Product: The Original Mint Julup Masque from Queen Helene
Ad: "Helps dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads & shrink enlarged pores:
Contains: water, kaolin, bentonite, glycerin, zinc oxide, propylene glycol, sulfur, chromium oxide greens, fragrance, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben

All righties, first off I would like to say that I'm pretty sure the mask does what it's purported to do. After using it, my skin feels smooth and refreshed and I have the sense that SOMETHING has been done about my acne.

Unfortunately, I refuse to use the mask on a day when I have to work or do much of anything else. Why, you ask? Well, when you squeeze it from the tube the minty scent is very strongly reminiscent of toothpaste. Green, goopy toothpaste that you glob on your skin and spread until it's not too thick, which is difficult because it has the consistency of toothpaste as well.

There's a vague sensation of tingling heat over your entire face. You want to watch out though, because a lot of people find themselves allergic to zinc oxide. So if you have any real burning sense, rinse it off and keep an eye out for redness or swelling.

And here's the reason why I don't use it on a day when I have to do anything... when it's all rinsed off and done, even if you scrub with soap or whatever... you still get a stinky sense of sulfur. Just vague whiffs of sulfur when you least expect them that are really hard to wash away.

Still, I use the Mint Julup Masque because it actually seems to be doing something for my skin. Though it would be a lot better if it didn't have such a lingering sulfur scent, 'cause yuck.

I don't know what's wrong with me. Even knowing I dislike them, I still waste my money buying herbal teas that I can't force myself to gag down. I'm sorry, I know there's tons of people out there that love them, but they smell and taste like potpourri and that just totally turns my stomach. I want to be edgy and cool and take a ride on the herbal tea train of awesomeness, but... they make me want to gag.

Latest herbal tea failure: chai spice black tea. cinnamon and ginger added to black tea. Fragrant aroma. Makes me think of incense.

Whoa, I just tried Dawn Direct Foam and that stuff works freakishly well. I was actually a little scared...

Two squirts of foam on the scrubber, and suddenly my dishes were almost cleaning themselves. It was well worth a Keanu Reeves-esque "Whoa."

Okay, I am officially pleased with the new OpenOffice.  The first one left me a little questioning, because there were some things it wouldn't do, and it would totally crap out when I tried to copy and paste to Semagic (or rather, Semagic would be the one to crap out and totally shut down.  But it was OpenOffice's fault, the bitch.)

Anyways, the new OpenOffice is very sweet and prettyful and well worth the cost of FREE.  It does everything I want it to do, works well with Thunderbird, and very much of the awesome.  I'm actually starting to like it more than Microsoft Word.  Why, you ask? Because it's constantly being updated, it's gotten pretty darn sleek looking, and you know what? Doesn't contain even a quarter of the Microsoft EVIL.  Nice.

Go, download OpenOffice, play with it, and relish the free, constantly updated software.

Some of the tee shirts at T-Shirt Hell are severely offensive to people suffering from a lack of humor, but for everyone else... it's worth a few giggles. Check it out T-SHIRT HELL.

A co-worker actually said to me yesterday, "You're too pretty to be mean." It was and still is worth a giggle...

I'm dyeing my hair today. I bought a box of L'Oreal Paris Couleur Experte "4.3 Warm Spiced Chestnut" hair color. My hair should be a dark golden brown with streaks of lighter color running through it.

Spiced chestnut color over my whole head with highlights that range from deep gold to red. Hopefully it won't end up looking like freeze-dried crap.
