Top Skincare Picks of the Moment

The skincare products I currently can't live without are all new to me in 2014 and now have become staples in my daily routine. Favorite Skincare

  • Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Eye Cream with Retinol ($20.99) A great preventative my dermatologist recommended... not sure that it works but I haven't needed Botox yet and I'm going to be 36 very soon.
  • SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense (Professional Use Only) Sunscreen breaks me out easily so I use this to combat that on my face & decollete.
  • Tatcha PURE Cleansing Oil ($48) By far the best cleansing oil I've ever tried.  It is pricey but I got it last year in December & still using it!
  • Clinique Pore Refining Stay Matte Moisturizer ($38.50) The ONLY moisturizer that I've continued to use regularly because it hydrates while keeping me matte.
  • Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster ($30) I don't recommend it for day time because it does cause me to get oilier quicker but I mix it with my moisturizer at night a few times per week and it keeps a really natural & subtle glow.

What's your 'Can't live without skincare'? I am always looking for the next amazing thing!


So although I usually review beauty and hair products, after seeing so many photos of bridesmaids and models with that awful white ring of deodorant under their arms magnified by the flash I decided to try a few alternative deodorants to see which ones kept me dry and unlike so many drugstore brands that claim they dry clear or are ‘little black dress approved’, actually did dry clear. The WINNER is Kiehl’s Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant, aptly named. It is completely unscented, suited for sensitive skins and is NOT tested on animals. The other nice thing is they sell it in 2 sizes so I keep the larger one at home and since I travel a lot I have the smaller, 1.7oz tube in my carry-on bag. You can buy it at Neiman Marcus, Saks and Kiehl’s stores for $12 to $17. It may seem a little expensive for deodorant but I assure you, one container will last you 4 months or more and the cool thing is it does last 24 hours!
