  • Best Actor and Best Picture Winner (The King¹s Speech) Colin Firth¹s Oscars Grooming: Kyoku for Men

    Georgie Eisdell, who groomed Colin Firth for the red carpet using Kyoku for Men

    “When I’m grooming someone for the red carpet, I never have a lot of time, so my main goals are to plump, hydrate and increase blood circulation in the skin to allow a natural glow shine through. Massaging products into the skin really thoroughly and using a pressing motion for application are both great ways to increase blood circulation and let color to rise to the surface. 

    To prep Colin Firth for the Oscars, I started with Kyoku for Men Razor Repair Balm, which contains witch hazel and aloe vera, to combat post-shave redness and calm his skin; it’s a great anti-inflammatory product, and I always keep it in my kit for emergencies!

    Then, facialist Natalie Eleni applied the Kyoku for Men Eye Fuel to Colin’s Eyes using lymphatic drainage movements (using your ring finger, gently pat around the orbital bone in an outward motion towards the ear), which are great for re-energizing and de-puffing tired eyes.

    Next, I applied the Oil Control Lotion down the T zone to absorb any excess oil and prevent Colin from looking greasy. It was very important to lightly matify his skin in specific areas to ensure that he stayed shine-free all night long. I then used Kyoku for Men Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 to refresh his skin and keep it looking healthy and rested.”

    About RIO

    From the makers of the hit ICE AGE series, RIO is a comedy-adventure, in 3D, about taking a walk on the wild side.  Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota.  Blu and Linda think he’s the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu’s female counterpart.  Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers.  With the help of street smart Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu escapes.  Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.

  • Rep On Jason Biggs' Monkey Business: "Not Everything On The Internet Is True"

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Contrary to an online report, Jason Biggs has not been attacked by a Gibraltar ape while on vacation on the island, his rep told Access  Hollywood.

    “Jason’s in LA, had a meeting yesterday with his agents,” the rep told Access. “Not everything on the Internet is true.”

    Earlier on Thursday, the UK’s Telegraph reported that the star had gone sightseeing in Gibraltar, only to find himself face-to-face with a Barbary macaque that “tried to bite his face off.” There are reportedly some 200 “Barbary apes” in Gibraltar – a species native to North Africa and brought to the British territory by soldiers in the 18th century.


    The erroneous report comes at the same time as the 10th anniversary of Biggs’ breakthrough role, as a sex-challenged teenager who had a different close encounter – with the title desert — in the comedy “American Pie.”
