July Beauty Heroes: Josh Rosebrook

How is it Thursday?  How is it mid-July?  How am I 35?  For being known as the time of year during which everyone slows down, this summer sure is flying by.  I’m really excited to tell you about this month’s Beauty Heroes Box.  It’s one of my favorites so far this year.  I promise you […]

Cool Off: The Best Nontoxic Toners

It’s hot, humid and sticky here in Charleston, and I’ve been reaching for my mists, toners, hydrosols, sprays, anything to keep me feeling refreshed.  Back in the day, Clinique and the like drilled into our heads, “Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize”.  It was the thing to do.  Little did we know that most toners were basically just […]

June Beauty Heroes: Honua Skincare

For the last few weeks (which have flown by), I’ve been experimenting with the products from the Beauty Heroes June box.  I have to say, I have a love/hate relationship with testing new skincare.  On the one hand, I know what works for me, so I can be lazy or hesitant to shake things up.  On the […]

A New (Awesome) Release from True Botanicals

Oil cleansing and double cleansing have become increasingly popular in the last few years, and it’s no wonder why; it works.  The one product in my skincare regimen that wasn’t from True Botanicals was my makeup remover / oil cleanser, and for years I’d been hoping they would make one.  My wish was finally granted, and […]

April Beauty Heroes: Lilfox

How has another month gone by?  I almost missed the chance to tell you about the April Beauty Heroes Box!  I haven’t tried a new mask in a while so it was a delight to have the excuse to try two (!) with this month’s box.  Lilifox products are made by hand by founder Alexis […]

Resort-Ready Beauty

Happy Friday!  Like I wrote the other day, I’m jonesing for a tropical getaway, but it ain’t happening this spring.  Ironically, I keep testing products that are the perfect inspiration for planning an escape.  (Insert sad face here.)   I thought I’d share some of my latest finds with you while I wait for the […]

This Beats Out Proactiv+, Naturally

Well, this does not surprise me, or anyone else I know who has tried the CLEAR Collection by True Botanicals, but they recently beat out Proactiv+ in independent clinical trials in combatting both acne and dryness. That’s right.  The toxic skincare system that has literally generated billions of dollars in revenue has been beaten out by […]

March Moisture Masters: True Botanicals

This weather is crazy!  Charleston’s low yesterday – 30 degrees – set an all-time record for March.  I know that is nothing compared to what’s going on in the northeast right now, but to put things into perspective, we are usually in our bathing suits by mid-April!  My skin has been super-dry the last few […]
