QVC Junky #7 - Falling in Love Olive Oil Scrub by Philosophy

When I bought this home it was at the right place and during the right time. I had just came home from being outside in the rain and humidity ,after the down pour, was severe. I hopped into the shower and when I applied this to my scrub, the slug that came off was actually embarrassing. It was skunky and filthy as if I hadn't showered that day at all. My skin felt exfoliated and smelled heavenly. Once I put the lotion on, the smell was locked in and the moisture was light. I felt soft and girly all over. The price for this is kind of steep. I ordered this 3 more times and then stopped because I couldn't make sense of spending $80 on a duo of lotion and scrub. I just couldn't. While I would love to continue to use this product, if Philosophy would come down to $50 for this, I could rationalize that spending. I already purchase their Purity which is a must have since I wear makeup. Well I am just starting to wear make up, but you get it. Anywho, if you have the money this is an awesome buy. The smell is amazing and it keeps your skin oh so soft. You don't have to wear perfume afterwards. You just lotion and go. I didn't notice any dry patches on my normally dry skin. I felt it was a good buy maybe once a year, but for my frugal brain for body products, this isn't feasible.

3 weeks before school is back in session

And... I want to come and give a brief update. I am on the Deans List for the semester that just past. I am trying to finish up my classes for My English Writing degree. I was a little nervous that Forbes listed the English Degree as one of the worst degrees ever. It is ok.. because I am taking English Writing, LOL not just basic English. No, it actually isn't a waste. I love writing and I have to do what I feel is right for me, not right for Forbes. I am truly happy class is starting back up in 3 weeks. The children will be back in school, and that means less yelling for me. Just have a house of teenagers and one 9 year old and tell me how you keep the peace. They will embark on new adventures of their lives and I will embark on my own. Continuing to work toward my goal in hopes of success. I have a lot to review and while I don't and won't have much time to review these items. When December Hits, I am going to pump out review after review. Well, with the 5 weeks I have to work with. Next year is going to be a very hard time for me. I am going straight through with no vacations. I just can't do it... I have so much work to do and no enough time. I have to study for my GRE all while studying for my regular classes. This means 2 days on campus, 2 days on my old campus and 2 days at the library and one rest day. I will manage. It will just take a few days, like always, to get things adjusted and into perspective. Well that is all for now. I will update in 3 months :)
