Are you the ultimate Descendants fan? You'll be excited about Return to Isle of the Lost, by Melissa de la Cruz, just in stores yesterday (5/24/16). 

Here's more about the book:

Mal’s an expert at intimidating her enemies, but she’s broken the habit since leaving her villainous roots behind. So when she and her friends Evie, Carlos, and Jay all receive threatening messages demanding they return home, Mal can’t believe it. Sure, she’s King Ben’s girlfriend now, and she’s usually nice to her classmates, but she still didn’t think anyone would be silly enough to try to push her around.

The thing is, it kind of worked. Especially since she and her friends have a sneaking suspicion that their villainous parents are behind the messages. And when Evie looks into her Magic Mirror, what she sees only confirms their fears. Maleficent’s just a tiny lizard after her run-in with Mal at Ben’s Coronation, but she’s the worst villain in the land for a reason. Could she have found a way to escape? Whatever’s going on, Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay know they have to sneak back to the Isle and get to the bottom of it.

Without its infamous leader, the island’s even worse than when they left it, but the comforts of home—even a home as gloomy as the Isle of the Lost—can be hard to resist for recently reformed villains. Will the kids be able to beat the evil bubbling at the Isle’s wicked core, or will the plot to destroy Auradon succeed?

My girls are BIG fans of the movie and TV series, so they're thrilled to have the opportunity to read this book...

Seriously, your skin care routine doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, sometimes simpler is better...

I'm horrible about washing my makeup off at night, but a few weeks ago I discovered micellar water. Have you tried it yet? This magical potion is totally the lazy girl's solution to skincare. A simple swipe of micellar water poured on a cotton pad is all you need to remove your makeup at the end of the day -- mascara included. No rinse, no fuss!

Micellar water is suited for all skin types, and I'll let you in on a little secret... Simple Micellar Cleansing Water is every bit as good as the more pricey high-end formulas. Considering the product is mostly soft water combined with tiny oil molecules that attract dirt, grime and oil, I'll take the drugstore-available brand every day -- and it happens to be on promotion at Walgreens this month!

Take advantage of a few offers at the Be Your Own Beautiful event at Walgreens this April -- where you can test out select skin care products and snap up a few coupons. Plus, get 2,000 Balance Rewards points when you buy any 2 participating Dove Personal Wash, Dove Men+Care Personal Wash, Simple or Vaseline products. It’s a beautiful thing!

Be sure to ask the beauty advisor at the Walgreens beauty counter for a coupon good for $1/1 Dove, Dove Men+Care, Vaseline, or Simple skin care products to save even more!

Some of the products included in the in-store promotion:

  • Simple Micellar Water: Their “most advanced yet gentle cleanser” instantly boosts skin hydration by 90%, removes makeup, unclogs pores, and doesn’t require rinsing. It is skin care’s most awarded product.
  • Simple Micellar Makeup Remover Wipes: These are great “for makeup free, instantly hydrated skin.” The smart cleansing bubbles attract and gently lift impurities and makeup out with no leftover residue.
  • Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body Wash: “Hydration for healthier, stronger skin.” Ultra-light formula rinses easily and cleanly, and is clinically proven to fight skin dryness.
  • Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash: “Provides softer, smoother skin after one shower.” This formula is hypoallergenic, unscented, and is #1 dermatologist recommended.
  • Vaseline Advanced Repair Pump: “Clinically proven to heal very dry skin in 5 days.” It is appropriate for sensitive skin, absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel, and relieves even stubborn dry patches.
  • Vaseline Deep Moisture Jelly: “Instantly increases skin’s moisture by 250%.” Infused with Vitamin E, it keeps skin moisturized for 18 hours, and is perfect for dry areas like hands, elbows and heels. This product has been accepted by the National Eczema Association.
