Meet Dr. Wang, HSN’s new golden boy of eczema (his product sold out in minutes on their network). Dr. Wang is a renowned New York City dermatologist and medical researcher who recently earned the coveted Good Housekeeping seal with his game changing product, Eczema Ointment Natural Calming Moisturizer. Inspired by his encounters with thousands of patients –Did you know that over 30 million Americans suffer from eczema!!! And a whopping 100 million struggle with sensitive skin?! He wanted a solution for those struggling with skin disorders, so after much research, he created a special calming ointment merging his background in dermatology with the benefits of traditional Chinese herbs and ingredients and enlisted the help of his father, Gui Wang, a specialist in the field.

Dr. Wang’s Eczema Ointment is unlike any other skin reliever the industry has ever seen. His herb-based balm helps protect skin from irritation all while promoting hydration and soothing without steroids. What makes it so special is it takes the itch away in minutes, relieving the symptom and calming the skin. It’s also effective on mosquito bites, which is an amazing side benefit, especially for me since I’m always getting eaten alive.

Paula’s Choice has two new products you’re going to want to take note of, the Resist Soothing Primer Serum SPF 30 ($30), now available and the Resist Omega+ Complex Serum launches in April. Both are featured above with some of her other existing all-stars from the Paula’s Choice Resist collection.

We all know a minimum of an SPF 30 everyday is a must, but it’s never been as easy as now! Her new, Resist Soothing Primer Serum SPF 30 is a clear formula that doubles as a multi-tasking primer and goes on so smooth on the skin. Ironically this has more of a serum texture then the new Omega+ Complex serum they are about to launch.

With Spring right around the corner, that same grooming routine that got you through during the winter month isn’t going to cut it anymore. It’s time to revamp your grooming routine, like they say: New season. New rules. Right? Thankfully, that’s where we come in, with a handful of new products to ensure you look your best as head into Spring.

Anthony Blue Sea Kelp Body Scrub, Anthony.com

Kickstart your whole body for Spring with a deep exfoliating scrub like this one from Anthony. This scrub uses natural sea salt to do away with dead skin cells and remove any impurities. It also has a gentle blend of aloe and sea kelp for a smooth and irritation-free finish.

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Murad, read any of his books, or know anything about him (in addition to creating his incredible skincare line, Murad), you know his commitment to health and beauty runs inside and out. Today, I’m partnering with the brand in going EyesUp meaning I’ll be going dark this afternoon on social media for 24 hours with the intention of converting that time and energy to more meaningful things. Like playing with my dog, spending time with my mom while she’s in town without my phone in my hand (she gets in at 2pm so I’ll definitely be dark by then!), playing cards with my boyfriend instead of staring at a computer screen — and if we’re really getting crazy, maybe have that art night we’ve been planning for the last year.

I always love trying new, innovative, make-your-life-easier beauty devices and products. Here are a few from Neutrogena, Color Me, Makeup Eraser, Sally Hansen and more that caught my attention. Full reviews below!

What is happening? It’s summer, it’s winter, one minute it’s warm and the next you’re enjoying a sandwich from your favorite local Alidoro spot and then next our server is Harry Connick Jr. disguised as an old man. No really, that happened to me today. Don’t worry I’ll share the video of him peeling off his mask *think Mission Impossible style* to reveal himself when it airs on his show. On the upside I got a blow-out this morning so at least my hair looked good. I was otherwise in my usual athleisure-no-ones-paying attention to me lunch attire.

Well friends, if there’s one trend that seems to be growing, it’s the want for big lips! While I’ve never done a lip injection, the temptation is real (and I have decent lips!), so I get it. I have however tried a million different lip plumpers and the below are my favorite. In fact, I like to use the Fillerina all day everyday, then do a regimen of lip balm, Juvalip Lip Plumper Device, followed by Grande Lips Hydrating Lip Plumper for an instant plump lips. I also like to have Skyn Iceland Plumping Lip Gels on hand for special occasions when I need a smooth lip as a base. I explain more below!

This Valentine’s Day, I got the incredible opportunity to spend it with Gwen Stefani and Revlon in celebration of  their new CHOOSE LOVE campaign. (Fitting for a Valentine’s Day event right?). Gwen is Revlon’s newest global brand ambassador and will be starring in their empowering new campaign #ChooseLove.

As if she needs any introduction… Gwen is a three-time Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, fashion designer and entrepreneur and is well known for her bold and trendsetting looks. She’s been inspiring me since I was a teenager and still to this day. She is my most long standing girl crush of all time — and is it just me or does she just get better looking with age? Goals people! One of her first roles as brand ambassador includes starring in a global multimedia Revlon campaign called CHOOSE LOVE, a campaign geared towards choosing and celebrating love throughout the world.

I have always had skin that was on the oilier side (especially in my T-zone) and am constantly on the hunt for the best products to keep my skin feeling clean and my make up in place.  There is nothing worse than checking yourself out in the mirror halfway through the day to see most of your make up has slid off, especially in the warmer weather.  Here are some of current go tos!

Happy last day of February everyone! This year is flying by and I for one am ready for a vacation. It has been the most exciting few months of filming and magazine collaborations which I can not wait to share with all of you! Between Health Magazine announcing my campaign with Olay (we have another surprise coming soon!), Redbook featuring my charity and I got to announce my partnership with Vanity Fair, February will be hard to beat. However, March brings some awesome projects with Glamour, New Beauty and Amazon which I dying to see! I started my site 9 years ago because I worked for the best beauty and skincare brands and it felt like no one was leveraging experts or sharing product formulations and information in the way it’s so readily available now! And the fact that this industry (not just in beauty but fashion and travel too) continues to surprise me and push my creativity, it is never a dull moment. What I did with Olay was groundbreaking. I’ve never known a blogger or really any identifiable person go through clinicals to have their skin checked during product testing. It’s always just an anonymous clinical statistic and some number of a percentage of women that saw changes.  I’ll have more to unveil on that soon! I think the best part of working non-stop this new year was after months of being excited but so exhausted from early call times and the hours I spent researching, testing and reading before going on camera is now I get to sit back and see all of these projects come to life. Every collaboration has been so different and I’m so inspired how much magazines are embracing bloggers, these past few months I have been inspired and challenged in ways I didn’t even know were possible.

The first is their newest addition to their fabulous Baby Lips line called the Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon ($6.99), their first oil balm that delivers intense moisture along with intense color.

Today, Ole Henriksen reveals his new look and as part of the relaunch has added a new Balance Collection, designed to control oil and refine pores without stripping skin.

The 2017 Pirelli Calendar has been revealed and spoiler: it’s amazing. Shot by one of my favorite photographers, the iconic, Peter Lindbergh, this calendar conveys “personality, sensitivity, and the guts to be yourself.” While the photos are incredible so is the fact that Lindbergh is the first in the industry to have shot three editions of this infamous Calendar. The Pirelli Calendar, which has been produced yearly since launching in 1963 has previously been shot by big industry names including Helmut Newton, Steven Meisel and Annie Leibovitz and has featured so many iconic models and celebrities. 

I’m so obsessed with Kevin Murphy!!!!! I’ve admired his products for so long but getting the opportunity to spend the afternoon with him took my admiration to the next level. What an absolutely delightful person, who completely lived up to his hype. After months of struggling with my hair color — I loved being blonde but the colorists I was working with a few months back kept giving me weird highlights at the root and the intense black root to blonde highlight was not working for me at all. Expecting full well to walk into my color appointment with Kevin and ask for an ombre or some way of fixing the disaster that was my hair, he alongside his amazing Director of Color, Kate Reid had something else in mind: rose gold.

So in an unexpected turn of events, I got rose gold hair, with these beautiful highlights that gave my color and hair so much dimension.  I am obsessed! Kevin Murphy has such unique colors and vision, and this was the perfect tone for me. I love how they worked with me to create a custom color that worked for my skintone. Kevin Murphy also launched 5 new products for spring, four of which are available now with another launching in April. See below for details!


I’m really feeling cream highlighters at the moment. Whether it be to create a glowing, radiant complexion or do an obnoxious strobe of light in my cheekbone, I’m all in. I was recently at Space.NK for the launch of their exclusive By Terry limited edition Techno Aura collection. Featuring the Glow-Expert Duo Stick in 3 shades, 2 limited edition Gloss Terrybly Shine (aka lip glosses), and an exclusive new Eye Designer Palette Parti-Pris in No3 Techno Aura, it’s a memorable collection with the Glow-Expert Duo Sticks being my highlight (pun intended).
