It seems to have become a bit of a trend for natural beauty companies to use an overwhelming excess of peppermint oil in their products recently. I just don’t understand why it’s necessary.
I genuinely don’t have a problem with the scent or taste of peppermint. I like it in gum, chocolate, and tea. However, when I’m doing my daily beauty routine or having a pampering session I don’t want to feel like my eyeballs have been slapped with a wet fish and then blasted by a leaf blower. I also have no desire to spend the day smelling of something my Gran used to pass of as sweets.
A challenge to all ethical (cruelty-free) beauty companies: If you believe you have a wonderful peppermint product then send it to me, to be reviewed on the Mcr Flick Chick blog. As always, I will be fair and honest with my trial and write up. I dare ya!
