Month of May: Lush Haul


The Comforter Bubble Bar $9.95

Blackcurrant absolute is extracted by solvent extraction from the buds of the blackcurrant bush. The fragrance is comforting and relaxing.

My thoughts: This smells delicious! I love the fact that you can use it multiple times and not just once like the bath bombs. I love to take baths something that I was interested in trying. If you are more of a shower person, then this is not recommended since you basically use this for your bath. I don't think it gives off as much bubbles as I thought it would have. The smell doesn't stick to your skin after you are done with the bath, which kind of bugs me because for this price it should!

Buffy Body Butter $22.95
During a trip to Brazil, product inventor Rowena was inspired by the beautiful women who rub a mixture of sand and suntan oil on their backsides to improve circulation and reduce cellulite. She came home, mixed together cocoa and shea butters (to soften and moisturize), ground rice, almonds and aduki beans (to exfoliate you to velvety perfection) and voila, Buffy was created. Buff yourself in the bath or shower (pay special attention to your backside), rinse and pat dry.

My thoughts: I LOVE THIS STUFF. Yes, it is really really expensive now that I look back at the price, but I think that it is worth it! How you use it is first you wet it and then scrub it on skin that is wet also (I would use it while I'm showering. The exfoliation could be a little rough, so if you have super sensitive skin you should ask to try a sample before you invest most in buying this. This bar not only exfoliates but it is SUPER moisturizing! It makes my skin nice and soft. The smell is nothing fabulous but I love the results!

MMM Melting Marshmellow Moment Bath Melt $7.95
Marshmallow powder comes from the marshmallow herb. When mixed with the hot water, the powder becomes a mucilage and softens the water.

My thoughts: This smells like heaven. I am almost even tempted to eat it. Unfortunately the smell doesn't stick on your skin after you bathe. The melt does make the water feel soft, but I am not sure it has any actual results on my skin. I may have to use this multiple times to conclude whether or not it makes my skin softer.

Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar $9.95

Strawberries contain both malic and citric acids, also known as fruit acids (AHAs). They are very calming on the skin.

My thoughts: I have used up one of these bars before and I love it. I love thick thick super moisturizing lotions. The smell is great and it stick on your skin and makes your skin super soft!

Bubble Gum lip scrub $8.95

Castor sugar is particularly fine-grained sugar, which dissolves in water very easily. It is used as a culinary ingredient, particularly in baking. We like to use it in our bath products.

My thoughts: I love the taste and smell of this product. And the great part is that you can eat it after you scrub your lips with it! All you do is simply rub this on your lips and rub your lips with one another, after a few seconds you can simply lick it off!

Ultra Balm $2.00
Due to jojoba oil's affinity with our own sebum, it is more readily absorbed and tolerated by the top layer of our skin. It is very light and moisturizing.

My thoughts: I am not too excited about the smell. I though it moisturized my lips ok. I don't think I was as impressed with this as I was hoping to be.

Samples Sand Stone Soap, Dream Cream, Sympathy Cream
