I’m sending out the Fashion Pulse Flash early this week, as there are a few things that are simply too good to hold off on…trust me, you need to know!
As a kid in the ’80s, I was never all that into Barbie, but Jem…Jem was my jam! I loved that doll, that spirit, and thought everything about her was just so cool; she commanded a presence in my life literally and figuratively, since she towered over the Barbies in stature. The memories of Jem flooded back when I first heard of the movie coming out, and even though it is 35 years after the show started, I still feel like I want to indulge in something Jem-like. My beloved Shopbop has launched a limited-edition, multi-designer capsule collection of Jem-inspired items from brands such as Wildfox, Flash Tattoos, Vita Fede, Tamara Mellon, and S’Well, ranging from $20-$1,045, and although I may be an adult now, I still can appreciate some Jem apparel and accessories in my life!
In fact, I’ve got my eye on this sweatshirt, and may very well get it today, since the Shopbop Friends & Family event is going on right now! Use code “INTHEFAM25” today through Friday, October 16th, 2:55am EST, for 25% off! Some exclusions apply, but all in all, this is an AMAZING sale you won’t want to miss !
I recently tested a super fun option when it comes to cleansing bars: a two-for-one customizable bar that exfoliates on one side, and moisturizes on the other. These Marie Ernst soaps can be pushed together and used on the various parts of the body that need some softness, or a little pumice budge to remove impurities and dry skin. The all natural bars include essential oils for moisturizing and aroma, are hypoallergenic and paraben free. The bars can be mixed and matched in order to find the combination that you’ll love. See the brand’s website for additional ordering and pricing info.
I’ve never tried the Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Moisture Hydra Plus Body Milk until now, and I’ve got to be honest: this is some GOOD stuff! With a bit of a scent and super quick absorbing tendencies, it goes on like butter, which makes sense, since it has Shea and cocoa butter in it. You’ll also find cacao, oat, honey, and almond extracts, probiotic yogurt, and almond and coconut oils in it, guaranteeing supreme hydrating efficiency. Plus the 16.2 fl oz bottle is only $12; can it get any better than that? Only if you add in the brand’s Rich & Famous Super Creamy Dual-Use Shower & Bath Body Wash, also at 16.2 fl oz, for $10! Available at Ulta stores and online at Ulta.com
Just call Karuna the sheet mask master, as the brand’s new body collection definitely hits a note with much-desired items that have been missing from the market and provide fast and easy nourishing skin benefits from the comfort of your home. It’s as good of a treatment as you would give to your face, but now available for your hands and feet. Recently launched are the Age-Defying+ Hand Mask, Hydrating+ Hand Mask, and Exfoliating + Foot Mask, which include rich ingredients such as Shea butter, jojoba oil, camellia oil, avocado oil, and more for visible results in 20 minutes. It’s a great activity to wind down your day with, while reading a book or watching TV, and each packet can be purchased individually at $9.50-$10.50, or for a set of four from $32-$38 at Ulta, KarunaSkin.com, and Sephora.
