  • Beauty News: New Skin Care Line for Tweens Hits Stores

    I can vividly recall the first time skin care products became a part of my daily existence. I was in the 4th grade and after a day of running on the playground, I noticed an oily patch of skin in my t-zone area. I told my mother about it and that very weekend we headed to the drugstore to pick up some facial wash and moisturizer. Fast forward to 2012 and Willa, a new skin care line specifically for tweens has just launched across the country. Priced affordably and packaged adorably, the facial cleanser, moisturizer and facial scrub are paraben and sulfate-free and made for changing tween skin however grown women just might find themselves stealing away their daughters’ skin care supply. You can purchase the line on the company’s website, at Target and at J.Crew.

  • 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.

  • Product Review: Jason Natural Glycerin Rosewater Satin Bath Wash

    Jason Natural, Rosewater Glycerin Satin Bath Wash, 30oz, $13.49,

    Organic and natural products have quickly risen to the top of my must-have list these past few years. There are so many wonderfully crafted natural beauty products available; one has no excuse as to why they can’t go green. My newest fave is Jason’s Naturals Rosewater Satin Body Wash. This body wash is delectable and lightweight yet leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth without the harsh chemicals found in most bath and body products. The gorgeous combination of chamomile, rosewater, sunflower, apricot and vitamin E oils come together to create a delicate yet cleansing bath wash that doubles as a wonderful bubble bath. I highly recommend this product especially for those with sensitive skin or who are looking to scale back on products rife with parabens and other chemicals.
