Wednesday Quickies

Ok, as I promised yesterday, here are a few random, quick bites of beauty info to tide you over. Tomorrow I'll be giving you some gift ideas for the men in your life!

Here's a paradox: many people with oily skin often feel that they need a little extra moisturizer. This is my theory...some of the skin cleansing products designed for acne-prone or oily skin often strip away the skin's natural moisture. Sure, this helps control shine, but it can also take away some of the nutrients your skin needs. But using a regular moisturizer if you have oily skin can lead to way too much moisture, excess shine, and breakouts. So what are you to do?

The Body Deli may have just the product for you. Their new Flash Flood Light Facial Emulsion moisturizer is a revolutionary new product designed to retain skin’s moisture while controlling excess oil. The Body Deli folks took two years to design a product that uses ionic minerals that would hydrate, soften, and smooth the skin while controlling excess oil and breakouts.

My husband has oily skin and he's been using this product for about a month and a half. He likes the lightweight feel and the fact that he's getting the perfect amount of hydration. Try it out!

It's that time of year again...the time when you get together with your family and friends and get your picture snapped. You want to look your best in photos, but let's face it...watching America's Next Top Model will not help us, mere mortals, learn how to get a good shot. Well, Carson Kressley from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and How to Look Good Naked fame has teamed up with Nikon to give us pointers we can use. Click here to check out their video!

LaLicious is offering a holiday special: free shipping on any order over $50 now through the end of the year. Just enter code FREESHIPPING08 when you check out from their website. They sell yummy bath and body products that make great gifts for your friends and for yourself!


I was window shopping online the other day and saw the cutest makeup bag (below) at this site. It's too darn cute and would make the perfect gift for a woman who does a lot of traveling. I don't know why I liked it so much, but there you go!

I think The Body Deli might be on to something there. Yes, even oily skin needs some moisturizer--but one that balances the skin out.
