And hate waiting in line for the shower

With schedules so busy and time so precious, sometimes the only way to get in a workout for the day is in the morning before work. Here to help you cut down on your routine post-workout and avoid waiting in line for the shower is RECESS, a new eco-friendly brand that offers beauty essentials for people that need to freshen up and cleanse while on the go.

Founded by Jackie Stauffer, who got the idea for the line while working in the marketing department at Equinox, RECESS launched with three products: cleansing wipes, deodorant wipes, and hair blotters. The facial wipes, made using a combination of hyaluronic acid and apple, are designed to wick away excess oils and give skin a fresh, glowing appearance. Meant to be swiped underneath the arms, the deodorant wipes combine tea-tree oil and acai extract to wipe away sweat and eliminate odor when there's not enough time to hop in the shower. A few swipes of the hair blotters through your locks work to help absorb sweat and excess oils without the scalp buildup caused by many of the dry shampoos carried in gyms and fitness studios.

The deodorant and cleansing products come in a package of 15 individually packaged biodegradable wipes, perfect for throwing in your purse or gym bag. The blotting papers, whose star ingredient is charcoal, come in a pack of 25 and can, too, easily fit inside a makeup bag or even a pocket.

If you're someone that's constantly on the go and loves fitness, this brand is meant for you. See the three products, below, and buy them at

Delevingne shared why they chose now

Last week, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson officially confirmed the rumor that they're dating, with Delevingne posting an Instagram video of the two of them kissing. Now, in a new interview, she revealed why they confirmed the rumors. Basically, it was in celebration of Pride.

In the interview with E! News at the TrevorLIVE Gala, Delevingne was asked why the pair chose this moment to take their relationship public, and she answered: "Because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened, and I don't know... It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?"

Why not, indeed? Delevingne also said that the kissing video was "just a little something," which makes sense. After all, the couple were recently spotted lugging around a kinky sex bench, so some simple kissing must feel pretty elementary.

At the Gala, Delevingne shouted out Benson during her speech too, though not by name. "I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are," she said. "She's one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought." I'm swooning.

"I don't regret it at all. I mean I'm a man, and as a man, you do real things."

In 2017, Atlanta-based artist iLoveMakonnen (or just Makonnen) had already experienced exhilarating career highs and disappointing lows. Drake had hopped on a remix of his viral hit "Tuesday," and then signed him to his OVO Sound label in 2014. Hits like "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Look at Wrist" on his first album, I Love Makonnen, put him on track to be the next best thing in rap. Makonnen was part of a class of rappers and producers who were expanding the trap genre to broader audiences. But problems with OVO led to a delay in a follow-up album, and so he parted ways with the label and, later, announced a short-lived retirement from music. Then in January 2017, Makonnen tweeted that he was gay.
