Minty Feet

It’s almost embarrassing to say, but I have an aversion to mint to the point where I still use bubble gum toothpaste! That said, when wearing heels is part of your day-to-day life and summer is fast approach, it’s definitely time to crank up the heat on your foot-care. Mint seems to be especially effective for foot creams (maybe because of the potent smell!?)… every other product I see is mint-scented. I’ve tested out a few and one that seems to work well is Peppermint Foot Therapy The line is dedicated solely to feet products, so I figure they must mean business!

MAC Fafi

I was just discussing my junior high school horror stories in the 80’s with you guys and then this showed up at my door. Visions of my Souxie and the Banshees eyeliner with blue … Continue reading MAC Fafi

Are Your Beauty Products Killing You?

I am currently obsessed with the Skin Deep Website, a safety guide to cosmetics and personal care products from researchers at the Environmental Working Group. I have been on it all weekend looking up every brand in my bathroom, it was shocking how many items in my bathroom are rated “high toxicity” and that may … Continue reading Are Your Beauty Products Killing You?

Bootie Pies

Post by Beauty Snob Michelle I want to preface this entry by saying that I live in Boston. It gets really cold and really snowy here. That leads to some necessary evils like wearing Ugg boots. I know all the arguments against them. I’ve heard them all and made a few myself. But the fact … Continue reading Bootie Pies

Your Very Own “Cutie Kit”

Don’t be like Paula Abdul and go whining to legislators about an infection you got while getting a manicure. If you are that concerned, and you should be, bring your own set of tools. I know most places “clean” their tool, if by clean you mean putting them in a tupperware box marked “clean”. It … Continue reading Your Very Own “Cutie Kit”
