Fact: if you tell me a beauty product is sold out because of “tons of buzz”, my gotta-have-it meter skyrockets faster than you can say MILF Money. This brings us to my current infatuation: MILK MAKEUP Cooling Water. MILK MAKEUP Cooling Water’s sleek aqua blue tube immediately caught my eye.
I’m a glutton for punishment. I can go months maintaining my skin care regimen AM to PM, then for whatever reason an evil pore-clogging dirt goblin appears and whispers, “You are so very sleepy…Washing your face is for dorks…Let’s eat Spaghettio’s instead!” And

If you had to choose just one word to describe your mom, I bet my Beagle you couldn’t do it. Moms are such complex, multi-faceted humans, it’s impossible to sum up their personality with just a mere adjective. Mama Fox, in particular,

It’s been a minute since Birchbox really wow-ed me with a must-have, must-buy product, but alas, the drought has finally ended with DDF Ultra Lite Moisturizing Dew! This oil-free moisturizer by DDF is my current obsession, and I cannot get
First and foremost, I want to apologize for not taking more pictures of my Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation moisturizer. Every time I thought of taking a few snaps for y’all, I felt this overwhelming urge to apply this silky, whipped
Nightstand essentials vary by season, but since the polar vortex apocalypse hit Chicago, I’ve stocked up on more lotions, creams, and oils than ever to lock in my skin’s ever-dwindling moisture. My winter nightstand essentials are a healthy mix of
