Success! I have become higher maintenance.

Remember when I expressed a desire to up my high maintenance game? (Yes, seriously)

Well, I have succeeded. Aren’t you proud of me?


I’d like to thank Courtney Forrest and by extension, Jaime Maser, for making me aware of M61 Power Glow Peel, a glycolic and salicylic acid exfoliating peel you apply with a pre-moistened towelette. It smells amazing, but in a natural, no fragrance added way. I’m ready to buy them by the hundred.

I got Botox. My only regret? That I didn’t start sooner.

I even used the Snapchat beauty filter (OK, a lot).

But now I want to start using eye cream. These long trips have me feeling puffy. Any recommendations?

Update: I bought this toner today and will let you know how I like it.

Update #2: I got a sample of this Sunday Riley cream and loved it so much that I plans to save my pennies and buy it. Another sample of this Tata Harper mask was also excellent.

So yeah, I’m doing pretty well on this high maintenance mission.

    Did you just say START using eye cream? I’ve been using eye creams and serums since I was 18. My sister instilled this theory that if I keep my skin healthy and elastic while it’s already healthy and elastic, it’ll never get saggy or wrinkly… it’s not entirely true, but I do it. I use Dr. Dennis Gross’s Retenol and Ferulic eye serum. It’s expensive, but I’m not allergic to it and it seems to work really well.

      Yep, I said start. My skincare regimen to date couldn’t even be called a regimen. I basically just washed (Cetaphil; I need to change that) and moisturized (Clinique yellow stuff, not the gel alternating with Even Better which has SPF 20). Is that weird?

        Well, a couple years ago I went to a skin care demo and got berated for using hand soap as facewash… but now I swear by Purpose facewash, Aveeno BB cream (spf30,) Dr. Dennis Gross undereye gel serum. Night time I clarisonic my face and put on a revitalizing night cream.
