My Epic Hungary Haul – Summer 2017

Budapest

In case you didn’t know, last month I went to Budapest on a vacation. We had a great time looking at architecture and drinking wine. But, you know me. I’m obsessed with skincare (and everything else). So, of course I took the time to check out drugstores and beauty stores. I’m embarrassed to even post what I bought because I went crazy. I blame the fact that my hotel was next to a DM Drogerie (one of my favorite stores).

When I travel, I look for things… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Thesis Natural Body Products Review (Rose Vanilla)

Thesis Beauty is an indie line of natural skincare and body products based in Massachusetts. They sent this rose lover three products to try:

Thesis Rose Body Scrub

Favorite Suncreens for the Body – 2017 Edition

Pola Negri

So, my needs and requirements are different for a body sunscreen than a daily face sunscreen.

Unlike my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face, you won’t… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Simply Scrub Scrubs

I use body scrubs all year long, but I do find myself using them more in the summer when more of my skin is exposed to the world.

Simply Scrub is a line of all-natural, organic body scrubs that currently has four formulas. Unlike many products that are the same formula with a different fragrance, each of these are completely different.

I use scrubs weekly, sometimes bi-weekly, on my body. I do not use scrubs on my face since I use chemical exfoliants. Usually I prefer… Continue reading | 3 Comments

Boxwalla Beauty Box Review & Spoiler – February

The theme for the February Boxwalla* Beauty Box was beauty products to help you channel your inner Cleopatra. That statement alone was enough for me to want to try this box. This time of year is dull and fills me with the blahs. If it weren’t for pampering products and rituals like warm baths, I know I’d be feeling even more “blah”. In February, a Cleopatra-inspired routine of milk baths, rose petals and honey sounds perfect.

Here’s what’s in it – SPOILER:
