    All right, so I’m using 3 new products and I can’t isolate which one it is, but I have this mole right under my eyebrow that showed up when I was about 35. It has some scientific name, but it’s basically a flat, tan colored age or sun damage spot about the size of a pencil eraser, with a raised texture. I should have gotten it lasered off or something and I probably still will… but! In the past few weeks it’s like actually coming off and getting really light. There’s one more small raised piece which I think is going to flake off any time, and what’s left is very flat, very light, and barely noticeable. So if it’s working on that, imagine what it does for normal dark spots and hyper pigmentation.

    I recommend everyone get this one just because it’s awesome and fun and will totally exfoliate your face better than anything (and probably remove ingrained pollution etc):

    Then there’s this, which I definitely think is helping too:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005IXGA6C/ref=mp_s_a_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1482944887&sr=8-3&keywords=la+roche+posay+pigment

    And finally Rodan + Fields Intensive Brightening Toner from the Reverse line.

    I used to use la mer and loved it …until I saw they used mineral oil.
    I have pretty bad winter dry skin. Now I cook with coconut oil and put it in my coffee and my skin stays soft. I also make sure I am getting the right nutrients. I take extra iodine ,selenium, magnesium, d3, etc. They make a big difference. My skin is no longer flaky and cracking. Nurish from the inside out. No creams will really help…most of them just sit on your skin.

    Oh, Instyler makes a version of the damn brush that might work better for shorter hair because it’s not as wide. Based on the shape, I think it would be better for making curves at the ends too. It still does not *dry* your hair though.

    Here’s the whole Buzzfeed list – it’s about halfway down.

    Thanks for the recommendation, Kate! And congrats on your substitute for plastic surgery — the little growth under your brow is almost certainly an actinic keratosis. They are never ever dangerous, and are raised & with a slightly coarse texture like you describe. I have successfully removed them by dabbing them with a Q-tip dipped in 35% hydrogen peroxide (not the drugstore 3%) on several successive days, but they look bad for about a week until they drop off. Your “procedure” sounds a lot better!

    Yup, that’s what it is! Thanks for the peroxide tip for future.
