We love any beauty product that does double duty, so we were immediately sucked in when we heard Pangea Organics offered a face mask that would not only spruce up our skin, but also arrives in plantable packaging that grows into Genovese Sweet Basil.
Made with natural ingredients such as Japanese matcha tea, acai and goji berry that promise to revitalize with antioxidants while polishing the skin, the Facial Mask comes wrapped in rugged paper packaging that you soak, then plant in soil. The seeds inside the packing should turn into sauce-worthy basil within just a few weeks.

Weather wise, it’s not quite summer yet for San Franciscans. While we’re shedding our layers when late August finally brings the heat, the rest of the world, it seems, is moving on to fall and beyond. Even while dreaming of lazy days at Baker Beach and music festivals in the park, I try to keep up by creating a mental list of gift ideas for when the holidays inevitably come crashing in. Enter: Teens Turning Green skin-care line, for that teenage girl in everyone’s lives.

Like most women, I’ve come to think of false lashes as a special occasion beauty indulgence. I’ll squeeze in an application at a cosmetic counter a few times a year for, say, the ballet opening or the opera gala to achieve that camera-ready, extra diva-ish look. But after noticing how truly fabulous a girlfriend of mine always appears ever since she got semi-permanent lash extensions—whether she’s dressed in sweats or a cocktail dress—I just knew I had to change my inconsistent lash lengthening ways.
