At a company holiday party last week, the conversation turned to beauty products – as it usually does when I’m around. Two coworkers told me the same harrowing story – okay, maybe I’m being a bit melodramatic, but it wasn’t a good story.
Both women recently paid a visit to their local Bath & Body Works and were tempted into purchasing items from the Holiday Temptations line (not a surprise, given the yummy packaging). After taking the products home and using them, they were taken aback by the stains left on their tubs and towels.
We never got around to discussing how well the products work, but let’s be real – a shower gel had better get me squeaky clean (and wash away my cellulite) if it’s going to stain my shower.

As I was prepping for my TV appearance last week, I decided to do a little experimentation. After using my Freeze 24/7 Freeze & Go to brighten the area under my eyes, I decided to dot it along my cheekbones. Looking in the mirror at the time, I didn’t notice a difference; but watching the video, I’m amazed at how much it accentuated my bone structure.
Freeze & Go is lightweight, silicone brightener that can be worn under or over makeup to fix fine lines, absorb excess oil, and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores and imperfections. And it comes in a portable, metallic, pod-like package, complete with a removable mirror and metered dosage – so that you can look fab on the fly!
It so irks me when celebs try to ‘outwit’ us regular folks. Every time I turn around, some superstar (or superstar wannabe) is playing the ‘deviated septum card’ to trade in their honker for a more sculpted schnoz.
What ticks me off even more is when they have the nerve to tell other women to be comfortable in their own skin and love themselves – then they sneak off to have elective surgery. I mean, if you’re not comfortable addressing it in the media – don’t discuss it. Or be completely honest about it and say, ‘I hated my old nose, so I got a new one” or “I’ll get a lot more work with this less ethnic nose.” But don’t insult my intelligence.
