To dare to disturb the universe with an original, strong, beautiful, smart, funny, and fun beauty and health site.

Daring because it’s created and written by An Actual Journalist with world-class medical, beauty, and journalist advisors.

Universal because we’re connecting real beauty and health information with real women and girls who care about those things as much as we do.

As for our name, More Lovely. It was inspired by Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18: 


Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Thou art more lovely…

In our context, this means you were born lovely. So you’re already lovely. And you can be more with the right guidance, experts, and products.

Let us go then, you and I.

My friend Noleen is obsessed with three things: her cats, Shayna and Mara, a.k.a. Kit and Caboodle; yoga; and lip balms. The girl cannot get enough. Of any of those.

But since I’m her beauty friend, we’re gonna focus on lip balms because the truth is, no lips can afford to forgo them, especially in December. And you can never have too many lip balms. Ever. Noleen always loses hers, though I think that wascally Shayna may be hoarding her Mommy’s stash.

At any rate, I’m currently in mad love with Carmex Comfort Care Colloidial Oatmeal Lip Balm in all three new subtle flavors ($1.99 each): Mixed Berry Stick, Sugar Plum Stick, and Watermelon Blast Stick. (Go to the Carmex site for “Where to Buy” the latter two by you.)

I’m in mad love, I say, because this balm, the brand’s first all-natural formulation, contains good-for-toi ingredients like the aforementioned colloidal oatmeal and fruit seed oil, specifically cold-pressed cranberry seed oil,  to provide clinically-proven, soothing relief to dry, chapped lips; and beeswax and cupuacu butter to soften and moisturize. The balm’s texture is rich and nourishing sans a greasy feel, and is instantly comforting.

Noleen will die. As for Shayna’s theft issues, she’s on her own.
