We Test It: The OhMiBod Lovelife Adventure Triple Stimulation Vibrator Is Perfect For Foreplay

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, my pals at GoodVibrations delivered something ten times better than a bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates: the OhMiBod Lovelife Adventure Triple Stimulation Vibrator. YES to sex toys. I must admit, at first glance, I was slightly…

Beauty Test Drive: Rembrandt Deeply White 2 Hour Whitening Kit (Before And After!)

In the vast world of intensive, time-consuming, expensive, and extreme beauty treatments, professional teeth whitening has never been one to particularly appeal to me. This is largely, if not entirely, because I hate nothing more than the gloved hands of strangers roaming around my open mouth, applying pastes and gels and plastic trays and god…

Beauty Test Drive: Spa Sonic Skin Care System

OK, so this has been the year of skin woes for me. First, I accidentally burnt my lips using two common beauty products -- teeth whitener and Blistex. After a few weeks, my lips healed for a short time, and then began to peel again. Few products offered any long-term therapeutic relief, and after speaking…

A Love Letter To My Anastasia Brow Wiz

Dear Anastasia Brow Wiz (or as I fondly call you, Stasi), We've only known each other for a few months now, but you've already saved me from moments of embarrassment, and I love you for that. You've helped my brows look as if they're groomed, even though it's been months since I've had…

Beauty Test Drive: Are Sally Hansen Salon Effects Strips Worth The Money?

Product Review: Manduka High Performance Yoga Mat

I'm no yoga pro, but I do the best I can, ya' know? Since I started practicing, I've been using a variety of yoga mats. You know, the usual kind, that generic, foamy, I-don't-know-what-the-brand-is type. But I'm super-tall, and I kept practically falling off my mat every time I did downward dog. I…

Product Review: The Sqweel Gets The Job Done, Loudly

Ask and ye shall receive! A few weeks ago, I posted about the Sqweel, a 10-tongued sex toy that promised to blow my mother-effing mind, and wished that someone would get it for me for Christmas. A few days later, one arrived at my desk. The timing was perfect, as this weekend was rainy…

Product Review: Maybelline Great Lash Big Mascara

Besides the fact that Amelia and I have used Maybelline Great Lash mascara since, like, childbirth, I've gotta add that after almost a decade spent chatting up makeup artists and various beauty experts, it's hands (lashes?) down the preferred mascara of runway shows, photo shoots, red carpets and regular old everyday folks like…
