Dear Undercover Agents,

After nine incredible years of Scoops, Scores, and SWAG, Beauty Undercover is changing its course.  In February we will expand the company’s brand strategies operations, continuing our focus in the beauty industry.  However, moving forward, we will no longer publish our Daily Dose.  

You all have contributed so very much to the success of our community! We have learned from your Undercover Agent Revealed posts, numerous comments, and invaluable feedback.  We are so grateful for your support!

For now it is farewell, but not goodbye!

Holly and the Beauty Undercover Team  xx

While its hard to recalibrate our senses to the crisp aromas of fall, some of us just can’t say goodbye to the luscious tastes and scents of summer.  Sara Happ The Lip Expert gives our pouts a little paradise with the limited-edition Coconut Lip Scrub.  Enjoy a taste of the tropics year-round with the brand’s most-requested flavor to date!  Composed of ingredients such as sugar, jojoba oil, grape seed oil, and rosemary, all Sara Happ products (the full range includes Scrubs, Slips, Glosses and Treatments) are cruelty-free and contain no parabens.  The vegan Lip Scrub is gentle enough for daily use, but Sara Happ recommends scrubbing lips “as often as needed, and especially prior to lipstick/lip gloss application.”

Sara Happ The Lip Expert is offering a limited number of lucky Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SWAG its  limited-edition Coconut Lip Scrub (retail $22) simply by following them on Instagram (or Facebook if you don’t have) and entering  here. This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only.  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks from notification.
