As The Beauty Girl, I never turn myself off. There’s no watching the minutes tick down (unless it’s waiting for my hubby to walk in the door) to some magical number like 5pm so I can return to freedom. My radar is up 24/7…when I’m with friends, walking down the street, shopping Whole Foods…you name it. While a large chunk of my beauty expertise comes from my relationships with PR firms, experience testing products, interviewing derms, meeting makeup artists and so forth, I have to give credit for this post to my best friend Molly. She’s a foodie who cares about what goes on and in her body. Passionate about healthy living (if it weren’t for Molly I’d still be eating Skippy instead of the natural equivalent), Molly did some research and created a natural skincare regimen that’s become my new favorite way to cleanse my face. I discovered her secret when I stayed with her during a visit to my old stomping ground NYC, and it’s too good to not pass on.

In my latest TV segment, I featured my sunblock picks for summer. Here’s your chance to win one of my favorites — Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Eye Contour Care SPF 30 ($28). If you’ve ever sweat while wearing sunblock, you know the sting that can occur in your eyes. Clarins solved that problem when they developed this non-irritating formula. Made with plant-based extracts, it goes on as luxuriously as a moisturizer and offers anti-wrinkle benefits.3 are up for grabs!

Freebies I gifted all the guests at The Beauty Girl Baby Shower Party.
I met a fantastic group of women at Chicago’s Hub 51, where they gathered to celebrate the upcoming arrival of their friend/co-worker’s baby. I heard through the grapevine that mom-to-be Kim is interested in natural beauty. So, during this Beauty Girl party, I shared my favorite natural beauty tips and products (Ava Anderson skincare) as well as loads of other secrets that the women ate up…along with a fabulously decorated cake.
A cute pic of all the shower-goers with guest-of-honor Kim front and center.
If you’re a dedicated reader, you already know I love giveaways. For this event, I worked off the wellness theme and gifted all the guests a swag bag of my must-have products for summer. Everyone left with 1. A The Beauty Girl tank top to keep them cool on hot days 2. A gift certificate for a complimentary mind body class such as core fusion and yoga at Exhale Spa as well as 25% off a spa therapy. 3. A full-size bottle of Vaseline lotion, which comes in a variety of wonderful formulas, to keep skin soft, hydrated and looking great in summer dresses.
That’s me with Kim, who is just weeks aways from welcoming her baby!

During my days in NYC as a staff beauty editor, rubbing elbows with celebrities (think High Tea with SJP to kick off the launch of her scent Lovely, a behind-the-scenes interview with Carmen Electra and a Q&A with Gwen Stefani about her Harajuku Lovers fragrance) was part of the job.
That’s me, back in my 20s, with Courteney Cox at the Kinerase event.
One of my most memorable meet and greets was during an event with Courteney Cox. She had become the face of the somewhat unknown brand Kinerase, a line dedicated to the plant-based antioxidant kinetin. After a brief introduction to the formula, each of us beauty editors had a short session with Courteney. She was sweet and soft spoken, but what really stuck out was that she had the most radiant skin. I had tried the moisturizer for the first time only days before, and I could see why Courteney was such a fan. It was gentle and hydrating, and I loved how it made my skin feel. Since then, Kinerase (Facebook.com/Kinerase; Twitter.com/KineraseBrand) has been a brand that rolls off my tongue whenever friends, readers or guests at The Beauty Girl Parties ask for recommendations.Thus, I’m so excited to offer 5 people the chance to win the brand’s latest launch — Kinerase Daily Defense SPF 30. This $135 formula is an all-in-one moisturizer, anti-ager and sunblock. It’s available in a lotion or cream, so I want you to tell me which one you want. To enter this contest, comment on the post, follow me on twitter (twitter.com/NPTheBeautyGirl) and RT this message. Don’t forget to tell me which texture, the cream or lotion, you prefer!
