You now have a new place to get beauty deals on the net.
Marshalls stores have long been one of my go-to’s for things like sheet masks, shower gels and beauty tools. This week the discount retailer launched a full online shopping site. They had been hinting at it for some time and now it’s finally here. You can now shop for all your favorite Marshalls clothing, shoes, home goods and beauty deals without leaving the house.
Skincare brands found on the site include Dr. Jart, Strivectin, Clarins, SK II and Perricone. Makeup goodies included a MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Powder set for $25 and a Gucci High Shine Lipstick for $19.99 (only buy lipstick online when it’s cool out!). Another great find is the ergonomically designed star shaped bottle of Angel by Thierry Mugler for $49.99.
The inventory is a little slim but I suspect the closer we get to Christmas the bigger it will grow. Shop online now at marshalls.com.

The new countertop fridge by FaceTory helps extend the life of your skincare products.
Beauty experts have long suggested putting certain beauty products in the fridge to prolong the life of the product. K-Beauty company FaceTory has created a tiny cute pink fridge designed to hold your favorite skin masks, creams serums and more. The FaceTory fridge has a door shelf to hold sheet masks and three adjustable shelves to accommodate different sized containers.
The 10-liter fridge is also helpful for storing face oils and other products that are sensitive to sunlight. The temperature of the fridge can be adjusted from 48 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit and comes with an AC/DC cable.
The Facetory fridge is priced at $89 and is available at FaceTory.com and (I may get a commission from this link) Amazon. You can get a FREE fridge if you subscribe to FaceTory’s Annual 7 Lux Subscription.
After hearing all the hype about CBD products, I went out a search for something for my husband to use on his aching muscles. I found a line of products at my neighborhood spa called Mary’s Nutritionals. The spa staff didn’t seem to have a lot of education on the products but told me to buy this skin compound for $50.
I took it home and we opened it up. It had a hard, almost waxy consistency. The store had warned me and said you it would warm on your skin and soften. We both scraped some out and applied to different areas of the body. It has a mentholish scent (kind of like Bengay) and kind of floats on the skin. Neither of us could really tell if it made any difference The product also seemed to degrade/change colors after we opened it. The results were similar to any menthol or freezing compound you can buy at the drugstore.
The container didn’t come with any directions. Does it take multiple applications to work? Do you need to put it on more than once per day? Who knows? I tried calling Mary’s direct three different times. Each time you wait on hold for 20 minutes until you get a message that says they are busy and to call back later.
Final verdict: The product seemed to work as well as Icy Hot, at five times the price. The packaging and customer service is the company’s biggest downfall. If you want to try a CBD product, I would buy from a big brand or major drugstore. At least you can take it back if it doesn’t work.
