Mind Blown. Seriously. There is a brand new hand cream from UK cult phenom Soap & Glory cleverly known as the Endless Glove 2-in-1 Moisture Mask & Hand Cream. A few years ago, there was quite a bit of hype surrounding the original Hand Food hand cream (I raved myself back in my early blogging days), but these days Hand Food is looking like the ugly old stepsister. The baby soft newbie on the block is called Endless Glove and it actually does what it claims! This stuff is truly amazing and I will gladly pronounce my endless love for this wonder cream.

Another week, another bag. Yup, it’s Ipsy time! They are going with the “theme” of “Beauty Schooled” this month, which seems appropriate given that it’s that time of year. I’m not sure how the samples fit into the theme, but then I rarely see much connection between the silly themes and the items chosen for the month. So let’s see what this month’s bag holds in it’s little plastic belly.
I can’t decide how I feel about this month’s bag. It a cylindrical bag, which is a nice change, but it’s so short that I’m not sure it would really hold much. It also has that lovely shiny plastic look that combines with it’s orange and white polka dot design to make me think of chicken pox. I’m not quite sure why, but it kinda does. Don’t get me wrong; I love polka dots, but it’s not quite working for me with this bag.

Oh. My. Soft. Skin! I am completely obsessed with the Deep Steep Dry Oil Spritzer! I have never really tried a dry body oil – or any kind of body oil for that matter, but I am so glad I finally did! I guess I always shyed away from dry oils because I assumed they would be somewhat greasy. That’s rather silly of me since I know that not all oils are greasy on the skin. Having now tried the Deep Steep Dry Oil Spritzer, I’m not sure I can ever go back to a traditional moisturizer!

Another month, another BirchBox! Sorry for having two of these so close together, but I’m trying to get back to posting these closer to the time the box actually arrives. So, this month’s theme is “Lighten Up.” In other words, it’s time to not take ourselves too seriously. Interesting theme, I suppose (it makes no sense! J). I’m always a fan of not taking myself too seriously, so I’ll go with it. So, now that we’ve heard some silliness, let’s get into the box!

I have what seem like the most sensitive legs in the world. I’m sure that’s not really true, but when it comes to shaving my legs, it seems that every nerve ending on my legs becomes the most sensitive things ever. Waxing? No problem. Hair removal creams? Big deal. Epilators? Well, not sure I’ve really tried any, but you’re getting the idea. However the second a razor nears my skin, my legs burn, sting, get raised bumps, get red bumps, you name a negative reaction and my legs will probably experience it. Whatever kind of shaving cream I try never makes much difference. It’s been an ongoing nightmare for most of my life. To add to the agony, the second I’m about to shave my legs, I undoubtedly end up with goosebumps all over my legs, which naturally increases the misery. I had basically just accepted my lot in life with razor burn and dealt with the irritation the best I could, but then I decided to give Coconut Oil a try. I’m not entirely sure why. I know it’s not an unknown use for coconut oil, but I hadn’t tried it before. I was completely dumbfounded after trying it just once and will never go back to anything else! J

Soooo…this is a rather late revel of my July Ipsy Bag, but it is what it is! J As I’ve said numerous times, it’s been a strange few months so the blog has been somewhat neglected. But better late than never…I think! J So let’s just get into this insanely bright pink bag!
As far as the bag goes, it seems kind of cheap to me (I mean, they’re all cheap and I don’t subscribe for the bags, but this one looks cheap). I don’t really dislike it, it just looks like a handmade craft project – which could be fantastic, but this just isn’t. It has cute scalloped edges, but it’s a rather cheap feeling vinyl. Whatever. No big deal, just not an impressive addition to my rather large Ipsy bag collection. I really need to get rid of a bunch of them! J
