For Your Shower and Bath

Bath and Body Works Vanilla Ice Cream and Whipped Delight

Two new Bath and Body Works Temptation items have popped up on the website! The first of which is entitled Vanilla Ice Cream and it’s not a three in one shower gel this time icon wink It’s a body spray! This is the first time we are seeing any of the Temptation line in the body spray format. This could be good news for the Temptation line!

Reviews on the site are saying that this surprising little body spray isn’t all about Vanilla Ice Cream. It’s is, however, about the entire sundae! Chocolate sauce, ice cream, nuts, cherry, and more await in you in this yummie spray!

If that wasn’t enough you can also slather on some of the new Whipped Delight Shimmer Body Mousse to complete the entire decadent desert sensation!

Both items are up and available at Bath and Body Works site but I am unsure when they’ll be sold in stores. Keep your eyes peeled I imagine it won’t be long before you’ll see these popping up in stores.

Vanilla Ice Cream Body Spray is $8 and Whipped Delight Shimmer Mousse is $12.

The Muse wants to spray herself with Vanilla Ice Cream and top it all off with some Whipped Delight! She’ll most definately be ordering both for her very own!

Bath and Body Works Scented Gift Card

Sometimes it’s really difficult to firgure out what to get a special friend in your life or family member and during those hard times I normally reach for a gift card for them!

I think gift cards are brilliant gifts especially when you’re finding it really hard to pick something out that you’ll think they’ll love!

This year Bath and Body Works offers a Twisted Peppermint Scented Gift Card for purchase!

How cool is this?

Spooky Time at Lush Cosmetics

Lush Cosmetics is getting into the spirit of Halloween and is offering a Limited Edition Shower Gel to haunt your shower this season! They have fittingly named it Ghost.

ghost interest

Ghost supposedly has a floral, lily of the valley scent. Count the Muse as being intrigued about the scent and wanting a bottle. I’m not normally one for floral scents but I’m curious.

Prices are not set yet and this is available via North America Mail Order only I believe. If you want to nab a bottle head on over to the following link and fill out your information to be alerted when it’ll be available for purchase!

Hopefully we don’t all love it because it is limited edition so when it’s gone, sadly it’s gone (either that or this is a gimmick to get us all to buy 10 bottles each and drown ourselves in a shower gel we might not even like the smell of).

I wonder if it glows in the dark…hmmm…

Basin: A Cheap Alternative to Lush

Picture+129

As much as the Muse loves Lush she admits that each year the price raise on bath goodies is a bit extreme. She recalls a time when she could find a bath bomb from Lush for a small chunk of change. Sadly, that’s no longer the case. I only order my Lush from the UK and it’s quite cheaper compared to the US site but prices do lean towards a bit much at times.

Good news ahead!

The Muse has found an interesting little shop entitled Basin! Basin offers an array of cheaper imitation Lush products for a fraction of the cost.

The Muse must admit that many of the products are a bit too close to the names and ideas of Lush however these are interesting to sneak a little peek at!

I’ve only purchased soap from the company so far and must say I’m quite pleased. The soaps are too cute for mere words!

Take a look for yourself:

From looking at the site it appears that the actual store has a wider selection of soaps than they do online!

They also carry a huge array of Bath Bombs, Shampoo Bars, and other bath and body goodies for the masses!

Many of the items, as I mentioned previously, are a bit to close for comfort in design, scent, and idea to Lush items!

Comparing Basin to Lush:

Basin’s Butter
Sensuous, Invigorating, Exotic–This moisturizing Bubbler has a velvety vanilla and coco-butter fragrance that’s sure to make you swoon. Reminiscent of a tropical breeze off an island paradise.
Drop a Bubbler into a filled tub and watch the magic begin. The Bubbler releases a host of all-natural essential oils and fragrances, transforming your bath from ordinary to extraordinary.

Lush’s Butterball
Our all-time, best selling bath bomb is easily taken as straight forward and simple. Au contraire! This vanilla, cocoa butter bomb is a powerful skin moisturizing agent of the fiercest variety. 20 minutes in the bath is all it takes.

This is just one comparison but several other items are quite similar. I’m not entirely sure how comfortable I am with all the knock offs here but they are a cheap alternatives to Lush that’s for sure! Bombs run from $3.45-3.95 or less in comparison to a Lush Bomb which runs from $5.45-$8 and upwards. Shampoo Bars are $6.99 ($24.99 for 4 Shampoo Bars) in comparison to Lush Solid Shampoos at $8.95-$14.50.

The fun news about this shop is they do carry several items that you won’t find at Lush such as Bath Salts, various kids items, and a few other interesting tidbits!

With my soap lot I also happened to purchase something called Dr. Spot which promises to remove oil, dirt, and many other happy stain mistakes! This is basically a bar of soap that you rub on stains and it’s supposed to remove all of the mentioned stains and MORE! Wahoooo the Muse loves the idea of a spot remover that erases stains!

Overall, Basin has some very cute products with some very, very nice prices! Do check it out and let me know what you think!
