Man Candles?

 

Just in time for Father’s Day, Yankee Candle has launched a new line of candles targeted to men. The “Man Candles” are made to put anywhere men congregate like garages, game rooms and man caves.  The new limited edition candles are available at Yankee Candle stores in four scents:

Man Town™ — Escape to the man cave with this masculine blend of spices, woods and musk.

First Down™ — This combination of orange, patchouli, vetiver and leather is as exciting as game day.
Riding Mower™ — Hot sun. Cool breeze. And the intensely summery scent of freshly cut grass.
2 x 4™ — The warm, unmistakable scent of freshly planed wood and sawdust evokes a sense of confidence and quality.
Candles start at $2.99 (Car Jar) all the way up to $27.99. They even have man candle accessories.

Living Proof Full Thickening Cream- a review

Living Proof Full Thickening Cream

After seeing this product demonstrated on QVC, I thought I would give it a try. I have thin, fine hair and this leave-in treatment is supposed to make it appear thicker, with more body. It is pricey, $14 for a 1.8 ounce bottle, but you only need a pea-sized amount. I put a little more than that in my hair, being careful not too put it too close to my roots. It did work. My hair felt thicker without feeling like I had product build up. I thought it was great, until I went outside. The heat from the sun hits your hair and it emits a smell like you are at an outdoor fish market. Now, I had read reviews on makeupalley.com that complained about the smell, and I assumed it was too flowery or something. Good thing Sephora took it back. Living Proof, if you are listening, fix the smell and I will buy it again!
