soaps inspired by happy hour, handmade in chicago.

The best way to unwind? We'd say either by reading a new book while soaking in a bubble bath, or by going to the bar with friends. Tough call, we know. But, thanks to Etsy shop Still (formerly The Soap Distillery) you'll never have to choose between the two. That's because the Chicago-based DIY bath and body online boutique serves up beauty products inspired by your favorite cocktails.

Yes, we are serious.

With soaps that come in fragrances emulating those of your go-to drinks (like mojitos, bourbon, and yes, even beer) you can totally gear up for a party night in your own apartment. Even though these colorful treats for your bod can only be scooped up online (unlike your go-to happy hour cocktail) they are hand-crafted (just like those delicious sips).

The best part? You may not be able to tip the mixologist who whips up these fantastic concoctions, but you can enjoy them without having to worry about a hangover cure.

See our favorite soaps in the gallery, paired up with recipes for cocktails they were inspired by. Plus, if you live in Chicago, stay tuned to Still's Facebook page to see where you can find them at pop-up shops around town!

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
