Product Review: Baby Foot

Baby Foot I recommend you buy this product immediately.  I’ve done this treatment twice myself and have also bought it as a gift for several people.  It’s incredible and deserves all the hype. After soaking your feet in the provided booties for a couple of hours, the fruit acids get to work removing all of your dead skin.  It can take up to six days before you start to see

September Favorites

Just a few things I’m loving this month. NexGen Curling Iron by Hot Tools: I did some research on this before I bought it.  It gets great reviews and I agree.  I got the 1 1/4″ barrel.  Heats up fast and makes big, bouncy curls.  Available at Ulta.

Product Review: Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts

  Wow.  These bath salts have developed a cult following and it’s no wonder.  They’re amazing.  Cult Beauty describes it as “a natural version of valium.”  That’s an apt description.  It also claims to treat insomnia and absorb radiation from mobile & computer use.  There’s no way to quantify a reduction in radiation but it treats insomnia like a dream.  This is a wonderful and luxurious sleepy time aide. The

July Favorites

  To the list – BUMBLE AND BUMBLE A Tint of Brown Hair Powder: I love this tinted dry shampoo.  It cost more than the tinted Batiste which I use regularly but it can cast a grayish residue and this does not.  Comes in various shades, available at Sephora for $36 and salons. Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp & Hair Serum Concentrate: I’ve just started using this this month and it’s

Product Review: Skin&Co Roma

  I received these two Skin&Co products in a sample box recently.  Mostly, I want to talk about the TRUFFLE THERAPY SERUM which is absolutely wonderful!  It smells wonderful and I noticed a positive effect on my skin almost immediately.  It’s expensive, $75 for 1oz. but I’d buy a full size tube if I came across it again.  Amazon has it at a discount.  Read more about its benefits and ingredients

January Favorites

Happy New Year!  Here are a few of my favorites for January. Dew Me Moisturizing Makeup Setting Spray by Urban Decay: Having dry skin, I prefer to use a spray rather than powder to set my makeup.  This one is great.  Your makeup will stay in place throughout the workday or evening.  And, your skin will glow!  This is not a matte finish hence the name, Dew Me!  Available at Sephora
