Picture it: 1987. I have one idol and her name is DEBBIE GIBSON. Enjoy my fave song of hers, if you will:
The summer this was the it song, I was at Spring House Day Camp in suburban PA. The first time I heard it, I was at this weekend sleepover where we were supposed to play SPIN THE BOTTLE. I was seven at the time, and totally and utterly scared to kiss a boy (wouldn’t you be at seven? This camp was mildly fachachta, to say the least.) I distinctly remember telling my counselor that I wasn’t down with kissing the boys right this MINUTE, but I was so very down with allowing her to swipe me down with some lipstick (which she was applying for all of us, pre-boy kissing.) Even at seven, even at CAMP, I still wanted in on the makeup.
The product inspired by this song? Obv, only one that could be applied while you dream. DuWop iGels ($20) are iDeal for chilling on your couch post-superlong-day-at-work, while you catch a nap and perchance, a dream. They’re super-gummy (to the point you almost want to BITE them), citrus-scented, cucumber-cool (stick them in the fridge for 15 min prior to application), and do yeoman’s duty to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
