In The Bag | What Do The CW’S ‘Ringer’ And My Skin Have To Do With Each Other?
Have you spent the past hour or so reading the headline of this article pondering? Is my skin similar to the skin of my…EVIL TWIN? Is my skin soft like…A STRIPPER’S SKIN? Is my skin the subject of….A GIANT FACE PHOTOGRAPH THAT TAKES UP THE MAIN ENTRY WAY OF MY HOUSE?
I’m sorry to let you guys down, but it’s none of these. Well, except for maybe the middle one? In fact, my skin officially has nothing in common with the TV show Ringer. I used that as a cheap ploy to get you to read this article.
But there is a correlation, albeit it a nominal one. Last night, sitting my adorable fanny down to review and recap the latest episode of Ringer, I was shocked to discover that there was no new episode! GASP! No SMG to see me through my pathetic excuse for a Tuesday night? Whatever was a girl to do?
With no social life to speak of and my plans for the evening ripped asunder, I decided to moisturize! Ha ha, I am awesome. I like that I went from ‘Oh MAN, the T.V. show I want to watch isn’t on? Well. I guess I’ll apply an excessive amount of product to my person and see what happens…AGAIN.”
It turned out this was the right choice, since I’d been itching to try Skin Trip ever since reading about it over on XOJane – a site I adore (JANEPRATTHAVEMYBABIES)- you want to see a grown-up commenting community of pretty ill (in the hip, slang way) folks, head over there for a spell.
I’m picky about my lotions and potions, and while I’ve recently started indulging in oils in order to bludgeon my quickly approaching thirties to death (I AM A CLICHE AND ALSO QUITE VIOLENT!) it still takes something pretty light-weight but effective to make me purr instead of hurling the bottle at the secret weak spot of my greatest enemy, the minotaur from Greek mythology.
Skin Trip? This shit is magic. It’s lightly scented with coconut but in a non-irritating non-tween girl way (Sorry tweens – you is SOL) – it’s more milky than nutty. Which sounds hilarious, but I stand by it. Additionally, it’s super nice to my super sensitive skin. What I’m saying is if your skin keeps falling off use this and might not. Plus also winter is coming, and this shit makes you think about summer and surfing and boys and possibly using Sun In.
To cap it off, the bottle is hippie chic in a super awesome way, plus this noise is inexpensive, so get to shopping and don’t say I never did you any favors because girl, you know I treat you right.
