Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick Of The Week: Cashmere Mist Deodorant/Anti-Perspirant

Since when does a deodorant turn you on to the corresponding perfume? Since now.

A month ago, Amber and I met up in suburban Philly for a Marshalls/TJ Maxx raid. While perusing the beauty selection, Amber turned my attention to a mini tube of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant/Anti-perspirant. Its powdery vanilla scent fragrance had me at hello. But, for some reason, I bid it adieu and sat it back on the shelf.

And from the moment I got in my car and drove out of the parking lot, the fragrance haunted my olfactory senses and I cursed my retail restraint.

Then last week, while making a routine pit stop at Sephora, I spotted my little friend (the deodorant, not Amber) in one of those bins near the register. So I scooped her up and took her home.

There are no words to describe how enamored I am with this deodorant. I find myself raising my arms more often than necessary, just to get a whiff of my ambrosial armpits.

Now while $10 may seem a bit absurd for a 1 oz tube of deodorant, let me assure you that this is a sound investment. Not only is it the the best smelling deodorant I’ve ever tried, it’s the perfect size to stash in your purse (or clutch, even) for a mid-day refresh sesh.

And once you buy the deodorant, just try not to buy the perfume. Impossible.

Whatever Happened To Ultima II?

I might be showing my age with this question…but can I ask, whatever happened to Ultima II? Back in the day, that shiz was my jam. Ultima II was one of my first forays into prestige makeup and I was obsessed. I had this one brown matte lipstick (hey, it was the mid-nineties) that I wore down to a nub. And don’t get me started on their Glowtion Skin Brightening Moisturizer.

And when the line popped up at my local CVS, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Then it died.

A recent Google search turned up a ton of online retailers still hocking Ultima II cosmetics…which leaves me wondering if Revlon is still secretly producing these products, or if the online stores are selling old stock.

Ah, Ultima II…thanks for the memories.
