Doucce Cosmetics at Gloss48!

Press SampleI love when I have the opportunity to introduce you to a new brand that is truly incredible! Doucce is an indie brand that’s being featured on Gloss48 this week!

I love how Gloss48 says “get your head out of the gutter”.  The brand name is pronounced Doo-say, so let’s get that straight!  The product line was born in the fine city of New York, and I was happy to see a lot of “made in the USA” stamped onto these gleaming cosmetic cases.  If you’re already in love with what you see, Click HERE to visit Gloss48 to view these steals!  If you want to see gorgeous photos, swatches, and reviews of these products keep reading!

Black Friday And Cyber Monday Come Early!

I’ve never been one to shop in stores on Black Friday.  The idea of being trampled to death over a big screen TV doesn’t appeal.  I’m more of an online shopper anyway (duh) so I usually take advantage of the Cyber Monday deals.  Lately retailers have been under fire for opening earlier and earlier for Black Friday (many even ruining Thanksgiving for their employees).  So this year, many are starting to offer their best deals NOW.

Venox Serum Review, Beverly Hills MD

Press SampleI recently had the opportunity to sample Venox Anti-Aging Serum from Beverly Hills MD Cosmeceuticals.  I am such a skin care snob, and haven’t sampled much these days for you, my dear readers.  It’s just that I’ve had some really bad experiences in my eight years of beauty blogging with skin care testing. For the past year my skin has been so happy and clear, I’ve been afraid to mess with it! [Read more…]

Aerin Rose Balm

Press SampleFirst of all, before you panic, I want you to know that Aerin Beauty Rose Balm doesn’t smell like a blooming garden of roses.  It does, however, harness the moisturizing power of ingredients extracted from roses.

Aerin Rose Balm is designed for moisturizing VERY dry skin anywhere on the body, so it’s great to have on hand this time of year.  Lips, hands, elbows, knees… this product is the ultimate multi-tasker.  It’s easy to apply, but keep in mind that it’s pressed firmly like a balm into the jar, and only a very little amount is needed for each application.

Aerin Rose Balm comes housed in a substantial glass jar with a gleaming golden lid.  It’s perfect for perching on a vanity of dresser, as the look of the packaging almost works as a household accessory, it’s so gorgeous.  This product is great for sensitive skin, and delivers an overall luxe experienece.

Retail price is $58.

Click HERE to check out AERIN. AERIN Beauty is also available at fine retailers: Nordstrom.com, NeimanMarcus.com, Selfridges.com and BergdorfGoodman.com.
