DIY LUSH Bath Bomb

I‘ve been home for just over a week. It’s been so nice to relax and enjoy seeing my family and friends. One of the things I missed most about home (besides the aforementioned family and friends!) was my weekly spa sessions. I love putting on a face mask and taking a long bubble bath and just decompressing. But at school, I don’t have the luxury of a bathtub. So since I’ve been home, I’ve loved relaxing in the tub. And what better way to relax than with a bath bomb? I have no shame in admitting my addiction to LUSH, but their bath bombs can be pretty expensive. So I adapted this recipe for a DIY LUSH bath bomb that’s just as colorful and fizzy as the ready-made version.

This recipe includes good-for-you epsom salt and relaxing essential oils. Check out my recipe below!

Broke Girl Beauty: Skin Care

Hi readers! Before we get into the details of today’s post, I want to mention some exciting news (if you haven’t heard it already). Last week, CoverGirl signed James Charles to be their first male ambassador.

This is an amazing and high-profile opportunity to encourage anyone who wants to wear makeup to go for it. I want to mention that while this series is titled Broke Girl Beauty, it doesn’t mean the guys can’t get in on it too. Makeup isn’t just for women; it’s an art form that anyone and everyone with an interest should partake in.

I finally got my skincare routine down, but my lips were a little bit tougher to deal with. And on top of that, I thought the dead of winter would be a fine time to do a 30 Day Lipstick Challenge (post coming soon!) which beat my poor lips up even more.

So to make it up to my skin, I rounded up some of my favorite products and tricks to heal dry lips. Below are my favorites.
