Press Sample

Caress is rocking Spring & Summer with their latest Fresh Collection Body Washes and Beauty Bar. Three scents are available in Aqua Sparkle, Emerald Rush and Juicy Escape.

While Emerald Rush seems to be everyone’s heavy favorite (it’s infused with Lush Gardenia & White Tea Essence so I’m not shocked people love it) I’m loving Aqua Sparkle. It’s got a wonderfully fresh scent and pairs up well with the Emerald Rush Beauty Bar. Be prepared for strangers to walk right up to you and ask what you have on. True story.

Caress Emerald Rush #CaressMeCaress is also announcing a their new A-list celebrity Fabulista – KELLY ROWLAND! She’s such an inspiration and a gorgeous lady inside and out! I’m excited to see what she’ll bring to the brand this year as their ambassador!

Dove Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Nourishing Body Wash & Body Bar Review

Press Sample

Have you ever heard the phrase “Good enough to eat”? I hope so, because if you buy the new Dove Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Nourishing Body Wash and Beauty Bar soap someone just may take a big ol’ bite out of you.

Dove Purely Pampering Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Nourishing Body Wash ReviewOf course I’m kidding. No one will literally eat you, but they might jump all up in your personal space and sniff you. And you won’t mind, because you’ll smell amazing!

Dove Pistachio Cream with Magnolia has a subtle and sweet scent of floral but you can definitely tell that it’s mixed with pistachio (my Grandpa used to eat these like he was getting paid to do it). The fragrance is fresh and immediately relaxes me when I’m in the shower. The formula is creamy and moisturizing making my skin will feel soft all day. You can actually use the Body Wash & Body Bar for shaving as well!

Dove Pistachio PamperingIf people taking bites out of you isn’t your thing they also have Deep Moisture & Sensitive Skin Nourishing Body Wash. Same after effects, just not in the divine scent of Pistachio Cream with Magnolia.

Hippity, Hoppity LUSH Easter is on it’s Way!

Press Sample

Or, rather, LUSH Easter is HERE! The collection features eight exclusive and limited edition products along with two gifts so you won’t be overwhelmed, making it easy to take home one of everything! Check out my faves!

LUSH Easter 2014 Photos ReviewGolden Egg Bath Bomb Melt ($8.95 for 3.8 oz.) That gilded orb you see before you is touted as a bath bomb, but it’s also a bath melt! It’s the best of both worlds! The golden exterior is actually cocoa butter dusted with gold and then filled with the fizzy interior. You’ll feel relaxed in the tub and then refreshed and soft when you step out. If you love the Honey I Washed the Kids soap, this one is a must have.

Brightside Bubble Bar ($10.95 for 7.0 oz.) This bubble bar smells so citrusy and juicy… I love how bright it is and the gorgeous orangy grapefruit tinted shade that it turns the bath water! You will smell amazing (even more so that usual). Since Bubble Bars of this size are so fragrant and make piles of bubbles I can use these for almost 10 baths for the kids!

Bunny Bubble Bar ($6.95 for 2.8 oz.) I’m freaking out over how cute this is! My kids got a kick out of the pink shade underneath, because you know we had to start using this from the back end ;) It tints the bath water slightly lavender, releases little blue petals when you get to the middle and smells just like Creamy Candy! This size of a bubble bar is usually good for 4 baths in this house.

…and, seriously… you can’t say no to that cute little bunny butt!

Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream & Gold Camellia Moisturizing Lip Balm Photos & Review

Press Sample/Affiliate Links

Indigo is good stuff. I know this because it’s used to soothe and restore and also it says so on the Tatcha website. What is Tatcha? Simply said, Tatcha was founded when Victoria Tsai visited Japan and discovered the daily regimen of the Geisha within a 200 year old beauty manuscript. Tatcha was born as a way to share these secrets with the world.

Today I’m thrilled to introduce you to two of my new favorite products – Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream ($38.00) & Gold Camellia Moisturizing Lip Balm ($36.00).

Tatcha Indigo Hand Cream Gold Lip Balm ReviewThe packaging is gorgeous. The outer box is simple and gives the appearance of wood, if wood had gold lettering. On the back is a bit of info about the product as well as directions for use.

Tatcha Directions back of boxInside the boxes the products are housed snugly within the purple, indigo and blue packaging. I love the deep, royal purple of the bottles and pots. It’s calming to me but oozes luxury.

Tatcha Hand Cream Lip Balm ReviewUnder the Soothing Silk Hand Cream is a little tale of rediscovery which tells of the origins of this particular product.

Tatcha A RediscoveryTatcha Lip Balm Indigo Hand CreamThe Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream comes in a beautiful Indigo shade and made my hands feel instantly amazing. There isn’t any sort of greasy feeling or residue, but it’s definitely working because my hands feel moisturized and refreshed. There is a very, very slight fragrance, but it’s hardly offensive.

The Gold Camellia Moisturizing Lip Balm has the 24-karat gold leaf topper (which disappears upon use) and does the job it’s meant to do in an A+ way. You just swirl your finger around on the balm and smooth it on your lips. It’s not thick or goopy at all, but still allows your lips to remain supple and moisturized for several hours.

Tatcha Indigo Soothing Silk Hand Cream Gold Camellia Moisturizing Lip Balm ReviewI’ve seen a few products from this brand floating around the interwebs, which are your faves?

Tatcha products are available at and Barneys New York.


Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel Photos & Review

Press Sample/Affiliate Links

If you’ve even tripped yourself into the beauty area of a department store you know that Clinique does skincare and they rock said skincare for all ages. A new product to combat acne joins the line-up this month in the form of the Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel.

Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel Photos ReviewWhat Sephora says about Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel:

What it is:
A topical gel to clear acne and prevent future breakouts.

What it is formulated to do:
Achieve acne-clearing results comparable to the leading topical prescription. Clinique’s powerful daily treatment gel starts clearing blemishes upon application and helps prevent new ones from forming. Clearing Gel is formulated with highly effective salicylic acid to leave skin with a visibly clearer, more renewed, and smoother appearance.

Suggested Usage:
-Apply a thin layer to entire face twice a day after cleansing.
-Spot-apply if you are using another leave-on acne treatment.
-Using other topical acne drugs at the same time or right after use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor.

Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel Ingredients Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel review photosDon’t let the word “Clinical” scare you. Fear not this gel. It’s actually easy to use/apply and you don’t need a medical degree to do so (as the clinical word may or may not imply). For me, gels can get drying so I generally I use products like this as a spot treatment. I found Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel to be very effective in that respect and worked quickly at clearing my blemishes (yes, I get more “blemishes” at 33 than I ever did in high school. WTF is that all about?!). Anyway, definitely repurchasing this once I run out.

Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel retails for $17.00-25.00 and is available at Sephora, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and

As of this blog post if you purchase $25.00 online at Sephora you’ll get a sample of this for free! Use code CLINACNE.
