In this video and post I discuss my top 10 drugstore makeup favorites. You don’t need to spend a bundle to look flawless, at any age.
I am often asked what hair products I recommend that can be found at the drugstore. I had no idea since I mainly use(d) high-end products so this research was for us all. Well, guess what? There are a lot of great finds to be had!
Last month I did a post on the best organic lip balms which is all fine and good, but do you give the color you put on your lips much thought? You should. Considering women ingest anywhere between roughly 4-7 pounds of the gunk they put on their lips in their lifetime, it’s thought provoking.
Due to some recent allergies I have become somewhat of an expert on organic beauty and I thought, why not try mascaras even though mascaras are one of the few things I didn’t have to change from my routine. I figure, It can’t hurt to use a more natural mascara, right? But I tried a few organic mascaras a few years ago and they, ahem, kinda sucked. They either clumped like crazy or just slid off my lashes after a few hours of wear. It was a gooey mess.
Valentine’s Day has come and gone and what are you left with? Dead roses. Not me. I would rather have a bottle of rose perfume I can wear all year long. Make that several bottles of rose perfumes. Truth is, I can take or leave a dozen roses but I cannot resist rose fragrances.
Valentine’s Day is supposed to be about the ones you love, but besides my husband there are a couple other men I love who are really important in my life…the men responsible for my hair. Ask any woman over the age of 35 you know and she will tell you her colorist and the person who cuts her hair are as vital as breathing. In my case they are both men and they both work at Sassoon Salon in NYC.
In this episode Lauren and Joan discuss the lengths they would go to in the pursuit of looking younger.
I have read women ingest anywhere between 3.7 pounds to 7 pounds of lipstick (that includes balms) in their lifetime (various reports all have different numbers). Yet if you think about it, ingesting anything you put on your lips that isn’t organic or somewhat healthy is kinda…gross. Once I learned I was allergic to metals and preservatives (which is in a lot of lipsticks and balms) I started researching healthier options. So in this post we are going to take a look at organic lip balms.
Ever since I learned this past November I have suddenly developed allergies to a lot of preservatives and metals found in skincare, beauty and makeup products – my life has been turned upside down. Finding a body wash without unwanted chemicals, metals and additives isn’t as easy as you’d think…well at least good ones.
When I recently learned I had developed skin allergies to most of the makeup and beauty products I have held near and dear to my heart – it was unnerving to say the least. I pay attention to what I put into my body, but never gave what I put on it much thought, until I was forced to. Finding foundations that are healthy and work really well has been my mission.
I recently shared I have had to become a green beauty blogger out of necessity, so the hunt is on! My skin is no longer reacting well to preservatives and other gunk found in many beauty and skincare products. One premium skincare brand that kept coming up in research and recommended by friends was Tata Harper. Therefore I knew I needed to try some of the products. The line was founded in 2010 by Tata Harper with the brilliant idea people no longer have to sacrifice their health to look and feel beautiful.

OK, here comes the snob in me, but I don’t typically frequent Walmart. There. I said it. Costco and Target are my jam, but Walmart? Not so much. Well that may soon change. Why? I recently made a rather shocking discovery. Hard Candy Cosmetics sorta rocks and it’s only available at Walmart
I am often asked about my daily beauty and makeup routine must-haves – the items I can’t live without. I try/sample so many products I could probably open a small store, but there are a few I need. Murad ‘Invisiblur™‘ Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++, $65 As you know I don’t get the mail without SPF, so why…
