Spa Review: Guerlain Spa at the Waldorf Astoria
By Nataki Clarke | 03/29/2010 - 12:00

I was in New York from DC for an event and the rain was relentless all day. The last thing I wanted to do was make the slushy trek into Manhattan from Brooklyn to check out a spa. Still, duty called. When I arrived at the Waldorf Astoria, I thought it was beautiful, of course; but a bit stodgy and traditional. The setting did nothing to lift my rain-soaked mood.

Have a Naughty Valentine’s Day
By Angelique Serrano | 02/04/2010 - 15:50

Lickable body icing, non-toxic massage oils and whipped cream not meant for the kitchen; this can all mean only one thing: It must be Valentine’s Day. I have decided to embrace the holiday I used to loathe largely in part because I’m still bummed Christmas is over. I need a little something to look forward to. So let’s focus on a slightly sexier day of giving, shall we? If you need inspiration, check out Victoria’s Secret 7 Sides of Sexy on victoriassecret.com.

Beyoncé Brings the Heat
By Angelique Serrano | 02/03/2010 - 15:46

Already the number one selling women’s fragrance in New York City’s flagship Macy's department store after only six days on the floor, Beyoncé’s first fragrance, Heat, is generating some…well, you know. The only thing hotter than the sales of this sweet juice is the ad campaign, shot by "Single Ladies" video director Jake Nava. The spot features a writhing Beyoncé in a clingy, silky slip of a dress—which does actually slip off her back at one point in the video—singing the smokin' hot classic tune, "Fever."

Does This Really Work? Charcoal Face Cleanser
By Sandra Mariscal | 01/28/2010 - 18:00

If your afternoon glow is more like an oil slick, it’s probably time to invest in an oil-controlling cleanser. I just tried Lush Dark Angels Facial Cleanser ($10.95 for 3.5 oz, lushusa.com) made of charcoal and rhassoul mud to help absorb oil overload. It also has black sugar to scrub away rough patches and avocado oil to prevent dryness because if you over dry skin it will produce even more oil.

The Wet Look
By Angelique Serrano | 01/21/2010 - 18:16

So if you happen to be taking artsy pictures, or just curious about how models, makeup artists and photographers achieve the "wet" skin look, here's how: After applying foundation, apply Johnson & Johnson's Baby Oil Gel with aloe vera and Vitamin E all over the face with a cosmetics sponge. This will create a beyond dewy finish that mimics a post-shower wetness. I don't know when you'll have a chance to use this information, but I thought it was cool.

What Foods Trigger Sensitive Skin?
By Angelique Serrano | 01/14/2010 - 12:18

I have a friend who can’t eat cheese; whenever she does, her face gets red and breaks-out in these tiny little bumps. I feel for her, especially since my idea of heaven is a long hammock between two palm trees with a plate full of cheesy quesadillas and pina coladas. But for those of you with sensitive skin—skin that becomes excessively reddened, inflamed, irritated, or pained when triggered by environmental or internal factors—it’s important to identify what triggers your particular outbreak.
