Frugal Snob: Nip + Fab Launches New Body Products

After body wash, body moisturizer is about as low maintenance as any product you apply to your skin gets. The most important factors are that it smells good, absorbs quickly, moisturizes effectively, and doesn’t break the bank (at least I don’t want to spend the bulk of my beauty budget on either body cream or body moisturizer).

That’s exactly why a few years ago a number of them started using plastic exfoliating beads in their facial and body scrubs – versus natural products like coffee grounds or nuts.

Lierac Magnificence Eyes Precision Eye Care

Time and time again we’re told to treat the delicate skin around our eyes in a gentle manner. Unfortunately sometimes when you’re half asleep applying your eye cream at 6AM with no time to spare can be easier said than done, which is why I love eye products that don’t require actually touching your eye area.

I’ve spent my entire life chasing the perfect tan. Growing up in a typical Chinese household, I was told to never get dark. White skin is a sign of beauty…yada yada yada.
