Make Her Up is scared to introduce… Vajazzling!

This is probably – hands down – the scariest thing I’ve run across in the two years I’ve been writing for MHU. This little gem landed in my inbox today, and it was too disturbing to keep to myself. If I put these pictures on my fridge – I may never eat again!

I can’t believe this woman posed for these pictures! How gross!!! (Course, I also think it’s gross when people pose for acne pictures… ew)

Bryce Gruber of The Luxury Spot, www.theluxuryspot.com a widely read online lifestyle site, became the first member of the media to experience the latest in personal grooming, Vajazzling.

She was sent by Spa Week Daily, www.spaweekdaily.com, to cover one of the treatments that’ll be offered during Spa Week Spring 2010, April 12-18, when spa treatments are just $50 a piece at participating spas across the country. Gruber headed to Completely Bare on Bond Street (www.completelybare.com) to try their newest service, Vajazzling, which is the bedazzling of the area which gets waxed when getting a bikini wax (or more) by adding crystals and beads to the nether regions.

A play on bedazzling and a part of the female body, Vajazzling is the adornment of crystals and beads to the bikini area after waxing. According to the Completely Bare website, “Accessorizing your privates is the hottest rage. From crystal flowers to customized favorites, you too can now decorate your own jewels. Whether it’s a special occasion or you just want to sparkle everywhere, you can choose from an assortment of real Swarovski crystal designs so you can shimmer and shine.”

Gruber stated:

“I’m here to cover up my C section scar. I’m here to give the women of America options.”

Am I the only one grossed out by this?

My Review: Nature’s Gate Deoderant

ngo-lavendar-deodorant_300×330.jpg

I was listening to Howard Stern last week, and he was raving about this new deodorant he had tried, from Nature’s Gate. Howard is all about natural, organic products, and swore that this was his favorite deodorant.  I contacted the company and asked them to send me some product, which I was so excited to try out! I hate the thought of using deodorants that are filled with aluminum, so I was excited to try this aluminum-free product! 

I love the scent, it was strong – and smelled great. It has an earthy-fresh smell, and I loved that! It went on well, and dried nicely.  My only complaint, is that it definitely doesn’t last nearly as long as the deodorants I’ve tried in the past. This product is only really good for 2-4 hours.  Which for me – doesn’t cut it. I don’t want to have to reapply deodorant throughout the day.  So I probably wouldn’t use this product again.  I was definitely not convinced.

Available in roll-on and stick formulations, Nature’s Gate deodorants are named after the four seasons with great matching scents! Each deodorant contains a unique and powerful odor-blocker Deoderm® and a combination of odor-preventing natural extracts. Phthalate free. Contain no animal derived ingredients and never tested on animals.

Nature’s Gate Certified Organic essences are fresh from the field, locally grown in California on land dedicated to growing Nature’s Gate botanical essences. At the family owned Organic farm, each plant receives individual care, ensuring the highest purity and quality. The farm’s water source is derived from the winter rains and snow pack of the Sierra Nevadas.

-Paraben Free

-No Propylene Glycol

-No Aluminum

-With Baking Soda to help neutralize odor
