Alba Botanica Hawaiian Cocktail Body Wash is la-la-lovely.

Guess who, for the first time in a looooong time, has stepped away from bars of soap to play around with body washes again? Meeeee! I think I’ve forgotten how awesome body washes are. I’ve been so stuck on making my own soap that I haven’t even touched body wash until a few weeks ago. This divine bottle of liquid gold that is Alba Bontanica’s Hawaiian Cocktail Body Wash broke my fast.

Have you seen these in stores? I’ve spotted them in Target and Whole Foods. The fragrance of this body wash is just absolutely incredible. It reminds me of Hawaiian punch with a citrus kick to it. Folx always hate me for bragging about how it’s a good 80 degrees in Florida in November, but a whiff of this body wash will transport you to a tropical paradise.

Like…for reals. The best thing about this body wash is what it doesn’t have.


Yep, my skin and I are both product snobs (unapologetically so) and I love how this body wash does a whole lot of omitting of the stuff that my skin hates. It is chock full of artificial fragrance but it smells so pleasant that I don’t mind using it for time to time.


Not bad for $8.95. You down for a tropical body wash?

LUSH Halloween bath goodies

I love how LUSH gets all giddty about holidays. I’m not all that crazy about Halloween, but I just had to have that adorable Pumpkin Soap. Doesn’t that cutesy bubbly bar make you want to jump in the tub?

I mean…you should always want to jump in the tub, but it’s great to have incentives. For $6.95, this soap is fantastic. Laced with clove, cardamom, spearmint and fresh pumpkin, the Pumpkin Soap also includes cinnamon. As I showered, that was the the prominent smell. I also got a hint of ginger which made me crave for ginger snaps like you wouldn’t believe. The best thing? The cute pumpkin face lasted after 2 weeks worth of washin’. Weeee! Oh, and if you aren’t a  fan of long-lasting scents, you’ll love Pump even more. While bathing and showering will fill your bathroom up with gingery goodness, you can rest assured that the scent fades away a bit. It is slighty fragrant on the skin but it isn’t overpowering. Which, for me, is a relief. I love ginger snaps but I don’t really want to go around smelling like them. You can grab Pump from LUSH stores and LUSH online. And then there’s the Calavera Bath Bomb.

Y’all know just how much I love bath bombs. While Twilight bath bomb will be my forever, favorite Calavera isn’t too shabby either. Per LUSH, “Calaveras (skulls, in Spanish) are an iconic image for Day of the Dead, a Mexican celebration that honors and respects the dead. We were so inspired last season by the idea that this time of year could be filled with love instead of scary creatures, we invented a line of Day of the Dead products.

Pretty cool, uh?

If you know anything about bath bombs, you know that in addition to providing a luscious bath experience, they are are also entertainment for your bath water. Take Calavera for example. The second I dropped it in the water, it got to spinning and spewing colorful bits.

And then…

What the? For a second it looked like a bubble bee. Don’t laugh at me. I was recently stung TWICE by a bee so now I’m totally on bee radar. I’ve had some random stuffs pop out of a bath bomb but I just knew LUSH wasn’t crazy enough to drop any bees in ‘em. A closer look revealed something more.

Marigold petals! Oooh okay, I get it. A good 2 minutes later and the the bathwater was lime green.

It’s a zesty bath bomb that is definitely the pick me up. If you’re a lover of fruity lime scents, you’ll dig this bath bomb. It goes for $5.95 and you can get it from LUSH stores and LUSH.com.

Both of these Halloween goodies are limited edition. Grab ‘em before they’re gone!

LUSH’s AvoBath Bath Bomb

Yep, I’m back with another one. This bath bomb smells like avocados. No, I’m kidding. How loco would it be if it did though? But it does contain fresh avocados and lemongrass essential oil. Lemongrass is by far one of my top favorite essential oils. This bomb is also infused with olive oil; a plus for ladies with super dry skin. AKA moi.

But it isn’t my favorite bath bomb. It smells just okay but I didn’t leave the tub feeling all silky smooth like I’ve felt after using other bath bombs. It wasn’t a total waste because I absolutely loved how green it made the water.

Yes, the little things amuse me. It was a good $6.95 but I wanted more from this bomb. It definitely can’t beat my favorite bath bomb. Oh well, off I go to try another one. Have you tried this bath bomb from LUSH? What say you?

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?

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?
