ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Optimum Amla Legend Rejuvenating Oil

Hair with Amla Oil

I’m often asked lots of questions about my naturally curly hair: “How do you go from curly to straight? How do you keep your hair so sleek? How do you prevent heat damage? And the truth is — there’s no one magic thing that I do to keep my hair healthy and amazing. It’s actually [...]

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 [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: First Aid Beauty Blemish Pads

First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Blemish Patrol Pads

I’m not one to go around haphazardly willy nilly making holy grail claims. Every product I try is not “OMG amaze” or “theeee best”. Don’t believe me? Just peruse my blog. I give fair and honest product reviews. And from my Instagram feed, you get a glimpse into the items I keep in my regular [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Red by Kiss Handle-Less Blow Dryer

Kiss Handle-Less Hair Dryer

Dealing with my natural hair can be quite a chore.  Don’t get me wrong,  I love my hair because when it’s awesome, it’s really awesome! However, at times it can be very unpredictable.  Sometimes a slight change in the weather can render once loved products almost useless, while products that were relegated to the “throw [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths

I’m a bit of a connoisseur of facial wipes. . . . A staunch supporter of the waterless cleanse. I wash my face daily. . . have done that for years, over 30 to be exact — but water isn’t always involved. And if we’re being 100% honest, given my hectic life as a new [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel

Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel

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 [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Garnier Ultra-Lift Transformer Anti-Age Skin Corrector

Garnier-Ultra-Lift-Transformer-10776

Today’s Topic — Skin Care. If you’re anything like me, your routine requires many steps. First I cleanse to remove the grossness of the day. Then I tone to balance my skin and rescue it from the rude, hardness of New Jersey water. Next I treat with a next-big-thing miracle serum of some sort (a [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: L’Occitane Divine Collection

L'occitane divine collection

I always have mixed feelings about skincare or beauty products that have “big” names — names that promise the world in results, but may not deliver on their word.  However, when a product lives up to the extravagant title, I feel such a sense of accomplishment, as if I am somehow responsible for the stellar [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: The Workout Band

The Workout Band

Working out is a real chore for me and I’m never in the mood to do it. However, my love of food and my disdain for muffin-tops and back fat pretty much guarantee that I will workout frequently. With that said, one might think I am all into gadgets and other contraptions to get results. [...]
