[NYC - Murray Hill] Tipsy Scoop Revisit - Mango Margarita Sorbet (dairy free) and Strawberry Rhubarb Bourbon

 My boyfriend and I visited Tipsy Scoop, too, after Marissa and I made our initial trip (read about that here).

Since he likes the more fruity flavors and sorbets and I like deeper more savory flavors, we did a bit of a compromise. We ordered the Mango Margarita Sorbet (top) and the Strawberry Rhubarb Bourbon (bottom).

My theory from the first time about why the texture was a bit off may hold true. The Strawberry Rhubarb Bourbon flavor was very mushy, as you can see in the picture. The Mango Margarita Sorbet was slightly more frozen.

The Mango Margarita Sorbet was great. As I wrote in my Buddha Taco Bar post, his gauge of alcohol products is whether or not it tastes like rubbing alcohol and whether or not he becomes red. His review was quite positive because he loves mango sorbet and could kind of taste the tequila, but it wasn't too much like rubbing alcohol. "This is the way we should always consume alcohol." I don't typically like the Mango Sorbets he gets from Trader Joe's because I think it tastes really chemically, not fake, but kind of like...chemicals. This one wasn't super chemically and the tequila flavor was kind of understated.

I'm actually kind of medium about strawberry rhubarb flavors, mainly because the rhubarb can either be just right or else quite off/stringy/sour, in my opinion. This one was actually quite nice. It wasn't too sweet, it was quite balanced actually. The bourbon was a little more forward in this scoop. I would definitely recommend this flavor if you're okay with the texture being a little soft and you like fruity, yet savory/smoky flavors.

Again, we chose a pretty good pair. They worked quite well together. The sorbet is great for the lactose sensitive among us, yours truly included.

They have some of the flavors out front and some in the back.

This is the menu with prices. There's also a seasonal flavor. You can also take some home with you if you really like it. Tipsy Scoop also partnered with Konery to make their cone bowls.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
