When it comes to beauty, you are a woman who demands nothing but the best. But what about your baby? Why should your little beauty junkie in-the-making settle for Johnson & Johnson?
In 1991, Jessica Iclisoy was concerned about the potentially harmful ingredients that she found in her son’s baby shampoo, so she turned a personal interest in healthful living into a professional mission to create safe products.
Today, she is President of California Baby, an L.A. based, all-natural baby care line. California Baby, which is sold online at californiababy.com and at Whole Foods and specialty stores around the country, includes the popular staple product California Baby Shampoo & Bodywash, as well as aromatherapy bubble baths with names like Overtired & Cranky and Chamomile & Herbs.
California Baby is also wonderful for older children, as well as adults who want to baby their sensitive skin.

Lately, my hair has been looking quite dull. But I was getting tired of piling on shine products, just to have them build up and weigh down my hair. I’d heard glowing (no pun intended) reviews of John Frieda’s Luminous Color Glaze – so I decided to buy a bottle to see if it also deserved the Spoiled Pretty stamp of approval. I’m happy to report that my $9.99 was money well spent.
Luminous Color Glaze is the first easy-to-use, at-home treatment from John Frieda Collection that delivers the results of a professional salon glaze, right in the shower. This easy-to-use gel-creme formula turns the light on dull, lackluster hair – adding a hint of glossy color and multi-dimensional shine.
Immediately, I noticed that my hair was more visibly shiny, and silky – to boot. After 3-5 uses, it promises increased shine, a hint of glossy color, and subtly blended grays. After 6-8 uses, you’ll notice multi-dimensional shine, rich color, and gray hairs concealed.
Luminous Color Glaze is not a permanent hair color, so it will not lift or lighten color. Ammonia and peroxide-free, it’s safe for damaged or processed hair.
John Frieda products are available at your local drugstore.
Pining for something pretty? Tell Sephora what you want! Each week, the beauty superstore will fulfill someone’s holiday wish, giving them their most coveted product (valued up to $300).

The Good – Bliss Snow Wonder Body Butter
Y’all already know that I have much love for Bliss Body Butter, a hand and body moisturizer that “instantly drenches dry skin to leave even the scaliest sort feeling seriously soft.” Just in time for the holidays, Bliss has introduced Snow Wonder Body Butter – a limited edition scent. Infused with the an avalanche of antioxidant arctic berry, vitamins A and E, Snow Wonder’s crisp scent recalls the “fresh fragrance of just-fallen flakes.” This winter, soften and smooth skin with a subtle shimmer…you’ll get a flurry of compliments, trust me!
The Bad – Bliss Clog-Dissolving Cleansing Milk
On their website, Bliss promises that the Clog-Dissolving Cleansing Milk “does exactly what it promises. So whether your face suffers from the typical t-zone traffic jam or is oily all over, this marvel of a milky wash will keep it ‘in the clear’. A must-try.”
Don’t ya just hate empty promises? The gentle, low foaming texture of the cleanser was nice…and the citrusy scent was pleasant. But when it came to the clog-dissolving part, I saw nothing of the sort…the condition of my complexion is no better and no worse than before I began using this product. It does cleanse nicely, but for $28, I expect it to do more than merely remove my makeup.
The Bubbly – Bliss Snow Suit Gift Set
For less than $30, you can purchase the Snow Suit Gift Set – which includes travel sizes of the Bliss Snow Wonder Body Butter and the Snow Wonder Bath+Shower Gel (this foamy body wash evokes a clean, crisp, winter day – without the ‘brrrrr’ factor!). Makes the perfect gift for a friend, loved one, or yourself!
