I got this as a gift and I finally tried it this week. First of all, the scent of this is hypnotizing. Just like the red velvet flavor of a Sprinkles cupcake. The second I twisted the jar open, the whiff of the smell just brightened my day.
I scooped a generous amount (as stated) with my index nail and followed the directions… rubbed in circular motion on my lips. I tried so hard not to eat it but I had to taste it and it didn’t even taste bad. I was pleasantly surprised but the application. I wondered during those couple of minutes I was scrubbing on how my lips would feel after.
After I wiped it off with a towel, I washed it off since I was in the shower. I was still mesmerized by the scent that I didn’t want to stop rubbing it into my lips. My first time every trying a lip scrub, so I didn’t know what to expect.
As the jar states… something like “you’ll wonder why you never used it before” I can’t remember exactly but that’s my takeaway. lol
I got a bunch of masks from Bear when he went to Korea. He’s been begging me to try this one and finally after a year I did. I did like that it was a 2-piece set. Easier to put on. I do like masks but I feel like my skin feels great for the evening… This however comes with a cream you apply on your face before you put on the gold creepy thing.
After 20 minutes, you discard the mask and apply the rest of the cream. The cream is what’s amazing. I’m not sure if the mask is used to keep the moisture from evaporating… however my skin never felt better. Even throughout the night, into the morning until I took a shower and washed my face. However my skin feels much better days after this mask than any other.
I use overnight pads when I’m most heavy when I sleep. I also use pantyliners during the first couple of days and the last couple of days. I have this weird thing where I stop bleeding for a day and it appears again. And every time, it tricks me. Pantyliners come in handy.
I didn’t know what to expect, I never thought of going organic but after the first use, I’m a bit obsessed.
For me, I don’t know the difference other than to describe how it feels. It felt cleaner if that makes sense. The material was comfortable, I didn’t feel like I was sweating or smelly. The feeling of wearing Rael was a much better experience than Playtex or whatever other brand I’d pick up at the store.
And I’m not just saying this because I was sent this stuff. If you know me, I’m going to be candid about my opinions even if it was for free… it’s typically with food so this is a bit different.
I’ll use it again on my next cycle and see if my opinion stays the same…
The only product I use because I refuse to smell any other way. I love this scent and everything that embodies it. The quality of the product, they way it’s subtle but still aromatic. The home stuff, hair products, body products all have a long lasting smell. People are always asking…
I always say, “a lady should be complimented by her scent.”
I had a HUGE pimple on my face under my right nostril and Catalina saved my life. The item below is the better version because it’s the bottled version. She had the cotton swab version to give me so I took it. Basically there’s an oinment on there that removes the pimple immediately. Basically, it was too late for me because it was growing since Kansas. By the time I came back to LA, it was already ready to pop. I still applied it and the recovery period of the enormous pimple went quicker. I have a few cotton swabs left for any new pimple that may be brewing. I NEVER get pimples. Once in a while thing. New year new me, I guess.
My biggest pet peeve is when I see a man (in public especially, but in private as well) adjust their groin. I can’t imagine why the male species must put their hands in their private area when there are people around. Do you think I scratch my pubic area when my hair is growing back after I shave? Do I scratch my nipples when their itchy in public? No, I don’t think so… I would never. I have manners.
So the style of boxer that was gifted is a special one. Apparently, a guy invented boxer briefs with mesh panels that would separate the ballsacks from the thigh. Not that I know any better but Gordo swears it’s the best because he was gifted this boxer and finds it to be life changing.
I know I’m super observant, always so this behavior from men always catches my eye when I’m EVERYWHERE. I saw it at Disneyland, museums, church, airplane, seriously, EVERYWHERE. It fucking bothers me so much. So much I want to punch their face and kick their groin to make them stop. I find that mostly white men do it. He’s going to kill me for sharing this but Bear did it. Operative word, did. I made sure he fucking stopped it the first time I saw it. I still catch him here and there and boy do I fucking give it to him. Most of his KS friends do it too. I just don’t get it. I almost want to gift every guy I know this boxer. I know one Asian that does it but it’s because he’s been the blacker sheep of the family and he’s a bit peculiar. It’s almost expected.
Men, please refrain from having your hand go near your fucking package at all times. It’s disgusting.
Women, please start gifting this to every man you know.
Now, I don’t know if this is a sure bet but it’s better to try it out. I just bought a pair for Bear so we shall see.
My skin has been super super dry and it’s been very annoying. flakey skin on the face is not cute and I was getting really irritated. My friends who are into skincare have been suggesting products and though those individual products didn’t work, a combination of them did.
The Argan oil and Murad products were gifted by Catalina…
The rest were from a couple of different people… the two spfs were ones I purchased…
So I always put on the Murad Toner, I then put on either of the oils (Argan and PurOrganic) in the evening before going to bed.
For the day, I put on the toner again, eye cream, spf, AtoPalm and either of the oils.
My skin has softened up and the flakiness has minimized.
My skin felt like sandpaper and now it’s much better!
I rushed to get it fixed because I would not be able to deal with a broken nail on my middle finger.
The camo is really growing on me, I almost want to do this every time but imaging the wait, I just want to kill myself.
Getting my mani and pedi has been a luxury. I started when I started my new job at the company about two years ago. I took a break since I couldn’t afford it and would always have to change my polish weekly. It was a chore.
Now it’s a chore to go every three weeks. I try to go once a month because spending $100ish dollars twice a month is not acceptable.
My usual gem mani and regular pedi is $87 +tip, this was $112 +tip.
