The French Lavender didn’t stand a chance, but Crunchy Betty knew that the full-sized bottles of Natural and Tahitian Vanilla were meant to be passed along. In her words:
With trembling fingers, I tore into the huge package and immediately opened the french lavender. It smells like running through the English countryside, the gentle wind tousling your hair as you throw it back and smile at the Orlando-Bloom-esque man who’s frolicking behind you carrying a bouquet of flowers and an engagement ring.
But, sorry. You can’t win that one. I opened it. It’s mine.
And I keep looking longingly at the other two boxes full of aloe goodness, but I know in my heart that the universe wants me to pass on the love.
Now, I can’t give you a full monte review here, because I haven’t used the Aloe Cadabra in it’s, um, marketed use. As you know, Fiance’s out of town and … yeah.
However! I will tell you that this stuff is AWESOME as a hand softener. I use it a couple of times a day – just slather it on – and my hands don’t only smell divine, but they’re super soft.
And it worked wonders that one time a few days ago when I forgot that the backs of hands and broilers ne’re should meet. I had a huge burn that is now completely healed (four days later), and I gotta thank Aloe Cadabra for that magic.
I can only dream of the other kinds of magic it could bring.
Those two bottles have moved on, but keep an eye on Betty for natural beauty recipes, home remedies, and life humor…and who knows what else she’ll give away! (Plus you can still participate in the sharing of first-kiss stories if you want to!)
