Bath & Body Works CocoShea Honey Shower Jelly Review

The Bath & Body Works CocoShea Honey Shower Jelly has been a favorite of mine since I discovered it a few years ago. I pick one up every once in a while because it does wonders on dry Winter skin. It has vitamin-packed cocoa butter and rich, moisturizing shea butter.

What’s to love?

This CocoShea Shower Jelly is pretty thick and I am easily able to grab scoop on my bath pouf. The lather is amazing and so soft and the scent is out of this world. It has a very distinctive honey scent that lingers after a bath of shower. It’s also pretty fun to play with!

The price is $16.50 but I got this one on sale as the CocoShea products were 2 for $20 this week and I had a 20% off coupon which brought the price down to $8 so it pays to wait for a sale or coupon.

My YouTube story continues (I’m back part-time)

LOL…after only 7 days without a YouTube channel I’m beginning to miss it a bit. I don’t miss the filming, lights, editing, twice daily uploads and my house being a disaster so I decided to start over and scale back. I wasn’t making enough revenue that it matters that I lost my monetization. YouTube revenue is really, really low these days. So I started fresh and it feels good!

I do really, really love Bath & Body Works and Lush, plus Easter is coming up which means that I’m going to be wanting to do some sink demos of those gorgeous bath bombs. The sink demos were actually my favorite part of YouTube! So I’m back in a much more part-time role. I’ll have time to finish my laundry, relax, play with the dog in addition to my day job and not get burned out.

I’d like to thank everyone for their kind words and appreciate all the comments.

I am loving the new Bath & Body Works GIANT Eiffel Tower Pocketbac Holder that I picked up in my store. This 5 + inch Pocketbac holder is perfect for your desk. You can keep your hands germ-free at home or at work and it lights up!

Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Picking Review

One of my favorite scents from the Fall 2018 Bath & Body Works line is Pumpkin Picking (although for some reason I keep reading it Pumpkin Pickling)!

The notes include Cinnamon-Spiced Cider, Fresh Pumpkin Pie and Hayrides to the Patch. To me Pumpkin Picking is the perfect mix of spicy and sweet with less cinnamon than Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. I swear I also pick up a hit of marshmallow in this one. I’m starting to like it more than Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin this year!

Pumpkin Picking comes in:

  • Ultra Shea Body Cream
  • Fine Fragrance Mix
  • Shower Gel

I also love the simple orange design with the gold and bronze accents. Very classy and pretty for Fall.

Bath & Body Works Fall Foaming Hand Sanitizer Review

Last year Bath & Body Works came out with the Foaming Hand Sanitizer and I love them! I prefer the foam over the Pocket-Bac Gel. I find the foam to be much more moisturizing on my hands and I love the scents!

I picked up the following Fall and Halloween Foaming Hand Sanitizer scents:

  • Pumpkin Cupcake (baked pumpkin, whipped vanilla frosting & golden honey)
  • Afternoon Apple Picking (crisp apple, succulent pear & cinnamon)
  • Purrfect Pumpkin (Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin)
  • Vampire Blood (red berries, night blooming jasmine & petrifying plum)

The Fall & Halloween Foaming Hand Sanitizers also come in:

  • Crisp Morning Air (fresh pine, juniper & juicy pear)
  • Ghoul Friend (dark strawberries, ghostly peony & spine chilling citrus)

Here is what the foam looks like! It’s super smooth and creamy! A small dab is all you need. I always keep one in my purse and they last about 2 weeks with 3 people using it almost every day.
