Review: Nurse Jamie’s Instant Uplift Face Massaging Wand

Can a face massage actually combat fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin? The short answer is yes, yes it can. While we’ve been inundated with a variety of nip-and-tuck procedures, lasers, ultra-sounds, anti-aging creams, and other such gizmos and gadgets that promise a more youthful complexion, it seems as though the age-old secret face massage has gotten lost in the mix. We first discussed this simple, painless, and affordable treatment here, highlighting the Tatcha Akari Gold Face Massager tool and how to give yourself a five minute, anti-aging facial massage. If you’ve been keeping up on the daily, then your complexion is likely a few years younger (fist pump to you!).

Nailing It With These Summer Mani Trends

A famous drag queen once said, “If you’re not doing nails, you’re not doing drag. ” We can’t speak on how true this statement is for the drag community, but we agree that a complete beauty routine involves an enviable mani, too.

Luxury Brands That Are Changing The Vegan Skincare Game

When I was in college over 12 years ago, veganism looked like this: waif-thin, black-rimmed glasses, hardcore band T-shirts, tattoo sleeves and sometimes a very militant attitude to put the image over the edge. As a vegetarian at the time, I certainly had respect for the vegans I knew for having the conviction to eschew any and all animal products. But it definitely felt radical, even to someone as progressive as myself. In those days, the lifestyle had everything to do with politics and, for the most part, very little to do with clean eating and skin care.

Friday Link Love

I just heard the news that Estee Lauder’s millennial-driven line, Edit, is coming to an end. If you’re like me, you’re probably like, “what line?” Yeah. And then I was like, “oh right, the line promoted by Kendall Jenner!” I remember receiving a press package when it first debuted but don’t recall being enamored with any of the products. You can read the full brand statement here.

You can tell that summer has officially begun when your social media feeds are inundated with words like “melting” and “it’s too hot. ” We wait 10 months for the season of sunshine, then, when it arrives, we complain.
