I recently spent some quality time hanging out at an amazing house in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan checking out some awesome products with some of NYC’s most fabulous bloggers. Complete with an indoor pool, this house was truly an urban oasis in the concrete jungle we know as New York.
Aside from meeting some really compelling people, I got my hair done by Caravan Stylist Studio, checked out the cutting edge Velvet Eyewear line and got a true feel for Lifetherapy’s mood-changing body creams, lotions and scrubs. I love how Lifetherapy allows you to choose your mood just by choosing a scent. No matter which you choose, all of their scents will help you escape into a relaxing, happy place.
Many thanks to TechStyle NYC for the invite. It was good vibes all around and truly one of the highlights of my summer.
Last Friday afternoon Rituals Cosmetics unexpectedly made my day. I was halfway through what ended up being a 13 hour work day and was taking a coffee break at a nearby Starbucks. After getting my coffee, I walked by two girls giving out full sized bottles of Rituals Zensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom foaming shower gel. It was almost as if they knew that I was short on body wash and needed an additional pick-me-up on top of the hot coffee I was carrying.
With Thanksgiving less than a week away, I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks to Rituals Cosmetics. I absolutely love the smell and foaming sensation of this body wash. It’s amazing the way it makes my shower smell like a spa and how the gel changes into foam the moment is touches water. Thanks again Rituals for proving to me once again that NYC is always full of surprises!
No matter what your style, the first step toward any amazing look is soft silky skin. That being said, I’ve long been a fan of Dove and their many beauty breakthroughs. Ever since I discovered Dove Body Wash as a kid, I’ve loved how their body washes, shampoos and body lotions add moisture to skin without making it greasy. It’s always been my favorite body wash to use after a long day at the beach or the pool because of the way it renews my skin’s moisture after sitting in the sun.
Since every great beauty routine starts in the shower, Dove recently unveiled the One Shower Challenge at the Emmys in celebration of the latest developments in their body wash. No longer do women have to choose between a body wash that’s gentle on skin and a great lather. The new Dove Body Wash has broken this cycle providing women with both the mild cleansing their skin needs and a rich, luxurious lather. The new Dove Body Washes feature an advanced formula that combines the brand’s mildest cleansers with NutriumMoisture® technology, offering 10 times more nourishment.
Socialites are renowned fashionistas known to spend hours in search of the perfect outfit. Being an Aspiring Socialite, I’m extremely picky about what I wear. However, the products you use to wash your body are just as important as the fashions that go on it. As a strict vegetarian, I’m no stranger to the organic and vegan lifestyles. So when I came across Dr. Woods Pure Peppermint Castile Soap, I immediately replaced my body wash with Dr. Woods for its natural eco-friendly qualities.
From the first time I used it, I noticed an instant difference in my skin. Organic really does make a difference because as soon as I made the switch, my skin felt so much softer. But, Dr. Woods isn’t just a body wash. It’s also an excellent face wash (natural products are great for sensitive and/or acne-prone skin). It can also be used as a shampoo, house cleaner, and even a laundry detergent. Its uses make it perfect to bring along on vacation. Lightening the load of the many beauty products you are bound to travel with.
I’m not usually a fan of bars of soap. I’m really more of a body wash person. But, Dr. Woods Red Currant Clove Raw Shea Butter Soap is great for skin exfoliation. This is one of the first solid soaps I’ve used in a while. Try Dr. Woods for yourself.
