Feeling Golden with Minerva Gold Collagen

I happened upon Minerva’s Gold Collagen when visiting my local beauty supply store aka my hangout as I’m there so often purchasing products I don’t need more often than not.

Lifecell Launch at the London Hotel

I had a blast at the launch of amazing skincare line, Lifecell’s launch of their new retail collection. This event was held at the luxurious Vivienne Westwood penthouse suite of the super swanky London Hotel. First of all, I LOVE Lifecell’s products, especially the All-in-one anti-aging cooling under eye treatment. Even this insomniac blogger swears by it. I apply it every night and wake up looking rested and restored.

Nuts for Nerium

Being that I got my start in consumer journalism, I’m always skeptical of  brand partner companies, but so many friends were raving about it, from successful actor friends, friends plugged into the beauty world, to retirees. I tried their simple system of application for the creams morning and night and the first time I ever applied it, I felt my skin tighten and it felt, really supple.   I will say that I liked the white day cream more than the gritty beige night cream, but the results were way better with the night cream. Nerium contains the NAE-8® extract, as […]
