Girldom Rule #3,654: Within any given group, there’s always at least one girl with an obscenely large bottle of hand sanitizer in her purse.
Homies, I’m one of those girls (bit of a freakshow when it comes to germs).
And if we were chatting over coffee, I’d be baptizing you in Burt’s Bees Aloe & Witch Hazel Hand Sanitizer ($5).
I blame it on the countless hours I’ve spent people watching. The fingers picking noses and cleaning ears, teeth and, OMIGOD, butts! — I done seen it all.
Purell used to be my standby, but Burt’s stole me away. I think the liquid spray absorbs faster than Purell’s gel does, and it doesn’t leave a film.
My nose feels Burt’s also beats Purell in the scent department. It smells like fresh cut lemons to Purell’s overpowering vodka.
And if you’re into natural products then you’re in luck. Burt made a product to kill 99.99% of germs without relying on harsh chemicals. I checked the list of ingredient, and it’s indeed very short — just corn alcohol (ethyl), water, witch hazel extract, glycerin, natural fragrances and aloe.
Because of the alcohol, it could be a little drying if it’s used a lot, but I think it’s less drying than Purell.
For now, Burt’s only sells it in small, travel-friendly 2-fl oz bottles, but I’m hoping to see larger refill bottles soon. LOVE THIS! Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
Groove *is* in the heart
Last night I hipped and hopped to my first dance class in months, but halfway through I was cursing the mirrors. I looked so uncoordinated from so many weird angles… It was almost too much to bear!
My dance teacher busted out a pretty fun routine, though, with Groove is in the Heart by Deee-lite. Remember that song? Seriously, I think it’s physically impossible to listen to it and not feel good.
How are things with you tonight? Anything new to report?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Soon, October will fade from memory, taking Breast Cancer Awareness off the front pages for another year. Many charities rely on funds raised this month to carry them through the rest of the year. Using this widget, if you can make even a small donation today, I’ll match you dollar-dollar up to $250 total, so your $2 could pack the fundraising power of $4!
