Wrinkle Reducing Products

When we're young, we take our flawless skin for granted, never considering that what we do early on will affect us when we're older. We try to rush things, like wearing makeup (and always forgetting to take it off), skip things like sunscreen and make poor choices like smoking. Read more

Favorite Black Eyeliners

There's something that a black eyeliner conveys that brown or even brightly colored or metallic eyeliners can't duplicate. Black says bold, daring, classic, sexy.

Clean George Chill Out Stick Review

Nourish Organic Raw Shea Butter Review

Nourish #Organic Raw Shea ButterSince moving to California, my skin has faced its share of challenges trying to acclimate to a much drier climate than I was used to in Miami.  My usual moisturizers have just not been able to live up to the challenge, even the moisturizers that got me through the driest winters in Minnesota have fallen short.  Not wanting to go through summer with dry, scaly skin I opted to give pure shea butter a try.  Normally I would not use pure shea butter on my skin in the summer.
