Five Beauty Products to Use After a Sleepless Night


Suppose you’ve just gotten up from a sleepless night. It could have been due to a bad head-cold, or to anxiety over an impending deadline, or to noisy neighbors. No matter what the cause, you might be looking a bit wan and weary.

Product Review: LUSH Curly Wurly Conditioning Shampoo


As much as I love LUSH’s body lotions, fragrances, lip balms, and other assorted product collections, I’ve never had much luck with their haircare. Sea Spray Hair Mist is one exception; Curly Wurly Conditioning Shampoo is another. It’s a shampoo designed for, yes, curly hair, and it’s packed with typically LUSH ingredients like lemon juice, papaya, eggs, several nourishing butters (cocoa, shea, avocado) and lots and lots of real shredded coconut.
