What’s to love?

First up, I love the packaging. The plastic bottles have an apothecary feel to them.

I am loving the Peppermint Oil, it smells very true to pure peppermint however it is not a strong lingering scent. I was not crazy about the Lavender. To me the scent wasn’t strong enough.

Here are the 5 ways Bath & Body Works suggests using it:

  1. Spray directly on skin
  2. Mist pillows & bedding
  3. Add to hot or cold compress
  4. Spray into shower
  5. Spritz yoga mat

I like to spray the peppermint on the pillows in my living room for a nice scent. It would be nice if they were a bit stronger but I do the the pureness of the peppermint.

Eco Lips Mongo Kiss Lip Balm Review

I was at Walmart today and in desperate need of some lip balm so I picked up the Eco Lips Mongo Kiss Lip Balm in Peppermint and just WOW!

What’s to love?

The Mongo Kiss lip balm is cruelty free, gluten free, USDA Organic and they have an amazing story!

It’s made from Mongongo Oil that’s from a small village in Zambia, Africa and it comes in 8 scents including:

I have the Peppermint scent and it smells amazing, like pure peppermint. It goes one smooth and makes my lips feel amazing and soft. I also like that the tube is a bit larger than the standard ones.

I think this is my new favorite lip balm!

Bath & Body Works Mint To Be Body Scrub Review

I think I found my all time favorite Bath & Body Works product with the Bath & Body Works Mint To Be Body Scrub. It’s a pure mint sugar scrub with heavy exfolitaion. I ended up getting 4 of these during the Buy 3, Get 4 sale.

What’s to love?

This sugar scrub has extremely large crystals that feel amazing on my skin and they melt into a smooth and creamy lather. The scent is perfect too. It’s pure peppermint oil with no other scents mixed in which I love. I don’t tend to love mint with florals or musky scents. Just give me a pure mint!

This formula also feels amazing on my feet and leaves them smooth and minty! Did I mention how much I love this mint scent : )

Aveda Rosemary Mint Review

I have been a fan of the Aveda Rosemary Mint collection for years so I was thrilled when my husband got me the Rosemary Mint Shampoo, Conditioner and Hand & Body Wash for my birthday last month.

What’s to love?

The Aveda Rosemary Mint is one of my comfort scents. I am a huge fan of mint and this scent is a strong one. It’s a combination of “certified organic rosemary and peppermint with other pure flower and plant essences” and it reminds me of Christmas.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo – I use the shampoo when I feel like my hair needs a deep cleaning. This one makes my scalp tingle in a really good way and the smell from the lather is so strong and amazing. It really does wake me up as they say on the Aveda website.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Conditioner  The conditioner is equally strong in mint smell and it does a great job detangling my hair. I use this shampoo a few times a month for shine too.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Hand and Body Wash – This body wash is so fresh and minty and really does a good job of waking me up too. I love using it in the morning for aroma therapy, the mint smell is so refreshing. It’s got a nice lather and rinses clean too.

I also really want the new Aveda Rosemary Mint Body Polish. I’ve heard really good things about this gentle exfoliator.

The Aveda line is Made in the USA.

Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub Review

One of the items I received in my Target January Beauty Box was the New Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub in Fresh Peppermint!

What’s to love?

Lately I am all over lip scrubs. I’ve tried a few over the last 6 months and am so happy with the results and this new one from Chapstick is no exception.

The Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub contains Vitamin E and Coconut Oil for lip conditioning. I rubbed the white chunky sugar mixture onto my wet lips for a few seconds then wiped it off with a wash clothe and my lips looked and felt so much softer.

And the scent! Oh my gosh, the scent. I love peppermint and this lip scrub has the most perfectly creamy fresh peppermint smell ever. It’s on my desk right now and I’ve been taking a whiff all day.

Overall I’m now addicted to lip scrubs…which is a good thing…I think!

Price: $4.99

ChapStick Total Hydration Review

Back in October I reviewd the ChapStick Total Hydration Moisture +Tint and loved it so today I picked up the ChapStick Total Hydration without the tint in Cooling Peppermint and my lips are so happy!

cs

What’s to love?

Now that Winter is hear I’m obsessed with lip protection! I feel like the ChapStick Total Hydration is kind of the Web 2.0 of lip balms.

The ChapStick Total Hydration formula is a 3 in 1 and it’s supposed to moisturize, renew and transform chapped lips and I’d say it wins on all three. I’ve been using the Cooling Mint scent for a few days and it feels amazing on my lips. It’s smooth, light and does not leave my lips sticky (I hate that feeling).

I also love the scent too, it’s a barely there creamy mint and there’s no tingle (for those of you who are not a fan of that sensation).

You can also get this formula is Coconut Hydration, Wild Acai Berry, Soothing Oasis and Sweet Peach. These scents have zero tint so I also picked one up for my husband and daughter.

Price: $2.99
