QVC Philosophy Shower Gel Auto Delivery Special

QVC has it’s special Auto Delivery Special up and available for Philosophy Shower Gels! I actually took advantage of this last year and was very pleased with the service.

Basically you purchase a trio of 16oz Shower Gels for $32.48 USD ($38.70 with shipping which breaks down to $12.90 per a shower gel) and you can lock in the price for an auto delivery service. This basically means throughout the year you’ll receive three more shipments with three gels in each shipment for the same price!

It’s a fun service and is fitting with the season changes!

This is also a particularly nice deal as some of the scents are exclusive to QVC only so you’ll have shower gels not available from Philosophy, Sephora, or anywhere else other then QVC!

The shipments contain the following trios:

  • 1st shipment: Belgian waffles, blackberry sauce, fresh cream
  • 2nd shipment: orange chiffon, berries and cream, vanilla ice cream
  • 3rd shipment: caramel apple, spicy pumpkin muffin, chocolate
  • 4th shipment: carrot cake, red velvet cake, sweet creamy frosting

I’m very tempted to order these but I have so many shower gels to use it would be ridiculous to get more…Hmmm….

Want ‘em?

Hard Gay Coming to a Bento Near You!

You might already know I have a little obsession with bento art. This translates as me browsing Japanese blogs for good bento lunch ideas. I came across a rather awesome blog of amazing bento packed lunches! One in particular really had me laughing!

BEHOLD:

Hard Gay in your bento!

Do you love it?

Sincerely the resemblance is uncanny don’t you agree?

The cuppa tea I was sipping while scanning through this blog is now dripping happily down my monitor as when I seen Hard Gay shaking his thing in a bento box it was either laugh and choke or laugh and spray. I decided it was best to laugh and spray!

Ettusais Blush Review

My obsession with Ettusais continues with a review of these interesting little mousse blushes that I picked up!

I don’t like these but I won’t give them a bad review because they are actually great yet a bit too natural for me.

First of all the packaging is ultra cute and I believe that’s what sold me on these. They come in a tiny glass jar with a cute screw top! Awww! Packaging really sells me on a product and in this case I had to have these as they were so yummie looking!

A few US companies do a similar style blush such as Clinique’s Touch Blush. These have the feel of a silky mousse. It’s very light and airy! Application is a breeze as these blend on perfectly and sink into the skin practically on contact!

The color selections I got were a dark bronze peach, a cooler, lighter peach, and a natural pink. Here in lays part of my dislike of the blushes, they go on very sheer and give me a beautiful glow of color but it’s a bit too natural for me. I like blush that’s vibrant and these just give me more of a natural, I’m not wearing any blush flush.

All in all they are very cute and are interesting to use but I just can’t love them! They are looking for a new home icon wink If anyone is interested shoot me an e-mail!

Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cream Review

Skyn+Iceland+Pure+Cloud+Cream

Thanks to the Total Beauty Network I was able to lay my hands on the posh, pricey Pure Cloud Cream from Skyn Iceland.

I was really looking forward to trying this out and possibly doing cartwheels around the room when I heard I would get a chance to test it out! I heard big time rave reviews about not only the Pure Cloud Cream but also all of the Skyn Iceland line!

Well…

I’m sad.

I have to give this a thumbs down sadly. For one thing the price of $75 for 1.7oz scares me slightly. I really shouldn’t say that as my regular moisturizer costs $85.45 for 1.5oz but at least it works amazingly well!

Maybe I didn’t get the benefit of it since it’s recommend for super sensitive skin types where as I’m more of a dry type during the winter. It promises to restore skin from intense weather conditions but I really wasn’t seeing much of a difference. I faced the elements for the time I was sampling it (rain, sleet, snow) and my skin came out without much change.

The formula is very thick which got me super excited as I thought it would be excellent nourishment for my dry, patchy skin. After using this for almost two weeks my skin is actually missing my old moisturizer!

It didn’t create any problems for me, it didn’t cause dry skin, or oily skin or any other such problems however it just didn’t feel like it was doing anything for my skin where as with my regular moisturizer I can feel and see it working. My face looks fresher, less dull, and moist when I use my regular brand.

At the very least for $75 bucks I was hoping I’d see some change in my face! From dull to glow? Nope. Nothing.

I can’t recommend this one for purchase but I am curious about the rest of the line!

Got this?

Love it?

Want it?

Tell the Muse all about it!
