Cosmetic Procedures and Surgery

Lets talk cosmetic procedures. It seems that science has expanded beyond the realms of just over the counter creams, and everyone has a plumping gloss in their purse or makeup bag, even those like me who don’t need even need them.

Don’t Buy

I hated the N.V. Perricone M.D. Body Toning Lotion. Not only is it uneffective, but it smells bad, has the consistency of spoiled milk, and its active ingredient, DMAE, has actually been shown to do damage to skin over a prolongued period of time. I tried this for a week and then tossed the rest. […]

Hydra Bright Moisturizer

I am loving this moisturizer. Not only does it smell fresh, but the creamy gel feels fresh too. I’ve been going through a time where I had patches of dry skin and though I found other creams that worked this was the only one that really sank into my skin and made a difference by […]

Get Rid of Blackheads

Someone in the comments asked me how to deal with the blackheads that plague their extremely oily skin. This commenter says that she’s tried everything and nothing has worked. Let me lay it down for you: no product can miraculously get rid of your blackheads. No cream, no toner, no lotion, no potion. Furthermore: any […]

Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse

Dermalogica recommends that you begin your skin care routine with their Pre-Cleanse. It’s a rosemary-scented oil that you massage into your skin. It emulsifies the impurities on your skin and when you add water to it, the oil washes off. The product is similar to La Mer’s The Cleansing Fluid. The Pre-Cleanse really does work […]
