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+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!

Philosophy Cinnamon Hot Dots Shower Gel Review

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.

Blinc+philosophy+cinnamon+hot+dots+1

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!

Blinc+philosophy+cinnamon+hot+dots+5

Blinc+philosophy+cinnamon+hot+dots+6

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!
