The Muse is kinda down that Lush NA didn’t really do much in regards to a sale this year. Normally Lush does a Clean Slate sale which entitled the masses to major free goodies however this year they had a clearance sale on Christmas goodies only and from what I’ve heard and seen so far that’s about it.
It doesn’t bug me overmuch because I rarely order anything from Lush NA as most of the time I do my ordering from Lush UK so I’m not really too upset that the sale was off this year however I do know many a Lush lover who really missed it.
However, as I mentioned I did indulge in the clearance sale….
The Muse happens to be a very big fan of Lush’s sister company, Be Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful and one of her very favorite scents from the company is Keep It Fluffy.
This year as part of the Holiday Collection Lush introduced Keep It Fluffy in a guest soap! Bless be! The Muse overindulged in mass quantities of the soap and happily indulged further when Lush had it’s Holiday sale.
Behold, Keep It Fluffy Haul:
I already had quite a few bars of Keep It Fluffy stashed away but I ended up purchasing five from Lush NA and getting five for free during the sale. That was 10 bars for under $50 USD! Score!
I won’t go into great detail about how Keep It Fluffy smells since it’s quite complex and unique but this Muse did want to share her haul with you!
Not so long ago in a distant land far, far away…well, ok, maybe it wasn’t so far away.
Not so long ago in a land quite close by named Bath and Body Works a Valentine’s release of a special 3 in 1 Shower Gel was released entitled Red Hot Love Story!
The Muse remembers the release like it was yesterday and cherishes her excitement upon taking her first sniff of the spicy sweetness that was Red Hot Love Story. Bath and Body Works extended it’s popular (and long gone *sniff*) Temptations line up to include the limited edition Red Hot Love Story for Valentine’s Day.
Now Red Hot Love Story was truly an interesting little product and the Muse simply loved it. Allow me, if I may, to bestow upon you some mental images to help you understand what it smelled like.
Last year the Muse was able to snag a few bottles of Bath and Body Works Red Hot Love Story at the semi-annual sale for $3 each. I was really dreading the day that I used my last bottle because I sincerely love this.
But good news!
The gods at Philosophy have introduced Cinnamon Hot Dots 3 in 1 Shower Gel! Bless be! Just in time for Valentine’s Day too!
It’s spicy, it’s hot, and it’s sweet. What more could a girl ask for? It’s an exact dupe of those old fashion Red Hot candies that you loved (or hated) as a child. First sniff hits you with a tingling spicy hotness and a slow sweetness that takes the edge off all that cinnamon! The Muse likes to think of it as ambrosia.
The Muse thought she’d give you a friendly service announcement about the fact that Philosophy Shower Gels can be used as a shampoo, shower gel, and a bubble bath!
Although I’m not big on V-Day I simply adore the novelty of Philosophy Cinnamon Hot Dots and it even puts me in a little bit of a festive mood for hearts, candy, and lurve.
Snag a bottle two for yourself and give a bottle or two to a friend to make their Valentine’s Day all the more sweeter!
The Muse Approves spicy, sweet, hotness from Philosophy!
The Muse likes the idea of eating her cake, candy, and other sweeties minus the calories. It just so happens she can enjoy all of the above with the Philosophy Spring Collection 2009.
The Muse loves the fact that Philosophy has drastically improved the formula of it’s popular line of Three in One Shower Gels. The scents are much stronger, lingering, and truer to their namesake. The Muse guarantees you’ll love all four of the newest Philosophy 3 in 1 Shower Gels without doubt! She’s sniffed them for her very self and thought they were divine and without the calories who can resist?
Four new scents to choose from to get you in the mood for not only Spring but Valentine’s Day too so tell your sweetie that you want a slice of cake, a piece of candy, or a decadent dessert from Philosophy!
Speaking of Valentine’s Day what would it be without Candy Hearts? A duo of lipshines flavored with Angel Food and Pink Bubbly to keep your honey happy when he kisses you!
Can’t get enough of Red Licorice? Check out the Philosophy I Love Red Licorice Gift Set which includes one Philosophy 3 in 1 Shower Gel scented in Red Licorice and a matching Red Licorice flavored lipshine! Tis love the Muse thinks!
All in all a rather sweet filled Spring season with Philosophy’s newest additions! The Muse will be bringing you a review shortly on these yummie new goodies. You didn’t not think she’s hauled these did you? Sweets for a sweet after all! *bats lashes*
Damn that Tom Jones! I’d fling my panties at him any day of the week!
Fact of the matter is it really is cold outside! The Muse just got home after fighting with traffic and idiotic New York drivers. But she’s safe and sound in her house now. At the moment it’s a stormin’ outside and 15 inches of snow is expected to land outside. The good news is it makes it feel more like Christmas but the bad news is that the Muse happens to be way too old to go outside and build a snowman! Darn.
View from the Muse’s makeup room!
But she really doesn’t have to forsake that snowman….Lush has a solution!
There isn’t anything in the world like a really hot bath when the chill of the winter is howling outside your window. Forsaking the outdoor snowman for an indoor one in my bath was the way to go today! Meet Lush Frothy the Snowman Bubble Bar:
Frothy creates mounds of soft, fluffy bubbles (hence his name…froth…..bubbles…get it?) in your bath while scenting your hair, body, and skin with a mix of coconut, licorice, and vanilla. He’s quite moisturizing and after stepping from the tub you’ll notice how soft and smooth he’s made your skin! The Muse thinks he’s rather cute as a stocking stuffer or a little topper on a gift.
The only sad thing about Frothy the Snowman is you have to crumble him up into little pieces to use him in your bath but once you get over mourning his broken little body you’ll be happy to step into your hot bathtub filled with lovely, scented bubbles to relax and de-stress!
Crumbled remains of Frothy waiting to melt away into masses of bubbles! He’s a holly jolly soul and welcome in my bathtub anytime of the year but sadly he told the Muse not to cry as he’s limited edition and will be gone after Christmas but he may be back again someday!
Someone said it’s the most wonderful time of the year, the Muse thinks it was Andy Williams.
The Muse thinks Andy Williams is the best thing since toast and tea although she also thinks they may only tug him out of the closet when they need a little Christmas. You ever notice he pops up in the weirdest places? This year he was dancing around 34th Street during the Thanksgiving Day Parade! Yup…they def take him down, dust him off, and use him when they need a little Christmas around! Afterward they tuck him safely back in the closet until next year! They do the same for Dick Clark during the New Year you know!
Dontcha just want to go into your closet right now and search out your bestest Christmas sweater after viewing that pic? I know I do!
Well anyway the moral of today’s story is that the Muse thinks Andy Williams does a fine job of making it the most wonderful time of the year but she also thinks that Lush Snow Fairy lends a special helping of Holiday cheer to my shower, bath, and hair, making it a truly wonderful time of the year!
It’s a sad state of affairs that Lush Snow Fairy is only around once a year and like Andy Williams it gets tucked away and doesn’t come back until next Christmas so now would be a good time to stock up on as many bottles as your bathroom cupboard can hold because you don’t want to be without Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel this entire year do you?
What Lush has to say about Snow Fairy:
Sparkly pink, sweet-as-sugar shower gel for fluffy, fruity fairies
We thought that this cotton-candy scented, sparkly gel would be just the sweet surprise for small girls who like wearing party dresses and waving wands. Amazed we were when we found fully grown hairy men using it too. (They send other people off to buy it for them, but we know!) It’s a Christmas best seller and you know best! So she’s back. Stock up before she flits off to Fairyland again.
What the Muse says:
If you love sweet scents that are girlish and pretty this would be one to grab. It’s difficult to describe Snow Fairy and although it’s been compared to cotton-candy the Muse thinks it’s so much more! It has a bit of vanilla, a bit of a wicked fruitiness, and just the right touches of pink. The Muse concludes that if pink smelled it would have the scent of Snow Fairy attached to it! Sadly, I cannot say more about it because it’s difficult to put into words exactly what it smells like but rest easy as the Muse absolutely adores it and thinks you will too!
Snow Fairy is bubblegum pink with a bit of shiny gold glitter but don’t worry the glitter washes off easily! You can use this in your shower or to lather up your hair (oh my nothing like Snow Fairy scented hair) or if you so please a little squirt in the tub will give you tons of moisturizing, sweetly scented bubbles!
The Muse is telling you all about the virtues of Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel today because she thinks your holiday will be a bit more wonderful if you snag some of this great shower gel! Just like Snowcake it’s Muse Approved for purchase and well worth getting a few to last you and keep you sweet smelling all year long!
