Once upon a time...

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

Once upon a time...your cousin Jamie used to plunk down $65 for Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish. To her, its the best thing smoking in body scrub. Matter of fact, she bought at least two a in the summer and one in the winter. But tis' hard times and now she has two 'chil'ren' who like Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren and just asked for a $190 telescope for Christmas. A FOUR YEAR OLD asked for a telescope he saw in a magazine so he can "look at the moon". She had cable TV and an Atari in her own room at age 5, so she feels like she can't turn him!

So, she cuts back, on herself, as she has done since August 18, 2004 and finds alternatives to her fine taste in beauty products with a rare occasional splurge here and there. I mean, a diva must keep herself up!!! She found in weekly visit to the most 'raggedy-ist' Wal-Mart on the planet, located in her hometown, Tree Hut Sugar Shea Body Scrub in Brazilian Nut. It has all the qualities of the Fresh Scrub and 90% less of the price. It's smooths the skin, it smells sooooo decadent that she has use it every day since she got it. The price? 5.88. Plus, there are other kinds such as Coconut Lime in the same brand!!!!

Go get it!!!


Review: Sunsilk Hydra TLC 24/7 Creme...

I decided, after checking to see if the Elasta QP Mango Butter came in a bigger size, not to purchase it right now. So, headed to Wal-Mart in search of a hair creme I'd used when I recently ran out of Mango Butter. Sunsilk Hydra TLC 24/7 Creme, in 2oz size, happened to be hiding under my sink with the 2oz. matching shampoo and conditioner. I loved how it made my hair very soft, left no residue, and it didn't look greasy. Even after I sealed my hair with my oil mixture, the shine was subtle and the condition of my hair was even softer. I found the bigger bottle of the Hydra TLC 24/7 at Wal-Whizzle for 3.23. A bit less in price than the Mango Butter and even better results!!
