The spoils of my mini vacation

I went on a mini vacation this weekend and found the biggest bargain ever, buy 1 get the other for .99. I packed my basket with hair related goodies only to discover that the sign wasn't supposed to include the items I picked up.
But lets do a little math:
Misleading signs + Frustrated employee = PJD gets her products for .99 cents...lol
The cashier was so upset that the signs were so confusing that she said "I don't care you get it for .99 cents". I thanked her profusely..lol Needless to say you will be getting many hair related posts in the future.
Now on to the business of MAC!
I went away to attend a very special event and while I was in the hotel I was upset because I forgot to pack an exfoliator, but all was not lost. While I was ravaging the mall I came across a MAC store and found the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. You are literally rubbing volcanic ash from the island of Vanuatu and sugar crystals on your face. I LOVE THIS STUFF! It is supposed to leave your skin feeling soft and it does. This exfoliator is supposed to foam, but you will only see the foam in your sink not on your face. I should also mention that this product can be used on your face or body.
Priced at $19.00 this exotic exfoliator is worth a try.
Here is a pic of the scrub up close (click on the picture for a closer look).




Here is my first video, notice the foam in the sink, not on my fingers.

Misleading signs infuriate me. And yes..F.Files is right. Your readers will definitely want videos a looooot. Which is a good thing but bad b/c it's time consuming. Ha!

Anywho...I tested that volcanic ash today and it felt amazing. I must have!

HI Lily,
I have very sensitive combination skin so I have some dry areas on my face. It is recommended that people use this scrub 1-3 times a week but I would not go that far. I used the scrub twice in one week and I did not find any problems so far. I didn’t use it at all this week, I do have a feeling that it would irritate the dry areas of my face if I use it 3 times a week so I will use it twice a week at the max.

Maybe the skin exfoliator need water to work...

@Anonymous I like the exfoliator and I think it works well. I did add more water today and it foamed more on my face but the major foam was still in the sink...but it works so I won't get hung up on foam.
thanks for reading
