What We’re Sweet On: A Face Massage in a Jar – Bellasugar

Why we love it: We love when bloggers love our products as much as we do. Recognition is a good thing! “Face massage in a jar” should probably be our new tagline. Hmmmm….

Secrets of Ageless Women – Harpers Bazaar

Why we love it: It’s fascinating to hear what (famous) women do to look young and beautiful. My favorites were Jamie Tisch (because Refine is my favorite workout too!), Donna Karan (I agree that what you eat makes a huge difference) and Linda Rodin (because rocking gray hair and pink lipstick is awesome).

Worth it: Shine Without Grease – Jezebel

Why we love it: I actually read this last week, and the next day at the end of my morning run I stopped at the drug store and picked this product up. Considering I’ve got tons of similar products, that should say a lot about how much I liked this article! I used it that same morning and I agree 100% with the article! My hair was shiny and very soft to the touch, not at all sticky.  I love how one great review can convert anybody!

Were critics sexist about The Hunger Games? – Fit-a-licious

Why we love it: We all know I love The Hunger Games, and I was surprised to hear about the criticism. While I did think that Jennifer Lawrence didn’t look as starving as she probably could have, it is unfair to hold her to a standard but not hold the boys who played Peeta and Gale to the same scrutiny.

Really. See More Articles by Dori
