Yo, LUSH Karma solid perfume…I love you!

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve splurged on an actual perfume. My nose isn’t even attracted to them anymore. I am now a fan of fragrances that have more of natural and woodsy scent. Plus, I find that they are better for me health-wise. Traditional fragrances tend to mess with my allergies a bit. I didn’t WANT to purchase this solid perfume from LUSH. But alas, my favorite LUSH guy convinced me to…

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this fragrance. If I could bottle my personality up in a scent, Karma would be it. It’s subtle but strong. It isn’t demanding but it leaves a mark. It lingers, it’s interesting and it definitely can’t be compared to any other scent. It’s original and unique. It has patchouli and citrus notes and I can see how many people don’t like it. It isn’t your average fragrance. And I think that’s why I love it so much.

The solid perfume is long-lasting and perfect for traveling. I’ve been using it for a month or so now and I’ve still got a big chunk left. Not bad for $9.95. And because many LUSH fans realize how awesome Karma is, it also comes in a body cream, bubble bar, body powder and soap. But I like it best on the wrists and on my neck. You know you want to try it. Snag it from the LUSH website or take a stroll to your neighborhood LUSH store.

LUSH Bath Bomb: Dragon’s Egg…yummy!

Not that I actually tasted this thing. That would be bad. VERY bad. Watching this bath bomb spin around in the tub reminded me of orange sherbet. My Grandma in Miami and I would eat that ALL the time.

Doesn’t that look cool?

Dragon’s Egg is a citrus-y bath bomb with notes of lemon and bergamot. It smells divine but what it DOES is even better. After spinning and twirling and going from color to color, it oozes beautiful gold glitter everywhere.

It was small enough to where it didn’t irritate my skin but left me in a beautiful tub of orange water. I loved this one. It may be AS good as my Twilight bath bomb.

Have you tried Dragon’s Egg bath bomb yet?

Kiss My Face Olive & Aloe Soap. But it’s not purty.

I’m a total Kiss My Face fan but I’m on the fence about this soap.

It has a grassy/plant-y smell and the color of the bar isn’t all that attractive. The saving grace of this soap, however, is how good it makes my skin feel. And it contains so few ingredients that you don’t have to worry about your skin flaring up. The aloe is soothing and the olive oil is moisturizing. They are available in several fragrances (Olive & Honey, Olive & Tea Tree, Olive & Lavender, etc) and you can snag 4 bars for under $5.99.

Still. There’s something about the color of the bar that makes me unhappy. Am I exaggerating? Whatcha think?

 

Johnson’s Challenge: Using baby oil as a makeup remover

I think this may be the one trick that lot of ladies are familiar with. You’ve tried this, haven’t you? I think baby oil works great for removing eyeliner and mascara.

And you’re not only removing the makeup but you’re moisturizing the area below the eyes as well. Hollers!

Who else uses baby oil to remove makeup?

 

 

 

LUSH Fizzbanger bath bomb

Move over Twilight bath bomb! I think I’ve found a new favorite. Fizzbanger. I love every single thing about this bomb. It sat on my dresser for weeks scenting my room before I even tossed it in the tub. LUSH says it goes from smelling like apples to toffee and I couldn’t agree more. It is the most deliciously smelling bath bomb I’ve tried. And it puts on quite a show!

And as you soak in a silky smooth tub of water, what floats on by?

Get it? FizzBANGER? LUSH, you crack me up. Silly rabbits. Check out additional deets about this bath bomb here.

I love the unexpected goodies in the bath bombs. Have you tried this one yet?

Sweaty Betty’s Use Certain Dri

Y’all know I keep it real. I mean…I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t. And so here it is.

I sweat profusely.  I know, I know. It’s so unsexy but it’s one of those genes that I blame on one of my parents. And I’m not saying which one. 8)

And so that’s the bad news. The good news is that I found something that can help!

…and this coming from a skeptic.

Johnson’s Challenge: Beautifying the…dashboard?

Aaaaand, we’re moving on with the Johnson’s Beauty Challenge! I’ve showed you the benefits of applying baby powder in the stinky sneakers and now it’s time to take it to the car. Some of us spend many hours a week in our cars. You know…sitting in traffic, trying to beat rush hour (#FAIL) and going to and from work almost every day. Mama Clumps gave me the idea of slathering baby oil gel all over my dashboard to give it some extra bling.

Seriously! Watch this…
