Philosophy Red Licorice Shower Gel Review

It all started with black licorice. But not being satisfied with just black, Philosophy had to go and tempt the Muse with red licorice.

You may or may not know it but Philosophy Red Licorice Shower Gel has been around a few months now but just recently popped it’s pretty head into Sephora so of course upon seeing it at Sephora the Muse was all about picking it up and trying it out for herself.

Philosophy+Red+Licorice+Shower+Gel+1

And boy oh boy is it good. You needs it now please.

Philosophy Red Licorice is a dead on dupe for that pack of Twizzlers you probably reach for when you’re out at movie with friends or when you want a quick low calorie snack. It’s amazing how accurately they captured the scent. Strawberry sweetness mixed with that slightly plastic scent that the Muse associates with red licorice makes for an amazingly luscious shower gel!

Philosophy+Red+Licorice+Shower+Gel+3

Truly this one is a keeper!

How much can possibly be said in a review of a shower gel right? I won’t rave on and on and on but I will say that I think you really need to try this one especially if you’re a lover of sweeter scents or absolutely adore red licorice.

Philosophy+Red+Licorice+Shower+Gel+2

Loves this one!

Philosophy Shower Gels offer plenty of luxurious suds and can be used on your hair, in your bath, or in your shower! Multitasking with red licorice? Likey.

Snag this one!

Spring Collection 2009: Lush Valentine’s Day Collection

Although the Muse isn’t the biggest fan in the world of Valentine’s Day she can definately open her heart to the love of the Lush Valentine’s Day Collection this year!

lush+valentine%27s+day

I’m quite surprised that Lush went all out this year with it’s fine selection of Valentine’s Day gift sets. Last year the collection was a good deal smaller and I honestly thought it would be even more so this year with the economy the way it is!

But not the case at all! 5 gift sets and a few new products are on the table to sweeten up yours, a friend’s, or a loved one’s Valentine’s Day this year! Check out below for the details on what’s available!

lush+strawberry+feels+forever+massage+bar

Lush+Nudge+Nudge+Wink+Wink

lush+my+fair+lady+gift+set

lush+hello+sailor

Lush+Happy+Valentine%27s+Gift

All in all a rather lovely little round up of nice gifts from Lush! I have my eye on the Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar, You Wash My Back Soap, and a My Fair Lady Gift Set.

Is it ok to say I really want the Lush Hello Sailor Gift Set for the tattoo alone. What? I’m a sucker for temporary tattoos because I’m too much of a wussy to get a real one!

Get ‘em while they are here because once they are gone you’ll have to bid them farewell till next year!

Avon Skin So Soft Fusions Soft & Replenish Dual Softening Body Wash Review

The Muse thought she’d cheap it up today and break open her bottle of Avon Skin So Soft Fusions Soft & Replenish Dual Softening Body Wash.

Avon+Skin+So+Soft+Fusions+Soft+%26+Replenish+Dual+Softening+Body+Wash+1

I know, I know, it’s not everyday you see your Muse going the cheap route but hey desperate times calls for desperate deals right? I’m on my search for the best beauty budget finds and this happens to be one!

Read on to learn more!

At $3.99 USD for a 6.7oz bottle, Avon Skin So Soft Fusions Soft & Replenish Dual Softening Body Wash is a value for your buck. This mutitasking body wash cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes. See? I told you it was a deal.

Avon+Skin+So+Soft+Fusions+Soft+%26+Replenish+Dual+Softening+Body+Wash+5

Avon+Skin+So+Soft+Fusions+Soft+%26+Replenish+Dual+Softening+Body+Wash+3

The product contains a dual chamber which houses one side of a moisturizing lotion like shower gel and another which contains an exfoliating gel treatment. Squeeze a small amount into a shower puff, sponge, or your hand and the two formulas combine to create a creamy, bead infused shower gel. Small beads massage and exfoliate skin while the creamy base of the product offers moisture. The gel smells fresh and clean and leaves skin soft and silky smooth!

Avon+Skin+So+Soft+Fusions+Soft+%26+Replenish+Dual+Softening+Body+Wash+4

Skin So Soft is an extremely popular line from Avon and extending the line to include these new body washes is truly a good thing. The Muse likes the price and the way her skin feels gorgeous after use. Can’t beat the price either.

Avon Skin So Soft Fusions Soft & Replenish Dual Softening Body Wash is a fab Beauty on a Budget score.

Philosophy Pink Frosted Layer Cake Shower Gel Review

The Muse is quite fond of reminding the world that Philosophy has come a long way with it’s popular 3 in 1 Shower Gel Collection as of late. For a while there this Muse wasn’t really buying because some of the scents weren’t exactly “true”. For example, take Philosophy Sugar Cookie…lots of lemon but no cookie or sugar. What happened Philosophy? I can go on and on but the fact of the matter is and what remains important now is that Philosophy has more than redeemed itself as of late with it’s new and improved fantastic shower gel formula and the Muse likey, alot.

As part of it’s Spring Collection 2009, Philosophy has released a brand new 3 in 1 Shower Gel entitled Pink Frosted Layer Cake and it’s lovely to say the least!

Fun Fact: Although the world is fond of remembering Marie Antoinette’s immortal words, “Let them eat cake!” the Muse will happily inform you she never uttered those words but it sure is quite fun to think she did!

Anyway. What was I saying?

Oh yes, Philosophy Pink Frosted Layer Cake Shower Gel…mmm….mmmm….good! Philosophy gets it right again with a blend of sugary sweetness, a tiny hint of fruitiness, a touch of vanilla, and just the right amount of pink cake! Even Marie Antoinette would approve of this one!

Philosophy+Pink+Frosted+Layer+Cake+Shower+Gel+1

I think this is possibly the best one they’ve come out with in a while aside from Red Licorice that is. I thought they did a fine job with the scent and it just engulfs you in a cloud of what a pink, sugary dessert should smell like. The gel can be used in your shower, in a warm bath, or to wash your hair with, as if you didn’t already know all that.

Philosophy+Pink+Frosted+Layer+Cake+Shower+Gel+3

Philosophy+Pink+Frosted+Layer+Cake+Shower+Gel+4

Philosophy Pink Frosted Layer Cake Shower Gel is a luxuriously sudsy shower gel that perfectly suitable for putting you in the mood for all things pink!

The Muse Approves it for purchase! Loves it!

Hauled It: Lush Keep It Fluffy Soap

hauled

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….

Lush+keep+it+fluffy+soap1

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:

Lush+keep+it+fluffy+soap2

Lush+keep+it+fluffy+soap3

Lush+keep+it+fluffy+soap4

Lush+keep+it+fluffy+soap5

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!

Anyone else haul during the sale?

What did you get?

Tell the Muse!
