Advent Blog: Love, Bad Gal Lash, and a Body Conditioner
I have found all the Christmas quotes that I liked, so I wasn't sure what to do, but then one day I thought, why not just put quotes I like? It can be about topics that have to do with Christmas like love, joy, charity, family, etc. So my first quote is a very famous one about love. You probably have heard this at a wedding. I love it. This is also one of my favorite paintings by John Waterhouse. I think it is Guinevere and Lancelot. He painted redheads a lot. I have Christmas quotes for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but the rest are non Christmas quotes.
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." ~1 Corinthians 14:4-8

Benefit Countdown to Love Calendar
Day 14: Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara
I was hoping to get a mascara in this calendar. I haven't really liked the one I was using from the drugstore. I just finished the Benefit mascara I got as a free birthday present from Sephora. I really liked that one. Normally, I am happy with the drugstore mascaras, but I've been missing the Benefit one. This doesn't mean I'm going to switch to a higher end mascara because I think there are ones at the drugstore that are just as good as the high-end ones. I don't want to pay more than I need to for a mascara, but I will enjoy my little samples whenever I can get them. The brush on this thing is huge! It's like bigger than my eyeball! xD It gave good length and volume.
Lush's Rosy Christmas: Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
This came wrapped like a present, so you can give this to someone for Christmas or whenever. They have a lot of packages like this. I wanted to try something rose scented because that is one of my favorite scents. This is what the website says, "We wish you a rosy Christmas, complete with this gorgeous gift of luxurious treats for the shower! This pint-sized package contains fan favorite Rose Jam shower gel and Ro's Argan body conditioner for soft skin and decadent, floral showers all winter long. Give a Rosy Christmas to the hostess, friend, mother or sister who could use a reminder to take time out for themselves during this busy holiday season."
This is the Ro's Argan Body Conditioner. The website says, "Luxurious rose-scented shower lotion for the softest skin that ever was. LUSH product inventor Rowena made this decadent, rose-scented shower 'lotion'. She noticed how much she liked the sultry soft feeling hair conditioner gives her hair, so she thought how nice it would be if she could have the same feeling for the body too. With scoops of cocoa butter, cupuacu butter, almond oil and Argan oils, and the fragrant scent of fresh rose petals, this is the most luxurious body softener that ever was (if we don't say so ourselves!). After washing up, slather yourself all over with this new invention. Rince, pat dry and revel in supremely soft, rose-scented skin." When I opened the package it said that if you turn in 5 Lush containers, empty, you get a free Lush face mask!
I think this is a neat idea: to have a conditioner for your body. I really need it for my feet! I'm curious to try it today. I will take a shower later today and come back to share what it was like.
Review: It actually doesn't smell like roses to me. It smells like pie, and I have a weird aversion to pie smells. It makes me feel nauseous. When I was little I was sick and had pie and then threw up, ever since then I connected the two together. I also don't like the way it feels. Usually when you put something on your body and you wash it off, you feel it washing away, but this stuff sticks to the skin, so it feels weird to me. I'm used to lotion, I guess. Also, there wasn't much in the container. I feel like this will last for one more shower and then I will be out of it. I wouldn't get this again. I'm disappointed.
