    One of the best ways to treat yourself is through some self-care. And if you can feel like a celebrity in the process, that's even better. Gwyneth Paltrow has invested in the wellness company WTHN, which sells rose quartz eye masks and skincare tools, including the extremely popular face cupping kit.

    She's not the only celeb who's into this treatment though. January Jones used the cupping kit in an Instagram Story.

    WTHN's face cupping kit is only $50. Nab yours before it sells out...again.

    WTHN Face Cupping Kit
    WTHN recommends face cupping two to three times a week, but if you want to ease into it, once a week can make a major difference.

    What's the fuss all about? WTHN describes the technique as "nature's facelift, but better."

    Aside from tightening facial muscles, cupping can increase collagen and elastin, promote circulation, minimize wrinkles and it can help reduce aches and pains from muscle tension.

    January isn't the only one raving about WTHN's face cupping kit. One reviewer praised the product for helping with "TMJ and tight jaw muscles," gushing that it's "the best quality I could have imagined!" Another customer said it is "easy to use and the results are incredible." No wonder it sold out four times already.

    I'm not sure why Gwyneth news is so fascinating here...

    ...hold the phone. Quinoa whiskey?

    The actress, who is well known for her wellness and lifestyle brand Goop, concocted a lot of quinoa whiskey cocktails to help her get through the lockdown, according to The Mirror.

    “I was drinking seven nights a week and making pasta and eating bread. I went totally off the rails,” Paltrow, 48, said, according to the article.

    “I mean, who drinks multiple drinks seven nights a week? Like that’s not healthy. I love whiskey and I make this fantastic drink called the Buster Paltrow, which I named after my grandfather who loved whiskey sours,” the actress reportedly continued.

    “And it’s this great quinoa whiskey from this distillery in Tennessee with maple syrup and lemon juice. It’s just heaven. I would have two of those every night of quarantine.”

    Paltrow said she did not get “like, black-out” drunk, but was hankering for cigarettes during her nightly imbibing.

    “I miss it,” she said of her former smoking habit, according to the British tabloid.

    I give Gwyneth a lot of flack...

    ...but it's because I'm insanely jealous of the empire she has built.

    And this superbowl ad is hysterical. Good on Gwyneth!

    The Diapér

    Gwyneth Paltrow Pretends to Sell $120 Disposable Diapers to Make a Statement
    The Goop founder used her platform to raise awareness about the taxing of essential items.
    BY EMILY KIRKPATRICK
    MAY 12, 2022


    Gwyneth Paltrow satirized her own company's penchant for promoting slightly absurd luxury goods in order to make a serious statement about the taxing of essential items.

    On Wednesday, Goop posted a very fancy-looking, branded diaper to its Instagram account. The joke product, called “The Diapér,” is a bougie disposable nappy that the brand said it would be launching on Friday and that would retail at $120 for a pack of twelve. The post was captioned, “Meet The Diapér. Our new disposable diaper lined with virgin alpaca wool and fastened with amber gemstones, known for their ancient emotional-cleansing properties.” It also touted that the human waste receptacle would be “infused with a scent of jasmine and bergamot for a revitalized baby.”

    Most fans quickly realized that the ad must be a joke as the product seemed a little too outlandish even by Goop's standards. But given that this it the same company that once sold products such as “NASA spacesuit stickers,” “psychic vampire repellent spray,” and yoni eggs that earned them a $145,000 government fine, others weren't quite so sure. But ultimately, the diaper did turn out to be a fake as the PR company behind the Diapér revealed in a press release to Vice's Motherboard that it was a stunt orchestrated between Goop and Baby2Baby, a nonprofit that collects diapers and other essential items to distribute to families in need nationwide.

    The statement read, “Tomorrow, Goop CEO Gwyneth Paltrow will reveal on Instagram that ‘The Diapér’ is designed to expose the ridiculousness of taxing diapers like a luxury product.” Following the shock on social media, Paltrow released her own video on Instagram on Wednesday evening, explaining, “Goop launched a luxury disposable diaper at $120 for a pack of 12 and there was a lot of outrage. Good. It was designed to **** us off. Because if treating diapers like a luxury makes you mad, so should taxing them like a luxury.”

    The actress continued, “Despite the absolute necessity of diapers, in 33 states they aren’t treated like an essential item. They're taxed like a luxury good. This leaves one in three families struggling to afford them. While eliminating the diaper tax is not a complete solution, it could allow many families to pay for another month's supply.” In the caption, she also noted that the price of the fictional diapers was chosen as that's “what the diaper tax could cost families annually,” pointing out that there are also many struggling right now due to the nationwide baby formula shortage. She urged viewers to donate to Baby2Baby to aid in all of the good work they do, especially in abolishing this tax, using the hashtag #ChangeTheDiaperTax.
    I question a lot of Goop here but this is brilliant.
