Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit Fragrance Review

cats

Whatta ya get when you combine grapefruit and vanilla?

Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit Fragrance.

Lavanila+Vanilla+Grapefruit+Fragrance+2

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!

Me! Bath Ice Cream Review

ice+cream

It’s perfectly ok to indulge every once and a while. It’s particularly nice when we can give into temptation for sweets minus the calories!

Me! Bath Ice Cream is the perfect solution for calorie-free indulgence and a relaxing, full on spoil yourself treatment for your bath!

Me%21+Bath+Ice+Cream+1

Me%21+Bath+Ice+Cream+3

Enjoy a spa-like experience when you drop a Me! Bath Ice Cream Bath Bomb into your tube! Spoil yourself rotten with a Me! Bath Ice Cream that bubbles happily away in your bathtub releasing minerals and aromatic oils while you relax.

I tried Me! Bath Ice Cream in Gotta Have It Pomegranate which is a happy, sweet, tart, and tangy blend. The bomb kicks up quite a fizz in the tub and creates a softly scented bath with plenty of moisturizing benefits so as you bathe your skin becomes soft and silky smooth. Gotta Have It Pomegranate is a bright pink affair that’s shaped like your favorite scoop of Strawberry Ice Cream and smells amazing but don’t give into temptation and eat it! This is strictly meant for your bath!

All in all I really enjoyed my bath with Gotta Have It Pomegranate and I’ll be purchasing a few more bombs to de-stress the day away with sweetness and pure indulgence.

L@@K It turned my bath water into a delightful shade of pink!

Avon Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: Avon Sweet Delicious Lip Balm and Avon Bubble Bath in Chocolate Strawberry Truffle

Ok, ok so the Grinch (or in this case the Muse) that Stole Valentine’s Day says that V-Day is such a terribly overrated holiday! Seriously, do we need one day of the year to tell people we love them?

Come.
On.

But…I admit…I kinda dig V-day beauty! I secretly love when Sephora, Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, Avon, Etc…release little bits of beauty fun that’s themed for Valentine’s Day. I can’t deny I love the cute factor.

Taking into consideration the economy is absolutely depressing as hell I think we all need a little budget beauty Valentine joy to put a little bit of a smile on our face.

avon+valentine%27s+day

Agreed?

Agreed.

Soak away the stress of reading the news with Avon Bubble Bath in Chocolate Strawberry Truffle. Who doesn’t want to soak in a tube full of chocolate strawberry scented bubbles? Plus at $4.99 USD for 24oz you can’t beat the price! Snag some for yourself and maybe as a cute little gift for a friend this V-day season!

Avon+Bubble+Bath+in+Chocolate+Strawberry+Truffle

.69 cents for lipbalm? I’m all over it! Avon Sweet Delicious Lip Balm is available in four flavors:

  • Coconut Cream
  • Decadent Cherry
  • Luscious Berry
  • Sweet Strawberry


Layer ‘em up to create a cherry, berry, strawberry, coconut smacking pout! Hey, for .69 cents you can’t really complain about the price!

The Muse suggest snagging some Valentine Gift Bags from Oriental Trading Company for $6.99 a dozen and stuff an Avon Lipbalm or two into the bag, with a bottle of Avon Bubble Bath, and a few Valentine chocolates and give it to a friend or two to make ‘em smile!

vday

Cheap, affordable gift giving! Loves it!

Don’t forget to spoil yourself too!
