Dew Puff Konjac Sponge Reviews

Dew Puff konjac sponge

What is a konjac sponge?

A. It’s a sponge made from konjac root, a natural plant fiber. Are you familiar with shirataki noodles? They’re made from the same konnyaku root/yam!

How do you use a konjac sponge?

A: It’s so easy. You just wet it. With water, it becomes soft, and well, spongy. Rub it on your face in gentle circular motions and rinse. If you use a cleanser, make sure to rinse it out of the sponge very well. Hang up and let… Continue reading

Tory Burch Love Relentlessly Perfume Review

Tory Burch Love Relentlessly

To refresh your memory, I really was not a fan of the signature Tory Burch perfume. Looking back at my review, I guess I was unjustly harsh. But, that was how I felt at the time. I didn’t expect to like that fragrance because I’m not a fan at all of the Tory Burch aesthetic (even though there are plenty of people that successfully pull off this preppy, waspy, colorful 1970’s looks). When I received a sample of Love Relentlessly, I didn’t think I’d even try it… Continue reading | 10 Comments

Favorite Suncreens for the Body – 2017 Edition

Pola Negri

I posted my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face. I wear sunscreen every day. Saying that, I don’t wear sunscreen on my body daily because most of the year, my body is not exposed. I mostly wear sunscreens for the body in the summer or if I travel to a warmer climate. I do try to wear sunscreen on my hands every day. So, my needs and requirements are different for a body sunscreen than a daily face sunscreen.

Unlike my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face, you won’t… Continue reading | 5 Comments

Le Jardin Retrouve Citron Boboli Perfume Review

Le Jardin Retrouve Citron Boboli

 

Le Jardin Retrouvé Citron Boboli (once known as Citron Poivré) is the sort of refreshing citrus that I’m craving on this hot, muggy city days. It’s inspired by the Palazzo Pitti’s Baboli Gardens in Florence. When you’re sweating it out in the subway terminal like a sauna from your nightmares, the streets smell like urine and garbage and every piece of grime sticks to your sticky body, I want something that smells crisp, refreshing and well, transports me to some place like the Baboli… Continue reading | 2 Comments
