Drugstore Diva: Bethenny Frankel Introduces Skinnygirl Skincare for Face & Body!

How can you miss reality star turned supermogul Bethenny Frankel?  First she was an author making her mark in the publishing industry with several popular self help books.  Then when she started making her self described skinnygirl margarita on the BRAVO TV reality series The Real Housewives of New York City…EVERYONE wanted one (the recipe is still my margarita of choice).  Then the unthinkable…she quit the show. Just as everyone counted Ms. Frankel out, she launched the Skinnygirl brand of pre-mixed margaritas for a mere $14.95 per bottle (I mean, come on…a cocktail in NYC is $14) and got her own deal with BRAVO to do a show.  The bottles of Skinnygirl margarita were so popular that there were distribution problems at one point.  She developed more versions (a white cranberry cosmo and sangria) all with the same natural low calorie approach.  Then she eventually sold the brand to Fortune Brands Inc.’s Beam Global for an estimated $120 million making her one of the most profitable reality stars in TV history.  Thats a lot to do in a few years right???

Well, Bethenny is now setting her sites on personal care. With a growing empire of videos, supplements and even a cleanse it only makes sense that she would foray into the world of beauty.  Skinnygirl Face & Body is a line with natural ingredients like shea butter and cranberry and fresh scents that mimic her Skinnygirl cocktails.  The good news?  The pricetag that is very easy on the wallet without sacrificing quality (all items are under a mere $15!). With this combination, she is poised to have another hit on her hand.  I tried to find more of it in Walmart (where it is exclusively sold) and it was GONE. The collection is organized into four groups: lip treatments, face solutions, body solutions and gift sets. There’s also a Skinnygirl Mommy collection which could be a godsend for stay at home mommies that want to save money, feel pretty and keep those stretch marks in check!

“I wanted to develop a line that accomplishes what every woman wants for every day and night – smooth, moisturized skin with a healthy glow and lips that are kissable and soft. Affordability, convenience, effectiveness and consistency is what’s most important and what Skinnygirl Face & Body is all about.”

Frankel’s “this is what real life is all about” philosophy has served her well, as the american public connects with her vibe of being honest and up front about what the average american woman struggles with.
