Juice Beauty Makes Earth Day Everyday

What’s great about the world we live in today are the options we have when it comes to things like beauty. For many years, there were only a few selections to make when it came to shampoos or mascaras but not anymore. And that is certainly the case when it comes to the cateogry of products that use natural or organic ingredients. There are almost too many to choose from, in my opinion. So that’s whyJuice-Beauty-Organic-Facial-Wash-&-Concentrate we’re glad we do what we do and help you get through it all to see what’s worth it and what’s not. JUICE BEAUTY has been “doing” organic for many years and all of their products use up to 95% certified organic ingredients. Here are two new ones we are digging at the moment:


Organic Facial Wash ($22/4oz) – contains organic grapes and apple juices, sunflower oil, essential fatty acids, honey and helichrysum (for its anti-bacterial and anti-acne properties) and carrot seed. It has a strong, but delightful, herb smell. If you are sensitive to some ingredients, do a spot test before using this one. Remember, natural or organic products can be a little more harsh than what you are used to.


Organic Facial Moisture Concentrate ($36/1oz) -  concentrating the ingredients of organic cranberry, grapeseed, sunflower and jojoba oils give skin a boost of these ingredients’ benefits. Both @

Apply It Quickly With Something New From Clinique

Clinique-Quick-Blush Here’s a fun new way to put on blush from CLINIQUE. Their new Quick Blush ($21.50 @ puts the color inside the cap. How does it work then? While it’s closed, twist the base one way and the cap the other. Lift the cap off and there’s some of the colored powder on the tips of the brush bristles! Be sure to give the brush a tap-tap before applying to get the excess off. Happy blushing!

Benefit Knows What Makes A Good Liner

Benefit-BADgal-liner I’m really loving the BENEFIT line right now. I’ve always been hit or miss with the line and the past two products have both been hits! One I am telling anyone who will listen about is their BADgal Extra Black Waterproof Eye Pencil ($20 @ You know the part inside your bottom lid that you can run color along and it’s gone within 2 minutes? Since this one is waterproof, it stays put! And on the other side of the pencil is a smudger to if you choose to do your whole eye with the liner, it won’t creep down your face during that sad, sad movie.

Welcome to the Jungle ...

Paul-Mitchell-Super-Skinny-Serum-2 Trophy Have you ever used a product when the more you use it, the more you like it? This is the case with PAUL MITCHELL’s Super Skinny Serum. We featured this on the site back in Dec 07 and declared our love for it then but I’m taking it one step further and putting it in our Hall of Fame. Since I get to test out so many products, I have to say this is the best hair straightener/stylers/defrizzers I have ever used. Better than the, dare I say it, the Living Proof products we recently featured on the site that are made just for frizzies. So give a warm and hardy round of applause … Welcome to the Hall of Fame Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum!

Essie Moves It Out Quickly

I really didn’t know what to expect from the new Naturally Clean nail care line from ESSIE, specifically the nail polish remover. With the green colors on the packaging, could they have created a product using green ingredients? And still be a good nail polish remover?Essie-Clean-Purifying-Nail-Polish-Remover Well I can report back to you that this Purifying Nail Polish Remover is really frikkin’ good! The 6 products in the collection use the power of botanicals, glycerin and emolients to clean, sanitize and yup, even remove nail polish. I’m pretty amazed! Not only does this remover take away your old polish but it does it quicker and easier than any polish remover I have ever used. It also contains eucalyptus oil and antioxidants so it’s doesn’t seem as harsh on nails as other removers. I have some of the other products from the collection on hand (no pun intended) so I’ll keep you posted on those. For now, this one is the star. $6/4oz, $17/16oz @

Budget Beauty, Part 1

Even in these tough economic times, I just can’t “get by” with any ol’ conditioner so I have made it my mission to find ones that detangle well and won’t cost you a pretty, or rather, an unpretty penny. And this got me thinking, if I can’t afford to use my beloved Terax everyday, I still need one that gets the job done, right? So we’re starting a new on-going feature called Budget Beauty (original title, huh?!) where we’ll feature products that have worked for us and are affordable.


Organix-Teatree-Mint-Conditioner ORGANIX Teatree Mint Conditioner ($6.99/13oz @ is one that totally caught me by surprise as I seem to be more skeptical of anything that has ORGANIC or ALL NATURAL on it as most just don’t seem to work. But this ones puts some faith back in me. It contains jojoba oils, Panthenol, peppermint oils, Australian Tea Tree oils, Shea Butter and vitamin E, to name a few. And the most important trait? It detangles and conditions beautifully!
