Bath & Body Works has a new line of 5-in-1 Essential Oils that come in Pachouli, Peppermint, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Eucalyptus. They are alcohol free. I picked up the Peppermint and Lavender oils. The price is $13.50.

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 : )

What’s to love?

I am completely in love with this new Bubble Bath & Body Wash! It’s thick and lathers up really well. It also left my skin so soft. It has Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Aloe.

I believe this formula will be available in Twisted Peppermint, Vanilla Bean Noel and Winter Candy Apple scents for Christmas.

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.

rmm

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

Lush Outback Mate Soap Review

I have been wanting to get my hands on some Outback Mate Soap for awhile now but I forget to order it this time and I haven’t been to my Lush store in awhile but today I got a sample piece in my latest holiday order and I’m thrilled! I must get my hands on this one soon.

om

What’s to love?

The color of Outback Mate soap is amazing. It looks like a geode or the ocean and every piece is different. I love the Lush glycerine soaps and they smell amazing and moisturize my skin so well. Eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass oil make up the scent of Outback Mate and it smells amazing both wet and dry. I also did a very unscientific poll in my house and both the men and women love this scent. This might be a great soap to get your guy for Christmas.

One note is that Outback Mate bleeds blue everywhere which I find kind of cool but I wanted to let everyone know that it is a bit messy.

You could seriously just use this soap as art for your bathroom it’s so pretty. I also wanted to share how this soap is made. Lush created a neat YouTube video that really shows the quality and art that goes into making Outback Mate!

Now I just need to let my husband know I want to full sized bar for Christmas!

Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint Shea & Sparkle Scrub Review

I’m on a bit of Bath & Body Works holiday overload but there are so many neat new products that I want to share with all of you like the Twisted Peppermint Shea & Sparkle Scrub which I can’t find online yet. I’m wondering if our store got a sneak preview of the new holiday products early because there are so many new things I’ve never seen before.

OK, now let’s talk about glitter for a minute before I review this awesome product! I kid you not when I say that it’s like a glitter bomb went off at Bath & Body Works this year. Everything is full of shimmer and that’s fine with me because there’s nothing I like more than glitter. Yep! I’m a middle-aged mom who loves anything glittery. Maybe it’s my ’80’s glam rock roots or maybe I just like shiny things! It’s probably both.

What’s to love?

I love peppermint almost as much as I love glitter. It’s funny, people either love peppermint or hate peppermint. I happen to love it and after Nov. 1st I even carry candy canes in my purse to suck on when I’m stressed out so it’s no surprise that I love the Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint line.

Aside from the amazing smell the new Twisted Peppermint scrub smells amazing and has a nice grit that worked great on exfoliating my skin. It’s also got little fleck of gold and silver glitter for a super festive experience. I also love how this formula moisturizes my skin. I’ve always love the B & BW’s Shea butter  line for helping my dry Winter skin.

You can evens see the glitter on my hand swatch. It’s beautiful and would make a great gift.

Price: $14.50 (but be sure to watch for sales and use coupons).

 

Lush Maypole Soap Review

Woah Lush Maypole! It may look like a slice of watermelon but it smells like sweet, sweet peppermint.

maypole

Why Maypole is my favorite new Lush soap!

I’ve got a thing for mint, year round and even worse at Christmas. Maypole delivers on the mint scent x10. I could seriously wear this around my neck and smell it all the time. The lather on this bar is so smooth too. Like butter (mint).

Oh and it’s got Canadian Maple Syrup and it’s Vegan. LOVE!
