Beauty Buys at Target

I have something to share with you.

I am at Target at least once a week.  And if I can pick up any beauty items in between the aisles of paper towels and peanut butter, it saves me a trip to Nordstrom, Sephora and sometimes even the salon/spa.

Here is my Top 10 shopping list for beauty items at Target:

Cover Your Face

I have something to share with you.

nugg-revitalizeI was recently at Target and saw these single use beauty masks in the skin care aisle.  Of course I was curious so I googled Nügg and was surprised to see that Allure magazine rated them as a Best of Beauty item.   Nügg Offers six different options, even one for sensitive skin so I decided to try two.

The first one I tried was the exfoliating face mask made with cranberry seed oil and Jojoba Beads.  The small container was enough for two uses so I put some in a small leftover sample jar for a second application.  I covered my face, left on for 5 minutes and rinsed off.  Next I applied my night cream and off to bed I went with my super soft skin.

The second mask I tried was the revitalizing mask and I LOVED it.  It has peppermint oil and immediately tingles and wakes you up.  I love my Bliss body exfoliator with mint for the shower and had hoped I would love the Nügg mask just as much.  This container also had enough for me to save for another application and I cannot wait to apply again.  The best thing is this can be used at any time of day and it definitely “wakes up” your face.

Next on the list…..the Anti-Aging Face Mask!


WOW – the Gray is Hidden!

I have something to share with you.

I tried to time it properly.  I headed to the salon two weeks before a wedding I had to attend.  New cut, refreshed color- all good. Two days before the wedding I jumped on a plane and headed to Florida.  The plan-  leave the pool early Friday, blow out my hair for the rehearsal dinner, then Saturday afternoon I would head over to a blowdry bar to get my hair done for the wedding reception.  But the silver sparklers had other ideas.  DAMN THEM.

roots-landing-wowI washed my hair, started spraying my no-frizz product and OH NO – gray.  Those damn silver sparklers decided to appear at the absolute wrong time and try to ruin my night.  BUT WAIT…..I had a secret weapon.  I had only used it once but WOW…it worked last time so I gave it a shot again. WOW…yes, that is what it is called. It’s a root cover up made by the co-founder of John Frieda’s hair care and it comes in a variety of colors.  I have the darkest of darkest brown hair, almost black and it worked.  I finished my hair, applied the product both Friday and Saturday night and knew I had a travel companion for life!


Don’t leave home without it: The Purple Stick

I have something to share with you!

I love shoes!  All kinds, all colors, and on a good day, all heights!  What I don’t love are blisters……

I have a five year old daughter and she even knows before we wear new shoes or new flip flops, we grab the purple stick.  The what??

Dr. Scholl’s For Her Rub Shield Friction Preventer Stick – the purple stick.  The greatest thing I learned about from another mom.  I was wearing a new pair of sandals and the back of my heel was causing me much pain.  And then she said I needed a friction stick.


I keep one in my travel makeup bag, one in my bathroom, one in my briefcase, another in the beach bag.  This stick is definitely a necessary travel companion after a full day on the road, running around airports, jumping in and out of cabs, etc.  And there are quite a few options out there.
