February 2013 Favorites

A few new favorites this month:

Afroveda Power Oasis: lasting moisture for days!
Dr. Bronners Castile Soap: shampoo, body wash, face wash, household does it all.

I am so annoyed with products and companies! Why make conditioners without slip? Why sell poorly formulated products? Why sell products that aren't properly preserved? Why send out products that aren't full? Why insult customers? Why not take a business class...or two?
