Later this year, Victoria's Secret Beauty plans to redesign and relaunch its makeup line. Until then, it's out with the old and in with the new. A large collection of goodies is now on clearance, with prices shaved up to 75 percent. The Very Sexy makeup is mostly half price, with eye shadows, lipsticks, and liquid eyeliner at $5.99. Or if you're not a makeup maven, the Secret Garden body care collection is crazy cheap, marked down to $1.99 from $9.

Here in Northern California, there are ample opportunities to let it all hang out — from nude spas and beaches to hot springs that allow you to go au naturel. But are you a scaredy cat when it comes to disrobing in public?
Recently, I had to the chance to visit a "clothing-optional" hot springs village, and although I couldn't make the trip, my friends that dared to bare said it was refreshing to be around people comfortable in their own skin — scars, hair, and bumps included. Most of you don't enjoy showering in public, but when it comes to the relaxing atmosphere of a spa and/or beach, is there comfort in numbers, or is your outlook unchanged?
They've turned your trash into treasures. They've even asked you to guess how long it takes the longest-legged woman to shave. So leave it to the marketing team at Kiehl's to come up with something great just for the fellas. From Friday, May 29 (today!) until Sunday, June 7, stop into a freestanding Kiehl's store (not department-store counters) for the company's first annual Shave Swap.
All you have to do is bring in a men's shaving cream of at least four ounces (any brand will do), and you'll receive a full-size Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream in either a White Eagle, Blue Eagle, or Green Eagle formulation. Gentlemen customers will also be invited take part in a five-minute consultation to determine their skincare needs, after which they'll receive three complimentary samples. Not a bad deal, eh?
Win a Huge Assortment of Pacifica Products From Sephora! I see hydrated skin, soothing, calming scents, and an air of relaxation in your future. It's all thanks to our friends at Sephora. From now until Sunday, we're offering up a huge collection of Pacifica products, guaranteed to have you feeling cool, calm, and collected. Ahh.
Sunshiny beach, here I come! Maybe just in my dreams for now, but if you're planning a Summer vacay (or you're lucky enough to live year-round in a hot place), let's remember protection, mmmkay? Yes, it's Bella on a sunscreen podium again with a tip to treat your tresses, too. Keep hair shielded from sun, salt, and sand — especially if you have fragile, chemically treated or colored hair — since a green 'do is a definite do not do.
It can be as simple as adding a sun spray before you head out, or switching up a product for this season, so peep my picks for chlorine and UV protection before you hit the waves. Beachy.
I am always on a quest to stretch a buck, whether it's through use of multitasking beauty products, or discovering simple ways to make a bar of soap stick around a little longer or prolong the life of a razor. It always seems to me that I burn through candles at a record pace, so I've done my research. If you're looking to make your candles burn longer, cleaner, and more evenly, check out some tips when you read more
GNC, a brand long-associated with building big bulky muscles for jocks, is exploring its softer side. Recently, the vitamin megastore released Wellbeing, a new line of health, beauty, and fitness products for women, including vitamins, supplements, and three new bath soaks ($15 each).
These dual-acting muscle soaks/bath scrubs contain mineral-rich salts from the Dead Sea, perfect for detoxification, exfoliation, and pre-self-tanning. Each soak also contains a high concentration of essential oils to boost their therapeutic benefits. Baths are one of life's simple pleasures, agreed? But do these new products enhance the experience?

Get your minds out of the gutter, I'm talking about on your heads! There's more to hair hues than those that occur in nature — like pretty pink and purple — and it doesn't have to mean bleach and an entire change of color.
If you're not quite ready to dive in whole headfirst, take it just a little way with Streekers ($11), eight temporary shades that won't flake away onto your top either. Whether you sport this style already or did in the past, share the location for your pop of color in the comments below.
