Beauty IRL: Face Mists Are Fancy Bullshit And I Love Them Anyway

There is perhaps no beauty product more superfluous than face mist. Yeah, you kind of need moisturizer, and some would argue that lipstick or eyeliner is a requirement, but a bottle of water that contains mysterious “minerals” and is scented with various flowers that you spray on your face intermittently throughout the day is not…

All The Science You Need To Know About Your Skin’s pH Level

I have been having THE WORST breakout lately. What bothers me isn’t so much that it’s been all over my face -- although lately it has -- but that it’s lasted for such a long time, and no matter what I did, I couldn’t get rid of it. When I stopped shampooing my hair,…

Beauty Test Drive: Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment

Taking care of my skin always feels like a chore. Whether it's taking my makeup off before I go to bed or using the Clarisonic Mia (which gets me tons of compliments, for real), it's not a habit. Or it's a bad habit. Whatever, you know what I mean. But when Origins sent…

Pharrell Williams, 40, Knows The Importance Of Skincare

"You have to clean your face. You can't sit around and assume it's going to be OK. I wash my face every day — don't be afraid to wash yours before you go to bed! … At the end of the day, you just have to take care of your face. I'm being honest with…

This Is The Worst Thing You Will See All Day

At first I was excited. "The Epic, Disgusting Removal of a Blackhead 25 Years in the Making," posted on Jezebel, sounds exactly like my idea of a good time. I love gross shit, I'm a picker myself, and I think we can all agree (right?) that there is something so disgustingly satisfying…

Sit down, everybody, and let's talk about that most elusive of all makeup looks, the majestic, seemingly intangible unicorn that is Perfect Skin.

Though rare in the United States, using bird feces for facial treatments is a well-known and common in Japan. And if you're just dying to have bird poop smeared on your face in the hopes it will improve your skin, one New York spa offers the treatment for $180. This poop isn’t just…

Wearing Your Makeup To Bed Will Turn You Into A Flaky-Skinned Hag

Chronic makeup-to-bed-wearer here. As such, I read with interest a new, very scientific study undertaken by Anna Pursglove, a writer over at the Daily Mail, who spent a month wearing her makeup to bed (and basically not washing her face) to see what might happen. Short answer: It's not pretty.

I Want That: Luxurious Face Masks!

A face mask is a great way to wind down from the week and de-stress. I love a face mask, especially when my skin is feeling totally oily and out of control, but our friend Andy from Celebuzz had never tried one. So we thought, what better time to introduce him to…

Nipple Crayons, Nose Straighteners & More: 11 Amazing & Terrifying Beauty Products From Japan

Japanese beauty products are wild, man. They are at once super futuristic but also hopelessly outdated. Like if Betty Draper met "Tron" or something -- you'd be wearing a crazy space suit but worried about "reducing" and "slimming your figure." I'm totally fascinated by these things, and I'd be lying if I didn't say that…

Beauty Test Drive: Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer

My skin has been all but terrible lately, and it's all but my fault. My breakouts, dryness, redness, blotchiness, sensitivity, and unidentified non-pimple bumps covering my forehead have either everything or nothing to do with my recent proclivity toward sleeping in my makeup, staying out late, eating terribly (but deliciously), hanging out in smoke-filled rooms,…

Makeup Bag: Facial Cleansing Wipes For Late Nights And Lazy Mornings

They aren't the sexiest or most exciting beauty product — not by a long shot — but facial wipes are an absolute necessity. If you're prone to late-night laziness or, um, unforeseen sleepovers, a pack thrown in your purse can mean the difference between a fresh face and eyeliner on your cheeks in the morning.

As you may or may not already know (you probably do), April is Earth Month, which means it's prime time to educate yourself about all things good and green. Switching to natural beauty products, particularly skincare (I'm not about to part with my heavy-duty, chemical-laden concealer), can be crazy beneficial to all skin types —…

Beauty Test Drive: Dermalogica SkinPerfect Primer

I've had my tube of Dermalogica SkinPerfect Primer for awhile now, and for most of that time I've used it occasionally when I needed an extra layer of coverage for under my eyes or to conceal redness around my nose. I liked it a lot, but it probably wouldn't have made it into my deserted…

Face Wipes For Your Inner Islander

Lazy ladies know what's up: when it comes to tumbling home after a late night (or collapsing in front of the TV with a glass of wine, whatever floats your boat), face wipes are the only way to go. Why fuss with soap and water when you can just slap a cleansing wipe on your…
