“A rose is a rose is a rose…” I bet you have heard that before. The sentence was written by Gertrude Stein as part of her poems.
It is often interpreted as meaning “things are what they are”, a statement of the law of identity. In Stein’s view, the sentence expresses the fact that simply using the name of a thing already invokes the imagery and emotions associated with it.
But I bet you are not here for an excurse in poetry (though it is a fascinating topic!). You are here for beauty products, and I promise I am going to talk about one:
The pixi Rose Cream Cleanser *, which, as rightly observed by Mrs. Stein, instantly evokes a certain mental image by name. I for one expected it to be a rose scented cream cleanser.
Which it, spoiler here, isn´t.
