The infomercial world has experienced a void since the untimely passing of Billy Mays, so now we have this guy with another fantastic product called Aspray. Lucky us. The A stands for ass, apparently, because one of its many merits is its ability to destroy butt odor. "I got odors in special places," reads an anonymous testimonial. Don't we all. Despite doing some sleuthing, I couldn't find out what's in the "100% natural, chemical-free, fragrance-free" formula. Not sure I want to find out.

Botox on land is one thing, but Botox on a floating vessel? I'm not so sure about that. The Celebrity Life program debuts this week on the fleet's latest ship, Celebrity Equinox, and will roll out to the rest of the fleet in November. Would you partake in some on-board beautifying, or is this a voyage you'd prefer to skip?
This morning, an email deal popped up in my inbox. Bliss spas (save for those in New York and Hoboken) are offering a free Brazilian bikini wax with the purchase of a Triple Oxygen Treatment facial. (Details here.) The bargain hunter in me squealed and thought, "Well, it has been almost a year (!) since I've had a facial, and when you factor in the $70 that I'd save on the waxing, it's not a bad deal . . ." In general, do special deals and bonuses make you more likely to whip out your wallet?

Every day we're confronted with images of celebrities who've had their teeth capped, veneered, zoom whitened, Invisaligned, and any number of other surgical and chemical processes — smiles that no real person has and that run into the thousands of dollars to create. Which is why it's refreshing when a little bit of naturalness peeps through. There's no case where this is more true than with gap teeth, which, prior to our symmetry and straightness-obsessed age, were a sign of seductive prowess (anybody remember the Wife of Bath in the Canterbury Tales? In Merry Olde England, gap teeth were quite the hot thing— kinda like Marilyn Monroe and Cindy Crawford's moles). And despite the prevailing culture, the ladies I've put together still look sexy as hell, no dentist required. So c'mon, get gappy and check these famous spaces out.
Revlon's new liquid lipstick has a slick ad campaign featuring the beautiful Jennifer Connelly and a tagline promising that the product "has it all." But is there really such a thing as truth in advertising? Reader Jenzene says not so much. I'll let her take it from here:
"It doesn't give you glossy lips like Jennifer Connelly has in the ads. Nope, it dries matte. It's also very drying! There's no glossy layer, there's no moisture at all. IT'S LIKE A LIP STAIN, but more pigmented than a typical lip stain (because it's supposed to be like a lipstick). The color dries on my lips, and you can still see the dry skin and lines on my lips. No good."

Unisex fragrances have come a long way from their CK One days. While nothing got between me and my Calvin in middle school, some of today's gorgeously complex scents are as fascinating as they are sexy. I've put together a few of the most intriguing ones, so go out and see what the new unisex smells like for yourself.
And there are plenty of other unusual facts. For instance, do you know which star apparently refrigerates her wigs to keep them looking nice and fresh, or who has had her ears pierced and repierced multiple times? You're about to find out.Take the Quiz
And yes, while Dr. Day bounced off the facts and myths about the wrinkle-reducing drug during her presentation, she also provided tips on skin care that struck a chord with me. "Your skin reflects your overall inner health," she said. While her statement might seem obvious, even I, lover of all things skin care, need to be reminded of this every now and then. Check out her five tips for better skin and a healthier outlook by reading more.
Why am I in pain? I'll tell you. I've been using Latisse for a while now, and though I haven't seen results just yet, I do know one thing for sure — the brushes that come with the product are terrible. For the dish on one of the worst things about Latisse, just keep reading.
