BelleCore HoneyBelle Bodybuffer: Cellu-later?

Most reviews of BelleCore’s HoneyBelle Bodybuffer are positively glowing, which is exactly what your skin will be doing once you’ve tried this.

Baby Foot Easy Pack: Heal from Heels

I’ll admit it – I don’t treat my feet very well. High heels have been a staple for me since college and that’s not going to change anytime soon. No amount of pedicures or magic potions even begins to tackle the rough patches on my heels and the balls of my feet. I’ve finally found […]

My showers clock in at record time. I can shampoo and condition my hair, wash my body, and clean my face in two minutes flat, but I’m always looking for ways to beat my own time. Just as Olympic runners cut down on their records with the help of the best gear, so I will […]

WAX Santa Monica: House of Wax

When it comes to waxing, especially bikini waxing, you have to go to a professional. If you try it at home and end up with a horrendous yet hilarious experience, you only have yourself to blame. But even at salons there are vastly different methods used, so I suggest going somewhere that specializes in waxing, […]

Farmhouse Fresh Goods: Backcountry Beauty

The farm to table ideas comes to beauty (so I guess it’s farm to bathroom?). I just discovered this line, and now I want to buy everything they make. The natural ingredients come straight from their farm, so there are no chemicals. All of the products are even vegan and gluten free. And the scents […]

Yes To Grapefruit: No Reservations

The popular Yes To skincare brand has expanded its carrot, cucumber, tomato, and blueberry lineup, now selling grapefruit-scented products (it was about time we got some fruitier aromas!). They have everything you need from the start to the finish of your facial skincare routine, starting with a daily scrub ($8.49) – it exfoliates well but […]
