Lush Over And Over Bath Bomb Review

I think that the Lush Over And Over Bath Bomb is my new favorite! This citrus wonder is about the most colorful Lush Bath Bomb I have used lately and it smells amazing!

What’s to love?

The new orange, yellow and pink Lush Over And Over has Lime Oil, Cypress Oil and Orris Oil with Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter.

This one was so easy to cut open too. It reminds me a bit of the Golden Egg in the way it cuts. The inside is a gorgeous hot pink.

Over And Over feels a lot more creamy than fizzy when it melts. You can see the really brilliant colors popping off below. They swirl into the water creating a really pretty orange shade when mixed together.

This one made my skin feel amazing and the smell lingers for a bit. I still can’t get  over how much I love the scent on this one. It’s pure orange and lemon. I really want to stock up. I do get two uses because I cut them in half too.

Price: $8.95

In my video I compare theLush Over And Over Bath Bomb to the new Bath & Body Works Fizzes and I do love them both!

*and yes I accidentally call Over And Over the Over And Under in my video! Oops…it does look like Over And Under though : )

The Body Shop NEW Almond Milk & Honey Review

The Body Shop has an all new line called Almond Milk & Honey and I picked up the Calming & Protecting Body Lotion and Soothing & Caring Shower Cream this past week.

They also have Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Restoring Body Butter and Gently Exfoliating Cream Scrub.

What’s to love?

The Almond Milk & Honey line is made from organic almond milk and has no colorants, mineral oil or petroleum.  They are also 100% vegetarian and cruelty free. It is formulated for sensitive skin.

The lotion has a nice sweet scent and it feels very moisturizing without being sticky or heavy and I feel like it absorbs quickly into my skin.

The shower cream is so luxurious with the same sweet scent and it’s got a light lather and really does calm my skin. I feel like this would be great if you got too much sun. My mom has sensitive skin and she’s been loving this product and it is so gentle.

Overall I am super impressed with this new line and I’d like to try the Gently Exfoliating Cream Scrub next.

I share a bit about the Almond Milk & Honey line in my Ulta Haul video too!

It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara Review

Yesterday I reviewed the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder as I won a 5 piece set from the It Girl Superheroes Program so today I wanted to review the It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara.

What’s to love?

I am so fickle when it comes to mascara and often times I use what comes in my subscription boxes because I hate keeping mascara more than a few months so I was thrilled to get a full-sized It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara as a prize.

According to It Superhero Mascara has Powerful lash-lifting polymers, volumizing collagen, strengthening biotin, proteins and peptides combined with Super Black pigment and the Lash-Changing Power Brush work together to coat every lash from base to tips.

 

I am very impressed with this mascara. The wand is simple, but effective. I usually judge  mascara by how easily I can apply it on my bottom lashes and this one did well.

I felt like it did lengthen and volumize my lashes and the lasting power is good. I actually took this photo 5 hours after I applied it. The other thing that I really liked was that I could not feel it on my lashes. It’s not heavy or goopy.

I did not get any flaking although I did have to wipe a little excess off of the wand before I applied it. Overall I’m happy with Superhero, it definitely feels like a high-end product and I’m excited to see if it conditions my lashes over time.

It is Made in Italy and the retail price is: $24

The It Superhero Mascara is part of my It Cosmetics video haul too so do check it out!

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder Review

Today I received my It Girl Superheroes Program prize, you can join here via my link. I received a prize package of 5 It Cosmetics products including the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder which was so exciting! I’ll be reviewing all of the products over the next few weeks.

i1

What’s to love?

I’ve already tried and love the Bye Bye Pores Pressed from the Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection palette and I love it. The Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder is just as nice too.

This fine white powder goes on very easily and makes my face so smooth and soft. According to It is uses “real silk to make your pores disappear from view, and hydrolyzed collagen to smooth away the look of wrinkles.”

I had zero shine and the white shade really blends in nicely. It did not appear white on my skin. The product comes with a white puff but I prefer using a stiffer brush to blend it into more pores. I am really amazing at how much my pores do appeared diminished from Bye Bye Pores.

This product has zero scent.

Retail Price: $24

I also created a video showing off all 5 It Cosmetics products that I got!

LORAC Pirates of the Caribbean Palette Cheek Palette & Lip Duo Review

I got a nice surprise today! My husband got me an Ulta Gift Card for our anniversary so I picked up the LORAC Pirates of the Caribbean Palette Cheek Palette. I am still on the fence about the eye palette.

What’s to love?

The packaging on this one is so pretty with a black box and gold skull. The actual palette is a heavy black cardboard that opens like a book. The palette come with a nice mirror.

The shades are a combo of matte and shimmer and they are so pretty. The color are amazing and very high quality. They are paraben free and infused with anti-aging antioxidants such as pomegranate, acai, and vitamins A, C, and E

Shades:

  • Star Reader (gold opal shimmer)
  • Destined (light peach shimmer)
  • Fortune (soft pearl shimmer)
  • Bold Spirit (cool pink shimmer)
  • Caribbean (dusty rose)
  • Lost Soul (light beige)

l

Overall I am thrilled with this cheek palette.

Price: $30

LORAC Pirates Of The Caribbean Lip Duo

I also swatched the Lipstick from theLipstick/Lip Gloss Duos which are very pretty, creamy and pigmented but I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend $26 for one because I don’t wear a lot of lip gloss. The duel ended tube is really neat though.

I  picked up a few more things from Ulta so I decided to do a small Ulta Haul video!

Bath & Body Works A Thousand Wishes Bath Fizzy Review

A few days ago I did a review and video about the brand new Bath & Body Works Bath Fizzes and I wanted to do a more extensive review based on some of the questions I got so I decided to review the A Thousand Wishes Bath Fizzy.

The round bath fizzies are about the size of a pool ball and appear to be machine made. They are uniform in size, color and design, unlike Lush which are all handmade.

The bath fizzes are very compact and dense and the A Thousand Wishes scent has what appears to be some sort of crystals (in gold) on the surface. The crystals do fall off when rubbed.

When the bath bomb fizzy entered the water it immediately started fizzing like crazy. It has got a ton of fizz going on!

I could actually hear to fizz it was so intense. A Thousand Wishes is a bright hot pink and while it did turn my fingers pink while I was holding it the color pretty much washed off when I was done. Most people probably won’t hold the bath fizzy so I doubt staining would be a problem. It did leave a bit of residue in the sink when I was done but that wiped up quickly without staining.

The crystals on the fizzy stayed put while it was fizzing then slowly started to pop off.

Now keep in mind that I was using a sink so the color is probably a bit more concentrated but I don’t think much more, this one is pretty pink. Once the crystals came off they kind of floated on the surface and the water had a bit of an oily feel (my guess is that it’s from the coconut oil) however once I washed and dried my hands they just felt soft and not oily.

The scent did linger for a long time on my skin. I actually had people asking me all day what that gorgeous scent was! A Thousand Wishes has Pink Prosecco, Sparkling Quince, Crystal Peonies, Gilded Amber and Amaretto Crème.

If you’re not a fan of bright colors I would suggest trying Pretty As A Peach as that one has very little color.

Overall I like these bath fizzes because they correspond to Bath & Body Works scent and because I think they are a decent quality. Lush is definitely in a whole other class so I don’t really want to compare them too much.

So far the Bath & Body Works Bath Fizzes are available in A Thousand Wishes, Japanese Cherry Blossom, Love & Sunshine, Pretty As A Peach, Beautiful Day and Magic In The Air, Hello Beautiful, Endless Weekend and Sweet Pea.

I am wondering if they are coming out with more as there’s is one in the Bath & Body Works advertising that is blue with a pink rose and I’m not sure which one that is.

My fingers crossed they have these in the Christmas scents too!

I also created a video where I demo Japanese Cherry Blossom and Love & Sunshine.

I also copied the ingredient list off of the A Thousand Wishes bath fizzy…
