Avalon Organics Lemon Clarifying Shampoo

avalon organics lemon clarifying shampoo

I started to write: "I already reviewed this on LP," before realizing I'd failed to actually write the review. Instead I'd uploaded the above image, and had likely reviewed it elsewhere on the site.

Today I repurchased this, again, and that's saying a lot. I'm a "shampoo whore," albeit reformed. I? I had a bottle of Nature's Gate Organics Asian Pear and Red Tea shampoo in my hand at the checkout line only just today. What can I say? It smelled good? Came in a snazzy reddish opaque bottle? I really have no excuse. When the people ahead of me in line began disputing a coupon, I returned to the shelf and picked up trusty Avalon Organics Lemon instead.

I have tried Nature's Gate Organics shampoos before, back when they came in clear bottles. Eh. Not bad, but not as good as Avalon.

Also visited a Super Target today, to pick up some last-minute school stuff for my son. The place was a madhouse, but oddly a refined madhouse. Very little rudeness. Little worth buying, either, beyond odds and ends, basics.

I recalled when I would have spent at least an hour perusing the clothing section, digging through, looking for...oh, I'd bought this really cool, made in India white cotton top there. A simple design, spaghetti straps, double layer of fine cotton, a natty drawstring, even. I've always loved Indian textiles. eye skimmed the vast section, and everything there screamed, "Go ahead and buy me, and throw me out within the year." A true cheapskate won't buy. A $20 top that lasts one year, is more expensive than a $40 top that lasts three years--or even a $40 top that lasts two years, given your shopping time, gas, wear and tear on the car, et cetera.

Oh well, that's my day in beauty and fashion! lol
