Beauty Test Drive: HydroPeptide Soothing Serum Vs. Egg Whites For Sun-Soaked Skin

Have you ever noticed that when you overdo it in the sun, your skin becomes crazy sensitive? Some of your regular lotions feel like rubbing alcohol or make you feel like you’ve been standing over a deep fryer? My mom swears by egg whites. She will chase you down with raw egg and insist o…

Beauty Test Drive: Julep Luxe Care Hand Creme

I hate to break it to Kim and Kanye, but the word "luxury" is thrown around so much these days that it doesn't mean jack shit. When a beauty product is called "Luxe" or "Luxury," I don't even assume that means it's fancy anymore because you can buy "luxury bath beads" at the Dollar Store.

Lotion For The Lazy Girl

Now you really have no excuse not to lotion up after the shower. Tired or lazy or in a rush? It doesn't matter. Vaseline's Spray & Go Moisturizer makes the lotioning process foolproof. Just aim and spray. This is such great news for that spot on the middle of my back that I can't reach.

Dreams Of Amber And Vanilla

As a collector (read: hoarder) of perfumes and body lotions, I will say that my very favorites are made by Laura Mercier. I was depressed when they discontinued the Vanille Gourmande body lotion last year. I still hold out hope that they will start making it again. It was the most heavenly smell in the…

Show Your Skin Some Lychee Love

I've been a long time fan of Kiehl's products, but their new line of aromatic lotion blends provide the perfect balance of scent and skin softening. Being the body lotion fanatic that I am, I very picky about both aroma and texture. This one goes on smooth and smells delightful. The orange flower and lychee…

10 Perfect Moisturizers For Parched Winter Skin

As of a few days ago, my face has become very, very dry. Until then, I was the poster girl for oily/combination blemish-prone skin, and I've always taken great care to stay as freakishly matte as possible. It seems like the hellish combination of cold, blustery weather and my take-no-prisoners approach to anti-acne skincare ha…

Beauty Test Drive: Sweet Pea Body Butter Duo

It's the least wonderful time of the year. My skin is dry year-round, but fall and winter are the worst of the worst (as in, before writing this post I went to the ladies' room to slater on face cream for the second time today). I don't just have to worry about keeping the ski…

The Best Body Lotion You’ll Never Smell

Isn't it the worst when someone in your office or home slathers on a pungent, overbearing lotion that invades your whole space? I think so too. That's why I love Atopalm's body moisturizer. It's not that it's totally scentless -- I find totally scentless moisturizers very suspect -- it's just that the fragrance is so…

Girl Skin Care In A Boy’s World

Last weekend, I stayed with a few of my dude besties at their house in Austin, Texas. In between eating tacos and marveling at the sheer number of terrible tattoos Austin has to offer, I went swimming and got some sun. Well, wouldn't you know it, a house full of 20-something dudes didn't have any…

Bodycology Cupcake Lotion Will Leave You Smelling Good Enough To Eat

OK, so, I'm not going to lie. Yesterday, I was shopping at Wal-Mart. Sometimes, that's how I roll. Mostly, I go there to stock up on toiletries. You know, self-tanner, so I can look more like Snooki. Stuff like that. In any case, I was pushing my cart down the lotion aisle, cruising the Bodycology

Win This! Hissyfit Body Double Anti-Aging Body Moisturizer + SPF

We spend tons of time (and money) washing, toning, and moisturizing our faces to keep them smooth and free of blemishes and fine lines, but most of us just slap on any ole body moisturizer. When we're old and gray, our faces will be oh-so-smooth, and our limbs will be covered in wrinkles. But not…
