I Tried This Korean Facial Hair Remover & It Actually Kind Of Worked

With so many “miracle” hair removal methods out there, it’s hard to keep track of which ones actually work. Between waxing, threading, laser, shaving, sugar scrubbing (you get the picture) — there’s pretty much an option out there for everyone.

With all of the other adulting you have to do in your everyday life, finding time (and funding) for a regular mani/pedi isn't always easy. And sure, your nails don't exactly look amazing after a month or two, but the real issue with avoiding regular foot and hand care is that the skin around your nails starts to suffer, too.

9 Multi-Functional Jewelry Pieces That Will Amaze You

Our jewelry is basically our armor. It can update an outfit, make a statement (like, "Hey, world! I'm engaged!") and give us all a little bit of bling-induced confidence when we need it most. But as amazing as jewelry can be on its own, some pieces go way above and beyond with two-for-one functions that will blow your mind. Enter: Multi-furpose jewelry. Sure, a necklace is great and pretty and whatever… but a necklace that doubles as a vibrator? Or as a full-blown weapon? Now, we’re talking. Th…

7 Makeup Products That Are Good For Your Skin

These days, makeup isn't just meant for covering skin "imperfections" anymore. If that were the case, things like Unicorn Highlighter and chocolate-scented eyeshadow probably wouldn't exist.

This App Is Trying To Change The Way We Treat Acne

According to Dermatologist Dr. Shari Hicks-Graham, …
