We’re Not Gone! (We’re Just Not Here Right Now)

Psssst. You there? If you’re here, you’ve no doubt noticed that No More Dirty Looks has gone dark lately. That’s due to a number of factors that aren’t as dire or desperate as they may seem when you realize the last time any of us posted was, well, two plus months ago. The fact is, everyone involved in this project has been busy doing a lot of soul searching—not to mention having jobs—and in the meantime, this baby has fallen by the wayside. For now. To those of you who have written to us to ask if NMDL is dead […]

More To Love From KYPRIS

KYPRIS is one of those special brands – the sort that keeps me wondering what will come next. The new offerings, launched this summer, quickly made their way into my daily routine. I’ve gone minimalist recently, rarely wearing makeup and not buying many new products…  …but the new KYPRIS Cleanser and “Pot of Shade” are not to be resisted.

Ingredient Spotlight: Watermelon Seed Oil

Have you been enjoying watermelon as much as I have this summer? If you need a little inspiration, this post gives you every reason to eat more watermelon (lycopene, potassium and more!). The benefits of watermelon don’t stop there. Cold-pressed watermelon seed oil is one of the best ingredients you can add to your summer routine, and it’s prominently featured in some of my favorite skincare products. The watermelon seed oil used in cosmetics doesn’t actually come from the common summer fruit we all know and love. It comes from its biological ancestor—the wild watermelons found in the Kalahari Desert of Africa—and […]
