Brand Review: Paula’s Choice

Woman reading skin care label

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 […]

Brand Review: Josie Maran

The argan oil-based Josie Maran Cosmetics (also on QVC) seems to grow daily, in both followers and products.  In addition to skincare, they also offer hand and body products, hair care, and color cosmetics.  The brand itself focuses on what they refer to as “luxury with a conscience” which means to the best of their […]

Product Review: Philosophy The Microdelivery Daily Exfoliating Wash

Philosophy The Microdelivery Daily Exfoliating Wash

Philosophy’s The Microdelivery Daily Exfoliating Wash is one of my favorite physical scrubs ever. And believe me; I’ve tried a lot of them! I think it is gentle enough for daily use, although I do not exfoliate on a daily basis. I usually use it every other day or so, when it is in my […]

Product Review: Josie Maran Argan Balm

Jose Maran Argan Balm

Another one of my go-to goodies is the Josie Maran Argan Balm. I have yet to find something it can’t moisturize! I have used it under my eyes especially during the dry wintertime. I have rubbed it in and around my lips when that area gets dry and uncomfortable. It makes a terrific overnight treatment […]

Product Review: Ole Henriksen Power Peel

The Ole Henriksen Power Peel facial trio set is hard to beat! It is a three-step at-home facial peel that combines both a physical exfoliation scrub and a chemical exfoliation peel. It’s a handy all-in-one kit really. The three steps are as follows: Almond Polish – This grainy exfoliator scrub is applied on cleansed skin, […]

Product Review: Bare Escentuals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15

Bare Escentuals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow

It is distinctly possible that the Bare Escentuals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15 has a permanent place in my makeup bag! My favorite shade is the Soft Linen. I have also tried the shade called Divine Wine but it’s a little too intense for me. During the week, I use […]

Celestolite Jade Spectra Collection Review

Celestolite Jade Spectra Collection

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of the Celestolite Jade Spectra Collection. The products were very hydrating and felt luxurious on my skin, and had a pleasant aroma that was not too heavy or too light. The elegant packaging of each product was truly breathtaking and immediately drew me into the experience of […]
