Beauty Test Drive: Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment

Taking care of my skin always feels like a chore. Whether it's taking my makeup off before I go to bed or using the Clarisonic Mia (which gets me tons of compliments, for real), it's not a habit. Or it's a bad habit. Whatever, you know what I mean. But when Origins sent The Frisky…

5 Oils You Should Be Putting On Your Face Right Now

If you've never used an oil on your face, you're missing out. Really. It sounds terrifying, especially for the oily-skinned, but newsflash: oily-skinned people benefit the most from the use of oil-based moisturizers and cleansers. I am telling you this based on personal experience. Every time I go to my dermatologist, a very intelligent, clinical…

Beauty Test Drive: Moroccan Argan Oil Body Lotion

My history of drugstore impulse purchases has definitely been hit and miss. I have approximately $500 worth of greasy hair potions stashed in my bathroom cabinet that is proof of the "miss" part, but sometimes my tendency to wander the aisles of Walgreens late at night and buy whatever random beauty product catches my eye…

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer

I'd had enough with drugstore moisturizers until I found the heavenly Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer. This little blessing in a bottle was just calling out to my acne-inflamed face. After using the moisturizer for the last four months, I have noticed how few breakouts I now have, how much the size of my inflammatio…

Beauty Test Drive: The Body Shop BB Cream

BB cream is one of those makeup products that just appeared on the American market in the past year, causing every woman here to scratch her chin and say, "Hmmm, do we really need this?!" BB cream is basically a combination foundation/moisturizer/primer and sometimes it's got sunscreen in it, too.  Some people swear by their…

Don’t Worry, Jessica Simpson Is Staying Moisturized During Her Pregnancy

I know this has been on your mind, but no need to worry, people. I would just like to confirm that Jessica Simpson is moisturizing regularly during her pregnancy. She shared her hydration habits with People just this morning. “My entire body is changing every single day … I make it a point to moisturize…

Moisturize Like Royalty

When all it takes is a drop to feel like a princess, you know you've found the right moisturizer. I'm turning my nose up at winter dryness with Josie Maran's 100 percent organic Argan Oil. Truly multi-purpose, this luxurious, lightweight oil can be used on face, body, hair or nails. Legendary for its healing properties,…

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…

Quick Tip: Moisturize Your Cuticles On The Cheap

Every fall, as the temperature drops, my cuticles begin to look cracked, ragged, and just plain dreadful. I've tried a few different products, but nothing has worked as well as Vitamins A+D Ointment. Yes, an ointment that has been used for ages to treat diaper rash is also great at moisturizing cuticles. Hey, chafed 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…

Two Products For The Weight Of One

Between makeup, moisturizer, lip balm and the like, your purse often ends up weighing about 1000 lbs. We're always looking for products that make it possible to schlep one less thing around.

The Frisky’s Style Unboxed: Kiehl’s Ultra Moisture

There was once a time, when I was young and naive and acne-ridden, when I didn't moisturize. I mistakenly thought that because I had been cursed with oily and pimpled skin that there wasn't a need for any additional moisture. I was wrong. Nowadays my skin is much clearer, though I still get the occasional…

Beauty Test Drive: REN Revitalising Night Cream

People consistently fail to appreciate the importance of a good moisturizer. If you're having skin issues -- whether it's dryness, breakouts or something in between -- you can bet that a lack of or improper moisturizing is to blame, at least to some extent. Amongst the biggest cream-related misconceptions is that people who break out…

Shocker: How Much Crème De La Mer Actually Costs

For years now, Crème de la Mer has reigned supreme as the most desirable skin cream on the market. Women claim that once you've used the moisturizer, you're hooked for life. The only negative aspect would be its price, since a 250 ml tub will hurt your wallet by about $860.41. Expensive but apparently worth…

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…
