Beauty News: Crabtree & Evelyn Files Files For Bankruptcy

Crabtree+%26+Evelyn

Crabtree & Evelyn filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday making it the latest to succumb to the poor economy.

Read ahead for the details!

The company currently operates 126 stores in 24 states and employs around 950 people. Although they are filing bankruptcy they are not going completely out of business but will be reorganizing the way they do business which will include closing several stores.

Crabtree & Evelyn is a specialty shop and with larger offerings from stores such as Bath and Body Works offering items at a cheap price it must be difficult to keep business up. I’m saddened to hear this news and have hopes with time the company will prosper once again.

Loves It or Leaves It: Bath and Body Works Body Sprays

bath+and+body+works

It’s undeniable that Bath and Body Works has a huge selection of body fragrance that fits every budget. Ranging from $8-$10 bucks for a large size of body spray is a deal and a half for shiz!

As Summer approaches I’m sure Bath and Body Works Body Sprays may top your list of fragrance must haves!

Bath and Body Works Body Sprays Loves It or Leaves It for you?

Click ahead for my view!

At one point I was a chronic collector of Bath and Body Works Body Sprays. Honestly, they are so dirt cheap it’s rather nice having a large selection of fragrances to choose from. However, over the years the formula seems to not be as strong as it once was so I’m kinda at the leaves it stage in life. I definitely still have a fair bit of love for them but I’m always rather picky which ones I haul. I normally wait for special ones to release such as the Temptation Collection ones and Hello Sugar. I find the LE items which are rarely released lately are the most special when compared to other standard items that are always on offer.

Although I lean towards Leaves It! I tend to also lean towards Loves It as well depending on the scent and my mood!

How about you?

L’Oreal Extra Gentle 2-in-1 Buck’s Berrydactyl Shampoo


The Muse is terribly childish, believe me she knows this, but today when L’Oreal Extra Gentle 2-in-1 Buck’s Berrydactyl Shampoo popped in my mailbox I got terribly excited. As you know I’m a fond fan of detoxing my locks with baby shampoo but for the most part I was just excited about the art of the bottle featuring Buck from the new Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs film in theaters July 1st.

What?

I’m a big kid at heart!

Along with Buck’s Berrydactyl Shampoo, L’Oreal is also releasing Ellie’s Orangesaurus, Diego’s Man Eating Melon, and Sid’s Pineapple Shampoo. Yes, I want to collect all the scents…particularly the orange and pineapple!

A while ago I wrote an article about clarifying your hair with kid’s and baby shampoo you can see that article here. Buck will aid me in getting my hair squeaky clean with a bit of a berry scent to go with it plus he’s cheap as day old chips with a price tag of $2.99 or less. Likey.

Ok, end childish post.

You may proceed to share your thoughts about Ice Age, kid’s shampoo, or other babblings in the comment field.

I’m a listening!

Lush 13 Soap (Unlucky for Dirt)

Only Lush would think it would be a good idea to combine oregano with rose. Is it me or does that somehow remind you of pizza for some odd reason or another?

lush+13+soap

Lush 13 Soap is a mix of rose and oregano and gets it’s name from a 1931 film about soap. I looked that up and didn’t see anything about it but I think I’d love a movie about soap…or cosmetics…or shower gels…hmmmm.

Lush 13 Soap is made with oregano because it supposedly kills MRSA bacteria, I dunno about that but from what I’m hearing from Lush fans it smells heavenly. But do go right ahead and count me skeptical…I’m still thinking pizza…must be the oregano.

It’s available now from Lush UK and soon after I’m sure it’ll come visit our side of the pond where we can enjoy it with pizza.

If you could create a Lush soap what ingredients would you use?
