The Muse is wondering should she call the poison control center? She just finished scrubbing her lips with The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ but she’s pretty sure as she scrubbed she consumed more than half of the product.
I couldn’t help myself it tastes like sugar and peppermint…..It happens right?
Winter stinks! It makes my cheeks patchy and dry! It makes my legs, elbows, and knees itchy and flaky! And it makes my lips dry which leads to cracking and peeling.
Have no fear I have The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ to save the day….I figure if I don’t use it to scrub away dead skin cells on my lips at the very least I can eat it for a snack.
Julie Andrews told me one of her favorite things is brown paper packages tied up with strings or in this case brown paper boxes tied up with ribbons. The Lip Scrub comes in a tiny brown box tied up pretty with a white ribbon. Open the box up and you’ll find a pot of exfoliating lip scrub for your dry lips!
The formula is a white scrub with plenty of sugar crystals and an amazingly sweet peppermint taste (if you prefer it comes in any number of other flavors like Cinnamon Sugar and Vanilla Bean!). To use, simply scoop a small amount out (or a large amount whatever your pleasure) and scrub onto lips! After scrubbing for a few minutes remove with a tissue and presto your lips are beautiful again! The scrub removes flaky dry skin and preps them for lipstick or a kiss from your sweetie.
I absolutely love this product and it’s a life saver for me as my lips get terribly dry and cracked in the Winter. I follow up my scrub with some of my Lip Slip and my lips are gorgeous again!
The Lip Scrub by Sara Happy is fully Muse Approved for purchase. An absolutely essential item for dry, cracked lips.
But please, don’t try to eat it….

The Muse is terribly obsessed with the Crabree & Evenlyn Distillations Collection. I recently reviewed the Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Revitalize Conditioning Body Lotion which was love at first application. Today I’ll be bringing you a review of the Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Soothing Body Lotion and Gentle Cream Body Wash.
Jump ahead for the deets!
The new Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations line up combines the benefits of 100% essential oils and natural ingredients to create a relaxing blend for both your skin and your senses. Each blend contains no parabens, no mineral oil, and absolutely no additives.
Although I’ve already tried out the Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Soothing Body Lotion that version was a revitalizing blend which contained tart lemons to wake this tired Muse up! The blend I’m currently loving is filled with relaxing lavender and rosewood essential oils which makes it the perfect sleepy time body lotion. The lotion absorbs on contact and melts into skin beautifully leaving behind a lovely herbal scent that’s soothing and healing to my dry skin. The scent is relaxing and quite comforting which makes it an ideal lotion to use just before bed. I’ll save my other lotion for early morning wake up calls!
This is my first time trying Crabtree & Evelyn Distillations Gentle Cream Body Wash. This too is scented with lavender and rosewood essential oils which makes it a perfect companion to layer with my body lotion. The formula is a creamy, dreamy moisturizing body wash that cleanses as it moisturizes my dull, dry skin. The lavender does a wonderful job of soothing my skin and locking in moisture and of course, it’s simply relaxing to breath in the scent while I shower!
I’m really enjoying this new collection and think it’s well worth checking out for yourself!

Scrub away rough elbows and knees with a great beauty budget fine! liiv botanicals Revitalizing Body Scrub from Avon is a brand new scrub that’ll help get your rough bits back into silky soft form in a snap!
Before I jump full into this review I have to say I’m a little itty bitty disappointed that liiv botanicals Revitalizing Body Scrub doesn’t have the awesome smell that liiv Botanicals Moisture Body Boosting Butter did! Darn it! I’m so addicted to the smell of that body butter that I was kinda hopeful the entire line would sport the same scent!
Aside from that minor rant I actually liked this body scrub plus it’s only $8.50 USD, hello scrubbie for less the Muse is your new best friend!
liiv botanicals Revitalizing Body Scrub is a thick foaming scrub that has plenty of scrubbing action to get rough body parts buffed and polished to a silky, smooth finish. The scrub smells fresh with hints of cucumber and botanicals. It cleanses while it scrubs leaving behind super soft, smooth moisturized skin.
I personally liked it alot as my skin is terribly dry right now but I don’t know if I recommend it for anyone with sensitive skin as it has a whole lot of scrubbing action going on so it could be a bit too much for some.
All in all if you’re keeping a tight budget at the moment this is a great wallet-friendly purchase for getting your dry Winter skin ready for the upcoming warmer weather!

The Muse has successfully collected all the Benefit Powders aside from 10. I’ve no idea why I never purchased 10 but it’s def on my to buy before I die list. Aside from 10 I have virtually all the powders even ones that aren’t always so suitable for my skin (Hoola…eep!).
I dunno if it’s the packaging or the awesome quality but I sure do love them!
Jump ahead to view my stash!
For a really long time Benefit Dandelion was my absolute fav of the powders and than along came Benefit Thrrrob which quickly replaced it in my heart and on my favorite list. But without a doubt as of now and possibly always (unless Benefit tops this release) Benefit Coralista is thee most awesome of the Benefit Powder releases.
With the release of Benefit Coralista I think they opened a brand new door for the powder collection and I sincerely hope and pray they embrace the idea of Coralista and use it to make more great powders. If you haven’t tried Coralista yet the Muse highly suggest grabbing some.
All in all the Muse sure is mighty proud of her little stockpile of Benefit Powders!
Which Benefit Powders do you own?
Which are your favs?

When I recently mused about Bare Minerals Glimmer
many of you were quick to chime in about a favorite shade of mine that was pictured in one of my photos.
Ahhh Azure truly a great Glimmer if ever the Muse seen one!
Although many Bare Escentual Glimmers are gorgeous I have a special place in my heart for Azure. Truly a versatile color that works fantastically well with greens to create a perfect popping eye look. A wash of Azure over your lids is sure to create plenty of conversation on “whatever is that color?”
Is it blue? Is it blue-green? Is it teal? Is it aqua?
It’s Azure and stunning to say the least.
Tried and true favorite for the Muse!
Love Bare Escentuals Glimmer in Azure?
What do you cocktail it with?
