Beauty Test Drive: Julep Luxe Care Hand Creme

I hate to break it to Kim and Kanye, but the word "luxury" is thrown around so much these days that it doesn't mean jack shit. When a beauty product is called "Luxe" or "Luxury," I don't even assume that means it's fancy anymore because you can buy "luxury bath beads" at the Dollar Store.

Beauty Test Drive: Curel Itch Defense Lotion

I was cursed with dry skin. When I was younger, I could literally write on my legs because they were so ashy. And as I've aged, I've developed a slight case of eczema. After years of trying every lotion I could find, I finally developed a regimen that kept my skin moisturized for a day,…
