In my hotel bathroom this morning, I see that I have been supplied with a white tea aloe conditioner for my hair. Who needs to put white tea and aloe in their hair? Sleepy burn victims?

In cosmetics, the new practice seems to be to name products after a pairing of plants: Lemon lavender soap, [...]
