Fall is finally, emphatically here—and we are more than ready. Between the crisp air and the parade of holidays (and holiday treats) on the horizon, we’ve got a newfound skip in our step. For this month’s box, we’ve channeled that excitement into bringing you samples that are buzzy in all different ways.
You’ll find industry leaders like dr. brandt microdermabrasion skin exfoliant, talented newcomers like Floss Gloss nail lacquer, and of course cult favorites such as Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. We guarantee that you’ll have plenty to chatter about this month.
All month, we’ll be rolling out articles and videos that will keep you inspired long past Halloween. For starters, we’ve got the deets on the year’s breakthrough products, as well as a roundup of 10 Spring/Summer 2014 trends you can test-drive right now. If you’re still mastering your everyday look, be sure to watch our blowout tutorial (a key milestone in anyone’s beauty education) and bookmark our buzzword cheat sheet.
