Bar Soap

I went through a phase where I only used body washes. Who didn't love their big, fat, lathery poof? It was the thing to do.

Over the past few years, I've grown to love bar soap once again. There's just something old school about it: rolling that slippery little bar around in your wet washcloth, watching the little bubbles rise up to greet you, knowing that it's going to be there waiting for you in the shower when you get back.

Good things:
  1. Okay, this was totally an impulse buy. I did not read any reviews before buying this. When I smelled the soap in the box, I knew it was going home with me.
  2. The scent is light and intoxicating.
  3. The ingredients are top notch. They spared no expense.
  4. Huge amounts of moisture here, but not greasy in any way like some of those oil/cream body washes. I would say it moisturized well enough that I didn't need lotion and I felt moisturized until my next shower. Kudos for a bar soap.
  5. Great for shaving.
  6. Very inexpensive. ~$7 for 6 bars.
Bad things:
  1. Scent doesn't last long after the shower, but that's expected.

Liquid Liner

Oh, Wet 'n' Wild. You dirty bitches. How do you do it? Making products that are better than departmentstorepiecesofcrap for a fraction of the cost. Take me now.

:: Wet 'n' Wild Megaliner Liquid Eyeliner ::

Good things:
  1. Sweet Lord this is a great eyeliner. I don't wear eyeliner often, but when I do I like to vamp it up and make it dramatic. Liquid liner is best for that, but dang if you can find one that doesn't look like a 9-year-old applied it. This is the best liquid liner I've ever used and it's bone-cheap.
  2. Lasts all day.
  3. $3.
  4. Brush is perfect for creating a gorgeous, rich, thick line that isn't gonna make you look like you got hit with a softball. It makes my eyes look pretty and cat-like. Meooow.
  5. I like the black, it's very, very black. Which is exactly what I want black to be.

Bad things:
  1. Once the bottle starts to dry out you'll know it, because the shit starts flaking and going all schizo on your eyes.
  2. It's not waterproof. Just something to keep in mind.
  3. If the brush is getting too long for your taste, just cut the end off a bit with a sharp pair of scissors.
