I hope you’ve had a great week! Mine started off lovely. I came home Tuesday and there was a big surprise waiting for me. When I went to say hi to my rabbits, Vanilla and Mokka, I almost jumped 1 m high. There were 4 wiggling little bundles in their poo pot and a whole lot of loose fur surrounding these little black and pink bundles and around the pot. I saw the little elongated ears peaking out and I was instantly in love!
It appeared, my friends… that Vanilla has always been “Vanillo”! But because I had never seen anything “transpire” between my 2 rabbits in the whole year that I’ve had them, I’ve assumed they were both girls… So this was definitely a big surprise. I was so happy and looking forward to taking care of them and eventually find a sweet owner for them. But Pistachi, Caramel, Banana and Melony died on thursday after 3 days :'(… As Vanilla and Mokka are siblings, I’ll have to sterilize one of the two because their incest was probably the reason why the babies didn’t survive. But I was so devastated about this loss, that I actually want an extra rabbit to have healthy baby rabbits…
So yeah, what started off as a great week ends really sadly! I was so much looking forward to see them grow and become young bunnies :'(…
I decided to write a little review to take my mind off this whole thing. With the Sephora sales, I picked up a couple of products, of which the Sephora Peony Exfoliating Gum Wash.
This little jar comes with 160 ml of product and retails for 8,5€, but for the sales I paid 4,20€.
How does it work?
When you open the jar, you see a shiny white paste with pink particles. The product is so cohesive (sticky but essentially to itself), that it forms a thick paste. You almost have to pinch it to take some product out.
When you rub it on your body, it tends to be a bit slippery. But once it starts to lather and transform into a milky cream, the scrubbing begins.
As it is a gum wash, it is supposed to be enough to actually replace your soap or shower gel.
How do I feel about this product?
From the moment I pinched out a bit of product and caught a whiff of the amazing Peony scent, I felt relaxed! When I started rubbing the product on my body and seeing it slowly transform in this milky foam I was sold! It feels so luxurious!
Now, I don’t think it’s practical to use it in the morning. I see it more as a Spa treatment in the evening after a long day of work. I think it is super affordable. For you people out there who don’t like strong scents, I warn you: The Peony scent is quite strong.
I hope you don’t mind for me sharing this sad story with you, but I felt that those little rabbits deserved a little place on my blog. I hope you’ve enjoyed this quick review and I’ll talk to you in my next post!
