The deuce: Frizz Ease Secret Weapon
I came to a screeching realization a few years ago that I'll never be one of those people who spends gobs of money on their hair. So why bother with expensive products that will maayybbee make my hair look fantastic, but will not allow me the opportunity to order a pizza once in a while, because I'm FLAT ASS BROKE?!?!
TRES: Nivea First Kiss Lip Balm (way to have a twitter account, yo!)
Growing up, the only beauty secret that I knew of my grandmother's was that she STRICTLY used Nivea products. Now, when I say my grandmother was a total babe, I'm not just saying that because she was my grandma - I'm preaching the truth! My hopes are that I have some of her wicked skin genes, and that I'll ease into my retirement years w/ drop dead gorgeous skin. FINGERS CROSSED!
Vier: Burt's Bees Hand Salve
My father is one of those refined hippies that has a well paying job, and an SUV. Every Christmas, he fills our stockings with products that I guarantee, no other child gets! Take for example (if you will) this years haul: a mini frying pan fit for one egg, a deodorant crystal, and a "picture a day" calendar about the history of shoes. I LOVE YOU, DAD! YOU'LL BE HAPPY TO KNOW I'M FINALLY GETTING AROUND TO USING THE HAND SALVE YOU GOT ME!
Did I ever tell you about the time I thought it'd be a bright idea to get acrylic nails?! I wish that I had a crew following me around to document my every move for about a week following that experience. Every movement, from taking my wallet out of my bag, to buttoning my jeans in the morning was complete AGONY! When the time came to remove my Flo Jo's, I was horrified to learn that my temporary claws had left my own wee nails underneath brittle, bendy, and unfit to enter into a social situation. This product took care of that problem lickety split.
