Fresh Scents in Small Bottles

Fresh has some of the purest, most enchanting fragrances around. Their ingredients are concentrated, and often rare (hence the higher price points). That’s why we at Latina are absolutely giddy about their new Petite Parfums, a collection of plane-friendly one-ounce glass bottles of some of their popular scents. Not only can they move easily through Customs but the price ($32 each, fresh.com) makes them a much easier purchase.

Your Skin Looks Amazing! (How Much Did It Cost You?)

Recently I was told my face looked healthy, flushed and so well rested. This is a compliment I can't recall hearing in my whole life. (Usually I hear how tired, run-down and pale I look.) I suspected I knew what it was that prompted this comment, so the next day I tickled my cheeks with another helping of La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Peach Glow. I swear, I got two "You look pretty"-comments and one: "You look really good today." It has to be this blush—this incredibly blendable, easy-to-wear anti-aging cream with gorgeous color kick.

Why a Silk Pillowcase?

A friend of mine uses a satin pillowcase. Her boyfriend does, too. Did you know it's actually used to prevent the pulling, scratching and wrinkling of your skin? So it's a great anti-aging device. And it’s also great because the slippery material helps prevent hair from tangling and therefore breaking. A beautiful secret, indeed.
