Ultra Monday


As I type this, it's T minus 15 minutes and counting until The Hills season continuation premiere!


But I want to tell you about something else.  Something serious.  A new facial cleanser on the market!


Last week, I stopped into Kiehl's to pick up my favorite cleanser, the Washable Face Milk and I also snagged some samples of the brand spanking new Ultra Facial Cleanser.

Since I also regularly use the company's Ultra Facial Cream, I was pretty psyched to make all the bottles on my sink match.


Honestly?  I wish I could tell you that I loved it.

Well, I could.

But I would be lying.

It comes out looking like shampoo, very viscous and cloudy looking.  And it feels like honey spreading onto your face.  I happen to prefer a little less work in the evenings to get my cleanser on my face.

It lathers up really well once you start rinsing it off, but I felt it took a lot to get it all off my face.  And then my face didn't feel squeaky clean.

To be sure, it was a little disappointing.  

But then again, I'm sure The Hills will be too.  I heard Justin Bobby is back though!  Maybe not so disappointing....

While I've yet to have an appointment with my DVR to watch last night's Hills, it is great to know that it's not worth trying to the new Kiehls face wash. A woman at Bloomingdale's tried to get me to try it just the other day. Good info.

I've been reading (and laughing, learning, and enjoying) for a few months now but haven't posted. I'm wondering if you've seen The Real Housewives of NYC on Bravo. It's one of those trashy yet delightful guilty pleasure reality shows. I read a review of it and the writing sounded like yours so it made me think of you. I'm sure your comments on it would be hilarious.

Also, how is DC in the summer? I've applied for several political internships and now have the choice of Boston or DC.

DC in the summer is steamy and preppy. Have you a good fake ID?

I actually caught the minimarathon of the Wives this weekend and as a native I was pretty much appalled. I love trashy TV, but that show gives NYers a bad name.

I agree with Anon, DC in the summer is like a Bikram yoga class...but all day long. However, the summer is also chock full of interns and stuff to do! I recommend it, and be careful with the fake ID, and stay away form anything involving the words "Smith" and "Point."

Organoderm Skin Care Safe for Pregnant Mothers and Children
Organoderm skin care products are USDA certified organic or Circle of Green certified or both, which makes these products safe for pregnant women and children. The USDA label confirms that no synthetic preservatives are present, while the Circle of Green label assures the consumer that no harmful chemicals are within the formulations.
Newport Beach, Ca (PRWEB) April 16, 2008 -- Organoderm skin care products are USDA certified organic or Circle of Green certified or both, which makes these products safe for pregnant women and children. The USDA label confirms that no synthetic preservatives are present, while the Circle of Green label assures the consumer that no harmful chemicals are within the formulations.
"I was afraid to use any skin care products during my pregnancies," said Michelle Caldero. "I was concerned it would hurt my babies." The average woman uses 12 personal care products containing about 168 chemicals per day according to a survey from the Envirnomental Working Group, many of which are considered harmful by various governmental agencies. "I was happy to discover Organoderm products, and now I am using them on my children," continued Michelle, the mother of two young daughters.
The USDA has strict criteria for certification and allows products to display the USDA seal only if they contain 95% or more certified organic ingredients and no synthetic petrochemical byproducts. The Circle of Green prohibits a long list of harmful chemicals in products that it certifies. Their list is a complation of several sources including the Environmental Protection Agency and is updated periodically.
"It was challenging to meet the strict criteria of these two certifying agencies, but it was important to me," said Dr. Edward Domanskis, a plastic surgeon who founded and developed the Organoderm skin care line. "I too wanted not only my wife but also my children to be safe in using my products."
Organoderm is sold exclusively through the internet, and its oversized products are reasonably priced from $12-$42, especially for a Doctor-developed and recommended brand.
