• Product Review: FeedMySkin Strawberry Scrub in a Tub

    FeedMySkin, Strawberry Scrub in a Tub, $12,

    I have an obsession with body scrubs. I love how the granulated sugar feels as it gently removes dead skin. I love how soft and smooth my skin feels as I wash the scrub away with lukewarm water. I especially love the delicious scents most body scrubs leave behind. With the summer sun literally frying my skin, I have found that I am constantly in need of quality body scrubs in order to keep my skin soft, supple and smooth. One of my newest favorites is FeedMySkin Strawberry Scrub in a Tub. This delightful, organic scrub is made with granulated sugar, shea butter, coconut oil, real strawberries, cocoa powder and coffee. What I love about this line of skin care products is that they must be kept in the freezer to maintain the integrity of the ingredients and formulations.

    In order to use the scrub, I had to defrost it overnight in my refridgerator. After a grueling workout, I decided to treat myself to a nice total body scrub. I dipped my hands into the container and scooped out enough to do one arm. I immediately noticed the sweet fruity scent that was heavenly and delectable. I scrubbed one arm and could instantly feel the smoothness coming on. I proceeded to do my entire body excluding the face. This scrub is not for the face as it would be too abrasive and could cause irritation or other skin issues. I highly recommend this product for those with normal skin. Those with sensitive skin might fine the sugar granuales to be a little too harsh and those with oily skin will most likely not like the oil left on the skin after washing away the sugar granuales.

    Another key thing to remember is to not use this scrub or any other scrub on skin with open sores, lesions or abrasions. Scrubs will only exacerbate the problem and may lead to more harm and additional healing time. All in all, I love this scrub and will be using it all summer long to keep my skin swimsuit ready!

  • Product Review: Stages of Beauty, Harmony Collection

    Stages of Beauty, Harmony Collection, $74.99,


    Rarely do I gush over a product when I first use it. Maybe it’s because I’m a seasoned beauty writer who has read every press release and scoured through countless emails and sales sheets singing the praises of products and collections that only turn out to be lackluster at best. Being a former beauty PR girl, I know the ins and outs of selling beauty products and let’s just say we are taught to stretch the truth a bit every now and then.

    So, that brings me to my latest review and the reason I am now a believer in press releases again – Stages of Beauty Skincare! This amazing collection is based on your age and not on the hottest ingredients or cool packaging. Each collection goes out of its way to figure out which issues are the most prominent for each age group and dutifully tackles those issues which the appropriate formulation.
