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 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
