Finally! Chic Heels That Are Also Really, Really Comfortable

Sep/15/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We went on a hunt to find heels that are chic and work for the office or nights out, but aren’t insanely uncomfortable. As you can probably imagine, it wasn’t easy. But after trying dozens (and dozens … and dozens) of styles, we finally found a pair that fits all our needs. These stacked heels are comfy enough to wear all day, and cool enough to wear with everything in your closet. And because we love them so much and want you try them, we’re hooking you up with an exclusive 15% discount (see below for the code).

We first gravitated toward these pumps because of the luxe texture, snakeskinlike on the black and a stingray finish on the silver. They’ve got a 3 3/4-inch heel (but stacked so you won’t be wobbling around on them) and a cut that’s flattering and leg-lengthening. The pumps also feature a slightly rounded pointy-toe, which makes them easier to walk in and less toe-pinching than a typical pointy heel. We’ll be wearing ours with skirts, dresses and jeans all fall … and winter … and into spring.

Before you check out, enter STYLE15 to get 15% above the price listed in the video above (it’ll work if you’re a first-time Joyus.com shopper). And be sure to check out more fashion finds we love here.

New Fave Beauty Tool: It's Like a Pulsating Face Brush, Only Way Better

Sep/08/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

When one of the editors on the style team shared that she’d stopped using her face brush, we all assumed she’d gone crazy. But then she told us what she’d replaced it with (the product featured in the video below), and we each ordered one, tried it and became converts. There are a lot of reasons we love this facial cleansing tool more than the brush: It’s gentler, it makes our skin smoother, it doesn’t leave our faces bright red after a wash (the worst), it doesn’t have a brush head that has to get replaced periodically and most amazingly, once you use it to wash your face, you flip it around and it does something else for your skin.

Yes, it’s definitely an investment, but it’s a smart one. After all, you can use this face cleanser forever since there’s no brush that gets all grimy and gross. Plus, it’s a two-in-one tool because it’s cleans your skin and, as we show in the video, when flipped around, this baby is also anti-aging.

You’ve got three options: There’s one for normal/sensitive skin, one for combination skin and one for ultra-sensitive skin. All of them come with a charger (which, take it from us, you won’t have to break out very frequently — these last and last).

You can shop the product by clicking on the images in the video above or going here. As always, if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper, you get an extra 15% off your order by entering STYLE15 at checkout.

And be sure to check out more stuff we love, including great beauty products and fashion finds.

What Will We Be Wearing All Fall? This ($40!) Two-in-One Fashion Find

Sep/01/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

Here’s the truth: When we saw this sweater on the hanger, we thought, Cute, but nothing special. Then we tried it on — because our mothers taught us you shouldn’t judge a piece of clothing before you’re wearing it — and we’re glad we listened to our moms because it’s pretty freaking awesome. It can be worn two ways, it looks good on every body type and it might be the coziest thing we own. Oh yeah, and it costs just about 40 bucks with our exclusive discount code.

We love this sweater vest over a long-sleeve solid or striped tee, and also over a black dress with tights and boots. But you can pretty much throw it over anything fitted. And it goes really well with a pumpkin spice latte as an accessory. What we’re saying is that it’s kind of the ultimate fall fashion item.

Click here to shop it, and before you check out, be sure to enter STYLE15 to bring the price down to $42.50 (if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper).

And while you’re at it, check out more stuff we love here.

The statement piece features mixed metal chains of varying lengths, so you get that layered look without having to spend a fortune on multiple necklaces.

Why Do Celeb Makeup Artists Love This Product?

Aug/25/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

Well, for starters, it’s an incredible moisturizer, it’s a gentle makeup remover, it’s a primer, it can be mixed with foundation to create a tinted moisturizer and some people even use it as a face wash. No wonder it’s a staple on TV and movie sets. We’d happily pay full price for this find — but if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper, you don’t have to (scroll down to get the discount code for 15% off).

Our favorite part about Embyrolisse Lait Cream is probably that it removes even the most stubborn, waterproof eye makeup, but it does so gently. No rubbing that delicate skin under your eyes or loading up the area with harsh, chemical-filled products that just dry out the skin. Just swipe on the moisturizer then swipe it off with a finger or tissue.

Of course, we love it as a moisturizer, too (this stuff is not-at-all greasy and never causes breakouts). And yes, it really does double (triple? quadruple?) as a primer or a tinted moisturizer if you add foundation. This editor has even started washing her face with it — it’s a nice, non-drying, gentle cleanser.

Shop it by clicking on the product in the video above or clicking here, and enter STYLE15 if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper to bring the price down to $13.60. But before you check out, be sure to see more beauty products, fashion favorites and fitness finds — all eligible for that exclusive discount.

Happy shopping!

A Genius Workout Tool From a Celeb Trainer

Aug/18/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We first heard about this from Jennifer Garner, who calls the at-home fitness find a “wonder” and “incredibly effective,” adding that you feel results after using it just one time. She’s not kidding. It makes push-ups, squats, lunges, crunches and every other circuit training move even more muscle-burning, but at the same time, less miserable (this editor basically refuses to do a regular push-up now that she’s tried the modified push-up using this tool).

They’re deceptively simple (yes, we know, they look sort of like those furniture movers), but like we said, they’re also pretty genius. We felt like we were engaging our muscles way more when we used the Valslide as compared to doing the same moves without the tool. And we certainly felt more of a burn the next day. Let’s put it this way, if you’re going to spend time doing crunches or lunges or squats or push-ups, don’t you want to get the most out of your workout? Adding these sliders does just that.

We break them out when we’re watching TV and are feeling too lazy to go to a workout class. And because the Valslide is so compact, you can also keep a set in your suitcase and use them when you’re traveling and far away from your gym.

And as we show in the video, the Valslide, which was created by celeb trainer Valerie Waters, are padded so you can comfortable rest your knees or hands or feet on them. Plus, each comes with a cloth baggie or “sock” so you can use the tool on hardwood floor or carpeting.

The First Fall Purchase You Should Make: This Edgy Jacket

Aug/11/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

You’re definitely familiar with Blank NYC clothing. The brand has a huge celebrity fan base (Jessica Alba, Alessandra Ambrósio and Sarah Jessica Parker just to name a few), so it’s no surprise Joyus loves to feature their stylish items all the time. And we fell in love with this super-chic, super-classic, super-easy to wear jacket.

Thanks to the vegan leather sleeves and wool blend combo, this topper is an instant outfitmaker. It’s perfect with skinnies and a simple tee, or teamed with a black dress. (We’d even consider wearing it with a pair of black workout leggings after spin class, you know, for those days when you run a few errands before you get around to showering.)

And while no one wants summer to end, adding the draped design to your fall wardrobe sooner rather than later will make the transition a lot easier. One thing: You better act fast since it’s so affordable (under $100 for first time Joyus shoppers if you use STYLE15 at checkout), we have a feeling it’s gonna sell out crazy quick.

How would you wear this jacket? What else are you excited to buy for fall? Share your thoughts below!
