AmLactin body lotion has been used in my home for many years. My mother suffers from severe eczema and dry skin — so much so, she does not grow hair on her legs. I recall her going to the dermatologist and being prescribed a medicated lotion called Lac-Hydrin. Lac-Hydrin (also known as Ammonium Lactate) definitely healed, exfoliated the dead skin and moisturized my mother’s skin.
She began looking for an over-the-counter, lotion-type product that was comparable to the Lac-Hydrin prescribed to her. Her dermatologist recommended AmLactin. This was over 10 years …
Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting the first brick and mortar salon by Carol’s Daughter called MIRROR, located in Harlem, NY!
We’ve all heard about Carol’s Daughter (the #1 seller on HSN),well, founder Lisa Price (who in the ‘90s worked as a writer’s assistant on the legendary sitcom The Cosby Show) started this business in her Brooklyn kitchen mixing fragrances and creams.
Naming the line after her mother, Carol, Lisa launched a humble business, which turned into an empire as her collection spread via word of mouth like wildfire.
In this day and age, everyone is on the go and trying to get to where they need to be – quickly! Beauty is no exception to this rule, and we are always looking for a quick fix to our beautifying needs. Broadway — which, quite frankly, is a name I have been familiar with for years — has developed a revolutionary way to apply nail polish – NO DRY TIME, NO MESS… JUST PEEL OFF AND PRESS ON!
I’m sure many of you have seen the imPRESS Press-On Manicure ($5.99-$7.99) …
I get giddy when I get Mally Beauty products to try. Her products are so pretty, yet effective. They go above and beyond the call of cosmetic duty. This month, I have the pleasure of bringing to you her latest offering in the concealer category: Pro-Tricks Correct and Conceal Palette ($40.00; on sale now at QVC).
Pro-Tricks Correct and Conceal Palette comes with three shades to help you do battle on your face; Mally likes to call her concealers “war paint”. Sometimes in the morning, I feel like I’m going to …
Before The Great Gatsby hits theater on May 10th, get Daisy Buchanan‘s makeup (played by lead actress Carrie Mulligan, sided by the one and only Leonardo DiCaprio) from this latest novel-to-the-big-screen romantic drama.
As you can see, Daisy’s makeup is very delicate and feminine, but holds power at the same time. The story takes place during the 1920′s, but in this modern film version of The Great Gatsby, the makeup does not take on the particular extreme-retro look that was seen in this era of the ‘20s.
It is modified into more …

Oh, Dior! Another gorgeous product to have and to hold. Literally! Its lovely multifunctionality intrigued me, as it comes with both a sponge and gorgeous mini brush.

Many a primer comes across my desk here at the BeautyStat offices. Every once and a while there is a product that is new and different. Becca surprised me on a few levels with their New Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector ($36.00).
When I first touched this product, I noticed a main difference between this and other primers: there is no silicone in it! It glided across my skin, but in a less slick way. Immediately my pores seemed to disappear!
It reminded me of a liquid version of Mally’s Evercolor Poreless Face …
Thinking back, my favorite fashion model icons have to be IMAN, Beverly Johnson and Christie Brinkley. They were the hottest models of the late ’70s and ’80s. Fast forward years later — I met Beverly Johnson via the music industry; fast forward again to my career in beauty, and I am standing in the same room with THE IMAN. Now, to be able to review this amazing line of products is coming full circle.
So, back to this BB Crème ($20.00). After I received this in the mail (in several shades), I …
This year’s beauty and hairstyle trends have all emerged from the runways to the red carpet, obviously! Dark lips, luminous skin, retro updos and deep side parts were just some of the looks that are making their way as the top hair and makeup trends for the Spring/Summer 2013 season!
P&G Beauty has been following the red carpet season as well, from the beauty trends and the beauty uh-ohs. BeautyStat attended the Red Carpet Trend Recap Event presented by StyleUnited (by P&G Beauty) to find out which trends made the cut for …
