Over the weekend I sat in bed filled with righteous indignation as I watched former stars bemoan their now wrecked lives on Celebrity Rehab. Almost as quickly as I passed judgment, I realized that I too need rehab. Having made a decision to move toward a more mature scent I found myself opening up my new "cake batter " scented scrub and lotion by Dylan's Candy Bar. The scent I consciously avoided a few weeks ago was now being smeared over my hands. While in the store I thought about not making the purchase, but my urges were too strong so I bought it. Surprisingly Sephora didn't have a "try me" sample available so I just purchased without smelling the scent. I vaguely remember smelling it in another Sephora, but that was about two weeks ago, now the joke is on me. The cake batter is nothing like the Jacqua butter cream frosting or some of the other cake scented treats that I have tried in the past. Initially it smelled like batter but now it just makes me want to vomit.
While I may not be fond of the scent Dylan's Candy Bar has produced more "paraben free products that last long and really moisturize the skin. The "candy butter cream", priced at $20.00, is thicker than the lotion I posted on previously and it works well, keeping your hands smooth and silky. It includes jojoba, glycerin, shea butter and while excluding sulfates,parabens and propylene glycol.
**Note- propylene glycol comes in different strengths but it has been connected to brain, liver and kidney damage in mice, when experiments were conducted.**
The scrub is brown, that just threw me for a loop but anyway it is a light scrub. It is pretty creamy but it includes some sugar grains to give you light exfoliation. Priced at $20.00
American Music Awards
Does Mariah always need the wind blowing through her hair when she performs? lol
Rihanna always chic and fab even though I wasn't fond of the cream colored frock she dawned during the ceremony. However, her peep toe Christian Louboutin heels rocked.
Justin Timberlake's white shoes= YUCK
How do you know you are officially mainstream? When Beyonce has middle aged women in the audience waving their hands to "put a ring on it"..lolWhen I saw Toccara, I immedialy thought about Dukes of Hazards for some reason. I just couldn't get with this dress, but she wears it well.
Did you notice the weight Queen Latifah has dropped? She looked great.
Which outfits did you like or dislike?
