aroma M Beauty Camellia Bath & Body Oil Review

aroma M bath and body oil

Last year, I tried the aroma M Camellia Hair Oil and Face Oil and fell in love. In my review, I mentioned that I wanted aroma M to expand the magic to a body product. Lucky for me, aroma M did expand the line to include a body oil.

The fragrance of this oil is intoxicating. It makes me feel like a goddess with its heady aromas of white flowers (jasmine and neroli) and a Cleopatra-style rose. It’s mainly a jasmine-rose floral… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Becca & Mars Refresh Aromatherapy Blend Review

Becca & Mars Refresh

Natural brand Becca & Mars has launched Refresh, an aromatherapy line to help with congestion brought on by colds, flu and seasonal allergies.

LUSH Rose Jam Bubble Bar

Rose Jam with notes of rose, lemon and geranium. Retails for $6.25.

It’s the jam. Seriously. This is a “Bubbleroon” meaning it’s… Continue reading | 5 Comments

Aftelier Rain Perfumed Bath Oil Review

Aftelier Rain Bath Oil Review Rain. I have had enough. It has been the rainiest and coldest month on record this April for Western Washington. Ever. And it always rains here, over an average of 66 inches a year. This April statistic is saying something. It says “Please stop. I’m going nuts and I think my scalp is growing moss and I’m moving to San Diego“. (Seriously. Talk me out of moving to California). When I think of the “smell” of rain, I think of moss, mud… Continue reading | 13 Comments
