Hate taking off your nail polish? Try these scented removers!


We all hate taking off our nail polish – but it is a means to an end. Then we can turn around and re-paint our nails something fabulous! The trouble with removing nail polish is that it just stinks to high hell.

According to InStyle, some companies are getting behind changing that very issue.

Measures have been made to combat the scent in recent years, with many beauty brands eliminating hazardous chemicals from formulas, like the solvent toluene and formaldehyde (a carcinogen), and many natural, yet effective removers are cropping up. Improvements aside, many continue to have unpleasant, however more earthy, scents.

Some removers are following in the direction of Anna Sui’s and Revlon’s scented nail polishes, creating pleasant-smelling formulas, from Ciate’s chocolate-themed “Choc Pots” to Deborah Lippmann’s refreshing lavender remover, which also helps to condition nails.

Would you spend the extra $ to buy a remover that is less stinky?

Aveeno teams up with Jennifer Aniston for a stunning Oscars look!

Last night, AVEENO® Global Ambassador Jennifer Aniston showed off her glowing skin at the 87th Academy Awards in Los Angeles, CA. Jennifer’s make-up artist, Angela Levin, created the star’s natural look with the help of AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Daily Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion. Read on for Angela’s insider beauty secrets to recreate this red carpet look!

One of the most important parts of make-up application on a day like the Oscars is longevity – it has to last all the way from the red carpet to the event and throughout the after parties. I started by hydrating Jennifer’s face and neck with AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Daily Moisturizer SPF 15, and to accentuate her glowing arms and shoulders, I used AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion.

· I applied a thin layer of Youngblood Mineral Primer on her face and neck followed by a light layer of CHANEL Perfection Lumiere Velvet in 50 Beige. As a finishing touch I used CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour in No. 50 to achieve that sunny glow.

· I applied CHANEL Cream Blush in Destiny to her cheeks as a base and then brushed on CHANEL Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 190 Angélique.

· For her eyes I used CHANEL Eye Shadow base in Lilac on the eye lids and followed with a light powdering of Ben Nye Translucent Fair. For her eye shadow I used CHANEL Tisse Paris and the purple and black from L’intemporel De Chanel.

· To finish the look I used CHANEL Rouge Coco 400 Louise, with Rouge Allure Gloss Sensual mixed with Glossimer 41.
