Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and those of us holding the mascara wand.

After two decades of covering the beauty industry, I've come to learn what makes it so alluring. Finding the perfect shade of makeup to match your skin tone, adding a swipe of eyeliner to give your tired eyes a lift, discovering an innovative new product line, or indulging in a totally luxurious spa treatment. My experiences have been documented in magazines, newspapers and websites worldwide. I've tested newly formulated products in the lab, explored hair removal options, shopped for lipstick, added shine to my hair and succumbed to massage marathons--all in the name of beauty. I've written press releases, hosted makeover events and co-authored a Do-It-Yourself Beauty book (Alloy). On this blog, I write about products and services that I come across every day as well as those that have been provided by publicists or the companies that make them. Either way, I write what I think. I hope to share some of my insights--and bring you the latest, greatest beauty news right here. Join me in the quest to find all things pretty.

breakthrough beauty: the big brush-off

gives you
an exclusive preview
of FOX TV's Good Day Dallas
Breakthrough Beauty feature...
as reported by Susan Redstone

Washing my face with my favorite cleanser--and my bare hands--doesn't always give me the deep clean I need. But Garnier has come up with a new and improved way to come clean. Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew The Brusher Gel Cleanser ($6.99) comes with a built-in scrubbing brush that lets you go beyond regular manual cleansing. At first, I have to admit, I was hesitant to try it. I spend enough time each day scrubbing baby bottles with a bottle brush and the thought of using a similar tactic to clean my skin just wasn't that appealing. But in the name of beauty, I indulged. Turns out it's a pretty cool concept. You squeeze the gel into the brush then twist the bottle closed. What looks like rubber bristles are actually soft and flexible and feel soothing on your skin as you scrub away dead skin cells on your face in circular motions. The non-drying formula, which exfoliates skin to deeply eliminate impurities and promote cell renewal, is packed with good-for-you ingredients. It contains Vitamin B5 for moisture, Vitamin E to detox skin, and Green Leaf Extract to sooth and refresh. The result is clean, radiant skin instantly. Look for The Brusher Gel-Cleanser at mass market retailers nationwide or click on for more info.
