Oh hello there inexpensive way to get clean, smell pretty, and moisturize my body too!
If you’re looking for the big three’s in a body wash check out Dove Go Fresh Body Wash and Dove Go Fresh Soap. The big three you say Muse? What’s that? Well you want something that multitasks right? Something to wash your skin with quickly in the AM plus something that smells pretty and makes YOU smell pretty, and finally something that isn’t tough on your skin and offers a nice moisturizing finish.
Dove Go Fresh Burst Body Wash in Nectarine and White Ginger is the perfect beauty budget shower wash option. This sweet, tart citrus smelling shower gel has a nice foaming lather that moisturizes skin and leaves you smelling lovely. The formula is a gel wash which makes the Muse sing in the shower. The Dove Go Fresh Burst Soap is just as a nice and perfect for layering up with the wash, get yourself doubly clean!
Btw did you hear about the Gossip Girl: Real NYC Stories Revealed that’s sponsored by Dove Go Fresh? I heart Gossip so damn much. I haven’t watched yet but Gossip Girl star Jessica Szhor (Vanessa) is promoting the new program to celebrate the launch of Dove Go Fresh Burst Body Wash.
The video series gives Gossip Girl fans a glimpse into the real lives of four young women who live in the same Manhattan hotbed as the Gossip Girl characters. Basically it’s the story about their life, career, love interests, family, and friends. Sounds like MTV Real World starring Manhattan’s elite. I can barely tolerate B and S sometimes imagine having to watch real life socialites in their everyday lives? I’m unsure if I’m excited or scared! Count me curious though! I’ll give my thoughts after I viewed the videos! Anyone watch ’em yet? Tell me the deets!

You can Dove Go Fresh Burst Body Wash and Dove Go Fresh Burst Soap at your local drugstore.
The Sephora Catalog Summer 2009 should be wingin’ it’s way to your mail box soon, if it hasn’t already. It’s considerably smaller than years past but quite nice none the less.
I’m not particularly excited about the items in the catalog but I do so admit I’m thrilled with the theme which is entitled Fantasea. I’m partial to mermaids and the mysteries the ocean holds so this is right up my alley. With plenty of aquatic eye looks and really great model images I was simply enthralled with the catalog although as I mentioned there was nothing makeup wise that caught my attention in a major way.
Without further babble from me check out some of the pictures I snapped of the catalog!
Well done Sephora, the Muse loves it! With the economy slowly, very slowly on the up rise Sephora managed to create quite a nice little catalog for Summer ’09. I do so look forward to seeing the updates on the website soonish plus any videos or tutorials they might be generous enough to share with us, as the Muse always wanted to be a mermaid when she grew up!
What do you think?
Tell the Muse!
The Muse is blessed with so many incredible friends in her life but she does so wish she had more that were into makeup that way she could debate MAC Makeup Remover Wipes.
The Muse freaking loves the topic of these wipes. She adores people that go on and on about how wonderful they are, mind you the Muse thinks they are pretty special too but….
It irritates the holy hell out of me that people say these bloody things take it ALL off. But…but…but how? I love them with a passion. They don’t dry my skin out, smell amazing, make my skin feel moisturized, and remove my makeup….
They do a crap job on waterproof mascara. So technically speaking they do not get it all off yet many a fan will insist they remove EVERYTHING.
Why jebus why!
I’ve honestly never had any success getting off waterproof mascara with these. I even seen one very popular youTuber say they took of MAC Liquidlast….she must be using a different wipe than I am or she’s on crack…no freaking way are these doing that unless I scrub my eye with it like it’s a brillo pad.
That’s my two dollar rant of the day.
Love ’em, just wish they’d do a better job with waterproof mascara and wish everyone who says they take off everything wouldn’t say that.
But you can say whatever you like in my comment box.
What do you think of these wipes?
It’s ok the Muse will still love you long time if you say they take off waterproof mascara…although it might be a tiny bit harder to do so after you admit that but love you she will.
An unusual mix of gold, bronze, and smoky black and gray make up Gosh Cosmetics Golden Glamour Summer Collection.
The Muse can get on board with gold but she’s not sure she’s convinced on black?
Gosh Cosmetics paired up two rather gorgeous trios for it’s Summer staple look one of which is a stunning golden, bronze affair where as the other is a black and gray trio for a smoky eye look.
The idea of wearing a smoky eye out in the Summer does puzzle a Muse but hey whatever floats your boat. The collection also includes a brand new Giant Sun Powder meant for all over application to get a kiss of the Summer’s glow!
The collection isn’t terribly big and most of it is made up of items already found within the catalog but none the less I’m liking the promo image at the very least.
Do share what you think!
It’s kinda sorta difficult to drum up excitement when it comes to haircare but I do so admit that Aveda recently captured my attention with it’s new collection!
As Summer quickly approaches, better still as my vacation quickly approaches (June 1st) it’s always a good time to think about good ways to get hair in tip top shape. The heat, the beach, and the pool are all harsh elements on our hair. Aveda Sun Care is a line developed to protect hair and help defend it against the Summer elements that may be fun but turn everyday into a bad hair day.
The Muse is either easy to excite or she’s just digging the entire Aveda Suncare line. One thing I’m very impressed with is the lack of build up (hey, anything that’s meant to cleanse the hair of chlorine shouldn’t cause build up right?) and the rather interesting scent of all three products. All the products are an interesting blend of wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils, green tea extra, organic sunflower seed oil, shea butter, coconut, palm oils, and tamanu. The Muse admits she
hasn’t a clue what tamanu is but she bets anything in the world it’s damn important stuff. The scent might not be for everyone but I LOVE it. It’s very organic smelling. Not really floral not really green and def not fresh but it’s a little green and a touch of fruit and a tad bit of floral. It’s interesting, trust me.
I’m impressed with all three of the products I tried out but I’m the biggest fan of the Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil. This leave in spray protects hair against harmful sun rays. Ok, so no offense but if I’m being honest I just dig how it makes my hair feel soft and bouncy after application and I’m totally digging on how it makes my hair smell. As far as protecting the locks from the sun….well let’s just say I don’t see the point but it’s on my to buy list again because props to a cool spray that makes my hair smell awesome and feel nice! Likey!
Lucky me I went swimming today so I took full advantage of seeing how Aveda Hair and Body Cleanser (Yes! Multitasking goodness! Score!) and Aveda After-Sun Hair Masque worked. I love, love how well this hair and body cleanser performs. It’s ideal for toting with me on my trip next month as it works as a shower gel and a shampoo. It smells lovely and does a fine job of rinsing my hair clean after a swim and making it nice and fluffy, very smooth, and clean feeling. It’s gentle enough that it’s not causing any build up simply aiding in removing chlorine or salt (if you’ve been to the beach) plus product build up in general! Loves this stuff! Awesome in a bottle. The After-Sun Masque is just as good at restoring my hair to a nice moisturized finish. This is a tad heavy so I do have to be careful it doesn’t load my hair down with silicons but all in all it conditions very well and makes my hair nice and soft plus it’s a great follow up after using Aveda Hair and Body Cleanser.
I generally liked these alot and I’m Muse Approving them for purchase as they were quite worth checking out. Pretty nice to stash away in your luggage during travel if you’re going to be at the beach or pool side a whole lot (or in the sun). I have a pool so I’m in it everyday, sometimes twice a day, when the weather is warm so anything that rids my hair of chlorine and keeps it from damage is always a plus in my book!
