Something new!

Thought I'd do something new tonight and give a product review! So here we go!

I hate washing my hands. I hate getting wet. But! Having dystonia, which launches frequent assaults on my bladder, I spend a lot of time racing to the potty and naturally - washing my hands a thousand times a day (give or take a few).

The problem with frequent hand washing, is that it removes the natural oils from your hands causing them to dry up, turn to flakes and completely fall off. Naturally, if your hands fall off it's going to be very difficult zipping up your pants after you potty, so over washing isn't a good idea.

In steps Avon's ever so famous Skin so Soft, known mainly to outdoorsmen and hikers as the perfect mosquito repellant! However, this isn't your usual SSS! This is SSS's winter soft hand wash!

This stuff is terrific! Usually after washing my hands, within minutes they dry up like bread in a toaster. But so far, this seems to be keeping them nice and lubricated - like oil on chips! Speaking of which! I'm getting hungry!

Anyway! If you want to keep being able to zip up your pants, give the SSS hand wash a try and let me know what you think! :]

Torture by Chocolate

Last month I got this great idea to order a demo of Mark self santuary chocolate orchid body butter. It sounded good! And when I got it - it smelled good...too good!

I quickly spread it all over me lil' bod and then it happened. A massive chocolate craving washed over me like a flood. I panicked. There was no way to get to a store to satisfy my craving.

Meanwhile, the rich smell of chocolate was teasing my nostrils sending my brain into chocolate spasms. I opened the jar back up and sat smelling the sweet smell of chocolate. My body relaxed as the soothing scent of chocolate quietly flowed into every cell of my being. Chocolate. Chocolate. Chocolate.

I could stand it no longer! I dashed into the kitchen, grabbed the container of Nestle Toll House cocoa and made a large jar of homemade chocolate syrup. Three days later - I'd finished the jar.

Lesson learned. Never wear chocolate during the day. AND! Mark's self sanctuary chocolate orchid should come with a warning label: This body butter could possibly cause excess weight gain and unnecessary body fat. :]

(from what i understand, the chocolate body butter won't be available until Jan 8, but it's so worth making yourself hungry over.) :]
