I recently posted a fun Instagram asking followers what advice they would give their younger selves. The most popular response? “USE SUNSCREEN!” I can definitely relate.
Razors have been getting a lot of attention lately thanks to this article in New York Magazine and while I will agree that a rotating razor seems like a gimmick and that I am always surprised at just how expensive my refills are ($26ish for 8 new cartridges?!), there are some new developments worth getting behind in the realm of razors, one of which will actually save you money.
I’ll resist the urge to make some hemp-related joke as the truth is hemp and hempseed oil in particular make for fantastic skincare ingredients! Hempseed oil is very high in omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids so they’ll help to moisturize, but also nourish your skin. The Body Shop Hemp Range is a fantastic frugal way to get those benefits.
Somehow it feels like every week a different friend of mine is going through some sort of a crisis! Whether career issues, boyfriend issues, family issues…I find myself putting together care packages more often than I can recount. I’m always looking for fun things that will put a smile on someone’s face and that’s where lines like Be Delectable come in.
I’m one of those people who only gets “tanned” when she misses a patch of skin and accidentally gets burned first. While I love the sun I always shield myself from it to prevent both wrinkles and burns. I wish I could tan; maybe it’s because the grass is always greener on the other side, but tan people seem to have it so much easier than us pale girls!
I have no fewer than ten products lining my tub right now. It’s gotten so bad that when my husband and son shower, they have no idea what to use. I’m always trying new shampoos, conditioners, masks, and oils, but I just discovered something that covers all the bases – Transforming Hair Cleanser No. 724.
Let’s get one thing out of the way…there is NO cream that is going to make your arms skinnier. Trust me, if there was such a magic potion it would be all over the news. That doesn’t mean it’s hopeless, however! In addition to diet and exercise, there are body products that can help enhance your physique like Bliss’ fatgirlslim armcandy (at Bliss for $38).
For anyone on a budget looking for beauty products to skimp on, the first thing to do is stop buying expensive body wash because drugstore ones are great. Hands down the best, in my opinion, has always been Dove. Their line of moisturizing washes don’t have a thick detergent-like lather, but rather a smooth and soft one and, just like its name indicates, the formulation is moisturizing.
There are countless face creams that fight dark spots, but I rarely see any body creams that fight them. I love all Yes to products; I’ve tried dozens of them and have yet to come across one that isn’t effective, so I was intrigued by Yes to Grapefruit spot correcting body cream.
