Sunburns sound bad. I use the word “sound” because although I know brown people can get tans and sunburn (and should still wear spf!), it takes a lot more for us to get sunburned. I have so much empathy because this does not look like fun at all. Never mind how it feels but I’ve had roommates who couldn’t sit or lay down because it would just sting. Lather yourselves up in sunblock peeps, that Sun feels good but it will get you! Perhaps the worst part is that any part of you that is covered becomes some weird geometric shape that you probably have to live with for quite some time. Some people like to get sassy and make designs with their sunscreen which, I admit, can look like super cool henna tattoos. Seriously though, bless your hearts, people who sunburn easy. Bless your hearts. It takes courage and valor to go to the beach when this can happen. See more photos on College Candy…
We love coconut oil! Not only does it taste oh-so-delicious, it’s also super healthy and can be used in place of many conventional body care products. Since we also love the earth and saving money, swapping out coconut oil for traditional products is a no-brainer. From cooking to skincare to hair treatments to mouthwash, the coconut oil possibilities are endless. Buy yourself an industrial-sized tub of it at Costco, and check out the list below for loads of fun ways to use this “magic oil”… Keep reading »
I have always believed the secret to long, “flirty” eyelashes was simply an eyelash curler. I was wrong. It takes an eyelash curler and Benefit’s They’re Real mascara! Keep reading »
I have incredibly sensitive skin, so when it comes to my makeup remover, I rarely stray from my go-to: Clinique’s Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips. But on the day I was scheduled to step into The Frisky studio to test drive Topshop’s Smoky Eye Palette (see it here!), I forgot my beloved makeup remover and found myself panicking. “No fear!” said Jessica. “We just got some new makeup remover you can test drive!” And so I grabbed the Coast To Coast Coastal Ultra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover with wild rosella and calendula and went on my merry way. Note: I did not stay merry for long. Keep reading »
Via Reddit: “My friend was curling her eyelashes while walking and tripped. This happened.” This has been today’s beauty PSA. [Imgur]
I have probably asked every person I know “Do I smell?” or “Want to smell my armpits?” this week. For this week’s Beauty Test Drive, I’ve been taking whiffs of my own pits as frequently as possible. That’s right, mid-Pilates I was caught turning my head to confirm this natural deodorant was actually tackling my B.O.
I can honestly say I have never tried a natural deodorant before, and was skeptical of Lavender + Sage Schmidt’s glass jar. I try to be health conscious, but I have never looked at the ingredient list of my deodorant. I’ve considered the ingredients in my soap, lotion, and makeup … but my deodorant? What could my armpits possibly have to complain about? If it keeps them smelling fresh from dawn to dusk, what more could an armpit ask for? Keep reading »
