I went to Sephora last week to find a new face wash to combat my shiny summer face.  I was blown away by how knowledgeable the sales people are there.  The guy I talked to knew everything there was to know about oily, sweaty, and sensitive skin.  He recommended Boscia's Oil-Free Daily Hydration SPF 15 and Boscia's Clear Complexion Cleanser.  I love both.  I am particularly impressed with the moisturizer.  It dries completely matte.  I think I'm going to have to go back to get the night moisturizer too.

He also figured out that part of my shiny problem was that I had run out of the Bare Minerals veil and was using the powder without it.  Apparently the powder is very shiny without the veil.  I think he said it was because of the mica.  But I could be wrong.  I am annoyed about this because the last time I went to Bare Minerals to buy more powder the sales woman said the veil wasn't necessary and don't bother spending the $$.  What?  Anyway, I bought some more veil and was pleasantly surprised to find out it now comes in a travel compact.  Hooray! 

So the next time you see me make sure to notice how cool and matte I look in the hot summer heat!

The Aqua Treadmill is clever

Have you seen this Aqua Treadmill?  Basically, you propel it across the water by running inside of it.  It is seriously clever.  I first saw it on Urban Outfitters.  They have it there for $480.  That price is not a typo.  It's as expensive as it is cool.  Here's a video so you can see the awesomeness.
