EauMG’s 2014 July Empties

July 2014 Empties

Can you believe it’s already August? They say when you get older that time flies…this is true. These months are starting to feel so blurry.

I didn’t empty as many products in July as I did in June. That’s because I didn’t have so many half empty products around. I started on my “new old stock” which I have more of than I thought. I’m such a cosmetics hoarder.

I’m still in a no-buy until September. I’m… Continue reading | 17 Comments

Strange Invisible Perfumes Lemon & Neroli Body Wash Review

Strange Invisible Perfumes Lemon & neroli

I’m sure that many of you are tired of the summer and tired of the heat. In the Seattle area, we have very mild summers. As I’m typing this it is 63º and overcast.

Yves Rocher Lilac Shower Gel Review

Lilac Shower Gel

I use it on a loofah so there is lots of foam. The formula easily rinses off and no residue is felt. This isn’t a moisturizing shower gel, so those with dry skin may not like the formula.

Eight Lavender Body Moisture & Body Wash Review

Eight Body Moisture Products in Lavender

Over the years I have tried so many lavender body products. I have been looking for body products that smell like actual lavender flowers drying in the sun. I have found it. Eight Body Product line’s lavender is perfect. My search is over. Eight’s Lavender isn’t too “medicinal” and has that realistic, natural sweetness of lavender with just enough medicinal to make it aromatic. It smells just like the French lavender growing in my cottage garden.
