Klorane Mango Butter Collection Review

Klorane Mango Butter

I rarely ever review haircare products. Aside from skincare, is there anything else that really varies this much from person to person? We all have different needs and expectations. There’s also additional confounding factors like your plumbing/water, season/climate and how you style your hair (heat tools, air dry, etc.). All of this makes reviewing hair products too intimidating for me!

Rose Week 2018 – The Blackcurrant Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

When Diptyque launched Eau Rose in 2012, their copy emphasized how they were finally paying tribute to the beauty of a rose. This was odd for a few reasons, but the biggest one being that the brand launched something very similar in 1983 – L’Ombre dans L’Eau.
