Dr-Brandt-Pores-No-More-Vacuum-Cleaner-Blackhead-Extractor.jpgOkay, we know. This skincare product has one of the craziest names you’ve ever heard. Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Blackhead Extractor is long, unwieldy and, we admit it, sounds pretty darn scary.

But here’s the thing. This product really and truly works. Just smooth onto your skin for five minutes, rinse off, and voila! No more blackheads. We promise.

This is due to alpha and beta hydroxy acids, silicone dioxide and eijitsu rose, which all work to loosen blackheads and absorb excess oil from your pores. This product also unclogs and tightens pores, AND it exfoliates the skin at the same time! What more could you ask for, right?

We will say this. After only a few uses, our skin looks amazing—especially the area on our nose which is usually cluttered with so many blackheads we look like we’ve got freckles. Thanks, Dr. Brandt!

thickeningbumble_smh.jpgSephora samples and wavy hair diaries collide! A Bumble & Bumble Creme de Coco user for a few years now (ever since I got the best haircut of my life and the stylist used it), I was excited to get a Bb. sample at Sephora when I purchased Stella Sheer.

Bumble & Bumble Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner smells fantastic. It also seemed to really work. My hair did feel thicker the next day, which isn’t a great thing for me because my hair is already crazy thick. It’s not a product I’d buy because I’m on a wash-slather-on-moroccan-oil-and-go kind of kick and my hair, being as full as it already is, seemed a little frizzier after I used it (although I did go swimming).

MOR-Blood-Orange-Lip-Delight.jpgLooking for a lip balm that will really make your pout pucker? Turn to MOR Blood Orange Lip Delight.

This balm is filled with ruby red Italian blood oranges, jasmine, rose and lily of the valley for a scent that delights and awakens the senses. It slicks onto the lips so easily—we just love how soft and moisturized they feel immediately upon contact. We also love that the balm is sheer, imparting no color but tons of sheen and shine.

And the tin, oh, the tin! Have you ever seen anything more gorgeous? The bright orange tin covered in gold scrollwork is so vintage-looking—perfect atop any vanity.

If you’re looking for a lip balm that’s equally gorgeous in display and application, this is most definitely the one for you.

MOR Blood Orange Lip Delight retails for $14 at
