Bath on a Budget: Skindazzles

In continuing with my Bath on a Budget hot topic of the moment today I present to you some nice goodies from Skindazzles!

Two bath products that I adore from Skindazzles are the Bath Bombs and the Shea Boom Candy!

The Bath Bombs and Shea Boom Candy are rotated in scent as seasons and holidays change so check back often for new scents on both! At the moment my little eye spies scents like Candy Cane Cake and Gingerbread in celebration of Christmas, which will soon be upon us!

Bath Bombs are your standard bath fizzies that fizz, pop and swirl around in your tub making your bath water soft and beautifully scented! I find the scents in the bombs quite strong and lasting! I have many places I buy bath bombs from and Skindazzles makes some of my favorites!

Shea Boom Candy is a treat for your body! If you like your bath water moisturizing and soft these wonderful candies are what you seek! They are soft and squishy and melt away happily in your tub as you bath scenting the water and making your skin soft and sweet! I normally crumble this under running water but you can float it in your bath water and laze while it melts away! Upon exiting your bath you’ll see how gorgeously smooth your skin will feel!

Bath Bombs and Shea Boom Candy at Skindazzles are most definately fitting for bathers on a budget, bombs are $3.70 and candies are $3.

Please keep in mind prior to ordering from Skindazzles that airmail shipping applies as it’s a business located within Canada however shipping prices are fairly reasonable if you get a few items!

Starring Fragrances by Ashley Peldon

You’re Muse happens to love unique perfumes that she can’t get in regular shops that sell fragrance! My tastes in fragrance run to the unusual I guess and when I’m seeking something sweet, foody, or unique I visit with the gorgeous Ashley Peldon at Starring Fragrances to get my fix!

I have many, many, a bottle of cocktails that Ashley, herself, has created! The scents at Starring Fragrances are mostly in the foody range so if you’re a grave lover of scents that smell of cookies, cakes, or gorgeous decadent foody items this would be the spot you want to grab some very interesting blends!

Ashley has recently extended her popular perfume line and is now doing custom blended hair and body care items such as lotions and shampoos! I haven’t personal tried any of the new products but I can give my Muse approval to the wonderful perfume blends that are created at Starring Fragrances!

The thing that totally sells me on these perfumes is the incredible staying power and special notes within each perfume! One or two sprays is all you need to smell completely edible and delicious all day long! Upon spraying one of these you can distinctively pick out the notes with the perfume which is so amazing. If I spray myself with my favorite blend, The Scream Queen, I don’t get one particular scent from the perfume I can smell all sorts of notes through the blend all day long! As the day progresses and the perfume dries down and heats up with my body temperature I can smell the tart sweetness of the berries, the luscious vanilla ice cream, and the yummie bubble gum!

If you’re looking for a unique experience in your perfume world Starring would be a great place to start!

Some of the Muse’s favorite blends:

The Scream Queen
Yummie Berries, Vanilla Ice Cream and Bubble Gum!

Yellow Marshmallow
Yellow Cake with fluffy marshmallow!

Red Licorice
Strawberry and Cherry Licorice! Mmmm!

Who Spiked the Cupcakes?
Yummie cotton candy, vanilla cupcakes, and frosting! Oh my how decadent!

With a Cherry on Top
White Cake, Marshmallow, and of course Cherries!

Starring also does a line of tarts which are fantastic as well! If having your house scented with yummie baked treats sounds tempting do check out the tart line up!

Starring Fragrances is Muse approved and I can’t say enough good things about this great little e-shop!

The customer service is fantastic and packages are shipped in a very timely manner with little to no wait time! Ashley is extremely sweet and accommodating with requests if you should have any! Starring does ship via parcel post which makes the Muse impatient as her goodies normally end up taking from 7-10 days to arrive. This can’t be helped as all liquid must be shipped via US parcel post by law! Starring even has a Frequent Buyer Reward System that offers various discounts with each order you make!

The Muse always tries to get nice goodies for you and Ashley has been kind enough to offer readers of Musings of a Muse a special treat and as it’s Halloween it’s always nice to get a treat or two!

You can try out a 1oz perfume for 1/2 Price from Starring Fragrances by entering code MUSE during checkout! This is a great deal as perfume’s run $26 at the normal price!

Go get yourself a sweet treat for Halloween and tell the Muse all about it!

Philosophy’s Sugar Plum Fairy Scrub

Oh my!

After telling you all about the virtues of Philosophy’s Sugar Plum Fairy in a previous post I’m excited to tell you that the line has been extended to a salt scrub!

Philosophy Sugar Plum Fairy Body Scrub
sugarplum

Wahoo!

This scurb is a Nordstrom Exclusive and available for purchase now! The scrub is $25 which is a good deal as they are heavy duty jars full of yummie scrub to make your rough bits nice and soft!

I just purchased Senorita Margarita scrub for a dear friend as a gift and this I believe would make a very nice Christmas pressie if she ends up loving the scrub!

You can purchase your Sugar Plum Fairy by clicking your way over to Nordies! It’s in the Muse’s cart already!

Bath and Body Works Holiday Tempations Line Up

As you can probably tell from my past blog entries I’m really loving the Temptations line at Bath and Body Works!

I can’t help it I have that “collect ‘em all” disease when it comes to these fabulous Three in One Shower Gels.

I used to be a true Philosophy Girl and adored the Three in One’s but I find that the Temptation line is better in quality, cheaper, and has a larger scent selection so as of the past few months Bath and Body Works has my money in the shower gel department sorry Philosophy!

Check out the new Holiday line up and try to convince me you don’t absolutely want some of these!

Oh my the Muse does like the idea of Sassy Strawberry! This new shower gel from Bath and Body works is scented in Strawberry and Mint! A Marriage most divine in the Muse’s opinion!

If you’re on a bit of a mint kick check out the Dreamy Chocolate Mint! My mouth is watering!

Since you’re feeding your sweet tooth I’d say that the Glittery Gumdrop sounds just sweet enough to bring a sugar and sweet to your shower!

It’s been said that the Muse is made up of Sugar and Spice and all things Nice (you can add cheeky into the mix too if you so please!)! So why shouldn’t she have those things in her shower! Sugar and Spice sounds just the shower gel for me!

pBBW1 3926235dt

The line up looks amazing and you know that these most definitely will end up stuffed in my stocking this year just don’t think the Muse too cheap if she waits for Boxing Day to purchase them so she might nab them at $3-$6 instead of the original $12 price tag! She highly recommends ordering these Christmas Eve Night (or the day after Christmas) when she knows they’ll most definitely be on sale!

Want these?
