Fighting the Flu the Beauty Binge Way…

No, I don’t have exciting news like there’s a new breed of flu shots that also plumps your skin or aids in skin hydration (though I think scientists should get right on that).  The experts say the best way to prevent contracting the flu is by washing your hands frequently and long enough to sing “Happy Birthday” twice.  Right… So first of all I annoyed the shit out of myself when I tried this method and second of all my hands were getting dry and chapped.  What I needed was an incentive to wash my hands. Sure enough, while browsing NEST Fragrance products at Neiman Marcus last week I smelled their Wasabi Pear Liquid Hand Soap ($22) and instantly fell in love with the crisp, tart scent that combines “Anjou pear and fresh ozonic watery notes infused with the essence of wasabi.”

Once I started washing with the NEST soap I immediately noticed that I didn’t need much product (not even half a pump) so it justified me spending more than $5 on hand soap knowing it will probably last several months.  And, I didn’t need to sing some irritating song twice. All I had to do was slowly lather my hands, enveloping my senses in the intoxicating scents.  The liquid soap also didn’t leave my hands dry since instead of using harsh detergents, NEST uses natural plant extracts to both clean and nourish.  Not only does this soap make me 100% addicted to washing my hands but the smell lingers which makes me look like a freak in public places since I’m constantly sniffing my hands. Oh, and by the way the soap comes in 5 other delicious scents! Get on it!

    Now I just have to find a Neiman Marcus near me…
    Then again, I’m sure I could get it online too… Ha haaa!

    Btw, I hope we’re still getting our last 3 days of smooches posts! I’m absolutely addicted to lip treatments/sticks/slicks/stains/glosses/etc., so I’m in love with this series. lol
