One dermatologist says that eye creams are bogus (yeah…you read that right)

February 26, 2019 at 01:27PM by CWC I judge my beauty products by their level of importance. My retinol and moisturizer are top dogs because they give me the most apparent results.

Evidently there are a bunch of foods that can explode and spark in the microwave

February 21, 2019 at 09:00AM by CWC I got a little lazy while making breakfast recently; instead of sautéing some sliced onions on the stove for my vegan omelet, I decided to cut down on dishes by popping them in the microwave.
