"Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty. There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail."

I always seem to fall prey to enticingly packaged wonder-goops in the Spring and Fall...weakened, as I am at those times, by the effects of harsh winter winds or the sneaky UV rays which managed to get past my layers of SPF...there's a general feeling in my subconscious that, with the application of wonder-goop X, some of the damage could be reversed.

A good portion of this is, of course, in the mind...but, as long as the mind stays on the reasonably priced cliffs and doesn't take a nose-dive into the abyss of $200 min-pots of goop...it's a relatively harmless pastime that does, on occasion, show results.

This season's w-g is Kiehl's Ltd. Edition Açaí Damage-Protecting Toning Mist. Acai...aka the Brazilian "super berry"...aka one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants...aka an ingredient that I don't enjoy the taste of (despite the best attempts of companies who seem to be adding it to every food or beverage with the word 'health' in the title) but am more than willing to spritz on my face. According to the blurb, the mist will (with daily use) help protect cells from the destructive effects of oxidation, improve the look of radiance and rejuvenation to skin, tighten pores, and clarify and balance skin’s texture.

While I haven't been using it long enough to substantiate any of these claims I can say that it smells lovely...causes the skin to tingle in a most satisfying manner...and scratches my wonder-goop itch for this season.
