    Seriously! The day I finished using the two samples they gave me, I was right back in to buy it. In that short period of time I felt like I didn't want to go another night without it.

    Holy friggin' expensive, though - $100/bottle ! The only beef I have with it, is that a little doesn't seem to go a long way like the Genefique does. It dries/absorbs really quickly, so you don't get a chance to spread a small amount around.

    Apparently they did build an ice rink here for the MAC event today but I never got to see it . Oh well.
    I was having some issues with acne the past week so I went cheap and got Clean n Clear's 3 in 1 exfoliating cleanser with 5% benzoyl peroxide. I'm so happy I didn't splurge for the proactiv cleanser cause it has actually helped a ton.

    Has anyone seen Johnny's line in person? It's way, way too shimmery for me to actually wear, but it's all very pretty. I'd love all three of the paint pots if they weren't so icy looking.

    The Fabulously Festive Face Kit/Warm looks nice but it's sold out, at least on MAC's website. I'll have to check it out in person some where...

    MAC is notoriously ridiculous about collections selling out, but they typically restocks holiday stuff that sells out. Last year, the Tartan Tale lipsticks sold out a few times and were restocked.

    No, but that doesn't sound too promising. I am limiting shimmer as I am no longer 18 or even 25.

    I am going to the MAC counter today to look at Johnny's line!

    Oy, my Sephora haul left me a bit broke though...

    I love the Wen cleansing conditioner, but the stuff is absurdly priced. So I tried the Rusk Sensories Calm (sulfate-free) shampoo. I think I like it? Here's the weird part..in the shower, my hair never feels clean, but when I dry it, it's obviously clean. And then drying it is the other weird part...it takes me like ten minutes to blow dry it. I have baby fine hair that I normally dry in two-three minutes.

    I like the way it looks, though. Anyone else tried this stuff?

    It's the sulfates that produce all the lather we're used to. I've read the trick with sulfate-free shampoos is too make sure you use a lot of friction.

    I haven't checked out Johnny's MAC line--I just dropped some $$ at Origins so I'm too scared to walk in to MAC to even look. I wasn't going to buy anything at Origins either, but their gift sets are ABSURDLY discounted and I nearly lost my head.

    I scrubbed a ridiculous amount today and the same thing happened. It's like it's not all rinsing out of my hair.

    I broke down and ordered more Wen. Sigh.

    I've heard some good things about Sally Beauty Supply's "Hair One", supposedly it's a cheaper version of Wen. I might have to give it a try. I've never tried Wen and really want to but considering the car problems we're having, I just can't afford it right now

    I have very weak nails but my thumb toe nails always break in the corner, horizontally. I know I'm not supposed to wear ballerinas and probably should clip them in a round shape(I do that so I can get rid of the split part ASAP) but I don't know what to do until they grow up. The split of one of them is actually reaching the middle of the nail surface UGHHH

    I got a facial on Saturday, and I'm a little disappointed. She wasn't able to extract any of the issues that I have on my face (mostly milia) and I still have little bumps all over my face. I also have a small rash on my neck. I knew there might be reactions and other issues, but it's worse than I thought it would be.

    for me, facials are a waste of time.
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Yeah, I'm thinking that too. I could do almost as much for myself at home. But it's good to know that now.

    Um...super glue? Otherwise I got nothing, I have ridiculously strong nails that I inherited from my dad.

    I had one of those relaxing facials done once too and I also thought it was a disappointment. OTOH my sister went to a facialist who goes over your skin and extracts EVERYTHING. It made her cry, it's so painful, but she said it actually helped a lot.

    But IIRC this was before she got Accutane so it probably still wasn't 100% helpful.

    I knew that she couldn't fix my sebaceous hyperplasia (even a derm can't always fix that), but I had high hopes for her extracting the milia. My face is still very irritated today, it's itchy and dry.

    Well, at least I know now!

    have you had microdermabrsion or is your skin too sensitive for that?

    It appears that Korres has discontinued the watermelon tinted moisturizer, can't find it anywhere on their site or Sephora's.

    If there is a product you want off the market, let me know. I can start using it and it will go away....
