Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush 3-in-1 Body Wash Review

Victoria%27s+Secret

After yammering on and freaking on and on about how much I wanted Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush 3-in-1 Body Washes, the Muse finally caved and hauled ‘em all!

While the Muse’s friend Kira shopped butt floss the Muse wandered over to the Victoria’s Secret body care section and started stocking up on the brand new Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush 3-in-1 Body Washes in dozens, ok not dozens but almost, try half a dozen, what? I can’t just choose scent. Come on people I’m the Muse for crying out loud. Since the washes were 3 for $25 and there happened six that turned into the lucky number of the night. But have no fear my entire haul cost a mere $34 and change as I used my handy dandy 20% Off coupon plus I had a coupon that came in the mail for $10 off and finally I had a gift card with a whopping $9 bucks on it! Score! So each cost me less than $6 bucks or so.

Obviously I haven’t had a chance to use all of them but I just got out of the shower not 10 minutes ago after using Honey Do and the Muse likey! They smell quite strong and multitask as a shower gel, bubble bath, and shampoo. I used it as a shower gel and shampoo, now my hair is smelling all fruitylicious.

The scents I got were:

  • Coconut Craze
  • Appletini
  • Honey Do
  • Slice of Heaven
  • Juiced Berry
  • Candy, Baby

Coconut Craze is quite a nice tropical coconut blend but has a touch of headache inducing car air freshener scent if that makes sense at all. Appletini is nice and sweet, fruity, and has a nice tart round out. Honey Do is fresh, sweet, and smells very much like a cool melon. Juiced Berry is my favorite as it’s a nice fruity berry smell. Candy, Baby is a nice cotton candy vanilla like scent. And finally Slice of Heaven is a very nice sweet vanilla blend.

Compared to other 3-in-1′s such as BBW’s and Philosophy, these are def up there as a good decent wash and shampoo. They are extra strong smelling and moisturizing. All in all it makes the shower experience a sweet one. Likey!

Well worth checking out and Muse Approved for purchase!

It’s getting to be that special time of the year kids. Tans, beaches, swimming, humid nights, and long, warm days are ahead! Start getting your Summer on now with Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraīche Skinscent.

Estee+Lauder+Bronze+Goddess+Eau+Fra%C3%AEche+Skinscent+2

This is my first run in with the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess fragrance line up. Although it’s been released from year to year, the Muse somehow missed it’s amazing scent. Now that she’s hooked she’ll def be making it part of her Summer must have selections!

Estee+Lauder+Bronze+Goddess+Eau+Fra%C3%AEche+Skinscent+6

Estee+Lauder+Bronze+Goddess+Eau+Fra%C3%AEche+Skinscent+8


With a sensuous blend of bergamot and mandarin this scent engulfs you in it’s warm heat and makes you think of the hot beach with the scent of tanning oil in the air. Rounded up with hints of coconut, gardenia, amber, and sandalwood the fragrance toys with you nose and captures the true essence of what Summer is all about, heat, warmth, and the boiling sun!

Freaking loves it!

The bottle is 3.4 oz in size and $52 USD. It’s an Eau Fraīche which makes it considerably lighter wear than a typical EDT or EDP but that doesn’t keep it from having a good throw and a nice long linger especially in the warmer weather, seems as my body chemistry rises the scent intensifies into a unique fragrance experience.

Sunsilk Captivating Curls Collection Review

Someone told me that March comes in like a lion and goes out like lamb but it was actually pretty tame this year but hells April now that was some sincerely crummy weather. April flowers brings May flowers, abso-freaking-lutely! It’s been rain and cold since almost the first day of April. Yak! With showers brings many bad hair days all around. Frizzy nightmare! The rain makes a Muse’s hair stand up on end like Einstein. Granted the geek inside the Muse doesn’t mind in the least being compared to Einstein however she’s not so sure about the hair.

Sunsilk+Captivating+Curls+Collection+Review+7

Have no fear Sunsilk Captivating Curls has me covered to keep the evil frizz at bay and keep my wavy, curly hair nice and tame!

With four ways to tame your curls it’s easy enough to avoid scary Einstein hair with a full line of budget friendly products from the new Sunsilk Captivating Curls Collection.

Sunsilk Captivating Curls Shampoo and Conditioner features plant extract aloe-e to help tame unruly frizz and define curls. The Must thinks it smells rather pretty of peach and gardenia so you’re left with fresh scented curls as well as tame ones.

Sunsilk+Captivating+Curls+Collection+Review+10

Sunsilk Captivating Curls De-frizz Leave-in Creme is my new best friend, totally repurchasing when I run out. It’s a soft cream conditioner that you can leave in for taming frizz and keeping curls happy.

Sunsilk+Captivating+Curls+Collection+Review+1

Sunsilk Captivating Curls Gel & Cream Twist is a unique blend that provides conditioning benefits of a cream and a gel. This does a great job of taming frizz and defining curls but it weighted my hair down a fair bit so I did have to use with caution.

Sunsilk+Captivating+Curls+Collection+Review+12

Lastly Sunsilk Captivating Curls Scrunching Mousse creates full-bodied, bouncy curls for a romantic look. Kept curls tame, controlled, and beautiful.

Although the Muse is a lushie haircare girl at heart she can appreciate the fresh scent and curl taming power of the Sunsilk line plus who doesn’t love haircare that costs under $4 bucks. Loves it. If you’re looking for a line to get your curls under control do check out the SunSilk Captivating Curls Collection!

Snag your wellies and head out in the rain to sing because SunSilk has you covered, be gone frizz!

Beauty Discovery: Villainess Soaps

ea

The Muse has been a fan of Villainess Soaps for years now. She recently was thinking what a great Beauty Discovery it would make here at Musings as some of you perhaps never heard of this e-tailer!

Jump ahead to discover Villainess!

I thought that Villainess would make a great beauty discovery because they recently introduced a new skincare line to their normal routine. The new About Face collection includes mud masks and a makeup remover. Quite exciting to say the least.

For it’s fans Villainess is known for it’s incredibly unique round up of soaps that have a bit of a dark edge to them but are delightful none the less. Big slabs of colorful soap in an array of beautiful blends make up the catalog at Villainess with frequent introductions to special limited edition soaps that are available for a very short time which are known as “Temporary Insanity” this is what makes Villainess an interesting and fun bathing experience.

soaps+1

Villainess branches out to getting your skin not only clean but soft and dewy as well with it’s line of body scrubs that they call Smooch! And of course an entire line of whipped body creams wraps up their catalog. Recently, perfume oils have also made a guest starring appearance as of late!

Although the collection isn’t huge the release of new blends quite often keeps things fresh and of course keeps fans clamoring back for more please. With the introduction of it’s new face muds and makeup remover the catalog delves deeper into keeping not only our bodies squeaky clean but our faces as well.

I’ll be reviewing a few pieces I recently purchased for you in an upcoming post including the brand new muds but I thought I’d introduce you to Villainess Soaps today and tell you what a great beauty discovery it is!

Lush Sugar Scrubs

The Muse hopes by now that you discovered the joys of Buffy and may God help you if you haven’t. Hello, it’s Summer soon you want your legs, elbows, and knees in tip top shape right? Head to Lush and snag yourself a bar of the Muse’s favorite scrubby friend, Buffy and get to work!

Lush+Sugar+Scrubs+2

Well don’t take my word for it! Watch this lovely British Lushie tell us all about the benefits of Buffy:


Aw isn’t he lovely?

See kids? Buffy is good for you. Anyway this is technically not a muse about Buffy, it’s about the brand new Sugar Scrubs from Lush!

Lush+Sugar+Scrubs+4

Jump ahead for the deets!

Since the new Sugar Scrubs are along the same lines as my beloved Buffy, I’m of course quite excited about their release and already placed an order (Yes, Lush UK ships to the US) eep!

Available now from Lush UK each Sugar Scrub is £2.50 each.

These are a mix of bicarb and cream of tartar plus moisturizing coconut oil which solidifies the product into a buttery bar. Two flavors are available Sugar Babe and A. Sugar Scrub. Sugar Babe is a ylang flowers and mimosa blossom blend and A. Sugar Scrub is a fennel, ginger and lavender blend.

The Muse thinks these are perfect for scrubbing away all her nasty, dry skin from the harsh Winter while making it soft, moisturized, and pretty for Summer. Likey! If you do order, please remember to order now as they will melt in the warmer weather. Sadly, Lush Sugar Scrub is not vegan friendly.
