Apple Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter recently made fun of her mums morning routine and of course her vagina scented products.
I do like the fact that Goop and Apple’s mum, Gwyneth Paltrow saw the humour and shared Apple’s Tik Tok post about her mother’s routine. Of course the video is another way to publicise the products and is free advertising for Goop, so not all bad.
If I created a vagina scented candle I am sure it wouldn’t sell. I think people would tell me that it was silly, disgusting or a crazy idea. However, if you are Gwyneth Paltrow and you create a vagina scented candle, it sells in record time in fact in hours it was sold out!
According to Gwyneth she met with the head perfumer and she commented on the scents and said, “This smells like my vagina”, although she claims it was a joke, I wonder why she would say this?
The candle according to Goop’s website says has fragrances of “geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar”.
I am not sure about you, but these scents would have not made me say, “That smells like my vagina”, So it is a mystery why Gwyneth said this in the first place. Maybe she does have a geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar, scented vagina, and that is why the comment was made, if so, this is perfectly fine.
It has been said that this candle started as a joke. I however would love to created a joke that sealed out in a matter of hours.
I do agree that girls and women need to embrace their body and be proud of it, so Gwyneth is right about this.
Gwyneth Paltrow has been in the news recently about her sunscreen routine.
She said that she only adds the sunscreen to her nose and cheeks. Oh and also she said she doesn’t use the chemical sunblock, and only the natural options. Which are mineral sunblock’s that are made from zinc.
“And I’m not, you know, I’m not a sort of head-to-toe slatherer of sunscreen, but I like to put some kind of on my nose and the area where the sun really hits.”
Paltrow was asked by Vogue to give an overview of her every day skin care routine. As you can see from the above video she only dabs the mineral sunblock on her nose, and bits of her cheeks.
Personally I slather my suncream all over me to ensure that I will not get burnt. I am a fair skinned person and one that doesn’t take long to burn, I also live in Australia where we have lot of sun and therefore need to be protected from skin cancers. Plus adding an overall suncream to your routine that is not dabs here and there is essential to protect your skin and help your skin look younger too. The more exposure to the sun the more it affects how old you might look.
Forbes wrote an article saying that Paltrow’s advice on applying suncream is very dangerous, and I agree. If we all took her advice we would be red and sunburnt all the time, oh not to mention the possible cancers this might give us if we took Paltrow’s advice.
Paltrow only applies suncream “where the sun really hits”. When you are out in the sun, you can bet that the sun will get all of you if your skin is exposed. So just saying that you will add the suncream to where you think the sun will get you is a silly idea. You need total coverage….I doubt you will be able to dodge the sun to not get burnt with the other areas that didn’t get any dabs of suncream!
Maybe you can easily spot a Goop fan if they are out in the sunshine. They will jump away from the sunshine or race to the shade. This will be a clear sign that they have only dabbed their face and body with where they think the sun will get them. However, in reality they will come home with weird marks on their face and body due to the speckled design left from the sunblock.
I don’t know about you, but for all the impressionable kids that follow celebrities saying this about applying suncream is just wrong. Kids need to know that they need to cover up in the sun and not just add the suncream to little bits of your body.
Let me know your thoughts.
Many are outraged at the advice that has been given by Paltrow about how she adds suncream to her body and face.
