I was lucky enough to be invited for a private event showcasing a new bespoke skincare line based out of Asian called Skin Inc. We all know how much I love all skincare from Asia, they’re just so much more advanced!!! More so with this line than ever before with any other, it’s completely customized for your skin. You take a skincare test AKA a Skin Identity addressing your concerns and ailments, et voila, it tells you the 3 serums you need to mix together to make YOUR perfect serum. I was given the trio of Ceramide, Licorice, & Hyaluronic Acid, which helps with moisture, brightening and plumping, all three things I normally have to tackle with individual products. My other favorite product I tried from the line is the Pure Revival Peel, it’s like nothing I’ve ever used which is hard to say because I’m a product junky and have tried almost everything under the sun. The Peel comes out like a gel until it turns to a milky color, then you start to massage into your skin and it becomes a grainy like texture that removes all impurities in the skin and once washed off you’re left with bright super-soft skin. What’s not to love????
Skin Inc will be launching in NYC this week at select Sephora locations throughout the city, in the mean time you can go to their site and take your Skin Identity test!!!
I’ve taken quite the hiatus from my blog and have no real good excuses aside from personal reasons. Moving forward, its time for me to start writing again and ranting about beauty and sex!
Currently these are a few of my favorite things, I don’t go a day without using at least one on these items… Moscow Mule included!
Over the last year I’ve been flirting with the idea of getting Botox, which may surprise some of you because everyone already assumes I have it because people in the non-aesthetic world assume all injectables are Botox and when I say I get my lips done they ignorantly say “Oh Botox?” and it drives me fucking crazy.
During Christmas time my friend and I swapped each other our typical treatments at the plastic surgeon and she got her fill of Juvederm and I went for the Botox. We went to Dr.Robert Morin, who’s also a friend so we went in with good spirits and sat there laughing, that was until the needles came out. I have a lot less of a fear with needles than my friend does, she was mildly freaking out about the idea of needles in her lips even though she has had Botox a handful of times. It was very reminiscent of taking your kid into getting a shot that they need, I sat that trying to coach her upon how to handle the pain and squeeze my hand as I would consider myself a lip filler vet (9 years of it, you don’t bat an eyelash cause you know how great it looks after). Once she was finished it was my turn, I was losing my Botox virginity, with no lube. A few quick injections later, we left the office and went our separate ways, I was told Botox takes a few days to kick in, so everyday until then i was making wacky faces seeing if my forehead still moved… it did. I’m not so sure how I feel about Botox, i got a really bad headache from it the first 24 hours, which apparently is rare, then once it settled in I hated feeling frozen in my own skin and I didn’t even get that much so I can’t imagine how celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Courtney Cox or Portia De Rossi must feel because they are full of it. A week after it settled I got used to it and couldn’t feel it anymore, sadly not even 2 months later it had already worn off, so as I sit here writing this I am free of Botox and asking myself am I ready to commit to it or wait a couple years? I’m not sure if I am ready to get in that serious of a relationship yet, but maybe we can have some flings here and there.
