Two of my favorite beauty products aren’t really beauty products; they just work damn well and happen to be cheaper than high-end alternatives. Listen carefully, dear readers, for I am handing you the keys to my cosmetic success: tanning oil and Vaseline.
Vaseline, I must say, is the mother of all beauty products. It can soften cuticles, tame stray eyebrows, turn powder blush into cream blush, define bare lashes, soften lips, and has about a bajillion more applications. It’s awesome. As of late, I’ve been balls-deep in the new Cocoa Butter Vaseline, which really contains no cocoa butter, but I thoroughly enjoy the fragrance, which brings me to product #2.
TANNING OIL. I motherfucking love dark tanning oil. I use it as a moisturizer year-round. Why? Because it makes me smell like a freaking beach. Because it’s insanely hydrating. Because it makes my legs look smooth and shiny (almost like plastic mannequin legs, but less creepy and inanimate). Because I said so, and I’m awesome. How awesome?? So awesome.
Speaking of awesome, if you were ever wondering about the daily life and general satire of yours truly, you should check out my usual blog, The Nikkipedia.
