‘Brown Sugar’ Bliss

Can you believe this month marks a decade since Brown Sugar, starring Sanaa Lathan and Taye Diggs made its big-screen debut? Yeah, me neither! Who can forget their remarkable on-screen chemistry playing opposite sex BFFS?

In honor of the 2002 rom-com (obviously one of my faves!), I’m sharing some of the best beauty products made with the ultimate sweetest ingredient—you guessed it, brown sugar!

The ideal fall exfoliator sloughs away dead skin leaving behind a soft and smooth surface. Plus, it provides a natural shine that makes skin and lips radiate.
