My New Obsession: Scented Shea Butter

SCENTED WHIPPED SHEA BUTTER

I am absolutely obsessed with scented whipped shea butter. Ever since I discovered the shea butters from PerfumeChick.com, I have been on a quest to find as many brands as possible to try out.

My quest has so far led me to Amazon, where I purchased a patchouli scent from a company called Shea ScentSations, Etsy, where I purchased two wonderful scents from the Lovely Body company, and Belle Butters, where I purchased a Warm Vanilla scent that is advertised as being both for the body and the hair.

CLEANSE BY LAUREN NAPIER

On a flight from Dubai to New York City, celebrity makeup artist LAUREN NAPIER found herself trapped in a window seat. Unable to leave her seat to refresh her face, she was struck with an idea that would change how we cleanse our skin, on the go: “I was delirious from nearly 30 hours in transit, I wanted to freshen up my face, but I couldn’t.
