    Sunflowers sure are blooming in unexpected places this season. Need proof? Just look to the runways: The sweet ’90s floral print made appearances at Anna Sui, Delpozo, and Jena.Theo — heck, even Kendall and Kylie Jenner's PacSun line showcases the sunny bloom. But, take a stroll down the beauty aisle and you'll notice sunflowers are popping up in your favorite lotions and potions, too.

You’ve got to see it first to take the collection at face value, look at it again up close to catch what you missed, read the reviews to find all the Easter eggs, and then read
