Dr. Sandra Lee, more widely known as Dr. Pimple Popper, has awed people for years with her curiously mesmerizing videos of blackhead-, cyst-, and just plain pimple-popping. But you don’t need to have a shock-worthy growth or an odd fascination with the repulsive in order to take advantage of Dr. Sandra’s services—she recently released a line of skincare products that you can now buy at Target.

The collection features seven acne-fighting products from SLMD Skincare (for Sandra Lee, M.D.) aimed at bridging the gap between the dermatologist’s office and the skincare aisle. She selected the products based on what she recommends to her patients, essentially giving you behind-the-scenes access to her honest opinion as a doctor, no appointment necessary.

The items range from a full 30-day skincare regimen to an SPF 15 daily moisturizer, with prices starting at $25. Here's what to buy:

SLMD Skincare Daily Moisturizer With SPF 15; $30

This lightweight daily moisturizer protects from UVA and UVB rays, which damage and age your skin more than you probably realize. It’s oil-free, so it won’t clog your pores like other sunscreens and SPF products.

SLMD Skincare Salicylic Acid Cleanser; $25

You can trust this gentle daily cleanser to strip away dead skin, dirt, and bacteria without causing your face to feel raw or dry. It’ll help you get rid of pesky blackheads and whiteheads, and it’ll keep your pores clear to prevent the formation of new ones.

SLMD Skincare Salicylic Acid Spot Treatment; $25

This little bottle of liquid will ensure that you never have another pre-event pimple meltdown. Just roll it on your spot and it’ll reduce redness and inflammation while clearing dirt and oil from the affected pores. You can apply it up to three times daily, but since it does dry out your skin, the directions recommend that you start with a once a day application and work your way up as needed.

SLMD Skincare Salicylic Acid Body Spray; $38

Because sometimes the worst acne isn’t on your face, Dr. Sandra Lee has developed an anti-acne body spray to fight the dirt, oil, and bacteria that builds up in hard-to-reach places—and the 360° nozzle will save you from having to practice contortion in order to spray that elusive middle-of-the-back spot.

Buy it: Target

SLMD Skincare Glycolic Acid Body Scrub; $35

Though Keratosis pilaris—the condition that causes bumpy patches of skin often on your arms or thighs—is harmless, it can get in the way of you feeling like the flawless human that you are. For that, Dr. Sandra Lee has created a body scrub with glycolic acid, which helps dissolve the keratin and dead skin that build up and cause rough, bumpy skin.

Buy it: Target

SLMD Skincare Glycolic Acid Body Lotion: $35

In addition to exfoliating, it’s really important to keep your bump-prone patches of skin moisturized. Glycolic acid not only clears away keratin buildup and dead skin cells, it also draws in water molecules. That’s where this lotion’s shea butter element comes in—to seal the water molecules in your skin and keep new bumps from forming.

SLMD Skincare Acne System Kit; $50

A four-piece SLMD skincare kit

Treat your current acne and prevent future breakouts with these four products designed to last you about a month. The kit includes a gentle salicylic acid cleanser to unclog pores and fight blackheads and whiteheads without drying out your skin, a lightweight BP (benzoyl peroxide) lotion that kills acne-forming bacteria, a hydrating facial moisturizer that won’t clog your pores, and retinol serum to shrink your pores and make your skin feel softer than ever.

Available Only on SLMD Skincare's Website (For Now): UV Bounce; $40

UV Bounce brushes

This one isn't yet available at Target, but because “SPF” are the magic letters in skincare these days, be sure to check out Dr. Sandra Lee’s just-launched UV Bounce, an SPF 30 sunscreen powder that you brush on top of your regular makeup as a lightweight finish. The 90-day supply comes with an attached brush, and you can choose between three different powder shades. It’s also a fantastic fix for potential scalp sunburn, since we all know what a mess it makes to rub liquid sunscreen on your part.

Make Your Own Ship in a Bottle With This LEGO Set

Building a ship in a bottle doesn’t need to be a stodgy affair—especially when you’re doing it with LEGO bricks.

The 962-piece set ($70 on Amazon) is based on a design from Jake Sadovich, a longtime LEGO fan from Idaho. Sadovich spent three weeks designing his own version of a ship in a bottle using 1400 LEGO bricks before uploading images of the finished result to the LEGO Ideas site in November 2016. His project received the 10,000 supporters it needed to garner a review from the LEGO team in less than two months, and in August 2017, the company green-lit plans to build and sell an official set based on his design.

Placed inside a bottle made of transparent bricks, the miniature ship boasts plenty of detailed features for its 5-inch-long size, including sails, six cannons, a crow’s nest, a compass (sorry, it isn’t a working one), and a flag. There's even a wax-sealed cork built out of LEGO bricks, too, as well as small LEGO pieces designed to serve as the water beneath the ship.

Some of the other fan-submitted LEGO Ideas projects the company has brought to life include the NASA Apollo Saturn V ($200) and a replica of the Central Perk set from Friends ($60).

Sling TV’s 14-Day Free Trial Gives You Access to Countless Movies and Shows, No Credit Card Required

Sling's 14-day free trial doesn't require a credit card, so you won't accidentally be charged once it's up.

You’ve probably encountered more than one so-called free trial that required you to input a credit card to access it. And if you’re like many of us, you have probably forgotten to cancel the trial before the free period ended—more than once. But Sling TV is looking to offer users a free trial that’s, well, actually free. From now until April 5, new subscribers can access over 50,000 on-demand movies, 45 channels, and more during their free 14-day trial, no credit card required.

Fittingly dubbed the “Quarantine Special,” the free trial gives viewers access to a Sling Blue subscription, which offers channels like CNN, MSNBC, Bravo, A&E, Cartoon Network, Nick Jr., and more. The Blue subscription also allows you to stream on up to three devices simultaneously and record live shows on their cloud DVR.

Rather than having to sign up for a long-term contract like with traditional cable, Sling is a month-to-month service that allows you to stream content to your TV or computer/smartphone through web browsers, Roku, Amazon, iOS, and Android devices.

After the free trial, you have the option of signing up for the Sling Blue or Orange subscription, both of which are $20 for the first month and then $30 after that. There are a few key differences between the two. According to Tom’s Guide, with Orange, you won’t have access to NBC networks. And with Blue, you won’t be able to watch ESPN or the Disney Channel. Orange only lets you stream on one device at a time, whereas with Blue, you can stream on up to three simultaneously. However, you can swap between the two for no extra cost, or you could combine the subscriptions for $45 a month.

Much like Sling, Disney Plus also allows subscribers to enjoy seven days (with a credit card) for no cost, and you can get more details by heading here. And if you're looking for more ways to save money as a cord-cutter, check out our guide on the cheapest ways to do so.
