Invisible Shield is Here! The New Must-Have Daily Sunscreen from Glossier!

I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before but I am on an adult touch football league. I know, very shocking, but don’t judge a book by it’s cover! Anyhoo, a few weeks ago during one of our games it was an extremely hot, sunny day and I forgot my sunscreen. Fortunately, one of my amazing teammates had some for us all to use and since I don’t play about my sunscreen I slathered it all over from head to toe.…

Ladies, Let’s Get Real About Facial Hair Removal. I’m Not Talking Eyebrows!

Lumina Finishing Touch Personal Hair Remover

About five years ago I started threading my brows. Prior to that I had been waxing them but realized pencil thin wasn’t really my look, and decided to switch to a more shape-driven hair removal process. This was also the time in which I got tired of having beauticians ask me the extremely invasive question, “upper lip?” So I decided to tackle my lady ‘stache as well and got a two for one special… When I tell you real tears were…

Vitamin C: The Answer to Your Skin’s Problems, Mainly Dark Marks!

Vitamin C Peel

A few weeks ago I was browsing through one of my favorite websites, Refinery29 and one of their beauty editors mentioned the importance of Vitamin C. This piqued my interest since I hadn’t previously heard many people talk about Vitamin C. Especially since everyone has this huge Retinol obsession right now, so I was excited to hear about something new in the way of skincare. Vitamin C has a number of benefits for the skin, it helps to defend it…

My $6 Skin Savior: Korean Sheet Masks by LEADERS

When I tell you I am addicted to masking — I’m not joking. Hard stop. It all started when I was a little girl and used to see my mom and grandma applying those facial masks that you peel off at night. I’d always get super excited when my mom told me she’d be using one because she would let me help her peel it off. Back then I didn’t fully understand all the benefits that masking had, I more so just…

My Secret to Radiant Skin? The Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. And It’s Only $15!

I first got my hands on the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser ($15) when I was shopping in Sephora this past September — because it was my birthday month, they offered a free gift with purchase. I initially chose the Fresh items because I wanted to try the mask (I’m a mask fiend), but ended up loving the cleanser more! I’m typically someone who likes a cleanser with tiny micro beads that exfoliate the skin, so I can “feel” like it’s really working. However,…

My Winter Skin Has Been Rejuvenated Thanks to Desert Essence

In the winter it is really difficult to achieve “glowing” or refreshed looking skin when the climate is literally sucking all moisture from it. Recently, however, I’ve received a number of compliments on how “fresh” and “flawless” my skin has looked and I really owe it to Desert Essence. I have kept my skincare routine very simple this winter, with my main focus being on retaining moisture. For the most part, I use one facial moisturizer for both day and night, occasionally…

Vajacial: I Decided to Get a Facial..for My Vagina

Now, before I get started let me clarify that a Vajacial is for the outer part of your vagina — the pelvic area specifically. Not inside like vaginal reconstruction or rejuvenation, ha! Anyhoo, I came across an article recently about an editor who had visited Haven Spa in NYC to get what they call a “Peach Smoothie,” which is essentially a facial but for your vagina. For this treatment they gently cleanse the area with a special exfoliating scrub, followed…

So Excited to Announce that I’m Now a Glossier Rep!

As you all know I absolutely adore the brand Glossier! I’ve mentioned this previously but it’s definitely the “cool girl” beauty brand of the moment with its no frills and all chic approach. Last Friday as I was getting ready for a night out, I got an e-mail from one of the Glossier Community Managers, Samantha, letting me know that she loves the content I’ve been producing and that they are interested in me becoming a rep for the brand!…

This time, she gifted us all with the very chic Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist ($32) — which I actually had on my holiday gift guide. So you already know I was THRILLED to receive it. I’ve been spritzing it on a few times a week ever since and honestly love how…
