ‘nother level. The pre-filled, disposable trays are soft and flexible, to offer a custom fit (they remind me of athletes’ mouth guards). Not only do they fit my mouth perfectly, they also fit my lifestyle. Another bonus is the curvy shape of the trays allows the whitening gel to stay put and flow between teeth.

Here’s how it works:
 Are You Dreaming of Some White Chompers?
1) Carefully peel back foil and remove tray.
2) Place trays on upper, then lower teeth; keep trays in your mouth for 30-40 minutes.
3) Repeat once daily for 5 days and for even better results, use for up to 7 days (I noticed a difference after only 3 days).

I wish I had digital photos to show you the difference…sorry ’bout that. But trust me, if your teeth could use some whitening – pick up this product. We ladies spend so much money on our face, nails, skin, and hair – and walk around with Starbucks-stained teeth; it’s just not right!

My tooth transformation is proof you don’t need to go to a dentist for a bright smile…just head to your nearest supermarket or drugstore. But before you go, click here for a money-saving coupon.

Don’t Be Tempted

Posted on by daneen in Bath and Body, Don't Waste Your Money, Holiday | 1 Comment

 Dont Be Tempted
At a company holiday party last week, the conversation turned to beauty products – as it usually does when I’m around. Two coworkers told me the same harrowing story – okay, maybe I’m being a bit melodramatic, but it wasn’t a good story.

Both women recently paid a visit to their local Bath & Body Works and were tempted into purchasing items from the Holiday Temptations line (not a surprise, given the yummy packaging). After taking the products home and using them, they were taken aback by the stains left on their tubs and towels.

We never got around to discussing how well the products work, but let’s be real – a shower gel had better get me squeaky clean (and wash away my cellulite) if it’s going to stain my shower.
