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."

Have you taken a 'Flash Nap?' Let us know how it worked for you!

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
