The 6 Beauty Products That Saved Me This Summer

Friday, August 29th, 2014

With summer winding down (major sigh), I decided to take stock of the beauty products that became my seasonal staples for looking and feeling good with minimal effort. Sunscreen’s a given, but there were a few exceptional new finds, so I thought I’d share them with you.

1. Cetaphil Restoraderm Skin Restoring Body Wash and Moisturizer

I suffer from heat-induced eczema, which means I get an itchy, red rash all over (but mostly on my legs) when my skin is dehydrated. Uncomfortable, and not a cute look. I switched to this body wash and its accompanying moisturizer, and wow, what a relief.  Both are formulated with ceramides, molecules that are naturally found in skin to help it retain moisture.

2. Sonia Kashuk Dewy Luxe Lip & Cheek Balm in Enchanted 

Some days this is the only makeup I’d wear—just on my lips—and more than one co-worker commented that the bright pop of fuchsia completely woke up my face.

 

 

3. Andis Fold N Go Ionic Dryer

I first experienced the perks of this small but powerful dryer in Puerto Rico, where my hair usually becomes a frizzy mess. I think the water had something to do with it, but my hair has never dried shinier, sleeker—or faster!— in a tropical environment. I now use this dryer at home in New York City, and it’s cut down my styling time significantly. And because it’s so compact and has a retractable cord, it doesn’t take up a ton of space in my bathroom cabinet.

 

4. Gillette Venus Embrace Sensitive 

If you read #1, you already know I have sensitive skin, and this razor helped me stay stubble-free with zero irritation. Its five blades are placed closer together so there’s less pressure on your skin.

 

5. And last but not least, eyelash extensions.

Yes, they’re a splurge but totally worth it in my opinion. Especially in the summer, because it saves you from the smudgy mess of mascara. It makes you look “done” without having to do much of anything. My lash expert of choice is Marley at Damone Roberts. She gives me that natural, “I woke up like this” look. And I did!

 

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Parents Goody Giveaway: Win a $400 Crazy Cart Ride-On from Razor

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

In the years before I learned to drive a car, the next best thing to soothe my desire for wheels was go-kart racing. While I was never fast enough to win any races with friends, it was always a thrill to test my skills on the track.

With Razor’s latest riding technology, the Crazy Cart, kids can now get their go-kart fix in the comfort of their own backyard. For ages 9 and up, it’s a new, electric ride-on that allows for driving, spinning or drifting in whatever direction you want. All you need is to pull on the drift bar to set yourself going backwards, forwards, or even diagonally.

To get your child’s motors running, Razor is giving away a Crazy Cart for ONE lucky winner. That’s a total value of $400!
