L'Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium Group Shot

L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium

The last time I used a L’Oreal hair product I felt like I was washing my hair with Tide. It was a soapy, overly-lathered, big mess…the products also kind of smelled like Tide. At about $3.99 for a shampoo and conditioner you can’t really complain, but needless to say it was not an experience I want to replicate.

Emily & Tony's Double Duty Aromatherapy Massage Oil Candles

Emily & Tony’s Double Duty Aromatherapy Massage Oil Candles

Apparently National Relaxation Day falls in August (oddly it’s on a weekday so not sure how relaxing it will be for most, but let’s roll with it…), and so in its honor why not treat yourself (and your hubby/boyfriend) to one of Emily & Tony’s Aromatherapy Massage Oil Candles?

Maple Water: The New Coconut Water

Way back when I had no concept of what a calorie was I used to DRINK Vermont Maple Syrup…like straight out of the bottle. Tina was a little more sophisticated than I was…she would mix maple syrup with snow, which is kind of, sort of what the new trend to hit retail shelves in the U.S. is – maple water.

Shaveworks The Cool Fix: Help Treat and Prevent Ingrowns

In terms of harmless but aggravating beauty annoyances that most women have to deal with on a regular basis, ingrowns, after breakouts, are pretty much on top.
