I rarely finish products. So when I do use something down to the very last drop, it is a big deal. At least, to me it is. This week, I had to say goodbye to three sink-side staples, may their blissfully empty containers rest in peace:
1- Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant: Even I think it is funny that someone as sweat-obsessed as myself chooses this fancy schmancy deo over a hard core clinical version every time. And you can trust that if it didn’t work, I wouldn’t use it.
2- Vichy Aqualia Thermal Cream: Vichy has been a skincare favorite of mine for years- and when I was given the opportunity to showcase it on HSN, I was treated to an in-depth look at everything that makes the brand so special. I could go on for paragraphs- but in the interest of short and sweet, I will save it for another time. This cream is so insanely hydrating- and this time of year, my skin is so insanely dry- that I don’t think I could put my makeup on in the morning without it. In seconds, that uncomfortable tightness (you know, where your face feels like it is going to crack every time you smile?) is gone and I am left with refreshed, soft skin.
3- Korres Vanilla Guava Shower Gel: I know, I know- I agree, spending more than $5 on a shower gel is pretty silly. But this one really is divine. Love the warm vanilla scent, it gives the best lather (justify the purchase by reminding yourself it can also be used as a shave gel, perhaps?) and, well, there is just something about Korres…
