Now, you lovelies know how hard it is for a woman like myself with such an unhealthy addiction to beauty products to stick to a single product, no less a regimen for a certain period of time. But, I promised my friends at First Aid Beauty I would commit to using the entire Dual Repair Collection for 6 consecutive weeks. I cleared out a place on my vanity (so I wouldn’t be tempted to cheat) and set up the Dual Repair products like good little soldiers in order of application — First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Power Serum ($48), First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Eye Cream ($40), and First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Face Cream ($44).
Every morning and night I applied all three products and after the first few weeks (as I wrote about here) I noticed substantial results in the texture of my skin and its usual hyper-sensitivity. As we all know my drama queen skin tends to take any tiny environmental or hormonal change and blow it up into a huge ugly tantrum that usually results in red patches and whiteheads. Lovely. I’ll just say there have been a lot of both environmental and hormonal changes in the past 6 weeks that would usually put my skin into a tail spin, but instead it was like the Dual Repair Line shook my skin’s shoulders and gave it a pep talk, “Be strong! You don’t have to overreact to every little problem!”janna Tags Anti-aging, FAB, First Aid Beauty, Moisturizer, Sensitive Skin

I love guessing blind items in the gossip rags, but why should the tabloids have all the fun? If you see a celebrity commit a major beauty faux pas make sure you email me at email@example.com so we can run it as a blind item and help the offending celeb fix the issue!
Which gorgeous starlet, famous for her unique multi-cultural looks, who got her big break on a popular late night “news” show and now is gracing every red carpet because of her role on Aaron Sorkin’s “news” show, showed up in red carpet close ups with a face covered in glaring blackheads?? When I say blackheads, I’m not talking about a sprinkle over the nose… Let’s put it this way, they were so big and black, completely blanketing her forehead, nose, cheeks and chin, at first I thought they were freckles! Our starlet does in fact have some freckles but they’re tough to find in the oil fields. She also had an unhealthy dose of greasy shine to keep the blackheads company. GROSS!
So what should have our pretty starlet done prior to hitting the red carpet??
