Algenist’s newest cream is DIVINE!

algenist1

Sometimes I think I’m going to have to invent a new adjective, because I use so many of them on a daily basis. I completely forgot about divine! I’m going to have to use it more often!

If you think we just LOVE everything we try, let me assure you WE DO NOT. We are sent so much stuff every month to test out – and very rarely will we talk about a product we don’t love. If a company emails me back looking for a review, I’ll say “I didn’t like it – you want me telling people that?” I don’t review products I don’t like. The reason I don’t is for one reason and one reason alone…. it didn’t work FOR ME. That doesn’t mean it won’t work for you – it just didn’t work for me. We keep it honest, we keep it real…. and I think that’s what everyone wants, right?

Anyhoo, back to this product here. I’ve been using this lotion since the beginning of January, and I’m absolutely in love with it. My skin is aging (at warp speed, I swear) and so all the help I can give it, I’ll take! This product has really helped my skin tone up and firm up, and makes it look more smooth.

Algenist’s Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream

Genius is a scientifically advanced formulation designed to address the signs of aging skin. Youthful suppleness and radiance is restored, skin density is increased, facial contours become more defined and deep wrinkles are visibly minimized leaving skin firmer, softer and smoother. Alguronic Acid is combined with the breakthrough Microalgae Oil to create a powerful and highly active formula which addresses the accelerated signs of aging caused by hormonal changes, environmental stress and the natural aging process.

The actives harnessed in Genius are delivered in a luxurious, emollient formula that instantly absorbs into the skin, softening and smoothing upon contact. Results are apparent in just 10 days, and even more visible after 28 days of usage.

Seriously, GET THIS. I adore it!

Key Benefits

  • Skin appears nourished and radiance boosted
  • Skin resiliency and elasticity appear restored
  • Visibly minimizes fine lines and deep wrinkles

Rosie O’Donnell reveals she had weight loss surgery after suffering a heart attack

gty_rosie_o_donnell_2_jt_111009_wblog

Rosie O’Donnell has just revealed that she underwent weight loss surgery last year after suffering a heart attack.

The comedian, 51, made the announcement at an American Heart Association event on Friday. Fox 2 news reporter Roop Raj tweeted her announcement, and then Rosie retweeted it.

The mother-of-five suffered a heart attack in August of 2012, in which 99 percent of her LAD artery was blocked; she wrote that her particular type of heart attack has been nicknamed the “Widow Maker” because it is very often lethal, and that she was lucky to have survived it. She later told People that the episode taught her “to take care” of herself and prompted her to lose weight.

Good for her for getting help! How scary!

Here it is! The real 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover!

Swimsuit: 2014 Issue: Cook Islands Group - Lily Aldridge, Nina Agdal, Chrissy Teigen Beach/Rarotonga, Cook Islands, New Zealand

Last night on the Jimmy Kimmel show, he unveiled the real 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover (apparently the Barbie cover was just for fun?). Three barely-covered models graced the cover, Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen.

Apparently Sports Illustrated doesn’t tell anyone who landed the cover, even the models. We all find out together at the same time. According to People, Chrissy and Lily both talked about their surprise at making the cover.

What was your first reaction when you heard you were on the cover?
Chrissy: I started crying. But it was a weird shaking, trembling because … I didn’t believe it. Maybe because it’s airing on Kimmel and he likes to prank people. I was like, ‘This is the meanest prank of all time.’
Lily: I was so excited when I got the call to do Sports Illustrated, and then …. I was shooting in the Cook Islands with these incredible girls. I felt so lucky that I got the best shoot … it was the perfect introduction to Sports Illustrated. And then to get the cover! It’s so crazy and such an honor.

Are you excited about sharing the cover? Does it make it more special?
Chrissy: It does feel extra special. I’m just really excited to get to run around with them for the next month or whatever. People say that and don’t mean it but I really love them … We’re literally tied together forever because of this. I hope you know that.
Lily: You’re stuck with me.

Who did you call first and how did they react?
Lily: We both called our husbands.
Chrissy: Before I left, John [Legend] said,’‘Don’t trick me. Don’t say, Babe, I didn’t get it and [then say] I got it! Just be happy and just say it!’ So I just called him, and through tears, [said] ‘I got it.’ And that was it.
Lily: My husband [rocker Caleb Followill] is very proud. He’s very excited. I don’t think there is a man in the world that wouldn’t be super-stoked their wife ends up as the Sports Illustrated cover model.

You can pick up your issue next week. Apparently there’s an interesting zero-gravity shot at Kate Upton’s boobs.
