Spotlight On: Jojoba Oil

In addition to having a funny name, jojoba oil (pronounced “ho-ho-bah”) is pretty awesome. Unlike other exotic oils like argan, coconut, and olive, jojoba oil is actually a wax with a chemical composition mimics your skin’s sebum more closely than any other oil.

Spotlight On: Yes to Coconuts Eczema Relief Spray

You don’t have to spend a lot to get a lot. People (and car commercials) often say this, and sometimes it is true. Like with Yes to Coconuts Eczema Relief Spray ($9.99, Yestocarrots.com) — this is a fantastic product for the body, especially before bed. I was recently sent a sample by a PR agent, and I […]

Tried, Reviewed, Recommended: Glytone Acne Kit

In terms of growing up, I think 1997-1998 were big years for me. There were the Backstreet Boys, N*SYNC, and Britney Spears. UConn and Kentucky were the teams in the NCAA tournament. (And two of my faves). And I was in love with Neutrogena skin care at the time that featured copper peptides, which has since been […]

Beauty companies are always coming out with something new, so it takes a lot to excite me nowadays. (I guess you could call me jaded, beauty product fans). But NEOVA Reveal Exfoliator ($42.00, FutureDerm.com/Shop) is a real win.

Which Josie Maran Argan Oil Formulation is the Best?

One of my favorite derms, Leslie Baumann, M.D., once put it best: “Unlike other exotic resources such as caviar and marine algae, argan oil offers the best of both worlds…It’s an anti-ager and it’s eco-friendly.”  Dubbed “the gold of Morocco,” argan oil contains essential fatty acids (linoleic and oleic acids) and antioxidant polyphenols. An Antioxidant That Is as Good […]
