And until we can travel again, a glimmer of paradise has been found. "I hate floral and powdery scents, which are hard to avoid when shopping for natural deodorant, but Megababe's recent addiction of Soapy Pits Daily Deodorant to its lineup gives me the odor-busting formula that I love about Rosy Pits but with a fresh cedarwood and lime fragrance instead. "I'm a diehard red lipstick lover and tend to gloss over any other lippies, but since I've been working from home, I've surprised myself by taking to Tower 28's ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss in Spicy, which is billed as a 'sheer-ish red. ' It delivers a lovely wash of red with just one swipe (though I like to build it up a bit more), so I don't have to give up the color I so dearly love and miss.
