9 Luxe Travel Products to Look Gorgeous on the Go

There's been a boom in dollhouse-sized, perfect-for-travel beauty products lately. The reason: travelers don't want to sacrifice quality or luxury just because they're jet-setting.

9 Beauty Products to Run Out and Buy This February

I don't mind the winter. (I went to college in Maine if that tells you anything.) But there's a shift that happens around the middle of February that leaves every cold-weather-dwelling person -- myself included -- itching for a tropical vacation.

And the new beauty products launching this February are some of the most summertime-joy-inducing I've seen in quite some time.

8 Luxurious Body Scrubs for Supersoft Skin

Once you've tried a truly indulgent, beautifully packaged body scrub, it's hard to imagine showering without one. I remember my first: the now-classic Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish. The brown sugar exfoliates away dry, dead cells. The evening primrose and sweet almond oils leave skin silky for days. And the ginseng root gets your circulation going. Plus, the hefty tub looks chic sitting on the cluttered ledge of my bathtub. I know I could mix together some sugar and olive oil for a DIY scrub, but the Fresh scrub is so much more.   read more
