Dude and Dude Help With Quilly’s Stats

“So we’re supposed to talk about the Quillster, dude?”

“Yeah, dude.”

“So she’ll get more readers?”

“That’s the idea.”

“So what’s she been doin’ lately?”

Sellin’ stuff, dude. Where’ve you been?”

“Like, what?”

“Like, cosmetics.”

“They have ticks in space?!?

“Of course they do, dude. They bite space cadets. Which answers that question.”

“What’s this stuff good for?”

“To make you beautiful, dude. Well, OK, maybe not you. Take mascara, for instance.”

“Oh yeah, that’s right. It’s almost Labor Day. The store’s ‘ve gotta get that stuff out there. Along with the Christmas stuff.”


“I understand the Dick Cheney is still a top seller.”

What’re you talkin’ about??

Scary masks, dude. Isn’t that what you said?

“Not scary masks, dude! Mascara!

Exactly! Listen, dude, does this ‘cosmetics‘ stuff include perfume?

“Aha. Light dawns on Marblehead.”

“And deodorant?

“Get a case, dude.”

“After you, dude. But doesn’t this mean Quilly’s gonna have to be careful?


“When she takes down what people want to buy and stuff. You know how she sometimes gets all discombobulated when she’s tryin’ to do too many things at once. Somebody tries to get a whole bunch of scented stuff, along with this and that and somethin’ else too, and in tryin’ to get it all down the Q gets flummoxed and says ‘Thank you for your odor‘, well, she’s goin’ to lose customers, that’s all I’m sayin’.”

“Riiight, dude. And this is supposed to help with Quilly’s stats how?

“She didn’t say which direction, dude.”

Obagi Prescription Strength Skincare

Do you have problem adult skin?  I do.  Every winter my skin gets hyper dry and I slather on moisturizer.  I haven’t tried Obagi, but I am considering it.  Here is what the company has to say for itself:

Obagi has introduced multiple product lines designed to treat the most frequent adult skin conditions including sun damage, hyper pigmentation, acne, and roseacea—redness and flushing of the skin. The Obagi lines are used as a system, each group of products designed specifically for skin types from dry to oily, working together to dramatically improve skin health and appearance. In addition to the Obagi Nu-Derm System, there are:

  • The Obagi-C Rxâ„¢ system
  • The Condition & Enhanceâ„¢ System
  • The ELASTIdermâ„¢
  • The CLENZIderm M.D. Acne Therapeutic Systemsâ„¢
  • Rosaclear System

The ELASTIdermâ„¢ System sounds promising.  I have noticed that the extra dryness of my skin seems to be accentuating the natural lines and curves of my face — which is my emotionally acceptable way of admitting I have wrinkles!  I learned to like my platinum gray hair, but I don’t think I will ever grow found of the extra face creases.  Plus, I scabbed up my face pretty badly when I was a kid and spent years thrilled that I never scarred, but apparently I did, and my new “looser” skin is making those scars much more evident.

Caviar Power by Gerhard Klapp

Gerhard Klapp is an anti-aging, skin care specialist committed to the research and development of beauty products to help slow or stop the signs of aging. For over 30 years Klapp Skin Care has been making important innovations in the beauty industry. Klapp’s success in creating and promoting products that work have earned him world renown.

Caviar Power is one of the most successful Klapp Collections. Klapp has created an excitingly effective, collagen and moisture rich, line of anti-aging products with DNA extracted from caviar. The caviar contains vitamins, phospholipids and proteins which, along with natural bio-peptides, combine to stimulate cell production and metabolism which help rejuvenate elasticity and suppleness, which in turn diminishes wrinkles and fine lines, giving skin a younger, healthy glow.

Klapp Caviar Power Serum was designed especially for mature skin to provide the extra boost necessary to keep one’s skin looking fresh and supple. The serum should be used in conjunction with the other Caviar Power products. Klapp Caviar Power Eye Care was designed to erase crows feet and other fine lines around the eye area.

The Klapp Caviar Power Anti-Aging Gift Set is the perfect accessory to every outfit in your closet. Nothing looks better than healthy, glowing skin. The set includes the Caviar Power Serum, Caviar Power Cleanser and either the Caviar Power Day Cream or the Caviar Power Night Cream, your choice. At first glance Klapp Caviar Power products may seem expensive, but what would you give to have young, glowing, supple skin again? In comparison to similar products, the value of Klapp Caviar Power shows through in both the competitive prices and unmistakable results.

I Need Quality Skin Care Products

I have left both my youth and the humidity of Hawaii behind. These days my skin feels one size to small. Not only that. I have spots around my eyes that pretty much look and feel like alligator skin. I need some decent skin care products. Does anybody have anything in mind?

I have been looking at cosmeceuticals, or cosmetics with active pharmaceutical ingredients.  One  cosmeceutical company that caught my eye was Dermajuv because they have done laboratory studies to gauge the success of their products, and because they offer a 30 day money back guarantee.  Try the product for 30 days and if it doesn’t work, return it for a refund.

I started looking at cosmeceuticals with a great deal of skepticism.  Medical cosmetics.  Was that just a fancy claim, or is there some weight behind the term?  According to Wikipedia, the name has validity and is a marketing ploy — it is up to the consumer to judge the companies that lay claim to the word.

Since Dermajuv offers a 30 day money back guarantee, I know they believe in their products.  Moreover, Dermajuv is willing to describe and explain their product ingredients in detail.  In fact, they have dedicated an entire section of their website solely for the purpose of showcasing their cosmeceuticals.  You can even view PDFs of the clinical study results.

From the Dermajuv website:

Is Matrixyl (palmitoyl pentapeptide-3) an effective anti wrinkle product?
Yes. In clinical studies, Matrixyl was shown to:
increase overall collagen synthesis by up to 117%
increase collagen IV synthesis by up to 327%
increase hyaluronic acid synthesis by up to 267%
Deep wrinkles were reduced by half. Smaller wrinkles and fine lines sometimes faded completely away. And what’s even better, every participant in the study showed noticeable improvement within two weeks. The result was fewer wrinkles and younger-looking skin.
