Bath & Body Works A Thousand Wishes Review

I’ve been a fan of the Bath & Body Works A Thousand Wishes scent since it came out. To me it’s a mix of fruit, sugar and champagne. It’s an elegant scent but can be used for everyday.

According to Bath & Body Works it has notes of Sparkling Champagne, Twinkling Star Fruit, Golden Quince,Crystal Peonies, Purple Freesia, Gilded Amber, Almond Crème, Sugared Sandalwood and Velvet Musk.

Bath & Body Works A Thousand Wishes Ultra Shea Body Cream

The thick white body cream is super creamy and does wonders from my skin. I use a little in the morning as a moisturizer and for fragrance. I’m not a huge fan or perfume but love the scented creams. I also love the packaging, it’s a pink flower and purple ribbon against a pink foil sparkle backdrop. It looks so pretty on my make-up table!

Bath & Body Works A Thousand Wishes Diamond Shimmer Mist

The Diamond Shimmer Mist was new for 2016 and is 8.6 oz spray bottle that contains a thick sparkly pink and silver formula. The Diamond Shimmer Mist takes some getting used to. I only use a half-squirt as a little goes a long way. I sprayed my hand about 3 times to show how thick this spray is. It’s loaded with silver sparkle.

After spraying a half-squirt I rub it into my skin for a light scent and sparkle. The scent is really strong at first because this product contains alcohol. However once the alcohol evaporates you get s nice fragrance. I think this is one of the best ways to add sparkle to your skin!

A Thousand Wishes also comes in Eau de Parfum, Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Fragrance Mist, Foaming Sugar Scrub, Creamy Body Wash, Wallflowers and the 3-Wick Candle.

Skittles Lip Smackers. Bring on the fruit!

The 10-year-old kid in me is all over these holiday Skittles Lip Smackers. When I was young my mom always got me the huge Bonne Belle Lip Gloss in my stocking and I loved it so I try to load up my kids stocking with something similar.

What’s to love?

Lip Smackers are Made in the USA and the Skittles variety smells amazing. It’s like having fruit in your pocket, or in this case a cute holiday tin that you can use after the lip gloss is gone. You get 4 lip balms in this set in Grape, Lemon, Green Apple and Strawberry.

The Lip Smacker Brand always leaves my lips so smooth and tasty and I think these are great for people of all ages. They are nostalgic and cute and I just love them.

They also had a tin of the Coca-Cola flavors which I may have to go back and get!

This set came from Target and was $5.99.

Bath & Body Works Sugar Plum Swirl Review

I think I’m finally done with my Bath & Body Works shopping for Christmas. My latest finds are from the Sugar Plum Swirl line.

What’s to love?

The Sugar Plum Swirl scent comes in the Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Fine Fragrance Mist, Ultra Shea Body Cream, Shea & Sparkle Scrub. I got the Body Cream and the Sparkle Scrub which is a beautiful blue shade with major sparkle.

I love that Bath & Body Works has another scent that isn’t traditional red, green and peppermint scented. Sugar Plum Swirl is a wonderful mix of fruits that include plum, tangerine, grapefruit, pear, nectarine and lots of sweetness. I love this scent!

The body cream is a great moisturizer and I’ve been using the sugar scrub now for a dew weeks and it’s done wonders for my skin. I hope they bring this back in the Spring with new scents.

Overall Sugar Plum Swirl is one of my fruity favorites!

Check out the new Bath & Body Works Bath Fizzes for Spring 2017 too.

Lush Layer Cake Soap Review

I ordered up a slice of the Lush Layer Cake soap with my holiday order because we received a sample last time and loved it although we have a bit of a mystery as to what colors go with what scents. Lush cuts you a slice off of a huge chuck of soap and what you get is always a surprise.

The layers are grape, orange, blueberry, pineapple and raspberry juice and the colors of the entire soap creation are yellow, green, orange, purple and red but I’m not sure what scent goes with what color although I do love it!

What’s to love?

First up I am thrilled that I got red and green Christmas colors, I wonder if Lush planned it that way! The bar smells amazing and very fruity and honestly I can’t discern what particular fruit my bar is but that’s OK, I love it anyway.

The main ingredients are fresh orange juice, glycerine , rapeseed 0il and coconut which I found to lather and moisturize well.

I was actually surprised that this soap got kind of Meh reviews on the Lush site. I actually love the scent, found it to last and loved the lather. Perhaps they reworked the formula?
