Battle Of The Lady Blogs: Double X Jumps On Jezebel

In “The Trouble With Jezebel” on Double X, Linda Hirshman takes Jezebel to task for what she considers to be a cavalier and snarky attitude on serious subjects like rape and STDs. Then, she asks, “What can Jezebel tell us about the state of young women’s lives?”

Can we please stop talking about Jezebel already? Is there’s really some big conclusion to make about “women’s lives”? The last time I checked, lots of women were blogging about their experiences and their opinions — Feministing, Nerve, Your Tango, Divine Caroline, Bust, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Heather Armstrong, Twanna Hines, and yes, this site.

Finally, Something Hipster Beards Are Good For

[Author's Note: This DailyCandy story was an April Fool's joke, which I fell for. Dammit!]

Finally, something hipster beards are good for: the five o’clock shadow exfoliation.

August Duben, owner and aesthetician at Spa Opilovat in Williamsburg, Brooklyn charges $125 for an exfoliating treatment in which he rubs his beard against a client’s skin. The catch is that August only performs this service on Mondays and Thursdays, when his stubble is at its stubbliest.

If some dude rubbing his chin against you for a Benjamin sounds dodgy, there’s always the $36 Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Scrub. After a couple beers, you could definitely get a hipster to rub his beard on you for free. [DailyCandy] Keep reading »

    Chances are you’ve heard the story: an unmarked door leads to a dimly-lit massage parlor where women with strong hands and tolerant smiles await a train of libidinous male patrons.

    Push Out The Dirt With A Laxative Facial

    Here’s a different kind of poop facial. Swiss Kriss is an herbal laxative that’s been around forever and includes flakes of dried senna leaves, licorice root, fennel, dandelion, peppermint, and peach leaves. Today, I noticed on the box — um, that, you know, was in my friend‘s medicine cabinet — that it has directions for a facial sauna. Dump the box into a pan of simmering water and stand over it with a towel on your head. The herbalized steam “penetrates and cleanses every pore. The beads of perspiration coming from the open pores loosen accumulated make-up, rancid oils, and every bit of dirt in just minutes.” Intrigued, I tried it.

    I lasted about 20 seconds before the “herbalized steam” caused a coughing fit and fear set in that the laxative going straight to my pores would cause a different type of cleansing. It’s worth a try, however, to take that constipated look off your face. [$8.12, LuckyVitamin.com] Keep reading »
