Product Rave: Downy Unstopables In Wash Scent Booster

So you know of my love for 'smell goods'; well that isn't just limited to candles and anti bacterial hand gel. From the title you can see we're talking laundry, yeah laundry.


When I first saw these at the supermarket I thought, lazy man's fabric softener. Seriously, who has the time to always run back to the washing machine at rinse cycle? I know the modern models have the dispenser that allows you to put in the fabric softener at the beginning; but that ain't wha I working wid. #FirstWorldProblems
According to Downy's website: "You love the softness of Downy. Add the feisty freshness of Downy UNSTOPABLES, an in wash scent booster that goes beyond everyday freshness to keep active wear, towels, and other fabrics smelling “wow” right up until the next wash. So every day, you can indulge in the freshness you crave. Just pick a scent below. Then see how to use UNSTOPABLES—and what makes it so fresh, easy, and fun". 
So it doesn't replace fabric softener but rather prolongs the lovely scent on your clothes. 


I throw a cap full of these lil pellets(?) in with my detergent and let them work their magic. Downy's site has five scents -'Fresh', 'Lush', 'Shimmer', 'Spring' and 'Glow'- listed but I've only seen 'Fresh' and 'Lush' (pictured above) in Super Centre for $20.99. A bottles lasts me for approximately two and a half months. 

I love 'em...cause now if I fall asleep mid washing I don't have to re-rinse muh clothes. I still use fabric softener though...especially with things I hand wash :D

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
