haus of gloi ruth
Fresh strawberry, green patchouli, rose geranium and crushed violet leaf.
Oh, Ruth. Usually, I save my favorite things for last - but not here. Oh no. I just kept putting Ruth off, because honestly? I didn't want to smell it again. But now her time has come, so let's do this thing.
In the imp, Ruth smells vaguely like strawberries and something musty and rotten, like flowers that have been sitting around for too long and have started to get soft and mushy. On skin it's less rotten-smelling, and now I'm getting strawberry and loads of green patchouli, which I really don't like. I don't think I've ever smelled it before, but it's just... nope. Not for me.
This one's a scrubber. OUT, OUT DAMN SPOT.
Would I buy it again? NO. Oh god, no. I'm sure this is either a skin chemistry issue or a personal preference one, since I've seen a few other reviews of Ruth that are rather positive. It just really, really does not work on me.
