Review: CoverGirl and Olay Simply Ageless Foundation

It’s my second video review here on A Girl’s Gotta Spa! and for this review I decided to share with you my love for CoverGirl and Olay Simply Ageless Foundation.

Indulge Your Inner Rocker or Romantic on Valentine’s Day

This morning I was treated to a morning of fragrance and beauty at the Victoria’s Secret Valentine’s Beauty Preview and Gifting Suite at the Four Season’s hotel in San Francisco. The elegant suite was strewn with gorgeous spring flowers and several of Victoria Secret’s beauty collections. Before today I wasn’t too familiar with Victoria Secret’s beauty line-up. I must admit I was impressed at the variety of products, quality and well-designed packaging. I will be revealing more fab finds from this go-to resource for beauty and fragrance in the upcoming weeks.

Today I will be sharing a few of my favorite picks for Valentine’s gifting. I am always out scouting interesting and fun new products and here are four picks for Valentine’s Day.

All girls have their naughty and nice sides. Perhaps it depends on the day, the occasion or the event? These beauty collections from Victoria’s Secret speak to the rebel and romantic in all of us. Love Rocks pays tribute to your inner wild at heart, while the Tease for Two appeals to a softer and sweeter side. Both are perfectly appropriate for gifting or receiving.  Read more

Review: Marie Louise Cosmetics Restoration Clear Gel

exfoliating_gelThis winter is doing a number on my skin, both my body and face. And thanks to Punxsutawney Phil (really when has he ever NOT seen his shadow?!), 6 more weeks of winter means fighting off flaky skin. I love winter for the beautiful snowfall, but I hate it for the chaos it wreaks on my skin.

Marie Louise Cosmetics sent me their Restoration Clear Gel, which is a unique exfoliating gel, that gently removes dead skin cells. I say unique because of what happens once you apply this gel to your face and massage it.  Read more

Lance Bass Like You Have Never Seen Him Before

lance_bass_beforeExhibit A: Lance Bass, former ‘NSync band member, all around nice guy. Lance was always good looking. I never imagined he could actually take it to the next level and look smokin hot. And I mean super uber smokin hot. But with the help of makeup artist Roberto Morelli, talented hairstylist (and my friend, full disclosure there!) Davide Torchio along with skillful photographer Mike Ruiz and stylist Eric Berg…Lance was transformed into a man I can honestly say drips sensuality. Holy smokes my friends. Holy freakin smokes.  Read more
