how smells can incite memories?

Like if you smell roasting cinnamon, no matter what month it is, you’ll think of the holidays.

When you smell coffee brewing, you think you’re in an airport. If you happen to spend your time at a restaurant that sells sushi, the smell of soy sauce can make you feel like you need to clear the table, or when it’s SUPER humid outside (much like it’s been the last few weeks) you immediately say, “it smells like Arkansas out here!” Just me? Ok, maybe just me on some of those examples, but you get what I’m saying.

I’m sure all of you have certain smells that make you think of a certain place or time in your life, and I realized a new one yesterday when I rekindled my relationship with KiwiFox products.

Backtracking a few months, I met Jenn from KiwiFox in February at an Oscar lounge I was covering. She offered me a few samples and I couldn’t get enough of the moisturizing cream, so I partnered with the brand to test their products either myself or with my friends and family and share my reviews.

Since then I moved, which included changing addresses (of course) so my precious green products didn’t get back to me until yesterday. Honestly, I was really excited to prep my face for sleeping last night with the moisturizer and as soon as I popped open the AquaSurge Age-Defying Moisturizer lid, I started laughing. My brain immediately put me back in my apartment in Culver City.

The first time I used the product I fell in love with the kiwi scent, and I was standing at the sink in Linda and my room, so after a few months being kiwi-less, my brain wanted to be back there. My face felt lighter and sunnier too – you know, beach flashbacks. And of course, my face feels smoother. I have yet to find a product that I like as much as this one! And the best part, included in my shipment was a little sample of the moisturizer, so my avid readers, whomever wants it, gets it.
