I Luv BBW – Bath & Body Works Review & Semi Annual Sale


As you already know from my previous post I love Bath & Body Works.  I’ve been using their products since they began and continue to love them more and more.


Recently I participated in the #BBWSummer Twitter party. If you’re not on Twitter yet you are missing out. It’s one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. Plus it’s a great place to connect with all the brands you love.


During the #LuvBBW party we talked about summer, our favorite Bath & Body Works products and tons more. Their parties are always a blast.

I was thrilled to win a fab gift bag with tons of amazing products. Especially since they were scents I have not yet tried.


I received the Malibu Heat Triple Moisture Body Cream, Malibu Heat Fine Fragrance Mist, Malibu Heat Shower Gel, True Blue Spa Cooling Sunscreen Mist in SPF 30, True Blue Spa After Sun Moisturizer Hold It Right There, Slatkin & Co. White Sand Candle and a cute tote bag.



Malibu Heat

Malibu Heat reminds me of a yummy Malibu Bay Breeze. My hubby thought so too. Malibu Heat is a fresh blend of juicy pineapple, California orange and creamy coconut milk inspired by hot pink sunsets and twenty-seven miles of beautiful beach.


True Blue Spa Cooling Sunscreen

I had never tried their sunscreen before and it went on really nice. I’ve found that the spray sunscreens can smell a bit potent but this had a nice fragrance and gave great coverage.

Who wouldn’t wear sunscreen when it feels this good to put on? This SPF 30 sunscreen is a cool, refreshing mist that’s ridiculously easy to apply.

  • The fast drying formula compliments your on-the-go lifestyle
  • Quick-drying, ultra-lightweight texture

True Blue Spa After Sun Moisturizer Hold It Right There

Holy creamsicle! This smells amazing! This moisturizer went on very smooth but the kicker for me truly was the smell. Once you achieve the perfect tan, you’ll of course want to keep your pasty, pale friends jealous as long as possible. However sun exposure can cause dry skin and cause free radicals to age and damage skin. Their special after sun formula contains antioxidant vitamins C & E to help combat free radicals.

  • With soothing, moisturizing Aloe Vera to calm sunkissed skin
  • Lightweight, spreadable formula
  • Not tested on animals

Slatkin & Co. White Sand Candle

I love Slatkin candles and I love the beach! Who doesn’t? Now I can have the best of both worlds. Like the first long days of summer at the beach – sparkling grapefruit and sandalwood, with coconut milk and summer jasmine.

  • Highly fragranced candle created exclusively by Harry Slatkin and developed and tested by our team of Home Fragrance experts
  • Made using the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an exclusive blend of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks for optimal performance
  • 4 oz. candle burns approximately 20 to 30 hours


I am so thankful to Bath & Body Works for giving me the opportunity to try out these amazing products. I loved them all. Go figure!


Their Semi-Annual Sale is going on now so hurry and go stock up!

Recently I had the opportunity to try out Nourish Organics.



They are an organic skin care line that is run right from the heart of the south, Franklin, Tennessee. Their ingredient list is not long or confusing.

I completely loved this body wash. I personally love lavender. Especially right before I go to bed. This body wash lathers great and it’s minus any harsh ingredients. Bonus! The scent is truly amazing and perfect to help you wind down after a long day.

All’s gud in the world – Product Review


I’ve been a fan of Burt’s Bee’s for a number of years. I mean who isn’t. So when I heard the Burt’s Bee’s came out with a new line called gud I had to check them out. The folks at gud were kind enough to gift me with a few products from their new line to test out.


When I received the product I was overjoyed with how cute it came. The packaging was adorable. Presentation is so important!


Included in my product kit was the Floral Cherrynova Body Mist, Orange Petalooza Body Lotion and the Vanilla Flame Body Wash.


The Floral Cherrynova is exactly what you would expect flowery with hints of cherry and almond milk. It’s a very light fresh fragrance and lasts all day.


The Vanilla Flame Body Wash was super moisturizing and gave a great lather. I love a body wash with a great lather. Maybe its me but I always feel like the better the lather the cleaner you get. The Vanilla Flame smells like vanilla mixed with flowers. The folks at gud say “Smell like an angel. (Not to be confused with acting like one.)”


Last but not least the Orange Petalooza….YUMMMM! This fragrance was hands down my absolute fave! I’m a huge citrus fan especially for my morning showers (I prefer lavender at night to wind down). It is the perfect mix of vibrant orange and soft hyacinth. The perfect wake me up!


I’ve gotta tell you I loved the Orange Petalooza so much that I headed on over to my local Ulta to purchase a few bottles of the Orange Petalooza body wash. I love citrusy scents especially in the morning. They are such a great energizer. Especially in the summer! Citrus scents are my go-to summer scent.

How I Love Clean & Clear Products!


I’ve been using the Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Scrub for years.


But recently I had the opportunity to try their body wash BOOST w/ Mango & Papaya. Clean & Clear never ceases to amaze me. Every product I try is simply better than the next. This body wash was super moisturizing and is the perfect scent for summer. I always go to mango or orange in the summer. Plus it’s always nice and invigorating for a morning shower. Gets your senses going and wakes you up. I only had to use a drop of the body wash on my loofah to get the most amazing lather ever. Seriously… best lather EVER! I don’t know why I’m surprised; I’ve been using the face scrub since forever and love it.



If you haven’t tried Clean & Clear…. You are seriously missing out. They truly have the best products. I’ve been using them since I was in high school and am cough cough in my 30s now and still use them. I think they need a new older face for Clean & Clear don’t you? Hint hint.



See fewer blackheads in just two days! CLEAN & CLEAR® BLACKHEAD ERASER™Scrub has unique exfoliating multi-action beads that work to gently remove the trapped dirt, oil, and dead skin that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Three sizes of multi-action beads allow surface exfoliation and a deep down clean. Salicylic Acid, an acne fighting medicine, clears blackheads and helps prevent new ones from forming.


The scoop on CLEAN & CLEAR® BOOST w/ Mango & Papaya

Get Clean! Get energized! Get Going! New CLEAN & CLEAR® MORNING BURST®body wash is designed to help stimulate your senses and energize you all over. MORNING BURST® is the only body wash infused with BURSTING BEADS® that are suspended with exotic fruit extracts. Feel the BOOST of mango & papaya fill your shower as the bubbly formula leaves your skin clean and refreshed.
