Jolene Hart: Freelance Beauty Journalist
A seasoned beauty journalist, Jolene Hart’s writing has been featured in the likes of InStyle and People. Now as the beauty guru behind Beauty Is Wellness, Jolene shares her beauty finds daily. Her wildest beauty tip? “How many times have you finished a bottle of shampoo, only to find that you still have tons of its matching conditioner hanging around? My favorite way to completely use up conditioner (and save money on expensive shave creams) is to shave with it. Conditioner works the same as a creamy shave butter and the lack of foam means that it’s even less drying for your legs. There’s one less product you need to keep in your shower!”
