These Soap Bars For Your Face Will Make You Rethink Your Cleanser

After years of being shunned by many beauty gurus in favour of liquid and foaming alternatives, right now bar soap is making a comeback as a facial cleanser. Our understanding of soap has evolved and many brands have moved away from including fragrances (which can dry the skin). Sam Bunting explains: “modern cleansing bars are formulated to maintain skin’s delicate acid mantle and those labelled noncomedogenic will be a safe bet for those with acne-prone skin.” A key thing to remember is to “avoid cleansing bars which are fragranced or which contain essential oils if your skin is sensitive or prone to redness.

I’m Diggin’ Distortion: The Urban Decay Distortion Eyeshadow Palette

Most of the time when people say that something is shifty…it’s not usually a good thing, but when you’re talking about the new Urban Decay Distortion Eyeshadow Palette ($49), being shifty is great.
Five “shifty” duo chrome shadows
New limited edition Distortion just landed at Urban Decay, and the kicker is that top row of pale pastel-looking eyeshadows — one, two, three, four, five.
They look pale pastel in the pans, but they’re actually duo chromes that change color in the light. They’re designed to be layered on top of the other 10 eyeshadows in the palette, the ones in the middle and bottom rows.
You can definitely also wear them on top of any other eyeshadows in your collection, too, because there’s no exclusive high-tech stuff happening here, LOL! (But wouldn’t it be kinda cool and sci-fi if there were, though? More…….

Some burn their skin brown, others poison it white

Westerners expose their skin to harsh UV rays (natural or artificial) to get a tan, and risk skin cancer, while here they try to lighten their skins with hazardous creams containing dangerous dosages of mercury and hydroquinone. In the East white skin suggests “I’m not a farmer and have a chauffeur, so don’t get sun burnt walking around in the day, etc. In other words, I’m hi-so. observer90210 If it had arsenic in it, some would still use it, born in the wrong place maybe and forget beauty is not just skin deep.

Cleansing Balm reviews: Farmacy, Pixi, Emma Hardie, Ole Henriksen, Caolion

I’ve been a fan of cleansing oils for a while (see e.g. Cleansing Oil Reviews). I love how quickly they get rid of my make-up, and how they protect my dehydration-prone skin. But the tiny thing that annoys me a little about cleansing oils is that they can be a bit fiddly to get onto my…

Surprise: Your face mist might be making your skin worse

Once upon a time, at a previous magazine where I was surrounded by beauty editors, we would engage in hourly face-misting breaks, during which one editor would spritz her face with a mist and promptly trigger a reaction of editors misting their faces in a row, like a chain of vain, skin-obsessed sneezes. And, as I later learned, it wasn’t because I was living in a constant state of stress (I mean, I was, but whatever), but because of my face mist. Yes, my glorious group of mists were actually drying out my skin, and it was all because of some very basic chemistry principles I promptly forgot after 10th grade: that water molecules attract water molecules, like sticky little magnets.
