Traditional Raincoats

I’ve had the same old wetskins raincoat for as long as I can remember! Lately I’ve been wanting to update my rainwear with a “traditional” yellow fishermans type raincoat. These four rain jackets are the finalists! They are numbered from top to bottom, left to right. I hold my outerwear to a high standard, it has to be super functional, and super cute. So the question is which one did I buy?!
A post featuring the chosen raincoat is coming up soon!

Green Beaver Deodorant

My latest deodorant conquest is Green Beaver’s natural deodorant in the scent Citrus. I tend to shy away from lemon scented cosmetics because of the common use of lemon scents in cleaning products but this deodorant really smells like delicious lemon sorbet. I smelled all the scents available: lavender, citrus, tea tree, wild rose and vetiver, and citrus won hands down. Oddly enough no “claims” are made on the packaging of this product. By claims I mean things like “blocks odor for 24 hours straight” or “leaves no marks on clothing”. Here are the things it does claim:

  • Aluminium free
  • Paraben free
  • Propylene Glycol free
  • Vegan
  • Non-gmo
  • Not tested on animals

But how did it perform?
