SkinCeuticals Promo Code

There is a serum I've been using for about two months now that I'm absolutely obsessed with, and I'm telling you with 100% certainty-- is has improved my skin. No joke, this is the BEST product I've ever used!

It's the Phloretin CF serum from SkinCeuticals. I started using it last month after learning that gorgeous reality star Emily Maynard uses it. (Click here to see all her beauty go-to's.)  Her skin is absolutely flawless, so I immediately ordered nearly every product she uses.

When I started using the Phloretin CF serum, I noticed right away my skin was smoother. But within just a few days, it was tighter and firmer. No joke--I was at the gym (sans make-up) and when I looked in the mirror, I thought, "Wow, my forehead is so smooth looking!" Truly this serum has improved my fine lines, diminished age spots, tightened and firmed my skin and made it look healthier overall. I'm in love and use it twice a day. (I apply it first before any of my other eye creams, moisturizers, etc.)

TODAY ONLY, you can get 20% off the serum (which is $155), from  Just click HERE to order. You'll need to put the product in your shopping bag before it applies the discount. (If that doesn't work, e-mail me at and I'll forward you the e-mail with the link.) You should sign up for e-mails because they have awesome deals all the time.

I know, I know, this is an pricey product, but as I always say, your face is the first thing people notice, so isn't it worth it?? 

Note: I'm not receiving anything for this post, I just love this product that much. You will NOT be disappointed.

Good luck and keep looking beautiful!

Kiehl's Promo Code

Great news! Kiehl's is having their Friends & Family sale, which means you can get 20% off your entire order. You can shop online and enter code "Family" at checkout, or show them the e-mail in-store. (I would recommend signing up for their e-mails anyway.)

I've been using several Kiehl's products for years, and here are some of my faves:

  • Powerful-Strength Line Reducing Concentrate- This product is amazing. I use it after washing my face at night. It tingles a little bit at first, but you'll immediately notice how smooth your face looks (and feels!) and how it softens fine lines. You can use it alone or under a moisturizer. $56 (The reviews online are equally as glowing.)
  • Facial Fuel Eye De-Puffer- This is a staple for me every morning when I seem to always wake up with bags and puffy eyes. I keep it in the fridge and apply to my under eyes first thing in the morning. I love how cooling it feels. $20
  • Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate- I've probably gone through five bottles of this stuff. It's a wonderful eye cream that really does help with dark circles. I use it in the mornings and love how I can feel it working instantly. ($41)
Also, keep in mind that you get rewarded for recycling Kiehl's products, so save those empty bottles!

Good luck and keep looking beautiful!

Philosophy Friends & Family Sale!

It is the best time of the year. Philosophy is having their Friends & Family sale, which means 33% off everything! I just stocked up and got $50 off and free shipping. Score!

Two of the products I'm most excited to try are the Total Matteness pore-erasing serum ($40) and the Total Matteness pore-minimizing cleanser + mask ($25). All of the beauty magazines rave about these, saying if you have large pores and/or get shiny in the summer, these are must-haves. I'll let you know how they work!

Philosophy is also known for having really lovely fragrances. My favorite is the Inner Grace lotion, which is perfectly refreshing for summer.

The Friends & Family sale runs through 6/7.

Good luck and keep looking beautiful!

Review: Kryolan Makeup

As we get closer to summer, I'm always searching for ways to change up my beauty routine. That often means new makeup colors, and especially this season, the brighter the better.

Recently I had the chance to try out makeup from a company called Kryolan. Kryolan has been supplying the film, theater and television industries for years, which makes it one of top makeup companies in the world.

Here I'm wearing their new Lip N' Cheek product, which can work as either a lip gloss or a blush. (I'm using it as a blush.) I'm also wearing their High Gloss lip gloss is the color "Heartbreaker." It's a super fun, bubble gum pink color.

I love how girly and fun these colors are! The Lip N' Cheek gives that perfect, flushed look. Check out my full review on The Examiner HERE.

Right know, Kryolan can only be found in San Francisco and Chicago. In my review, you'll find the address to the Chicago store.

Good luck and keep looking beautiful!

20% off Clarisonic brushes and more at

One of my favorite go-to skin care sites is having a great sale right now! In honor of Mother's Day, is offering 20% when you enter code: 4MOM

If you've been thinking about getting a more expensive product, such as a Clarisonic brush, this is the perfect time to do it. I just put a Clarisonic Mia in my shopping cart to make sure the code applies, and it does. With the discount and free shipping, the brush is only $95. That's a HUGE deal! Having a Clarisonic is a must for removing tons of dirt and make-up, which also helps your products sink in deeper to your freshly exfoliated face.

And look at how darling this lavender color is. Your mom will love it.


Good luck and keep looking beautiful!

Gorgeous Emily Maynard shares skincare tips

Courtesy: Emily
I was SO excited recently when I discovered that my girl crush, reality star and single mom Emily Maynard, posted on her blog about her daily skincare routine. And I'm not talking a few tips here and there, she posted everything she uses morning and night. It's awesome.

A girlfriend and I were chatting last night about how we've already purchased most of what Emily recommends, because us fair-skinned gals without much pigment need to stick together.

Check out my Examiner article for all the deets on what she uses.

Good luck and keep looking beautiful!

Exhale Spa New York City

I don't know about you, but my skin is looking awful this winter. From dryness, to breakouts and dullness, I'm definitely in need of some TLC.

Luckily, I received an e-mail this morning from Exhale Spa that they are having an awesome deal right now: for $299 you can get three True facials, three Fusion massages, three 30-minute acupuncture sessions or any combo you choose. You also receive a complimentary mind/body class, which I hear is amazing.

This is a great deal, because normally three True 60-minute facials would cost you $435!

As I've said before, Exhale Chicago was one of my favorite places to get a facial. I haven't been to any of their New York locations before, but I'm excited to get my True facial on tomorrow at their Central Park location.

Click HERE for the deal. This expires tomorrow (January 31st) and the therapies and class must be used by June 30, 2013. I received this offer from the NYC e-mail, so I would double check that it's good in Chicago too.

Good luck and keep looking beautiful!

Welcome to 2013! After a super busy 2012, I'm ready to get back to blogging about my favorite skin care products. Thanks for joining me!

One of my favorite websites to grab all my skincare goodies is Have you heard of it? It's awesome. You can find all the best products for the face, hair and body. The best part is that they often offer free shipping and 20% off orders! Right now, just enter code NY20 to get the 20% off and there's free shipping when you spend $49.

I just stocked up on some Peter Thomas Roth products which really are amazing. I got the Laser-Free Resurfacer which is a serum that helps repair damaged skin and the UnWrinkle Eye Cream which helps with fine lines and crow's feet. They both have gotten fantastic reviews. As an extra bonus, the SkinStore sent me a free sample of Peter Thomas Roth's Un-Wrinkle Night Cream and also a moisturizing lotion from Replenix.

I'm also intrigued to try Peter Thomas Roth's Lashes to Die for. It's an eyelash treatment that helps make lashes thicker and longer. Has anyone tried it? I've noticed my lashes are getting weaker and less thick as I get older.

I'll let you know what I think about all of these products in future posts. Meantime, good luck and keep looking beautiful!
