    Lauren Conrad is a fan of the balyage hair trend Ombre was the hot thing in hair last year, but it’s been replaced this year by the balayage trend — the ever stylish Gisele Bundchen, Lauren Conrad and Sarah Jessica Parker are all fans. While ombre is a gradient of color that goes from darker to lighter (or vice versa) down the hair shaft, balayage (which means “sweep” in French) is about bringing color forward towards the face. Hair stylists vertically sweep the color with the tip of the brush and only to the front of the hair, which in turn creates a sun-kissed look…

And her hair was definitely “the thing” because, she kept her makeup simple and basic keeping the focal point on her face-framing lighter locks. I’m digging the new color, I think it adds a little youthful play to her look. Her bronzed cheeks play up the golden girl look nicely, as a finishing touch.

And now Essie has done one better with Toggle to the Top.Toggle to the Top is a gorgeous crushed garnet liberally packed with red glitter.

    You know the movie Mallrats? Well, I was one. Back in the mid 90's, I used to spend EVERY. SINGLE. SATURDAY. at the best mall in Cleveland, the one and only Beachwood Place. I wandered through the stores with my friends, pretty much obsessed with everything I saw or tried on ... and, during one of these trips, my long-standing love of The Body Shop Glycerin Soap was born.I think I originally gravitated toward these vegetable-based soaps because of the price. I could stock up on every single one and not empty my wallet. But, after awhile, I kept coming back because they smelled fantastic and…

    Just last week, I talked about how my obsession with red hair began. Well, I've taken the obsession to a new level with my latest hair color experiment! Over the weekend, I visited Wendy Close at Pittsburgh's Studio Booth Salon to take my tresses in a bold new direction ... BRIGHT RED!But this isn't just any bright red. Wendy and I looked at a LOT of photos of red hair to make sure we picked out the perfect shade. Right now I'm really loving bright coppers, mainly because I'm still (and always) inspired by Christina Hendricks of Mad Men. But I really wanted to do something a little different…

    As we are in spring now and thinking forward to even warmer weather as summer will be here sooner than we think, I am lightening up where my skin care is concerned. That means I am turning to lighter products; lotions instead of creams. It doesn't mean that I don't need lighter benefits though. I still need hydration and all of the anti-aging benefits that I can get. One line that has products on the lighter side that is chock full of anti-aging ingredients is the new 5-piece Advanced System from Meaningful Beauty.

Now, there are a lot of contouring products available; there are things like bronzers and powders in tones darker than your skin tone that you could use to try to create the defined look. But when a brand like NARS sets out to create the perfect contouring product they don't take it lightly. NARS took everything into consideration when creating their brand new Contour Blush. They created a blush that creates natural-looking definition with a luminous finish.

    Now that spring is here, I feel like I am counting the days until I am wearing shorts. If you remember, I lost some weight last fall and have to shop for some new summer clothes and bathing suits this year. There is a bit of "go me" but a bit of a "yikes" going on in my head at the same time. With bathing suit shopping comes those triple sided mirrors and the ugly realization of some cellulite that I have going on behind me. While I think I am doing all I can to tone up that skin from that weight loss, I had forgotten about that orange peel looking skin I have on my legs. Luckily there is…

  • 5 Crucial Makeup Tips Every Allergy Sufferer Needs to Know

    16 Apr 2014 | 11:02 am
    I can't tell you how many times one ill-timed sneeze ruined all of my hard work with a mascara wand. #allergyproblems. Can any of you relate? When you have allergies, your relationship with makeup becomes a little complicated. On the one hand, you don't want to pile on a lot of products, because maybe your skin is sensitive, your eyes are watery, or you tend to rub your eyes or blow your nose and smudge it all off. On the other hand, the worse your allergy symptoms are, the more it shows in your face ("Allergy Face" is the term Zyrtec coined for it). So makeup can become pretty important when…

No, really, if ever there were evidence that Duchess Catherine's hair has magical powers, this is it. Strong winds whipped them around like crazy while she got off the plane in Sydney. But then after they died down, everything magically fell back into place. No scraggily tangles in sight. Yeah, yeah, you can hypothesize that this means her hair must really be in good shape to resist getting all clumped…

Now said colorist Tracey Cunningham has followed up by posting all the details on her own feed. Don't you just love social media? Alexander's hair already had been dyed darker than her natural shade, so Cunningham used Redken Flash Lift 40 vol in foils to strip it out. As for why she chose the powerful formula, she explains, "It is much harder to get out artificial color to lift out to pale blond." Then she…

    MAC Hi Jinks! Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour MAC Hi Jinks! Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour ($21.00 for 0.43 oz.) is described as a “bright coral.” It’s a medium, coral-orange with warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had good, buildable color payoff, and the texture was thin, emollient, and creamy. On the lips, it’s very unforgiving and will cling to any unevenness, dryness, cracked/chapped areas on the lips, and in general, it looks dry (and feels drying) on. The color lasted four hours on my lips, but it wore longer on cheeks at seven hours. IT Cosmetics…

Officially, it has a Lustre finish, but the texture wasn’t quite as glossy–a little drier overall–and the pigmentation was mostly opaque, which is unlike traditional Lustres, as those tend to be sheerer. It…

    MAC Rose Blend Studio Sculpt Shade & Line MAC Rose Blend Studio Sculpt Shade & Line ($21.00 for 0.06 oz.) contains pink and gold eyeshadows with a gray-purple eyeliner. The Studio Sculpt Shade & Line Eyeshadows can be used wet “for a defined look with super-saturated colour” or dry for “medium buildable coverage.” The pink eyeshadow was on the dry side, while the gold eyeshadow was powdery. The eyeliner shade was more workable and yielded decent pigmentation with a damp application, but it was still problematic. On the lid, all three lasted for eight…

The Studio Sculpt Shade & Line Eyeshadows can be used wet “for a defined look with super-saturated colour” or dry for “medium buildable coverage.” This is one of the easier shades to use, because the two eyeshadow shades aren’t too powdery and yield the appropriate pigmentation for dry/wet applications, so they don’t feel overly fussy to use. The eyeliner shade is still…

    Let's ignore the fact that when I woke up this morning there was a coat of snow on the ground. We'll pretend that it's already bronzer season and have a look at this new one from Make. The online photos of this product (both on weseebeauty.com and on Barneys' website) were incredibly tempting, and even though the lovely pattern appears less crisp in person, it's still an attractive little thing. I bought another one for my sister which had a slightly sharper lines, so your mileage may vary.Make Solstice bronzer comes in three colors. This is W2, the medium one. It's a mosaic of four shades,…

    Yes, another misspelling of "smoky" (which, by the way, is NOT the  British/Canadian way, just as it is not the correct American spelling) which appears all over Barneys website. But even I can't get too cranky as the product in question, Surratt Smokey Eye Baton  in #3 Cendres, is a truly fabulous one.The Baton is a double-ended pencil. One side is a reasonably soft pencil, while the other is an eye shadow that comes through a chubby sponge applicator and looks almost creamy (it's a powder, though).

    A couple of years ago I got curious about  Swiss drugstore brand Mavala. The products weren't (still aren't) widely available here, which added to the appeal, I guess, but Beauty Encounter had a nice selection of makeup, nail stuff, and skincare, so I placed an order and hoped to be wowed. I wasn't. The eye makeup remover pads (a very popular and highly regarded product) made my eyes sting, and the cute little nail polish colors looked dated, as were most of the other items I tried and ended up feeling like I was using drugstore products from the 70s and 80s.  It just wasn't a good…

    I have a special event coming up this weekend that I’ve been looking forward to for weeks. I haven’t had the opportunity to get dressed up and fancy in a while, so I’m looking forward to pulling out the heels and little black dress. As for my makeup, I’ll be making good use of the Temptu Flawless Complexion Kit in Poppy Red ($170 US). The brightly colored system is part of their Kaleidoscope Color Collection, which comes in four other vibrant colors for Spring 2014. The first time I tested out the AIRbrush Makeup System 2.0 was on a friend who has the same skin tone as me. The Temptu…

Costumey and visually kaleidoscopic, I found myself really inspired by the textures and colors of his pieces. I don’t usually wear much black as a fan of vibrant colors, but I loved this outfit.

    As much as I love the convenience of having so many brands under one roof when I’m shopping at Sephora or a department store, I treasure the shopping experience I have at freestanding boutiques. The most noticeable difference between the two would be the employees, who are much more passionate and knowledgeable about the company and line at a boutique. Little perks like samples or a visually engaging window display are just perks to the actual people in the store that embody the shopping experience. If you can get to NYC, I highly recommend going to the NARS store on Bleecker St. in West…

She never feels the need to use a mirror unless it’s already conveniently handy. She’s less concerned about the precision of her look, because she pulls off her beauty with an impression of cool insouciance. As for me, I would never trust myself to fix any of the makeup on my face without some sort of reflective surface. Where we differ here though on lipsticks, we find common ground in lip pencils. Even I can dare to apply them without a mirror (though I would still…

    OK. Ladies, has this ever happened to you? You look in the mirror and spot a dark, thick hair on your chin or upper lip. Aghast, you immediately pluck it. It grows back. You pluck it again. It grows back again, only this time you swear it’s darker and thicker. What’s going on? You’re not alone. The bad news is that it’s all too common among most women. The good news is that it’s almost always benign. First, it’s a myth that plucking hairs causes them to grow in darker or thicker. These hairs are coarser and thicker because they are secondary sexual…
  • Will Less Shampooing Help With Oily Hair?

    Dr. Benabio
    8 Apr 2014 | 10:07 am
    I get this question all the time from patients, particularly men. Here’s the truth about shampooing and oily hair: No matter how frequently you shampoo, your scalp produces the same amount of oil. Cutting back on shampooing will have no effect on your sebaceous glands; genetics and hormones determine the amount of oil they produce. But it will cause dirt and oil to accumulate on your scalp and hair follicles, and could cause inflammation and irritation that might stunt hair growth. How often you wash your hair is a personal decision. Wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo when you…
  • 4 Ways to Treat Damaged Winter Hair

    Dr. Benabio
    18 Mar 2014 | 3:30 pm
    It’s been a rough winter for most of the country. When you’ve got arctic temperatures and gusting winds you’ve also got low humidity in the air. And low humidity not only dries out your skin but also dries out your hair. If your hair is feeling dry and brittle and is seeking the summer warmth, then read on. Here are four tips to help you repair your damaged winter hair: 1. Reduce shampooing. Shampooing every second or third day will allow natural oils to remain on your hair and scalp and prevent further drying. 2. Go deep. Once to twice a week, massage a deep conditioner…

    If you’re a guy reading this, I can be sure of two things: 1. You’ve probably suffered from athlete’s foot. 2. You’ll probably suffer from athlete’s foot again. We know that walking barefoot in public locker rooms, gyms, and pools put you at  risk for athlete’s foot. But now there’s a new culprit in town: your laundry. When researchers in Israel compared fungus-laced socks that were washed in warm water to those washed in hot water, they found that 36% of the socks in the warm water remained contaminated while only 6% of those in the hot water did.
  • Are Skin Tags Dangerous?

    Dr. Benabio
    14 Nov 2013 | 7:03 am
    Recently I had a middle-aged male patient come to me worried that he had cancer-causing growths under his arms and on his neck. Turns out all he had were harmless skin tags. A skin tag is a benign growth of skin cells. They tend to form in areas where the skin creases such as your neck, breasts, armpits, and groin area. Although close to half the population has skin tags, they’re more common among certain groups: women, particularly during pregnancy, the elderly, and overweight or obese individuals. Skin tags tend to run in families, so if your grandmother and mother has them, chances…

The smallest room in your house can make a BIG impact on the planet!  7 out of 10 Americans say they consistently recycle. However, only 1 in 5 Americans consistently recycle in the bathroom. Each year, Americans throw away enough 15-oz.

And if I’m going to be using oils on my kid’s skin to treat sunburn or putting in my bath or something, I need to know its safe. Like NZLavender: NZLavender’s pure lavender essential oil is 100% pure and natural, making it ideal for use in aromatherapy. We are New Zealand’s…

    Generally, stars vary their day-to-day handbag choices quite a lot. Not only does the average celebrity have plenty of money to buy whichever bag she might desire, but most are also regularly sent the Next Big Thing by brands with which they have existing relationships. Not only does it help the brands subtly promote their products, but it gives stars new things to be photographed with every time they leave their houses. Sometimes, though, a star loves a bag so much that it becomes a constant companion, and that appears to be the case with Taylor Swift and her Dolce & Gabbana Sara Bag.

She’s carrying an Alexander Wang Diego Leopard Bucket Bag, which was produced several years ago and is completely sold out. Gisele is a friend of the brand and has walked in Wang’s runway shows before (despite the fact that she rarely deigns to walk during NYFW), so it makes sense that she managed to get her hands on one. You can still find a plain black version of the Diego (which I would not think of as plain in any other context) at Bergdorf Goodman for $875. Gisele is a…

    Kelly
    16 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    Misa Riding All the Rides at the County Fair for summer 2014 is here! Kind of an odd name for a collection, yes? Either way it’s full of really cheery and bright creme shades. Every color here is named after a carnival ride at the county fair. And now I am telling you I want to go to the fair and eat all the things I love eating such as: a giant turkey leg, deep fried mushrooms, pork ribs, popcorn and cotton candy. Yum! The formula for these shades was good. They are slightly thick but easy to work with. They are all nicely self-leveling and covered in two pigmented coats. Perfecto!

    Barielle Spring Vibrants for 2014 is a happy little collection of six new spring cremes. I feel like I am reviewing these so late, and I kind of am actually (I’ve had them for like 6 weeks)! Having said that, I think I am mostly done with spring nail collections, so going forward you will probably be seeing mostly summer shades. Anyway as mentioned these are all creme shades. Some are bright, some are soft and subdued. All had a nice, if thick, formula and covered in just two coats. Great coverage I have to say! My City Apartment My City Apartment is a light grey.

    Kelly
    14 Apr 2014 | 1:00 pm
    L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint is a brand new product this spring and I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about it lately! Upon first glance these seem extremely similar to the new Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks, which I reviewed recently. I actually thought they were going to be less expensive versions of them. But it turns out they are actually more like OCC Lip Tars! Glazed Lip Paints are a hybrid of a lipstick and a lip gloss. They have a nice intense finish like a lipstick, but they’re nice and shiny like a gloss. They have vitamin E and peppermint oil in them, and…
  • Pixi Nail Colour for Spring 2014

    Kelly
    14 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    Are you ready for the intense brightness that is Pixi Nail Colour for spring 2014? This trio of new shades screams HOT WEATHER, sunglasses, and cruises to me. I have no idea why cruises, especially because I have never been on one, but it reminds me of them! And you might want to put on a pair of shades for one of these colors, it’s super intense. The formula for these was pretty nice. They are on the thicker side, but not hard to work with. Each one was just two coats. Lime Lustre Lime Lustre is a bright lime green with strong gold shimmer throughout. I am really happy with this color.

    Randy Schueller
    15 Apr 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Jeff asks… I’m a guy losing my hair in both the front hairline and the crown. I’ve started using Folicure, which is supposed to slow down and reverse hair loss. Are there any ingredients which may do this, or is my shampoo and conditioner just “helping”, meaning it’s not doing anything at all? If the latter is true, what ingredients should I be looking for. Is there any hope for me, or do i need to start practicing my bad comb over? The Beauty Brains respond: I was a bit surprised by Jeff’s question because I have actually worked on this brand in the past…

    As ardent fans of the Beauty Brains already know we’re strong proponents of using coconut oil to treat hair. Based on what we have seen in the scientific literature, coconut oil is the only oil able to penetrate to the cortex of hair where it waterproofs from the inside out. But now it looks like the scientists at Unilever may have some new research showing that other oils work similarly. According to some private correspondence we’ve received, the team working on the Dove Advanced Hair Series product line has been measuring “the absorption of other oils into hair that is…

      This 1956 Maybelline mascara ad is remarkable for one simple reason. (And no I’m not talking about the haunting echo effect at the beginning.) It’s remarkable because of the straightforward scientifically, solid approach it uses to market the product. Basically the message is “use eyebrow pencil to make your eyebrows stand out and use mascara to make your lashes more pronounced. ” There are no fancy exaggerations, no magic ingredients, and no claims about making your lashes look 97% thicker. It’s almost as if they’re selling the idea of using eye…

    Viktoria De Ann is one of my favorite products that I use and sell to my clients.  I have seen such changes with my own skin.   Their products are peptide messengers, so they are applied topically.  They more or  less help your own Amino Acids to replenish. Peptides allow the skin’s cellular function and skin renewal cycle to become optimized and renewed, which replaces the upper thick dead skin cells. Rejuvenation of the dermis helps to renew and smooth the skin’s surface. Renewal of the stratum corneum also helps reduce the appearance of uneven pigmentation and freckles,…

    JoElla Milan
    12 Mar 2014 | 10:11 pm
    I love this product. Skin 2 Skin Care Photoaging Repair Cream. Pigmentation and uneven skin tone is such a problem today.  Dark Spots, Photodamage are known as sun damaged skin is something that most people will not escape. It occurs with exposure to sunlight starting at an early age with 25% of our exposure occurring before the end of our teens. Even if you limit your exposure as an adult and use SPF there is a real possibility you will develop dark spots.   Even if you get rid of your pigmentation, it can come back immediately just spending a short time in the sun without protections.

If your skin is very sensitive, then the Original is good.  Also for skin under 30.  The Diamond is the next step up.  It is 7 times stronger than the Original.  Right now we have a special for the Original which comes with a free 1 oz Gold.  That is a $40.00 value.   You would spray the Gold on the areas that need more TLC and the…

Makeup needs a game-changer!  Turns out, it is here. Now. Blue Sun Research Group has developed Pax Cosmetic…

    Now that my new book, Vintage Black Glamour, is officially out of my hands (and hopefully, on the way to your doorstep!) I am getting back on the beauty blogging horse!  I'm the type of person who believes in signs so when I heard that Academy Award winning actress, Her Royal Fabulousness Lupita Nyong'o, was finally signed to a world-reknown beauty behemoth, I was thrilled!  Lancome is just the right sort of approachable undeniable luxury I'd expect for Lupita.  She may be their first black celebrity spokesperson, but Lancome signed black Dominican model Arlenis Sosa in 2008…

    Let's begin with the beginning and the end: Lupita Nyong'o. Killing it softly (or, rather boldly)  in Ralph Lauren Collection. The jewels are by Fred Leighton and although Nick Barose did her makeup, I'll say the glow is by her mother and father.   Her entire Glam Squad deserves a round of applause! Bravo to stylist Michaela Erlanger, hairstylist Larry Jarah Sims, the previously mentioned Nick Barose for the perfect Chanel reds on her lips (Pirate lipstick (above) and Profound lip liner) and the positively lovely jazz singer turned manicurist to the stars Deborah…

     Dance Legend 092 RozDance Legend's Chameleons collection is amazing.  There are five shades, and each one is an extremely intense multichrome.  This one's called Roz, and as you can see, it truly is a chameleon.  It has a burgundy-plum base and it shifts to a glowing red-orange-gold-green rainbow.  It has decent coverage on its own (I used three coats for opacity) so it doesn't need to be layered, but layering it over black (or another dark, opaque creme base) accentuates the green flash. The formula is a little on the thick side, so I needed to be careful to apply…

    After discovering the newest beauty store to open up in NYC, I kind of lost my mind and wanted to buy E V E R Y T H I N G. Kenig + Aclone is a professional makeup store so they carry lines that are high quality and effective, in addition to more consumer facing brands that are supremely hard to find (think Sigma Makeup brushes, Lucas Paw Paw Ointment, and Sugarpill Cosmetics). When I saw the Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner, I instantly thought of Nicole Guerriero’s post so I picked up the 4 fl oz.

    I’m 99.9% sure that beauty is hard wired into my system because I can spot a makeup brand or a new beauty store a block away (and that’s without my glasses!). During my usual rounds of exploring the city, I spotted a new store along 6th avenue and decided to walk in. All I needed to see was the word “Alcone” to get excited because that meant they had to carry professional products or tools. Imagine my delight when I saw a Sigma brush display in the window – I practically ran inside the store! Kenig + Alcone is a new venture founded by Ricky Kenig (as in THE Ricky…

    I managed to escape all of the Gucci Guilty hype when the scent launched a couple of years back and I’m not quite sure why. Perhaps it was the ad campaigns. I’m not the “edgy” type nor am I daring…I’m more slap on some pink on it kinda gal, but the scents themselves sound interesting. When a sample of Gucci Guilty Black landed on my desk a few months back, I relegated the black and red bottle to my perfume wardrobe and saved it for a rainy day. That day has come and I’m kicking myself for not wearing this more often! An oriental floral (floriental??) fragrance, it has notes of…

    If your skin tans easily in summer, but is paler in winter (like mine!), then you likely have a foundation shade for each season. Now that spring is here in full force and your skin may be starting to tan, consider mixing your winter and summer foundation shades. You might also consider moving to a more sheer tinted moisturizer like Laura Mercier's super popular tinted moisturizer, pictured here. It's my favorite. Image: Pricegrabber

    7 Apr 2014 | 5:24 pm
    by Sian Bitner Kearney: When it comes to trends, I’ve always found the “Old Hollywood” look to leave me wishing I’d been born in the days of Marilyn Monroe and pin-up girls. Amidst all of the sexy poses and fancy dresses was seriously glamorous makeup, and more and more we are seeing this look on the red carpet. Thankfully, you don’t need a silver screen or an invite to a top notch gala to sport this gorgeous look. Here’s everything you’ll need for full on Hollywood glam!

  • Tria Age Defying Laser

    Christina Farrell
    5 Apr 2014 | 11:18 am
    Have you ever wondered why celebrities have that youthful glow, and what their secret is? As a beauty insider, I am here to tell you that the fountain of youth is lasers. They are all the rage. They can help you achieve radiant results, and relieve skin issues that you have long battled with. The benefits range from helping to erase fine lines, skin discoloration, and uneven skin texture, all while imparting a gorgeous luminosity to the skin. It is no wonder that lasers have become the skincare secret that your favorite stars rely on. The one downside? The cost. Professional treatments can…

  • The Real Truth About Looking Younger

    Renée Rouleau
    15 Apr 2014 | 9:30 am
    No one wants to get wrinkles and people will go to great lengths to get rid of them by getting professional treatments (like facials, lasers and chemical peels) or even Botox, dermal fillers or other cosmetic procedures. They will also prevent more from forming, by using topical products like sunscreen and retinol.While all of those procedures and topical treatments certainly have their benefits, I think the first step before deciding a course of action is for people to determine what they want in regards to their skin’s appearance. Sometimes, these professional procedures can…
  • Four Surprising Professions That Age Skin Quickly

    Renée Rouleau
    9 Apr 2014 | 9:30 am
    Whenever I consult with clients, along with asking questions about their skin concerns, I also inquire about their lifestyles, such as their occupations, hobbies and how often they travel. These factors can have a huge influence on how their skin behaves and ultimately how it will visibly age.In my experience, I have found these professions to expedite premature wrinkling and skin aging: Pilot. This profession requires a person to sit in front of a huge window in the cockpit where massive amounts of strong UV light affect the skin. Since UV light is the #1 cause of wrinkles and they are…
  • Can Your Skin Type Change?

    Renée Rouleau
    4 Apr 2014 | 8:30 am
    As an esthetician and someone who has spent the last 25 years working hands-on with skin, I know a thing or two about skin types and how the skin behaves with age, environment, genetics, diet and lifestyle. I believe everyone fits into a specific type, but I find the standard skin types—dry, normal, sensitive and acne-prone—too generic. I believe there are actually nine different skin types and when I work with clients, I can determine which of these nine skin types describes their skin. However, can your skin type change from season to season or even year to year?  The simplest…
  • My Tips for Having a Successful Career As An Esthetician

    Renée Rouleau
    28 Mar 2014 | 9:30 am
    When I started writing this blog in 2009, my intention was to educate others on how best to care for their own skin by separating facts from fiction. What was revealed to me over time was how so many estheticians from around the globe have used my information as continuing education in their own esthetics practices. Along with other posts I have written exclusively for estheticians, here’s some helpful tips for becoming a successful esthetician.  What tips do you have for a new esthetician right out of school? It is a fact that a large percentage of people who go through the effort…
  • On a Budget? Consider Getting Skin Treatments at an Esthetics School

    Renée Rouleau
    20 Mar 2014 | 9:30 am
    As an esthetician and someone who has performed thousands of facials and skin treatments for over 25 years now, I’m a huge believer that using skin care products at home can only do so much to give your skin a desired result. Particularly with conditions like brown spots, wrinkles`, large pores, acne scarring, clogged pores and blemishes, you really must consider getting a professional treatment such as a chemical peel or facial with an esthetician to help improve the look and feel of your skin.  There are many places you can go to get these types of procedures. Examples include…

    Recently I went to Korea, courtesy of Etude House, the Korean beauty (or, as I've learned, K-beauty) brand that is very popular in Asia for their sweet, girly and fun makeup and skincare items, and if you've been reading my blog you'll have come across my Etude House reviews, which span various products, including nail polish, skincare, and makeup.

    9 Apr 2014 | 12:24 pm
    Spring is one of my very favorite times of year. The colorful wildflowers, budding trees, and mild weather make me feel like the world is full of hope and happiness. The abundance of cute Spring decorations don't hurt either. Pretty pastels and candy colored knick-knacks are all around this time of year. These cute little bath bombs fit right in.  I used jumbo sized Easter eggs to mold my bath bombs, but you could easily double the number of bombs by using standard sized eggs instead. The three Micas I chose for this recipe are classic Spring colors, but you could use any other colors of…

    I'm in my thirties, and during the past ten or fifteen years, I've watched in awe as countless friends have gone through the miraculous transformations of pregnancy. It seemed like every time another woman I knew became pregnant, I would learn more than I thought possible about the process. There is so much to know, and sometimes it can feel like there is no end to how much one could learn about pregnancy and birth. I knew that when my own time came I would learn even more, and the past seven months have not dissapointed me in that department.  One technique that I was surprised to discover…

    My blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay and Style Coalition. Whether you want to make a statement or just add a bit of interest to your outfit, jewelry can go a long way. Make sure it matches your stye, budget, outfit, and, if you’re vegan, check that it’s a cruelty free piece. It’s not hard to find vegan jewelry – avoid fur, feathers, leather/suede, silk and natural pearls. Metals, plastics, plant-based fabrics like cotton, and gemstones are all fair game (you may want to check the source of your diamonds to avoid conflict diamonds). If you like…
  • Frank Coffee Scrub – A Caffeinated Scrub with a Twist

    Although I wouldn’t consider myself a regular user of body scrubs, I have tried my fair share over the years. Most have been of the sugar or tree nut variety and have generally proven to be pretty effective. When I first received Australian Frank Coffee Scrub, however, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. It’s simple, yet stylized brown packaging looks like the finely curated bags of fair trade roast found on the shelves of my local hipster coffee joint. After reading the clever instructions on the reverse of the pouch, however, I knew instantly that this was my type of product (Note: the…

    Well known for their cosmetics, cruelty free brand tarte is now making some major waves when it comes to skin care. Entering the skin care market just a few years ago, one product that already has a cult following is the tarte Maracuja Oil. This multi purpose beauty oil claims to hydrate all skin types, repair your skin, and give your complexion and even skin tone. With so many serums and oils on the market, what sets Maracuja Oil from tarte aside from the rest? Tarte also claims the oil will instantly hydrate all skin types, leaving skin toned and smooth.

    Question of the Week: I own more of this brand than any other: Answer – Trust me, I own lots of makeup (see exhibit A above – and that’s just a sampling!), but there are two cruelty-free brands that take up more room than the others. The first is drugstore fave Milani Cosmetics. With such great products at such reasonable prices how can I not pick up a few items every time I’m at the store? I also have a hard time passing up anything from Too Faced Cosmetics – their packaging gets me every time! A few other brands taking up lots of space in my makeup collection…

  • Yes, you CAN go from brunette to blonde by yourself, on a budget! How I achieved my ultimate shade of blonde

    Thomas Marrington
    15 Apr 2014 | 1:18 pm
    Ever since I was 12 years old, I’ve wanted to be blonde. Kind of a weird thing for a 12-year-old boy to obsess over, right? But obsess I did! The summer after year seven (that’s seventh grade in North America), I was finally allowed to get highlights—which made me ridiculously happy, even though they looked fairly awful and got cut out within weeks. The point is, that experience was what started my journey with hair colour. Ever since then, I’ve been fascinated by the subject and consequently have been about every shade of blonde (and brown and red) imaginable. Even purple and a…

    The celebrity beauty close-ups have arrived from last night’s MTV Movie Awards, and there’s a lot to discuss! This red carpet brought a whole range of hair and makeup ideas: evening glam on Rita Ora and Kate Upton; relaxed and beachy on Rihanna and Jessica Alba; and a pop of colour on Victoria Justice and Holland Roden. Here’s what I thought of all the looks, and then I’ll pass the baton over to you! Rita Ora Rita wins the night, in my book. Hasn’t it been amazing to observe her transformation over the last few years? She’s kept her signature blonde hair…

    If you’re a Christina Hendricks fan like I am, then I’ve gotta warn you—after reading this week’s Before and After, you’re gonna feel slightly crushed. That is, if you were holding on to the notion that her hair is real. I don’t know why it took me so long to come to terms with this, but thanks to a few of you ultra-observant commenters on the Mad Men Season 7 premiere beauty report, I now realize Ms. Hendricks has quite the wardrobe of wigs. Not that there’s anything wrong with that—but like I always say with these profiles, it’s helpful to know…

(I’ve just had a horrendous haircut, so the picture is from before the big disaster.) I’m wondering if I’m wearing my hair wrong, seeing as every time I go to a new salon, they seem to have the same vision for my tresses: chin-length and heavily layered on the sides. Unfortunately, all this does for my thick but fine, frizzy and wavy hair (which doesn’t dry into a nice curl) is turn it into a big poofball, and I end up hating my hair until I can…

I would love to say it’s because of my lifestyle with more natural products and watching what I put in and on my body BUT naw I was just fed up! Lol! Last week I went to my usual 2 week fill in appointment at my local nail salon close to my house. The appointment went well until the end. I picked out a pretty lilac blue color gel color and my nail tech applied it to my nails. The color was really thin and looked nothing like the swatch I picked out.

    By Cherise L. Wesson for EllaVate Life Coaching “Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.” – Henry Ford This small statement carries so much truth. Our belief system is responsible for much of our success or failure in life. Often when we do not believe something we will not follow through with corresponding action. In high school I had a friend who would not get on roller coaster rides for anything! She was terrified of them! Her belief was that they were unsafe. Her behavior naturally supported her belief. She often would encourage the rest of us not to…

    This weeks hair crush is I guess an “ode” to my favorite hair style, the classic pixie. Simple, chic, easy, classic. I recently cut my hair from an “undercut” back to a short pixie and I am LOVING it! The classic pixie is so awesome because you can do so many things with this one cut. You can flip it up, wear it down, soft waves, curly, faux hawk, whatever you like. The biggest thing with the classic pixie is getting a great professional cut. If the cut is jacked, the hairstyles are jacked! So that means, don’t try this at home ladies! LOL! Research, find a great…

    Press Sample   The newest fragrance addition to the Dove® Purely Pampering product collection is Pistachio Cream with Magnolia ($6.49). One of my favorite Baskins Robbins ice cream flavors is Pistachio Almond and I love magnolias so I was delighted to try this scent. The Pistachio Cream with Magnolia scent is a mix of fresh fruit and lush florals with rich musk base. This is no normal drugstore body wash scent!

    Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster is what I’m talking about today! And if you are a self-tanning lover, you might really like this product! Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster This is by no means a huge bottle. It’s about as big as my ‘the bird” finger. A little longer maybe, but not by much.

As you get older you just really have to wonder how some people get their drivers license. SERIOUSLY.

I can’t promise that my new-found Olay exfoliator won’t someday suffer the same fate, however, at the moment I love it! I’ve had mixed results with Olay products.

I thought it would be useful in case anyone on the Internet, ever, has to undergo similar project.  After years of blogging, I’ve come to realize that I’m not the only person who truly loves makeup and have accumulated (ahem) more than a few items. By the end of April, I’ll be moving out of…
  • Skincare Sunday: Cafe Makeup Tries Oil Pulling

    Amy
    13 Apr 2014 | 10:22 pm
    Ever since Into the Gloss did a post on oil-pulling, the media has been buzzing about this ancient technique. Essentially, one holds an oil in the mouth for about 2-3 minutes (some say up to 20 minutes). Just like using an oil cleanser, the teeth and gums are cleansed. Others claim that this technique actually reduces plaque, whitens teeth, and reduces bacteria in the mouth.  Liz and I set to investigate. The braver of the two of us (Liz) started about a week ago using coconut oil. After seeing her results after only a week, I decided to jump in. I’d heard that coconut and sesame oils…
  • Skincare Sunday: Amarate Exfolipowder and Sebamed Facial Toner

    Amy
    13 Apr 2014 | 10:05 pm
    It’s hard for me to believe that I used to use harsh products to tackle clogged pores and acne. Are there people who don’t have their Sea Breeze regrets? I envy them. I used to wonder why my skin seemed even oilier when cleansers and toners were supposed to help. Little did I realize that my skin was over-producing oil because I was using products far too harsh for my skin. Recently, I was sent two products that have helped me to cleanse my skin effectively without the harshness. One is Amarte Daily Exfolipowder ($35/2.8 oz.), which is powder crystals that turn into a cleansing…
  • Skincare Sunday: Le Mieux Collagen Peptide Serum

    Amy
    13 Apr 2014 | 7:04 pm
    Le Mieux Collagen Peptide Serum ($85/1.7 ounce) is described as a moisturizing serum which is designed to address hydration, even skin tone, boost collagen, and fight free radical damage. This product, which is intended for twice-a-day use, applies a bit like Chanel’s Hydramax serum–it’s a lightly hydrating gel that leaves skin feeling fresh all day. It’s quite lovely, actually, especially when I extend it’s use down to my neck and décolletage. There’s a restorative quality to the product. As The Nonblonde said in her review, this is lovely to use after…

  • Common Skin Problems for Moms and Families With Sensitive Skin

    Cynthia Bailey
    15 Apr 2014 | 11:28 am
    If your family has sensitive skin, you need to be especially careful about the skin care products that are stocked in the household. I’m a dermatologist and mother and in my household, we all have sensitive skin.  I’m careful about the skin care products that are in every bathroom and next to every sink in my home because it matters to the skin health of my family.  As a dermatologist I know the scientific facts about skin problems and as a mom I know that my kids want to try new products and my husband wants me to make budget friendly choices when I shop.  Here is how I try to…
  • Know Your Options for Anti-Aging Rosacea Skin Care: Find It Again Friday

    Angela
    11 Apr 2014 | 2:52 pm
    Do you have rosacea and have been searching for an anti-aging skin care routine? After a few phone call inquires regarding anti-aging rosacea skin care options, it is time to revisit Dr. Bailey’s blog post: Anti-Aging Skin Care Options for People with Rosacea. As Dr. Bailey notes, anti-aging skin care is especially tricky for rosacea-type skin because any strong acids or rough exfoliation can trigger a flare-up. However, Dr. Bailey has managed to help her rosacea patients not only get their rosacea under control, but also incorporate a gentle anti-aging rosacea skin care routine. For…
  • Best Under Eye Treatments including Retinol: Find It Again Friday

    Have you tried countless skin care products to fix the dark circles or bags under your eyes, but found nothing seems to work? Are you at the point of considering surgery to fix your under-eye issues? Waking up to find dark circles and puffy bags under your eyes almost seems like an omen for the rest of the day. However, depending on the causes of your under-eye circles and bags, there are various methods to nip this issue in the bud without surgery. Dr. Bailey outlines all the best under-eye treatments in her original blog What Causes Under-Eye Circles, Bags, and Puffiness. But before we…
  • Retinol For Your Skin: What’s So Great About It?

    Cynthia Bailey
    1 Apr 2014 | 12:46 pm
    Retinol is a retinoid.  Retinoids are the vitamin A family class of agents.  Retinoids, in my experience as a dermatologist, are the most effective anti-aging skin care product ingredient short of sunscreen.   I’ve recommended topical retinoid skin care products to my patients for over 25 years and I’ve seen the anti-aging results over and over again – smoother more youthful appearing skin, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and a “stop the clock” effect on skin aging.  I myself have used retinoid products for the same period of time.  Yes, I’ve  drunk…

    28 Mar 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Have you established an acne skin care regimen, but still have trouble with breakouts? Do you notice your acne breakouts fluctuate with changes in your diet? Although powerful topical acne products and prescriptions help to control and prevent acne, your dietary intake is another great and natural method to help your acne. As an acne sufferer, I notice how my skin responds to what I eat. However, I never can tell which foods triggered an acne breakout. Dr. Cynthia Bailey asserts an acne diet can assist the success of your current acne skin care regimen in her blog post “4…

    The first (and last) tattoo convention I've been to back in 2011 didn't impress me that much. It was small but it was the first one in our tiny country, so I gotta give them that. I guess the idea blossomed since this year's convention was a real delight. Tattoo artists came from Croatia, Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, Brazil and (of course) Slovenia. I've never seen so many beautifully different people in one place before... =) I took some photos of the artists to keep the memories as much as possible. P.S.: There was also…

It's a pretty unique shade and I don't think I have anything like this in my collection. The formula was OK and the application didn't cause me any troubles. Since this polish has a jelly-like formula, it needs somewhere between 2 and 3 coats for full opacity. It all depends on your nail length and the light conditions. =)…

    It seems that orange is still the new black, even if you’re not in custody. Check out these arresting images. Tangerine dreams. Orange is ethereal in this goddess of a gown. Obvious orange. This gown is a show-stopper. It’s all in the details, in outrageous orange. The complex color announces itself. No further introduction is necessary. Mixed with animal print, orange is outright audacious. Christian Louboutin’s emphasis is strictly salmon with these fabulous satin-bowed shoes.

    Hi guys, I just know you are going to become positively obsessed with my latest shopping triumph: the Mojito, these awesome heels from Paolo Shoes. Paolo Shoes is a haven for offbeat foot fetish fashionistas in the Fillmore district of San Francisco, California, and I bought these hotties last night from my dear friend Gregory Vaughan while shopping with my gorgeous accomplice, Holly. Holly and I loved these shoes at first sight, and it didn’t take any encouragement from Holly or Gregory for me to snatch them right up as soon as I saw them in the window. The avant-garde silhouette of this…

    With so many flat irons being sold every day, it can be really hard to know which one is authentic or which one is fake. Since Chi flat irons are high quality, there are many fake models on the market. So, how to identify if the straightener is the real one or not?

    I somehow made it to this point in April without realizing Easter weekend is upon us. I blame it on traveling for work and not having cable (hence no commercials to watch), but it’s most likely because I’ve been too busy binge watching Drop Dead Diva on Netflix. I know, I have amazing TV preferences. Let’s get back on track, shall we? So yea, Easter is this weekend and I have no idea if we have plans with my BF’s family.

    3 Concept Eyes Super Slim Pen Eyeliner Review One makeup item that I can’t live without would probably be eyeliner. I wear it every day without fail and always carry one around with me (just in case). The 3 Concept Eyes Super Slim Pen Eyeliner is one I picked up in HK along with a few other items from the range (separate reviews to follow!) So my first impression of the eyeliner was that I really like the packaging. The stylo has a semi matte feel so looks a lot more high end and sleek. I also liked the nib of the liner because while it’s thin, it’s also structured enough so…

  • Five Best with Copper Peptides 2014

    15 Apr 2014 | 6:56 am
    Copper peptides are one of the most stellar ingredients. Present in our bodies, copper repairs wrinkles and helps hair grow. And this isn’t based on mere anecdote; copper peptides have an impeccable research pedigree. As the Cleveland Clinic points out, studies have shown that copper peptides promote collagen and elastin production and also act as an antioxidant. Copper promotes production of glycosaminoglycans (which, in turn, work with copper peptides to repair wrinkles and scarring). Studies have found that copper peptides also remove damaged collagen and elastin from the skin and…

The message is that Dermablend's concealing products aren’t camouflaging them but allowing them to be who they really are. AdWeek gushed about how empowering the Dermablend ads are.

Most of the ingredients are organically grown, and the product does not contain any harsh or chemical preservatives. It is simply packaged and easy to use. Dispensed from a traditional pump, the Soothing Complex is a bit heavier than a lotion, but it’s not quite a cream. There is a faint, earthy fragrance that is not unpleasant and dissipates quickly. It is a traditional moisturizer recommended to be used once daily. I used…

  • Growing Out Your Brows: A Survival Guide

    16 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    I was fourteen when I tried my hand at plucking my eyebrows for the first time. It was the ’90s, so thin brows were the thing, a trend at least in part sparked by my celebrity idol at the time, Drew Barrymore, with her silent-movie-star thin arches. After some tweezer-induced tears and sneezes, I emerged with thinner, arched brows. I consider that a major moment in the beauty section of my life timeline. In the years that followed, I moved on to waxing, which was fine until one traumatizing experience with my then-regular waxer, in which my brows ended up super abnormally thin—and one,…

  • The Face Exfoliator That Really, Really Works

    15 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    We’ve all heard it before: regular exfoliation equals more radiant skin. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve tried a handful of exfoliators over the years and was never satisfied until I found Koh Gen Do Soft Gommage Gel a few years back. It’s unlike anything else out there. Seriously. The product somehow manages to lift away dead skin cells on your face (literally!) and smooths your complexion out like nobody’s business. So what, exactly, makes this product different from the rest? For starters, it isn’t formulated with alpha-hydroxy acids, or BHAs, which are super common in…
  • Recipes for Beauty: Sugar Snap Peas

    14 Apr 2014 | 11:00 am
    Green and crunchy with a slightly sweet flavor, sugar snap peas add a bright, summery flavor and texture to pretty much any dish. Late spring into early summer is the best time to enjoy them, when long days and not-too-hot temperatures yield plump, tender pods. In addition to being a nutritious, low-calorie food, sugar snap peas have numerous skin benefits. One serving contains nearly 100% of your daily recommended allowance of vitamin C—which is essential to the production of collagen and elastin, two substances necessary to keep skin firm.

As we age, our hair loses its color and can appear dull, faded and course. Factors that age hair include sun and harsh weather, hormonal changes, chemical treatments, heat styling, lack of protein and the natural slow-down of cell regeneration. Even certain medications such as high blood pressure and cholesterol medicines can age hair. So what can you do to make your hair look more youthful? Aging Backwards Happy Hair Tips…

    The California girl in me still appreciates a Christmas spent in short sleeves, a Santa in a hideous Hawaiian print shirt, and a nice little tan. Maybe thinking about a tan around the holidays is just a longing for the unique joys only contained in the memories of Christmas past. Or perhaps I'm just feeling excited about finding a self-tanner that not only works to create a bronze glow instead of a Cheeto-glow but is also specially formulated for sensitive skin. Either way, I plan to take on this holiday season glowing by a fireplace.The Product St. Tropez Sensitive Bronzing Mousse and…

    It’s been a while since I haven’t posted on my other love, Asian skincare. For Beloved One Extreme Hydration mask quenched my skin during the harsh winter months and before special occasions. This product is from Taiwan. After living in Singapore for six years, Asian skincare became a staple not only for myself but also as a recommendation to my bridal and corporate clients, as part of a regular skincare routine. This skin mask comes in two forms, the individual use ones that are meant to be left on the skin 15-20 minutes before a good night of sleep, (I always leave them on for…
  • Molton Brown Eucalyptus Body Scrub Review

    Norah Salazar
    14 Apr 2014 | 12:29 am
    Molton Brown is an British brand. I first became aware of it when my husband (who hails from the UK), first gifted me a beautiful set of body lotions years ago. One day, he picked the Molton Brown Eucalyptus Body Scrub for me to try, and I was hooked. This scrub is my weekly go-to body exfoliant. It is an oily blend of eucalyptus, menthol, hint of ginger and sea salts. One of the reasons why it is my favorite is due to its moisturizing properties and near perfect exfoliation. Once you start applying in the shower/ bath, the scent is invigorating like an essential oil and feels very…
  • Milani Eyeshadow Primer :: Drugstore Makeup Find

    Norah Salazar
    12 Apr 2014 | 11:31 am
    The Milani Eyeshadow primer is a new addition to my makeup arsenal. I normally don’t wear eyeshadow primer. What I usually wear is long-wear cream shadows like Maybelline or Makeup Forever pencils which stay on well. And if I do powder shadows I will use makeup setting spray after (I love Skindinavia).  However, after reading a few raves about the Milani Eyeshadow primer, I thought I’d give it a go (I picked up Nude 01). The result was an unexpected surprise. I used my Make Up Forever Technicolor palette together with the Milani eyeshadow primer (see photos). What I liked best?

    Kevyn Aucoin is truly an icon in the world of makeup artistry. When I began searching for books to get inspired, his book Face Forward was one of my first ever purchases. I also watched videos of him talking about his career with such passion and love. I even remember seeing Kevyn Aucoin in a Sex and the City episode “The Real Me”, playing himself of course, comforting Carrie Bradshaw, who was nervous at the prospect of walking the runway with professional models. His death was a major blow to the industry but his legacy will live forever as he continues to be a major force in the…

    The weather was absolutely glorious this weekend and it made for a great time with friends at the Prison Dash 5k. It was my first official run of the year and I could not have asked for nicer weather or a more fun event. I don’t think there is anything quite like running by a guard tower first thing in the morning. Now that the weather is nicer I have turned my workouts outdoors. Whether it is doing my post-run stretches out on my deck or throwing on my sneakers for an early morning or pre-dinner run. The spring weather cannot be ignored. Neither can the need to wear bright colors while…

    I love the idea of melding fashion and cars together. They are two of my favorite things. Many times when I look at a car a whole slideshow of images flash through my brain. Music mixes with colors, patterns and clothing to form a solid set of feelings towards that vehicle. The clothing can run anywhere from iconic looks to everyday style are right there playing out in my brain as I take in all the aspects of that particular automobile. I cannot be the only one who does this when they see a car or truck. How else did car show booth babes develop? When I woke up yesterday it was gray outside…

    15 Apr 2014 | 4:00 am
    Kryolan, Cream Colour Circle in Interferenz £14.25/$19.95 (no flash/ flash - I forgot middle colour!)My pet peeve is large products, and I swear it's not just a makeup artist thing. 9 times out of 10 there is no need for it other than justify charging more money. Highlighters are the biggest culprits for this, there is never any need for a highlighter to be a regular powder compact size or larger, no lady is ever going to get through that amount of product before she goes off it or it goes off. For a product like a cream or powder highlighter, where you use a very small amount, in…

    Clinique limited Edition 'Shades Of Beige' Nail Varnish Collection £12/$12.50*I'm obsessed with neutrals, most makeup PRs who know me laugh at my instant gravitational pull to any neutral/natural coloured makeup. Which is why, for me, Clinique's new Shades of Beige nail varnish collection is the nuts. They are literally every neutral shade I could dream of and I love every single one of them. It's very much Sophie's choice picking my favourite, but I will say I'm not that keen on Room Service. I'm currently wearing Peek A boo and Birthday Suit on rotation, they just go with everything…

This is a really lightweight base, so if you just need the smallest of coverage to give you an even skin tone, get rid of redness or just want something to make you look radiant this is the product for you. It gives a perfect complexion that naturally illuminates and corrects skin tone for a flawless finish. It's also really hydrating and soothing so it feels lovely on.

    Chanel Amour GlossimerChanel Amour Glossimer ($29.50) is a vibrant coral pink with fine multi-colored shimmer. This color in my eyes is the definition of Spring/Summer, and is a fabulous shade to rock all season long. Much like Chanel Sourire Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick (in my previous post), it's a great color for those with warm, golden undertones and will brighten the face instantly. The coverage is light but buildable, and pairs really well on top of any pink, peach or coral lipstick and it also looks great all on it's own.Chanel Glossimers is one of my favorite formulas of lipgloss…

It looks like a bright watermelon light pink in the tube, but once the color is applied, it's a sheer warm soft pink. It's a great universal shade especially on warm skin tones, as the golden bits gives the pink some added brightness, so it's not a pink that will wash you out. In fact, it's one of those perfect lipsticks that you can mindlessly toss in your bag for every day and it's so subtle that you can wear it on your no-makeup days…

      Hair thinning and hair loss are very common which everybody is eaten up of. In order to get rid of them everybody gets deceived by all the attractively advertised products which gives no benefit apart from the marketing of the product itself. All the primitive and conventional remedies work at the end which, besides curing, prove to be useful for enhancing the health of hair and above all they work without side effects. They can make you have thicker hair quickly.   Acacia Concinna Acacia Concinna is a small shrub-like tree, its fruit is mainly used for hair. The best way of using…

    Why does our hair regime need to include a detox? You may have heard of detoxes for your body, but have you ever heard of a detox for your hair? Consumers in the United States alone spend over 7 billion annually on hair care products filled with chemicals that remain on the hair as residue. Our hair is like a sponge that absorbs all of the products we use, and this residue will stay on stubbornly without a detox for the hair. This natural absorption is great at first when the product revitalizes our hair to make it appear more healthy and shiny. The problem is when the build-up of residue…

    This post is about dimsum. And more than the little bamboo cases of dumplings and buns, it is about what “dim sum” really means – dim (touch) sum (heart): to touch the heart. I sat around a round table this afternoon with three friends who have known my pains and my joys, and everything that has made my heart sing and bleed. One of them had made it possible for me to leave a painful place; another gave me new ways of looking, feeling and loving; and the last who has only ever believed in the spark within me, no matter how dark things became. And so, after a long, slow,…

This Saturday I realised again that the best adventures are had when you’re just sitting quietly, unmoving, your head in a book. But I also get restless so on Sunday I felt I must get up and move.

I was so impressed with myself for being so upbeat that for the first time in a long time, I thought I’d take my own advice. And so, this Valentines’ Day has been the best one ever. Sans flowers, chocolates, mushy cards or any significant other.

I was really impressed how the author wrote her life story like a novel although I was irritated that I couldn’t think of a single song from the band mentioned in the book. Then I realized its NOT a biography- its a novel. I love the plot of Driftwood: a  young woman named Clementine Jasper, with no real job or sense of purpose sets out on a journey after her father, rock legend Tommy Jasper, dies. Using only the letters left behind from her father as guidance, she takes a road trip that gives her clarity…

Personally I had never really thought of it, I always assumed I picked the first thing that I laid my hands on of a morning, but sat here thinking about what I really do each day, I realise that’s not quite the truth, quite often I will pick something up look and it and pop it back, so while I don’t spend ages fine tuning my outfit, I do put a little more thought into it than even I realised.

    The only thing better than a good body cream is a good body cream that also happens to be inexpensive. Considering warmer weather means skirts, dresses, and tank tops, our skin is about to be exposed to the elements, which means it should really be hydrated. What better way to hydrate than to use drugstore moisturizers that keep our skin soft and our bank accounts in the black? From toning cream to lightening moisturizer to lotion with a touch of tanner, we’ve pulled together a list of the 10 best body creams under $10 so you can have your best skin ever — year-round.

  • What is Looking Young Anyway?

    Meli Pennington
    8 Apr 2014 | 4:00 am
    Is this young enough?   As a makeup artist, I get lots of questions from people on how to look younger. Maybe it comes in the form of “How can I erase my wrinkles?” Or a person points to their least favorite facial attribute and says, “What should I do to get rid of this?” Or, “Should I get Botox to look younger?”   Mostly, I just say, “You look great”, because the answers are so complex, and life is short. But I’m realizing that these questions are based as much on confusion regarding what cosmetic antiaging can actually do as…

If you’re watching the 21st-century version of Cosmos on TV, you’ve noticed astrophysicist and Hayden Planetarium director Neil deGrasse Tyson at his communicative best, bringing the wonder of science to the rest of us. The popularity of the series has landed him a slew of attention – much of it in the form of crush comments on Twitter. Being a nerdy sex symbol is amusing for the married father of two, and it’s nice to see intellect and interest trump abs of steel in the…

    Cinder-effin’-Ella There are makeover movies I love to love – and some I love to hate. Pretty Woman is definitely one I love to hate: it’s corny, and I don’t believe in that whole “White Knight coming to save you from your miserable life” version of love anyway.   But romantic movies aren’t about my social cynicism, and that’s a good thing. Pretty Woman is still one of the great makeover movies, and many of my friends (who I think should know better) love it. So off I go: instead of finding it midway on TV and moaning as I switch channels,…

    One basic that my wardrobe has been lacking for years is a great-fitting, comfortable, shirtdress.  I’ve tried so many styles that didn’t fit quite right.  They were either too baggy, too short, too long, or just looked frumpy.  J.Jill sent me this Chino Shirtdress and I’m pretty much in love with it.  It is unbelievably comfortable when paired with leggings.  Looking at it online I worried that it would be a stiff material (like an old jean jacket) but it is much softer than I could have imagined.  While it is a thicker fabric it is very soft and comfortable.  This…

I have sensitive ears.  Very sensitive ears.  Talking a walk on a windy day hurts my ears and leaves me with an awful headache.  On my first trip to Ireland I spent the last leg laying on my side {Yay for an empty…

    Skin surrounding the eyes are ultrathin and need special attention and care. Regular facial moisturizers are not enough to keep the earliest signs of aging from showing up around the eyes. The important job of keeping skin in the eye area fresh and young-looking falls on eye creams and serums which have special formulations that provide additional protection to the thin, eye area skin, give added moisture to improve skin elasticity, and prevent eye irritation all at the same time. Eye creams and serums, because of their special formulations, and their growing importance to skin health can be…

And just like any other beauty product, there simply are too many choices yet too little science to back up product claims. Even organic beauty products like wrinkle creams are not that easy to find. “Organic” has now become such a buzz word that anything from the food that we eat to products that promote skin health are now labelled as organic.

  • Help! I’m Peeling From Retin A by Deb Chase

    Deb Chase
    12 Apr 2014 | 6:40 am
    Question: I followed  your advice and  started using Retin A  for signs of age — and now my skin is peeling.Does  this mean  its not good for my skin and I should stop using it? Answer: Oh no, don’t give up  just yet!  The peeling you see is the shedding of the top dead layer of skin cells that are clogging the pores and slowing down skin growth.   This is a  major benefit of Retin A and actually a sign that its  doing a good job.  However if the flaking is excessive and unsightly, we need to look at  how you are using Retin A.  Remember you need to avoid other…
  • Is Marijuana the Key to Beautiful Skin? by Deb Chase

    Question: My friend from Holland says that  marijuana is great for the skin.  Is  that true?   How does it work? Answer: You had me at marijuana.  While its true that marijuana ( which is legal in Holland)  contains effective antioxidants in the form of cannabinoids, that is not the whole story….. Smoking marijuana is like smoking traditional tobacco  and  has the same harmful impact  on the heart, lungs and skin.  Some experts even say that it is more dangerous since it is drawn deeper into the longs and held in the airways for greater impact.  Smoke is smoke whether it is…

  • Is Retin A Different From a Peel ? By Deb Chase

    Deb Chase
    4 Apr 2014 | 7:21 am
    Question:  I can buy a peel  at my local CVS  drug store but I need a prescription  from a doctor to get Retin A.  They seem to promise the same  results.  How are they diffeent? Answer:  What an interesting question and a bit  more complicated than it seems.  In general principles, both  Retin A and peels exfoliate the top layer of dead dry skin cells.  This stimulates cell renewal and promotes fresher and smoother skin. The natural life cycle of the skin is designed to shed  this layer of surface  skin.  But factors such as acne, sun damage and aging can inhibit this…

    For a long time, I have lauded the efforts of L'Oreal with their rather revolutionary L'Oreal Youth Code line, which was one of the first products to include probiotics, like Bifida ferment lysate. While this was considered to be cutting edge by most and hokey by some in 2009, concurrent research at the time demonstrated that use of probiotics can strengthen the skin from the inside out (Experimental Dermatology, 2009) by strengthening the skin's resistance to outside stressors.

    If you’re looking for natural allergy relief, you’re not the only one.
