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.
I am so excited that Bath & Body Works is now selling their Fall 2017 line up. They have 5 scents (3 are new and 2 are from last year…I think). First up on my list to review is the Champagne Apple & Honey.
What’s to love?
Champagne Apple & Honey has a blend of Pink Lady Apple, Sparkling Champagne & Jasmine Honey and the formula is made with pure honey.
To me this one smells pretty much like straight on fall apple with a hint of sugar. The Jasmine Honey is light and this is not a floral scent. I love that Bath & Body Works has such authentic apple scents.
Champagne Apple & Honey so far comes in Body Cream, Fine Fragrance Mist, Shower Gel and my new favorite the Whipped Body Butter. As you can see in the photo above the Whipped Body Butter packaging is so cute with a pop-up apple cut-out on the front. These are going to make great gifts!
Bring on Fall!
I did a big Bath & Body Works Fall haul today and created a YouTube video so do take a look!
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!
I’ve read the review of Cosmic Warrior and while a few people think it smells like wet dog I’m going to differ on that.
Cosmic Warrior is made of Kaolin, Fresh Green Grapes, Fresh Free Range Eggs, Honey, Corn Starch, Fresh Garlic and Tea Tree Oil and the scent I pick up most is the garlic and I didn’t find it to be that offensive.
I actually love this mask. I apply a thin coat to my face and it dries to an almost clear glaze which I think is from the eggs. I could not smell it on my face at all. After 10 minutes I wiped it clean and my face looked amazing. I feel like it works on my oily areas and replenished my dry spots and my pores looked mush smaller which was great.
This is a fresh mask so you have to keep it in the fridge and it only lasts for about 2 weeks.
I would buy Cosmic Warrior again…and I love the name!
I picked up a tube of the New Sephora Lip Balm & Scrub in Honey Lip Scrub (exfoliating & smoothing scrub). It also comes in a Lip Balm in the following flavors: Goji (nourishing & protecting), Rose (nourishing & shining), Coconut (nourishing & soothing), Tangerine (nourishing & toning) and Almond (nourishing & moisturizing).
What’s to love?
This is an interesting product in that I wasn’t sure if it was a balm, a scrub or both because I ordered it online. So afterwards I figured out that the Honey variety is the only one that’s a lip scrub. The other flavors are lip balms. This was actually pretty confusing on the Sephora page.
Aside from the confusion I did like this product. It’s got a light honey scent and I did feel a nice very, very mild exfoliation when I applied it to my lips. This isn’t like a traditional lip scrub with large sugar crystals but a very mild feeling scrub.
Once the product was on my lips I pressed them together for a few minutes and wiped it off, although I think you could just keep it on it’s so light. My lips did feel very moisturized afterwards which was nice.
It is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.
First up is the CoCoShea Honey and oh my gosh this scent is amazing. I am a huge fan of anything honey so when I saw this morning that Bath & Body Works had a new honey scent I ran right up to my store. I have a feeling this is going to be my Summer favorite.
What’s in the CocoShea Honey Collection?
Bath and Body Works actually had more of the CocoShea honey products in the store then they had online. I got the…
CocoShea Honey Ultra Conditioning Sugar Scrub – The sugar scrub smells so amazing. It’s got a sweet honey scent but it’s a bit earthy too. The scrub has Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Pure Honey ands it’s supposed to moisturize, replenish, soften and smooth. I tried it on my had it it made my skin very soft.
CocoShea Honey Ultra Conditioning Bath & Shower Jelly –This is a completely new product for Bath & Body Works and it’s so cool It’s a jelly that lathers into a super soft foamy for use in the bath and shower.
CocoShea Honey Ultra Conditioning Body Butter – I am a huge fan of the Bath & Body Works Body Butter and this one is top notch too. It has a fresh honey scent and the thick cream so wonders on my dry skin.
They also have a CocoShea Honey Body Lotion, Body Wash.
Overall the word that comes to mind for the entire Bath & Body Works CocoShea collection is fresh. I am so impressed with this line.
I got the Clinique Almost Lipstick in one of my beauty boxes and it’s a really unique product that creates a shade based on your lips.
What’s to love?
I had never heard of the Almost Lipstick before I got my sample. it comes in just two shade…Pink Honey and Dark Honey and they both have a sheer finish
They theory is that the “Transparent pigment merges with the unique, natural tone of your lips to create something wonderful“. I really love the color it created on my lips. It’s a dark raisiny pink shade. It feels like a lipstick/lip balm hybrid and it’s very moisturizing on my lips. It’s lighter and more transparent than lipstick and but darker than lip balm. I feel like it could use a lip liner too.
The full-sized product comes in a beautiful sleek thin silver tube that’s a twists up and it has zero scent. I feel like this is a great daily wear or casual lip product. It’s not super long lasting though. I had to reapply after eating which I didn’t mind.
Overall I’m impressed and would like to the the Pink Honey shade.
