Product Review: EFFACLAR DUO Acne Treatment

  This acne treatment by La Roche-Posay kept popping up in magazines I was reading and getting rave reviews.  I picked up a tube to have on hand for the occasional breakout.  Having used it for several months now, I see what the fuss is all about.  It definitely cuts the healing time drastically.  Contains 5.5% Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid, both essential in reducing the severity of acne and

Product Review: got 2b POWDER’ful

  For massive volume, go for got 2b POWDER’ful by Schwarzkopf.  I’ve gone through several of these little bottles.  It’s great on freshly washed hair for instantly grip and volume, 2nd day hair for lift, and for up-do’s too. Just sprinkle on your roots like a salt shaker and rub it in with your fingertips.  It has a slightly sticky texture.  It’s quite the performer!  Available at drugstores and Ulta.

  Check out these pre-soaped exfoliating body scrubbers from Spongeables.  I usually keep one of each in my shower, the body scrubber and the foot scrubber.  I’ve turned my friends onto them by giving them as gifts and they love them. Find them at Ulta. Mad Chipmunk

Product Review: Bioderma

  Super performers from the French skincare line, Bioderma. Hydrabio Serum: I love this intensely hydrating serum and I use it before I apply moisturizer.  It’s from their dry and dehydrated skin range which my parched skin loves. Bioderma Crealine H2O Micellar Solution: Hands down the best makeup remover on the market.  Beauty bloggers and magazine editors have been banging on about this cleanser for years.  Not only does it
