Bad Vibes


Can we stop the madness? The proliferation of vibrating beauty products has gotten a little out of hand, and it is bordering on perversion. First the Spinbrush, a rotating mascara wand. Then the vibrating mascara. Next, the vibrating lash conditioner; because if a formula doesn't work in the first place, by all means add batteries to it.

But this one really takes the cake.

Oscillating foundation-? Really, L'ancome-?

The ads claim that the motion breaks down the "nourishing" qualities of the microbeads. First of all, it's minerals and you know how I feel about those. Not a fan.

I am all for a great massage during a facial, but this is absurd. It reminds me of the exercise device you strap around your waist and it vibrates the inches away. This is the kind of thing that makes me stabby; cosmetics execs thinking they can dupe consumers into buying something this ridiculous.

Just say no to this trend, and if you succumb, please don't tell me about it.
