Not like we need to add another step in our beauty routines, ladies, but take a minute to hear the case for face masks. Think of them as you would a deep conditioner for your hair: No, they’re not absolutely necessary, but boy, do they make a world of difference!

Warm weather and sunny days signal the reemergence of short skirts and bare skin. That also means that hiding those hairy legs under jeans and leggings will no longer fly. (Don’t act like you didn’t let a few days slip.) So get your body ready for summer by choosing a hair removal method that works best for you. Best part about it—from price range to technique—is you have options!

Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio and other Victoria Secret Angels helped usher in a new fragrance for the brand this past weekend in New York City called Heavenly Flowers. The limited edition floral is an offshoot of their wildly successful best-selling fragrance Heavenly, and will be in stores for purchase until June. The Eau De Parfum ($49 for 2.5 oz.) is a bright mix of guava, watermelon sorbet and mandarin, with a settled down scent of gardenia and lily of the valley.

Recently I heard that the secret to producing a super-shiny manicure is all in the brush. I think I can agree with that. Rimmel London’s new Lasting Finish Professional Nail Polish ($4, ulta.com) imparts impeccable shine in just one stroke thanks to its fat, flat brush. Nevermind that this wide applicator cuts your mani time in half, but as the polish is laid down in one smooth stroke, the chances of clumping or creating streaks is dramatically decreased.

The world of Gucci has released another pillar of luxury, this time in its fragrance portfolio: Gucci Flora Eau de Parfum ($60, 1 oz. spray, sephora.com) is a richer remix of the original Flora by Gucci. The parent was a light, bright floral bouquet, while its new offspring is a deeper, more sensual and concentrated formula. The gold liquid gives a hint to the warmer sweetness inside, and gives the bottle a more regal appearance overall.

I was in New York from DC for an event and the rain was relentless all day. The last thing I wanted to do was make the slushy trek into Manhattan from Brooklyn to check out a spa. Still, duty called. When I arrived at the Waldorf Astoria, I thought it was beautiful, of course; but a bit stodgy and traditional. The setting did nothing to lift my rain-soaked mood.

As Miami homicide department chief Maria Laguerta on the Showtime series Dexter, Lauren Velez doesn’t know that her blood splatter expert (Michael C. Hall) is secretly an avenging serial killer, and until recently, she was keeping a secret of her own—a hot and heavy love affair with Detective Batista (David Zayas). But when it comes to beauty secrets, Velez is happy to share.

Lickable body icing, non-toxic massage oils and whipped cream not meant for the kitchen; this can all mean only one thing: It must be Valentine’s Day. I have decided to embrace the holiday I used to loathe largely in part because I’m still bummed Christmas is over. I need a little something to look forward to. So let’s focus on a slightly sexier day of giving, shall we? If you need inspiration, check out Victoria’s Secret 7 Sides of Sexy on victoriassecret.com.
