neutrogena triple moisture deep recovery.jpgWe all need a little boost of hydration for our hair during the cold, dry months. Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask is a product we turn to when we are in need of a great conditioning treatment, and don’t want to spend a lot of money. Recessionistas rejoice— this moisture replenisher doesn’t cost very much!

This conditioning mask can be used as little as one day a week and up to three times a week if you have extremely dry hair. Because of its light formula, it never weighs hair down, and many hair types can benefit from it. We love how it leaves our tresses feeling soft, manageable and full of life. What more could we ask for? $6.99 at
benefit that gal.jpgThe winter season can leave our once bright complexions looking dull and lifeless. Since we’ve discovered Benefit “That Gal” Brightening Face Primer, we never have to accept that sad state of face!

“That Gal” is a silky pink primer that makes any skintone appear smoother and brighter. It can be worn alone for clear complexion radiance or applied before makeup for smooth, effortless application. We love that we can use it to also “re-brighten” later on during the day! It’s great if you need to re-do your makeup, but don’t have time to wash your face.


With soothing raspberry & chamomile, combined with sweet almond & algae extracts to help skin retain its natural moisture, “That Gal” only leaves our skin feeling soft and silky. We love that the light-reflecting pigments work to brighten our complexion with out being glittery— what can we say? We can’t get enough of it. Good bye dull skin! $28,

frederic fekkai coiff celebration of style set.jpg


Celebrate the new year by resolving to take chances with your hairstyles each day! Since a new year is a fresh start, it makes sense to make changes that will not only make us feel better, but help us look better as well. A new, healthier diet and exercise routine are typical, but still great, roads to head down. However, we feel that doing something good for ourselves in the beauty department can also help give just the right amount of “boost” to go out into the world with confidence!




Fekkai COIFF Celebration of Style set wraps up best-selling tress essentials and special Frederic Fekkai pro tips. Each product contains the key ingredients you need to create straight, tousled, or curly looks for any occasion, and one key product is included from each of COIFF’s styling segments (Pre-Style, Style, and Finish). Whatever your mood, these products help make the mane to match!

This set includes 1.5 oz Anti-Frizz Creme, 1.5 oz Ironless Straightening Balm, 1.0 oz Finishing Creme, and a special insert with step-by-step instructions for creating three signature Frederic Fekkai looks. Happy New Year! $20,
AT-BPC-2.jpgWe all love to have that bright, wide-eye look, and curling the lashes can really help achieve this. Lashes that have been curled open up the eyes, even out stubborn lashes, and short, puny lashes take on thickness and appear longer. While lash curlers can give us the ultimate, glammed-up look, they can sometime cause breakage or create a dent that looks unnatural.

Thankfully, we’ve discovered the Skinn Professional No Damage Lash Curler that bends lashes for an all day lash lift without kinking them or causing damage. Plus, the soft silicone strip is laced with protein, so it helps reinforce lashes at the stress point for less breakage! The spring-loaded style gives us better control while curling, and the silicone pad ensures just the right amount of pressure, with no pinching or crimping. We think we’re in lash curling heaven…

jurlique biodynamic refining treatment.jpgWe fell in love with Jurlique’s Biodynamic Beauty Refining Treatment a few months back, and can honestly say our skin has thanked us for it (well not literally, but you know what we mean). It has reduced the appearance of pores, smoothed out rough skin texture, and lessened the amount of discoloration we have,  revealing only healthy, luminous skin.

This expert complexion solution uses extracts of Willow Bark to help renew skin, while Apricot Kernel and a hand-harvested biodynamic blend, straight from Jurlique’s farms, gently slough away dull skin.
