Listen, I know what you’re thinking: Karissa, why are you reviewing a product from a brand that is completely defunct? And I would reply that yes, it is kind of silly to be doing that since you as a consumer can no longer purchase it.

I want to make sure that even if a product is no longer available for purchase that its original purpose of being purchased for review is satisfied.
I hope that even if you can’t buy some of the products I review, you’re still entertained or learning something!
