Have I told you lately how incredibly lazy I am sometimes? Last night I went to a karaoke bar with a few friends and I got in super late (watching my best friend Jai sing Don’t Stop Believin’ Steve Perry style is to good to pass up on! It’s like Glee for the gay man!). Making my way to the bathroom I proceeded to look at my skincare shelf and groan….god it was way past my bed time and I was just so not up for my 50 step removal process.
My friend Iris saved the day as she purchased me some Yojiya Facial Soap Sheets. Thank you Jebus, fast clean up and I can get to bed!
How’s your Monday treatin’ you? Mine is INSANE! Anyway…wanted to tell you I’m currently obssessed with The Skin Food Apple Vinegar Cleansing Gel. OMG Loves it!
I was kinda a little wary of trying this out as really Apple Vinegar? Vinegar isn’t something I wanted on my face….but no worries it’s actually incredible stuff.
Such a chore isn’t it? But a necessary evil. If you aren’t SPF’ing yourself to death prior to heading out the door in the morning we can’t be friends anymore. SPF is essential at not only keeping your skin in good condition but also essential to your health.
But the moral of my ranting is that SPF is uncomfortable to wear. I have a rather intricate skincare regime and it seems like I use way too many products in the AM. Anti-aging serum, Vitamin C powder, SPF, Moisturizer, Toner, this, that, some of that, some of this….it’s too much!
Plus to add insult to injury in most cases SPF is rather thick so it makes my face feel oily or greasy and even really good ones end up feeling a tad uncomfortable in the long run.
If you have all similar rants you NEED Kao Bioré Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+ PA+++!
You may not remember Violet Newstead slipping rat poison in Franklin M. Hart Jr’s coffee but me and my sister remember it as if it were yesterday.
Ahh yes the 80’s at its best and a good year for the film 9 to 5 starring Dolly Parton (yea she acted a little bit as well as sung little ditties, who knew?)
My sister and I have watched this flick way too many times to count and could possibly star in a remake….
But this isn’t really about the movie it’s about the new Lush 9 to 5 Cleanser!
I’ve never gotten an actual facial peel but I still remember to this very day the episode of Sex and the City when Samantha had gotten one.
Now Samantha was trying to de-age her skin a fair bit so I’m guessing she was looking to diminish fine lines, brighten her skin tone up, and perhaps fight dull, tried skin or uneven skin tone. These would be many of the reasons you’d consider a facial peel.
However, from what I’ve read, facial peels are pretty darn harsh on the skin causing all sorts of irritation and redness because essentially it’s peeling away one layer to reveal a fresher layer beneath.
But my skin isn’t an onion…I don’t have layers you can peel away at will. I like my layers thanks so much and I’m not out to remove any of them…maybe polish them up a bit, maybe exfoliate them, but literally burn them off using chemicals? No thanks!

Does it work?
