S.W. FAQ: Our Cleanser

When we first released our three-ingredient, non-foaming Cleanser many moons ago, the skincare world was in a bit of a different place. Brands like Clearasil dominated the face wash category with their “blackhead-busting,” detergent-filled offerings; the idea that a good face wash can – and should – produce no foam was virtually unheard of. Now it’s 2017. Micellar face washes are en vogue (something we’ve discussed at length) and it’s no longer unthinkable to wash your face with something that doesn’t leave you feeling like you just assaulted it with hospital-grade disinfecting soap. In fact, more and more of you understand that a good cleanser should be as gentle as it is effective.

The S-Dubs Team Talks Cookies To Ya

So all of us here at S-Dubs are pretty into food – talking about it, planning around it, eating it in all shapes & sizes, drooling over other people’s plates… you get the picture. We all have our vices, but today we chose to focus on cookie related treats because we sometimes struggle to find options that don’t leave us feeling terrible about our choice. But, before I get into the team’s faves, I felt it was important to explain how I am qualified to be hosting this oh-so-important discussion…

We’re All About Those Healthy Fats

People often ask me what the most powerful, nutritionally focused thing they can do to improve their health is. Since we’re all so different, and we all require unique nutrients to best fuel us, choosing just one thing that universally improves health is super tough. There is one fairly universal answer, though; boost your fat intake!

Things I Wish I Knew Going Into College

I distinctly remember my drive down to college freshman fall. My (worried and hiding it badly) parents sat in front seats, turning around constantly in attempt to strike up “one last” conversation before I went off to school. I was in the back, pretending to be oblivious to their concern, listening to this Blink 182 album and staring out the window. Harried parents, indifferent teenager, emo pop punk: Yes, this was the clichéd scene that I look back on semi-fondly when I think of heading off to college.

#SWFAQ: Our Toner

While we hate to choose favorites, our Toner is arguably one of them. Not only does it help to balance out oil production – making skin less oily and less dry – its acidic nature assists in regulating the skin’s own pH, resulting in less blemishes and a more even-toned complexion. And while we may be biased, we kinda think you guys feel the same way, too – for the most part…

Wedding Season Wisdom: From the Bride

About seven years ago – as in, when I was in my early twenties – I was at the airport with my best friend Brienne. We were doing we normally do pre-flight: Spending inappropriate amounts of money on snacks and magazines in the airport’s Hudson News. While I don’t remember exactly what I purchased (probably a puzzling mix of highbrow / lowbrow –The New Yorker, US Weekly, Godiva chocolates, Cheetos), I do remember what Brienne bought: a Brides magazine.

So You’ve Got a Hangover…

Something happened to me when I turned 30. I didn’t suddenly become an adult that actually understands how to do things like manage my 401k, file for taxes, or caulk my bathroom tiles. I didn’t sprout gray hairs or detect an onslaught of wrinkles. But another adult-ish phenomenon happened to me: I lost my ability to cope with a hangover.
