Splat! Shiseido Spf 30 Package Fail

There are some things the bf is particular about like not having any funky things in the sink or having every last drop of water wiped up around the kitchen, and then there is the mirror…

Technically it is my area so I rule. And what I say goes. Meaning I over ride what he wants.

Much like the tv remote which we have dubbed the “sceptre”.

When in the living room it is his sceptre.

In the bedroom it is my sceptre and we watch what I want.

One of those over rides is my make up vanity.

In the beginning of time-I told him I didn’t like the housekeeper to mess w my area.

I won’t say exactly why-but I just don’t like exposing my personal stuff to outsiders.

Kind of like not wearing bowling alley shoes.

Anyway. I know gross.

So I inherited my suggested replacement sunscreen for the reformulated Clinique super defense that he bought and did not like. Clinique changed their formula and reduced the Spf to 20 from 25. No big deal but they also do not offer it in a normal to dry formula anymore either.

The shiseido product is a light liquid but it is a little heavier than the clarins spf 40 I use which has a screw cap. The shieseido packaging snaps shut, which you would think would be pretty secure so the product wouldn’t seep out.

But that’s not how it works.

When you dispense the product, a well around the cap retains some of the fluid.

So when I snap the cap shut the product splatters all over the mirror.

At first I did not realize where the spots came from-but when I was cleaning up I noticed that the shiseido bottle had product running down the sides.

Now even when I consciously try to not splat,the faulty packaging makes me splat even when I am trying very hard not to.

He doesn’t say anything tho.

So all is right in the world.

And I still have my sceptre.


I could get into a rant about faulty packaging but Trish McEvoy kind of owns that territory.
