Shoppers Say This Hydrating Treatment Makes Them Look 20 Years Younger


Naked dresses are perhaps the most impressive of all red carpet feats. While they may not always make the best-dressed list, they do require a certain breed of celebrity to pull off. Not only do you have to have the balls to risk a wardrobe malfunction, but you have to do it with enough confidence that you look fierce — not terrified — in the photographs. Take Naomi Campbell’s appearance in Valentino’s couture show during the spring/summer 2019 presentation. The legendary model gracefully strutted down the runway in a see-through gown with a ruffle skirt. (Click through the gallery for the NSFW photo).

Breaking news, relationship updates, hairstyle inspo, fashion trends, and more direct to your inbox! Let’s not forget Rihanna’s infamous CFDA dress either. The girl rocked a completely sheer dress without a bra — and later remarked that her only regret was not wearing a bedazzled thong to match. That, my friends, is dedication. Then, there was the year 2015, when the Met Gala saw not one nor two but three naked dresses on the red carpet, all worn by Hollywood’s hottest A-listers. Jennifer Lopez, above, bared her famous curves in a custom Atelier Versace illusion gown. Beyoncé was nearly naked in Givenchy. And Kim Kardashian West almost looked modest in comparison in her sheer Roberto Cavalli dress, because no one’s getting naked without KKW joining in.

5 Answers: United Way shopping fundraiser Wednesday


Individuals can drop by the office, donate $75, receive a large bag and can fill it to the brim with QVC skin care, hair care and makeup products. The only stipulations are shoppers must be able to carry the bag by its handles and products cannot be taken out of their boxes.

United Way of Florence County President Cameron Packett and QVC Distribution Center General Manager Shad Hargrove were having conversations about working together to make a positive impact on the community. Soon after, Shad reached out and said QVC would like to make a large donation of products. At first, the United Way wasn’t exactly sure what to do with the products – these were luxury items rather than necessities. Ultimately, the United Way and QVC worked together to come up with a creative idea. Shop for A Good Cause enables members of the community to donate to United Way in exchange for a bag to fill with QVC skincare, haircare and makeup products. It has become a way to spread awareness, engage volunteers, partner in new ways with a local industries and drive donations.

Country Star Orville Peck Buys L.A. Cabin Once Owned By Mamie Gummer


Musician Orville Peck has picked up a house that perfectly suits his contemporary country sensibilities in the Hollywood Hills, according to Dirt. Sources say the masked crooner paid $1.9 million to Jennifer Nicholson (Jack Nicholson’s daughter) for the three bedroom, three bathroom space, although a rep for Peck could not confirm that he did buy the house. Nicholson isn’t the only other notable figure who’s lived on the property—she purchased the home from actress and daughter of Meryl Streep Mamie Gummer (you may have seen her on The Good Fight and True Detective), who bought it from model and cosmetics entrepreneur Josie Maran. Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante previously lived there as well.

The 1,694 square foot rustic-style home is dripping in wood both inside and out. Indoors, earth tones abound with wood window sills and trim, plus terracotta tiled floor and built in reclaimed wood cabinetry. The kitchen manages to stay faithful to the outback energy with a wood front refrigerator, a farmhouse sink, copper countertops, and an antique O’Keefe and Merritt stove.

Outdoors, in the shadow of the wood-paneled home and amongst the views provided by its hillside locale, there’s a large built in bench that’s perfect for entertaining around the stone fire pit. On the other side of the exterior, another built in seating area surrounds a dining table built around a mature tree and adjacent to a barbecue station. The house is surrounded by trees, making it feel like an escape to the woods while also allowing for plenty of privacy from neighbors. Along with the bedrooms, the top floor of the home serves as an art or recording studio, making it a perfect fit for “Dead of Night” singer Peck.

The 9 Best Light Body Creams Of 2022 For Hydrated Skin


Struggling to find a body cream or lotion you enjoy is a real Goldilocks scenario, huh? On the one hand, if you go too dense for your liking you run the risk of feeling like a sticky, goopy mess. On the other, if it’s too light for your skin’s needs, it’s simply not going to hydrate well or long term. Yikes. Now where you fall on this skin care spectrum is probably dependent on a few skin care factors: What time of year it is, where you live, your skin type, your personal sensorial preferences, and your lifestyle (i.e., do you loathe to apply products, or do you do a 10-step-routine every morning?). As you can see, a lot goes into finding the one that suits you just right.

Now, a light body cream or lotion tends to meet a lot of needs. The slip is just so that it smooths over skin with ease. The texture is rich, yet spreadable. The hydration is turned up to the max, without leaving a greasy residue. Plus, many of these options below come with added bonuses—whether that be soothing scents, antioxidant protections, or firming actives.

If this sounds like your preferred sensorial experience, check out the list below—plus, what the options can do that adds a little extra.

Are body lotions with SPF effective?

Two words: Hell yes! Not only will they moisturize your skin—considering a ton are packed with a slew of nourishing, skin-loving ingredients (i.e., antioxidants, vitamins, hyaluronic acid)—but they can also be used as your body’s daily sun protectant. (FYI, don’t forget a facial sunscreen.)

Josie Maran’s Argan Milk Gave Me Dewy, Bouncy Skin Overnight


Josie Maran’s Pure Argan Milk was gentle on my sensitive skin and gave me dewy, bouncy skin after just one use. If your skin needs an extra boost, too, this vitamin- and antioxidant-packed “pre-serum” treatment may be able to do the trick.

We put the Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk to the test after receiving a complimentary sample from the brand. Keep reading for our full product review.

Argan oil has been on my radar for quite some time now. Extracted from the kernels of the fruit of the argan tree, which grows in Morocco, it is fatty acid- and antioxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory, and moisturizing. It’s a real complexion companion, you might say. Despite all of these qualities, I haven’t used it all that much (the oil I’ve been using lately contains sanoma leaf oil, also a strong choice).

That’s why when I was tasked with reviewing Josie Maran’s Pure Argan Milk—a cult favorite among many of my friends and colleagues—I was willing and ready. The brand centers its full lineup around argan oil, and this product in particular reimagines the way the ingredient can work by mixing it with purified water for a pre-serum of sorts that hydrates and nourishes in multiple ways. So did this argan milk live up to its reputation and show me why so many people swear by the nutrient-rich oil? Keep reading for my full review.

Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk Best for: Any skin type, especially dry or sensitive. Uses: A hydrating and nourishing pre-serum treatment that preserves elasticity and reveals a refreshed, healthy glow. Potential allergens: Not likely Hero ingredient: Argan oil Byrdie Clean? Yes Price: $56 About the brand: Josie Maran is a cruelty-free clean beauty brand with an assortment of products centered around 100% argan oil. Founded in 2007 by the model and actress of the same name, the line emphasizes fair trade practices and finds innovative ways to use its star ingredient, such as in sunscreens and alongside CBD.

About My Skin: Normal to combination, sensitive, and sometimes dull

I have normal to combination skin and though I don’t experience significant oiliness or dryness on a regular basis, I’m very sensitive and prone to redness (as you may notice in my photos). My skin has been on a good kick lately in terms of no acne breakouts, but it’s been feeling dull and in need of a boost.

The Feel: Lightweight and absorbs easily

Nicole Kliest

Josie Maran’s Pure Argan Milk comes in a small bottle, and you dispense it using a small dropper. It looks—unsurprisingly—like milk, but has a thicker consistency while remaining lightweight. I massage around five drops onto my face day and night and it absorbs into the skin seamlessly, with no grease in sight.

The Ingredients: Pure and powerful

Without using chemical emulsifiers, a high-speed machine mixes 100 percent pure argan oil and purified water together to create Josie Maran’s Pure Argan Milk. Maran refers to this product as a “pre-serum," or something to apply on a cleansed face before your serums and the rest of your skincare lineup. This is because the product’s microdroplets of argan oil can penetrate further and hydrate more deeply in that order.

Naturally, the key ingredients in this treatment are 100% pure argan oil and purified water—simple and effective. Expect plump, nourished skin.

The Results: Dewy and plump skin overnight

Nicole Kliest/Design by Cristina Cianci

I’ve tried countless skincare products so I have to admit that I’ve become slightly pessimistic about anything making a huge difference in my complexion, but wow, this treatment really noticeably rejuvenated my skin. After applying this at night, the next morning I awoke to a bouncy, plump, and dewy face. My skin reacted well, and now Josie Maran’s Pure Argan Milk is likely to be with me forever.

The Value: Worth it if you’re dry or sensitive

Here’s the thing: $56 is not cheap. However, if your skin is dry, sensitive, or simply in need of a reboot and you have the budget to add this to your beauty cabinet, I highly recommend it. The bottle contains 1 oz. of product and since you’re only using between 3-5 drops each time, it should last a few months. That, and the quality of the ingredients is unbeatable.

Similar Products: You’ve got options

Faace Sweaty Faace Mask: This argan oil-infused mask ($35) is one of my all-time favorites. Every time I use it, my skin consistently looks fresh and revitalized afterwards. In addition to argan oil, the product has grapefruit, bergamot, galbanum, and patchouli.

Glory M.S. Argan Booster Oil: This cold-pressed argan oil ($28) is rich in vitamins A & E as well as omega 6 fatty acids and antioxidants. Encourage an even texture and healthy glow with this budget-friendly option.
