A few weeks ago, my skin just up and decided to stage a mutiny. My upper body broke out in a rash. From my hairline all the way down to my torso, I was covered in itchy, sandpaper-like bumps (I now suspect eczema was the culprit). My lips didn’t even escape unscathed; they were bumpy and inflated to almost twice their normal size. And on the worst day, my left eye was so swollen and droopy, I looked like a female Forest Whitaker.
As the days wore on, the bumps started to dry out and my skin became dessicated and extremely flaky. It was as if I was a snake, shedding an exoskeleton. The dryness of my face was unbearable. With every facial expression or movement of my mouth, it seemed like my skin would literally tear; it was so painful. Up until this point, I had only been using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser – as it was all that my traumatized skin could handle. But it begged for more, so I dug through my skin care arsenal looking for a moisturizer substantial enough to quench my skin’s thirst, but gentle enough not to send it into another tizzy. I hit the jackpot when I came across a sample of Clinique Comfort On Call Allergy Tested Relief Cream that the brand sent me a few months ago to review.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about this cream. My skin is the true testament. After just a few days of using Comfort On Call Allergy Tested Relief Cream, I started to recognize the reflection in the mirror again. And now that the rash (and its remnants) are almost gone, I continue to apply the cream after cleansing in the AM and PM.
According to Clinique, I’ve got their “exclusive, patent-pending Enviro-Soothe™ Complex” to thank for soothing and saving my face. Clinique also promises that when “used over time, it strengthens skin’s lipid barrier to support natural healing.”
Comfort On Call Allergy Tested Relief Cream also works wonders on dry, cracked hands. I can’t think of a better winter skin care pick than this one; it earns Holy Grail status. If you suffer from reactive, sensitive or dry skin, you’d be a smart gal to add it to your shopping list.
Clinique Comfort On Call Allergy Tested Relief Cream is available at clinique.com, Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, and Nordstrom.
MAC’s newest collections – Love Lace, Warm & Cozy, and In The Studio – weren’t supposed to be released until December 26. But from the looks of the MAC website, they’ve given us an early Christmas present.
Happy shopping – and let me know, in the comments, what you buy!
No, you’re not seeing double. Last week, Diddy unveiled his wax doppleganger at Madame Tussauds New York.
Diddy spent more than an hour with a team of Madame Tussauds studio artists to start the creation process with him. The artists took hundreds of precise measurements and photos, to ensure exact matches for his eye color and skin tone.
Diddy also donated a replica of the outfit he wore in his I Am King fragrance ad, which includes a white Battistoni dinner jacket, black dinner trousers by Jones New York, Hugo Boss white tuxedo shirt, black Ferragamo shoes and a black bowtie, cufflinks and shirt studs by Pronto Uomo.
If you visit Diddy’s wax figure and get close enough, you might catch a whiff of “unique masculine freshness, sparkling fruits and sensual woods”…because Diddy, being Diddy, provided Madame Tussauds with a bottle of I Am King to spray on his wax twin. Personally, I’m partial to Unforgivable, his first fragrance.
