All Skate!

Penny Pinch

I want to buy this moisturizer from LUSH, but I can’t make myself spend $90 on it. I hate that feeling. Why can’t I be Beyonce? Where is my internet money, dammit!?


Is there a product you lust after, but can’t bring yourself to buy? Should we start a lemonade stand together? Bikini carwash? I could be a Hollywood madame, I guess.

That settles it. Hollywood madame it is!

  1. WHY. Why do you want this? The ingredients list is almost all stuff I have in my pantry…except, PARABENS. WHAT!? In an “All natural” brand????? No thx.

    Orange Blossom Honey Water (Mel, Aqua) , Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Olea europaea) , Stearic Acid , Cold Pressed Evening Primrose Oil (Oenothera biennis) , Cold Pressed Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima) , Glycerine , Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera) , Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum) , Cold Pressed Organic Wheatgerm Oil (Triticum vulgare) , Fresh Organic Orange Juice (Citrus Aurantium dulcis) , Cold Pressed Organic Grapeseed Oil (Vitis vinifera) , Fresh Pineapple Juice (Ananas comosus) , Orange Flower Absolute (Citrus Dulcis) , Neroli Oil (Citrus amara) , Myrrh Resinoid (Commiphora myrrha) , Triethanolamine , Cetearyl Alcohol , *Geraniol , *Farnesol , *Limonene , *Linalool , Hydroxycitronellol , Fragrance , Methylparaben , Propylparaben

      • OK FAIR. I can respect that.

        In response in general, I have broken down and sacrificed part of my wine budget once to buy la mer’s gel formulation. It was what I lusted after…but after using an entire jar of it over about two months, I find that both Biotherm’s aquasource moisturizer (gel based) and Amore Pacific’s regular gel based moisturizer do just as good a job. So lust no more! That stupid $90 moisturizer would probably make you break out after a week of using it, and you’ll be back to an old standard.

      If you can mix up something at home, do it, and I’ll run it! That would be cool!
