So ladies, take the time to moisturize! Your significant other will thank you in 20 years! Promise....more

Treating your Body to the Best Beauty Products Doesn't Have to be Expensive

Treating your body to the best beauty products doesn't have to be expensive. In fact, it's not expensive at all! During my college days I used Suave® Body Care all the time and now that I'm (sigh) still in school conquering a Ph.D program, Suave is my go product (I sneak and keep it in my drawer) for making my rough days of failed experiments, or my rough over washed hands, a little smoother. What I love about Suave Body care is that they're quality products available to everyone. So why break the bank when you don't have to? ...more

I'm Grateful that the Folks at Suave Thought I'd be a Good Gal to Spread the Word

Between living in the desert and raising six rough and tumble boys, I have my fair share of dry skin. Throw in there the constant dishes in the sink, the gardening in the potager, and the occasional art project, and it's no wonder I can't seem to keep my skin soft and smooth. :) You all may or may not know that I was born in the tropics (really wet), but have lived in the Southwest desert (really dry) for most of my life. Caring for my skin can be a bit of a full-time job...but when there are so many others to care for in this house, it's often the last thing on my mind....more

Me, Wendy...and John, Showing our Softer Side with Suave

You know, me and my girl Wendy Williams just have so much in common. I mean, first she had me on her show....remember? LOL! We both love to talk a lot...and now, she and I are both using Suave's yummy products to help show our softer sides this summer. I am a long-time user of Suave® products for both my body and my hair. I'm talking since way back in high school. They've been a go-to product that's always accessible, and always comes through in the clutch. When I travel and I've forgotten my shampoo or lotion, I know that no matter what store is nearby, I'll find my Suave in stock....more

Good-Bye Rough Reptile Skin!

I have dry skin. Like scaly rough and dry. Add to my naturally dry skin: washing dishes, scrubbing toilets, laundry, and living somewhere terribly, terribly dry. It is like the whammy of all whammies. In order for my skin to not resemble that of a dried out lizard in the desert, I must have a big bottle of lotion on hand at all times. Rich, creamy, moisturizing, gloriously smoothing lotion. I need a little something special to unlock my softer side. Just because my life is full and has its rough moments doesn't mean that my skin had to be rough....more

I Can Treat Myself with the Products I Use at Home!

I'll be the first to admit that when I'm stressed and overwhelmed, I don't do the best job of taking care of myself the way I should. I stay up way too late working on projects, eat far too many carbs, and any sort of pampering goes out the window. Although I may not always have the time or money for a spa day, I know that I can treat myself with the products I use at home!...more

I Have Abused my Skin for Decades, and Now I’m Paying for it.

Every night, as part of my son’s bedtime routine, I give him a massage with lotion. Why? Because I don’t want him to end up like me. I was lucky enough to grow up on the Jersey Shore. However, all of those years of sun, sand, and saltwater did a number on my body. And while being a runner is great for my health, let’s face it, the heavy sweating and extra showers aren’t doing any favors for my skin....more

I Decided to Take the Challenge

If you know my beauty regimen, you know that I'm no stranger to drugstore beauty and affordable products. Though I love my luxury staples as well, there are quite a few brands on the market that combine quality with affordability. Suave is one of those brands and I've always been a fan of their products. Everything from using their conditioner to co-wash my hair when I first went natural, to using their body washes and lotions that do the job just as well as pricier brands....more
