First of all, the branding makes me genuinely happy. Whenever I open my medicine cabinet, there's this cute little Starface staring back at me. Oh, and they work! I don't break out often (blessed), but when I do, I throw on a lil star and see results. Truly wish I had this product as a teen.
My friend was consulting for Glob and sent me a few bags to try. INSTANT OBSESSION. The colors are so fun and the design on the bags is phenomenal. I love the mesh bag for shopping around the city and their bag "The Long Haul" has become an essential for almost everything I do. It has little sub-sections on the side of the main part of the bag, allowing for items to be segmented. Like, for example, when I go to the grocery store I put heavy items in the middle and fragile items (like fruit) on the side, so my lil blueberries feel protected. This is also the perfect beach bag for the same reason... towels in the middle... cans of seltzer, sunscreen, and shades in the little sections. I literally take this bag on every trip I go on because it's so travel-friendly (it scrunches up into a tiny little ball and it's virtually weightless). I've sent this bag to my friend who just had a baby. I'm a true convert lol.
I'm not sure if this is a product flaw or just because I've used the bag so much... but it tore at the seam after extended use. To be fair, I lug a lot of heavy stuff around, but would like to see a more durable version for hardcore living haha. (I re-bought the same back, fwiw).
I <3 Dieux Skin. My friend is a co-founder, but I promise this is an objective review. They've only launched 3 products – a reusable eye mask, a serum, and hand sanitizer... all effective, gorgeously designed, and made with intention (they painstakingly took the time to get the hand sanitizer OTC tested). My favorite product does happen to be the hand sanitizer. It's a spritz and it smells like eucalyptus. I've gone through 5 bottles already and bought some for my friends and family.
It's all great, looking forward to see what they drop next.
My friend was doing some consulting for Ghia so he sent me a bottle to try out. My bf and I became instantly obsessed, mixing a bit of Ghia with seltzer and putting it over ice. This drink lovingly took on the name "Concoction" and we finished the whole bottle in a week. The taste is bitter and herby, but not aggressively so. It feels so nice to sip it after a long day!!! I've been sober for 5 years and this is the first time I've ever been convinced by a non-alcoholic drink. It also helps that the packaging is incredibly chic.
No notes for the bottled aperitif. 10/10. I would say the canned spritzer version needs a bit more spritz.
