a life changing experience.

I ventured into Pete's Frootique last night, and for the first time, I made it past the lunch bar and dug into the grocery store in the back. And boy did I dig! They had pomegranates on sale - which I have recently discovered are my new favorite fruit.. can you freeze the seeds? I'm going to try! - so I bought three of those, a cucumber, melba toasts, gnocchi, brie, and *drumroll please* Burt's Bees Lemon Poppyseed Facial Cleanser.

Let's be honest. I don't buy products that are over $10 for my face.. I know it's terrible and I'm cheap and not doing great things to my skin, but I usually can find other things to spend my money on. This was a tad over my $10 limit, but it smelled so divine I decided to buy it.

This. Product. Is. Amazing.

It's like spreading lemon meringue pie on your face. For people who have food-on-the-face issues, I can see that it would be uncomfortable, but I've been making face masks from fruit, oatmeal, and eggs since I was 13, so I lathered this stuff on like it was cream cheese icing on a carrot cake. Apparently I like food, alright.

It is smooth and creamy, and there aren't really enough poppyseeds to make it exfoliating, but they add a nice touch to the mixture. I was a little nervous that my sensitive skin would react to it, but I washed it off with warm water and a face cloth, and my face felt hydrated and refreshed.

I literally woke up this morning excited to wash my face. I haven't been this excited about a product since, like, I discovered the tampon.

P.S. I have three days to read the biography of Alfred Nobel, research the history of Halifax, and try a new recipe. The recipe might end up being a smoothie..
