(Since it’s Cyber Monday Lefty and Righty said I could rerun last year’s post on beauty science toys.)
The mission of the Beauty Brains is to educate our community on the science behind beauty care. It’s especially important to get this message to Teens and Tweens who may not have the critical thinking skills they’ll need to sort out the BS from the Beauty Science. Unfortunately, many kids are turned off by science because it’s not presented to them in an entertaining and meaningful way.
Fortunately, there are a number of educational toys on the market that make learning about science fun. So to do our part to help spread the word about science education (and to help you with gift shopping ideas) we present…
