March 2019 Finish Line

This entry into the Finish Line series for March, 2019 focuses on skincare. (I find it difficult to “pan” any product other than skincare.) It also has a bit of a twist–a new product that I did not purchase which has made its way into my possession. Plus there’s a bonus visit by the Egyptian god of the dead. Intrigued? Read on.

No–I did not go into some sort of looting spree 7-Days-to-Die-style. (Best zombie apocalypse survival game ever? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!) This month as I was just about to finish my body cream, I received an email from Influenster that Soap & Glory was sending me the Mist You Madly Daily Smooth Body Butter to try for free.

Surprised–why yes, I was. Because Soap & Glory is one of my favorite brands. I have written about their products numerous times. And the body butter is wonderful for months with colder weather. (Their body milk is perfect for warm weather–but I digress.)

So I didn’t feel much of a twinge moving this new product up in the rotation. Because I didn’t actually buy it. I already know that I love the formula. And I am out of body cream/body butter. (I have lotions and body milk that I need to go through from my “stash”, but I use those in warmer weather.) The scent, and the packaging, however, are new.

For a mini-review–the scent is soft, but lovely. Intoxicating if you like florals. I am a bit torn on the packaging, though. The product is amazingly moisturizing and thick. It is harder to squeeze out of the tube than body creams from other brands. For me the plastic jar packaging Soap & Glory used in the past is better.

What is it replacing? 


Sparkling Nights, an ultra shea body cream by Bath & Body Works, has been my go-to moisturizer for the last month. I used it until and could not squeeze any additional product out of the tube, and then used scissors and a binder clip to get an additional week’s worth of product out of the package.

This product has a light scent with hints of pear and is perfect for the winter months, especially if you do not want something that is overpowering or too “Christmas” themed past the holiday season. The packaging is beautiful and it kept my skin well-moisturized through the cold weather. I would repurchase this again.

Because Sharon asked for his picture I present to you Anubis. I will share his story in future posts.

I want to thank you for coming on this journey with me. I have received a lot of response from these articles. The topic of conscious consumerism has resonated with many of my readers–particularly in the areas of beauty and skin care products. 

Let me know below in the comments where you are in your journey with minimalism and conscious consumerism. Do you have any questions about Influenster? Soap & Glory? Bath & Body Works? The zombie apocalypse?  Please share!

    1. Exactly! I am holding off buying anything new until I go through what I have or it gets too old to use. It sounds harsh, but this stuff expires.
