  • The secret to really soft and smooth hands, even when you're washing them thirty times a day: sugar scrubs. God bless Tree Hut.

    Once I wash off the scrub, I also slather my hands in a random mask I picked up from Ulta a few months back. The scent was way too strong for my face, but it feels heavenly on my hands~

    i love tree hut's scrubs <33 i used to have a thingy of it awhile ago and i used it all up.
    aloe vera helps too!! that's what i've moved on to, and a little goes a long way so i only have to use it every other night
    Ah, I got a sugar scrub a few days ago and my legs are loving it~ It smells like blueberry lemon tarts, too, and it's heavenly! I could bathe in the stuff, honestly.
    Hm... jojoba milk isn't milk at all, it's just emulsified jojoba oil. I sat here drafting up an argument for why jojoba milk couldn't be made the same way as almond milk, since jojoba is a nut, but apparently it's NOT a nut, it's just CALLED a nut but is actually a shrub or something? Jojoba oil is extracted from its seed, but is the seed classified as a nut, or just a very large seed, like a plum pit or something? Could you soak a bunch of jojoba seeds overnight, blend 'em, strain 'em, mix in some vanilla, and make jojoba milk that way? Would it taste good? The taste is the main reason peanut milk hasn't really become a thing, in spite of the popularity of peanuts and peanut-based products... of course, there's also the fact that peanuts aren't nuts either...

    Peanuts and jojoba seeds would get along. They're both non-nuts given a false moniker. Also apparently peanut oil is a decent substitute for mineral oil in skincare - that is to say, neither are particularly good, but they'll work in a pinch and probably won't kill you. Which is convenient, because peanut oil always comes in these gigantic tubs, so if all other options are exhausted, that's always an option.

    I want some roasted peanuts now. But it's been mandated that all business close by 8:30, including the Almighty Walmart, so I'll have to wait until morning. I wonder if salted, roasted jojoba seeds would taste good too...

    In conclusion, jojoba is just one big lie. They're called a nut but they're not a nut, jojoba milk isn't milk at all, it's spelled "JOE-joe-bah" but is pronounced "ho-HO-bah" - what the fuck are you, jojoba?

    In its defense it’s native to Mexico (according to Wikipedia anyway) so the name might be Spanish. Idk about the rest of it though XP

    ...let the records show that I was incredibly drunk when I wrote this. Forgive me.

    The Bili homepage is completely monochrome (like, even my avatar is black and white), and it seems like the only videos they're promoting videos discussing the pandemic. It's eerie.

    At the very least, it's normal once you click on your own profile and go through videos and stuff, but it's still depressing.

    So another reminder: COVID is serious and you should take it seriously.
    !!! LOOK AT THIS!! I found this VSQ I made when I first got Oliver, and I've spent the past twenty minutes or so polishing it a bit.

    Nah, it's "Grande valse villageoise" from Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty. Somebody's just added words to it. (Was it you?)

    @parallax_fifths nope, it's the Disney version! Disney added lyrics to it in their movie version of it. Aurora sings it while imagining meeting her prince.

    Ugh. Disney. Evil, evil Disney. Did they at least give Tchaikovsky credit? (Don't answer that. It's Disney. Of course they didn't.)
    Be still my heart, LRP DOES have a hydrating mist! So now I'm stuck between that one and the Milky Hydrating Tonic.

    Now to find something discreet to put it into, because my mother will probably kick me out if I bring home another skincare product.
    Hm... I'm on the lookout for a hydrating mist to make my hyaluronic acid serum more fun to use. I went on one of my FB groups asking for suggestions that I could get locally (I adore our UPS lady and don't wanna add to her burden by ordering online), but everyone's suggesting stuff I can only get online anyway, SO time for some independent research!

    Cleen's Coconut Hibiscus Mist looks nice, but it's got witch hazel, which shouldn't be used on one's whole face (otherwise I'd just use my Thayers, which smells nice but is far more astringent than hydrating). I'm leaning towards Pixi's Hydrating Milky Mist ('cause I'm a slut for oats in skincare), but I like the ingredients of their Milky Tonic more, but since it's a toner and not a mist, would putting it in a spray bottle and using it as a mist count as double-toning, and what would the consequences of that be? Logically I know there WOULDN'T be consequences, but I still get paranoid, because I'm a stickler for applying skincare products in the correct order...

    I could always look into Shea Moisture's mists, I'm sure they've got some, but I don't trust them after that whole Fermented Ass Cleanser incident. Maybe La Roche-Posay's got some? I dunno, I'm still pretty new to their products, since there's only one place in town you can get them... I'd have more options if Ulta wasn't shut down and I wasn't boycotting Sephora.

    Then again, with what they pulled, maybe I could justify... no, even stepping foot into their store benefits them. I'll stick to things I can find in Target and Walmart.
    After a long, arduous struggle, I (kinda) got Boomco working! I'm not sure if I have the patience for her just now though...

    Pure hyaluronic acid smells so bad... like, not neem oil-bad by any means, but it’s certainly not pleasant.

    Skin, you’d better be grateful for this, you thirsty-ass bitch.
    Now that I've got my hands on Budget Japanese Haiyi Boomco's Japanese bank, I'm gonna get her up and singin'! Since she's VCV, I'm rendering her initially with Tei, because their vocals are pretty similar stylistically.

    Actually, I really like Boomco so far! She needs some TLC to really sound good, but it's worth it!!
    Ugh... This copy of ACT1 has already been activated AND registered, and the buyer is refusing contact with the proxy I bought them through. Dammit. I know I just wanted their box, but I was still kinda hoping I'd get a functional product.
    Niang/Boomco is now my child and I ship her with Haiyi. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

    Words of wisdom my friend.
    It's still another twelve hours until it's the First in Japan... hurry up! The longer this cover sits in my computer, the more changes I keep making to it!
    TFW you downloaded a Vocaloid song off of iTunes ten years ago, and then one night you hear it again for the first time since you were fifteen, and you get a wild hair and go looking for an off-vocal, not really expecting to find anything... but there IS an official off-vocal, and it sounds amazing?

    Yeah, that's a fantastic feeling.
    Haiyi's VP has an UTAU that's in both Chinese and Japanese! And she's still available for download! This is amazing~
