Pimping

While I like to post things from the web that are interesting, I very rarely pimp anything that I've personally bought and used. So I'm going to break with tradition and tell ya'll about a couple of things I bought at Libellezomerweek.

Last year, they had a Lush booth, and while I balked at the prices, I kicked myself for the rest of the year for passing up a chance to wallow in their Honey, I Washed the Kids soap. It smelled like something you'd want to take a bite out of; honey and caramel.



I'd been fantasizing about buying this soap since last spring, so I was disappointed when I discovered that this year, there was no Lush booth.

But I found Sabon instead. And once I'd sniffed a few samples, cheerfully forked out a ridiculous amount of money for some of this:



Butter Cream. OHMIGOD. This stuff is amazing! I got both the Ginger/Orange scent, which reminds me of Creamsicles; and the Lavender/Apple, which just sort of smells clean and Spring-like. My skin is silky smooth, there's no greasy feel, and I swear my wrinkles are retreating. :c)

Then, I went and bought hand and foot cream at the Rituals booth, and again, while it was fairly costly, it was worth the price. The hand cream is nice, but since my hands aren't all that dry, I didn't really notice any outstanding results. My lizard-like feet, however, have now become like kitten's paws, only minus the fur. It smells like basil and mint, and really make a huge difference. So I'm going to recommend that anyone with croc skin on their feet give this a try.

I cannot check if those pieces of soap smell like something tasteful, but they sure do look yummy.
Reminds me of an experience I often have when going 'book'shopping. After a while I like to get some snack, without knowing what specific.... just walking the Leidsestraat, wondering what to get... not a pizza... too fat, not a Danish, too sweet... oh that's looks a shop full of yummies.... oh... it's a soap specialist.
wonder what the looks would be.
"Shall we giftwrap it?"
"No, I'll eat it just here."
