The DIY Root Touch Up Kit You Need Right Now

DPHue Root Touch Up Kit Review

The only thing worse than my nail roots were my grey hairs all over my scalp. For some backstory, I have had grey hair since around my 12th birthday. I started dying my hair Liv Tyler Empire Records era auburn in middle school to mask it, which went well with my Doc Martens and flannels.

The Best Natural Deodorant

Megababe Rosy Pits Deodorant

I am fairly certain that over the course of my past three pregnancies and nursing cycles, I tried every single aluminum free natural deodorant on the market.

For this admitted gel addict, the closure of nail salons was just the tip of the iceberg of mounting stress, uncertainty, and fear surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

Peace Out Microneedling Anti Wrinkle Retinol Patches

I’m nearing a moment many women reach in their thirties: it’s probably time to start getting Botox or Dysport. However, I am slowly stopping nursing, so I have to wait as it is recommended that you pump and dump milk for four days after treatment and that makes so sense to me at the moment for a multitude of reasons. I’ve been looking for methods to smooth things over (hardy har) until the big day arrives. I found Microneedling Anti-Wrinkle…

Honest Review Of Crème de la Mer Moisturizer

La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturizer Review

True life: I tried La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturizer for six weeks straight. I was fed up with my winter skin and decided to pull out all the stops when I had a 30% off coupon.

Winter is a lazy hair lady’s worst nightmare. The sad truth for some of us is that there are some days that are simply to cold to skip the blow dryer.
