CLEAN Reserve: Sueded Oud Fragrance

Product information:

Sueded Oud is a fresh and creamy approach to a traditional oud fragrance. It is a discovery of natural textures and an exploration of the fluid movement between the brighter and darker facets of fragrance.

Each CLEAN Reserve fragrance was created to be dynamic and evoke, not memories of the past, but possibilities and experiences yet to be discovered. Each is linear without much movement from top to bottom, making it ideal for layering and blending.

Notes:
Incense Oil, Blue Cypress, Birchwood, Red Pimento, Honeysuckle, Temple Oud, Night Blooming Jasmine, White Magnolia, Fir Balsam, Sarcocaulon, Soft Suede, Gold Patchouli, Black Amber, Praline, Skin Musk, Olibanum Tears.
Style:
Sophisticated. Mysterious. Sexy.

What else you need to know:
The nomadic Himbas tribe waits until the hard, spiny bushman candle completes its natural life cycle before harvesting the bark to sell for fragrance extraction. Continued use of this incredible shrub provides support that allows the tribe to preserve their traditional lifestyle and fosters sustainable plant growth.

Review:

This is another fragrance I received for my birthday. This makes my top 10 list of favorite fragrances.

This scent is technically unisex. It has a fresh, woodsy, and musky scent. When layered with the CLEAN Reserve Blonde Rose it smells feminine, fresh, and intoxicating. The ability to layer CLEAN fragrances is fantastic. It added to the  benefits of the fragrance.

Yet again with CLEAN Reserve, the price is cringe worthy but based on the quality it is worth it.

Review:

I got this fragrance in a travel pack for my birthday and I honestly can’t express how much I love this fragrance. It smells clean, fresh, and natural. It reminds me of nature actually. I wear it nearly every day because it smells so good. It can also be layered with other CLEAN fragrances–which is awesome!!

The price is the only problem I have with this product.

If you like fresh and natural scents, this is something to try for sure.

Dollar Shave Club

Prices range from $1.00 to $9.00 for razors, plus the refill blades are very affordable.

For new subscribers, they offer promotions and discounts.

In each package you get samples and they come in an envelope with just razors but with add-ons like shave gel it will be shipped in a box. Shipping is very fast when your subscription ships.

I personally chose the Men’s 4x razor because I really dislike women’s razors in general. That is the $6.oo package but for new subscribers it is only $1.00 in the first month.

The razor blades for the 4x last about a month no matter what part of the body you are shaving (as a woman) not sure about the men’s longevity on the razors though. The razor is very gentle and does not leave bumps or cuts. When it starts to get dull you will feel it.

Impression:

Well Amazon sent me a smashed box — but I over looked that and went on to try out one of these masks.

The masks are flexible and look like cloth but I am not entirely sure.

When I looked at the back of the package, the instructions and information was in Korean so I spent a good amount of time using Google Translate to figure out how these things work.

Once I determined that I needed to rinse and dry my face first then put on the mask I proceeded to. That was great and all aside from it being huge. I had to fold parts of it so it would stop sliding off. Then I waited 10-20 minutes to take off the mask (I chose 20 because of my oily skin).While the mask sheet was on my face it was very moist and not drying and setting onto my face. I proceeded to dab it with a paper towel and that seemed to help it stay on.

The fragrance and tingling sensation is utterly fantastic, it feels better than most of the spa treatments I have tried.

Mask Removal: Easy removal with no pain, quickly and smoothly peeled off my face. My skin felt dry after the mask was removed and still tingly. The mask did not pull anything out of my skin even after 20 minutes.

Pros: Comes in a 10-pack, pleasant scent, tingling sensation, overall great value given what it is and what stores like sephora charge for similar items.

Cons: Box and instructions are almost entirely written in Korean, mask is too big for my face, mask is very moist and will slide off the face.
