Sponsored Post: SECRET Body Lotion Review + A Chance To Review It ALSO



In the interest of keeping things fresh and sexy (as P. Diddy once said, a quote my gal Andrea Lavinthal and I drop on a regular), I accepted a challenge to review a body lotion blindly from a drugstore brand. I have no idea what this is. It literally came in a giant box with a big fat question mark on it. So like a good scientist, I did a lab. Read on... 


I slathered it on post shower and observed these things.
1. It smells faintly of fresh cucumber; a pleasant, light fragrance.
2. It spreads easily and absorbs quickly into the skin and hydrates, but not overly so. It makes a good summer go-to body lotion.
3. My somewhat flaky knees and heels are less so after having slathered them up with this mystery product for the past few days.

This mystery brand has even offered to let five lucky readers test the product out and review it, as well.






To enter the blind trial,
 leave a comment telling me what you'd like to see more (or less!) of on BBJ. To gain a second entry, follow me on Twitter (@Glambr) and tweet me your response with hashtag #secretlotion. Obtain a third entry by liking Beauty Blogging Junkie on Facebook and writing secret lotion on the wall. 

Winners will have to test the product and report back to me via email with their thoughts on the item within one week. The deadline for entry is Monday, April 9 at 11:59pm. Five winners will be chosen at random and announced on this post the following day.

Good luck!



This post is sponsored by the mystery brand (seriously, I have no idea), but all opinions shared are my own.

New: Ellis Faas Spring Gift Set



The question is what the eff to wear to your Passover/Easter celebrashe. The answer? Ellis Faas' new Spring Gift Set. It's pastels with a dusty meets milky tone in creamy textures. It's an edgy pastel. Think of it as the Daria Morgendorffer of pastels, but pretty enough for Quinn. You remember Daria's sister Quinn? She had that friend who was always like, "Quiiinnnnnnnn. If you want to be a member of the FASHION CLUB..."


The set contains the Creamy Eyes E106, a lilac taupe that's PERF to create a softer smokey eye. The lilac Light E304 can be used for amethyst-like sparkly highlights. To complete the set, Ellis chose the juicy, nude pink Milky Lips L207, which compliments the eye products.

Ellis Faas' Spring Gift Set is available on ellisfaas.com for $85.

La la la la la...

Fictionary: Horr-ends


Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don't exist, but should.

Here's the thing: If you want long hair, you can pretty much never get your hair cut. That's the dirty little secret about growing your locks to Disney princess lengths. Virtually no hairstylist will allow you to get just teeny trims (Matthew Fugate at Sally Hershberger Downtown will, but only because he's a veritable UNICORN). Otherwise, you really need to limit your snip seshes to twice a year.


But YES. Seldom snippage leads to Horr-ends. It's an amalgam of horrend(ous) ends. Bonus: It's a homonym for whore-ends. It also ties in nicely with the Polari term for hair.  I know, without regular trims, your ends are a bigger disast than New Coke. What to do?

Enter John Frieda Perfect Ends Sheer Mist ($8 at target.com). Made with Inca Inchi, a micro-oil rich in omega-3, this lightweight mist quickly gets INTO your ravaged ends, mending them (virtually, your ends are still actually frayed, unfortunately, until you get involved with scissors) into their former glossy glory. It's the follicular equivalent of a WITCH DOCTOR.

When I spray a little on my hair before blowing it out, I find I'm on the receiving end of a STRANGE amount of compliments about my hair. Which is always the goal. Because really: How else do I know my products are working?

What are your favorite stave-off-a-snip methods? SHARE HOROWITZ. Go.

This stuff? REALLY it, unlike what Bill's hawking here.
