Bath and Body Works Hello Sugar Shower Gel and Body Splash Review

I needed serious retail therapy this weekend. Honestly, I did. I’ve been so upset the past week that my friend Jai decided I needed a day of shopping (as if either of us needs an excuse to shop). So away we went on Saturday afternoon.

We stopped at Bath and Body Works not only because I had a thirst to sniff the new Hello Sugar! Collection but also because Jai has a thing with tanning and bronzers and all that crap so he had to peek at the new dial a tan thingy (or whatever it’s called) that BBW has out right now. According to him tan is sexy and his boyfriend think he looks amazing with a tan so I guess that means Jai has to do everything he can to get a sexy glow for his significant other. I say whatever floats your boat but I’ll be in the shade, under a palm tree, thanks very much!

It wasn’t difficult to locate Hello Sugar! as it was right up front on a huge display. I was scared that if I picked one bottle up the rest would tumble all over the place since they had them stacked so high.

And the verdict is in. The Muse is both delighted and disappointed with Hello Sugar!

I picked up the Body Splash and the Three in One Shower Gel to start. First of all I should take note and mention that the Body Spray came in an ultra cute bottle with little faux rock candy dangling from the top. It’s a plastic bottle but it can easily pass for glass! I like it! Very cute and different for Bath and Body Works!

I’m a disappointed because this smells nothing like I imagined. I was seeking something fruity with an underlay of sweet for the Summer. I associate sweet and fruity smells with Summer and adjust my fragrance wardrobe according to that. This is fruity but not so much sweet. Turns out this is more of a foody scent. It smells to me like lemon cake or lemon meringue pie. The sugar is there and the lemon is there but it’s somehow been combined with some sort of cake or baked good smell.

That’s the bad news….however the good news is even though it’s disappointing that it isn’t fresh and fruity it is a delightfully beautiful scent! The sweet and sour scent of lemon combines wonderfully with the underlay of cake I’m getting and the entire smell transforms into a very light bakery scent. It’s so very difficult to describe but it’s as if I am smelling some sort of lemon tart or pastry.

I’m not entirely sure I’m loving the idea of Hello Sugar! for the Summer but it’ll make a beautiful Fall scent or even Winter!

Overall I like it. It’s very interesting and different for Bath and Body Works. I’m enjoying the fact that they have dipped their toes into something new and exciting and aren’t keeping with the normal scheme and theme of things!

Cheers to Hello Sugar! The Muse enjoys veering off the well walked path on occasion!

Hello Sugar! is available now from Bath and Body Works! $12 USD for the Three in One Shower Gel and $12.50 USD for the Body Splash.

Love this?

Bath and Body Works Hello Sugar! Collection

bath hellosugar 033108
I check up on Bath and Body Works daily to see if any new Temptations have been released and during my regular visit I noticed they had a new line available. I could be wrong but maybe this new line will be replacing the regular Temptation Collection that we’ve been seeing for the past few years!

The new collection is entitled Hello Sugar! and looks very promising. I’m hoping that this smells like a sweetened, fruity, sour combination of lemon and sugar but I’m fearful this will be some sort of Fresh Lemon Sugar dupe (not that I don’t love Fresh Lemon but something different would be lovely) I’m very much in favor of the fruity, sweet version please!

The collection includes a three in one shower gel, a body spray, a shimmer body lotion, a body meringue, and a lipgloss. It’s only available in the Hello Sugar! fragrance but I’m hopeful they’ll extend the line to include other scents! I love the Tempation line but I don’t mind seeing something new like this pop up either!

Wanna try it?

New Ultra-Moisturizing Mentha Lip Tints from C.O. Bigelow at Bath and Body Works

ewewewewe

If you’re a fan of the Mentha Lip Tints from C.O. Bigelow you might happy to hear they released a slew of new colors. The flavor remains the same which is the intense, cooling peppermint but the color variety is updated to include tints like Magenta, Coral, Plum, and a few other colors!

The tints are on sale now at Bath and Body Works for 3 for $15!

The flavor is too intense for the Muse but the price is right!

Want ‘em?
Love ‘em?
Hate ‘em?

Remember these?

I flipped over these during Christmas and none were to be found in the land! However, lucky enough I did end up with a pair!

The good news is they are now up and available on Bath and Body Works Website again!

But I have better news!

BEHOLD:

Do you love these? Admit you want them! $10 bucks! It’s the Lambie Slipper Sock! Ahhh! *runs around in circles*

I want these so badly!

I went to my local BBW when I stopped off for Fafi last night and of course they had them but someone smeared freaking lipgloss on ‘em! I asked if they had another pair and of course I got a killer attitude and a big, fat “whatever is on the shelf Mizzzzzzzzzzz!” Thanks for nothing!

The good news is they are available online!

The Muse likey and wants two pairs please!

And you know you’ll be running to get ‘em too! Who can resist the lambs!?
