Last summer when my hormonal breakouts began, I thought it might have been the makeup I was using, so I decided to ask around and see what makeup others recommended. I began with my friend Jill.

It should be patented.
One thing she was effective in getting me to do is investing in Bare Minerals…and one look at her skin and you can understand why.

DDF is a brand that I was turned on to not because someone told me about it, but because I saw it in someone’s medicine cabinet…and that certain someone has impeccable skin that I ADMIRE and so I thought to myself, “this may be her secret!”
Well, despite our founding fathers saying that “all men are created equal” I must disagree: not all men are created equal, and thus not all skin is equal. That is why, to my great dismay (and that of my pocket), this product did not work for me. « Read the rest of this entry »

One of my girlfriends asked me, well you posted a wishlist but who in your life should get you those products? What is an appropriate gift to give?
