Bath and Body Works Spring Collection 2008 Sneak Peak

I snapped a few pictures of the Bath and Body Works Spring Collection Catalog for you guys! I’m sure some of you have already seen it but my lovely readers in Europe and Asia (sadly Bath and Body Works doesn’t extend to your area but you can always have a lovely mate in the US CP for you!) probably haven’t so here’s a little Sneak Peak at the Spring Collection!

Sadly no mention of any Temptations which really stinks as I do look forward to those (Read about prior Temptation line ups by clicking here and here). I think we might see one new one for Valentine’s Day like last year and soon after we’ll have a Summer Collection!

These look fabulous! It’s Orange, Lime, And Raspberry Mentha Body Washes! Mmmm a minty fruity twist! I’m slightly, slightly wary of these as the regular Mentha Body Wash has a strange underlay scent that’s somewhat medicine like so I’m scared these might have that same type of bitterness! However, I am very curious about them! This includes matching glosses as well!

Available May 12th:
Body Washes $12 USD Each
Lipglosses $7.50 USD Each

Japanese Cherry Blossom is revamped with a new scent entitled Blushing Cherry Blossom. I’m not a big fan of the Japanese Cherry Blossom as it’s a bit too floral for me however they promise this will be blended with crisp citrus which sounds very intriguing!

Available April 21st:
Blushing Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette $19 USD
Blushing Japanese Cherry Blossom Lotion $10 USD

The new Far East Escape Collection sounds lovely. The description on this says the ingredients include sake, rice bran oil, and green tea extract.

Available January 28th:

For Heaven’s Sake Oil to Cream Cleanser $15 USD
Rice to the Rescue Body Scrub $17.50 USD
Clean Karma Body Wash $13.50 USD
Mystic Silk Body Lotion $15 USD
Self Medicating Body Butter $15 USD

The signature collection also includes a new scent called Enchanted Orchid this too sounds lovely. I’m not big on floral but the scent of orchids is something I do like! This collection also includes a new product called Satin Veil!

Enchanted Orchid Shower Gel $10 USD
Enchanted Orchid Body Butter $14 USD
Enchanted Orchid Satin Veil $14.50 USD
Enchanted Orchid Eau de Toilette $19 USD

Twisted Peppermint Shimmer Body Splash

I should be taken out and shot for going back on my word and giving into the evil empire of Bath and Body Works.

I purchased two bottles of Twisted Peppermint Shimmer Body Splash last night contrary to my original post where I was saying how much I hate body splashes that shimmer.

I guess I’m contradicting myself as we’ve all established how much in love and lust I am with sparkle, shimmer, and glitter of any kind.

However, shimmer in my Body Splashes, Lotions, or any other Bath and Body item should be against the law! I hate it for some reason! I just detest shimmer in these products with a passion! Especially Body Splash! Why for the love of God and all things good would you want the put shimmer into a Body Spray!?

Sigh!

Rant, Rant, Stamping Feet, Rant!

Ok now that I’m done raving like a loon I will say that these were on sale so I guess it makes up for the shimmer part.

These were $4 Each and believe me I couldn’t resist the sweet, vanilla and peppermint scent so the overwhelming need to purchase came upon me and I left swinging a bag of body spray! Shoot me now for giving in!

In all seriousness these smell so yummie but I’m still wishing away the evil shimmer part!

The bottom of each has fake little peppermint candies! Cutes!

I went into Bath and Body Works with the soul plan to purchase a pair of Lambie Slippers because a reader who shall remain nameless for her sin created a lemming in me for these!

Sadly, they were sold out! My god the horror! Thus Twisted Peppermint Shimmer Body Splash took the place of my hardcore lemming for Lambie Slippers just barely mind you!

I’m currently searching E-bay for a pair but they are $39 and upwards and I haven’t yet reached the level insanity where I am even half considering purchasing a pair of slippers, shaped like lambs for $39. If I do reach that level you’ll be the first to know dear readers.

ewww

I did purchase a pair of the Sweetest Softest Slippers for $9 but they aren’t Lamb-y like. Dear oh dear what’s a girl to do?

Anyway.

The moral of the story is Twisted Peppermint Body Spray is a go with the Muse! Grab it while the grabbing is good because it’ll sell out quick at this price (it’s already gone online!)!

Happy Shopping!

Bath and Body Works Temptation Sale

Well me loves it’s that time of the year!

I’m wandering around Bath and Body Works and the Semi Annual is creeping slowly up on us!

The Temptation line, as predicted by yours truly, has made it’s way onto the sale list!

So go yee and stock up on Twisted Peppermint for a mere $6 for a 12oz bottle!

What I seen on the site so far:
Twisted Peppermint 3-1 Shower Gel $6
Twisted Peppermint Body Scrub $6
Glittery Gumdrop 3-1 Shower Gel $6
Sassy Strawberry 3-1 Shower Gel $6
Sugar and Spice 3-1 Shower Gel $6
Various Lotions from the Temptation Line $4
Twisted Peppermint Bath Fizzies $1.75

A majority of it is 50% off at this time but give it a bit of time and it’ll be down to 75% soon I’m sure!

I’d personally start loading up on the Twisted Peppermint if you’re inclined as it tends to sell out fast online once it hits the clearance bin!

Now if they’d just discount the Sweetest Softest Line I’d be a happy Muse!

Happy Shopping!

Bath and Body Works Sassy Strawberry Three in One Shower Gel Review

I was doing some Christmas shopping last night so I happened to drop into Bath and Body Works of course! I promised myself this year I would NOT get sucked into the evil lure of Bath and Body Works simply because I was feeling quite cheap! Yes, I said cheap. I know cheap and the Muse are something that don’t go well together but indeed I was being cheap and if you may I was also being…frugal!

Indeed. Tis true.

So why was I being cheap and frugal?

Bath and Body Works has the biggest array of awesome Holiday gifts and they are all so pretty and sweet and I want everything (for myself) however the evil lure of all these goodies did not even phase me! I didn’t even blink a little eyelash upon viewing all those wonderful, bright packages and colorful shower gels!

Are you screaming blasphemy yet?!

When it comes to gift giving for friends and family I truly have no problem shelling out cash however I would not be tempted by all this wonderful bath candy last night simply because the past few years I’ve given into the temptation to buy tons and tons of Bath and Body Works all to have it be given away practically for FREE on Boxing Day and the entire week after Christmas!

I’m talking major deals! $6, $5, $4, even a $1! Items are normally price tagged at $12 and upwards! being reduced to $4 and $3 totally makes me fall on the floor and convulse in anger that I paid the original price tag for these things! MY GOD It’s a CRIME!

So what did I do last night?

I boycotted Bath and Body Works and told myself I’d not spend a dime for anyone in that shop simply to avoid the drama of tears and anger (ok maybe not tears but I love the drama don’t you?) later when it was all reduced and placed on clearance.

A few items that most definately tempted me to spend, spend, spend was of course all the new Temptation 3 in 1′s! I adore Twisted Peppermint and really wanted to stock up but I was being a smart shopper (pat, pat on the back for this Muse) knowing that these $12 bottles would be $6-$4 after the Holiday was over!

However, the force and lure of Bath and Body Works is strong and I did spot a sign that simply red 50% off in big red letters. I could feel my heart pounding out of my chest at this point so I slowly went over to investigate (my best mate Jen was with me at time and she can vouch that I was literally tiptoeing over to see what the sign was all about! She calls me the “passionate shopper” and says I should have my own show amply named that)!

And to my utter delight it was Sassy Strawberry that was on sale! That meant it was $6! I was nabbing a real steal here! I had to have it immediately at this price! So I snatched up two bottles (one for me and one for my sister who loves the Temptation line as well)! I made sure to be quick because there was about 5000 bottles there and god knows at any second a big crowd might wander in and grab them all before I got my chance to get a bottle for my very self (drama kids drama).

I mistakenly didn’t bother smelling Sassy Strawberry before purchasing it. I have this system where I avoid smelling things because I know I’ll want them. So when I stopped into the shop last night I encouraged myself NOT to smell any of the Temptations because I’d definately want them as soon as my nose tickled with the aroma of Mint Chocolate, Peppermint, and Gumdrops!

When I seen Sassy Strawberry on sale I just assumed that Strawberry and Mint would be a lovely marriage so I didn’t smell it prior to buying.

Big.
Mistake.

You know cheap shampoo? Suave Strawberry Shampoo, V05 Strawberry Shampoo, and hell if you’re as old as me dare I say White Rain Strawberry Shampoo.

That’s what this smells like. Really, really cheap shampoo.

Wow.

So disappointed.

I can’t believe it. To be honest when I originally read about this on the site I literally we’ed myself in excitement at the thought of Strawberries mixed with delightful mint! I thought for sure this would take over my love affair with Twisted Peppermint and make it onto my “must have at all costs” list!

However, I don’t get any mint I simply get a very plastic, fake Strawberry smell. I’ve never met a bottle of Temptation 3 in 1 that I didn’t love but this would make it on my “do not want”, “do not love” list.

Sorry Bath and Body you missed the boat on this one.

Who in the world thought this was a good idea? I’m just wondering where the mint went?!?!?!

I convinced myself that my batch must have went off so I opened my sister’s bottle to smell and again just a strange plastic strawberry smell.

I’m so disappointed I may just spit or cry (or neither but it sure sounded good!).

I’m really somewhat shocked as I’ve truly had great experiences with the line up until this catastrophe! I’ve even went so far as to say the line was better than Philosophy.

The Muse says avoid the Sassy Strawberry and spend your hard earned $6 bucks on something else!

I’m going to go meditate to make myself stronger against the lure of Bath and Body Works!

Don’t give in people! It’ll be on sale before you know it! Be strong!

Have this?
Hate it too?
Loved it?

Tell me! Your Muse is curious what you thought about Sassy Strawberry!
