For Your Shower and Bath
The Muse is terribly obsessed with the Crabree & Evenlyn Distillations Collection. I recently reviewed the Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Revitalize Conditioning Body Lotion which was love at first application. Today I’ll be bringing you a review of the Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Soothing Body Lotion and Gentle Cream Body Wash.
Jump ahead for the deets!
The new Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations line up combines the benefits of 100% essential oils and natural ingredients to create a relaxing blend for both your skin and your senses. Each blend contains no parabens, no mineral oil, and absolutely no additives.
Although I’ve already tried out the Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Soothing Body Lotion that version was a revitalizing blend which contained tart lemons to wake this tired Muse up! The blend I’m currently loving is filled with relaxing lavender and rosewood essential oils which makes it the perfect sleepy time body lotion. The lotion absorbs on contact and melts into skin beautifully leaving behind a lovely herbal scent that’s soothing and healing to my dry skin. The scent is relaxing and quite comforting which makes it an ideal lotion to use just before bed. I’ll save my other lotion for early morning wake up calls!
This is my first time trying Crabtree & Evelyn Distillations Gentle Cream Body Wash. This too is scented with lavender and rosewood essential oils which makes it a perfect companion to layer with my body lotion. The formula is a creamy, dreamy moisturizing body wash that cleanses as it moisturizes my dull, dry skin. The lavender does a wonderful job of soothing my skin and locking in moisture and of course, it’s simply relaxing to breath in the scent while I shower!
I’m really enjoying this new collection and think it’s well worth checking out for yourself!

Scrub away rough elbows and knees with a great beauty budget fine! liiv botanicals Revitalizing Body Scrub from Avon is a brand new scrub that’ll help get your rough bits back into silky soft form in a snap!
Before I jump full into this review I have to say I’m a little itty bitty disappointed that liiv botanicals Revitalizing Body Scrub doesn’t have the awesome smell that liiv Botanicals Moisture Body Boosting Butter did! Darn it! I’m so addicted to the smell of that body butter that I was kinda hopeful the entire line would sport the same scent!
Aside from that minor rant I actually liked this body scrub plus it’s only $8.50 USD, hello scrubbie for less the Muse is your new best friend!
liiv botanicals Revitalizing Body Scrub is a thick foaming scrub that has plenty of scrubbing action to get rough body parts buffed and polished to a silky, smooth finish. The scrub smells fresh with hints of cucumber and botanicals. It cleanses while it scrubs leaving behind super soft, smooth moisturized skin.
I personally liked it alot as my skin is terribly dry right now but I don’t know if I recommend it for anyone with sensitive skin as it has a whole lot of scrubbing action going on so it could be a bit too much for some.
All in all if you’re keeping a tight budget at the moment this is a great wallet-friendly purchase for getting your dry Winter skin ready for the upcoming warmer weather!

Oh woe is the Muse. She resigned herself to not ordering anything from the Lush Valentine’s Day selection this year but than she seen this year’s Lush UK Valentine’s Day offerings and she’s finding it difficult to resist it’s evil lure!
Jump ahead to read more about Lush UK Valentine’s Day 2009.
I’ve already discussed the Lush NA Valentine’s Day releases and although they looked lovely I had decided I really didn’t any of it. I did think that Lush UK would stick to the same round up but noooooooo they had to go and do some items that are exclusive to their side of the pond that I’m so lemming now!
Lately the release after release of B fragrances in Lush soap format is absolutely thrilling to me. First Cocktail, followed by Keep It Fluffy, and now beautiful Love! Oh love, sweet love!
Love is one of my favorite scents from B Never so I’m thrilled they made it into a soap! Yay!
If you love girlish scents you’ll really enjoy a heart shaped, limited edition Mmmmm Melting Marshmallow Moments! Softens up your bath water and offers extra moisturizing and beautiful scent. Gather up a SWALK and spoil yourself!

It’s perfectly ok to indulge every once and a while. It’s particularly nice when we can give into temptation for sweets minus the calories!

Enjoy a spa-like experience when you drop a Me! Bath Ice Cream Bath Bomb into your tube! Spoil yourself rotten with a Me! Bath Ice Cream that bubbles happily away in your bathtub releasing minerals and aromatic oils while you relax.
I tried Me! Bath Ice Cream in Gotta Have It Pomegranate which is a happy, sweet, tart, and tangy blend. The bomb kicks up quite a fizz in the tub and creates a softly scented bath with plenty of moisturizing benefits so as you bathe your skin becomes soft and silky smooth. Gotta Have It Pomegranate is a bright pink affair that’s shaped like your favorite scoop of Strawberry Ice Cream and smells amazing but don’t give into temptation and eat it!

The Muse insists.
Ok, ok so the Grinch (or in this case the Muse) that Stole Valentine’s Day says that V-Day is such a terribly overrated holiday! Seriously, do we need one day of the year to tell people we love them?
But…I admit…I kinda dig V-day beauty! I secretly love when Sephora, Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, Avon, Etc…release little bits of beauty fun that’s themed for Valentine’s Day. I can’t deny I love the cute factor.
Taking into consideration the economy is absolutely depressing as hell I think we all need a little budget beauty Valentine joy to put a little bit of a smile on our face.
