Something I Love

I just have to tell you how awesome this site is (and so totally worth every penny):

Beauty Pedia

The woman who runs it wrote a book called Don't Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me. This woman is a genius.

She reviews every single product available for skincare (and makeup) on the market and discusses whether it's good or bad and whether it does what it says it should or not.

I am LOVING it.

I used to spend $80/month on MD Skincare's Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel system -- I swore by it. I used it religiously up until my wedding and the month after until I found out I was pregnant.

And then I read in her book that:

"This is basically a good toner formula in pad form, and includes several antioxidants and retinol, but the jar packaging won't keep them stable during the lifespan of this product. In the end, this is a great big 'why bother?'"

Now I used the individually-wrapped ones so I imagine they were more stable, but basically for $25 she just saved me $80/month.

Geoff could not be more proud.

I highly recommend this site and her book because it will forever change the way you shop for skincare and makeup.

And I love feeling as if I am getting away with something by buying less expensive, but better, products.
