August 26th 2007 · Happy With My Beauty Product Rut!(3)

Even though I am obsessed with skin care and beauty products, I now have a paralyzing fear of buying anything new! When I was trying to cure my acne, I spent an obscene amount of money on every product I could find, and initially nothing worked, so I felt like I had wasted so much […]

August 21st 2007 · Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion(8)

As far as moisturizers go, Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion seems controversial to me. I believe it first came out in 1968, and to this day it still sells really well. I hadn’t ever tried it, even though I knew it was really popular, and I’d see it every time I passed the Clinique counter. In […]

August 12th 2007 · Frownies – The Poor Woman’s Botox(9)

Frownies! I heard about these “silly” skin care wrinkle preventors  several years ago called Frownies. They are essentially thick pieces of paper with an old-school stamp-like adhesive. You wet them, and then stick them on your face in areas you get muscle-causing wrinkles. In the picture, you can see the woman has them in between […]

July 31st 2007 · How To Prevent Cosmetic Acne(94)

Oil-free, non-comedogenic, and Dermatologist-tested are all phrases I used to look for when I’d buy products to help with my acne. By reading The Beauty Bible – Paula Begoun, and through my own personal experiences, I’ve learned that these terms are meaningless. The beauty industry does not seem to have standards when it comes to labeling […]

July 27th 2007 · How I Cured My Adult Hormonal Acne(61)

As you read in my previous post – Acne Treatments That Didn’t Work – I had bad acne, and it wasn’t going away, no matter what I tried. After two years of the acne, I was 30 and I’d had enough! The last Dermatologist I visited in LA gave me a prescription for Differin cream, which again, […]

July 21st 2007 · Product Discontinuation Paranoia(29)

People often say I’m neurotic. I have no idea why. I used to constantly try out new products, always trying to find something better, since I was never satisfied with anything. But there are a few products I now love, like the blue ChapStick, and that makes me constantly paranoid that the product will be […]

July 9th 2007 · MakeupAlley(1)

MakeupAlley I love the website MakeupAlley cause it’s saved me tons of money! Before I buy any new makeup or skin care products, I search on the Product Reviews on MakeupAlley (you might need to register for a free account before you can see them). A lot of popular products will have tons of reviews, so you […]

July 3rd 2007 · Tweezerman Tweezers(2)

Tweezerman! I never thought I’d be excited about tweezers, but the Tweezerman Slant Tweezers are the best! I used to just use cheapo $3 tweezers, but once I realized I needed to regularly pluck my eyebrows, I decided to try Tweezermans, since I had heard a lot of good things about them. I felt silly paying […]
