You guys. Someone just showed me this amazing video for blackhead removal using toothpaste and salt. I haven't actually tried the technique yet because I have makeup on and I'm going out to dinner, but I needed to share this right now. This video is amazing. I think my favorite part is "JUMP" in the background. But it also might be the image of the rose. I don't know, there are a lot of good parts.
Update 3/2/12: I tried this after my shower yesterday, and it really does work! And the results last at least until the following day, my pores are still looking good. A word of warning: The "tingling" can be pretty intense when you do the scrub and rinse-off part, so be really careful not to get it near your eyes. I used Kosher Salt and Crest Complete, which, WOW. It burns! It fffrrrreeezzessss!

I’ve written before about the joy I get from a fancy lip balm. My go-to has been Fresh Sugar Rosé for quite some time now. It’s been enough time that I thought I might mix it up a little.
I had heard about (and continued to hear about) Olio Lusso, the amazing and expensive oil blend by Linda Rodin, an ex-model, stylist, skincare maven and 63-year-old-lady-who-is-definitely-way-cooler-than-me. Olio Lusso means “Luxury Oil” in Italian, and it’s a $150 blend of essential oils derived from flowers and other botanicals that are “legendary for their soothing, softening, glow-giving, emollient and protective properties.” It is a blend of legendary oils that I will not be able to experience in the foreseeable future. However! The promise of jasmine, neroli, and other magical oils was enough to get me to try their (relatively) more affordable lip balm as my new fancy lip treat.

I had heard so many great things about Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint, that when my beloved Dr. Jart BB Cream started to get low, I decided I would try something new instead of buying Dr. J for a third time. Just to see.
