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.

beauty for a cure: Jurlique

I love finding products that not only work but make you feel good too. I've always loved Jurlique. The Purely Age Defying Day Cream with SPF 15 was once a staple in my beauty routine. The Citrus Hand Cream has a rich, nourishing texture and blends into skin to leave it feeling super-smooth. And the Citrus Purifying Mist--another must-have--comes in an adorable, mini, square-based bottle and offers a spritz of clarifying mist that refreshes throughout the day. Plus, the scent reminds me of a childhood favorite--Love's Baby Soft Lemon (that's because it has the tangerine, mandarin and lemon in it!) The best part: Now you can get a whole collection of Jurlique products at a specially discounted price and contribute to Breast Cancer research and awareness at the same time.

In conjunction with Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC), a program of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Jurlique is joining the fight against breast cancer, raising awareness and funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
