Glitzy pastels are all the rage this spring season judging upon our new arrivals from Deborah Lippmann's Staccato Collection. This new trio combines black glitter with traditional soft pastel hues for an interesting juxtaposition. Inspired by some of the most popular ice cream's and childhood favorite, cotton candy! The pastels we've seen come across our desks have had more of a matte finish so it's nice to have an edgier option with a little more pizazz! From left to right: I'm Not Edible (panicked pink staccato), Polka Dots And Moonbeams (sprightly black and white staccato), and Rockin' Robin in mint staccato.Read More »

Heading to sunny skies for spring break? If so, you've probably got a new bikini, kaftan, and beautiful makeup all packed. However, I believe you're forgetting one important essential - sunscreen. Although it's not the most sexy thing to think about, I guarantee you'll thank me for this friendly reminder when you're one day into vacation and get absolutely scorched. We've all been there and when it happens we swear it will be different the next time.
The excitement of spring break and endless parties leaves little time for remembering to apply your SPF. Make it easy on yourself and bring products that are quick to apply and most importantly, ensure your skin is protected from those harmful UV rays. One we have our eye on at the moment is Supergoop's Antioxidant Infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C. Water resistant and formulated with 30% less alcohol content then other leading sprays, this aerosol mist makes sunscreen application easy without worrying about that tell-tale oily residue.
Enjoy your spring break, stay safe, and please stay protected!

Shop Bliss now! Cellulite plagues many women and even a small number of men, however it still remains one of the hardest skin issues to treat. Unfortunately, a lot of the time cellulite is hereditary and hormonal based which can be totally out of our control. It's a common condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled appearance. However there are some measures we can take to minimize the appearance of those cottage cheese thighs.
I'm well accustomed to cellulite (thanks mom) and have tried a number of at home remedies such as drinking a lot of water and trying to cut back on processed and fatty food. That's great for prevention but there are some great devices on the market that can help visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite like the FatGirlSlim Machine by Bliss. This body contouring system utilizes a vacuum massager in conjunction with a firming cream to give those troubled areas a more contoured, smooth silhouette. Cellulite might not be totally gone, but you'll feel more confident about the upcoming swimwear season!

Forget BB's, now it's all about the CC's. Creams that is! After their huge success in Asia, BB creams took the US market by storm for their formulas that act as a primer, tinted moisturizer, and anti-shine product in one. Now CC Creams, which stand for complexion correcting takes it to the next level by offering fuller coverage like you would get from your favorite foundation. Great for sun spots and redness, products like Supergoop's SPF 35 Daily Correct CC Cream also give the added bonus of sun protection so you get to prevent further sun damage as well as correct existing unevenness. It comes in two great shades of light/medium and medium/dark and is so light it feels like you're not wearing anything!

Exfoliation is one of the keys to hold off premature aging and just keep your complexion looking even and radiant. It's one of my absolute favorite parts of a beauty routine because it actually feels like something is happening (especially if the texture is gritty). Needless to say, I'm always on the lookout for great and effective exfoliants to try so my interest was piqued when I saw Peter Thomas Roth's FirmX Peeling Gel featured in Star magazine.
This is unlike any exfoliant I tried in that you don't need to wet skin to use. Instead, generously massage it over a dry face and watch as the product causes your dead skin cells to visibly roll and lift off! How is this possible you must be asking? Multi-action enzymes and cellulose gently remove impurities without drying or irritating your face to reveal a more youthful looking complexion. The FirmX Peeling Gel dulls away skin in under a minute so perfect for those busy career women or stay-at-home moms.

Although the face maybe the first area we tend to put a lot of effort into maintaining its youthful radiance, little do we know that the neck and décolletage are actually the first areas to show signs of premature aging. For most of us, me included, it's hard to remember to bring your face cream down through the neck when you're in a hurry or to apply SPF in your car to these important areas.
Eventually, the skin on our neck will start to become more elastic and sag (turkey neck ladies?) and if we don't take preventative measures sooner than later we will end up looking a lot older than we really are. Lucky for us there are some great preventative products available that target that particular area - Firmarine Neck Cream by Erno Laszlo. Formulated with spirulina maxima and antioxidant vitamins, this firming cream will help tighten and tone up lax skin and restore its supply of collagen and elastin. Make sure you apply this over a cleansed neck and massage in upward motions over the neck and chin line for the most benefit.
Also, don't forget to apply your favorite SPF the best step to fight premature aging!
