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?

mark Mists Juicy Body Fragrance

Oooo I want the new mark Mists Juicy Body Fragrances! They look darling!

mark+Mists+Juicy+Body+Fragrance

Jump for the deets!

Juicy Peach, Luscious Mango, Tangerine Squeeze, and Very Watermelon sound absolutely heavenly in a body mist! I’m such a fan of fruity fragrances in the Summer and these sound just the thing.

The catch?

They are $10 bucks each and only 3.2 oz in size.

Mark what in the world are you thinking? You guys are known for fun, inexpensive beauty finds. Why such a high price tag guys!?

For this price I can go to Victoria’s Secret or Bath and Body Works and get triple the size for less!

Loves ‘em but will skip on that price tag!

Clean, Fresh Summer Fragrance: Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Coral Review

My sister is a real fan of clean scents. Cotton, linen, etc….really appeal to her. I can’t really say the same as I’m more of a sweet, fruity type myself. Recently, I tested out Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Coral and was pleasantly surprised at what a fresh, clean scent it was.


Click it for the review.

Although fruity blends speak to me in the Summer I admit that the freshness and gentleness of Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Coral seems an ideal scent for warmer, humid weather. The fragrance has a certain contradiction of complexity and simplicity. With notes of Chinese Berry, Pink Peppercorns, Apple Blossoms, Waterfruits, and Cear Aldehydes it combines to create a fresh, floral, crisp, clean scent that’s sure to please anyone who can appreciate a softer fragrance.


Linen does come to mind when it hits my nose first spray. Inviting and soft like a towel from the dryer. Drown down is more of a crisp, floral that still manages to remain fresh with an every so slight sweetness.

Truly Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Pink Coral is something special. I’m really enjoying this one for warm Summer evenings.

Beautiful, simply beautiful.

Who might like this?

  • Anyone who adores very fresh, clean scents.
  • Anyone who enjoys a lighter scent for the warmer weather.
  • Anyone who adores scents that are both fresh and floral.

Anyone smell this yet or buy?

Hot Summer Fragrance: Benefit Crescent Row

Benefit+Crescent+Row

Ok, so I gotta tell you. Benefit Crescent Row excites me. If you haven’t already heard Benefit Crescent row is a release of three brand new fragrances based on a strip of flats (apartments for the totally clueless) in Bath, England, which serve as a home to several imaginary gals. Their lives are filled with laughter, gossip, and seduction (damn these girl’s have it all) and each scent, bottle, artwork, and name was created to reflect the fascinating protagonists.

You know how terribly obsessed I am with England so of course I want all three of these but the real joy is the fact that Benefit knows good fragrance. One thing about Benefit they really put out great fragrance blends and I have the niggle in my noggin that these are going to prove to be something very, very special.

Jump ahead to read more and hear my story about Benefit past blends!

Now as I was saying Benefit has a nose for a good blend. Benefit Maybe Baby and Benefit B Spot are two of my very favorite fragrances. All of Benefit fragrances are Eau de Toilette but this doesn’t prevent each of their fragrances from being quality items with long linger and beautiful throw.
