Rant & Rave: Body Scrubs

This Week’s Topic: Body Scrubs

Share: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about body scrubs! Always use it? Never use it? Effective?

my answer: I love ones that aren’t too coarse but aren’t too fine. I like when they stay solid enough that you can work them in, but then they dissolve as you do so, which helps me with timing!

MAC Archie’s Girls: Link Round-Up for

Thanks for staying with us these past few days as we reviewed MAC’s Archie’s Girls’ Collection! Because there were so many posts, here is a round-up of all of them in case you missed one! (And I’m half-way through testing Feelin’ So Good, and after that, I’ll do testing for Oh, Oh, Oh, and then we’ll officially be over and out on this launch!)  I will be reviewing Viva Glam Nicki 2 soon as well as the three lipsticks from Year of the Snake soon.



P.S. — I was always a Betty & Jughead fan. Knew it would never happen but always wanted it to! 🙂

And here are some quick photos of the mascara tubes for packaging (not reviewing)…
