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?
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.
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!
.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!
Cheap, affordable gift giving! Loves it!
Don’t forget to spoil yourself too!
Although the Muse isn’t the biggest fan in the world of Valentine’s Day she can definately open her heart to the love of the Lush Valentine’s Day Collection this year!
I’m quite surprised that Lush went all out this year with it’s fine selection of Valentine’s Day gift sets. Last year the collection was a good deal smaller and I honestly thought it would be even more so this year with the economy the way it is!
But not the case at all! 5 gift sets and a few new products are on the table to sweeten up yours, a friend’s, or a loved one’s Valentine’s Day this year! Check out below for the details on what’s available!
All in all a rather lovely little round up of nice gifts from Lush! I have my eye on the Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar, You Wash My Back Soap, and a My Fair Lady Gift Set.
Is it ok to say I really want the Lush Hello Sailor Gift Set for the tattoo alone. What? I’m a sucker for temporary tattoos because I’m too much of a wussy to get a real one!

The Muse and her best friend Jai had lunch today and as we picked at our gourmet cuisine of Nerds, Diet Cherry Pepsi, and Twizzlers we came across the new Lush UK Promo.
Boy, were we ever tickled when we seen that we can get the new Lush Night in for 2 for £10! That was less than the cost of our exquisite lunch.
After lunch we looked through our pockets and came across a few pennies, some left over cheetos from the night before, and a few dollars. After each producing £5 each we gave Lush UK a ringy dingy and ordered ourselves a Lush Night in for 2 kit!
Indeed, Nerds and Cherry Pepsi did make it’s way onto our powerbooks screens after seeing this particular graphic….
So for £10 we snagged ourselves a kit which includes two muslin clothes, two mini Lush Ultrabland cleansers, a Lush Cupcake Face Mask (neither of us is experiencing teen acne but we sure do love the smell of chocolate mint!), two toner tabs, and two mini Lush Gorgeous moisturizers!
Are you getting excited yet? I know we were nearly rolling in fits of joy while we ordered. The entire package is fully customizable to your skin type so you pick the mask, you pick the moisturizer, and you pick the toner tabs you want.
Now Jai and I are just waiting for it to arrive so we can have a skin slumber party!
Lush Night in for 2 is exclusive to Lush UK so airmail fees apply, we had ours shipped to a friend in London for free (we had a coupon) and she’ll ship it over to us which will be around $8-$9 USD however if you’re doing a large order, airmail directly from Lush UK works out at a rather nice rate. Lusk UK ships without the UK and worldwide. In order to order Lush Night in for 2 you must call Lush UK Mail Order, the item is not available for order off the website. For further info about the promotion check out this link. I failed to mentuon that Lush Night in for 2 is for UK residents or anyone who can get a friend to ship it over as the face masks are not shipped outside of the UK, apologies for not saying as such.
If you’ve never tried Lush Skincare before this is a perfect way to experience a little of everything! I sure hope that Lush NA picks up on this so others can order it without higher airmail fees.
It’s not too late! There’s still time left to head to Sephora and snatch up a few good gifts for friends and family!
Considering that New Year’s is next week you might want to indulge in Stila Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio which contains three smudge pots for $32 USD. At around $10 USD per a pot the Muse is liking this good deal for an elegantly lined eye look for New Year’s Eve (and day) parties and gatherings!
Stila’s Eyes & Shine Smudge Pot Trio contains three gel eyeliners in black, bronze, and gray. Although most makeup addicts claim MAC Fluidline is the go to product for liner the Muse begs to differ. She finds that fluidline applies streaky and she hates having to go back and re-line as it creates more of a mess! The formula of Stila Smudge Pots applies precisely, easily, and mess free the first time, every time, no re-lining required. As per their name they smudge beautifully well to create that perfect smoked out look plus they make a wonderful base for shadows if you choose.
I thought including three smudge pots in one kit was quite a nice value and I think it makes a rather cute little stocking stuffer or come on who can resist getting it for yourself right? You know you wants it!
Snag your set at Sephora or visit www.stilacosmetics.com

The Muse think that stocking stuffers are the order of business today! Is it me or are stockings stuffed with cute little gifts are what Christmas is all about? I freaking heart uber cute items to tuck into family and friends stockings!
The Muse wants to fill your stocking with joy this year so check out her review and giveaway of Yes to Carrots Frosty Loves C Lip Butters below!
If you’re anything like the Muse your lips might be suffering at the moment with the crazy cold weather we are having! Yuk!0
If you’re look for a nice, natural, paraben-free lip treatment you might want to try out Yes to Carrots Lip Butter. These are pretty much the same concept as your normal run of the mill chapstick but the formula is vastly different. It deserves to be mentioned I’m not a big fan of chapstick because I hate the waxy feel. The good news is that these have a superior formula to chapstick. They are soft, moisturizing, and glide nicely onto the lips protecting them from the harsh winter weather and preventing them chapping, drying out, and cracking. Of course the key selling point being the natural good for you ingredients and the paraben-free formula.
Now the Muse hates choosing so she’s happy she doesn’t have to choose with the Yes to Carrots Frosty Loves C Lip Butter Gift Set! The set includes three tasty selections to choose from. You’ll get Mint, Berry, and Carrot all tucked into a cute box decorated with a little snowman!
Cutes for your stocking right?
