Dynamic Duo!

Batman and Robin, Starsky and Hutch, Captain and Tennille… whether they are battling villains, solving crimes or singing #1 songs about Muskrats and their mating rituals, it’s amazing what the power of 2 can accomplish. Today’s recommendation is another power duo, but this time it’s by way of board certified dermatologist and internist David Colbert MD.

If you have any recollection of the above mentioned teams of 2 then you were most probably born sometime in the 1970’s or before, in which case todays 2 items will be of particular interest to you. Colbert MD  Illumino Face Oil and Facial Discs are these 2 products.

When both of today’s products are used together, they manage to enhance your skin’s natural glow and quite frankly rejuvenate your face. The facial discs (to be used 2 or 3 times per week) which can be used for 30-60 seconds in the shower remove your dead skin cells and help restore your skins natural glow while the Illumino face oil (which I use every night) helps cell repair and improves your skins tone and texture.

Long gone are the multitude of creams and night serums before bed, now it’s wash, tone and Illumino Oil and my skin has never looked better. I wake up and actually look great – like I’ve just had a facial great!

The discs come 20 in a pack and will run you $58, while the oil is pricier at $125 but will last you a long time, 1 pump is all you need per night to cover your entire face, and believe me your face will thank you. You can order directly online from Colbert MD or you can purchase his line of products from SpaceNK Apothecary or from Barneys.

These two items are truly amazing, the results will thrill you, I’m certain.

“It Had to be OUD…”

For those of you with curly/wavy/frizzy locks, you’ve just hit the hair care trifecta!

I have finally found a shampoo, conditioner and styling product that allow me to ‘wash and go’ without incurring a huge, frizzy, shapeless mess atop of my head. Gone are the days of me sleeping on my freshly shampooed hair so as to reduce its volume by morning.

Fluffy headed people rejoice, because there is a cure for you…


Your hair will never look like this again (see above photo). This victory does however come at a hefty price, but I assure you as someone who never needed to tease their hair in the 80’s to achieve volume, these items are well worth their price.

Drumroll please….

Philip B has created the Oud Royal line of hair care products that has revolutionized my hair routine. The 3 products I am praising today are:  Oud Royal Forever Shine Shampoo, Oud Royal Forever Shine Conditioner and lastly but certainly not least Oud Royal Mega Curl Enhancer. All of these products are available at Ricky’s NYC, SpaceNK Apothecary, Bergdorf Goodman and most other high-end department stores.

There are a multitude of reasons why you’ll love these products, but here are my favorites. Unlike other “anti-frizz” hair care products, these don’t just fight frizz, all 3 help shape your curls, making them lighter, bouncier and much more manageable. The scent is out of this world, I leave my house without perfume because my hair smells that good and it lasts all day. My hair even looks good the next day, which is virtually unheard of where my hair is concerned.

I’m all about the options, and Philip B’s Oud Royal line has them in spades. The conditioner can be used as a leave in if your hair is really coarse or dry and the shampoo can be left on for a few minutes for a deeper treatment. All 3 of these items have multiple uses depending upon your hair type, read the back of each item to get the best performance out of each product.

I can honestly say my hair (and I) have never been happier.

Happy Hair = Happy Human!

Happy shopping y’all…xo Elisa
