lil' happy, lil' sad

First the good news! It seems the new marine naturals personal care line will consist of the aforementioned sea minerals, water flower, and refresh mint body wash; along with the same scents in foaming and gel hand washes. Sea minerals will also see itself in a body scrub (the only scent to make it into the body scrub line, not sure why. Perhaps they're testing it out.) I can't wait, August is really much closer than you think (scarily!)

AND now the bad news! It appears that the body lotion and shaving cream (cringe!) will not be making a return visit. At least not in the foreseeable future. You know, as for the shaving cream, I think it got mixed results. I read lots of reviews about how guys just did not like it for shaving, while women thought it worked great. It was a different texture than most guys are familiar with. And I'll reveal a secret, when I first tried it, I didn't like it so much. It was so thick and wow! But I think it's like coffee, or calamari, Ha! (but no, seriously) it's something that grows on you, and now I love it so! I think it's great. I think a lot of people just didn't give it a chance. Man! I'm so bummed, no shaving cream. I'm surprised. I think I'm gonna go get some more Goodwill backups! I don't wanna go back to Gillette, method! Don't make me! (I think we should start some sort of petition! What do you say?)

As for the lotion, it seems to be a weird thing for method. Ages ago they had hand lotion for a while in signature (which smelled like sweet water to me?), green tea + aloe and french lavender scents, then those went away forever. Then they brought out the bloq body lotion, but it was the first to go in that line. I think the lotion is a great idea, so I hope they revisit both of these products at some point! Especially the shaving cream. I was hoping for post shave lotion, and the such. Alas, I'm still excited for the new body/hand wash line! Refresh mint, come to papa!

I hate Method. Yes, I said it. It is almost impossible to find an all natural, synthetic free body lotion that does not cost an arm and a leg or come from Europe.

I am mad today.

Nathan - don't go back to Gillette - don't do it - please - save yourself!!!! Have you ever tried the honey-mango -something or other shave stuff from Trader Joes? very similar to Alba shave stuff also. I call it stuff b/c it's not really cream or gel - it's just nice!!!

I promise I won't go back to Gillette. I'll head on over to Every Man Jack. I think I used that before I moved to method's shaving cream. BUT I'm gonna go (uh, like today!) and pick up a few more backups. I hope this stuff doesn't go bad! Cause I got like six bottles of it.) The closest Trader Joes is, I think in Charlotte, which is like two and a half hours away. Sigh... I gotta go one day, though! Everyone says it rocks!

i don't care anymore. i started using the methodbaby body lotion. it smells yummy, and is better than any lotion i have ever used. if method dumps the baby line, then i'll get mad!
