Wandering Target is always a dangerous proposition for me, as I never leave with just the thing(s) I went in for. One wandering day I found the Sonia Kashuk Eye Definer. And what a great purchase it was. It creates the perfect line every time, as thin or as thick as you desire. It can take me from daytime classic to evening smokey with just a couple swipes and best of all it doesn’t smudge; even after a killer workout my makeup is entirely intact. And you can’t beat the price!

Gillette-Venus-And-Olay-Razor.jpgWe’re always on the lookout for the next best thing in razors. Even while we’re getting the closest shave imaginable with our current razor, we’re wondering if there’s something better out there. And, with the introduction of the Gillette Venus and Olay Razor to the market, there most certainly is.

The signature 5 blades of Gillette Venus razors combine with Olay moisture bars to give you the softest, smoothest shave imaginable. No shaving cream necessary with this baby—it moistens and conditions the skin while you’re shaving so there are no nicks or drags.

Plus, when you buy the razor, it comes with one cartridge that lasts for at least 6 shaves (though we’ve found we can make it last past 10). It even comes with a shower hook so you can conveniently store it in your shower—though we’ve found that usually the suction cups with these don’t tend to stick too well once the shower wall gets wet.

The Gillette Venus and Olay Razor retails for $8.99 at
I’ve already professed my preference for a certain men’s razor (read why I use the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Shaving Razor, here), but when it comes to my shaving cream, I stick with the feminine variety. I’ve used so many shaving gels and creams over the years that I had lost track and gotten bored, and then I found eos Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream. First of all, the plastic packaging means I won’t have any more rusted can marks in my shower (and yes it’s recyclable). Second, it comes in a great Vanilla Bliss scent, as well as several others. Third, and probably most important, its thin lotion-like consistency actually allows for better control with my razor and yet my shave has never produced smoother skin.

Blackheads don’t discriminate, even girls with dry skin like me, get them. And believe me they’re no easier to get rid of when you have dry skin. The trick is to treating them, usually with a product made specifically to get rid of them. So what’s my go-to, you ask? A brand whose name is to the point, Clean and Clear, and whose product is spot on, Blackhead Eraser Scrub. 

It has the perfect little micro-beads for a deep clean and exfoliation, as well as salicylic acid to help with clearing the actual blackheads. Since my nose is my blackhead spot, I use this a couple times a week to help keep it free of blemishes and clean — It’s safe for everyday use for those who want to dig down deep daily.

Clean and Clear Blackhead Eraser Scrub is available for $4.39 at
I try to get a solid eight hours of sleep a night, but sometimes life just takes over — in good and bad ways. On those days when I haven’t had enough beauty sleep I turn to Say Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel to help with the dark circles under my eyes. I take one small drop and gently rub it into the skin just under my lower lash line, almost immediately I can see the circles start to dissipate. Followed by a quick cup of coffee, I’m usually feeling, and looking, bright-eyed and bushy tailed in no time.
