  • A Midsummer Treat! 25% Off!

    We pluck, tweeze, analyze and over-analyze what we see in the mirror. Am I pretty enough? Is she/he prettier than me? Why did God bless/curse me with such a big/small _______ (fill in the blank here). To compensate for our seeming lack of, whatever is is we think we're lacking, we use potions, needles and maybe even, if we're brave enough, the knife. There's nothing wrong with wanting to feel better about yourself. I would NEVER begrudge a person for doing what feels right to make themselves feel pretty. It can do wonders for one's self-confidence. And while it is...

  • Let's Get Glowing! Buh-Bye Dark Spots!

    Let me just say this to start: Dark spots are NOT cute. Not on me, or anyone else. I've spent a lot of money over the years trying to find a solution...then a lightbulb moment, as Oprah says. I developed a solution myself! Introducing my All Aglow Brightening Face Wash and All Aglow Brightening Face Toner! As some of you may know, I spent a couple of years developing my All Aglow Brightening Face Butter and All Aglow Brightening Face Serum. I’ll admit, like much of this line, I developed these products out of a personal need – I was...

Makeup, dirt, pollutants, acne, sun exposure and even using the wrong facial products can cause our skin to look, well, pretty bad. That was my skin for many years. And here's the thing, I'm FANATICAL about my skin. I wash, moisturize and never sleep in makeup (um, almost never). Still, those pesky little dark spots would show up and stick around. I don't like to wear makeup when I'm not working, but because my skin wasn't...

  • Just because it says it's natural doesn't mean it is!

    I was born in Berkeley, California.  If you know anything about California, you know its reputation for all things natural (well, except Hollywood, but that’s another blog!). So I grew up eating pretty well, exercising and living an overall healthy lifestyle. It wasn't all granola and nuts, though. Not by any means. If I wanted cake, I ate it. If I wanted bread, I ate it. And on those common occasions when I had to pull an all-nighter cramming for exams at Cal, the Mrs. Fields Cookie Shop on Telegraph Ave was my best friend. Even today, I splurge when I want....

  • What are sulfates?

    You've probably heard the word "Sulfates" mentioned a lot in the beauty industry lately. Take a quick peek at the ingredient decks of many of your favorite beauty products and you'll see sulfates (aka sodium laureth sulfate,ammonium laureth sulfate, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and sodium laurel sulfate (SLS),  listed near the top. These are the agents that make your product lather and suds. They are often down upon for their tendencies to dry out hair and skin, not to mention reports of skin irritation. At Play Pretty Beauty, we don't use sulfates in ANY of our products. I started this company because of...
