Guess what doesn't mix well?

Okay, yes Lindsey and whiskey.
[Also, see: Lindsey and tequila.]
But this isn't about that. It's...


"But Lindsey, you're in your early 30's? Why do you have acne?"

Why, what a brilliant question!  [That no one can seem to answer.]  
I blame: NYC, stress, men, my mom, weather, my clients, and all the people I don't like for it.

HOWEVER- I have finally found the first product that actually works on those horrific, volcanic, undergrounder pain pimples.  Behold:
Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion

And no, I am not getting paid to write about this. I'm writing about it because it freaking works and let's face it, dating and face craters mix about as well as peanut butter and olives. 

In other news, I have no other news. Not much to report to you today since Jimmy (ie. the guy I had to remind to get my number after spending 2.5 hours talking to me) has not yet remembered to call me.  After I left, apparently his friend told my friend CH that I was going to "have to be aggressive with this one." Um...I already made him take my number.  I cannot make him use it, however.  So c'mon, Jimmy!  Be a big boy.  Go big or go home. Let's do this!

I will continue to remain optimistic, although we are nearing the 3 day point here.  Luckily, thanks to my miracle buffering lotion, my facial leprosy should be gone soon in the case that he does call.  
Ah, the waiting....


  1. this sounds like a great product! my whole life i never had acne until i turned 21. it all went down hill from there. i was at work one day and a girl had mentioned how she washes her face with a clean towel and water. no soap, no medicine, nothing. so i decided to try it. within 3 days my face started clearing up. it was crazy, and it sounds crazy. i have been doing this for 2 weeks now, and it has worked great. but if it stops working i will have to try this product! good luck on jimmy!
    love the stories.


  2. I ordered this because my skin could really use some help! It just came in the mail and I'm excited to use it! Would you please post more about the wonderful beauty products you use?

  3. Great idea, Lauren! As you can imagine, I have more products than a single person should ever have. A friend once opened my bathroom cabinet and said "Ooh! It's like a Duane Reade in here!" [Duane Reade is our prominent NYC drugstore chain.}
    **Note: on the Badescu buffering lotion, MAKE SURE to shake it up first. Directions should say to, but you want to make sure all that magic potion mixes together before you apply.
    Happy gorgeousness!

  4. I ordered the buffering lotion... but how do you apply it? It's so runny, i'm not sure the best way, and it seems to run off my finger before I can dab it on!
    Also, another face wash to try; Clean & Clear Advantage 3-1 exfoliating cleanser. I LOVE it and use it every morning!
