I’ve been using a face oil by True Botanicals every day for a year. Its effect is dramatic enough that when I run out or miss a few days while traveling, my skin visibly feels it (hi, dry patches!).… Read more

i have this and it works pretty well! you're supposed to do it twice a day for an entire month which i haven't done yet but it does seem to work!
Having white teeth is a scam, but I still want them anyway. Ever since my preferred whitening strips were discontinued a couple of years ago, I’ve been on the lookout for something that fulfills my needs of both working and not sucking, and I think I’ve finally found it.
Here’s the deal: Products like Crest White Strips can strip enamel and leave your teeth really sensitive to cold and heat, and the effects of those laser lights the Kardashians plug on Instagram seem psychosomatic at best. What you’re left with options-wise after that is stuff like brushing baking soda and hydrogen peroxide onto your teeth, or elective whitening treatments at your dentist’s office, and who has that kind of time and expendable income? So these past couple years I’ve been brushing and flossing and making due with my natural tooth color, but it turns out I’m an idiot.
After filling my Amazon cart with my usual trash last week, I noticed their recommendations rail had something promising in it: charcoal tooth-whitening powder. Customers like me often pair it with some of the items I’d already purchased, so I clicked around to see what the deal is, and you guys—every single one of them is satisfied. The reviews were all positive. There was testimonial after testimonial about how easy the product was to use, and picture after picture of someone’s coffee-stained Before teeth right alongside their less-stained After teeth. I know what paid Amazon reviews look like, fam, and these were not them.
Since the price point was low (less than $20 when a box of White Strips will set you back $30+, easy), I ordered the powder then and there. As you can see from the picture, there’s not much to the product itself—it’s like someone took a bunch of charcoal sticks from your high school art classroom, ground them up, and is selling them online. The brand I purchased has only four ingredients*, so there’s no secret science for it to hide behind. Apparently putting charcoal on your bones just whitens them. Sick.
The application process goes as follows:
That’s all! That’s the whole deal!
And hey, I’m not your doctor. Who knows what’s best for you? All I’m gonna say is that you’re allowed to scrub charcoal dust all over your teeth if you want to, and when you do, they might just get cleaner and whiter.

Not a perfect pop album but a very good one. Also wow wasn't "My Love" such a great track.
i will always share/reog this
i'm obsessed with this dress
Emma Stone attends the opening ceremony and premiere of “La La Land” during the 73rd Venice Film Festival at Sala Grande in Venice, Italy.
WOW! Has Miss Emma been on a style roll every since she disembarked in Venice? Because this color looks amazing on her! The sparkle is just right for —
We think she may have lost us with the skirt, but everything from the waist up is pretty great. This may not be a hundred percent to our tastes, but it’s still a pretty good look, making for two in a row. She’s not always, shall we say, consistent in her red carpet style choices, but we’re digging her sudden embrace of Italian designers. They seem to be doing right by her.
No cat owner would ever consider wearing this dress.

Beyoncé attends the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Oh, thank GOD. The VMAs happened and now we have a ton of crazy-ass couture to talk about. Thank you, music video stars of the world. You have done God’s work here.
And speaking of which…
Let us first stipulate that, when she was given the stage all to herself, Bey reached up into the rafters of Madison Square Garden and pulled the whole damn thing to the ground. It was a performance for the ages. They’ll be talking about that one a decade from now.
Having said that, and risking retribution from the hive, we have to follow up with:
Come on now. If Fraggle Rock had drag queens, this is what they’d look like. Also: Barbie crotch is never chic. Reconsider any future plans for its deployment.
Blue Ivy is adorable, of course. She will cherish the memories of this night, when she got to be a princess and mommy got to call daddy a cheating sack of shit on live TV.

Zachary Quinto attends the press conference of “Star Trek Beyond” at Indigo Mall in Beijing, China.
That’s better than anything we’ve seen him wear on a red carpet in years. Why did he save it for a press conference? Especially since it doesn’t look very comfortable when he’s sitting. It’s definitely a stand-and-pose outfit.
Sure, he looks a little bit like a bellhop, but we’ll take that over looking like an accountant or Secret Service agent any day of the week. If there’s anything we’d quibble with, it’s the matching shirt. That’s what takes it to “uniform.”
