    Does glyceryl have to do with the part meaning it has both fats and oils? Thanks, Gio! Thanks for posting these ingredients posts even though they’re not the most popular. I’m certain that your fellow audience reads these still, just don’t comment. I often don’t comment on most posts I read. There just isn’t enough time in the day!
    Anyways, I feel like this is posted for me in a way (not to sound conceited) but because I’m the only commenter here hehe. Kind of like heading to the playground and being the only one there.

    Should I tell you what I got you from the 2 US-exclusive items you mentioned? So that way, you don’t have to buy similar items for Christmas. :] I won’t tell you any other item besides that.

      Janessa, yep, that’s right. :)

      You’re welcome. I’m glad you like these posts. You know, the lack of comments at first discouraged me and made me believe people didn’t care for these posts, but every now and then I get an email from someone saying how much they appreciate them. And when I do my yearly survey to know what people think about the blog (what they love, hate, would like to improve; the next survey will be in January by the way) and what type of posts are their favourites, this series always ranks very high.

      I guess people either don’t know what to add to the conversation or, like you said, don’t have the time to comment. I’m glad you do, though. It’s nice to see that ingredients posts get some comments too. And I could never think you are conceited! You are one of the nicest, most generous people I know. :)

      You’re a tease! I’m really curious now!
