The Beauty Bug’s cleansing experience recently been changed forever after She gave La Mer’s new Cleansing Foam a space in her bathroom cabinet.

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. She’s already went through an entire box of tissues, and even worse, She always seems to have to blow her now right after she’s applied [...]

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

When The Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing mask didn’t work, The Beauty Bug turned to the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Masque, hoping that it could balance and restore Her skin.

A Halloween Mask for the Beauty Junkie

Halloween has never been The Beauty Bug’s holiday.

But, She will be celebrating Halloween, Beauty Bug style of course – with the Peter Thomas [...]

PTR Pumpkin Enzyme Peel

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

Fall is here ladies – the signs are everywhere. The Starbucks pumpkin latte has returned (that’s a non-fat latte if you’re going to order one for The Beauty Bug) and Sam Adams Oktoberfest has hit the taps (this is something that The Beauty Bug Boyfriend is particularly excited about). In honor of all things fall, [...]

Body Bistro Green Apple + Neem Jelly

Sunday, July 29th, 2007

The Beauty Bug never thought that She and Paris Hilton had much in common (and She was quite proud of this). The same goes for Tara Reid and Halle Berry. But, She apparently spoke too soon. It seems that all the aforementioned celebs and The Beauty Bug all share a love for Body Bistro products. [...]

SPF 65?!

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

The other day, it occurred to The Beauty Bug that both her morning moisturizer and her primer contain SPF. The morning moisturizer, RevaleSkin Coffeeberry Day Cream, contains SPF 15, and her primer, MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect contains SPF 50. So did that mean She was protected with SPF 65 everyday this summer, or [...]
