Weekly Cheap Secret:

I am really happy with the fragrance of many Softsoap moisturizing body washes. I have already raved about their Mango Pomegranate. I have been in a real honeysuckle mood lately; it’s summertime. I’m also finding myself attracted to orange blossom scents and this is new for me. Once again, it’s summertime. It only makes sense to be attracted to these types of florals. I picked this up, unsniffed. It’s soap and it’s cheap and you can easily find it for $5.50 or under for 18 ounces. I figured if the scent was really gross I could use it hand wash undergarments or makeup brushes. Luckily, I like the strange honeysuckle and orange scent. Together it smells like a honeysuckle and an orange blossom mix. Think bitter honeysuckle. Not the best, but very nice for the money. My grandmother did hair and this scent takes me back. It is definitely a salon hair product via 1992 and I don’t know what it is but it is dead-on mystery salon scent. Of course, it foams nicely, makes a nice shaving cream and decent bubble bath. The scent does linger around once you are out of the shower. I don’t mind. It mixes nicely with some honeysuckle and orange blossom scents by Annick Goutal and Melissa Flagg. It’s fresh, summery, and very girly. Don’t purchase this if you dislike florals because you think it will be heavy on the citrus. It’s not. It’s much heavier on the floral than citrus. Don’t purchase this if you don’t like the odor of hairspray ūüôā or if you don’t like honeysuckle or orange blossom. You’ll hate this. Do buy it if you want a cheap feminine fragrance or if you like any of the things listed above.

Oh, and have a great 4th of July!

I use a lot of products, being a cosmetic addict and all, and I love this drugstore find. This shower gel retails for about $5.50 and is huge. The fragrance is really nice and fruity. It isn’t “pomegranate” per se because I have found that pomegranate is really hard to reduplicate. I still haven’t found a pomegranate fragrance that seems genuine. Anyways, this fragrance is fruity and smells “ripe”/”tart” and has a pretty expensive vibe. The mango is a wonderful touch to the mix. I feel like I can smell the skin of a ripe mango. It has a bit of a citrusy edge too. It is very fragrant in the shower but doesn’t linger on your skin too long so you it doesn’t fight with the other fragrances that you wear. I do wish there was a body cream in this fragrance because I would love to smell like this all day. It’s a very energizing fragrance. It has “moisture” beads which are OK. I don’t think it really makes a difference other than cosmetic, they look nice floating in the wine red gel formula. It lathers very nicely and a little goes a long way. It also makes a fab bubble bath. It is available at drugstores and Wal-Mart/Target and can be bought on drugstore.com.
