We don't typically have very dry skin, but this winter has left our normally oily skin feeling dry and scaly. We were recently introduced to Shikai Borage Lotion, and haven't been able to put it down since. Despite being incredibly moisturizing, the lotion is surprisingly light and doesn't leave behind a greasy residue. We were also pleased to find that is good for anyone that suffers from eczema, sensitivity, and other dry skin disorders.... more

We've been searching far and wide for an all-natural moisturizer that both combats oily, acne-prone skin, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. And we think we've found it. At first glance, Mychelle Pumpkin Renew Cream's ingredients (shea butter and pumpkin seed oil) sound as though they'd only add to our skin's oiliness, but the moisturizer actually balances out our skin and leaves it feeling soft and non-greasy. We especially like it for the... more

With so many expensive face creams on the market, all claiming to eliminate the effects of aging, it can get overwhelming (and costly) when it comes to choosing the right one for you. We've used Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream for years and have found that it works just as well as the more expensive brands. Sure, we still have a few laugh lines here and there, but our skin stays smooth thanks... more
We were recently looking for a new blush color to brighten up our fair complexion when we stumbled upon this NARS Blush in Orgasm. The bright, pinky-peach powder scared us a bit, but we were pleasantly surprised by the flattering and subtle glow it gave our cheeks. There's a reason why this is a very popular cheek color, as it looks good on almost any complexion, fair or not.
It's not often you really notice the soap someone has in their bathroom, but at a dinner party at a friend's house we found ourselves wanting to wash our hands a lot more than was strictly necessary just to smell the Pre de Provence soap again.

If you're a light sleeper, every little noise can keep you awake at night. For that reason, we've become quite attached to our white noise machine. We're not big on waves crashing or various nature sounds. The rushing air sound of the Marpac 980 A Sleepmate Noise Sleep Machine is very soothing and blocks out our noisy neighbors, and adjusting the tone and volume of the machine is simply a matter of twisting the... more
We're usually pretty skeptical of all those As Seen On TV products, but we were desperate to find a product that would take care of our rough feet.
