Fresh Bloom.

The title of Clinique's Spring collection is Fresh Bloom. And the products scream fresh, not only from the shades, but from the beautiful way they are presented too.

Down the Drain.

What do you do when your 15 year old son decides that he needs to shave on a regular basis? Not just a once a week shave, but a daily shave with a real razor and shaving cream? Well, you dig into your beauty closet and get him some shaving cream.

So I did, to a new can of Nivea Cooling Shaving Gel

This what is supposed to do:
"Revitalizes and moisturizes while shaving. Improves the condition of the skin and helps protect against razor burns. Enriched with advanced moisturizers. Contains Menthol and Vitamin F for immediate cooling and optimal care."

Well, it didn't get too far doing what it was supposed to do. As my son depressed the dispenser on the can,  the gel would not stop coming out of the can. So I quickly ran to my daughters bathroom to see if I could fix it without it squirting out all over the floor, and when it would not stop, I decided to grab the camera and video it.

See for yourself!
