Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Peel & Reveal

Friday, November 4th, 2011

A smart man listens to his wife. And that’s what Peter Thomas Roth did. At home, Mrs. Roth was combining two of the brand’s best-selling products – the Anti-Aging Buffing Beads and the Pumpkin Enzyme Peel. And so, the Clinical Peel & Reveal was born. This over-the-counter dermal resurfacer means business – skincare runs deep [...]

While everyone else in The Beauty Bug household is watching the local football team play like marshmallow men and end their season, The Beauty Bug is nourishing Her face with the Kenzoki Marshmallow Mask – a much better way to spend a lazy Sunday if you ask Her. The whipped mask is just divine.  It’s [...]

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

Don’t call it a comeback. This industry classic just got a (much needed) makeover; an alteration. Shu Uemura’s Nobara Cream Cover Stick is back, this time in a versatile stick version, with a new formulation.

Darphin Aromatic Renewing Balm

Friday, December 14th, 2007

Not only is Boston buried in about a foot of snow right now; The Beauty Bug is also buried in mounds of tissues. She’s currently recovering from a lingering cold.

The Beauty Bug loves to go shopping with Her Grandma, especially when they hit up the makeup counters. Grandma buys her clay mask from Lancome, and her Pure White Linen from Estee Lauder.

Review: Calme Essentials Collagen Face Mask

Sunday, April 8th, 2007

The Beauty Bug first learned about this mask on a flight from LA to NY – a women three seats over put it on mid-flight. She was intrigued and petrified at the same time; petrified because it’s the Beauty Bug’s opinion that this mask should only be worn in the privacy of your own home. [...]

The Beauty Bug went shopping with The Plastic Surgeon’s Daughter on Saturday. The PSD picked up Givenchy’s Eye Fly Lash Extender Mascara.

Review: Scuba Bath Shop Products

Monday, February 12th, 2007

It’s always refreshing to be able to take a break from the big name in your face brands, and experience a niche brand that often times falls under peoples radar. It’s like going to see an independent film after you’ve seen nothing but summer blockbusters – it’s just a breath of fresh air. Scuba Bath’s [...]
