Mad for SuperBad

I love to shop. Oh yeah, love to shop. However, I like to cruise the web to do my shopping. It's sort of a double thrill - you get the enjoyment of searching, the thrill of finding the items, and then it's like it happens all over again when the package arrives.

One of the things I've recently purchased was a set of body products from Superbadsoap. In this set was a sugar scrub, body powder, and roll-on perfume.

I've always been a powder girl. Even when I was little, I can remember getting into my mom's powder and slathering it all over myself. So, when I saw there was Girls with Glasses dusting powder in this set, of course it was the first thing I opened. Can you say love? It's so silky and decadent. It absorbs into your skin without getting gummy. And the scent? Well, SuperBad says its "Vanilla buttercream frosting laced with blackberry," but it's not sugary sweet. You don't smell like a cupcake or baked goods all day.

I've always loved perfume, too. Can't tell you why, as I'm not that much of a girly-girl. So I opened up the Miss Behaving roll-on perfume. It's just as nice as a luxury perfume, but with a much nicer price tag. This perfume has a nice, long lasting scent without being overwhelming. "Wildflower honey infused with vanilla beans" is how Superbad describes the scent. I find it to have a slight essence of baby powder, as well. This has become one of my everyday scents.

Finally, I tried out the Japanese Cowgirl sugar scrub. skin is so soft after using
this. It's great for exfoliating. I used it the day before applying faux tanner, and the tanner took so evenly. And the scent - another fabu one! "East embraces West with tart yuzu softened with saddle suede" is how Superbad describes it. I thought it had a bit of citrus, as well.

All in all, I'd have to say Superbad's products are at least the equivalent of luxury brands with a down to earth price. And their scents are very grown up & sophisticated without being stodgy.
