Introducing: The Waist-Slimming Skirt You'll Wear Every Season

Jul/28/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

There are certain pieces of clothing hanging in our closets that we know we’ll be wearing for years: black blazers, wrap dresses, blue skinny jeans, trench coats and this midi skirt, which is under 80 bucks with our exclusive discount code.

We’re putting the faux leather skirt into the category of “Will Probably Still Be Wearing This in a Decade” because it’s got a really timeless silhouette. It makes the waistline appear trimmer, makes your hips and butt look just the right kind of curvy and looks good on everything from the slimmest to the curviest legs (no wonder it’s a timeless silhouette).

There are plenty of real leather skirts out there, but we’re particularly fond of this faux version because the material is much more breathable, which means we’ve already starting wearing ours — with tanks and sandals — even though it’s the middle of summer. And obviously, we like the price on this midi, significantly lower than a real leather piece. (And even lower if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper since you get an extra 15% off by entering STYLE15 at checkout.)

Order it now and by this winter, the cost-per-wear will be practically nothing.

This Gorgeous Bag Does Something Other Bags Don't

Jul/21/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Well, we could tell you what it does … or we could just show you. Watch the video below to find out why editors are going crazy for this tote (which is actually three bags in one).

Yep, this editor was ready to buy the tote even before she realized it could be flipped inside out to reveal a different color — and that it contained a removable crossbody, perfect for travel or days when you’re not carrying as much stuff.

Once you decide which color(s) to get, be sure to enter STYLE15 at checkout to get an extra 15% off the already totally doable price tag (for new Joyus shoppers only).

And shop more stuff we love here!

What Makes This Dry Shampoo Better Than All the Others Out There?

Jul/07/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

Get the answer to that question in the video below. We also share another amazing find: a texture spray that helps women with even the finest, pin-straightest hair get beachy waves. Oh yeah, and you can get both for an exclusive price (even lower if you use our discount code — find it below).

The editor in the video wasn’t kidding: She really does own that many dry shampoos — and she’s tested out dozens more. So she’s sort of an expert (addict, expert, potato, potahto) on the matter. And this one from Captain Blankenship is the best she’s ever tried. Not only does it absorb oil and add volume (a must for dry shampoos), but it also smells amazing, lasts forever since it’s in powder form, is TSA-friendly and helps extend the length of a blowout.

We’d recommend getting the Mermaid Mane sea salt spray as well if you’re looking to sport pretty beachy waves this summer. We love using both the products together (which is why we worked at getting you an exclusive price on the bundle). Both products are all-natural with no crazy chemicals or scary ingredients.

If you’re a first-time Joyus shopper, be sure to enter STYLE15 to get an extra 15% off the price.

And while you’re at it, nab these other summer must-have beauty products as well: a wacky, but totally awesome tool every woman should keep in her shower and the self-tanning towelettes for people who hate/don’t have time for/aren’t good at/have never tried self-tanning.

Happy shopping and don’t forget to check out more stuff we love here!

This Multitasking Perfume Will Change Your Spring and Summer (Maybe Even Your Life)

Apr/21/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

File this under: Why the heck didn’t someone invent this sooner?! It’s fragrance that doubles as a bug spray. No terrible smell (the scent is light and floral), no chemicals, no DEET, but it magically repels insects including mosquitos as well as all those heavy-duty stinky repellants. We’re loading up on this perfume now and hoping to make it through the next few months without a single mosquito bite — and no gagging over the smell of bug spray — which will be a first.

Click here to pick up the full-size or bag-size bottle of insect repellant (both are TSA-friendly).

We know, the price isn’t exactly super-cheap compared to the bug sprays you’d find at a drugstore, but this isn’t an apples-to-apples comparison. Aromaflage is so much more than your average insect repellant. And, really, we’d gladly pay extra to not have to choose between pesky bug bites and dousing ourselves in terrible-smelling, bad-for-us-chemical-laden spray. Plus, if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper, you can get 15% off everything in your cart by entering STYLE15 at checkout. Oh, and did we mention you get free shipping for orders over 50 bucks?

The Last Water Bottle You'll Ever Buy (P.S. It's Great for Mixing Cocktails, Too)

Mar/24/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We know drinking water is good for us and that there about a million and four health benefits to getting enough of it. Our complaint, though, is that it’s not that exciting. Which is where this genius water bottle comes in…

We’ve become a bit addicted to fruit-infused H2O since discovering the Flavourit bottle. And unlike just dropping slices of lemons and berries in a pitcher, this water bottle is designed to get a ton of flavor out of whatever you’re adding to your drink.

And if you watched the full video, you’ve realized that we’re, uh, not using the Flavourit for just water. This thing has seriously elevated our at-home bartending since we can now make strawberry-flavored vodka-tonics, Dark-and-Stormies with actual pieces of ginger and rum-and-Cokes with a couple cherries added in.

Get an exclusive 15% discount (to bring down the price to 12.75 a bottle) by entering STYLE15 at checkout. And be sure to let us know how you’re flavoring your water (or other beverages!).

(Oh, and if hot coffee and tea are your thing, you must check out this other amazing bottle that keeps drinks hot for a full 12 hours and cold for an entire day.)

Happy shopping and sipping!

–Zoë Ruderman
