Meaning, they can slap a “healthy” label onto a bottle and then put nearly any chemical they wish into the product. And, according to the video, there are probably tons of toxins in your body right now. Ahh! [Story of Stuff] Keep reading »

Men Go Matte So As To Appear “In Control”?

The latest in metrosexual men’s beauty trends: mattifying beauty products. For ladies, matte beauty products are often a choice of aesthetics, especially in summer.
