You know, how much I love long reviews, and sharing unnecessary information about everything and anything, so if you want a summary of this blog post, here it is. “When I heard about this, I thought it was sh**. Nope, I was very wrong. Buy it and go sh** with it. Your life will be different from now on”.
I am sure you are thinking that I lost my mind, but that is not that much of a secret anyway. I have been bothering my friends ever since I came back from Cosmoprof, and I am sure they are all tired of hearing about Poo Pourri by now, so I decided to bother you, my dear readers, instead.
I am a sceptic, especially when it comes to ridiculous claims we are used to seeing from various brands. I am certainly not a fan of gimmicky products. That is, until, I somehow get my hands on something which might seem very strange, and it changes my life. The Poo Pourri team at the expo has kindly handed me a bottle of unicorn magic, and have I known, what I am getting into, I would have probably been running away very fast. I already have a skincare and makeup addiction, I totally don't need another one, but I think, there is no turning back now.
Let's get something out of the way, it is relatively pricey, especially seeing, that you can't get it in Lithuania easy. On the other hand, I am not even through one third of the bottle yet, but I have ordered another one on Amazon already. That should totally say something.
You are probably wandering what it is, by this point. I don't want to say this, because it sounds way too demeaning, but that is the only way of putting it, it is basically a glorified air freshener, which you spray directly into a toilet bowl, it forms a layer of the film on the water, and instead of your toilet smelling like cow farms, it smells like field of flowers, or lemons, or lavender and vanilla, depending on which scent you prefer. And all of that, without any nasties you get from your usual air freshener. Even with the social media being a huge deal at the moment, and stereotypes that nobody, especially beauty bloggers, reads magazines anymore, I still like to buy them. Except, I don't have much time to read them, so after few weeks, they migrate to the loo. With the magic of Poo Pourri, I can comfortably read few articles without feeling the need to evacuate as soon as possible.
I have been to a family gathering the other weekend, and I joked about taking this with me, but I forgot. Oh my, did I regret that. I am sure you all know this uncomfortable situation of someone leaving the restroom and quietly whispering “if I were you, I would wait a minute or two?”. With the help of Poo Pourri, this could have been avoided, and your relatives' dignity would have been saved.
Sometimes I get really excited about interesting products, and start doubting myself, if I am being bias. I had a tiny sample of it from earlier, and gave that to my friend to try out. I asked her, if she tried it, and she was very blunt, “it works”, was her answer, so I am not making stuff up.
This is slightly different review from my usual ones, so please do let me know, what you think. Would you choose Poo Pourri over conventional air fresheners? I can't wait to hear your thoughts. And to wrap up, I am going to leave you with a very sarcastic, but nonetheless funny ad for the product.
