In the Muse’s Purse: Bath and Body Works Cold & Flu Therapy Instant Aromatherapy

in+the+muse%27s+purse


You know my mum thinks that the solution to life, the universe, and everything is bottled up in a jar of Vicks Vaporub.

300px Vicks vaporub1


For serious.

Anything that ails me can normally be solved by rubbing myself with Vicks Vaporub. I dunno, that’s what my mother told me.

If I have a cold rub some Vicks on my chest, if I’m coughing rub some Vicks on my chest, if I have a sore throat rub some Vicks on my chest….what can I say my mum is either a nutter or kickin’ it old skool. So I do admit that she has a point here. I do feel heaps better after a rub down with Vicks Vaporub but mmmm walking out of my house and going to my office with a bunch of greasy petroleum under my nose and on my chest is a tad bit on the strange side.

Have no fear! I have just the solution for fighting off the flu and cold season with an easy to use product that’s in the Muse’s purse!

Jump ahead to check it out!

Guest starring in the Muse’s Purse today is Body Works Cold & Flu Therapy Instant Aromatherapy Roll On!

Bath+and+Body+Works+Cold+%26+Flu+Therapy+Instant+Aromatherapy+4


Bath+and+Body+Works+Cold+%26+Flu+Therapy+Instant+Aromatherapy+5


w00t! Portable cold control!

What is it?

It’s an all-natural roll on that contains a blend of eucalyptus, basil, spearmint, wild mint, lavender, cedar left, and essential oils. Shake up the bottle a bit and roll onto the base of your throat and around the chest are, now breath deeply to combat the unwanted effects of your stuffy noise brought on by the cold, wintery weather!

Bath+and+Body+Works+Cold+%26+Flu+Therapy+Instant+Aromatherapy+7


Don’t you love this? I totally dig having a portable roll on for clearing up my stuffy head and nose. I can’t concentrate when I’m constantly sniffling and this does the trick at clearing up my stuffy nose and allowing me to breath easy again! Pure perfection in a little roll on bottle!

Let’s face it, carrying around a jar of Vicks Vaporub is not an option so get the next best, budget friendly option (this is only $5 bucks) to tote around in your purse with you! Bath and Body Works Cold & Flu Therapy Instant Aromatherapy Roll On is in the Muse’s purse and remains there until the warm weather sets in!

Bath+and+Body+Works+Cold+%26+Flu+Therapy+Instant+Aromatherapy+9


Grab one at www.bathandbodyworks.com

Tried this?

Love it?

What are some of the ways you cure a stuffy nose?

Soap & Glory Skincare Collection Now at Boots

The Muse is an official member of the Anglophile support group, actually she’s the president. I’m quite British (even though in my next life I plan on being Asian) so of course I love all good things Brit-related.

Being all British-like I have a special fondness for the Soap & Glory Collection available at Boots so of course I’m all excited about the release of the Soap & Glory Skincare line up!

Soap & Glory has already established itself in the bath and body world with it’s quirky collection of fun, fabulous scrubs, body washes, lotions, and potions. Soap & Glory has even breached some of the cosmetic world with interesting little products deemed with funky names like “mother pucker” (gotta love that one right?). Now Soap & Glory branches out and pushes the line to add a skincare collection to it’s fantastic collection!

Count me intrigued!

soap+%26+glory+skincare

I imagine I’ll be much more British if I start using Soap & Glory Skincare dontcha think?

Jump ahead to read more!

Although we are privy to Soap & Glory in the states courtesy of our friends at Target, don’t expect to see Soap & Glory Skincare pop up in store anytime soon. One can hope it’ll arrive on our shores soon but the Muse suspects it’ll be months before it pops up around here!

The good news, if you happen to be British (Lucky you!), you can pop over to Boots and start spending your hard earned cash on the entire line. Soap & Glory is typical buy two get one free and this sale is extended to some of the skincare line up so that’s always a nice little extra when purchasing!

Soap & Glory Glow Job Daily Radiance Moisture Lotion
is an everyday moisturizier with bronzeburst beads built in. What the hell are Bronzeburst beads? Whoa sounds awesome! Maybe that means it acts as a tinted moisturizer for skin? I wants to try this!


Soap & Glory Dr Spot Invisible Spot Fighting Gel will get your face back into the game with clog clearing salicylic and lactic acids!


Soap & Glory Clean Mary Cleansing Milk is a creamy cleanser for whisking away makeup!


Soap & Glory Catch a Wrinkle in Time Age Avoiding Day Moisturizer will erase all those pesky little lines and make you look fabulous again!

Soap & Glory A Change of Face Skincare Starter Kit has a little bit of this and a little bit of that so you can test the waters before diving into the entire line!



Soap & Glory The Greatest Scrub of All Self-Activating Facial Smoother Exfoliator
will refine all those pesky little pores!


Soap & Glory The Greatest Scrub of All Self-Activating Facial Smoother Exfoliator will scrub it all away and polish skin to perfection!


Soap & Glory Supereyes, Supereyes Moisturising Eye Gel contains a kick of caffeine to depuff eyes while reducing fine lines.


Grab some Soap & Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths when you want it all off in a hurry!



Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Super Rejuvenating Face Serum
will rejuvenate that tired face and make it glow!


Soap and Glory Mighty Mouth Lipcare & Plumping Kit has it all to plump that pout up and bring sexy back!


As you can see the line up is quite extensive which really pleases me to no end as the economy is under such distress lately that variety in stores is disappearing quickly so it’s nice to see that Soap & Glory has taken the effort to extend it’s line and introduce something new for us all to enjoy!

I’ll be picking up a few pieces from the line myself so I’ll have a review up shortly about them. The exchange rate is currently quite good on sterling and prices are ranging from $6-$17 USD with the gift set topping at around $28 USD. As you can sterling is converting considerably better and the prices aren’t much different (or even cheaper in some cases) from what you’d pay here in the US for the Soap & Glory line but of course airmail costs factor in as well.

As I mentioned Soap & Glory Skincare isn’t currently available yet stateside but hopefully we’ll see it soon! For now if you’d like the collection visit your local Boots or www.boots.com if you’re a UK residence. If you happen to live outside the UK, as the Muse does, you’ll have to find a friendly Brit to do your purchasing for you!

Any Brits try this collection yet?

Do share in the comment field!

Anyone wanting to try it?

Tell the Muse!
