lustful surprises!

I have many friends that think I'm kinda crazy in the head. (Shh... silence is golden. And I don't need your opinion, too!) They're all "How can someone lust soap as much as you do? It's not right! It's not sane! It's soap!" They just don't get it. But sometimes, someone pops up that does get it. And gets me, too! That newest someone is method advocate Gary! You'll notice he's been helping out on many of the posts lately, sending me soapy intel whenever he finds or reads something method!

So how about this for a surprise! Today my boss hands me a small, kinda heavy envelope! What's this? I never get packages at work! Cause no one loves me, and no one wants to send me anything, cause I love packages, and opening packages, and throwing the peanuts into the air, and ripping open the tape, and squealing with joy at what could be inside! But no, no one ever sends me anything! It's all work, work, work at work! What's up with that?! Well, not today, mister (and ma'am!) So I'm all "huh?!" I rip it open, and what's inside... four tiny bottles. What do they say? "white tea with aloe vera, olive leaf with aloe vera, magnolia with aloe vera, and lime + sea salt hand wash." From Gary! Here's the short version of what he wrote in the letter that accompanied these bottles:

"...I thought the keeper of the blog should have some samples to sniff. How else are you going to give the people what they want - your honest assessment of whether the new scents deserve our cheers, or our jeers! Happy inhaling!"

Now how sweet is that! Different Targets will "launch" new products at different times (I think it has more to do with how quickly they reach the boxes in the warehouse, and actually put them out on the shelf!) And my Targets always seem slow! Gary has been lucky enough to find all the new goodies hitting the shelves in the last couple of weeks, and I was so excited to get an "in my hands" miniature sneak peek of these new products, until I can grab the full size version!

I gotta say, lime + sea salt might just become my favorite new scent! I lust it! Thanks, Gary!

guest review - limited edition hand wash

limited edition coconut grove, watermelon patch and (not shown) daffodil bouqet
method luster Jamison not only found the new 'Now in Season' method limited edition hand washes at his local Target this weekend, but wrote a guest review on them, too!


guest review | by Jamison Combs

Look what I found while wandering my local (regular, non-Super) Target tonight! It appears spring has sprung a bit early. Even with the temperatures still dipping into the 30s here in "famously hot" Columbia, SC, these spring scents make me dream of the warmer days ahead.

Love the new shrink wrap design. My only criticism is that the dispenser doesn't align with the graphics/front of the bottle. It's a bit frustrating for this OCD method man!

Scents include:
+ coconut grove
+ watermelon patch
+ and daffodil bouqet
Even though I still have a stock pile of winter oak and frosted fir, I couldn't resist the coconut grove. I'm a sucker for anything coconut! It smells amazing! (Personally I think they all smell great, and accurately reflect their names.)


Thanks, Jamison! Do you have a guest review you'd like to submit to method lust for an upcoming post? Simply send the review (and any accompanying photos, if you have some) to method lust!

sneak peek - wood for good

Check out wood for good's spiffy new bottle redesign! I noticed these the other day during my usual obsessive run to Target (really, I want to know if they have a file on me at this point. Cause they should. No, but seriously. - They should...) The new bottle is taller, thinner and flat-ish. It has squared sides, which I think is awfully cute! You can view the old, rounded bottle in the above photo (left) for comparison! I also found these at Lowes Hardware (which is where this photo was taken. Hence the woodland shelves!)
