Return of the Scrunchie?

It seems like in the end most trends come back around at some point or another, so what about scrunchies? I'm not saying I am or have ever been a scrunchie fan, but it seems like one of those things that has the potential to gain popularity again, right? I mean just look at festival outfits at Coachella, a scruchie would fit in very nicely with a pair of retro sunglasses and some Levi's cutoffs. I have a prediction that next summer we might see these hair toppers again. I think they would fit in during the summer when it's hot out as opposed to the winter because of hats and turbans. Personally, I actually think they are pretty cute with a top knot on those days you just want to throw your hair up. Only time will tell, until then we'll just have to wait and see!

Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Review

Glamglow, a Hollywood based beauty company, has created two mud masks designed to refresh your skin and make you look red-carpet ready. The Supermud Clearing Treatment is designed to fight common skin problems like acne and help clear out your pores. Basically, when you first put this mask on it looks charcoal grey (it actually has charcoal in it) and smells like mint (it also has chunks of eucalyptus leafs in it). Once the mask begins to dry, it turns mint green and feels very tight on your face. You can leave the mask on anywhere from 10-20 minutes, I left it on for a good 20 just to make sure. As it dries, you can actually see the dirt coming from your pores and rising to the surface of the mask. Hence all the dots in the picture. This happens especially around your nose and chin where your skin tends to be more oily. Once you wash the mask off (with just water) any oil that was on your skin is instantly gone and your face is left feeling fresh and rejuvenated. The only down side is that your face will still have a tight tape-like feeling. The long-term effects of the mask took any oil that was on my T-zone away for about a day, but also left other parts of my face dry. In the long run, this mask helps fight acne and reduce oily skin, and if you suffer from these problems I recommend giving this mask a try but beware of dry skin.
