We are here to tell you what all the hype is with Billy Jealousy products. The name may not say it all because it sounds mysterious, but let me tell you the products are certainly memorable with straight forward results. The company started out with the aspiration of finding the perfect shaving products. The founder Pat Parsi, who we got to sit down with, told us of his constant struggle with finding the right shaving products. He and his wife started the company in 2004, since then Billy Jealousy has become a highly recognized brand with large department stores, online retailers, men’s magazines, and even George Clooney! While we didn’t get to meet the celebs that use these products, we definitely found out why they are so popular. The brand offers not just shaving products but face and body care items that are skin and budget friendly.
The #1 best seller for Billy Jealousy has been theBilly Jealousy Hydroplane Shave Cream.This shave cream won the best shave cream in 2007 by Esquire magazine and we know why. Men and ladies alike will love this rich cream for shaving because it will prevent razor bumps, nicks, and those pesky ingrown hairs. It has a nice light cool citrus scent that is a universal crowd pleaser. It is also an excellent buy, as one 8 oz tube can last you for 6 months. For maximum results you will want to apply theBilly Jealousy Hot Towel Pre-Shave Treatmentand combine it with an equal amount of the hydroplane shave. This will soften the hair follicles to make your shave effortless. For men and women who have hair that is less coarse, try the Billy Jealousy Whipped Cream.This gives you more of a lather as opposed to using a regular shaving cream. For the finale you will want to put on the Billy Jealousy Shaved Ice After Shave Balm.This treatment also works great for sunburn skin and post waxing because of its soothing benefits.
Aside from award winning shave products Bill Jealousy offers excellent face treatments and body products as well. One product that is offered called Billy Jealousy Sucker Punch Face Scrubis a must try.This product is 100% organic and can be used a few times per week for an excellent exfoliation. You can use this product before you shave and the mixture of volcanic black sand, walnut shell, and alumina will lift away dead skin cells and dirt. This product also contains antioxidants to protect your skin and improve elasticity. While were talking anti aging we should mention Billy Jealousy About Face Anti-Aging Serum.This serum contains glycolic acid to help with fine lines and skin discoloration. It also has immune system boosting Echinacea extract, and aloe to moisturize and restore the pH levels in your skin. This serum is priced very well for an anti aging serum at only $48.00 for a 1 oz bottle.
A great body wash to try would be the Billy Jealousy Ocean Front Body Wash.We loved the smell of this one. It had an intoxicating citrus and bergamot smell that left your skin smelling clean and fresh. This body wash also contains salicylic acid, so it works great for people who struggle with break outs on the body area. It’s also beneficial for men who want soft body hair because it contains panthenol to strengthen and condition hair.
These are just a few samples of the line that you may like. We enjoyed all of the products for the refreshing scents and the entertaining names. Billy Jealousy may be a fun and trendy line, but it looks like it is here to stay.

One of my favorite cleansers has to be the Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel. I am not sure if it’s the smell of the product, or the results I get when I use this product that I like best, but it’s truly amazing.
It contains all the essential ingredients that an effective cleanser should have. It has glycolic and salicylic acid to exfoliate the skin and provide a deep pore cleansing experience. Citrus extracts for brightening and antioxidants to keep my skin healthy and radiant. This harmonic blend will help increase cell turnover to help to appearance of fine lines wrinkles and dull skin.

We all need to wear sunscreen no matter what our skin type is or time of year it may be. Oily or break out prone skin types sometimes have a hard time finding a good moisturizer with SPF that won’t make them feel more oily and won’t aggravate their acne prone skin. Boscia has just developed an oil free moisturizing sunscreen that will help protect and heal your skin, while address anti-aging concerns.
The botanical formula is comprised of a physical sunscreen that will help to protect your skin from environmental damage while also preventing collagen breakdown which causes damage and photo aging to our skin. One key ingredient called abyssine will help to further protect the skin while providing soothing benefits to address inflammation and irritation. The BB cream also has anti-aging benefits because it will help to promote skin elasticity, while reducing the appearance of fine lines with an ingredient called Hydroxyprolisilane. Hydroxyprolisilane is tissue regenerator that helps to stimulate, strengthen, and protect collagen and elastin fibers. The Boscia BB cream is also hydrating but will not clog your pores due to the oil free formula.
The BB cream has a slight tint to it, which will work for most skin types and will help to even out skin tone and help to address redness. It also works great as a makeup primer to smooth out the skin and help to diminish the appearance of pores. It’s very important to wear an SPF even if you are oily or acne prone. Please remember that wearing a sunscreen is your best defense against premature skin aging.
