This Week’s Wish List

October 21, 2006 - Leave a Response

Pureology Super Straight Shampoo and Conditioner – They have this at my salon, and I think they’ve even used this on me a few times before and it smelled amazing. I’m not even sure which product in the line would be fore me (because I think a lot are for color treated hair), I’d adding it to the wish list because fun fact – I use a different shampoo and conditioner everyday. Although, at $22.00, I do suspect it will stay on my wish list for a while.

DARSHAN Multani Facial Mudmask – Just check out this product description: “Deep in the jungles and teak forests of India, luminous tribal women bathe along the riverbanks solely using Bastar mud that has been deposited from high mountain sources. Hand-harvested at the river’s edge in complete harmony with nature, this exotic mud from India is purified and then saturated with herbal extracts to deeply cleanse and polish the skin revealing your inner beauty…beyond appearance.” Tribal women and jungles? Yes, I’m intrigued, but the image of tribal woman makes me think of National Geographic Amazon specials. But all kidding aside, this sounds like a mud mask worth trying. The only mudmask I’ve tried to date is the Queen Helene Mud Pack Masque, so I’m intersted in comparing the two.

Queen Helene Egg Yolk Masque – As if I need another mask – my Peter Thomas Roth mask just came in the mail today – but when has that ever stopped me? Plus, I’m such a sucker for drug store beauty. I’ll all over the Sunday CVS flyer like all you beauty bloggers at the Chanel counters when the Black Satin nail polish made its return.

Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair ConcentrateI’ve just read a ton about this on site after site, so it makes me want it too! Maybe I’ll see if they have samples next time I’m at the mall!

Anything from AmorePacific –  Just reading in my newest edition of Lucky magazine that Hilary Duff uses AmorePacfic, and hey, if that’s what a celebrity is using, I want it to!

Excitement in the form of a TestTube

October 21, 2006 - 2 Responses


It’s really sad when reading about this makes your day. I was poking around some beauty blogs this evening when I came across this post on Beauty Hatchery. I immediately clicked the link and became a test tube girl and I couldn’t be more excited! Basically you sign up for a small fee of $25.95 (plus $6.95 shipping and handling) and they send you a tube of the latest new beauty products (not full sized, but very generous), what they are, and how to use them. After you try it out, you provide your feedback, which then could be used in New Beauty Magazine. Frankly, whether my feedback gets used or not isn’t a concern of mine – I’m just excited to get my first TestTube.

October 20, 2006 - Leave a Response

Charlotte James, distinguished paramedical aesthetician and president of the Charlotte-James Facial Clinic in Los Angeles, has just released her top 25 skin care tips. Read her entire list here.

Here are some of the highlights:

-” To reduce puffy eyes temporarily, mash a raw potato, then strain it and apply “the juice” directly to the under-eye area.”

– “To make a quick and effective body exfoliator at home, mix olive oil with sugar or salt.”

– “Sanitize home, office and cell phones regularly. The dirt and bacteria that builds up on them can lead to breakouts where the phone touches your face.”

– “Mix honey and oatmeal to make a natural exfoliant for your face.”

JT Not Bringin Sexy Back

Never did I think I would utter these words together in the same sentence, but Justin Timberlake looks ugly. The beard, that covers his neck as well, looks unruly, coarse and unkempt, and what are those huge bags under his eyes? I’m hoping that it’s just the lightuing or something, but if not, one of his people needs to get him some eyecream or a calming mask or something. Oy vey Justin!
