Product Review: Meet Red Apple Lipstick, My New Love

I’m so excited about this brand I hardly know where to start.  I’ve got lip issues, and wrote about my travails and subsequent salvation here.  I still love those brands, but the combination of performance, balmy texture, gorgeous colors, smash-bang website, and super deals has me hooked on Red Apple.  They hit all my important points, in terms of product performance as well as being vegan and gluten free.  The Red Apple website outdoes most cosmetics companies.  It gives detailed, accurate verbal descriptions of the colors, mentions which skin tones can wear a shade best, includes customer reviews, and – […]

Let’s say it’s a Monday menu for those who can go for a walk in the forest instead of running a marathon down some office corridors… […]

Product Review: The May Lindstrom Line (And Why I Now Wash My Face With Dirt) [UPDATED]

Here’s the rub with natural face care lines: They can feel a bit samesame after a while. A non-foaming cleanser, an amazing oil, and maybe a lovely hydrosal toner or spray… Don’t get me wrong, we love this formula—less is more, and it’s precisely this simple well-executed combination of pure ingredients that made us first fall for the likes of Kahina, Stark, and Evan Healy. But once you have your faves, it’s hard to justify trying 20 other brands that offer something similar. That’s why this May Lindstrom line jumped out at me on first use. My intro to the […]

The Whys and Hows of Dry Brushing (At Last!)

Many a Morning Routine has mentioned it, and several readers have been left wondering: “What is this dry brushing thing all about?” So here goes. There are many sources of information on dry brushing out there, like Spirit Beauty Lounge’s blog, Indigo+Canary, and the one that got me started – Evan Healy’s blog.  I’ve seen many claims about the benefits of dry brushing, from exfoliation to detox to reduction of cellulite.  There are also some “official” ways it ought to be done, including techniques, how long to brush, etc.  My aim here is to cover my personal reasons for doing […]

My MM: Maddie’s Meatless Monday Menu

Holy moly Maddie, this is one heck of a clean meatless menu. We’re curious to know how the no-gluten-or-sugar eating (and no caffeine) is feeling? We love a lot about the Body Ecology Diet—but have a hard time sticking to something so restrictive. For those who have followed similar plans, was this level of disciplined eating sustainable longterm? In other news, we are low on meatless menus! If you want this sometimes-controversial series to continue, please email yours to nomoredirtylooks@gmail.com with “My MM” in the subject. Name: Maddie Home: Brooklyn, NY Dietary Leanings: Right now, I am (trying to be) […]
