Freeze 24/7 IceCream Double Scoop

I’ve been mulling over a few major decisions lately. Potentially I will be putting all of my life savings into buying an apartment and I might fulfill a live-long dream of buying a short-haired mini dachshund. In the meantime however I’ve taken up doing hot power yoga to add more “om” to my life and […]

Fighting Breakouts with Murad

I just switched gyms. I used to go to the Sports Club LA, which is three blocks away, but I’m now an Equinox member and usually go to a location that’s a good 20 minute walk away. My new gym has way better classes so it’s definitely worth the extra travel time, but because I […]

Needless to say I’m very into his Super line, which I’ve found to not only be effective, but reasonably […]

This past Monday, I tweeted about a giant zit on my cheek and how it was getting bigger by the hour. I was a very good girl about it. I never touched it; I tried various unnamed products; I even left toothpaste on it one night, all to no avail. Lucky for me, Renée Rouleau […]

Dealing with a Beauty Product-Induced Rash

I know that I’m extremely fortune that trying out a variety of beauty products is part of my job description, but every so often even though I’m relatively discerning about the products I opt to try and the quantities of them I put on my face, I have a bad reaction to a product. The […]

Renée Rouleau Post-Breakout Fading Gel: Break Out of Bad Skin

Let’s see…what could possibly be worse than adult acne? Well, nothing, except for adult acne scars! Blemishes past the age of puberty are bad enough, but the red or purplish scars leftover (never, ever pick at your zits!) can last for weeks. Thank goodness Renée Rouleau is on our side. Wait until your acne spot […]
