Polished Skincare 

In a market saturated with skincare products for women, I’m always on the hunt for quality products catered towards men’s needs. So when the team at the new brand Polished told me about the products by Dr. Lancer and Ryan Seacrest, I was definitely intrigued. Dr. Lancer is a Beverly Hills dermatologist with celebrity clients like Kim Kardashian, Oprah, and of course, Ryan. The two men teamed up to create a product they say is driven by science.One of the best things men can do for their skin is moisturize, but you want to use a daily moisturizer with SPF. The moisturizer from Polished has SPF 30 protection, which is what most dermatologists recommend. It feels non-greasy and light, in part because it’s oil-free. It’s not always easy to find moisturizers that don’t make your face shiny, so I was thrilled to see that there was no shine after application. It absorbs quickly into your skin and Dr. Lancer says it works to minimize surface oil from forming throughout the day. The ingredients include ginger …

Convertible Cruising

The weather in New York City has been beautiful lately, so it only felt right to put the top down and drive the all new 2017 Buick Cascada to the Jersey Shore. Who doesn’t want to feel like the party has begun the second you get into a car for a weekend getaway? Thanks to this convertible, that mission was accomplished. It’s been a fun summer of testing out different Buicks, and once again this brand did not disappoint.The design of the Cascada is stunning. With the click of one button, the soft top compactly folds into the trunk of the car in less than 17 seconds. The 20-inch aluminum wheels sparkle as they reflect the sunlight, adding to the sporty silhouette of the convertible. Perforated dark leather seats compliment the vibrant red color (other color options are, of course, available), and the interior lights up with red mood lighting. There are chrome details throughout the car, giving it a sleek and luxurious feel. To say this convertible is sexy is an understatement.I was impressed …

Maui Jim: A Taste of Hawaii

It’s no secret that I have a deep connection to Hawaii; so much so that I travel to Maui and Kauai every winter. If I can’t be in Hawaii everyday (one can dream), then I at least want to feel as close to the islands as possible. That’s one of the many reasons why I love the sunglass brand, Maui Jim. The company started in Maui’s Lahaina area with the mission to create lenses that prevent harmful UV rays from hitting your eyes while also capturing the vibrant colors of Hawaii. They believe that it’s not about where you are; its about the magic that happens when you slip on a pair of Maui Jim’s and experience that the view is truly better behind their lenses – and they live up to their mission. With more than 125 styles of polarized glasses that protect against UVB and UVA rays, there is something for everyone to choose from with this fashion-forward brand.I was immediately drawn to the colorful Wakea model. The frame is frosted crystal, a …
