Man, I seriously need to wake up today. A sleepy Muse is not a pretty Muse! I dunno why I’m feeling so drained but I do so feel the need for a nap!
To get my day started I broke out my Lollia Grenadine & Tonic Honey-Rich Shower Gel aka Beauty on a Budget Wake Up Before You Go-Go Shower Gel!
Nothing like Zoolander and Wham to get a girl awake in the morning!
Like Lollia Shampoos, Lollia Grenadine & Tonic Honey-Rich Shower Gel comes in a cute little toothpaste style tube! Simply squeeze for a bit of wake you me up shower gel! The gel smells like a really nice blend of honey and sparkling citrus! Truly a great morning time shower gel!
The formula of the shower gel is a jelly so it’s rather soft and soothing on your skin. Fresh botanical extracts cleanse skin and honey-rich emollients and Bee Balm with Butters of Mango and Avocado deliver soothing nutrients to the skin. The gel is the perfect size for travel plus it’s a nicely priced $8.50 USD so it won’t kill your beauty budget! It’s also available in the Mint Julep scent which is another great scent for a morning wake up cool!
I adore these cute little shower gels! They make a great little addition to my shower or my guest rooms for visitors plus they are travel friendly when I only need a little something to stash away in my luggage. The scent wakes me up in the morning too which is an added bonus!
If you need a little wake me up before you go-go check out Lollia Grenadine & Tonic Honey-Rich Shower Gel!

Kenzo returns to nature with a new collection of three delicate floral notes, Eaux de Felurs, featuring three separate flowers, picked from Japanese trees to evoke a trail of gorgeous scent!
If you’re looking for a perfectly airy, fresh floral blend that’s light and cheerful for Spring the Muse highly recommends trying out Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk. This fragrance is part of a three piece collection inspired by the beautiful flowers of Japan. Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk is soft floral blend with hints of a fruity dominate base. If you’re not partial to floral perfumes this would be one to try as it’s fruity base softens the floral and morphs it into a very crisp, light Spring scent that’s sure to please. Kenzo describes it as a silk flower that flutters gently in the breeze and indeed that’s a good description as it has an element of airiness as one would experience when the cool wind of Spring is blowing and only the barest hint of floral can be caught and sniffed on the breeze. The sweet fruity notes keep the floral fresh and clean making the fragrance incredibly easy and flattering to wear!
Although it’s an Eau de Toilette it manages to linger nicely and give off a soft throw that’s very pleasant and quite long wearing. If you like softer blends that smell clean and light with hints of both floral and fruit and a bit of peony this would be something you’d love.
Also released for Spring are Eau de Fleur de Magnolia and Eau de Fleur de the Tea. All three fragrances are available for a very limited time from Kenzo so if you’re wanting to spice up your Spring wardrobe with a brand new scent these are sure to please.
Kenzo Eau de Fleur de Soie Silk is available now from Kenzo and is Muse Approved for purchase. It’s an incredibly beautiful scent to shake off the long Winter and get you in the mood for Spring!
If by some chance you’re looking to wash that man right out of your hair and everything else with it, that would mean it’s about time you tried out Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo.
Hello, my name is the Muse and my hair has been silicon free for years now.
Ahhh the joy of living life with silicon free hair. It’s like having a good hair day every single day! Lush Shampoo and Conditioners are silicon free which means that hair is not weighted down with tons of yucky additives. Additives which give you bad hair days, frizzy hair, flat hair, oily hair and just general hair woe. Although on occasion my hair does crave a little silicon I try to use silicon based products in moderation.
The moral of my story is if your hair is not feeling it’s cleanest and you’re wanting to detox, I’m highly suggesting you grab yourself a big bottle of Lush Antiphilitron and call it a day. You’ll be happy you did!
What is it?
Think of Antiphilitron as a bottle of detox for your locks. It rinses your hair clean of oil, buildup, silicons, and more! What it leaves behind is pure joy! Your hair will feel lighter with a single use, more manageable with less frizz (if you suffer from frizz that is). If you have oily hair you’ll be all the more excited as this works amazingly well on oily scalps to create pure hair bliss! The formula is lemon based which makes hair shiny as well!
Now my hair is a bit on the dry side so I use this once or twice a week to detox my tresses. I use Lush King of Mods and although it doesn’t build up in my hair it does leave my hair feeling a bit oily plus during the week I’ll occasionally reach for my Skindazzles custom conditioner which is loaded with silicons. To rinse all this out I simply use Antiphilitron once or twice a week for a glowing head of hair! Loves it!
Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo wasn’t available for a really long time as it was discontinued but it was brought back recently with Retro Lush! Who knows how long it’ll last but I sure hope they keep it around for a while as it’s simply awesome!
Who might love it?
- Anyone with oily hair!
- Those who want squeaky clean hair.
- Anyone who’s hair is loaded down with build up from product use such as gel, hairspray, silicon shampoo, and conditioner.
- Anyone who wants picture perfect hair everyday single day!
Lush Antiphilitron Shampoo is simply amazing stuff and comes with my highest Muse Approval for purchase! I heart this stuff in a big way! Pick it up! It’s a must have!
Inside my purse is a Clean Fun Roll On Perfume Oil that I never leave home without!
Find out why….
The Muse happens to be the biggest fan Clean Perfume probably ever had but she’s so mad at them for never bringing Clean Fun out in EDP format. Oh my god it’s the awesome. I can’t believe they never thought to make it into a perfume but just left it as an oil!
How they managed to bottle up the fresh scent of a shower with super fun, flirty blast of citrus is beyond me but that’s exactly what it reminds me of. A cross between “clean”, “fruity”, and “sweet”. It’s heaven. Notes of Green Tangerine, Grapefruit, Orange and Limes create a wonderful wake me up fragrance that lives up to it’s name, “Fun!”
I tote Clean Fun around with me everywhere and use it as a quick touch up when my perfume has long since worn away. It’s the perfect perfume oil for nights I am leaving from work and heading out with friends for dinner, a movie, or just to hang out. It wakes up me, keeps people asking me, “what are you wearing?”, and puts me in good spirits!
Such a fun, uplifting scent! Clean Fun Perfume Oil is in this Muse’s purse!

When I noticed that one of newest brands that Sephora is carrying at the moment was Pacifica I got all kinds of hyper. With high standards about what goes in their products plus an inexpensive price tag, Pacifica is a user friendly product on all accounts.
Facing a declining economy plus a need for more vegan/organic brands, Pacifica comes out as a shining beacon. With plenty of bath and body options in large sizes with small price tags the brand manages to appeal to our need for more all while paying alot less.
I’ll be featuring several items from the Pacifica Collection over the course of the next few days as I’m so deeply impressed with the quality and the price. I’m positive after you hearing my raves you’ll want to indulge in a few items yourself!
Jump ahead to hear me babbling in joy over Pacifica Solid Perfume!
Boxed up in brightly packaged slide boxes, Pacific Solid Perfumes captivate and make a girl want to reach out and grab one just to look at the sweet little boxes the perfumes are housed in. Although the box is gorgeous the real gold lays with in so slide it open to reveal a sweet little tin no bigger than a size of a MAC eyeshadow that houses a gorgeous little solid perfume that paraben-free ad made from organic coconut wax, organic soy wax, and natural and essential oils.
These sweet vegan friendly perfume solids pack an interesting, complex, and unique scent that’s traveler friendly and cute as a button! If you’re wanting to multitask you can use these solids not only as a perfume but also to rub on rough elbows, knees, and cracked heels for a bit of extra moisture but remember for the most part they are solid perfumes.
The scents all have a nice throw and a good linger but my body chemistry sucks them up so I do have to reapply throughout the day to keep the scent fresh. Considering the tins are so tiny I can tuck one in my makeup bag or desk draw for a quickie pick me up through the day. A bit on all my pulse points freshens up the scent and creates a subtle yet lovely little scent of goodness. I tried four of the blends but there are a slew of others. From fruity to natural, woodsy or herbal, Pacifica has that perfect little scent for everyone. The scents I tried were Lotus Garden, Tunisian Jasmine, Bali Lime Papaya, and Egyptian Bergmont Rose.
Pacifica Solid Perfume in Lotus Garden was recommended to me and I must say it’s the very best of all four. I was thinking how floral it would be but it’s actually very fresh with hints of fruit and a tiny underlay of floral. Incredible scent. The dominant note that takes over the blend for me is a crisp, clean citrus. The citrus keeps the blend fruity but it’s quickly followed up with green notes and a strong underlay of lotus which gives it a certain twang. Who would think that citrus and lotus would go so well together? The scent manages to have a fun element but also a sexy one. It’s truly something you have to experience to understand, an amazing fruity floral blend that’s fresh, clean, and sweet!
If it’s fruit you crave with a sweet kick Pacifica Solid Perfume in Bali Lime Papaya is sure to please! A dominant note of papaya will hit you right in the face on first sniff but the twang of lime morphs the blend and creates a sweet, tart blend that’s complex and fun, perfect Summer scent!
Pacifica Solid Perfume in Tunisian Jasmine is ridiculously good. I don’t particularly like the scent of jasmine and this is straight up, in your face jasmine but oh it’s something special. It contains Mediterranean almond which could account for what makes this blend so incredible. It’s a really fresh, floral but very hardcore and heavy. It’s unique, very sexy, and utterly different. Loves it!
And finally, my last scent, I tried Pacifica Solid Perfume in Egyptian Bergamot Rose. Yet another complex and interesting blend full of warm, spicy notes and hints of floral this blend is sexy and flirty. I get a strong dominant note of a spicy musk for the most part but the rose and bergamont keep the scent fresher and slightly floral. I’d favor this for more of an evening scent!
At a sweet price tag of merely $9 USD each Pacifica Solid Perfumes won’t break your beauty budget. Each tiny tin is ideal for travel can be easily toted around for quickie touch ups on the fly. Pretty, bright, festive packaging keeps a Muse coming back for second and third helpings of these sweet little perfumes.
All in all I think Pacifica Solid Perfumes are truly a unique little beauty find and sure to please both vegan friendly and beauty budget gals alike!
The Muse loves ‘em! Cute, fun, and unique these are the perfect price for spoiling yourself.
