Once I met a very nice Now Smell This reader who asked me, “Do you ever not like a fragrance?” I do write more positive than negative reviews for Now Smell This, mainly because I only write one review per week and I’d rather spread the word about something I like than waste my time bashing something that wasn’t so great (unless it’s really bad, or doesn’t live up to its promises).
The same could be said of my product reviews here, but I’ve recently compiled a mental list of beauty items that I wouldn’t try or buy again, and here are five of them!

It’s that time of year…when holiday specials start appearing on television. As least we’re not bombarded by “star-studded” Christmas variety-shows as frequently as we were in the 1970s-80s. I recently wrote a run-down of a few of the most memorable examples of that genre. You can read it here.
