Bath and Body Works
I lurve me some shimmer. As if we hadn’t already established that already! Remember last year when Guerlain released a gold, shimmering radiant powder with it’s Holiday Collection? Oh the love….I felt the shimmery, gorgeous golden love!
Now…as gorgeous as it was we have and had obstacles. It was $78 USD which for any diseased, cosmetic junkie was well worth it but honestly I do so admit that might have been a bit of an overkill price wise. If I had to do it all over again I’d still buy it anyway! The second obstacle is the fact that it’s long gone and probably never to be seen again unless you’re willing to swap a kidney on MUA or sell a heart on E-bay!
But…have no fear…the Muse is here to save the day!
So you want a budget version of Guerlain Gold Radiant Powder? Check it:
This be Bath & Body Works Limited Edition Radiant Powder and it’s just as awesome as Guerlain plus it’s heaps cheaper! Now Bath & Body Works Radiant Powder is not new by any means however it does have incredible new packaging as you can see above which just totally sells the product to me.
Bath and Body Works Radiant Powder vs. Guerlain Radiant Powder
The powder comes in a vanity worthy Victorian style perfume bottle with ball depressor. Simply squeeze and you’ll get a burst of gorgeous scented shimmering gold powder anywhere you please. I think that Bath & Body Works aimed to design this for your body however I’ve been using it in my hair, on my face, along my shoulders and arms, across my chest. It be crazy shimmer time kids! Not only do you get gorgeous golden sparkle here and there but you also get a rather nice, lingering scent as the powder is available in three different scents. I dunno how…I dunno why…but the scent does linger for a considerable amount of time on the skin. I was just under the assumption that the scent would fade right away but it actually sticks around quite a fair bit. Golden shimmer and scented? I’m loving it!
As I mentioned above it is available in three scents which are Vanilla Noir, Warm Vanilla Sugar, and Japanese Cherry Blossom. The vanilla scents are my favorite as they each hold a certain warmth that I associate with the Holiday Season. Vanilla Noir is pretty much straight warm vanilla where as Vanilla Sugar has a subtle bite of spiciness and deeper warmth. Japanese Cherry Blossom is equally as gorgeous however the softer floral doesn’t give me as much as a festive feel as the other two scents, I’m sure I’ll feel more love for this during the Spring then right now in the Winter! I’m kinda sorta hopeful that Bath & Body Works might consider doing these again next year but in scents like Twisted Peppermint and maybe make it pink shimmering goodness?
Each powder is $24.50 USD and comes in a nice elegant box perfect for gift giving! At the moment they are offering a buy two get one free on these so you might want to head online or in store to nab a few for gifts or just to stock up for yourself as they are LE.
All in all I can’t say enough good things about these and believe they are well worth their tiny price tag for such a lovely little package of golden shimmer! They’ll look beautiful on your vanity plus they make rather awesome gifts in my humble opinion! If you’re still kicking yourself for missing out on Guerlain’s Holiday Collection 2007 you can stop and just head into Bath & Body Works! Treat yourself for some golden radiant powder for $24 bucks and call it a day! Totally Muse Approved for purchase and well worth checking out for yourself especially since they are on sale this week!

Lou Bega needed a little bit of Monica, Erica, Rita, Tina, Sandra, Mary, AND Jessica in his life……
Well hello ladies!
but the Muse thinks all you need in yours is a little bit of Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint! I don’t need all the insanity just give me a bit of Twisted Peppermint and we’ll call it a day!
Well ok maybe if you said I need a little bit of John, David, Lee, Benoît, Colin, Mathew, and Robert in my life I’d be all over it like wild fire! I’d hit these!
Well HELLO boys!
Damn I guess we should prob settle on the Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint considering it’s readily available! This isn’t the first time you’ll hear me rave and celebrate the goodness that is Twisted Peppermint so get used to it! It’s going to be a long month full of Twisted Peppermint goodness and the Muse’s love affair with it.
My latest find is the huge, jumbo Bath and Body Works Soap and Lotion Caddy! Score! This duo comes in a cute silver caddy and includes a jumbo size of Bath and Body Works Hand Soap in Twisted Peppermint plus a matching lotion!
The Muse is feeling all Christmas-like every time she washes her hands now! I have one of these caddies in each of the bathrooms in my house plus in my kitchen and one of the larger lotions by my bedside! It’s Twisted Peppermint insanity at the Muse’s house! I even grabbed a few to store away to last me all Winter long when Twisted Peppermint makes it’s exit after the Holiday season is over! This is the first time that Twisted Peppermint has been available in hand wash and hand lotion format so of course I’m all over it! Twisted Peppermint is a twisted cocktail of soft vanilla mixed up with a wintery mix of cooling peppermint! Mmmmm likey!
You can nab the caddy for $15 USD but the Muse got most of hers on sale by using coupons so the most she paid is about $8 USD which is a total deal! Bath and Body Works seems to be extra giving with the coupons this year!
Right now you can nab these caddies for $15 USD plus an additional caddy for 50% off but you can always wait and see what other sales pop up! Last year I remember they had these in Candy Apple and a few other Holiday scents at a whooping 75% off so if you wait you can score a deal or two!
The Muse thinks that Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint should make an appearance on your wishy list this season and it’s definitely Muse Approved for purchase! A Muse staple item all the way!

It was a dark and stormy night….
So the Muse decided to take out her Bath and Body Works Lambie Blanket, curl up on the couch, and watch Fringe episodes that have been on her Tivo for the last three weeks!
As the Muse sat and pondered (and fast forwarded through commercials while wondering if she should forgo Fringe and settle for backed up Graham Norton episodes instead!) she realized how much nicer this year’s Lambie Blanket was from last year’s version. Softer, cuddlier, and with a cute little lamb face embroidered into it!
The Muse realized that this indeed was another fabulous purchase that she scored for a real steal at Bath and Body Works last week! Normally it retails for $35 USD (which is well worth it!) but the Muse happened upon lovely coupons from Bath and Body Works and ended up paying merely $25 USD! Bless be!
The Muse was slowly realizng that after filling her tummy with Korean BBQ tonight that she might not be up for Fringe at all but more along the lines of a long Winters nap thanks to her very comfy blanket……!
The moral of the story is hurry out to your nearest Bath and Body Works and grab yourself the Lambie Blanket and other Lambie goodies before they sell out! The Muse Approves ‘em for purchase! The Muse loves Lambie and thinks you will too!
