I absolutely love getting new makeup. Trying the different colors and products, choosing a favorite, bringing it home and opening that pretty new package. It's even better when I get something I haven't tried before. Like makeup from CIRCA Beauty, a cruelty free makeup line that's affordable, long wearing, trendy, Read more
With increasing frequency, I'm finding that I'm getting pitched more often to review sunscreen pills and drinks. I am a true skeptic when it comes to replacing what I know already works (topical sunscreen), and has worked for YEARS, with something so new that claims the same benefits. So Read more
St. Ives recently sent me their continous spray lotion in Naturaly Indulgent Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract and the new Smooth & Glow Apricot Hydration Lotion. This is the first time I've ever tried a spray lotion and wasn't sure what to expect. Will it be similar to spray Read more
Tanned legs help to give the appearance of slim, flawless legs. There's nothing I love more, than to bare my legs in my favorite dress once they have a little bit of color to them. To kick off Summer, we've partnered with Sexy Stems Firming Self Tanner to give away Read more
By now, we all know...or should know the health and beauty benefits of drinking water. Approximately 50 to 70% of our body mass is made up of water so it is important to replenish our bodies with the water that we lose on a daily basis.

All of us have a man in our lives that could fall victim to prostate cancer. Our dads, our sons, our husbands, boyfriends, brothers, friends, co-workers… During the summer my cousin was diagnosed with testicular cancer, he is in his mid-twenties, proving that cancer doesn’t discern by age.
method sent us their Designed for Good gel hand wash (which we always need plenty of in this house) complete with a mustache design and stickers. While the stickers were meant to be placed on the bottle, I felt it would be a good way to showcase my son’s personalities if they wore them and posed.

So, I pull up to the mansion to hob-nob with the Hollywood elite. I’m supposed to be dressed in “Hollywood Chic” but no real clue what that means, so I snub the powers-that-be and wear flip-flips with a suit. And I still look better than most people.

Nivea For Men launches in Los Angeles with this Golden Globes pre-party. It’s an interesting concept, but from all my reading I figured out the product launch (we can thank Old Spice and all their press and messaging): men don’t buy products, but their wives and girlfriends DO buy products at the drugstore and grocery store.

Now, I don’t think I’m their market. I’m metro, my shower is filled with Lush body gels (about 7 bottles), Lush shampoos plus other shampoos (10 – it’s about shampoo rotations), and I’m using my Clarisonic with Skinceuticals. Yep, I smell like cinnamon or grass or honey on a daily basis.

This reader question comes from the A Girl’s Gotta Spa! Facebook fan page. And better yet, from a guy and one who is local here in Northeast PA! I love that he wasn’t shy to publicly ask his questions.
“Kind of embarrassing, but I’m a man and my hands look like they’re aging about 10-15 years faster than I am. How do I correct this or at least slow it down? And what is the secret to getting rid of blackheads on the nose? Embarrassing, yes. In real life, yes. Please help! Long time reader, first time poster.. you’re the bestestest! –Chris, Scranton, PA”
In this segment of A Girl’s Gotta Spa! the men’s grooming edition, I review products from Grant for Men from Elizabeth Grant. Not only did I give them a try, but my new little hottie did as well. Hear what we both thought of these men’s skin care products:
