Golden Face Oil review, and more… I don’t know about you, but the holiday stress hasn’t quite melted away for me yet. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a spa day? And since we’re dreaming big, how about a spa day at the world’s #1 Destination Spa according to prestigious Travel & Leisure Magazine: the…

MAC Liptensity Lipstick Swatches and Review

MAC Liptensity Lipstick Swatches and Review

I went to the mall on Black Friday, intending to do some Christmas shopping for friends and family. Crazy, right? Just being there was a sensory overload, but things got even more intense at the MAC counter. I was mesmerized by the array of lip color on display. That’s where MAC blew my holiday shopping…

Sweet Like Sugar: Zoella Beauty

Sweet Like Sugar: Zoella Beauty

I have a terrible sweet tooth. I usually keep it in check, but sometimes my desire for something sugary is too much to resist. “A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips” only goes so far. I’m not made of steel! Zoella Beauty understands the irresistible appeal of sweets. Their new Jelly &…

Saffron…Great for Paella AND Your Hair!

Saffron…Great for Paella AND Your Hair!

In the summer, when a heavy cloud of humidity settles over the east coast, I don’t even bother trying to blow dry my hair into any semblance of sleekness. In the cold months, when the air is drier, my hair is too. Which also isn’t very good on the “sleek” front! So I must admit,…

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer and Phyto Replenish Oil

The more I learn about Dermalogica’s products, the more I admire this brand’s ability to solve issues in simple, effective ways. That being said, I’ll admit that when I looked at the no-nonsense packaging of the two Dermalogica products I tested, I was initially unenthused. They look clinical, and, frankly, not very exciting. It took…

There’s a reason an Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream sells every 9 seconds…

Because it’s good, very, very good… I have a confession. Despite my best intentions, I sometimes find it hard to love natural brands as much as I feel I should. For all their good vibes and healthy ingredients, sometimes green products feel a little Stone Age when compared to the technological advances of science-based brands….
