See? What did I tell you! Philosophy has introduced several 3 in 1 Shower Gels and they look quite interesting! My love affair with Philosophy has ended since discovering Bath and Body Works Temptation line but sometimes I’m tempted to cheat on occasion and in this case I may very well be! Many of the scents have been introduced before but these are in new clothes, larger sizes (24oz almost twice the size of the regular line), and about $4 each more on top of the normal $16 price tag!
A new year means a new Holiday Shower Gel from Philosophy!
Eggnog is gone but Sugar Plum Fairy and Candy Cane are back and now we also get a brand new Shower Gel in a Cranberry Scent!
Plus it’s 24oz instead of the normal 16oz size for $20!
If this new size is anything to go by expect to see a change in Philosophy’s clothes soon and a sale maybe?! Sephora is already discounting a few Philosophy products which can only mean a new size and a new style of bottle!
Here’s an inexpensive gloss I actually LOVE! It’s so difficult to find a cheap gloss that’s actually good but mark Glossblossom wins both the inexpensive and great award!
The gloss itself is actually clear and it basically makes the same promise as Smashbox’s O-Glow in that it’ll transform into your perfect pink upon application!
I personally don’t find it very pigmented and on my lips it mostly looks clear not pink however don’t let that change your mind it’s actually quite good!
You might remember when I did my review on Bourjois Paris Eau de Gloss if not click here and read! The reason I’m bringing up Eau de Gloss is because Glossblossom is similar in texture. The base of the gloss is quite like water and it’s super slick and super glossy minus the tacky, stickiness of other glosses I’ve tried. It basically feels like I’m spreading water on my lips, it’s very moisturizing! When I have this on I feel like I have nothing on which for me is a plus as I hate my lips to feel all gross and sticky and most glosses always make me feel that way!
I love this over lipstick, lipstains, or to wear by itself. It’s quite long wearing too! I know some people had mentioned they had experienced problems with Eau de Gloss in that it slid off and wasn’t as long wearing as it promised however I find Glossblossom lasts a good 4-5 hours (minus drinking of course) before it’s gone completely! It also has a very subtle, delightful little fruit flavor to it (nothing overpowering! Just a little hint of fruit).
This is a total favorite item of mine and I have these little tubes stuffed in my desk draw and purse for touch ups!
Plus it’s cheap as day old chips at $6 (but you can get it cheaper! I get mine off of E-bay for $3.50-$3.99).
So did anyone go to the Lush NA online chat party last night (No idea what I’m talking about? Click here for details!)? Sadly, I was unable to attend as I got home really, really, really late after a longggggggggggggggggg day at broker meetings! Snore, Yawn, Boring!
I wish I could say that I had even a second to log in and partake but sadly it was a no go for me!
I did wander over to the website and it appears nothing of great interested was offered aside from Snowcake Solid Perfume. Other then that nothing really, super special or limited got made!
Did you attend? Did you order? Tell the Muse!
If you missed out like me here’s a break down of what was offered (and appears to still be available for purchase):
Ol’ Blue Skies Shower Gel is back (If you’re new to Lush this was a shower gel that was introduced last year for Christmas last year and when the new Christmas goodies were released for this year’s Holiday Season, Ol’ Blue Skies, was not part of the line up! So…here it is if you want it but I personally suggest steering clear unless you adore deep earthy scents!)!
I’m not excited. It has patchouli in it which means it smells like just turned dirt. I’ll skip.
Snowcake Solid Perfume $11.95 (or FREE! Use Code SCENTME to get it Free if you spend $65 or more on your Lush order)
Snowcake Solid Perfume wahooo! The perfume solids were introduced way before the Holiday goodies this year so when the Holiday releases popped up the only solid that was “holiday” themed was Champagne Snow Showers! Much to my dismay and fans everywhere we wondered what could have happened to the idea of having a Snowcake Solid Perfume! Well…here it be ladies!
I was faced with the dilemma of ordering from Lush from the US this morning as Lush UK does not carry Snowcake Solid Perfume! It was released special for the party!
If you adore smelling dirt with a bit of oranges thrown in this would be a great pack for you!
You’ll get Ol’ Blue Skies Shower Gel, Blue Skies and Fluffy Clouds Bubble Bar, Karma Bubble Bar, and Karma Soap! Ooooo all the Muse’s favorites! NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Snowcake Pack $34.95USD
I don’t have to remind you how much I love Snowcake we’ve already been through it enough already right? In honor of the chat party a lovely pack was made up which consists of all good things Snowcake scented! You’ll get Snowcake Solid Perfume, Lush Pud Bath Bomb, Smitten Handcream, and a chunk of Snowcake Soap! Sweet!
