Nivea Creme Featured on 'Orange is the New Black'

As a digital influencer for Nivea, I was re-introduced to this tried-and-true brand of skincare products. And apparently so have the inmates on the addictive Netflix series Orange is the New Black.

When preppy prisoner Piper Chapman finally receives her commissary check, she gives  Nivea Creme Body Creme to a grateful fellow jailbird. Because dry skin and jail just don't mix. The iconic beauty brand's blue packaging with white type is also featured in a flashback scene from bad girl Alex Vause's angst-ridden adolescence (second photo).

Thanks to Nivea, I carry a 2 oz. tube of the non comedogenic Nivea Creme lotion in my handbag at all times in case of a dry skin emergency.  It certainly comes in handy when I need to moisturize my hands, elbows, legs and feet. While I was applying it to my hands, a woman sitting next to me commented on the clean, subtly citrus scent, "That smells nice."  When I told her it was Nivea, she seemed surprised, but then acknowledged that she hadn't purchased the lotion in years.

So if you haven't tried Nivea in a while, it's time to take another look at this luxe-for-less drugstore brand.  And stay tuned to Everything She Wants for more Nivea product news.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Probiotics Do a Body Good: Vitamin Shoppe Tips to Trust Your Gut

You've heard about probiotics.  But what are they and what do they do? We asked the Vitamin Shoppe's on-staff nutritionist Brian Tanzer for the skinny on the benefits of these good bacteria that help keep your gut healthy. Why you need probiotics? I f you eat a lot of processed foods, excess sugar or refined carbohydrates, the bacteria in your digestive tract might have a hard time staying in balance.  And probiotics   inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Tip:   You can find them in  capsule , tablet,  powder  and  chewable  forms. When you should take a probiotic? If you are looking for a probiotic to  take every day, try a multi-strain probiotic starting with 5-10 billion CFU,  and see how it works for you. CFU's, or  colony forming units  are used to measure probiotics potency. CFU’s can range from 1 billion up to 100 billion.  The best time to take a probiotic supplem
