Happy Friday Deal from Skincando!

Do you remember when Siobhan introduced us to Skincando back in the early days? Skincando is back with a special spring Friday Deal. It’s a crazy good offer… Skincando is offering 25% off and free US shipping through April 1st. No code necessary, just shop and go!

I am a balm fanatic, as some of you know: There was a time when I would have squandered all my savings on Tammy Fender’s […]


Help! A Reader Needs Baby-Friendly Products!

About a year ago we pitched you a reader question from Sarah, who was struggling with pregnancy breakouts. Of course you came to the rescue with great feedback, so much so that Sarah is back — happy baby in tow — and looking for suggestions for clean, kid-friendly sunscreen and insect repellent. Here’s what she says… “You all were so helpful about a year ago when I got pregnant and started in with the pregnancy breakouts, and here we are a year later with a happy healthy baby and I’m wondering if you might take a baby product question? Through […]

5 Easy Beauty Travel Tips

Other than the year that my now husband lived in Boston and I was stuck in Minnesota, I wouldn’t consider myself a frequent flier. I love to travel, but other things (like paying off school loans —anyone else in that boat still?) have been priorities save for maybe a once a year, middle-of-winter getaway. But this year, I’ve happened to leave on a jet plane more frequently for work and I’m currently planning a two-week European vacation that takes off in late May. Airline fees and obvious liquid restrictions have made me get savvier about my cosmetics, and the more […]


Getting Cheeky with Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tints

When it comes to makeup, I’m more likely to go for the multi-tasker than the one hit wonder. Even if it isn’t already formulated for multipurpose use, you can bet I’ll try it in as many ways as I can think of. I get mileage out of my products. I was delighted when I heard that Tata Harper launched a two-in-one pot of color for lips and cheeks, and eager to see how it would wear and perform. This is a whole new game for Tata Harper, who reigns in the skincare department and makes next-level aromatherapy, too. As is […]

3 Beeswax-Free Lip Colors for Spring

Even in Minnesota, spring feels like it has sprung. And with the annual New York and Paris Fashion Weeks drawing to a close, we’re hearing lots about what colors, patterns and styles are hot for the season. Although I could do without the face embellishments some runways boasted, I’m always intrigued by the lip colors that emerge. My love for color on my kisser is occasionally infuriating since some of the most on-trend brands contain beeswax (my skin’s mortal enemy), but thankfully my makeup bag is already stocked with a few must-have colors. Barely there makeup, bright pops of color […]


Clare’s Morning Skin and Hair Routine… Exposed!

For a woman who is new to green beauty, this reader has an incredible knowledge of clean brands and DIY.
