Bath & Body Works CocoShea Cucumber Collection Review

I am loving the new Bath & Body Works CoCoShea line which consists of 3 scents. Honey, Cucumber and Coconut.

I picked up 2 products from the Cucumber line today and all I can say is…wow, these are fresh.

What’s to love?

The cucumber line really does smell so fresh. I think this one is going to be my new Summer favorite. Here’s what’s in the line.

CocoShea Cucumber Really Refreshing Aloe Gel Lotion – This product is a lotion/gel with a very soothing consistency and because it’s got aloe I can see that it will be great for sunburns too. It has Cocoa Extract, Shea Butter Extract and Cucumber Water and the formula is very light weight. It feels a bit slippery when you first apply it, but then it gets silky. I’m also wondering if it would feel even more refreshing after a little while in the refrigerator.

CocoShea Cucumber Really Refreshing Foaming Scrub – I am such a fan of scrubs and this cucumber one is divine. It’s got a nice rough pumice for cleansing and the gel formula feels so smooth and nice. I used this one on my hand and now they feel so soft.

Also here’s a comparison and demo all three of the CocoShea scrubs on YoutTube.

The CocoShea Cucumber line also includes: Body Lotion, Body Wash and All Over Mist.

Overall I am so excited about having a new cucumber product to add to my beauty routine. This one really is refreshing and cool. Ha! Cool as a cucumber.

I shared my Bath & Body Works CocoShea Haul on YouTube too so do check it out!

It Cosmetics Blurred Lines Lipstick Review

A few weeks ago I reviewed the It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection and I was so impressed that I did a mini It Cosmetics haul from their recent private sale event.

The first product I picked up was the It Cosmetics Blurred Lines Lipstick in Believe and I am so impressed with both the shade and the formula.

What’s to love? 

Being over 40 I was always interested when the It lady (Jamie Kern Lima) w0uld show up on QVC or an infomerical so I’m finally beginning to try out the line.

The Blurred Lines lipstick comes in 10 shades and is supposed to moisturize your lips with “Collagen, Peptides, Hyaluronic Filling Spheres, Shea Butter, Jojoba and Grape Seed Extract“. I will say that my lips do feel amazingly moist and supple with this product. It almost feels like a lip treatment.

It also has a wonderful cookie/chocolate scent that I love. The color that I choose (Believe) is a sheer/shimmer raisiny pink. This is not a high pigment lipstick or a cream. I would call it more translucent or a stain. As you can see on my hand below it isn’t super dark.

However this is exactly the kind of lipstick that I love. It’s moisturizing, sheer, has a beautiful hue and I really do think it makes my lips look younger.

Price: $24 (I did get it on the It Cosmetics website on sale for $16).

If you want to see what else I got in my It Cosmetics Haul check out my YouTube video. I will be reviewing more of these product right here on my blog in the coming weeks.
