Every Thursday Rachael Robbins brings you the best of her DD’s!

This week I decided to do something out of character. So I planted my own planters instead of having them do it for me at the nursery. It felt great! Getting my hands (well, gloves) into the soil and making nice with nature. I was so proud of my botanical accomplishments that I decided to try more things out of character! So I rented a U-Haul truck for a friend in need and drove it all the way into Manhattan thru the Lincoln tunnel, to help him move. OK, he’s flipping gorgeous, a sweetheart, and on a soap opera, which made the favor a little easier to do. But none the less I did it. I also…pumped my own gas! Took the bus (for 4 blocks)! Went to a hot sushi joint in sweat pants! All liberating!

As I strolled my little liberated ass down the aisles of Duane Reade, looking for another great DD I did something else I never do. I tried an affordable product that obviously ripped off an expensive one. Normally I like my DD’s to be their own individual product that happens to be great and affordable but comparable to some higher end product. I don’t like to try things that are cheap versions of something you’d find at Sephora. But what the hell! I was on a roll!

So I picked up 24.7 Skincare Daily Purifying Facial Scrub and gave it a whirl. And guess what??!! Yup, I really like it! I am a huge fan of Freeze 24/7 Plump Lips. So, you can see my annoyance at the obvious rip off! But let me tell you. This face scrub is really delightful! It’s got a minty tingly effect that feels really refreshing. It made my skin feel soft and smooth. I actually had a slight glow going on after my tingly scrub!

Here’s what the company says about the product:

“24.7 Skincare Daily Purifying Facial Scrub gently renews and resurfaces, while re-hydrating and evening-out skin tone. Reduces the appearance of unsightly age spots, discoloration and puts skin in balance. Your skin will look and feel fresh, healthy and glowing, instantly. And with continued use, it will look better each day. It’s serious skin pampering for gorgeous, glowing results. Instantly: smoothes skin’s surface, exfoliates skin, reveals glowing skin, purifies, cleanses, detoxifies and refreshes skin. Dermatologist tested, allergy tested, clinically tested. Perfect for: skin fatigue or dullness; dry or flaky skin; fine lines and wrinkles; uneven skin tone; crow’s feet; furrowed brows and forehead creases”

I’m not sure if it will deliver on all those promises, but I can tell you that this is a great morning face scrub, to wake up your skin and mood! It’s also unisex, so your hubby can indulge too!

Any other 24/7 DD version fans?
