Let Chloe & Jane Pamper You

May 13th, 2008

Chloe & Jane Mother’s Day might be over but that doesn’t mean we can’t pamper ourselves! I’m always on the hunt for something to soothe my feet, silken my skin, refresh me with amazing fragrance, and ease my tension. Having quality products in my home that aid any brief moment of relaxation and rejuvenation are a hot commodity to me. I personally don’t often have time to get to the spa, or the money to afford those expensive treatments, so the alternative is my own little convenient home spa.

I recently discovered some praise worthy natural body products from a new company called Chloe & Jane, that I couldn’t wait to share. Co-founding girlfriends Laura Albin and Wendy Viscuglia wanted to create a line of spa quality products that were luxurious, relaxing and eco-conscious. Basing their new company on the history of their own friendship, Laura and Wendy used some “alter-ego’s” on opposite sides of the spectrum to name their company. Chloe, a certified spa junkie and Jane, a skeptical spa newbie. The result being a line of hand soap, moisturizing body wash, hydrating wonder lotion, pure sugar body polish, and ultra smooth body butter. Chloe & Jane

Each product is created with all-natural ingredients, but the real pleasure is in indulging in the use of them. The fresh spa scents available include: Lavender Sage, Citrus Camomile and my ultimate favorite First Bloom.

In “testing” (aka: totally indulging) in my review of their product line, I was throughly impressed with Chloe & Jane. The consistency of their body butter is dreamy and left my skin feeling hydrated, but not oily. The Wonder Lotion is aptly named, it’s like “silk” in a bottle. And my favorite of all the products I tested had to be the Pure Sugar Body Polish! Perhaps because it sounds so delicious but is calorie free, but mostly because my feet and legs looked so healthy and beautiful after I tried it. Kudos to Chloe & Jane who have taken my own little home spa to new heights! – Daria

Make a fashionable yet personal statement

February 3rd, 2008

SmoyI first reviewed Smoy’s line of wearable art back in October, 2006. The Soho PhotoCuff was an instant hit with my girls; they loved being able to personalize the bracelet and change it up whenever they wanted. I loved the simple yet cool design and knowing I wouldn’t have to wipe any tears over lost charms. My girls were pretty excited when they saw the newest Smoy styles: the Noho PhotoCuff and matching Noho iPod case.

SmoyInspired by the beauty of lace the Noho line has beautifully delicate lines yet is made from high-quality vegan leather (vinyl). Laser-cut and hand assembled by the artist, the PhotoCuff has four frames, closes with snaps and is available in five colors. My fave is the pink, and that’s not just because it’s the color I reviewed firsthand. The matching iPod case has one frame and fits snugly yet the fabric is thin enough to operate the scroll wheel without removing your iPod from the case. In both designs your photos are held securely between layers of the PhotoCuff and covered in clear plastic to protect them from everyday use. Smoy makes it easy to make a fashionable yet personal statement. They even have a fun floral PhotoCuff just for kids!

SmoyAnd with Valentine’s around the corner, a Smoy Noho PhotoCuff or iPod case would be perfect for your family and friends. Surprise them and make it truly personal by filling it with photos before gifting it. Fashionable and personal—the perfect Valentine’s gift combination!—Emily

* Promotion! Smoy is offering Daily Dish readers free shipping on their order! Simply enter code “freeshipping08” at checkout. Don’t forget—this makes a great Valentine’s gift!

** Giveaway! Smoy is giving away a Noho PhotoCuff to one lucky Daily Dish reader! Visit Smoy’s website and leave a comment telling us your favorite Smoy design. Include a valid email address for our drawing. We’ll draw the winner from the comments and contact her via email. Deadline: February 11, 2008 (midnight).
