Here's a few back to school freebies, including one for
teachers! If your a teacher Staples is giving out free gift bags
with bonus coupons to the first 100 teachers at each store. Check
the link for the date in your area for Staples Teacher Appreciation Day. I've posted this
next freebie before but I want to remind everyone about it. For the
entire month of August, JCPenney's is offering free haircuts to all kids K - 6th grade.
Appointments are recommended. The free haircuts are available at
all JCP Salons in the USA.
It's hard to
believe – but some cosmetic companies still test their products on
animals. And plenty of companies still use chemicals and fillers in
their cosmetics even though organic, cruelty-free alternatives exist.
when I found out that my makeup was full of chemicals once tested on
bunnies, I decided to make the switch to cruelty-free natural cosmetics.
Here are some of my favorite brands.
Everyone loves getting beauty products as gifts--I know I do. With the holidays coming up, I also like to give them. But shopping for beauty gifts for your loved ones can be tough, especially if their taste tends to go towards the higher-end of things.
Read on for some ways you can get some of the top brands at discounted prices. You might even be able to score some goodies for yourself--now that's my kind of "gift-giving."
Now that summer is gone, the tan that you've worked so hard on will eventually be too. Getting a spray tan is a quick solution to keeping you looking sun-kissed, but it can be a challenge maintaining it. Depending on where you go, average costs of spray tans are usually around $25 to $60--and sometimes can even be up to $100. If you've decided to opt-in for a fabulous airbrush tan, prolonging it is essential for making the most out of each session and the money you spend.
Here are some tips for getting the best spray tan and making it last:
I love taking baths, and there's nothing like adding in some
luxurious bath salts to help your body detoxify and relax. I
can't bring myself to spend the $15 on the pre-packaged bath salts,
so I figured out how to make my own! It's very easy, will
help your health, and you'll save money over buying them.
Plus, they are so customizable that you can make your very own
mix. I love to give bath salts for gifts.
I recently learned that The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) does not authorize FDA to approve cosmetic ingredients (except color additives that are not coal-tar hair dyes), and that cosmetic manufacturers can pretty much put whatever they want into their products, except the few that have been prohibited. The next time you head to the drugstore to pick up your favorite lotion, face cream, or any other beauty product, you might want to take a look at the ingredients list. The list is usually quite long and most of the ingredients you probably can't pronounce.
