Ok, wait, Origins Gloomaway is back by popular demand? That’s what it says on the Origins site but I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve never even heard of it and thought it was a brand new collection.
Thank gawd I’m hearing about it now because it’s awesomezzzzzzzz! FirePower!
Click it for a peep at Origins Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Souffle!
So far I’ve only tried out Origins Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Souffle but obviously I need to get to Origins quick and snap up the rest of this fine collection! Loves it!
Origins believes everyone needs a pick me up now and again and here you go products to make the gloom go away! I mean seriously who doesn’t want products to liven up things and make the day seem brighter? What better blend than grapefruit, orange and mint to get things going when it’s all about gloom sometimes.
Origins Gloomaway is the perfect blend of grapefruit, sweet orange, and mint. Honestly, I don’t get the mint but damn straight the grapefruit and orange is in there and cocktail’ed into a fruity, sweet candy-like finish that’s sure to please anyone who enjoys bright, sunny blends. The blend starts off with a tart almost sour note of grapefruit but blends into a candy-ish scent due to the sweet orange. A hint of mint can be detected for those with a stronger sense of smell but for the most part it’s ever so subtle. It’s difficult to explain but it’s unique that’s for sure and very, very pleasing. I think for the most part the combination of grapefruit and orange makes for a very sweet linger but dominant you’ll get alot of orange. Anyway, the point is it’s delightful and unique! Loves it!
Origins Gloomaway Body Souffle comes housed in this interesting little container. The bottom portion unscrews and you lift out the secondary container which has the moisturizer housed in it. For those of us liable to lose things this could be a problem as for me I just dig the packaging, dunno why but packaging tends to make me happy.
The souffle is heavily scented so it’ll linger quite long once applied on skin. It’s highly moisturizing and a luxurious cream, no skimping on this formula. It’s ideal for knees, elbows, and legs as it offers a heavy dose of moisture and leaves behind a beautiful blend or grapefruit and orange.
If anything the souffle wet my appetite to try more of the collection. Other items releasing in the collection are as follows:
Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Mist ($25) This I have to have!
Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Wash & Bubble Bath ($21)
Gloomaway Grapefruit Body-Buffing Cleanser ($20)
Gloomaway Grapefruit Bath Bar ($13) Wants it!
For fun I also have a pack of the Origins Gloomaway Grapefruit Gumballs, yay chewable optimism for chasing away gloom and doom! They taste like tasty grapefruit and orange!
Overall, I’m quite excited to explore this collection further. I tend not to get too excited about Bath and Body items outside of Lush but this had me at first sniff. Loving it. It’s worthy of a sniff at your local Origins counter. But be warned you might become as addicted as I am.
Now I’m busy wishing for a bad day so I can chase it away with Gloomaway!
The Muse is terribly childish, believe me she knows this, but today when L’Oreal Extra Gentle 2-in-1 Buck’s Berrydactyl Shampoo popped in my mailbox I got terribly excited. As you know I’m a fond fan of detoxing my locks with baby shampoo but for the most part I was just excited about the art of the bottle featuring Buck from the new Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs film in theaters July 1st.
I’m a big kid at heart!
Along with Buck’s Berrydactyl Shampoo, L’Oreal is also releasing Ellie’s Orangesaurus, Diego’s Man Eating Melon, and Sid’s Pineapple Shampoo. Yes, I want to collect all the scents…particularly the orange and pineapple!
A while ago I wrote an article about clarifying your hair with kid’s and baby shampoo you can see that article here. Buck will aid me in getting my hair squeaky clean with a bit of a berry scent to go with it plus he’s cheap as day old chips with a price tag of $2.99 or less. Likey.
Ok, end childish post.

I’ve never been much for nude makeup until I got on board with many of Bobbi Brown’s palettes. Last year with the release of the Bobbi Brown Shimmering Nudes Palette the Muse experienced neutral, nude shades like she’s never done before and loved it too!
Fall comes early this year when Bobbi introduces her new Fall Nudes Collection in July.
Check it out below!
This July, Bobbi Brown Fall Nudes Collection launches with a new limited edition eye palette that features eye shadow duos in a sophisticated and flattering selection of shades and finishes. The shadow duos come in customizable three pan palettes which can be filled with your choice of color options and items.
Also introduced is a brand new shade of Bobbi’s popular Shimmer Brick in Nude Shimmer which features pink, gold, bronze, beige, and caramel.
The collection also includes gel liner and creamy lip color to compliment the Bobbi Brown Nude Palette and Bobbi Brown Nude Shimmer Brick.
All the items will be available from Bobbi’s site and at counters starting in July.
As I mentioned I’m not one for nudes but Bobbi has a knack for making nudes exciting and different. I look forward to seeing the shimmer brick and eye palette in person.
The Muse is excited to hear that Tarte has launched it’s own YouTube Channel. The channel will feature Tarte makeup artists and members of the executive team giving tutorials.
