Is your mouth on your side?
Poor oral health affects aspects of your life that you may not expect. While improper oral health practices deeply affect the health of your mouth, you may Read more
I know that this may sound somewhat contradictory, but I love wearing makeup that I can't really feel.
I like knowing that it's there on my skin, but do not want to be reminded that it's actually sitting on my skin throughout the day.
This is why I love wearing Susan Read more
Finding makeup that contains sunscreen, but does not leave my skin looking gray and ashy, has always been a challenge for me. I'm sure it has been a challenge for a lot of women of color, too.
I love and want to take care of my skin by making sure Read more
During the coldest winter months I am in a constant battle with dry flaking lips. I’ve tried several lip balms and lip treatments and many of them only protect the surface and don’t get to the heart of the problem, which is dry peeling skin.
Smashbox’s Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($16 at Sephora) is one lip treatment that has been effective in my battle against dry chapped lips. This lip therapy has a subtle sweet honey flavor. It is colorless, but does add a pretty transparent sheen. The honey helps to soften and moisturize while the Vitamin E and shea butter help to nourish the skin. It is also packed full of antioxidants, vitamins A, C & E as well as shea butter, jojoba and avocado oils. Chamomile and aloe aid in soothing.Â Read more
It never gets old seeing your name in a magazine. I did cartwheels this morning when I got the sneak peek of the page myself and fellow friends (and beauty bloggers) are mentioned on regarding Best Bubble Baths. This issue of Woman’s World comes out on Monday February 15th. Why not pick up a copy and say, “Hey! I know that girl!”
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. Sure, I’m only 19–but you are never too young to start taking care of your skin! So I’m loving the inclusion of Olay Regenerist Serum in this foundation. You can find it at www.CoverGirl.com
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.Â Read more
