This has been featured in my last and first video, “What’s in my (Mulberry Alexa) Bag?” and it’s the L’Occitane Hand Purifying Gel ($7). As I have said this before, I’m not a huge fan of hand sanitizers because still in my head, it just “feels” cleaner to go wash my hands in running water than to put some slobbery gel on my hands and believe my hands are much cleaner.
But I have been repeatedly told by those more entrusted in science that that is NOT so and even if it doesn’t “feel” so, I should go with it and believe that hand sanitizers sanitizes and does it well.
I was in Sephora waiting on line and you know how they have the row of travel size products displayed all up to the cash registers, and while you’re tapping your foot waiting for your turn to pay, you consider the products on the way, adding them to your basket and just— it’s a smart move Sephora, it is. So anyway, I was waiting on line and I saw this product and I don’t know, I felt like, why not?
It smelt wonderful, like L’Occitane’s trademark lavender smell and somehow the lecture of how important hand sanitizers are in mix with L’Occitane’s wonderful smell, and the decent price made me pick it up and buy it.
I haven’t gotten in the habit of using it when most necessary though, but when I do remember, I think, wow this feels great! I’m not sure hand sanitizers are supposed to do this, but it extremely softens your hands! The gel doesn’t feel too slobbery and the wonderful smell decreases the discomfort if any. I love it!
The only thing is the packaging. Though pretty stylish for just a hand sanitizer, it tends to just blob out too much when using it. Other than that, I think it’s a handy little thing!
Tea gives you a sense of tranquility, being, and healthiness. I’m drinking tea much more than usual and days when I’m feeling icky and coffee is much too strong for my like, I resort to a hot cup of Tropical Green Tea or a Pomegranate Oolong Tea.
These are currently my two favorite teas! Harney & Sons have amazing quality tea, and what I mean by that in my sense of amateur tea-tasting is that 1) the texture of the tea does not leave a bitter taste, 2) the combination of tropical fruits and green tea, or the combination of the pomegranate and oolong is just superb, 3) the smell is delicious and so completely refreshening!
I go for the Pomegranate oolong whenever I’ve eaten oily or heavy food. Oolong does that job of breaking down the oils and helping you digest better. The tropical green tea is just, the smell is so fruity and fresh that you’ll want to grab for it several times a day!
I am a complete coffee lover, but even I would want a nice storage of quality tea that I can brew up any time I’m in the mood— which is quite often nowadays.
Why not take a break from the heavy coffee and try so refreshening tea? xx
