Disclaimer- The use of the word Frack as a noun, verb, adverb, adjective, participle, dangling participle or any other type of word id
purely a form of self indulgence and flattery. If it offends you- stop reading- I am the one that has it for my surname and quite frankly I LOVE IT! One more thing...This isn't a forum for Battlestar Galactica either- don't tell me you were sucked in and
then disappointed. ALSO- NO directional drilling here.
I am back! What the Frack is that, you said? Woo Hoo, I AM BACK. December came and went and left me with no time to blog! It was a CRAZY MONTH. No writing but I did try LOTS of stuff to write about!!
Here is my back story...I like to buy stuff. Not expensive stuff, like my husbands stuff, but stuff just the same. Cooking products and beauty things and stuff for my kiddos.
Sometimes it rocks- Sometimes not so much.
This blog is all about my stuff. Mrs. Frack's stash...I am going to give you the low down on the products that you may have seen out in stores and let you know if it is a great find- OR NOT.
Here is my rating system:
Flipping FRACKTASTIC- 5 Stars
Frack-a-lackin'- 4 Stars
SatisFRACKtory- 3 Stars
Back the FRACK off...- 2stars
WTF (what the Frack?)- 1 Star
Okay! This week's finds...
Schick Intuition Naturals Sensitive Care
Ok, you have to have seen these and wondered does that really work? It's the disposable razor that has a "skin conditioning solid" that encases the blades- always ready to lather- just add water. This version contains 100% Aloe with
Vitamin E, hypo-allergenic and fragrance free. Sounded GREAT! On top of all of that it's made with 100% recyclable packaging with recycled material. (not sure what that actually means but it makes me feel clever.) Week one: LOVE this product! It's quick
and easy and works. Wet it and it lathers -skip that WHOLE step of shaving creme. NICE! Clever and a time saver! The first sign of trouble came about 10 days into my new sassy, "save the planet razor" when I had to replace the head. Huh? My can of shaving
creme wouldn't even be close to being caput. Oh well, I kept the travel cap on it in the shower so I bet that is the reason it wore off so fast. Replaced it. Week two- how did I cut my ankle? Tiny, little cut...hmmm. Week 3- how did I scrape of a layer
of skin off my arm pit? NO I AM NOT KIDDING. WHAT THE FRACK IS THAT? The worst part? Bought my bundle at SAMS club so I have 50 and spent $100. (reality check: 12 heads/ 1 razor for $23) So there you have it. NOT a WINNER. Skintimate Shaving Creme and
Venus Razors I am coming home. Not clever but not cut. :)
Rating: Back the Frack Off
( not the worst because
it is 100% recyclable = clever)
I have used Sesame oil in the past but never tried the chili version. This is nutty, silky and warm. Not extremely spicy, but yes, you can feel it. It's perfect to drizzle on stir fries or into homemade
dressings. The bottle is little but you only need a small amount. My 3.5oz bottle cost about $4.00 but I have seen it cheaper at Cost Plus World Market (which by the way is one of my FAVORITE stores!). Listen to this description from one of Dynasty's retail
partners: "Made from pressed sesame seeds, steeped with red chiles, this oil has a rich aroma and a fiery bite with a lingering spice." Sounds exotic 'cuz it is.
If you want to try this oil here is a GREAT recipe:
(just sub the sesame chili oil for the vegetable oil)
