18 Sunscreens for People Who Hate Sunscreens

Frankly, sunscreen is a pain in my tuckus. It's sticky, it smells bad and just one day by the pool with multiple reapplications to my face leaves my chin a battle zone of acne for the following week. Since forsaking the sun and becoming a hermit didn't work out, I moved on to a new plan: Find a sunscreen that doesn't suck. Luckily, I have a fairly large beauty closet and a team of editors always willing to try a new product at my disposal. We worked tirelessly attending pool parties and outdoor barbecues weekend after weekend -- all to find the best sunscreens that aren't sticky, don't stink, play nice with makeup, are kind to sensitive skin and won't make you break out. Try out a few of our new "holy grail" sunscreens for yourself. We recommend your testing be conducted on a balcony with margaritas -- for the sake of science, of course.   read more

12 Best Products for Curly Hair

Those of us with curly hair know it can be both a blessing and a curse. When it behaves, nothing's better than having a head full of perfect ringlets or waves that cascade over your shoulders. But when it's acting ornery or piqued -- look out. Thirsty, frizzy, stressed-out curls are never pretty. And when we try to wrestle those same misbehaving curls into submission, it only makes things worse. (Because, really, the only thing that looks worse than fried curls are fried curls that have been further fried in an attempt to make them behave.)   Best curl products
