For many years, my friends have counted on me to keep them up to date on the latest and greatest beauty-related products. I’m thrilled to be able to give them the scoop on what works, what doesn’t work and where the industry is headed next. My hobby is fun, but it can get quite expensive at times.
Last Valentine’s Day, my girlfriend received a “cashmere like” robe from her fiancé. I have tons of robes. No big deal, right?
WRONG! Apparently, her robe is the best robe in the world and not because she says so, but because Oprah (she listed it as one of her favorites items from 2005) and the women from The View say so. A year later, she’s still lounging in the lap of luxury and me – I’m still pouting about it.
This is no ordinary robe. It’s unbelievably soft. It doesn’t wrinkle, pill, or shrink. It’s 100% washable and dryable. Her robe has been through the wringer and still, it appears to be just as durable and absorbent and soft and fluffy as the day she first wore it. I’ve stolen it from her twice. I just didn’t believe what she was telling me. Unfortunately, she was right. Her Kashwere Robe was better than chocolate.
So you have to be wondering, why don’t I just go out and get it? First, I had difficulty finding it. H2O tends to offer this robe in cycles. Second, once it was available, I just couldn’t bring myself to pay $120. Sure, I might spend that much on a miracle creme from La Mer, but on a bath robe? I didn’t know how I would justify this to my husband. It’s taken me years to explain miracle crèmes. I haven’t even scratched the surface on bath robes.
So now it’s almost Valentine’s Day and H2O has released a pink version of the very same robe. It’s offered in a variety of sizes and it sure makes more sense than a dozen of long-stemmed roses, right?
