Bath & Body
If you’re looking for a fun, flirty little scent that’s not hard on the budget, the Muse suggests trying out C-Thru Fragrances!
Geared towards teens this new line of fragrances is actually created by a division of Estee Lauder, yes you read that correctly, Estee Lauder! And guess what? They are available at your local Walmart, Kohls, and Target which means the price tag is itty bitty!
Although they were created with young women in mind the Muse doesn’t mind indulging in something so cute and fun. These are available in three fun scents which are Ruby, Blue Opal, and Purple Diamond. Which gem are you?
Ruby is a blend of peach, rose and vanilla and comes across as the fruitier of the scents. Blue Opal is a watery floral with hints of watermelon and lilac…personally I get heavy floral from it but nothing overkill more fresh and clean. And Purple Diamond is blackcurrant and jasmine with hints of musk.
Each scent is priced to own at $17 USD upwards to $25 USD.
The bottles are funky, bold shades of purple, aqua, and pink with clear crystal beads embedded into the actually fragrance. The effect of the crystals creates a lava lamp style packaging that’s quite fun for anyone who likes a bit of color and funk when it comes to their fragrances.
Although these are Eau de Toilette I do so promise that they are STRONG! Phew! One spray is plenty to keep you going from day to night without any touch ups in between. Surprising quality for an EDT considering my skin normally sucks EDT’s right up within an hour. These last pretty much all day with one minor spray so please do keep it light and fresh with one squirt!
Along with a unique blend each fragrance also has it’s own personality. Ruby is for someone who’s passionate, confident, and strong! Purple Diamond is meant for those who are mysterious! And Blue Opal is an expression of spirituality and balance.
If you can’t decide which C-Thru fragrance you are why not try all three by purchasing the C-Thru Fragrance Set which contains all three “gems” for $20 bucks! Sweet beauty on a budget buy!
C-Thru can be purchased at Walmart, Kohls, and Target.

Whatta ya get when you combine grapefruit and vanilla?
Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit Fragrance.
Lavanila’s Vanilla Grapefruit Healthy Fragrance is a light, fresh scent that is actually good for you! Who knew!?
It’s infused with powerful antioxidants and active botanicals that nourish and condition skin! Who knew!?
Anyway forget all that….let’s get down to the good stuff.
The scent itself.
I really love how unique Lavanila fragrances are and Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit isn’t any different. Unique, different, and quite exciting this blend of sparkling grapefruit with a heavy base of vanilla, sandalwood, and hints of lime is perfectly Spring-like on a cold, dreary winter day. Although the dominant note of vanilla overtakes most of the fragrance you’ll experience a calming, fruity dry down with hints of grapefruit and lime that make this fragrance extraordinarily unique. The fragrance is a Eau de Parfum with an obvious high level of fragrance oil as a tiny spray or a dab will last all day and well into the evening. The scent has incredible linger and a nice throw so don’t over do it, a tiny little bit goes a very long way.
This is the first time I’ve tried Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit as I always pass it by for my personal favorite Lavanila Vanilla Coconut but after trying out the sample I obviously need to indulge in a full size! Yummie! Likey!
Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit is definitely Muse Approved for purchase as is everything from Lavanila Laboratories.
Feel good about your Lavanila purchase knowing that it contains 30 essential vitamins and minerals and 19 amino acids minus harmless ingredients like mineral oils, pethrochemicals, parabens, and silicon.

Oh woe is the Muse. She resigned herself to not ordering anything from the Lush Valentine’s Day selection this year but than she seen this year’s Lush UK Valentine’s Day offerings and she’s finding it difficult to resist it’s evil lure!
Jump ahead to read more about Lush UK Valentine’s Day 2009.
I’ve already discussed the Lush NA Valentine’s Day releases and although they looked lovely I had decided I really didn’t any of it. I did think that Lush UK would stick to the same round up but noooooooo they had to go and do some items that are exclusive to their side of the pond that I’m so lemming now!
Lately the release after release of B fragrances in Lush soap format is absolutely thrilling to me. First Cocktail, followed by Keep It Fluffy, and now beautiful Love! Oh love, sweet love!
Love is one of my favorite scents from B Never so I’m thrilled they made it into a soap! Yay!
If you love girlish scents you’ll really enjoy a heart shaped, limited edition Mmmmm Melting Marshmallow Moments! Softens up your bath water and offers extra moisturizing and beautiful scent. Gather up a SWALK and spoil yourself!
Taking it’s newest Bath Bomb, Vanilla Fountain, and making it into a fragrant massage bar is a clever idea to say the least! Heavanilli Massage Bar is sure to please the vanilla lovers out there!
Lush UK ships worldwide so if you’re wanting to cure that lemming you can order now at www.lush.co.uk
