Best hair removal strategy: threading? waxing? plucking?
Quiz: What's Your Best Hair Removal Strategy?

Discover the right method for your skin and hair type

Sick of feeling stubble on your legs the day after shaving? Maybe it's time to put down the razor and pick up a waxing kit. See which hair removal method fits your needs the best.

Take the quiz

I myself, am a plucker with the sheer joy of the pin like point of my Tweezerman tweezers!
I've never had a wax and don't plan to. I am curious about threading and have seen it done over and over and marvel at the speed and agility of the Pakistani/Indian ladies doing it! I don't really have that much of an eyebrow to begin with, so I steer clear of anyone else doing the shaping.
I have had them professionaly shaped once and felt like she trimmed the brows to short making the sparse hairs look; well, more sparse.

Enjoy the beauty bubble and tune in for the upcoming Valentines to yourself series of giveaways for you!

Products that do double duty in your beauty routine!
Top 27 Multi-Tasking Beauty Products

These amazing products pack a lot of punch in one bottle/tube/compact.

Clear out those cluttered makeup drawers and shower caddies -- now you can save space, time and money with these multi-tasking goodies.

See products

Before you click through and enjoy the beauty bubble, give a quick shout out to what your personal favorite double duty products are.
1. Benefit Cosmetics Benetint stain. It's great for lips and cheek color, lasts all day and I've never had one open or spill while rolling around in my very large purse.

2. Mascara: whichever brand I am using that day, which usually is something from the L'Oreal family of mascaras. When I apply my mascara I rub the wand onto the eyelid along the lash line to make smear, then I blend it with a wee brush so it looks like a bit of liner and is smudgy. Just the way I like it!

Now what are yours?

Village Tea Co: inner beauty for you!
How to Look Slimmer With The Right Makeup and Hair

Who needs Weight Watchers with slimming beauty tips like these?

Don't have the time or energy to actually lose weight? Fake it! These tips will disguise flaws and highlight your best features.

See tips

Personally, I am a big fan of the Village Tea Co. flavor "cherry me bloom rooibos with acai" especially since you can get it in a wee portable tin to take on set!

Alas, it isn't hot tea sipping weather any longer in the greater Phoenix area: we are back to the heat vs. last week's tornado warnings. Below are some celebrity quotes of who is enjoying what! If you are in a warm area like me, do an iced tea!

Melinda McGraw shined at the premiere party for her new film Skateland at The 2010 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. The Mad Men star has been drinking Village Tea Company's "Gentle Organic Lemon Ginger" Tea throughout the festival to stay warm and to keep her skin hydrated.

She reports, "I feel so much healthier drinking this when everyone else is downing vodka. I can't wait for the hot, lemony taste, and I love, love, love the beautiful loose leaves!" Available at for 15.95 for about 40 servings.

Jared Harris, star of Mad Men, stopped by the Gibson Gifting Suite with his girlfriend and director Nathaniel Parker for a hot cup of Gentle Organic Lemon Ginger Tea. Jared and his girlfriend are huge fans of the Royal English Breakfast blend as well – go figure... they’re British!

AminoGenesis Tripeptinon
Best Celebrity Hairstyles for Straight Hair

See how to rock their straight styles with these how-tos

Are you tired of your straight hair just hangin' there? All you need are some tips and celebrity inspiration to bring your flat hair to life.

See celebs

I pretty much love anything that comes in a time capsule, or encapsulated because it keeps air off the product longer until the ultimate moment when you are actually using it.
Very few makeup companies have embraced this formula and it's too bad because foundation could be better preserved in individual doses.

So, that's one of the reasons I am a fan of AminoGenesis Tripeptinon "face lift in a capsule"! Which it is also the winner of the 2006 Editors Choice from Day Spa magazine.

Here's some notes from the website: if you read anything at all, read the last line where you can try it free for 30 days!
Tripeptinon� is an incredible new technology actually designed to lift, firm and strengthen facial connective tissues giving your skin the most youthful appearance possible. While many skin care products try and address the surface issues of the skin, the support and connective tissues have been totally neglected by these other products. Tripeptinon� combines three powerful anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-sagging technologies in each single application capsule!

1) Ceramide 2: The connective tissue of your skin can be damaged by the sun, wind and other environmental factors. Once this occurs the skin begins to sag, wrinkle and may look prematurely aged. This wonder nutrient penetrates rapidly to bolster and strengthen crucial skin connective tissues to improve the appearance of sagging, discoloration, dryness, and other signs of aging.

2) Ubiquinone: The most powerful antioxidant in the world. Its ability to help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging are legendary!

3) Amino-acid Ogliopetides: Clinical trials revealed this amino acid complex actually triggers the skin�s own collagen making and repair mechanism to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, often caused by sun damage.

Tripeptinon� comes in a 40 day treatment cycle. Each capsule breaks open easily and contains the recommended amount for best results. Apply once a day to your face and neck at bedtime and wake up to younger, more radiant looking skin... Guaranteed! Try It For 30 Days On Us!

Ok, so what's not to like about that? For the harsh winter weather, I find that this smooth textured serum is perfect for my dry skin. Maybe you too? Try it and let me know what you think!

As Seen on TV: Strap Perfect; ha!

You and I have both seen the commercial on tv for the Strap Perfect concealer clip: the ultimate bra strap solution.
Yeah, if your a masochist.
It's in Walmart, Target and the local Fry's Marketplace; which is where I got mine on sale with a coupon. Still, I want my money back. ( can't find my receipt! darn it!)
It comes in three colors and the only value to this debacle is that it comes with a nice set of wardrobe tape. Which you can buy in the sewing section at JoAnn's, Target or Walmart. You use the tape, which is double sided to close the puckering gap between buttons on your button up shirts or anywere else you need to close fabric while wearing it.
Oy, where do I start with this bra strap solution thing? And just so you know, I'm not the only one who tried it and found it awkward, uncomfortable, and by far not delivering on the promise it makes in the commercial. (oy! It's like the Bare Escentuals mineral makeup of lingerie)
So in short, after all this kvetching, what I can say is: unless your bra has a single strap of elastic, most, especially if you regularly shop at Victoria Secrets, have a fabric front and elastic back to the strap. Meaning there is not alot of room to pull the straps to the center of your back.
That is unless they are completely made of elastic. Skip this one ladies and put the ten bucks towards a good racer back style bra for tank tops or invest in a really good strapless bra.

Mela-D serum: for dark spots and peeving pigmentation
Keratin Hair Treatments -- Are They Right for You?

If you have curly hair, these treatments might be your new best friend

Wondering if treatments like the Brazilian Blowout are the best way to smooth out your hair? To make your decision easier, see answers to your burning questions and get honest feedback on some of the big-name treatments here.

See facts

You know, whenever I am out doing makeup I get asked alot, especially from asian women about lightening dark spots. Some from the sun, some from age, some just plain 'ol freckles.
Your best and fastest most effective bet, oh and also most expensive is to have them lasered off by a professional dermatologist.
Though, if that isn't in your budget, I bet the La Roche-Posay Mela-D serum might be?
It contains Kojic Acid + LHA, Glycolic acid and is actually hydroquinone free.
What? Hydroquinone free? That's the tradtional ingredient in products like Porcelana that help fade brown spots.
So there is a new product with fresh skin care technology on the market for you to try.
I have a brown spot (is that age or sun?) on my right cheek bone. I put some Mela-D on it and then forgot to do it again for five days because I was working the Barrett Jackson car auction. Hmmm, that's not fair to the product because it needs a steady and timely application. Consistency in application is the key to having the product work; so my one and done didn't work.
I'm applied the Mela-D sample today, and will continue for the next 30 to see what happens to my right cheek brown spot.
In the meantime, visit for more information to satisfy your curious mind!

Effaclar AI: La Roche-Posay's answer to blemishes!
Best and Worst Acne Fighters

See which products actually kicked acne in the butt, er, face

It's a universal agreement: grown-ups shouldn't have to deal with acne! And since grown-ups get to do whatever they want, check out this list of products that are proven to clear up skin!

See products

Well all of us at one time or another get a pimple and need to keep something in the beauty drawer for just such occassions.
I've tried the sample of Effaclar AI from La Roche-Posay which is an intensive acne spot treatment to help control and correct breakouts plus helps prevent residual skin marking.
So that is what is setting this product aside from a traditional benzoyl peroxide acne medication. The Stidex pads of old have the similiar ingredient to help control breakouts, BUT Effaclar AI has a micro-exfoliating ingredient LHA to help minimize the brown red scarring usually accompanied by a pimple.

That blotchy mark is calling card of the pimple and not appreciated at all!

If you do have a pimple, remember not to pick it. Simple steam your skin til it is soft, using a warm wash cloth, apply pressure to the top side of the pimple and gently wipe/press downward so the sebum will be pressed out on the underside of the pimple and leave a flap of skin to help heal the rupturing point.

Or, even better: visit your dermatologist for a professional extraction.

Ooops! Profoot care update & correct website address

I'm apologize for a wrong website address for ProFoot Care!
That's the correct address and where to go to find out more about good tootsy treatments.
I love the blue squishy gel toe spreaders and use them daily. Especially after standing in the freezing wind and rain at the Barrett Jackson car auction this past week.
It's the pump pouches that have me puzzled. Perhaps I have meatballs for toes? I wore them in my work sneakers and work boots ( these are a low 2" heel with a calf length shaft) and always felt a toe numbness while wearing them.
The first time I wore them over my thinsulate socks and it was too tight. The second time I wore them over my stockings; the opaque kind and still it felt too tight and wouldn't fit into my boots comfortably.
So, either these need to be worn on bare toes in a round toe pump or I've just got sausages at the end of my feet.
Either way, suggest try it for yourself. Good foot care alleviates alot of back pain and for the low price and coupon, you may as well give it a try! Enjoy!

The Socializer AM/PM: Elizabeth Grant does it again!
Step-by-Step Guide to Gorgeous Model Hair

Wish you had commercial-worthy hair? It's possible with these secrets

Bye-bye, breakage; see ya, flyaway strands; so long, dull and lackluster hair. Here are 12 fabulous, fresh and easy-to-follow tips for getting and maintaining healthy, soft, shiny and strong hair.

See secrets

I'm a big fan of the Elizabeth Grant eye patches that come in individually wrapped packages. The Biocollasis complex, Collagen Firming and Vitamin C patches kept me looking fresh and rested through the intense weather while working the Barrett Jackson car auction in Scottsdale.
Phew! Now the new item from Elizabeth Grant is part makeup party skin care: The Socializer comes as a two part pen system. One is for the morning beauty routine and one for the evening.

This will appear similiar to YSL and Dior's eye brightening pens, heck, even Avon makes a good pen type eye luminizer product. Though what's different about the Socializer is that it is geared towards eye skin protection and treatment with a beauty bonus to it.

I've been using my sample for several days now and love it!

To use, simply click the button on the bottom of the eye pen til you see a dollop of product come out of the brush. Then using the brush apply under the eye in a sweeping motion and use your ring finger to gently pat the product in.

I've used it alone, under and over my foundation. Plus, I put it on my eye lids to see if they would puff up and swell. Nope. No side effects. Just lovely luminous skin.

Try some! Learn more at

p.s. to keep the brush clean, I run it, bristles pointing down under hot water and wipe with a towel, snap the cap back on and store with bristles down. :)

J/A/S/O/N Red Elements Hydrating Night creme
Easy Ways To Turn Your Home Into a Spa

Check out these cheap alternatives to fancy, professional services

Can't afford to splurge on laser treatments or a spray tan? These gadgets will give you all of the hottest spa treatments for much, much cheaper!

See products

J/A/S/O/N products are not the hippie health food store products you may remember. (Or maybe not?)
I've been testing for the past little bit the new line that they have for anti-aging and antioxidant products.
The new hydrating night creme is soft, supple, has good slip and texture with a very light scent which is not an added perfume it's actually the natural scent of the ingredients.
With confidence I can recommend the Red elements line for you to try if you like products that are paraben free, pthalate free and petroleum free.
The line is really for all skin types, and those with sensitive skin could use it.

A little bit goes along way! Remember to use a scoop in it so you don't contaminate the jar when you get some for use. Try a qtip to pull out a small bit to massage into your face and neck.

Enjoy and learn more at

Noah's Naturals anti-aging gel serum
Your Ultimate Sephora Shopping Guide

See what products are worth the splurge

Yes, we know it's your fave beauty store, but that doesn't mean every product on the shelves is perfect. The ones on this list, however, are so check them out before your next trip to the mall.

See buys

Okay, thank goodness this sample of the Noah's Naturals anti-aging gel serum arrived just in time for me to work a very busy promotion in very harsh weather! This stuff has saved my skin from the elements in combination with the LaRoche Posay Anthelios creme!

I really enjoy the brand line Noah's Naturals because the local Walmart has a huge selection of their products, great prices on organic items and they are effective too!

This specific item, the gel serum has a texture that may need a time or two to get used to. It's a serum, so put it on first.

-apply your Noah's Naturals gel serum and allow a full 2-3 minutes to absorb into the skin
-apply your normal day/night creme
-apply your eye creme

At first, the gel serum will look a bit shiny on the face, though given the time to absorb into the skin before applying anything else, it will finish on the skin with your normal texture.

I tried it while allowing time to dry down, and I got great results and was happy.
I rushed it and put my moisturizer and foundation on over it before it was dry and the product didn't fully absorb and left me a bit shiny. Darn, so much for following directions!

I know you will like it, especially if you have crepey skin anywhere. Apply some Noah's Naturals gel serum and watch it plump up!

Heat protect'n'curl by got2b: Guardian Angel
Quiz: How Earth-Friendly Is Your Beauty Routine?

Find out if you're killing the planet with your beauty habits

Ever wonder how a little, insignificant person like you could ever do something to help the big, vast planet Earth? This quiz will give you beauty tips on how to make a difference.

Take the quiz

I love the winds of change! woot! Oh, but standing in the winds of change along with freezing slanted rain, well; let's just say it was a unique challenge.

I did get up this morning and curl my hair, wrap up some hair rolls and pin them under a large flower. Before doing all that to create a pretty darn cute style for the day, I protected my hair with the got2b Guardian Angel heat protection spray.

Simple to use, a light fragrance and protection all in one! Plus I detect a slight ability of the product to hold curl? Or at least mine looked really good, even after the commute to work; though once I got out of the car and the wind and rain along with intense high winds hit my hair, it all came down. Darn.

You can see more, learn about the amazing product ingredients and get great style tips by visiting :

I think this is an affordable staple for your hair routine. I was just getting my hair cut a few weeks ago, and my stylist Star ( over at Tempe Marketplace Arizona Hair Co.) had recommended to me a very similiar spray heat protectant for when I curl or use the straight iron. That product was $20 and Guardian Angel is under $10. Like way under ten dollars!

I know you will enjoy protecting your hair and saving money at the same time. Especially since the new spring hair styles are all about big waves in your hair from a large barrel curling iron.

Go get some at your local Walmart, Target or drugstore!

Got2B Smooth Operator: smooth, lustre and lovely
Best and Worst Acne Fighters

See which products actually kicked acne in the butt, er, face

It's a universal agreement: grown-ups shouldn't have to deal with acne! And since grown-ups get to do whatever they want, check out this list of products that are proven to clear up skin!

See products

Right now, there is a storm going through Arizona, and we have had hurricane like winds with rain today.
I've been using the sample of Smooth Operator by got 2 b for a week now and I love it! I am a faithful user of Biosilk, and it was a nice switch to move into a less "shiny gloss" look into a well, no pun intended, but a smooth lustre look.

There is a difference and I know you will enjoy it. The packaging is cute and I like the fun charm that is hanging on the bottle. It's a pump bottle, and one pump is plenty for my shoulder length hair.

I've tried it on my dry hair and on wet. I like both results and found that the product has a nice slip and texture to it along with a very light scent.

You can find it at any Target, Walmart and drugstore near you or visit the website and click on "what's new", then follow to Smooth Operator.

Christopher Drummond talks date night beauty

Look Great On Valentine’s Day...or any day! Below is a quick beauty look for you gals going out on a special date with your loved one. Even if you are not going out on a special occasion, the makeup tips/look are worth printing. Enjoy courtesy of Christopher Drummond beauty. *He is an amazing artist and you can trust his work and info! Enjoy!

The key to impressing the one you love is to keep your skin looking fresh and natural-looking, and making your lips kissably accessible. By incorporating a few tips with your existing CDB products, we can get you looking fabulous for Valentine’s Day in just a few minutes:

1. The key to healthy looking skin is an even tone all over the neck and face. Lightly dust your Veludo Velvet Foundation all over your face to give yourself a light, fresh look. Use two or three layers, if you like, and don’t worry…it won’t build up and look caked on!

Christopher’s pro tip #1: Be sure to get the foundation under the chin and where the chin and the neck meet, this way you will have uniform color from base of the neck to the top of the forehead. (Many of us have a neck and face that are two different colors. This technique will blend the two together to one uniform color.)

2. Want a “glow” in five seconds? Our Saúde Pele Radiance Booster is the perfect accessory to your makeup regime. Simply dust a SMALL AMOUNT wherever you need a little extra “lift”. Remember, a little goes a long way.

Chistopher's pro tip #2: For his celebrity clients, Christopher blends a small amount of Saude Pele into their favorite moisturizer right before he uses it. It gives a beautiful and subtle glow. He also puts it on their eyelids to brighten them up, before adding color.

3. Use bronzer. If you want to warm up your coloring the Sol Bronzer in our women’s kit is a sure fire winner. Take a small amount on the tip of your brush, and blend it into your cheekbone. It adds extra warmth to the skin without looking obvious.

Christopher’s pro tip #3: Make your bronzer “pop!” Take a very small amount of your favorite Christopher Drummond Beauty Blush (Silky Garnet, perhaps?) and add a touch of it to the apple of your cheek (the very front part of your cheek).

It adds a small amount of color, while making it look natural.

4. Focus on your Lips: Christopher had one thought in mind when choosing Ruby Slippers lip gloss for Valentine’s Day: to make your lips as kissable as possible! From the gorgeously subtle red color, to the light scent of blood orange, to the nutritious ingredients in the gloss, what’s not to love??? This is a limited edition product, so get it while you can.

Christopher’s pro tip #4: Make your lips even MORE kissable!

Step 1: Apply your nude liner on top of your lipstick. It blends better, and won’t have a noticeable line.

Step 2: Add Saúde Pele to the middle of your upper and lower lip after applying Ruby Slippers Gloss. It fills them out more!

** Simply type 'lip gloss' in the special instructions section in the checkout screen and your Ruby Slippers Lip Gloss will be automatically included with your order of our Gift Set for Women.**

If you haven't tried the brand J/A/S/O/N lately, I encourage you to do so. I received a sample of the new red elements anti-oxidant skin care line and have really enjoyed it.
The line reminds me of being a young girl shopping with my mom in the natural food stores, but now, the variety in the product line has increased as well as the retail outlets. You can get many of the products in Target, Walmart, Sprouts and some Fry's Marketplace stores.
Here's what their website said about it:
Red Elements™ Antioxidant Skin Care

JASON Red Elements™ skin care features Red Tea Extract from South Africa and Peptides to protect skin from free radical damage and maximize collagen production to promote healthier, more youthful skin.

■Copper, Zinc and Manganese tone and firm skin
■Fragrance and Paraben Free
■No Lanolin, Mineral Oil or Petroleum
Gentle Gel Cleanser
For Normal to Dry Skin

JASON Red Elements Gel Cleanser thoroughly cleanses skin to remove all traces of surface oil, pore-clogging debris, makeup, and impurities without ever drying. Helps to maximize collagen production and fight free radical damage with Red Tea, Peptides and Copper. Daily use will help encourage a healthier looking, glowing complexion.

nice...and here's what I have to say about it:
I liked the smooth textured gel and it rinsed clean, my skin felt washed but not tight and best of all, this stuff removed the L'Oreal Double Extend mascara I was wearing that gave me a day long experience of having eyelashes similiar to a Venus Flytrap plant. Stuck!

There is so much more to explore, so please take a moment and visit the website:

I'm in the middle of trying the hydrating night creme too! I'll let you know how it goes!

You & your brows: plus Anthelios SX spf 15 for Barrett Jackson
The 16 Best Brow Enhancers

These products will give you perfectly tweezed, filled-in brows

Want to see what's no. 1? Click here!

Is that you? Have you come to visit me at Barrett Jackson yet? If not, come to see the cars, the fashion and how the La Roche Posay Anthelios SX combo'd with the Thermal Spring Water is keeping me and my co-worker hydrated and ready to work.

The Anthelios cream is rich hydration in a tube. Thank goodness because creams normally come in a jar and you risk cross-contamination between products when you scoop product out to use.

The Anthelios SX is super rich, has an emollient texture and absorbs into the skin. I have found through continued use and testing of the sample that it does keep my skin hydrated under hot lights, sun, outdoor elements, stress and dehydration from not drinking enough fluids.

It's a 24 hour hydration forumla, PABA free, fragrance free and covers both UVA and UVB protection with Parsol 1789 and a patented inovative ingredient called Mexoryl SA.

I'm liking it for winter. I think as a daily summer hydrator it may be too much? Unless I've been out in the direct sun, then this could be a great skin drencher!

LaRoche-Posay and your winter skin
12 Hot New Beauty Trends You Should Try

These hairstyles and makeup looks were good enough for the People's Choice Awards red carpet, and they'll totally work for you too

We love stealing looks from the red carpet, but many of them are just too over-the-top for our every day lives. However, we found 12 trends from the People's Choice Awards that will definitely work for everything from a business meeting to a night out with friends. Check them out -- you're sure to find a few you love.

See trends

Okay, I find this to be a fun one and have for as long as I can remember used a variety of misting waters/toners to set makeup.

I recently tried this brand and found a new friend. The La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water is cooling, light and rapidly absorbs. It helps soften fine lines and I'm going to guess with continued use aid any sagging skin.

What's most important to me about my new DLF (dear little friend) is that it is going in my handbag and onto the Barrett Jackson car auction event this week in Scottsdale Arizona.

The work, the stress, the lights, the travel, the you name it: I'm going to have a wee spa spring in a can ready to use at a moments notice to keep me looking invigorated, fresh and hydrated.

Here's what the website had to say about it:
La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water is one of the only thermal spring waters to have a biological activity. Soothing, softening, anti-inflammatory with anti-free radical properties, Thermal Spring Water helps treat certain serious inflammatory skin conditions when used as a therapeutic complement. It also helps to fight skin aging and its dermatological benefits are recognized by the highest scientific and medical authorities.

J/A/S/O/N moisturizing shampoo and intense moisture treatment
Top 11 Beauty Resources

Check out the Web sites, TV and phone apps that'll make your beauty world a prettier place

You've seen the commercials: "Yep, there's an app for that." And it's true; there is a site or app for just about everything beauty-related you could ever want. But with so many to choose from, how do you know which ones are really worth your time? That's where we come in. We've found the best of the best and are sharing them with you.

Check them out

Well if the winter is treating your hair and skin like it is treating mine: you are dry! I recently received a sample of the Plumeria & Sea Kelp shampoo with Mint & Rose conditioner for hair.

What a neat treat! I love products that are paraben free and sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates free. Why? Because I'm trying to keep the cancer causing chemcials to a minimum.

What I noticed first about the products were that: the shampoo was rich and luxurious in texture and lather. Not at all like the normal " health food store aloe vera based shampoo". This felt really good; like my hair was getting clean with a nice light scent that is a natural flower scent.

The hair conditioner, is an intense moisture treatment: though did not have the traditional slip of a conditioner. It feels more like a gel in texture but: gave tremendous impartation of hydration. So, felt different yet performed better!

You can try it for yourself, pick it up at any Walmart, Target or local health food store such as Sprouts near you. If you try it, post a comment and let me know how you enjoyed it!
Remember: with a paraben free conditioner, it doubles as a great hair styling/de-frizzing solution. Just put a wee drop of product in between your palms and warm up by rubbing together. Press it into your haircurls and enjoy the detailed curls without the frizzies!

ORGANICS by Noah's Naturals : yummy coconut vanilla scrub
Find Your Age-Appropriate Skin Care Regimen

Whether you're 20, 30, 40 or 50 we've got everything you need

Remember the day you realized you were a bit too old for Bonne Bell Lip Smackers? I know it was a sad day for me; it can be tough to acknowledge that we're getting older. Along the same lines, sometimes we don't move on to the right skin care products for our current age and needs. To help, check out this guide for the right skin care products for whatever age you currently are.

Welcome to your day? Have you exfoliated yet? Are you experiencing dry itchy winter skin? I just received a sample of the Organics line by Noah's Natural in a body scrub.

There are no parabens, no petrolatums, no pthalates, no propylene glycol, no animal testing and no sodium lauryl sulfates.

Which means that there aren't any harsh chemicals to block the rich moisturizing safflower, jojoba and vitamin E oils from reaching your skin.

The raw sugar granuales are large and gentle on the skin. I recommend on rough spots such as elbows, knees and feet. In this wintery weather, put a scoop in your bath, your pedicure tub or leave next to the skin to use on hands as an extra layer of moisture.

You can find the Noah's Naturals line in Walmarts and Targets all over as well as online at :

Noah's Naturals anti-aging skin care
Quiz: Are You Wearing the Wrong Foundation?

Find out and see which formulas are really right for you

Are you tired of your foundation looking a bit "off"? It can be daunting to find the right formula (not to mention the shade!) for you, but this quiz can help.

Take the quiz

Whee! It's been a whirlwing of travel and in the middle of it all some lovely samples arrived just in time for me to test before a full week of Nissan at the marathon and Barrett Jackson car auction begin.

What I love about Noah's Naturals most is their commitment to being paraben free! The new line is an anti-aging wash, soft exfoliating scrub and a topical anti-aging gel that is not synthetic in it's base/emulsion.

I just got off the road, literally, washed, scrubbed and applied a few drops of the gel serum. Nice. Good smell, lovely texture, rinsed clean and the gel/serum smoothes on and is beginning to absorb.

Today is day one...more tomorrow on day two and I'll be sticking to this routine for the next week to give you the full report. As you know with most skincare, on first try you either like it enough to give it a chance or immediately file in the round container next to the only seat in the room.

I can tell you this far that the wash removed my makeup and mascara ( only two coats today!) and the scrub was soft and velvety. So kudos so far! Tune in tomorrow for more!

A big fatty thank you to Noah's Naturals and JASONS for sending amazing samples/testers of their organic and natural products. Goods that are paraben free! wee! I love it!
It just arrived and I'm taking them to the studio to test along with on the set of some upcoming shoots.
Thanks a billion!
Now...onto the next topic: a shopping trip to Ulta. If you haven't recently purchased some at home glycolic acid, what are you waiting for? Get your 10% at Ulta in DDF. Now is the time to use it daily because the summer sun is not as harsh. Yes, you still need to use sunscreen, but in the summer it's a higher chance of damage to your skin. Now is the time to clean it up.

Oh, speaking of clean it up, the Noahs Naturals came with a dark pigmentation serum. See! All that summer sun can be cleaned up!
Enjoy the beauty bubble and the upcoming holiday weekend!
