Another Glowing Review:: Beauty Crazed

The gals at Beauty Crazed are not only witty, they are smart and have great taste.  Look at what they have to say about Prtty Peaushun.  Thanks for spreading the love ladies.

Prtty Peaushun - for supermodel worthy legs in a bag!

There are certain things in life that nobody should ever have to see: a bar (and the people in it) at 3am when they turn all the lights on; your parents naked; the men's washroom at Kennedy station at 8pm; and my pasty, neon-white legs!

I can't help you with any of the other stuff but I can save you from certain snow-blindness after staring at my legs thanks to:

Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion - 236ml - $40 - the best way to describe it is as makeup for legs but as well as that, it's full of good stuff that will also help improve the condition of your skin by lifting, firming, tightening and diminishing the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks and varicose veins as well as minimizing bruising and sore muscles - including: avocado oil and butter, pomelo/grapefruit wax, jojoba gel, calendula flower, green tea extract, rosemary extract, allantoin, arnica and blue vervain leaf in a formula that is 99.7% natural with no toxic ingredients, parabens, petrochemicals, sulfates, synthetic dyes or fragrances, talc or animal products.

The Fashion Spot wants you to Get to Know Prtty Peaushun

Beauty writer Sharon Feiereisen wrote a piece for The Fashion Spot about some "under the radar" beauty products.  With press like this we shouldn't be under the radar much longer!  Thanks for the love Sharon.

Prtty Peaushun
  • This brand instantly won me over with its "Skin Tight Body Lotion" tagline. Created by celebrity makeup artist Bethany Karlyn, it's a lotion that works double duty as a skin tightener and body moisturizer. It's packaged in an eco-friendly manner and comes in five different colors (plain and four tinted shades), each with light reflecting properties to help visually slim legs.

Another Glowing Review: Erin Ashley

Positive reviews are always great to read particularly when it's coming from a professional makeup artist.  In a world filled with beauty products we are ever grateful to those pros who tried us out and then wrote about it!!  Erin Ashley is spreading the love, read her review below.

Prtty Peaushun Review 

No, I didn’t type that wrong…that is how it is spelled :) and it is pronounced “Pretty Potion”!  This is the stuff you have been missing for a night out to give your skin that allover glow. The product information on the website:
“Created by celebrity makeup artist Bethany Karlyn.  Subtle, light reflecting particles in a natural emollient base gives the skin a gorgeous, flattering glow.  Radiance conceals minor imperfections and enhances definition to create a sexy, slimmer silhouette.  Infused with an innovative blend of plant extracts to lift, firm, tighten and diminish the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks and varicose veins, as well as minimizing bruising and sore muscles.  Look great in your birthday suit with…PRTTY PEAUSHUN Skin Tight body lotion.”
Look great in your birthday suit???  I’m in!!!  Here it is:
If you can’t see that writing, it contains 92% natural, raw ingredients, no toxic ingredients and it is cruelty free!   I have medium but it also comes in plain, light, dark and deep so there is a color out there or everyone.  The packaging of this product is so unique.  At first I was skeptical and thought maybe it was just for aesthetic purposes for the product to stand out on the shelf…but I can admit when I am wrong ….and I was wrong.  Bethany Karlyn calls it “anti-packaging” and it is designed to take up less space in landfills.  You know where else it is going to take up less space?-In my kit..a benefit that I adore.  I also think this allows you to get every last little bit out because you can squeeze it up toothpaste style..instead of the hard packaging that other lotions come in.
The lotion gives you a nice, beautiful glow…I like it because it isn’t overly shimmery like some others on the market…it really does just give you a beautiful lit-from-within glow.  The tiny bit of color in it helps to conceal and disguise any discolorations in your skin.  The price tag is a bit up there…$36  but for a cruelty free, non toxic product that makes your skin glow- it is pretty on target.  Also, this isn’t your everyday lotion…go use some Jergens for that.  This is some “creme-de-la creme, I’m putting on my lashes, I’m getting my hair done, I’m rocking that short dress and heels because I am going to see my ex at this wedding” lotion.  There are some big names that have used this lotion and love it too–check out what celebrity fitness guru Tracy Anderson has to say about it at one of her shoots.  Interested in your own? There is a list of retail locations here so you can try some out for yourself!

A Glowing Review: Natural Mommie!

Mother's bodies go through a lot during and after pregnancy.  Natural Mommie has found that Prtty Peaushun can help.  Check it out!

pplogo hide cellulite & stretch marks with celebrity make up artists eco friendly beauty trick: prtty peaushun
I knew stretch marks were a given when I gained a ton of weight during both my pregnancies. What I didn’t know was that they show in places I never would have thought possible. Like my calves. And the backs of my thighs. Add together stretch marks, probably too much sun this summer, and a little thing creeping in known as *cough* my 30′s….my skin is taking on a whole new look on its own.
In attempts to slow the process down I regularly exfoliate all over, I’m tyring to drink more water, I’m eating healthy and sneaking in some exercise here and there, buuuuut Prtty Peaushun is what’s really making a difference. Not only has the feel of my skin improved…it’s actually looking better. I even got the “your legs feel really really soft” from hubs when out to dinner the other night. *woo*!

So what is it? Prtty Peaushun, created by a celebrity makeup artist,  is a glowy, creamy sort of tinted moisturizer/ super luxe body oil. It’s made of golden, light reflecting minerals with a rich emollient base of avocado oil, avocado butter, jojoba, calendula and glycerin.  It’s not a self-tanner, contains no dyes, no parabens and is natural and vegan. The infusion of natural plant extracts works to lift, firm, tighten and even diminishes the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks and varicose veins.

I went with the medium shade since I’m very tanned and it’s a perfect shade for my skintone. I simply apply it like a regular moisturizer (it feels amazing on my legs after shaving) and I don’t have to worry about any streakiness, orange tones or stinky fake tan smell. It blends away discolorations, irritations and it’s surprisingly soothing on all of my mosquito bites I’ve accumulated over the past few weeks!  Prtty Peaushun also has a natural grapefruit scent (love!!) and leaves my skin feeling amazingly moisturized and smooth. The lotion spreads really nicely AND you can squeeze out every last drop thanks to the squeezable, lightweight packaging.

Celeb Love: Toni Trucks!

Toni Trucks is a rising star and lucky for us, she LOVES Prtty Peaushun!  Make sure to catch her in the just released indie film Ruby Sparks and the new TV series Made in Jersey.   The Diva Gals Daily recently caught up with Toni and asked her about her favorite beauty products.  

2012 TCA Summer Press Tour - CBS Photo Call

While we’ll definitely be taking notes on Janet Montgomery‘s colorful wardrobe on the new series Made in Jersey, premiering on CBS this fall, we’re getting Celebrity Beauty Secrets from her co-star Toni Trucks.
At CBS’ Summer Press Tour, Toni revealed all her top tips for looking absolutely stunning, from head to toe. Check it out!

HAIR: I’ve been using Joico shampoo and conditioners, which are great for colored hair,” says Toni, who gets her hair colored by celebrity colorist Jennifer J. Toni also uses a little bit of Aveda oils and L’Oreal leave-in conditioners to add sheen and shine. “Sometimes I let my hair air dry and go curly and the conditioner doesn’t weigh it down,” she shares. “I have really baby, fine hair and I need products that are light.”
FACE: “I use Proactiv,” declares Toni. “I love having any face care where you do this in the morning and this at night; a routine is good.” She also loves “my Clarisonic. I can not live without it!” Toni use Koh Gen Do makeup base, available at Sephora, which is “pretty wonderful.”
SKIN. “My new absolute favorite is Prtty Peaushun.” The body lotion, which adds sheen to the skin, “covers any imperfection and comes in shades from light to deep dark,” Toni reveals. “It’s hot in summer, and you don’t want to be wearing nylons. I’ve already told Janet I’m getting her some!” I’m sure a Jersey girl will appreciate!
Made in Jersey premieres Friday Sept. 28.

Tracy Anderson's Detox Week Wellnes Tote!

As you know Tracy Anderson loves Prtty Peaushun and of course we adore her.  She not only transforms your body in ways you seemed impossible, she also has impeccable taste.  We are thrilled to be included in her Wellness Tote for her Detox week in the Hamptons.  Check it out!




Who said coolers have to be bulky, large, and made of plastic? These folding coolers kept everyone’s food chilled throughout the days. There are no annoying ice packs to deal with, and the PackIt shape was perfect for fitting the meals (and the colors are really fun too!). As someone always on the go, I know I will be using these often and that they really are the cooler of the future.

Love Bottles


Such inspiring messages for our group! These bottles are made of glass, have inspiring words printed on bands on the outside, and we used them to enjoy my shakes throughout the weeks. They are almost too pretty to use only as a water bottle and I’m actually reusing mine as a vase. They are so pretty to look at and we loved having them for the group!

The Detox Market


One of my favorite LA spots (and the world) shared their favorite products with our participants in their own mini gift bag. Every time I am in their store I see things that I have never found anywhere else. They have the best website that is filled with unique products promoting a healthy way of life. They gave our participants a box of Kusmi Tea’s Boost Tea (love it!), Rare El’ements Hair Care system, Hurraw Lip Balms, Odacite Organic Skincare kit with a toner, exfoliant, day moisturizer, and serum, Suntegrity Sunscreen’s new tinted sunscreen, AND a discount off of your purchase at The Detox Market. This is my go-to website for gifts, and hopefully will become yours too!

Summer Skin Protection

Mott 50


While most clothing lines wouldn’t normally be in a sun protection category, Mott 50 is one of the most unique lines I have ever come across. It is a line of sun protective clothing, with a built-in SPF to their incredibly chic designs. On top of the protection factor, their styles are so perfect for the summer and our Hamptons spots, I love wearing it all! I was so happy to have them in the Hamptons for a trunk show and loved that they provide their gorgeous designs for the bags. They also donated their cute totes for us to fit all of the gear for the weeks. I love when a product has a dual-functionality and Mott 50 is a perfect example of that

I first heard about this amazing brand from my partner Gwyneth Paltrow. You know that when you have her seal of approval, it’s gotta be good. SuperGoop protected us from the summer sun with their City Sunscreen Serums. I loved how compact the serum was and could fit easily in a workout bags, plus it was so gentle on my skin and was such a nice addition for the group!
Learn More



This sunless tanner was created specifically to fight against that annoying orange look that you get with most self tanners. I noticed immediately how Xen-Tan creates a natural looking glow, and I know that the detox weekers loved finding their Deep Bronze Luxe in each of their bags. Summer is about being tan, in a safe way, and this is a much higher quality product than most self tanners on the market – and smells great!

Skincare and Beauty



Inside each bag the participants found a pomade from PRODUCT. This organic and plat-derived formula helps to defrizz and soften your hair with a simple formula of only 5 ingredients. It is such an amazing hair system and they even have a line for kids!

I have been a fan and supporter of VitaMedica for years and I tell everyone I know how their supplements have changed my skin through their amazing formulas. I have learned from VitaMedica that great skin starts from the inside and they provided their amazing supplements for our group: Anti-Aging, Clear Skin Formula, Probiotic-8, and their educational nutrition supplements cards. I know everyone can benefit from their skincare system and it’s fun to get lost on their website.

Joanna Vargas


Joanna Vargas is one of the top day spas in NYC and her organic product line does not disappoint your skin. Everyone at the detox weeks is going to have a glowing, blemish-free face after trying the daily serum in each of the bags. If you are in NYC should book a facial here ASAP, you will be thrilled with the results.

Amour Beauty


Armour is truly a rockstar brand and I love how their glosses are not only in chic colors, but are naturally-based. A lot of people don’t stop to think about the chemicals that are in the glosses and lipsticks they are using, and that is why I’m SO into this brand. The colors are also really fun and perfect for every occasion – from the Hamptons to NYC to LA, I know I’ll be seeing women wearing these wherever I am!

I Love My Muff


I LOVE I Love My Muff, from its catchy name, to their helpful line of products, I am always spreading the word about their genius products. There was definitely a demand for a product like this and I’m glad it’s out there and taking a stand. Every participant received a pack of their wipes and I know they will be put to use.
Learn More

Prtty Peaushun


I have definitely made my admiration of makeup artist Bethany Karlyn and her amazing Prtty Peaushun product known before, and I can’t think of a better addition to the wellness bag. This is an all-natural skin tightening lotion and the scent is intoxicating. Plus, someone with over 20+ years of experience in the makeup world, knows what will look good on your skin and give you a flawless glow. I also just found out that it repels bugs as well, which is good in the buggy summers.

Another Glowing Review: Perfectly Imperfect!

The lovely Lydia from the Perfectly Imperfect Beauty blog gave us an A!  Read the perfectly perfect review below.

Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion Makes it Easier to Face Swimsuit Season

Peau, (Fr.) noun, feminine [po]
PRTTY PEAUSHUN Skin Tight Body Lotion (pronounced Pretty Potion) looks deceivingly understated, but within this clever environmentally conscious packaging is a product that fosters confidence and proactively nourishes skin. PRTTY PEAUSHUN finds amongst its fans celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ann Hathaway, Rihanna, Nicole Richie, Cate Blanchet and now (however inconsequential) ME!

The packaging is designed to leave a minimal impact on the environment and the materials and nozzle ensure that you can squeeze every last drop out without letting contaminants in.
Created by celebrity makeup artist, Bethany Karlyn, PRTTY PEAUSHUN has subtle light reflecting particles in a natural emollient base that gives the skin a gorgeous, flattering glow. Radiance conceals minor imperfections and enhances definition to create a sexy, slimmer silhouette infused with an innovative blend of natural plant extracts to lift, firm, tighten and diminish the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks and varicose veins, as well as minimizing bruising and sore muscles. 
PRTTY PEAUSHUN gives my skin an incredible healthy glow (read: no Twilight sparkling skin here) with a sheer soft golden colour that melts into the skin. My arms and legs looked naturally radiant and slightly more contoured and defined. My matte foundation suddenly transformed into a covetable tinted moisturizer that I used the whole time that I was in Maui. Because it is fragrance and dye free (unlike the horrors of self tanners I have tried) there is no streaking or staining. The 92% natural raw ingredients-including avocado oil, jojoba gel, green tea and rosemary extracts, arnica, pomelo and allantoin-and handcrafted botanical extracts means that there isn’t anything that will irritate your skin.
