i understand speaker boehner is blaming a lack of work on the senate. >> the thing is, they have passed a lot of bills out of the house. the senate hasn't taken a lot of them. now there's certainly been a lot of major bills in the senate that have had broad bipartisan consensus support, thinking of immigration reform that was not taken up by the house. if they don't pass -- if seven more bills don't get passed out of this congress and signed into law, they would be the fewest passed ever since last year, which is the last congress, only 62 bills that got passed. john boehner will say don't judge us by how many bills we have signed into law but how many bills we've stopped. >> yes, i suspect he would say that. what was the top accomplishment? >> ending the shutdown. it wasn't good for the republican party.
it wasn't good for our area certainly. you know, no matter where you are. and i think that's probably -- and that's not a very high bar considering that's the major accomplishment. >> stopping the shutdown may be one thing. people are going to remember who started the shutdown. >> yeah, maybe. republicans would like to point to the website. we've seen just an amazing flip politically in the last three months. >> a lot to watch the next three weeks. >> for more check out first read on nbcnews.com. well, in about six hours now, the capitol christmas will light up and the night sky will be all aglow on the west lawn of the capitol. it will begin at 5:00 this evening with john boehner flipping the switch to illuminate the tree for the first time it will be lit from dusk to 11:00 p.m. the 88-foot spruce arrived a

there are certain things to take into account, i'm going to explain some of these products. facial cleansing. everyone has to cleanse their face. there's a number of cleansing brushes out there. some are a couple hundred dollars and some are $20. >> is there a difference? >> there is a difference. >> now, let me just show new one first. this is just a rotary brush. and you'll see it rotates in a circle. for just basic cleansing, it's great. you can use it in the shower. but, say, for instance, the person you're buying a gift for wears a lot of makeup, then this is going to kind of move it around the face. actresses or models or people who like to wear a lot of makeup, you want to use something like a clarisonic brush. this oscillates. as you can see the difference,
it doesn't move in a circle around the skin, it oscillates into the pore. so you're moving it manually around the skin. so it jiggles the makeup out. but there's a big price difference between these two. >> how much? >> $100 or so and $20. get what a person needs. now, there is a concept of gl o glycotoxins. they are one of the number one things that cause us to age. so there's skin is care products now that tend to inhibit the glycotoxins. in our office, we have a kos
cosmeuceutical one called cream no sugar. there is a morning cream and night cream. although there is a difference in price, there's not much difference in the technology. >> everybody is in the drugstore. who do you look for? >> it will usually advertise in market that it diminishing glycotoxins. when i did my research trying to find it, i didn't find any products out there. so there is one in the physician's office called cream no sugar. >> okay. >> and there is in glytera at saps a sephora. this is by clinique. it is canary yellow. it hides redness.
if you need a quick fix, this is what you use. if you use ahead of time, about four weeks or so, this will diminish redness as well. and then there are prescription products that we all have. >> either go shopping at the doctor's office or the drugstore with ideas in mind. >> yes. >> great ideas. thank you. >> 11:53. coming up, the latest information on the wreck that killed actor paul walker. plus, chuck bell will be back with when rain is expected to arrive this week
