Old-School Beauty Tricks

This is my husband's Windex cureall:

About $8.29 at Walgreen's.

I'm embarrassed to tell you how many times this past week he told me to "put Bag Balm on it." He even put it on Baby Herald to my great consternation, then went to Grandma for approval. Because Grandma is a farmer's daughter, she is an old school Bag Balm user who actually used it on cow udders, not red baby skin. Unfortunately, it did seem to cure many ailments, but I'm still not promoting it for toddler use.

$2.08 on sale at CVS. Seriously.

He also can't be found anywhere without his Murray's hair pomade. I dip into it on occasion, and it works great if used sparingly. I use it now before flat-ironing because my hair's so damaged. I also like the Super Light version for daily usage.

Walgreen's 350 Fifth Avenue at 33rd Street
CVS 320 Fifth Avenue at 32nd Street

I've heard wonderful things about Bag Balm ... but that giant, goopy open tin just makes me squeamish!

You're preaching to the choir. Dipping my finger in it kind of grosses me out!
