Beauty: Shea Moisture Body Scrub

I hate the thought of dead skin on my body, also spending all morning in a morgue surrounded by fluids, and other things I don’t want to mention I need a good body scrub.  Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hand and Body Scrub seems like the best thing right now. 

SheaMoisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Hand & Body Scrub is a hydrating body care solution formulated with natural ingredients designed to nourish and repair your skin. Coconut Oil used in the formulation of this gluten free body scrub is rich in Vitamin E which quells dryness by creating moisture barriers and helping replenish lost oils. Hibiscus flowers act as emollients to soothe dry, irritated skin while Songyi Mushrooms even your skin tone. Certified Organic Shea Butter provides nourishing moisturization to make your skin supple and oh-so-soft!

As you can see I’ve been using this for a while, and I absolutely love it. The smell is heavenly, and while it feels a little harsh the first time I used it, it leaves my skin feeling incredible. My skin is so soft and doesn’t feel tight or harsh, in fact it felt a bit moisturized. 

The scrub lasted me quite a while, and I loved using it. I think it’s the perfect scrub for the season, and it’s affordable. 

*Cruelty Free* Taking my bath up a level with Bumble Road Bathbombs*


*Thanks to Bumble Road for sending these amazing bathbombs*

July’s over and with it, hopefully, the insanely hot weather. July was too hot with ever weekend being the 100s. Can I say I am so over this heat? Sweating is not my thing, and my skin seems to be taking the brunt of this dryness.

What I need, or my skin needs, is a refresher and I think I found the solution. While I love LUSH, as you all know, I don’t have a bottomless money pit (oh how I wish I did). So I’ve been looking for inexpensive ways to take my bath to the next level.

I think I found it with Bumble Road. Their bath bombs are loaded with essential oils, shea butters and espon salts to give your body the exact treatment it needs. This set comes with 4 lovely bath bombs;

Luscious Lavender

This has Lavender essential oils as well as shea butter and epson salt. This felt like heaven on my over worked skin. My bathwater turned a lovely shade of lavender and made me feel pretty (which is kinda hard to do lately). The fragrant is there but not overly powerful, which I like, so no nasal irritation for me. It was enough to have me relax with a audio book in the background. Love it.

Really Rose

This beauty smells oh so good! It has little rose buds that float along in the bath with you, which is a great start to a date night let me tell you. The water turns a pretty pink shade, which makes the atmosphere a bit romantic and girly. Light some candles, put on a romance in the background and close your eyes. This will be amazing!

Orange Creamsicle

I love Citrus smells, and this one is absolutely great. The little dandelions are great, and this makes your skin smell oh so good. It did make me slightly hungry, though. This is perfect for after a workout day when you really need that sweaty feeling to just go away, and your muscles just need a break.

Yellow Grapefruitlicious

This yellow monster has Lemon and Grapefruit essentially oils. The bomb brings fun to the tub with a bright yellow color that will be sure to brighten up your day. I suggest if you get gloomy from a rainy day, or you just had a really stressful day at work or school, you should definitely use this.

This is a great alternative to LUSH especially if your like me and you do not have the money to purchase a bath bomb. This smells just as nice, makes your skin feel refreshed and new, while also providing a fun and relaxing environment.

You can purchase these on Amazon HERE, or directly from the Bumble Road Website HERE

 

Yes, I know. More Bath Stuff. Dorian Grey; Luxury Sea Salt Soak

2017-05-01 14.17.59

Try saying Sea Salk Soak Ten times fast, it’s a bit of a tongue twister, what doesn’t get my tongue twisted is relaxing in a Luxurious soak after a long day at work. I got saw this Dorian Grey Bath and Body Collection on my Jane app and I knew I had to get it since it was on sale and I want to try different bath products. Don’t get me wrong I still absolutely love LUSH but I want to be adventurous and try new things

 

I am so glad I did too, I got this soak in Honey Mango and it smells devine (when I pair it with my Manga Salsa Yankee Candle, I am in Mango Heaven). The Sea Salt Soak refreshes my body while calming my nerves and de-stressing me after a long day of dealing with rude people.

 

The one thing I will say is that the soak does turn my bath water a suspiciously yellow color that I am pretty sure that if anyone sees it would probably think I did something disgusting. Good thing I am the only one in the bathroom when I bathe…

 

I’ll stop now before this post turns weird.

 

What have you been bathing with lately?

MMMelting Marshmellow Moment Bath Oil Review

This was recommended to me by one of the Lush Assistants. Compared to You’ve been mangoed I can tell you this is not as moisturizing, however that does not mean that it’s lacking. I just soaked longer than I would have normally. Also the smell is slightly sweeter than I would have liked, but that is just my personal prefrence. With the other oil I was able to break it in half and get 2 uses out of it, but this one you need to use to whole piece. I am not hating on this at all, quite the opposite, I really enjoyed this. This still was very moisturizing and the smell is relaxing despite not being the biggest sweet fan.

This turned the water a very pretty rose gold color that I was at first very worried that it would stain my tub, but I had nothing to worry about. I felt extremely pretty and feminine soaking in this oil. I had wished I used this on a date night and not just in the middle of the day on my day off. This gave me some big confidence and the strength that I needed to help me get over my health slump that I have been in.

So try this baby out if you need to get your femininity back and just give yourself that sensual boost that we need every once in a while.
