I have it!  Clinique’s new Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush, but first a bit of clarification: unlike the Clarisonic, there aren’t any sonic vibrations when you use this brush.  It’s a misnomer, because although the brush does vibrate, it’s not at a sonic frequency. That said, it’s still made a huge difference to my skin […]

DOVE’S ONE SHOWER CHALLENGE

Here’s the thing about Dove’s new body wash: it really is the richest, thickest, most intensive one that I’ve ever tried and that’s why it’s so amazing.

New! Softlips Cube Review

All I remember, when I think of Softlips, is how it was the thing, in junior high. Makeup was a little beyond me and my friends, so our fashion currency of choice was lip balms, and at the top of the totem pole was always Softlips because they were packaged in a pretty, slim container and […]
