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.

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.

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!

What are your fav salon style shampoos and conditioners?

Ever try I.C.O.N.?

L’occitane Peach Blossom Collection

There’s something terribly attractive about peaches. Sweet, juicy, and fuzzy….ok, well maybe the fuzzy part isn’t all that appealing!


L’occitane obviously knows the value of a good peach which is why they have a brand new collection dedicated to that sweet, juicy, fuzzy fruit!

L’occitane Peach Blossom is a brand new exquisite fragrance that combines the scent of velvety white peaches with lemon, and bergamont with a base of
musk, iris, and tonka bean.

Considering how much I adore the lemony goodness of L’occitane Verbena I could probably quickly get on board with L’occitane Peach Blossom.

The collection is an array of limited edition pieces that include an EDT, lip gloss, body gel, shower gel and more! Prices range from $12-$46 USD. I was particularly delighted that the EDT was $46 USD as isn’t the 3.4 oz normally around $67-$76 USD or am I totally losing my mind here?

I’m feeling the love so I think I’ll head out to L’occitane too to nab some for a review.

What do you think?

Loves it?

Leaves it?

chox+away

Brand new to Lush UK, Chox Away Soap is a smooth, creamy chocolate hand and body soap.

We all likey guilt free chocolate right?

Although it hasn’t made it’s way across to our pond as of yet I’m sure we’ll see Chox Away sooner or later. Although I’m not big on chocolate scented bath products even I can appreciate a Lush chocolate scented product.

If you can’t wait you can order now from Lush UK.

If you try before the Muse you’ll have to give her the good word, curious minds.

Lush: A BIG Bathing Experience XXL Bath Bombs

lush+xxl+bombs

Lush has super sized three of it’s popular bath bombs and taken them from 6.3oz to a whooping 28oz!

W00t!

I’ve blogged super size Lush before when I gave you a peep at my Lush Pud from Christmas ’07. The concept is the same as the Pud but the bombs aren’t technically “filled” with goodies which makes them cheaper in price and also leaves me wondering are they solid or hallow? I’d say hallow inside as that sure would be a HEAVY bath bomb!

No matter what way you splice it you can’t deny these are a fab addition to the Lush line up and the price is quite friendly too as you can get quite a few baths out of one bomb or of course you can just shuck the entire thing in your tub if you’re feeling the need to spoil yourself rotten.

Each bomb is $15.95 USD each and available now from Lush NA and Lush UK. They are available in Big Blue, Avobath, and Sex Bomb scents!

Likey!

Want!
