BeautyFrizz Brand Review: Wen

There are tons of WEN by Chaz Dean reviews available, but I have used the product myself and would like to add my two cents to the feedback. The featured product is the cleansing conditioner. It’s the product that started the revolution really – a non-foaming conditioner that also cleanses your hair. I tried it […]

BeautyFrizz Brand Review: Philosophy

The tagline for Philosophy (also available on QVC) is “makeup optional skin” and I love this concept! They are not telling you to wear a ton of makeup and they are not telling you to wear none at all. They are boosting your skin’s health and appearance so that makeup becomes optional as fun instead […]

Paula’s Choice (also available at other retailers like QVC and Nordstrom) is a brand committed to and focused on customer education above all else. Paula Begoun initially began with her Cosmetics Cop books, offering advice and product reviews, and her reputation grew from there. While I do not own any of her books, I use […]
