About theBalm - Marissa Shipman technically founded theBalm Cosmetics in 2004 but it really began a few years earlier when she bought 11 books on “how to make makeup” and began mixing in her kitchen. Today, the products are no longer made anywhere near her kitchen and you won’t find their “recipes” in any book. theBalm boasts a full line of amazing color cosmetics along with a complete set of skincare and 33 nail polishes. The brand is known for its high quality, multipurpose products that are branded with clever, woman-empowering slogans in retro-inspired packaging. All products are cruelty free and made in the USA.

I’m hooked on these Mai Couture blush papier sheets right now. You rip out a sheet from the booklet and just rub it on your cheeks in a circular motion. Their website says to use one sheet to cover both cheeks but I’ve been ripping the sheets in half and it has been more than enough product. Each booklet contains 50 sheets.
Saw this blemish/facial trick on The Ellen Show this afternoon:
Blemish trick: Rub garlic (YES, GARLIC!) (which is a natural antiseptic) on any problem areas to gets rid of bacteria in your skin. This will help clear up zits.
Facial trick: Mash up garlic and mix with tomato paste. Rub onto your face and let it sit for 10 minutes. The lycopene and acids in the tomato helps with scarring and the garlic will pull bacteria from skin.
