Beauty Discovery: The Body Bakery

beauty+discovery

The Muse recently discovered The Body Bakery and couldn’t help but be suckered in by the allure of various skincare and haircare goodes that were customized in scents of her own choosing like Cookie Dough, Bubblegum Ice Cream, and Vanilla Cupcake!

Take a trip with the Muse through a bakery for your body in this edition of Beauty Discoveries!

The Body Bakery pretty much has everything one could want for their haircare, skincare, and beauty regime but with a little bit of a sweet, bakery twist! Cupcake Conditioner? Check. Whipped Cream? Check. Pat-a-Cake Hand Cream? The bakery has that too! With sweet little names and even sweeter scents, The Body Bakery offers a range of product like no other with plenty of customizable options and over 40 scents to choose from. Want your Cupcake Conditioner scented like a Butterscotch Brownie? No problem The Body Bakery will serve that right up for you! How about some hand cream that smells like Strawberry Taffy? They got that too!

The Muse recently tried out two of the offerings from The Body Bakery and couldn’t help but get quickly addicted. Cupcake Conditioner in Sparkling Fruit Punch has been detangling my hair all week and making me smell fruity and sweet (so much so that I get many a compliment of, “what is that sweet smell?!). Packed in a large tube with a pump this luxurious conditioner contains plenty of softening oils to add shine to my hair and volume. I can even multitask and use it as a shaving cream! As I mentioned above, Body Bakery offers a customized option for scenting any of their products in a scent of your choosing! Cool, likey! I choose Sparkling Fruit Punch which is an overly sweet (just like the Muse), fruity affair. The scent of lingers long time and gives off plenty of throw. This Muse couldn’t help but sniff her hair every two secs just to enjoy the smell! The formula is nice and thick but doesn’t weight my hair down thankfully.

I also tried out The Body Bakery’s Soap Cake in Orange Chiffon Cake….mmmm so yummie. Cake and orange go so well together. This chunky soap is made from shea butter and silk foam so it gives an extra moisturizing, soft cleaning to skin! My shower was smelling like Orange Chiffon Cake this morning and I was loving it all the way. Nothing like waking up to the smell of cake in the morning!

I.C.O.N. Haircare: I.C.O.N. Shampoo and Conditioner Review

The Muse has a thing about salon style shampoos and conditioners. After cutting her hair she’s always charmed by the shiny display of hair care. To add insult to injury I’ll have my stylist seducing me with the items she used in my hair after the cut. “You know your hair would really love so and so shampoo…” and of course the Muse feeds into the frenzy and purchases whatever it is she used because my hair is smelling and looking so amazing.

Picture+008

Although I’m a Lush girl at heart I’ve been known to cheat! Recently, I couldn’t help but cheat on my hair care regime with I.C.O.N Haircare. Oops forgive me Lush for I have given over to fresh smelling salon style shampoo and conditioner and loved it!

One of thee most important things (and appealing for that matter) about I.C.O.N. Shampoos and Conditioners are the great formulas. Using pure ingredients makes the products very easy on the hair with minimal build up so your hair is clarified, cleansed, and conditoned minus heavy silicons. Likey! I tested out I.C.O.N. Drench Shampoo and I.C.O.N. Feels Free Conditioner. Each has a beautiful salon style scent that leaves hair fresh and pretty smelling.

Picture+004

Drench is a moisturizing shampoo meant to address hair that needs extra moisture. It hydrates dry, unruly locks and works at protecting it while hydrating.

Feels So Free is a moisturizing conditioner that’s incredibly light weight so it leaves hair hydrated without weighting it done, double likey!

I admit I’m very picky and snotty with my haircare particularly because I’m such a lover of Lush but these were essentially two very nice products for treating my hair without weighting it down which always impresses as normally salon or drugstore brand haircare weights my hair down terribly and stresses it out. These are both very light weight, cleanse hair beautifully, and offer great moisture while giving me a good, solid hair day.

The Muse thinks they are well worth checking out for yourself if you’re in the market for a brand new haircare regime. Not bad at all, likes it!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo Review

If by some chance you’re looking to wash that man right out of your hair and everything else with it, that would mean it’s about time you tried out Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo.

Lush+Antiphilitron+Shampoo+4

Hello, my name is the Muse and my hair has been silicon free for years now.

Ahhh the joy of living life with silicon free hair. It’s like having a good hair day every single day! Lush Shampoo and Conditioners are silicon free which means that hair is not weighted down with tons of yucky additives. Additives which give you bad hair days, frizzy hair, flat hair, oily hair and just general hair woe. Although on occasion my hair does crave a little silicon I try to use silicon based products in moderation.

Lush+Antiphilitron+Shampoo+3
Lush+Antiphilitron+Shampoo+1

Lush+Antiphilitron+Shampoo+2
The moral of my story is if your hair is not feeling it’s cleanest and you’re wanting to detox, I’m highly suggesting you grab yourself a big bottle of Lush Antiphilitron and call it a day. You’ll be happy you did!

What is it?

Think of Antiphilitron as a bottle of detox for your locks. It rinses your hair clean of oil, buildup, silicons, and more! What it leaves behind is pure joy! Your hair will feel lighter with a single use, more manageable with less frizz (if you suffer from frizz that is). If you have oily hair you’ll be all the more excited as this works amazingly well on oily scalps to create pure hair bliss! The formula is lemon based which makes hair shiny as well!

Now my hair is a bit on the dry side so I use this once or twice a week to detox my tresses. I use Lush King of Mods and although it doesn’t build up in my hair it does leave my hair feeling a bit oily plus during the week I’ll occasionally reach for my Skindazzles custom conditioner which is loaded with silicons. To rinse all this out I simply use Antiphilitron once or twice a week for a glowing head of hair! Loves it!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo wasn’t available for a really long time as it was discontinued but it was brought back recently with Retro Lush! Who knows how long it’ll last but I sure hope they keep it around for a while as it’s simply awesome!

Who might love it?

  • Anyone with oily hair!
  • Those who want squeaky clean hair.
  • Anyone who’s hair is loaded down with build up from product use such as gel, hairspray, silicon shampoo, and conditioner.
  • Anyone who wants picture perfect hair everyday single day!

Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo is simply amazing stuff and comes with my highest Muse Approval for purchase! I heart this stuff in a big way! Pick it up! It’s a must have!

Last week I featured a friendly, feminine beauty budget find from Lollia to moisturize your skin! This week I’ll feature a sweet little duo to cleanse hair and condition your hair that’s sure to please you packaging wise, cute wise, and price wise!

Lollia holds my heart when it comes to ultra cute, girlishly chic bits and bobs for body and hair care. Today I thought I’d bring you a review of Lollia Clover Blossom Shampoo and Lollia Bee Balm Conditioner in the scent Mint Julep.

Lollia+Shampoo+and+Conditioner+19

These sweet petite treats are available from Lollia for $8 USD each and come housed in small little toothpaste style tubes that are practical yet have that hint of designer charm for displaying in your wash room or on top of your vanity.

Lollia Clover Blossom Shampoo is formulated with purifying clover blossom to protect tresses while wheat proteins build strength. This shampoo is light enough for daily use on all hair types without weighting it down! It’s lightly perfumed with Mint Julep which feels cooling and soothing on the scalp and scents your hair with a delicious blend of vanilla bean, shredded coconut, star anise, and crushed mint.

Both the shampoo and conditioner are very light formula so if your hair is color treated, dry, oily, or silicon free, like my own, you’ll be able to safely use this without weighting hair down or stripping color.

The scent is delicious and it lingers quite nicely in your hair so you’ll be smelling minty fresh all day long. Mint for your hair possibly sounds weird but the other notes of vanilla and coconut morph the mint into a gorgeous blend that’s sure to please.

Since these cute little treats are such a budget friendly price they are perfect for gift giving, stashing in your guest room, or most important, traveling with!

WANT: Lush The Strokes Hair Treatment

Ooooooooooo looks what’s coming back to Lush!

lush+the+strokes

Welcome back gorgeous!

The Muse absolutely adores Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff Eaze and she welcomed it with open arms into the Lush haircare family however with it’s release the Muse had to bid farewell to her favorite hair treatment, The Strokes.

But it’s back!

Lush has introduced The Strokes back into the Retro Lush Catalog and the Muse is all about stocking up on a few and stashing them in her fridge! The Strokes tames my curls and adds tons of shine and body! It smells fresh and citrus like and leaves my hair scented as such for days and days and days after using!

To use The Strokes simply slap a heaping amount on dry hair and slip on a shower cap or wrap your head in a towel. The Muse normally runs a towel under extremely hot water, rings it out, and wraps around her with the treatment on. I leave it on for about an hour although they suggest 20 minutes or so. After the hour is up I rinse off and shampoo (no conditioner required) and I’m left with smooth, soft locks that remain as such for at least a month!

Best hair treatment evers!

The Muse adores The Strokes and is happy for it’s return! Remember kids Lush Hair Treatments only last 3-4 months so use them in that time or they’ll go bad!

Snag yours from Lush for $17.95 USD per a pot!

What’s your fav Lush hair treatment?

Remember The Strokes?

Tell the Muse!
