Kiehl’s gets kudos for being such a charitable company. Their latest project, which goes until April 15th, focuses on funding nationwide public school science education. Kiehl’s is donating up to $50,000 from the sales of their new Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate to DonorsChoose.org. What gives this initiative a twist is that Kiehl’s has included a special sleeve in a limited quantity of the product cartons (sort of like a “golden ticket”) that has a code printed on the inside. The code is worth $50. If you end up buying one of the cartons that has this $50 voucher code, you can go online here
, input the code and donate $50 of Kiehl’s money to the classroom of your choice. It’s a win, win for all!
Here’s the link to purchase tickets! http://springbestbeautybuysformoms2013.eventbrite.com/

I’m honored to have been featured in The New York Times
. I was included in a story about the trend of personal beauty shoppers in last week’s Thursday Styles
section. Here’s a snippet!
Having an 18 month old and another on the way (I’m due May 11th!), I feel like I’ve been pregnant for the past two years. That said, I’m very selective with what I put on my skin. Clarins is a brand that I feel confident using because they’re devoted to working with plant extracts to create effective formulas. One of my new favorites is their Double Serum. It just launched in February but is 27 years in the making. Researchers had 200 different plant extracts at their fingertips and chose the 20 most powerful that work together to hydrate, protect and strengthen the skin. Green banana, burdock, kiwi, arnica and quinoa are some that made the cut. One pump distributes enough product for the entire face, and I love how the serum absorbs right in. Skin won’t feel tacky or wet — you can immediately follow with makeup or layer with a moisturizer or sunblock. Plus, its faint floral aroma is so soothing, I find myself going back for second and third sniffs. Or, maybe I should chalk that up to another weird pregnancy craving.

Here’s a dry skin remedy that will cost you less than $10 and works in less than two weeks – Curel Skin Nourishing Lotion ($7.99). My intern Elizabeth wanted to fix her rough patches, so we decided she should give this shea butter-based product a try. Now she can’t wait for the weather to warm up so she can show off her legs. “My overall skin texture is smoother to my touch, and specifically the areas of dry skin (my elbows and knees) visibly appear less cracked and healthier.” She also found that the formula is gentle enough to use on her face. “I applied a light layer on my face, paying particular attention to the skin above my eyebrows and around my mouth. Within a day, my itchy skin in these areas was gone, and I saw a huge difference in the appearance of my skin,” she said. Another deal breaker is that the lotion doesn’t leave behind a sticky residue or make skin feel greasy. This drugstore buy has earned itself The Beauty Girl stamp of approval.
Bronzers and self tanners are great for giving the appearance of a sun-kissed face, but they don’t actually work to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. We recently received a sample of Rena Revivo’s Spa De Soleil’s Instant Glow
moisturizer ($69.99). Our first time hearing about the product, we didn’t know what to expect. The formula is said to reduce discoloration and soften your skin’s texture with a combination of vitamins, organic oils and amino acids.
I applied the Instant Glow to my face and neck in the morning before makeup. It’s a creamy moisturizer and has a subtle sweet smell. For best results, suggested use is a minimum of six weeks. I’m in my fourth week and already my face is softer and I feel like I’m needing less makeup to feel more confident about my complexion. With summer approaching, sheer skin with minimal makeup is the goal. So far, the Instant Glow is proving to be the best product to get me there.
