If You Poop, You Need Poopourri

Poopourri

Poop is life. And yes, y’all…you can sit there and clutch your pearls all you’d like but you know it’s true. Pooping is a part of life and it’s a part that I’m not too shy to talk about because um, hello…everyone does it! Who cares? NOT doing it regularly (haha, see what I did there?) is a bigger issue and one that pregnant chicks know all too well. But for the most part, if you’re breathing and you’re human, chances are at some point, today or tomorrow, you will likely take a poop. And that’s where Poopourri Before-You-Go toilet spray comes in.

Yes, this is a real thing. And it’s a cool thing because it works!! I heard about this product yearsssss ago and almost split a rib laughing at it. Not because I thought it was silly but because I was mad that I didn’t think of it first. A pretty natural toilet freshener that traps stinky poop smells BEFORE you…go? It’s ingenious! Poopourri would have saved my entire dorm living experience. Because nothing, and I mean, NOTHING is worse that having to go #2 in a bathroom that you have to share with 40 other chicks. Talk about invasion of privacy.

Poopourri review

How does Poopourri work? Easy! Before you poop, you spray it in the water, poop and flush. That’s it. No bells and whistles. No magic words. Nada. And I know you’re all like “Well duh, B…won’t air fresheners do the same thing?”

Um, no. I don’t know about you but I’ve never met an air freshener that worked effectively. They usually all reek of poop scented flowers. Or a poop scented beach. Or a poop scented citrus bowl. They just don’t WORK. And you’re left with a splitting headache after inhaling all of those toxic ineffective fumes.

Poopurri also gives us the following…

  • NO formaldehyde
  • NO phthalates  
  • NO parabens
  • NO aerosol
  •  NO synthetic fragrances

Esposo says “It’s effective without being overbearing.” Dude loves this stuff and I’m glad he does because while they say finances may be the #1 reason relationships end, I’m thinking funky toilet time (followed by bear-like snoring) may be the real reason.

Poopourri Trap-A-Crap

PROs

  • They carry SO many various scents. Many are “man-friendly” and they even have seasonal fragrances.
  • It works. It really, really works. 
  • Makes for a great gift – as a joke and for…real.
  • They make travel sizes in case that Starbucks beverage decides to make a wrong turn while cruising at Target.
  • A few spritzes makes the entire bathroom smell lovely

CONs

  • Pretty pricey at about $9 for a 2 oz bottle. 
  • Probably not for daily use. You’ll run out pretty quickly. I’d only use in emergencies.

Travel Poopourri

OVERALL

I love love LOVE Poopurri. We’re keeping it stocked in our house and I’ve been gifting it to my newly married gal pals. Everyone laughs when they receive it but they’re secretly thanking me.  It’s a hefty investment for a toilet spray but it truly the gift that keeps on giving. Plus, you can’t really put a gift on an item that removes the potential embarrassment of you, know…being human. 

Where To Buy

  • Amazon ($9.48/2 oz bottle) – read the reviews. EVERYONE loves it!*
  • Poopurri.com – they’ve got a larger selection of fragrances and sets.

 

Would you try Poopurri?

The Awesomeness That Is Katy Perry’s Killer Queen

Katy Perry Killer Queen fragrance

If  you know anything about me,  know that I love Katy Perry. In today’s music market you have so many people trying too hard. Katy Perry has raw natural talent and I appreciate that. I can put her music on when I am happy, sad and when I work out,  when I’m on a road trip and her music is. Katy Perry came out with her third perfume ,Killer Queen, in August and I am so excited that I received a sample to review.

Katy Perry Killer Queen perfume

So I know you’re reading this and saying “Of course YOU’LL love it, Courtney.” But really…it is actually a good perfume. I own Katy’s other perfumes, Meow and Purr, and Killer Queen is my favorite. It is a more adult perfume than the first two and has a nice floral scent. I love smelling good, but I have to be careful about what perfumes I use because I will get a migraine by the simplest smell. Killer Queen doesn’t give me a migraine at all. Aaaand, it lasts all day.

Katy Perry

Oh, and I have been getting compliments on how nice I smell which is always good. Of all the awesome things about the perfume, the bottle is my favorite. Katy Perry’s first two perfumes were in the shape of cats, but this bottle is fit for a queen. Classy, right?

A 3.4 oz bottle goes for $64 at Macy’s and most big department stores. Spring is coming up soon and it might be time to change your signature scent. Would you give Killer Queen a try?

Fragrances: LUSH knows Love and Cocktails

Have I told y’all how much of a fragrance snob I’ve become? I haven’t worn anything other than all-natural roll-on’s and solid perfumes all year. There’s just something about traditional fragrances. I don’t really like them anymore. They make my allergies go nuts and I just prefer lighter close to natural scents. Hence why I love my LUSH Gorilla perfumes.

Remember when I reviewed that bad boy Karma? Uh yeahhhhh. I am still in love with that fragrance. But wait, there are some new kids on the block.

LUSH has added 13 new scents to the Gorilla Perfume line-up and I’ve got my hands on two of ’em.

Say hello to Love and Cocktail.

Love: With a name like Love, you’ve got expect a scent to smell good. Because if it doesn’t, you’re all like, “Love stinks” and well, that….that just ain’t good. Kudos to LUSH for giving Love justice. Literally. This fresh apple and cinnamon spice fragrance can fancy girly girls, manly men and everyone in between. I absolutely love this scent but The Guy didn’t think it would suit him too well. But whatever. What does he know anyway? 8) Love’s main notes Lemon, lemongrass, bergamot, apple, cinnamon, cassia, jasmine, rose, ylang ylang

Cocktail: The Guy, however, DID like Cocktail. “Now this,” he said. “Is better.” Cocktail certainly has a bit of bite to it. It is unique in its own right and its creation is an homage to traditional French 1930s perfumeries. It is a little on the stronger side for me but somehow…I still like it. It’s a floral fragrance with notes of ylang ylang, cananga, jasmine, rose, orange blossom, oakmoss and sandalwood.

I can’t wait to get my hands on some more of these fragrances. I’ve got Superworld Unknown and 1000 Kisses on my radar. Solid perfumes are so what’s hot when on the go.

You can toss ’em in your purse, carry-on and bookbag. The solid perfumes retail for $12.95 but if you are more of a spritz-y guy or gal, LUSH has them in various sizes to suit your needs. But you can only snag ’em  online here.
