1. The Best Things To Get From The Simpsons x ASOS Collection

The Simpsons has remained one of the most the iconic TV shows of all time. While it rose to fame in the 90s, the show’s humor always remains relevant, and is so perfectly in tune with the meme age. This season’s ASOS x The Simpsons collab features cool nods to Matt Groening’s aesthetic on the show, with pieces ranging from swimsuits to printed shirts all marked by an overarching theme of 90s nostalgia. Here are our favorite exclusive items from the Simpsons x ASOS Design collaboration. Shop quickly because these limited-edition styles are sure to go fast.

2. The Best Charcoal Products To Clean Out Your Pores

Charcoal in skin care products is a trend that is not going away anytime soon and for good reason – charcoal is a powerful ingredient that works like a magnet to attract and absorb dirt and oil, making it an ideal skin care match. In addition to absorbing toxins and pollutants, it is also known to help minimize pores, reduce excess oil from skin, helps prevent premature aging, fight acne and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

We already know about the popular charcoal pore strips, which remove blackheads, debris and other gunk from your nose. Below we have highlighted eight other skincare products from face masks to oil blotting tissues, containing activated charcoal that will keep your skin toxin-free and healthy looking.

3. 6 Affordable Alternatives to the Lacoste Polo

Lacoste is making a big comeback as the go-to polo shirt. Of course, Lacoste hasn’t really gone out of style since they started making crocodile embroidered tennis shirts back in 1933, but recently they’ve upped their game with modernized styles. One of their best new shirts is the iconic Paris polo style, which upgrades the classic shirt with a new hidden-button placket, softer fabric, and modern color options.

Although we’d all love a Lacoste polo (or three) in our closet, at almost $100, they’re not cheap. Luckily, we found some affordable alternatives to the Lacoste polo that provide the same classic look for less money.
