My Top Five Beauty Products From Whole Foods

The only department in Whole Foods that I normally skip is the beauty department. It's true.

5 Beauty Must-Haves for a DIY Pedicure

DIY-pedicureI hope you aren’t one of those people who neglects their feet all winter long simply because you can hide them in your socks. (You’re not, right?) Nothing is worse than letting your heels dry up and crack (and snag on the flannel sheets…or worse, your favorite guy) and letting the polish on your toes flake and chip.  I found 5 products that are affordable and easy to use to keep your feet silky and smooth all season long so that by the time spring rolls around, your feet are sandal ready.

1. Ms. Pedicure Smooth Talker: Banish scaly skin on heels and soles with this 2-in-1 callus reducer that takes aim at thick, rough skin with a few easy strokes! There is a coarse side to exfoliate and a fine side for smoothing. Each metal piece detaches from the handle so that you can empty the debris right into the trashcan and easily clean it with no mess.

Review: Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes

ponds_wet_cleansing_towelettesI have had a long love hate relationship with liquid makeup removers. I’ve tried so many, been disappointed by the greasy oil slick they left behind went on to try others…fell in love with Korres Jasmine Makeup Remover, but couldn’t afford the $22 pricetag of late and with how I have been traveling over the last few months, liquid just isn’t feasible. So when I was approached to try Pond’s Wet Cleansing Towelettes, my interest was piqued by the thought of a simple towelette to remove my makeup… Read more
