28 years ago yesterday I met this dude and he hasn't managed to get rid of me since. Four kids later we're older, much greyer (me), blinder (both of us), deaf (him), chubbier (both of us), sarcastic as ever (both of us), laugh at inappropriate moments (both of us), and take the most pleasure from mortifying our children at any given opportunity. What a ride.
Updated 10pm - they have now discontinued this product. Good work @talontedlex and @britbeautyblog
Updated 1.15pm - This has been pulled from the UK market. No word on whether or not it has been pulled from the USA or International. Let's hope you don't have a lot of British/Aussie clients in this territories eh?
Updated 11.50am - @spacenk have also contacted me to say that they will not be selling this product.
I spoke to @cultbeauty who confirmed that they will 'absolutely NOT' be stocking the 'Wax Spastic' liner from @smithandcult - you can explain it away as 'art' all you like, but when people pull you up on what the literal meaning of the word is, and you choose to move forward with the product anyway, AND use it as a hashtag for your brand, you're a bunch of idiots. I expect @netaporter won't be touching it either, being the sensible retailer that they also are. Do better @smithandcult - DO. BETTER.
Thanks to @talontedlex for the head's up.
Right we're back. Came home to this heat, and whilst I love a good glow, sweating is not my preferred look, so here's a picture of me at the Pixi store in LA from a couple of months ago while I get on with takeout, washing and blogging.
This is why I'm not allowed in Modern Art galleries. It's either this face or inappropriate giggles. Give me the classics or photography any day. Poor Mr Hirons, avoiding my eye while he tries to walk around in peace. he's like this and I alternate between or . It's ok. In our defense, we didn't realise one floor was almost entirely dedicated to Lady Gardens.
'If you build it, they will come.' @clarinsuk Double Serum has been renovated and updated for 2017 and no longer includes mineral oil. Coming to a counter near you in September. *tries and fails to contain self*

Note: this is not recommended use of product as usual, it's a cautionary tale.
So I'm dehydrated from the retinol and was giving it a break this evening. I applied the Clarins Intensive Bi-Phase Serum: fine. Skin was damp and comfortable. I thought 'ooh I'll put the Pacifica on top, that's nice and watery and it will hydrate and soothe.' No. I applied the Pacifica and immediately - not after a minute or so - immediately - my skin is on fire. FI-YURE. So I grab my hair towel, hold it to my face while screaming into it, and let it absorb into the towel. Hint - never rub off an aggravating product, that's asking for trouble. I then spray the One Love Organics with one hand while frantically mumbling 'WHERE THE F**K IS MY VIT D?' and opening my stash with the other. Quelle drama. Find my Zelens, can't get it onto my face quickly enough. Skin immediately . Then I chuck the Ceramidin Liquid on top for water, knowing my skin will be parched after that ridiculousness. Honestly, on paper, the Pacifica is great, I get on with nearly all their products. I will try it again one day, but not while my skin is mid-retinol. Christ on a Bike I almost had kittens. #365inskincare #365inbadlifechoices
The tale of this evening's cleanse: Farmacy's Green Clean Balm which I enjoy, a hydrid between an oil and gel and great at removing makeup. Followed by Youth To The People's Kale and Green Tea Spinach thing, which to be honest, I bought because I was bingeing on cleansers in LA. The name made me but I was intrigued. This left me a little too dehydrated and while I suspect it's quite alkaline, I am in the middle of retinol'ing and it may just be me. I'll test it tomorrow. Part two coming up which is where my face went #365inskincare
