Last year, my best friend and I were Ginger and Mary Anne for Halloween.

She is obsessed with all things ginger – characters with that name, pink food items that come with sushi, ginger snap cookies. Me, not so much. It’s not that I dislike it, it’s just that ginger vs. chocolate, chocolate is going to win every time.

We may have finally found a place to coexist peacefully.

I’m loving the scent of Pangea’s Nigerian Ginger, Sweet Lavender & Thyme Facial Cream – it’s super-hydrating and has no harmful chemicals, but  is also rich in healthy essential fatty acids (EFAs). like Argan, Evening Primrose, Pumpkin Seed, and Shea Butter. These all help to hydrate the skin, and create a vitamin-like anti-aging effect.

But aside from being hydrating and nourishing, I was excited to see the flavor was actually quite delightful! So, maybe I can give ginger another shot. Though, still, it’s certainly not a chocolate cookie.
