The Lipstick League – Week of 2.29.16

Question of the Week: Which shower gels/body washes/soaps are currently in your shower?

EauMG’s Favorite Shower Gels

Marilyn Monroe Shower

As corny as it sounds, I view bathing as a ritual. For me, it represents rebirth. At the end of the day, I can wash away my sorrows and start fresh.

Avon Candid Perfumed Skin Softener Lotion Review

Weekly Cheap Secret:

I love these little old school highly fragranced body lotions. I hope Avon realizes that this “retro” packaging is what sells these Perfumed Skin Softeners. Well, at least it does for me.
