Leaving Hand Cream Out In Colder Temperatures…

TonyMoly Peach Anti-Aging Hand Cream

Hello everyone! So, if you’ve read some of my reviews, you might recall a review I did on the Tonymoly peach hand cream. Well…I have a funny story about that (That has taught me something new)…

So, as you all know, the weather has been getting colder, so my room’s been getting a lot chillier these past few weeks. I was almost at the bottom of my hand cream (And am now on the hunt for another to try…but that’s a different story altogether), and noticed that something strange was happening to it.

The consistency seemed to be getting a little thicker, but I just attributed that to the colder weather. However, after a few days, the cream actually turned into something that was less a cream and more a balm! I was pretty surprised, actually…

Obviously, I kept using it, but it was a pretty interesting experience. I would take out a chunk of the cream-turned-balm and warm it up between my hands, but no matter what I did it always took a lot of rubbing before it was absorbed into my skin. I basically had to rub it between my hands until it broke into smaller chunks and then rubbed those into my skin until everything was absorbed.

A little bit annoying, but hey…couldn’t let it just go to waste. And at least it still smelled good.

So, lesson of the day? Beware when leaving your hand cream out when the weather gets chillier.

Or maybe it’s just me and my weird luck.


Spring Cleaning? More Like Fall Cleaning!


It’s that time of the year again…when the weather gets chillier and I can practically sense the arrival of snow (Although that’s not for a few more months…I guess I’m just anticipating it too much). It’s also that time of year when I sigh and realize it’s time to pack up those sleeveless chiffon blouses and graphic tees and break out the long-sleeves and sweaters.

It’s fun discovering just how much new clothing I have (Or that beloved sweater…that I forgot I had) and finally finding that striped top I had been looking for for the past month. As much as I love winter, though, it’s a little sad knowing that it’ll be 8 months or so before I can wear that new flowy blouse I bought.

I sometimes wonder if I’m the only person who cleans out my closet during the fall, too, throwing out clothes that don’t fit or that I don’t wear anymore or that short black tank top from 9 years ago with the hole in the side…anyways, I always hear people talking about ‘spring cleaning’, but I totally consider this a form of cleaning.

Strangely enough, I don’t clean out any of my make-up and nail products and such until around May…so I guess I actually do seasonal cleanings 3 times a year instead of just once. Now, if only I could figure out what I could in the winter…maybe my room, heh.

Seriously, though…does anyone else do this? Or am I just breaking things up into 3 parts when I should just get it all over with at once?

Anyhow, that’s my little blurb for the day…thanks for stopping by! Sorry if I bored you…this is why I created a blog separate from my other one! Just a little collection of posts of just whatever come to mind…

Well…at least the different coloured leaves will make for a lot of pretty sights in the next month! Maybe I’ll even share some pictures on this blog…hmm…still trying to figure some things out, I guess.
