I’ve been quietly working behind the scenes for a few months, and now that it’s officially launched, I can share the exciting news: I hold the title of tastemaker at Twined, a cool new site that reads as a review-based “best of” across a ton of shopping categories, like art supplies, baby products, beauty and cosmetics, fitness, sporting goods, kitchen, home goods, photography and more! Each product on the site is recommended and thoroughly reviewed by a tastemaker, highlighting the unique characteristics of each product, and what may make it superior or distinct from others in the same tier. You can click to buy the items through Twined, which is also building out the option of a discount on the item, based on the interest expressed in it and the number of those purchasing it. So you get a highly recommended item, and at a discount? Sounds like a win-win, right?
Check out my tastemaker profile, here, where you can sign up for notifications when I post a new review. Currently, you can read my two beauty reviews/recommendations for an eyelash curler and a clipless curling iron. Happy Shopping!
Jane Iredale always shows a well-edited wearable color and skincare collection each season, and this fall isn’t any different! Available starting in August, the Ready to Wear lineup includes seven shades of the soft, creamy, and hydrating PlayOn Lip Crayon (pictured above, $18), and four new shades of the PurePressed Eye Shadow Singles (in steamy, iris, mermaid, and forest; $19 each). Totally new to the brand is the Smooth Affair for Oily Skin Facial Primer & Brightener ($48) which fights blemishes and clogged pores, and the wand on the PureLash Lengthening Mascara ($24), which is dual-sided with short bristles on one side, and longer on the other, for a more pronounced look. I hope you’re as excited as I am to experiment with this incredible shades and products!
I will take any extra help I can get when it comes to hair and skin health, and being not one to shy away from vitamins, I was thrilled to try out Nature’s Bounty Optimal Solutions Extra Strength Hair, Skin, & Nails formula for editorial consideration. The formula includes hyaluronic acid and the antioxidant vitamins of A, C, and E, and biotin, which all work together to maintain and support skin, hair, nail, and overall immune health. I’d like to think that I’m all about the pill-form, but the fact that this comes in strawberry flavored gummies ($8.79 for 80 ct)…make them too hard to pass up! The hardest part is remembering to take them, so I’ve been leaving the bottle in my top drawer as a reminder to take the designated dose of two each day, and so far, it’s working!
Also available in rapid release liquied soft gel (which is additionally Argan-oil infused) and tablet form, the Nature’s Bounty Optimal Solutions Extra Strength Hair, Skin, & Nails formula can be found at national grocery, drug, and mass retailers nationwide.
