Take My Money: Rihanna Swears By This $32 Eye Cream To Look Well-Rested

"Y'all already know I never sleep."


Everyone trying to get rid of dark and puffy under eye bags, come on in here, we got some good stuff to talk about. OK, so it's safe to say not a lot of us are feeling particularly well-rested these days. Outside is (kinda) open, we're still overworked and operate on a 'sleep when I die' mantra, and it feels like it's been 2020 for like 10 years. So, it goes without saying that we could all use some tranquility, I believe the Boomers called it 'rest' once upon a time.

But for some of us, rest isn't always immediately possible. And back in February, our sis, Rihanna decided to do something about it.

In fact, Rihanna, she summoned her billion-dollar company to handle the problem directly. Fenty Beauty has released "another baddie for your skincare collection" that our good sis swears by, as she says it will instantly cool and soothes your skin.

She took to Twitter to reveal exactly what that baddie is: her Instant Revival Eye Gel cream from Fenty Beauty called Flash Nap. Of the product, she said:

Basically, Flash Nap is a two-in-one eye cream and concealer primer that wakes up our tired-looking eyes by covering puffiness and dark circles. And thanks to its additions of inflammation-reducing horse chestnut, hydrating hyaluronic acid, Persian silk tree, and antioxidant green tea, that will help you "fake a nap" by brightening and reducing the puffiness of the skin around your eyes. And if you're like me and prefer the actual nap, for those moments where I can't lay down, this $32 cream is slated to do the trick. Rihanna continued:

"I wanted to create the perfect starter eye cream — with easy-to-use packaging, a formula that would tackle puffiness and dark circles, and work really well with makeup to look fresh all day. It had to feel lightweight, soothe the skin, and revitalize — and let me tell you, IT DOES."

Rihanna has done plenty skin and face tutorials in the past, and showing off her glowing features. She tells Vogue:

"As an Island girl, I've had had a lot of access to key ingredients that work really well for your skin. I might've just thought [of it as] a fruit I was eating, but these things that we have access to everyday implement great results on your skin. A lot of them are personal to me, but I know that these ingredients work, and so I try to pack as many of those into these products as much as possible."

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason. The twisties is a gymnastics term that is described as losing control of your body while spinning in the air.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).
