Annoyed over a deodorant


I am sitting here completely annoyed over the fact that I ruined a perfectly good (and brand new) deodorant. I was puttering around my room, unpacking from my trip and trying to get ready for a LONG day of class tomorrow (and I was avoiding studying for my exam). I decided to open up the deodorant I just purchased and get it all ready for morning. You know how you have to click it about a hundred times before any products comes through the little holes? So I sat there, click click clicking while watching the Bachelor make his "hardest decision ever" when the stuff starts oozing through. Already having deodorant on, I did what any sensible person would do... took a cotton pad to wipe up the excess off the top.

STOP!

DO NOT REPEAT AT HOME!

Talk about an utter fail. The top of the bottle looks like it has sprouted feathers. I literally have a chicken sitting on top of my deodorant. The cotton ball stuck to that bottle like I had tar and feathered it. I tried wiping it clean with a wet wash cloth - it only served to make matters worse.

On another annoying note, Kroger brand cotton pads are absolutely horrible. They are very, very stringy and fuzzy. I wouldn't recommend trying to be a cheapie there (like myself).

I have been trying to save money lately, which probably is why I am so annoyed over my new pet chicken and Mr. Fuzz pads. I need to start project 10 pan. Project 10 lush has begun. See 2 posts below for more info on these. My first lush item used? Gnome Name Bubble Bar. Do I recommend it? Errr.... probably not. Here is my mini review:

Gnome Name: from the Christmas collection, which comes out every year. This bubble bar turned my water red (which was more creepy than festive) and made lots of lush, white bubbles, no pun intended. It had a nice, light smell, but it wasn't as fragrant as some other lush products I have used. I used it just like a regular bubble bar, crumbling it under the running water until it was all dissolved. Would I repurchase? Probably not... just because of the creepy red water. As a reader observed... "Looks like the little guy died in there".

Hi Elle,

Something you can try to get rid of the icky mess on the top of your deodorant... take a plastic butter knife and scrape off the top.

Good as new!

I did the same thing once, but with a perfectly good mascara- saw that it had mascara around the opening of the rim and wiped it off with a cotton pad. Well, you guessed it, shredded cottom stuck in the opening of the mascara tube, somewhat inside of the tube, just a huge mess. Terrible!

That has happend to me before with my deodorant and this time, they like to break apart on me when I'm almost done with it and I have to toss it since I cannot deal with the pieces of the deodorant. It does sound creepy that your Gnome Name Bubble Bar turned your bath water red.

I totally agree about the Gnome bar! Its sooo cute & then it turns your water like blood red! Its like the poor lil guy died! Good luck with project 10 pan! <3

The satsuma (satsumo?) santa bath bomb did the same thing to my water. It smelled great, but the water color really creeped me out. I kept thinking it looked like someone had bled into my bath.

I used the satsumo santa bath bomb one day and it turned the water red. It really freaked out! Looked like I had sliced my wrists.

Now that you have a pet chicken, you might as well give her a name... LOL Chandler and Joey (from Friends) also had a pet chicken. Are you by any chance planning on getting a duck too? LOL <3

I would have suggested using something to actually scrape the deodorant, which you could still prolly do. Good like with your Project 10 pan/lush!

Costco sells these big packs of premium cotton rounds.... they honestly feel like fabric and don't lint at ALL! Plus they are organic :)

Hahaha poor Elle & her deodorant! I love reading your blogs! You have such a way with words & you're so good at describing things. I'm always like oh, what is she going to say next? Even if it's just about something silly like deodorant. You should write a book one day!!

hahaha that sucks! sorry

Hmmm..red water is something I am not interested in..I just did a review on the "big blue" bath bomb and it turned the water a really pretty turquoise color, which I liked. Although it did look like I rolled around in mulch or something because of the seaweed at the bottom of my tub. haha Have you used that one?

roxana on March 2, 2010 at 4:44 PM said...

You can try using a knife, but I suggest you use a razorblade and... cut the chicken off :P
