Demeter Tootsie Roll Pick-Me-Up Cologne Spray Review

I think Mister Owl should be taken out and shot! How the very dare he eat the entire lollipop! I bet that kid went home and bawled afterward!

The Muse is smarter then that and she refuses to share her new Demeter Tootsie Roll Pick-Me-Up Cologne Spray with Mister Owl!

Mmmm all the goodness of Tootsie Rolls and none of the calories. Although Tootsie Rolls are supposedly low in fat…hmm why don’t I believe that?

Demeter Tootsie Roll Pick-Me-Up Cologne Spray recaptures my childhood for sure with this new edition to it’s fragrance line up. Too cute right? You may mind walking around smelling like a Tootsie Roll but I don’t. It adds to the Muse’s awesome quirky personality!

If you love really fun scents where people stop and ask “What in the world are you wearing?” this would be for you.

Picture+486

Yes, the scent does indeed smell identical to a Tootsie Roll. Sweet, chocolaty yum! The Muse likey! The fun factor alone on this totally makes me grin!

Love this?

Love Tootsie Roll?

Bliss Shock Therapy and Bliss Minity Scrub Soap Review: Chillingly Cool Summer Treats for the Skin

Do you realize in less than two weeks Summer will turn quickly into Fall? Holy cow where did the time go! I still have Summer blog entries to post….is there a board I can appeal to to extend the Season?

Dear Seasonal Board,

Can we please have an extra month of Summer? The Muse hasn’t yet gotten through all her Summer makeup collections and wants to finish up her reviews before the cold weather sets in.

Thank you for considering this matter.

Sincerely with Hugs and Kisses,
the Muse

I REALLY should have gotten to this post earlier but hopefully we’ll have a sudden heat spell and you can make proper use out of my Bliss Shock Therapy and Bliss Minty Scrub Soap Review!

Picture+521

Do you love minty goodness?

I do.

Which is why I’m absolutely smitten with Bliss Shock Therapy. It’s cool, refreshing, and minty. Literally. I mean it’s really cool. As in it makes you shiver after you step out of the shower! Cool right?

This fantastic little shower gel is uber awesome as it literally cools you down on warm, humid morning. Squeeze some in a puff and go to town and you’ll begin to notice as it lathers that your skin will begin tingling and cooling off! After you step out of the shower chances are you’ll be rubbing your arms and shivering a bit.

I love it!

It’s that extra shock of cool that I need on hot Summer mornings plus it wakes me up like all hell in the Winter! Brrrrrr!

I happen to adore Shock Therapy so much that I normally follow up my cooling experience with the ridiculously large bar of minty soap. This soap is about the size of my foot. It’s freaking huge! I love all Bliss soaps but this one in particular is a favorite of mine since it’s minty and cooling.

The bar contains a fine grain of scrubbing beads inside the bar so you can get to work scrubbing those rough, dry elbows, knees, and legs to reveal smoother skin! I normally use the elevated side to work on dry spots and follow up with the smooth side.

The soap lasts ages and ages since it’s so large and you get the benefits of both a great soap, a cooling, refreshing shower, and an exfoliating treatment!

Psstt….I normally purchase Bliss Shock Therapy in bulk when Bliss has clearance section up. Around this time it’s about $7-8 USD a bottle! Sweet deal!

Both of these are Muse Approved for purchase!

Love ‘em for a cooling Summer experience!

Like this?

Love Bliss?

Bath and Body Works Scentportable Fragrance Unit Review

Ooo look what I got!

A Bath and Body Works Scentportable Fragrance Unit!

Picture+134

Fun, Fun, Fun!

I’m a sucker for tarts, scented oils, room spray, etc…so the idea of having a portable little unit of scent that I can clip anywhere I want kinda gets me hyper!

This little guy is available from Bath and Body Works for $5 USD but I’m sure sooner or later you’ll see some cool deal on these!

Basically this has a scented gel disk inside a plastic housing with clip. You can either sit this on a desk, table, etc…or clip it in a closet, car, or any small space. It delivers a blast of yummy scent to whatever area you choose to put it in. It’s a rather nice and safe way to fragrance an area without a electric, batteries, or the flame of a candle.

The one I have is Coconut Vanilla which smells beautifully foody and tropical. It kinda smells like cake mixed with coconut. The throw on this is fabulous. I have it clipped in my car so you know as soon as the temperature rises and your vehicle is sitting in the sun for a good long while the scent will begin to warm up and create a beautiful fragrance. I love getting in the car after a hot day and smelling this mmmm!

It’s also suggested to throw in a gym bag or luggage! These last 4-6 weeks supposedly, I’ve only had mine a week and so far it’s going strong!

One minor problem with the unit is it isn’t refillable. After the fragrance gel insert is completely dried up you aren’t able to purchase a replacement so you’ll be throwing the entire unit out for a fresh one. Not exactly environmentally friendly unless the plastic is biodegradable but I don’t think it is. Aside from this minor rant I thought this was a rather cute way to get a little fragrance into small spaces!

Check ‘em out at Bath and Body Works! They also happen to come in five scents to choose from!
Got one?

Loving it?

How do you scent your home, car, office?

Jaqua Beauty Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Shower Creme Review: Sinful and Possibly Illegal!

Those naughty kids over at Jaqua Beauty have been busy concocting a brand new fragrance that’s both sinful and delicious!

Raspberry Buttercream Frosting is the newest addition to Jaqua’s decadent Bath and Body Collection and the Muse couldn’t be happier that she got the chance to test out the new Shower Creme and Lip Whip (dontcha love the sound of that? Lip Whip! It simply rolls off the tongue and makes me shiver in delight!). Since Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Lip Whip deserves it’s very own review I’ll be saving that for later however I will tell you all about the new Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Shower Creme.

Picture+137

Mmm…simply Mmmm….

Picture+138

This stuff should have a big, fat illegal sticker slapped on it! It’s rich, sinful, and gorgeous. It’s terribly sweet and fruity with just a tiny hint of frosting. It’s definately not a foody sort of smell so don’t expect baked goods or vanilla do to the “frosting” in it’s title. It’s more of a sweet, fruity blend of raspberries that has a under note of an exotic perfume. It’s fascinating how they blended up something that not only holds the wonderful sweetness of the berries but also manages to keep an interesting and unique note that’s sophisticated. Yes, indeed, the Muse likey but maybe I really shouldn’t tip the bottle into my mouth right? Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!

Picture+139

I’ve have a small stash of Jaqua’s Shower Syrup decorating my bathroom closet however I’ve never tried the Shower Creme. To me the formula is about the same but the Shower Syrups are a tiny bit thicker in consistency than the creme. I’ve always loved how very rich Jaqua’s products are in formula. They are very thick, very moisturizing, and just an all around posh product. The Shower Creme are no different from any other product I’ve tried from Jaqua in the fact that they are a solid, quality, posh product that delivers both moisture to the skin while spoiling us in a wonderful fragrance! In this case that wonderful fragrance is Raspberry Buttercream Frosting! The creme lathers up wonderfully well and offers a nice lingering scent on the skin! Yum!

Waste not want not kids! After the photo I scooped all that lovely gel up and washed my hands with it! I know, I know, the life of a Beauty Blogger is a dirty, dangerous job but someone has to do it!

Remember how I was blogging Demeter’s Newest Tootsie Collection a few weeks ago?

I couldn’t resist these! Leave it to Demeter to bring back my childhood with fragrances like Tootsie Rolls and Dots! Tropical Dots no less!

Picture+094

Sugary sweet with a blend of fruits is pure perfect for Summer dontcha think? This one has a blend of grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, and coconut! At first squirt I got the tart, semi-sweet smell of grapefruit which went strong until the dry down when I get touches of a tropical candy like smell that was simply delicious!

Picture+093

I can’t help myself! I heart cute fragrances! If you’re looking for a Summer fragrance that’s both fun, funky, fruity and sweet this one is for you!
