The Pretty Price Check: Your Friday round-up of what we paid for beauty last week.
- $39 is what you’ll pay for a box of the suddenly scarce OB tampons on the black market (otherwise known as Amazon). Ladies (especially you, Kate) I’ve got six OB tampons left in my bathroom cabinet and I accept all forms of payment including cash, J. Crew gift cards, and trips to the beach. (via MyDaily)
- 67 women exhibited less proficiency at math after being looked at as sexual objects, according to this new study. The math abilities of the 83 men in the study were not impacted. (via The Hairpin)
- No! No! Hair 8800 is the ridiculous name of this DIY hair removal device, voted At-Home Beauty Treatment of the Year by 50,000 consumers in an industry-sponsored survey. I hope everyone pronounces its name with an appropriate level of exclamation-point-indicated excitement. Or is it horror? (via GCI)
A short (but to the point!) Price Check this week, so I’m hoping y’all will stick around for another minute or two and take this quick poll about what you’d like to see less/more/most of here on Beauty Schooled. Because I aim to please, obvs, and I’d like to know which types of posts are most rocking your world these days. I’ve removed the “block repeat voters” option on this poll, so if you’re torn between a couple of answers, you can vote for each of them. And I’d love to hear more in the comments: Why did you pick your favorite? If you voted for more than one, how do you rank them? And so on.
(Also, don’t hold back — if you have a serious least favorite kind of post, you should tell me about that too. I can take it, don’t worry!)
Thanks so much and have a lovely weekend, grasshoppers!
