WANT IT: Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe

Philosophy+The+Sweet+Shoppe+3

By now I imagine I sound like a broken record. But..ahem…allow me to repeat myself for the umpteenth time and mention that Philosophy continues to impress me with it’s 3-in-1 Shower Gel range.

I’ve always been a mad fan for Philosophy Shower Gels but even as a fan I confess disappointment over a few that didn’t quite smell like their namesakes. Ok, I admit some were down right wrong on many levels.

But over the course of a year and a half or so Philosophy has beaten out shower gel after shower gel that impresses and tops each past release. The scents are creative, true to their namesakes, and delicious. Actually if I think about it they are exactly what I originally hoped and wanted from Philosophy but somehow was disappointed when it didn’t turn out as such.

Why you must ask am I going on about this now?

Well, Philosophy has three brand new scents available at Sephora and I suspect more will follow soon for Fall.

Click it and learn what they are and why I’m excited!

Indeed I’m not averse to a quick stop at The Sweet Shoppe, particularly Philosophy’s Sweet Shoppe.

Now available and brand new are the Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe Set that includes Watermelon, Little Fishy, and Bubblegum Scented 3-in-1 Shower Gel ($30). Although I find myself unexcited about the actual set (I prefer the large size shower gel bottles) I am excited about the scents. Little Fishy? I adore the scent of Swedish Fish candy! Bubblegum? Another fond favorite! And Watermelon too? Be still my beating heart.

I hope that Philosophy will extend these scents to the bigger bottles if not I shall indulge in the set but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a larger size.

Also available is the Philosophy The Sweet Shoppe Lip Shine Duo ($20) which includes Watermelon and Bubble Gum flavored glosses! Sweet! What happened to Little Fishy though? Sob!

Whatever your opinion of Philosophy you can’t deny the cuteness behind these sets!

Want!

Anyone else excited?

Hot Summer Fragrance: Summer by Kenzo Eau de Parfume Review

Summer+By+Kenzo+1

Bring a little touch of sun to your fragrance with Summer by Kenzo Eau de Parfume. With notes of bergamot and citron this fragrance will surely please for daytime wear all through the Summer heat!

Jump ahead to hear the review!

The Muse finds many of Kenzo’s blends a bit overly floral and quite powerful. My sister is a huge lover of all of Kenzo’s blends and can’t rave them enough however for myself some are a tad too strong. However, I recently found love with one of the Kenzo Eau de Fleur fragrances and now with Summer by Kenzo.

Summer+By+Kenzo+2

Summer+By+Kenzo+3


With a burst of warm, slightly sweet floral Summer by Kenzo is a sultry fragrance that captures the spirit of the season. Notes include bergamot and citron with a warm powder dry down and touches of amber, almond milk and mimosa. Summer by Kenzo is a complex warm blend that’s sure to bring a touch of warmth to your Summer fragrance regime. The golden lines of it’s leaf-shaped bottle is a sunny piece elegance for your vanity.

Capture the warmth and sizzle of the season with Summer By Kenzo, one of my favorite blends for Summer so far!

Worthy of a sniff!

Anyone try?

Beauty Babblings: Sephora France Shampooing Shampoo

Sephora+France+Shampooing+Shampoo

Ha and you thought that Sephora US had some stupid offerings! Check out Sephora France’s Shampooing Shampoo.

It’s a shampooing shampoo which basically means it’s a shampoo you can shampoo with. Cool right?

Um clearance rack anyone?

Jump for it!

Available in 14 scents this is a mild shampoo from Sephora France.

Ok, ok I admit that I’m eager to start shampooing my hair with shampoo that has scents like Chocolate Praline and Vanilla Creme Brulee. Maybe Sephora France does have the upper hand here.

Want it?

Can’t have it, exclusive to Sephora France sadly.

No worries maybe the shampooing craze will catch on and Sephora US will start carrying these and we can all indulge when they hit the clearance rack for a buck.

Likey!

What do you think about Sephora releasing shampoos?

Yay or Nay?

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?

Loves it?

Leaves it?
