Lime Crime Founder, Doe Deere, Does Mornings The Right Way

Each person is unique, and so is their morning routine. So naturally we were curious about the morning rituals of Doe Deere, founder of beauty products brand Lime Crime. Doe has the enviable ability of naturally waking up when she decides she wants to, and prefers to wake at 8:30 AM each day, after getting a full nine hours rest. She accredits her sleep schedule for her clear skin, and states that she welcomes each morning by drinking pure water and contemplating her day.

 

Up next is breakfast, followed by light stretching. Her favorite breakfast item is grits, a form of hot cereal beloved by many southerners. Doe also enjoys yogurt, oatmeal, and orange juice- after all, variety is the spice of life!

 

The calendar on her phone is her go-to resource for remembering what each day has in store. She checks on the team chat set up for her company as soon as she wakes, and stays in touch before even reaching the office. Doe Deere likes to steer clear of too many digital distractions in the morning though and focus on creativity. One way she does this is by listening to music while putting on her signature eye-catching makeup.

 

Deere uses a rose scented face wash to start the process and states her favorite part of applying makeup is the blush and lipstick choices for the day. She tends to stay in pink and red hues such as “Pink Velvet”, “Rustic”, or “Red Velvet” from her Matte Velvetine line at Lime Crime. Her makeup takes anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour to apply, depending on where she is going that day, or if she feels like indulging in some extra pampering time.

 

As her hair is already dry from showering the night before, Deere has time to curl her locks to show off her signature purple hair. Then she takes time to enjoy her two cats before heading into the office around noon. Work days are full of meetings and can last until midnight if needed, so it’s easy to see why Doe Deere loves her creative mornings.

 

Lime Crime products are as creative as Deere herself, and feature a wide variety of unicorn hair colors, unique lip colors, sparkly lip textures, blushes, eye shadows, and pop-on nails. Consumers worldwide love embracing their own unique look with a little help from Lime Crime.

The Benefits of Wen Conditioner: A Bustle Review

Wen is a brand that is known for its natural ingredients, including plant extracts and essential oils. The brand has been praised on Twitter by a number of celebrities who say that Wen helps to improve the look and overall health of the hair. If you’re considering becoming a Wen customer, this review from Bustle’s Emily McClure can help you decide if Wen is right for you.

Emily tried the Fig conditioner from WEN for seven days. Wen’s conditioners also have cleansing properties, and can be used as an all-in-one hair cleansing product. On the first day of the experiment, Emily noticed that even though it took a lot of conditioner to cleanse her hair, her tresses immediately felt softer and less frizzy.

Near the middle of the week, Emily used a curling iron to style her hair, but her curls fell after a few hours since the conditioner made her hair heavier. However, her hair still looked healthy and moisturized, and her friends even complimented her hair before the experiment was over.

Overall, Emily says that she’d recommend Wen conditioner to women who use heat on their hair daily, due to the protective nature of the product. She also says the conditioner works great for adding volume to the hair.

Wen products are available on QVC stores and on Guthy-Renker.
