Cheap 'n easy foot scrub

 I haven't tried this yet, but am definitely going to give it a shot next time I'm at the beach.

"The next time you decide to spend the day at the beach, take advantage of the "on location foot treatment."  Brazilians, particularly, are known for scrubbing their entire bodies, particularly the feet, deep into the sand while they relax on the beach."

Beach Sand Foot Scrub

-2 Tablespoons Canola oil
-2 Tablespoons dry beach sand
-3-5 drops rosemary oil
When going to the beach, take a small vial of ingredients with you:  2 tablespoons of canola oil (or use your suntan oil!), and, a small vial of rosemary oil -- or premix and take one vial.
Once at the beach, use an empty container (a soda cup is fine) to mix the ingredients together. Mix into a paste.  Massage sand scrub onto feet (and elbows), concentrating especially on problem areas.  Rinse off in the foamy waves, pat dry with your beach towel.

Hullo! And concealer.

I was standing in the shower this morning wondering why I hadn't seen any posts from this community (no joke), and it turns out I forgot to friend it. Whoops.

I'm Alissa, 22, "single" (not married, but have a serious Man in my life), a business analyst (read: tech person) at an investment bank, and I live in New York City.

I have recently become enamored of Clean & Clear cream cleanser. Where have you been all my life? ::hearts:: All tingly and nice.

Can anyone recommend a good concealer? I'm running to the end of mine and might be interested in switching. Right now I use Benefit Lyin' Eyes, which works fairly well. I have bad circles around/under my eyes, though. I have very fair skin.

Also, my poor eyes are often red-rimmed (I really do get enough sleep!). Any thoughts or suggestions for that?
