The Lush Giant Golden Wonder Bath Bomb (kind of)!

I think a reindeer may have tromped on my Giant Golden Wonder Bath Bomb! Either that or it was kidnapped by a house elf and destroyed by an errant mythical creature before it was brought back to my doorstep by Severus Snape via Apparition. (I was kind of hoping that was the explanation).

The good news is that I have contacted Lush customer service and am sure I will hear from them soon. The second piece of good news is that you get to see what the inside of a Giant Golden Wonder Bath Bomb looks like! As you can see it has a blue center with pink and yellow pieces inside and it smells amazing!

UPDATE! The amazing people at Lush are sending me a new Giant Golden Wonder Bath Bomb!

Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Erase Case Review

The Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Erase Case makes for a super cute sticking stuffer as it’s a cute zip up pencil case with 4 Boi-ing concealer products inside.


This set contains:
– 0.05 oz/ 1.5 mL Boi-ing airbrush concealer sheer-to-medium coverage concealer
– 0.05 oz/ 1.5 mL Boi-ing hydrating concealer sheer coverage, lightweight concealer

I am a huge fan of the Boi-ing Concealer as it gives me amazing coverage. I was also thrilled to be able to try out the rest of the Boi-ing line with this pencil. You can choose shade No. 1 or No. 2. I use No. 1 as it’s lighter.

Price: $26

Cargo Cosmetics Releases NEW Collectible Star Wars Mirrors

Being the big Star Wars nerd that I am I was thrilled to see that Cargo Cosmetics has a new Star Wars collection that includes 4 collectible mirrors. I saw them up close and personal at Kohl’s today and I’ve added the Princess Leia to my Christmas list.

There are 4 designs including:

  • Leia Organa
  • BB-8
  • Rey
  • Captain Phasma

I took one our of the box at Kohl’s and the artwork is really beautiful. I’d love carrying this around in my purse or make-up bag and they are neat collectors items for people (like me) who are huge Star Wars fans.

Bath & Body Works Frosted Coconut Snowball Is Back For 2017

I am so happy that Bath & Body Works is bringing back some of the 2016 scents like Gingerbread Latte and Sugar Plum Swirl. Another scent that’s making an appearance is Frosted Coconut Snowball. So far they have the Body Cream, Shower Gel and Fine Fragrance Mist in Frosted Coconut Snowball.

What’s to love?

The packaging on Frosted Coconut Snowball is a snowman or holiday design with a blue background which is nice for people who want to decorate with colors other than the traditional red and green.

According to the label Frosted Coconut Snowball has notes of Frosted Coconut, North Pole Vanilla, Winter Freesia, Snowkissed Woods and Spun Sugar.

To me it smells like coconut, Hawaii and a bit of vanilla/mint.

Bath & Body Works Gingerbread Latte Is Back for 2017

Last year Bath & Body Works introduced Gingerbread Latte and I was super disappointed that it was not back for 2017. Well much to my surprise (and delight) I found that they now have 3 Gingerbread Latte products on their website including the Body Lotion, Shower Gel and Fine Fragrance Mist. Now if they’d just bring back the sugar shower scrub!

What’s to love?

It smells just like freshly baked gingerbread and coffee. It’s also got a little vanilla and a fruity smell in the mix…it smells good enough to eat and it one of my favorite scents.

According to Bath & Body Works it’s a blend of Santa’s gingerbread, frosted pear & brown sugar.

Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash

I love the Origins line and the Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash and just picked up another tube! I had reviewed this product last year and I am still a huge fan.

First up I like the updated packaging, it looks clean and artsy. The product itself is one of my favorite staples and at $23 for 5.0 Fl.Oz. it’s a deal as it lasts me about 6 months. I like to mix this in my weekly routine.

It has Broad Leaf Kelp Extract, Wheat Protein and Tourmaline which discourages excess oil production and I find that it works when my face is feeling greasy.

When Tourmaline crystals warm, as they do when rubbed onto the skin, they become positively charged at one end and negatively charged on the other. These energizing crystals are said to be effective at detoxifying and brightening skin while helping improve its vitality.

The scent is Bergamot, Spearmint and Lavender which smells amazing.
