With all the warnings about the toxins in households products, it’s often scary to think about what we’re slathering on our skin on a daily basis. Sometimes the surest way to be safe is by creating our own beauty products. While it’s easy to make an avocado face mask or olive oil hair treatment, what about more complex daily creams? European company Rowenta has created a new consumer product that lets users easily create professional products at home with naturally decadent ingredients.
A slew of startups, from Birchbox to TestTube are allowing ladies to sample new beauty products monthly. You sign up for a subscription (anywhere from $10-$50) and get a surprise box with a selection of miniature or fullsize samples to try out monthly or quarterly. We tried out Birchbox, and were disappointed by the small size of the samples. (Why pay for free samples?) Although most people don’t need more toiletries to fill their beauty kits, it’s a fun service that feels like getting a surprise present in the mail every few weeks.
