Summer Time Favorites: My Skin Care Travel Essentials

Skin Care Travel Essentials

Packing skin care products for travel has never been easier…at least for me. When TSA first instituted the 3 fluid ounce rule where all products had to fit into a tiny ziplock bag, people scrambled to find appropriate sizes of their current skin care products. Skin care fanatics the world over were pissed! No one [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Philips PureRadiance Facial Cleansing System

Philips PureRadiance

Skincare is sort of my thing, no? Let’s all agree. I mean, I’ve been writing ThisThatBeauty for over seven years, and while we’ve evolved to cover lots more fashion, lifestyle and baby - the core has always been skincare (many years later and THIS Hyperpigmentation blog post is still the most read post on my site). We love to [...]

Glam Files: Night Creams for All Skin Types

L'Occitance Creme Divine

Do you know happens to skin while you sleep?  Beauty sleep is a real thing.  During sleep the body renews and repairs itself. Nowhere is this more visible than on the skin and even more so, the face.  Ever notice that when you walk into work after a long night that just about everyone can [...]

For the last two months I have been dealing with what appears to be acne. I’ve never had acne, however, I get the occasional hormonal breakout but nothing that a quick application of my go-to pimple reducing solution and mask couldn’t fix.  This breakout has not been so easy to deal with and I am [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment

Tarte Maracuja Eye Treatment

Confession: I don’t sleep well. My husband works late nights and my black pug is fussy and likes to think he owns the bed. I’m also pretty sure my upstairs neighbor doubles her apartment as a bowling alley with all the noise she makes. What does this equal? Interrupted and often incomplete nights of rest. [...]

Blemishes, ugh.   The bane of my oily-skinned existence.  Just when I finish treating one, another one pops up to take its place.  Delightful.  I am constantly on the hunt for products to help me deal with my breakouts without the harsh side effects such as dryness, flakiness and redness.  Sometimes my face ends up looking [...]
