Hey everyone, it’s March, hijacking Ann’s post so you won’t worry. This weather is awful, innit?! I felt like I was walking around in a sauna today. I’ll be back on the Posse when it cools off and my brain isn’t melting.
Even despite near-ubiquitous air-conditioning, at the end of the day during these dog days of August, I often seem to wind up feeling slightly sweaty, sticky, and definitely un-fresh. A late shower takes care of it, but on days when I’m tight on time, scheduled to within an inch of my life, another solution is necessary.
Riding to the rescue is a new fave of mine: Bulgari Eau Parfumee Refreshing Towels. These come in several different scents (Au The Vert, Au The Rouge, Au The Blanc, Au The Noir) and all are nice, but the Au The Bleu has turned out to be my favorite (BTW, please forgive the lack of accents).
Just tear open the packet, unroll the surprisingly substantial towel, swipe generously over all the sticky parts and voila! — instant refreshment. These leave behind a gentle waft of scent, soft enough to leave you feeling fresh but not overpowering to those around you. The refreshing towelettes are perfect for travel, lovely to leave in a little basket of goodies in a guest room, to use as little gifts or for stuffing stockings come the holiday season. Now Bulgari’s little gems don’t come cheap, but I’ve gotten a few in various stores’ beauty GWP bags and have even bought a couple off eBay.
Another anti- sticky heat buster is Jean Nate splash, a tried-and-true refresher that’s been around for ages and that many of you also adore. It’s lovely as is, but I keep meaning to put it into the fridge in a spray bottle, so I can spritz and spritz with chilly abandon.
What about you? What products, tips or tricks help you to freshen up and survive these dog days of August? Or for those of you Down Under, when your sweltering season hits, on the other side of the calendar.
