Bag Balm: A Love Story

Bag Balm: A Love Story

As a born and raised New Englander, Bag Balm has always been my go-to remedy. When I was a kid, my mother would slather it on my sister and I both before and after we headed outside in the winter months to go sledding for hours on end.

Get Gorgeous: Essential Buys For Luminous Summer Skin (At Every Price)

As fashion and beauty writers, we at TheGloss get to test and try a spectacular array of products, but these are the ones currently taking up our shelves.

And then you call in the bedbug dog, and he doesn’t find any bedbugs, and you have to go to a dermatologist and he tells you that you have hives, probably because you’re worrying about bedbugs so much. Well. That wouldn’t have happened to the same extent (to you) if you’d had this bedbug repelling lotion. Belegenza Timeless Skin Moisturize– retails for $40 and the ingredients are said to repel bedbugs. Because, as Fashionista states, “Any girl worth her Alaia, Chanel, and Phoebe Philo’s Chloe archive should not be taking chances with bed bug infestations.” Or psychosomatic bedbug hives. More »
