Product Review: Badger Balm

Badger makes all natural and organic products for the home and body.  I love their little balm tins.  This sleepy time balm is made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Beeswax, Bergamot, Lavender, Rosemary, Ginger and Balsam Fir.  I like to rub a little on my lips and pulse points before my head hits the pillow.  Check out their other balm formulations and the entire range here.  Badger Balm

Product Review: Let’s Mask

  I try to mask my face regularly every Sunday night while watching Downton Abbey or any of my favorite Sunday shows.  I also use a hydrating mask before any special event.  I’m a huge fan.  My philosophy on masks is it’s an important component to include in an overall skincare regimen.  While you may not notice huge results after one use, their benefit comes from ongoing use over time.

Products from Yesteryear

I recently visited The Vermont Country Store which has been around since 1946 and specializing in products from yesteryear.  This place is really neat and makes for a super fun road trip. I picked up several things that I remember from my childhood and others that looked interesting to try. Pinaud Clubman Talc: This is sold as a man’s talc but I loved the men’s cologne scent.  They’ve been making

Product Review: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler acquired cult status years ago and is still the top selling curler today.  This is one of my most essential beauty tools and it still gives my lashes great curl after years of use. At one time it was sold in stores but now you can only get it direct from Shu Uemura for $20. Follow Mad Chipmunk on Pinterest

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.

Product Review: Spongeables

  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. Follow Mad Chipmunk on Pinterest

Product Review: Soap and Glory

  Soap and Glory is a British beauty brand and one of my favorite lines.  Their range of bath and body products are wonderful with scents to die for such as Sugar Crush.  Bath and body products are easily found at Sephora or Amazon.  Sexy Mother Pucker lip glosses and gloss sticks are awesome and carried by Sephora.  Their complete cosmetic range is harder to get ahold of in the

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
