Beauty Test Drive: Curel Itch Defense Lotion

I was cursed with dry skin. When I was younger, I could literally write on my legs because they were so ashy. And as I’ve aged, I’ve developed a slight case of eczema. After years of trying every lotion I could find, I finally developed a regimen that kept my skin moisturized for a day, at best. After showering, I’d apply baby oil while my skin was still wet and then lotion after my skin was dry. But this regimen gets hot in the summer. Fortunately, I discovered Curel Itch Defense Lotion, which not only prevents itchy, dry skin, but also soothes eczema. Keep reading »

Psychology Today Asks, “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?”

What’s worse than offensive articles, like “The Top 10 Hottest Female Sex Offenders” — that are ‘just kidding’?

Offensive articles, like “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?,” published in reputable (?) magazines like Psychology Today that are serious.

Yesterday, Psychology Today pulled an article it posted online by evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanzawa, which sought to explain why black women are considered “unattractive” based on a study of the attractiveness of different races. (However, you can still read the article and see the illustrated graphs here.) Satoshi Kanzawa referenced a study in which white, Asian and Native American women were rated “attractive,” while blacks were markedly not, and men of all races were rated equally “unattractive.” Keep reading »

A Rose By Any Other Name Would Not Smell As Sweet

One whiff of Andy Tauer’s scent creation, Incense Rose, and I knew I never wanted to smell like anything else. This perfume is a contradiction, contrasting the darkly seductive and masculine scent of incense with the feminine sensuality of rose. It contains notes of clementine, bergamot, Bulgarian rose, orris, cedarwood, incense, myrrh, patchouli, and amber. Just a tiny spritz will send you out into the world a sexy and mysterious creature.

Beauty Gross Out Time: What Nasty Thing Do You Do?

Yesterday, in preparation of my first bare-legs day since last fall, I shaved my legs. I don’t like body hair so I shave my legs even in the winter. But yesterday, as I was about to de-fuzz the first strip of leg, I realized that I haven’t changed my razor in more than a year. Yuck! I’ve been using the same razor since before the summer of 2010! The razor was an expensive drugstore brand and actually still performs its hair removal duties without causing nicks and cuts. But I have to admit it wasn’t meant to last this long. And as I looked closer at it, I realized the stains on the handle that I ignored for so long were actually mildew. That calls for a double yuck! So even though I don’t like change, I’m going to buy a new razor today and chuck Old Faithful in the trash … but I will miss her because she served me so well. And I promise to never go this long without replacing my razor again.

Will You Lighten Your Hair For Summer?

Typically, light hair is for the summer and dark hair is for the winter. But recently, I decided to buck the trend and colored my hair jet black (well it was supposed to be Midnight Blue, which is black with a hint of dark blue, but I have yet to notice any blue). It had been more than a decade since the last time my hair was this dark, and I love it! So I’m definitely not going to lighten my hair this summer. Will you? Do you usually go lighter in the summer? Will you try something new this time around? Keep reading »
