Divine Eyes


L’Occitane Divine Eyes Serum has saved me from the Time-Zone-Change-Puffy-Eye-Zombie-Look on many occasions.

CLINIQUE Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliator

I’m on a never ending quest to have J-Lo skin– not only does it look like she’s permanently lit from within, she also looks like she’s on perma-vacation.

Murad Hydrating Toner

PW rule of thumb: wherever a PW goes, so must a toner, too. But make it good, PWs. Murad’s Hydrating Toner is good for whatever climate you might find yourself in.

King of Sin

You’re about to fall in love with your hotel shower. (Ryan Reynolds not included, sorry.) Picture this: All natural solid cocoa and shea butter bar- fresh avocado, banana and oatmeal. Rub it all over under hot water, and then…. the moisture stays on your skin!

Alpha Beta Glow Pads

Please let me introduce my main man, Dr. Dennis Gross. Ladies, trust me when I say you should pack some of his Alpha Beta Glow Pads in your overnight bag for the perfect exfoliating/anti-aging/sun-kissed glow. Just wipe and toss. Bam- you were just skiing in the Alps. You were? Jealous. Next time take Dennis AND me with you. 🙂

Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Wipes

Cleansing Wipes have become more boring than watching Anna Karenina. On a loop. Enter Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Wipes, which have reinvented the concept for the more discerning gal on the go.

Drink Up Intensive (Origins)

I’m still ridiculously obsessed with sleeping facials/masks. I mean, think about it. You put the mask on, go to sleep, wake up, give your face a light rinse and boom, incredibly hydrated, luminous skin.

Mask of Magnaminty

A minty miracle mask from Lush Cosmetics. Mask of Magnaminty (say THAT 5 times fast!) can be used not only on your face, but also on your neck, back, and chest, to deep clean, exfoliate and get all the ick out.

Immortelle Cream Mask

I will literally put ANYTHING that L’Occitane puts out in this Immortelle line (full disclosure– while I THINK it’s a flower for anti-aging, mama don’t know, mama don’t care– this shizz is GOOOOD). The Immortelle Face Mask is definitely not cheap, at $62, but it’s a must for any dry or flaky gals, and is heavenly for treating the skin during the rough winter months.


Ever had one of those pimples that engulfed your entire face? One that basically moved in and took over your entire life? Well, I don’t break out often, but when I do, that’s the situation, and I need to call in the big guns. Tarte Amazonian Clay Double Detox will zap whatever monstrosity has claimed it’s own zip code on my face, plus make my skin look clearer and toned. Bam, you win again, Tarte!
