I love the $3 soap sale when you combine it with one of their coupons (sign up for email or purchase online) the price of the soap comes down to just $2.28 a bottle. This season they have so many great scents I might have got a bit carried away but with amazing holiday scents like Christmas morning, and Frosted Cranberry how do you not stock up?

Head-Cold

The dreaded cold season is upon us. After watching it work its way through my kids and friends I foolishly thought I had outrun the bug. But after a crazy week of kid’s birthday’s, soccer parties and work my cold came in like a wrecking ball on Saturday night. It always amazes me how I can go from feeling great to a congested, coughing mess in hours.

When I have a cold I try to sleep as much as usual, drink as many fluids as possible and take every vitamin and supplement know to man. Something has to work right? Well one of my favorite cold soothers are Lush Bath bombs, nothing like a warm bath with a fizzy amazing smelling bath bomb to soothe my achy body. This weekend as I was cleaning I happened upon a Santa Lush bath bomb from last year that had someone slipped behind all my products and hidden from me. While I know Lush products are very fresh and usually best when used right away I decided to plop it in the bath and try it out. To my elation it fizzed and spun and made the bathroom smell so great I could even smell through my congested head. And the best part is how soft, smooth my skin feels.

So do yourself a favor and stock up for when the cold comes a knocking or just a quite spa night in the bath with your favorite book and a glass of wine. Here are a few of my favorites.

 

butterball

Butterball Bath Bomb
Beautiful butter cream hydration for dry skin
Our vanilla-scented Bath Bomb is anything but boring when you lay back into a cozy white blanket of creamy, buttery froth. This little fizzer is the ultimate in comfort with chunks of creamy cocoa butter; it’s fantastic for rehydrating dry skin. Baths can dry your skin if they’re too hot, so if you’re in need of a long, lingering bath pop one of these gorgeous beauties into the tub for a vanilla custard soak to lull you into a deep relaxed state – and leave with sweeter, softer skin.

fizzbanger

Fizzbanger Bath Bomb
Alluring apple and spice Bath Bomb
Transform your ordinary bath into something new and exciting. Whizz! Bang! Pop! Fizz! Our Fizzbanger Bath Bomb goes off in the bath water as if it were loaded with miniature fireworks.

Trending For Fall: Amber Fragrance Notes with Caress

With cooler weather around the corner, it’s time to stock up on fall trends. From interesting heel shapes and velvet everything to burgundy lips and glossy eyelids, fall certainly has a touch of Victorian chic this year. Notes of Amber are the perfect complement to this dark and mysterious look and it’s considered one of the trendiest notes in niche perfumery for the season.

Givaudan Fragrances, the chemists behind Caress fine fragrances, is one of the first pioneers of fragrance chemistry and the creator of Ambermax®, a substantive amber woody note. Amber, a synthetic note created as a late 19th-century olfactory invention, is typically comprised of vanilla, benzoin and labdanum. These rich ingredients impart a soft warmth, a subtle sweetness and depth.

I’ve had a chance to try the 3 new Fall body wash fragrances from Caress and I really love these new scents. Check out the three new scents below.

I love this scent, it could be a perfume with the warm, sultry amber notes mingled with the Imperial Iris. Such a gorgeous scent and I love that it leaves my skin smelling great for hours.

Mystique Forever
The captivating, feminine fragrance features a sensual bouquet of rare and exquisite Imperial Iris that mingles with addictive amber to create a bold and alluring scent. Its breakthrough Fragrance Touch Technology releases bursts of these notes for up to 12 hours, captivating the senses and leaving others wanting more.

Sheer Twilight is a very exotic scent with Black Orchid and Juniper Oil on top of a golden amber base. This was not really in my wheelhouse while I found it pretty the scent was a bit overwhelming to me. My daughter did not agree and happily snatched it from my shower. So check it out you may love it as much as she does.

Sheer Twilight
Infused with the scents of Black Orchid and Juniper Oil, the scent’s sensual and mysterious black orchid is the centerpiece but it leads the way to a captivating blend of dark woods, golden amber, and exotic fruits.

Last but not least my new obsession Passionate Spell. Really the most gorgeous body wash scent I have ever tried. The Passionfruit and Fiery Orange Rose and earthy and warm and the base of vanilla and amber make it intoxicatingly good. As you can see by the half empty bottle I love it. And even better my whole bathroom smells amazing after my shower and my skin has a hint of the scent all day. I will be stocking up on this!

Passionate Spell
Infused with the notes of Passionfruit and Fiery Orange Rose, the scent opens with notes of plum and raspberry, has jasmine, rose and freesia at its heart and features a base of cedarwood, vanilla and amber.

 

 

You can purchase the new Caress scents at your local drugstore or mass retailer.

Makeup Artist Debra Ferullo trusted LORAC Cosmetics to create Kate’s bold-eye look.
