Hissyfit Body Double Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30+

Hissyfit Body Double Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30+

I've been in a bit of a body moisturizer rut lately, so this came at the perfect time for me. I wanted a great feeling, great smelling, light but super moisturizing product - that also has SPF for at least moderate daily outdoor exposure. Body Double, from new Australian skincare line Hissyfit, hit the mark in all the categories above for me. I loved the creamy, silky light texture of the lotion and the fragrance is really nice! It's a little sweet/a little tart - (think a Creamsicle) from the blend of Vanilla, Almond, Orange and Grapefruit extracts it contains. After applying 1x day after a shower my skin was noticeably softer and smoother, but without a trace of greasiness. The lotion absorbed quickly but had a nice "moist" effect that I liked. I was left with a subtle sheen on my skin and with regular use I could tell that my skin was really supple throughout the day. It's a nice size for travel and I found it was very concentrated to a few pumps went a long way to make it budget friendly as well

  • One of my other faves, this one is very comparable to Diorshow, but just being about six dollars cheaper.

I've never tried a Too Faced mascara before, but it seemed like this new tech/beauty hybrid was a great product to start with. The mascara cap includes two small but bright "spotlights" which autmatically turn on which you twist open the top. They allow you to apply the mascara in any location - even the dark, and still be able to see each and every lash. It's true this a great technology/beauty innovation - but it's not just a gimmick. The actual mascara formula was very impressive. The mascara is very black, thick and silky. I loved the way it applied on my lashes with no clumping. It gave me great length and a LOT of volume (it's more of a thickening formula than lengthening in my opinion). Even with several coats I got no clumping, and during the day there was no flaking or smudging. My lashes didn't feel hard or stiff, which is another plus in my book (it's such big pet peeve of mine!). Too Faced has really created an item worth the "buzz" - and it's also a perfect Holiday stocking stuffer for the beauty lover in your life!

The bottles are short, rectangular with a soft black vinyl cap. The shades, (which are even more vibrant in person) were really unique. All the shades are just named by color and number. I picked up Blue 2, Blue 3, Blue 4 & Purple 2 (pictured, left to right above). They also had a wide variety of pinks, oranges and even a few pretty greens to choose from. The series of blues ranged from a really pretty sky blue with a touch of violet (Blue 2), to a lovely periwinkle cream shade (Blue 3) to a navy with a touch of purple (Blue 4). I also loved the (Purple 2) shade which is a true purple cream. These are all creams formulas with no shimmer, glitter or iridescence. The polish is a thin/medium consistency which flowed well on the brush, application was smooth and it gave great coverage. With two coats the shades were very close to what is seen in the bottle. The staying power is good for a polish of this price. I would say about 3-4 days with a daily top cop applied. They are currently having a buy 2-for-$8 deal too! A single polish is $5 each. I suggest you head over to your closest Urban Outfitters ASAP as many of the shades were going fast and, unfortunately, at this time they ARE NOT available on urbanoutfitters.com (they do offer their exclusive lines of lip gloss and colored mascara online. Happy Hunting!

  • You really cannot judge a fragrance solely by the name/bottle/celebrity/color/price attached to it. I feel you have to experience it to really know for sure if it's for you (much like another love of mine, wine). Case in point... You really cannot judge a fragrance solely by the name/bottle/celebrity/color/price attached to it. I feel you have to experience it to really know for sure if it's for you (much like another love of mine, wine). Case in point - as soon as I heard Black Star was Teen-Friendly rocker Avril Lavigne's scent, it did cross my mind for a second that it would be sweet, sweet, sweet - and probably not that complex. Well, I was very wrong (see - don't assume!). This is a scent that young teens/younger women (who are her primary fan base) will probably love, but many other women will also love it because it's really good. Avril describes the scent as "edgy and feminine in a fun way", and I have to say that really does capture the essence I got from it. The opening notes of pear were very bright, fresh and clear - which I really enjoyed. There was also a plum note that also came into play early in the scent on my skin, which remained throughout. As time went on I got a bit more of the floral from the hibiscus flower, but mostly it was a light plum/pear mix and I loved it! The dry down is where the "edgy" vibe comes from, in that it's a dark chocolate - which was the perfect mix of sweet and dry on my skin, with just a touch of coconut/vanilla swirled in as well. The lasting power was also very good. While this is perfectly suitable for day time, I also liked it for an evening scent as well. As for the packaging, I found myself loving it more and more the longer I spent time with it. The pink/black color scheme and "studded" effect with the silver geometric cubes is really fun and different. The shape of the bottle is reminiscent of a few other scents I can think of (and probably you can too), but the shape has a nice twist to the idea in that it's a unique asymmetrical star (which also has a different effect if you look at the bottle from a bird's eye view), and underneath the black cap is a studded silver metal piece which can be slipped on and worn as a ring or as a pendant. Cool!

My love affair with the French luxury skin care line Orlane has reached new heights with their at home skin treatment system, the Orlane Light Box. The Orlane Light box is a luxury skin care system made up of 3 steps: an eye treatment complete with serum and eye patches, a brightening mask and an after mask cream - and best of all the entire treatment takes only 7 minutes! That means that this was a breeze to use in the morning when I really wanted to take my skin to the next level, or right before getting ready for an event in the evening. The lucite box contains 1 tube of eye serum, 6 eye patches, 6 pre-measured mask mix packets and 1 after treatment cream. This means that it is a 6x treatment product. (It can easily and safely be shared among friends to split the cost, FYI). Everything is laid out clearly and organized very well, so I only had to read the directions once and I completely understood the three steps and how to use the products: Dazzling Eye Ritual, Glowing Skin Masque and Evervescent Cream Glow. I began with the eye treatment, and while the eye patches are on, I moved on to mix the supplied powder into the premeasured masque packet, let it foam and then applied it on to my skin. Since none of the products slip or slide off the face, if you don't have the time to lay down for the 7 minutes, you can certainly take care of other things around the house and multi-task (the usual story of my life!). But if you do have the time, laying down and relaxing just makes this experience that much better... After 7 minutes, I peeled off the eye patches, and this is where I could really see what an exceptional product this was. My eyes looked brighter, fresher and less puffy. Then I rinsed off the mask and my skin was as smooth as a baby's, again, brighter and completely hydrated. The final product the cream glow, sealed the deal by adding just a tad more moisture and subtle illuminating effects as well. I was literally beaming my skin was glowing so much! :) This is perfect for normal, combination and dry skin and the products can be edited down to a smaller cosmetic bag or zip lock for a luxurious skin treat while traveling or after a spa treatment as well. This is absoultely an innovative skin care breakthough and without a doubt - "WEP" (Worth Every Penny).

I've just discovered a new Nail Polish line - and you're going to love it! It's called Np2 Nail Perfection and it's a nail polish duo of durable, chip-resistant color base paired with an express top coat. The colors in the line up are truly unique, edgy and beautiful! There are 32 shades and they are all free of Toluene, Formaldehyde and DBP. For those of you looking for an easy French manicure solution, they have several mix and match collections with pretty pinks and nudes combined with soft whites. The two bottles are stacked and easily snap apart so you can mix, match and experiment. This is also a perfect solution for travel! I have several favorites, such as Atomic, Blue Planet, Cosmic Ray, Hypothesis and Symmetric. I recently got a manicure with a deep, iridescent black/slate grey with a touch of purple called Theory - and I can tell you this is going to be one of the hottest shades for fall!

I have to admit I haven't really used a ChapStick product since my mother used to buy them along with my soap, toothpaste, etc at the drugstore for me...so it's been a long time. However, delicious scent varieties + plus my beloved lip finish (shimmer) + inexpensive = a lip balm I want to try! What's great about ChapStick True Shimmer is that this lipbalm is extremely subtle, giving a beautiful sheen and glow to my lips. When I looked closely, and in sunlight, I noticed the thousands of pretty, tiny flecks of silver micro-shimmer. These balms go on a soft creamy white out of the tube and with finger application smooth out to a clearer shade. They don't add any additional color, but they work very well over a matte lip stain or lip stick if you are looking for more color for day. Used alone with a neutral lip pencil this can give a very nice "your lips but better" look. They are not "frosty" or overly sparkly. Nice, pretty and natural lips with the added shimmer is exactly the look I got. Blended Fruit Sherbet was one of my favorite flavors - really authentic with it's creamy creamy mixed berry scent. The balm was not chalky, waxy or gritty, and very moisturizing and comforting on my dry lips - especially while traveling on dry air planes, trains, etc. I found myself turning to this little gem often! My other favorite is the Tropical version, which is a yummy Pina Colada-like scented blend that will do if you're dieting or can't get to the real thing!

Prescriptives has become synonymous with custom blended products - their foundations, bronzers, lip glosses and tinted moisturizers are simply phenomenal in my opinion. Now I can add long lasting makeup to the list of things that Prescriptives does so well! The brush is a flexible plastic one with very fine bristles which did an excellent job of separating my lashes and giving very nice, natural length. The formula is fantastic - it did not clump, smudge or flake all day. In rain storms, super humid weather and even through a night or two forgetting to take it off it stayed ON. The effect this mascara gives is what I would call "naturally enhanced" - long but not super long, thick but not super thick (in other words you won't have the false eyelashes effect if that's what you need). But this is a mascara to definitely have in your collection for travel, warm weather vacations, working out, etc. As far as removal, as a small price to pay for this amazing formula you must use a very good eye makeup remover at the end of the day. This is a mascara that lives up to it's promise and worth every penny!"

Caress Evenly Gorgeous Body wash manages to take a scent concept that has been done before in many body care products - the brown sugar/vanilla combo - (although the second scent is listed by Caress as Karite Shea Butter) - and manages to not only make it unbelievably decadent, but combines it with a super moisturizing formula that anyone (even if you're not looking for a drugstore bargain) will love! With the "whoosh" of these two notes hitting my nose as I opened the cap, I knew that this was going to be a very nice experience, and a very different drugstore body wash. The scent was soft, sugary, but not cloying or containing a fake plastic-y sugar element I've experienced in many inexpensive body care products. The scent is prominent - I certainly smelled it lingering for a while after my shower, but it was so lovely I didn't mind at all. The texture of the body wash is a fairly thick cream/gel blend. The exfoliating grains, which are sugar based, are very tiny. The exfoliation is very nice and will be appropriate for those of you with more sensitive skin as well. (If you want/need a more intense scrub just combine with scrubbing gloves or a more abrasive scrubbing cloth). My skin was very clean, soft and even better, very moisturized after rinsing the scrub off. I found that I didn't need much additional body lotion afterwards at all, and my skin stayed soft and smooth all day. The packaging is a like it or hate it affair I admit (the dress on the front is really not necessary in my opinion), but unless you are a real packaging snob, this shouldn't matter very much. You will have to like warm, sweet scents to use this product, but if you do, this is really one of the best and delivers an experience equal to many products which are much more expensive. Another plus - this bottle is HUGE and should last a few months if used about 2x week. This is a drugstore gem that you don't want to miss out on!

Sometimes a beauty product doesn't have to produce "miracles" to still be considered a skincare staple for me. Avene's soothing moisture mask is perfect for those that have sensitive skin or skin that is usually normal but is acting a little "off kilter" due to dry air, lot's of sun exposure, very cold temps or stress/lack of sleep. It does exactly what is promises: provides soothing, moisturizing relief for skin. It's milky in consistency and has a pleasant, soft, spa-like light scent. I applied it anywhere from 1- 3x week depending on my skin's needs, after cleansing. I left it on for about 15 minutes at night (or after a full day outdoors in the sun) and then tissued off the excess. My skin really felt like it was "drinking" up the mask. This really made a difference in any dry/red/irritated/flaky or itchy patches on my skin. After rinsing off my skin felt soft, smooth and much more even in skin texture. This was also great for lessening the redness or irritation from pimples/breakouts in my t zone as well. I found that used more often during a week with breakouts, it completely healed them.

What's great about these cleansing cloths is that even if don't need a quick cleansing option or are not particularly interested in natural skin care per se, you will love these. The wipes have a pleasant, light pomegranate fragrance (reminded me a bit of cranberry fizz soda) which was very refreshing. They are of average wipe size (about 7x7"in). The wipes are very moist (not dripping wet) and most importantly, remove makeup extremely well. I wear it all - from foundation to waterproof mascara to eye pencil, blush, etc. - and I was always able to easily remove it all with just a few swipes on my wipe. The wipes were extremely gentle on my eye area and cleansed my more oily areas well without drying me out elsewhere, like my cheeks. The wipes left no heavy, sticky or greasy residue on my skin - it just felt clean, fresh and toned. After using them regularly, I loved how my skin felt. I had a very nice tone, and experienced no breakouts or irritation. My t zone was clear and the wipes also cut down on the shine I usually experience on my t zone in the AM. Note: As with many soft wipe packs with the resealable adhesive type of opening on top, I would suggest putting the pack inside of a larger zip lock bag to ensure that they don't dry out if you forget to close it tightly. These are a bit pricier than most wipes on the market, but well worth it.

The balm is just that - it's heavier than a serum, but not quite a cream. After washing my hair I applied 1 or 2 pumps (no more than that!) into the palm of my hands and added it from the mid-length to the ends of my (very wet) hair, sectioning my hair with clips as I went along. I loved the crisp, fresh citrus scent of the balm as well. My hair was super shiny, smooth and soft after blowing it out. I had great definition and control and what the balm gave me was straighter hair that still had some of the body from my natural waves, which is the effect that I was going for. This also gave me awesome frizz control during the day and even traveling in more humid climates. In addition, I also found that I could use this to "loosen up" my waves by just using the serum and then air drying my hair, which was nice. Again, my hair remained silky smooth, bouncy and frizz free as well. I never felt like the balm was weighing my hair down or giving me build up. I also loved using a small amount of this to tame flyaways after a plane flight or before going out at night. This is a great product from a terrific line and worth every penny

If you're not a "waxer" and still stand by shaving, it really doesn't get much better than the Bliss-Phillips Bikini Perfect Deluxe. There are so many features that I loved about the electric razor. It's a wet/dry razor, so you really can use it anywhere. It also suits multiple purposes - for example, if you need to shave fully, there is a specific detachable head for that (the micro shaver, which gave me a completely smooth shave with no irritation). If you just need to trim some hair, the trimmer attachment is perfect for that as well. There is also an epilator head for those of you who can take (a little) pain, which pulls hair out from the root for a few shave-free weeks. In addition, there are 2 very small heads which can be used to trim/groom eyebrows (fab!) It's very easy to change the multiple heads and even comes with a cute "Bliss Blue" travel bag for your summer trips! Note: You must charge the shaver completely after each use in order to have enough powder to do a complete shave. The Perfect Deluxe set includes: * Bliss-Philips personal trimmer with 6 attachments Precision Trimmer - Perfectly grooms bikini line with precision and comfort. Precision Comb - Ensures even grooming results, Adjusts to 5 length settings. Eyebrow Comb - Trims entire eyebrow to a uniform length. Micro Shaver - Extra smooth & safe with hypo-allergenic foil. Micro Trimmer - Shapes and defines eyebrows or removes a single hair. Epilator - Removes hair by the root for smooth skin for weeks * bliss lemon+sage body butter (1 fl. oz, 30 ml) * bliss ingrown hair eliminating peeling pad (1 pad) * Bliss-Philips beauty bag to take your glam gear on the go

This is a great product for smoothing and improving the texture of skin in the t zone. I would say this won't work miracles if you have serious problems which are better addressed by professional peels or microdermabrasion, but this is a great drugstore solution. I used this product several ways. As I began testing the product I would apply in the morning after cleansing and use it as a de-facto skin primer. Note: If you exfoliate your skin first, it is best to wait a few minutes before applying the re-smoother to avoid slight stinging. I used about a pea-sized amount and applied primarily on my nose, chin and a tiny bit on my forehead. The texture is light and smooth, and absorbed quickly. I really liked how my makeup applied over it and the overall effect once my makeup was on. I could really see a improvement after the first week of using 2x day. I didn't experience any clogged pores, break outs or irritation from the product. After the first week of use, the pores on my nose in particular were significantly reduced, which I was very happy with. In the evening I would apply my face serum after cleansing, add the re-smoother and then apply a light night cream. I woke up in the morning with great looking skin that was very smooth and had nice tone. I will continue to use this several times a week (as a little goes a long way) to maintain the great results!

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon the Moisturizing Gel Oil formulation with SPF15 and thought to myself, "now this is going to be a great product" - and sure enough it is! The consistency of the Moisturizing Gel Oil is like that of a thinned out honey (the color as well) - but not as sticky as I would have thought it would be upon squeezing about a quarter's worth into my palm before applying after my shower. This gel oil actually has a very nice, light feel with good slip. It gave me the most incredible sheen and hydration. It was a tad sticky on my body at first, but it absorbed very well and within a minute or two felt very lightweight - not heavy, greasy or gummy. My skin was soft, supple and smelled like their lovely cocoa butter scent. The effects of the gel oil lasted all day until my next shower - never any dry flaking skin after a few hours. For those of you who like to glimmer at the beach and bare your arms and legs during hot days, this is perfect for adding after a base layer of sunscreen (this product has SPF 15 already). I also got great results mixing it with shimmer lotion like my beloved NARS Body Glow at night.

I’ve used this product for years now and still haven’t found anything that compares. Use just a dime size amount to achieve super high gloss shine. It will smooth out any fly away(s) and your hair will feel like silk because of its vitamin E and rich botanicals. It contains sunscreen to shield the hair from the UV rays. This product does not cause build up, weighs down hair, and does not make your hair look greasy. It’s perfect to use with a flat iron. Biosilk smells really good too.

For 20 years, Ellen Sirot’s ageless hands have earned her worldwide acclaim as the “supermodel of hands.” Her hands have appeared in countless advertising campaigns, every major fashion and beauty magazine and worked with the world’s top photographers. Now thanks to the new hand care line she has created, Ellen Sirot HAND PERFECTION, any one of us can have amazing skin on our hands too! From the first drop of Hand Perfection that I applied, my hands became noticeably softer and moisturized. The lotion is white and a medium weight - a cross between a cream and a lotion. The lotion had the perfect amount of slip, felt lightweight on my hands and had a very faint scent, where I picked up some evening primrose oil fragrance. The cream is also very concentrated, so I literally only needed the pea sized amount that it suggests on the tube directions. It provided a beautiful sheen to my hands (not greasy) and sank in within a minute or two. After using daily for several weeks, I noticed that the overall tone of my skin improved, some discolorations were lightening, my nails and cuticles had never looked better and they were always soft and smooth - even after washing! Ellen Sirot certainly knows what she is doing. This is a fantastic product, and the Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection Night Cream, which I used in conjunction with this, just made my hands look amazing. The only improvement I could see with the day cream would be the addition of an 30+ SPF which would help in the maintaining of the skin brightening and anti-aging effects. The purse size (about 4"in long) was a perfect size and also has a secure flip top dispenser.

I have always been big fan of Sue Devitt's products because they are innovative, luxurious, effective and provide real benefits for the skin. I used this finishing mist as the final step in my makeup application each day. I loved how it gave my skin a true, luminous glow without shimmer or particles and really hydrated my skin. This is perfect for those of you with dry skin and/or fine lines. I loved using this in the morning and I could really see the difference in how fresh my makeup looked by the end of the day (even in very high temps!). I also loved using this in the late evening (sometimes just out of the fridge so it nice and cold) just to perk up my skin a little more before going out. It evaporated instantly and felt weightless on my skin. I found that no more than 4-5 sprays is all that was needed for the finishing effect.(More than that and I did get a slightly sticky feeling --however, even that went away after a few minutes). It did not irritate my skin and the effect always looked so natural and healthy. This can also be used to moisten your powder/foundation if it looks to dry/cakey as well. This is a luxury that any true makeup fan will realize is absolutely worth the price to make your makeup look it's best and get the most mileage out of it!

The eye cream comes in a small tube with a unique pen applicator which allowed me to apply the precise amount of product on the under eye area (not much is needed). It was extremely hydrating, soft, silky and absorbed quickly. I had great results applying my concealer over this cream. After daily use, my eye area indeed looked much fresher and smoother. I would often apply a little at night and noticed in the AM my puffiness/darker circles were much less noticeable.

It's not often that I rave about a nail polish remover, but it seems that time has come! Celebrity manicurist Bernadette Thompson has a line of nail colors and nail products under the Bernadette Thompson name. The star of the line, however, is this remover, Wipe Out. I have never used a nail polish remover which moisturizes and conditions my nails and cuticles SO well, and still manages to get every last trace of polish off in an instant! Wipe Out is a unique deep orange shade and has no horrible harsh smell (I still smelled chemicals, but it was an improvement over most removers). I was very impressed that it didn't dry out my nails and skin like many nail removers I've used in the past (even the ones which bill themselves as moisturizing!). It left made my cuticles soft and smooth and my nail beds were glossy and hydrated. This is a bi-phase formula and as per the instructions, I made sure to first shake it well to mix the moisturizing oils and the actual remover together. I have natural nails, but Bernadette was smart enough to create a formula which not only works amazingly well with natural nails, but also for artificial nails as well! If you think that all polish removers are the same, try Wipe Out and you will surely change you mind.

Fresh Citron de Vigne has as lovely a story as I've ever heard. The scent was inspired by Veuve Clicquot's Grande Dame Champagne (one of my all time favorite Veuve's!). Alina Roytberg, co-founder of Fresh, was invited to Reims, France for a tour of the grounds. It was there where she fell in love with the aroma of the grapes, and vines in the vineyards themselves. When she returned, she and partner Lev Glazman captured her memories in this fragrance. This is a scent that actually uses some of the elements of champgne in it's mix. The heart is a pinot noir accord, which is mixed with neroli, bitter orange, pink grapefruit, sandalwood, jasmine tea leaves, lemongrass, pachouli and amber. Upon my first spray, my nose was "prickeled" with this this bold, piercing blend of citrus notes - grapefruit and lemongrass, mixed with the neroli and orange. This opening combination did, in fact, give me a distinct impression of "fresh grapes" which are a little woody, a little green, and sometimes a little tart (as opposed to a "wine" scent). The remainder of the scent was just as lovely. The pinot noir heart was lovely mingling with the sandalwood, amber and patchouli. This is a perfect scent for spring/summer and could just as easily be unisex, which is another bonus. The staying power I would describe as medium, meaning that after about 3-4 hours this will wear a little thin, but it's so lovely I didn't mind reapplying. Fragrance Notes: Neroli, Bitter Orange, Pink Grapefruit, Pinot Noir Accord, Jasmine Tea Leaves, Lemongrass, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Amber.

When I think of Neutrogena, I admit that mascara is not the first thing that comes to mind, which is why I've probably never tried one from this line before. But in a quest to find more and more drugstore, budget-friendly products (that work really well!), I was excited when I was asked to give this a go. I have to say this mascara not only met my expectations but exceeded them for nice volume and a pretty, every day effect. The packaging is unique, with a separate tube for the mascara and the brush placed separately. When I opened the package, I unscrewed the mascara tube then placed the brush inside of it. The brush on the mascara wand is VERY large, and the mascara formula itself is a "drier" one. With the larger brush, I found that it did an excellent job of coating each lash. I got a fairly dramatic increase in volume without any clumps, and it really opened up my eyes. I was able to control the brush well and could sculpt my lashes easily. The mascara defined and separated my lashes very nicely and there was no flaking during the day. My lashes don't feel all dry/hard or "crunchy" (which I hate!) once the mascara dried. I also loved the fact this formula has olive oil and nutrients to condition my lashes. At night the mascara came off easily (I used the waterproof version, but they also have a regular version). All in all, this is a perfect mascara for those of you looking for a nice, healthy, lush everyday lash look. This is easily one of the best drugstore mascaras out there right now.

If we were told any other skin care brand had actual diamonds (1.75 carats of pure diamond dust) in their body scrub, we would either 1.) not believe them or 2.) think it was just a publicity stunt and not effective. However, this is Creme de la Mer - and you know how we feel about Creme de la Mer. Suffice it to say the diamonds, sea mud, tourmaline and all the other fabulous elements that went into making this body refiner are as effective and luxurious and all of our other favorite La Mer products (Check out our Best of La Mer This Next List!) The scrub is very soft and pliable and very lightweight. As soon as I applied it to slightly dampened skin, I noticed the sparkle (diamonds!) and liked that it had a significant amount of tightly packed fine grains that gave me a fantastic scrub. After rinsing off the scrub, my skin was not only smoother and baby soft, but I actually felt and saw the moisture that had been put back into my skin - it was glowing and I didn't have to use much post-shower body moisturizer at all. I used this 2x week for several weeks and was just so excited by the results.This is a phenomenal product, and absolutely what I would expect from the geniuses at Creme de la Mer! If you are looking for a little self indulgent body care purchase for yourself this spring, this is the one.
