Bath & Body
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.
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.
Lollia Clover Blossom Conditioner adds shine and flirt to hair. Keep hair calm and moisturized with milk and wheat and the cool scent of Mint Julep!
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!

Spicy hot is the order of business for the new Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Collection. Rich hues of bronzer, shimmering shades of shadow, and slippery sexy lips should break you from Spring to Summer in a flash!
Jump ahead for the full details!
I’m always delighted by any and every Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Makeup Collection that pops up. I’ve always been terribly pleased with all the releases and the quality of the Limited Edition items so but of course the new Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Collection completely appeals to this Muse. Although I’m not much of a bronze fan I can’t help but feel a sense of excitement upon viewing all these new goodies. The collection is inspired by the rich hues and scents of Brazil, think tropical heat, warm sandy beaches, and plenty of shimmering shades. Releasing with the collection are some beautiful point makeup items such as a bronzer, eye palettes, glosses, and even a fragrance!
The Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Silky Bronzer Powder is available in two shades for Light to Medium skin tones and Medium to Dark. The bronzer is housed in a zebra printed compact with a large brush for buffing color on. The compact is $24 USD which is a reasonable price and quite in keeping with the normal price tag on Victoria’s Secret LE items.
Also releasing are two Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Radiant Shimmer Eye Palettes for $24 USD each. The two shade selections available are entitled Amazon RainForest and Rio De Janerio. I’m partial to the lighter shimmering golds, beiges, and browns in the rain forest palette. The Rio De Janerio palette contains more popping shades of blue, purple, and brown. Each palette has four strips of shimmering eye shadow that can be worn wet or dry for a more dramatic, tropical look!
Victoria’s Secret Beauty of Brazil Lip Gloss is available in three shade selections for $15 USD. In an interesting twist this new gloss comes in a squeeze tube where as Victoria’s Secret normally prefers housing it’s LE glosses in a square tube with a brush or sponge applicator so this is an interesting packaging choice for them. The shades all look like semi-sheer shades that range from peach to berry, the formula also has an SPF of 15.
And finally to complete your steamy, tropical look you can spray yourself with the new Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Now Eau de Parfum. This new version of Very Sexy is a colorful blend of exotic fruits like papaya and creamy coconut with a blend or orchid to spice things up!
I’m really loving this collection and I’m adding it to my Summer wish list! I’ll be picking it up as soon as I see it in store so I can review for you. At least one of the eye palettes, possibly a bronzer, and all the glosses are getting added on this Muse’s list!

Oh hai! I’m the Muse and I have a beauty confession for you today (I’ll be sharing more beauty confessions with you soon but you’ll have to wait and be patient).
You know those little mesh hanging sponges that you use in the shower with your fav shower gel or wash?
I have a beauty confession about those little guys!
Jump ahead to read it!
So the Muse is so anal that she tosses these sponges out every three weeks. I know, I know I can totally get more use out of them than a mere three weeks but…..
The story goes like this….
I dunno remember what I was watching or where but it was this beauty documentary somewhere, someplace and on this doc they mentioned how many germs and how much bacteria grow in your shower and within sponges, toothbrushes, etc…of course we all knew that already but it freaked me out so much that I toss those little sponge meshes out every three weeks. Indeed, I do this religiously.
So you might be the frugal type and thinking gosh she’s insane all that money for the sponge and she’s tossing it? Turns out the Muse’s mother is the dollar store Queen of Manhattan. I. hate. dollar. stores. with. a. passion. I hate them but my mum loves them with a passion. The lady sniffs out every single dollar store within a quarter of a mile radius and attacks. She adores dollar stores with a passion and will proceed to call me to rave about her awesome hauls from said locations. Personally the Muse won’t step a foot into one but lucky for her that her mum is indeed the dollar store Queen which means that said dollar store Queen tells the Muse to buy bulk mesh sponges for a buck at the local dollar store. Well, wow, awesome! Who knew? Now I feel less guilty about tossing out my bacteria ridden mesh sponges!
That was rather a long confession wasn’t it? You know you love me.
Go ahead confess your beauty!
The Muse is listening!
Carrying around perfume isn’t exactly conventional. So what’s a girl to do when she wants to touch up before an evening out after work?
Check out what’s In the Muse’s Purse for the deets!
Starring Fragrance organic roll on perfume oils are strong scented and come in gorgeous blends like Baked Marshmallow Mint Cake, Blueberry Candy, and Straw-Nana Cake…have I got your mouth watering yet?

The Muse is terribly fond of reminding everyone how Philosophy has really improved on it’s 3-in-1 Shower Gels as of late….I can’t be the only one that feels this way right?
But of course their newest QVC Exclusive has me wanting to sample it as the idea of Apricots and Cream sounds heavenly!
This three piece kit contains large sizes (24oz chubby bottle) of the newest Philosophy scent Apricots and Cream. You’ll get Philosophy 3-in-1 Shower Gel, Philosophy Body Lotion, and Philosophy Lip Shine all in the brand new scent for the perfect fruity sweet layering experience!
The price of the kit is $48.06 USD. Each 24oz shower gel normally prices at $20 USD so you aren’t really saving a ton of money by buying the kit. If you’re purchasing each item separate the total cost would be $50 USD plus tax and in this case with shipping and tax it comes to nearly $60 USD. Honestly, the only thing you are getting is the limited edition products and exclusivity of the kit although we all know sooner or later these things have a way of popping up on Sephora. Taking cost into consideration, although I really want to try out the shower gel I have no need of another lotion or lipshine so I think I’ll wait to see if Philosophy Shower Gel in Apricots and Cream ends up at Sephora sometime soon!
If you absolutely need it now look up item number A90250 at QVC.
