One Bath and Body

I recently tried some products from this really nice bath and body line called One Bath and Body. They offer lotions, soap, bath bombs, lip balm, and more. I really like their bathbombs, called Bath Fizzers. I tried their fizzer in Blue Earth, it smells sooooo good. It leaves the water a pale blue, with little pieces of floating dried herb. It smells very fresh and has a bit of a ocean smell to it. Really relaxing, very moisturizing also. The Bath Fizzer is 6.5 oz in size and it's already cut in half! So you can use it for two baths, or one. I used both halves in my bath and it was so moisturizing. It does a fizz a little slower and has less fizz than a LUSH bath bomb, but other than that it's just as amazing. The scent was great, I'll definitely be trying more of these. The packaging is great too, the boxes that the products come in are made of recycled paper cardboard.

One Bath and Body also makes Solid Shampoo! I love Solid Shampoo, so I was really interested in trying this. This solid is called Hair Biscuit and it smells very light and flowery, it smells of Jasmine. it smells so pretty! Even my mom loved the scent. It's a nice size chunk too, it's bigger than a LUSH Solid Shampoo, but similar in how it works and lathers. It also comes with it's own storage tin! I LOVE this.

I also tried the Lip Balm, they come in a cute little tin and they come in yummy flavors like Cherry Pie. Also, when you buy any One Bath and Body item, if you fill out the Survey on the One Bath and Body website and you send in the proof of purchase inside of the container, you'll get a FREE lip balm! I love that One Bath and Body is so into giving back to their customers! Their product quality is fantastic, and I'm so impressed with their eco-friendly packaging and products. I am sold on these products!

You can get your hands on the One Bath and Body products at your local Target. Yes, Target! These products are affordable and honestly I have tried a few bath items from otehr brands, and to me, One Bath and Body is equivalent to the quality of LUSH and some may even prefer this brand to Lush. Check them out for yourself and see!

She makes earrings, hair clips, bows, and more. I adore her hair clips, and her flower air clips. Lots of cute kitschy and retro designs. I adore the Leopard Bronze Locket Bow, pictured above.

Her hair flowers are so pretty! She has pin-up style hair flowers in all colors, including red, white, and black. I really like this pretty Deluxe Black Rose Hair Clip, it's only $10.

I really like the designs offered in the Etsy shop, I just love all of the unique and fun goodies you can find at Etsy.

Love and Toast at Tantric Kisses

I am a sucker for cute packaging, and Love and Toast definitely knows how to make their products look appealing. I recently tried some Love and Toast Paper Flower Handcreme. I adore the retro metal tube that the lotion comes in. The scent is pretty and feminine, and the lotion is light yet moisturizing. It feels great on the hands or anywhere on the body that you could use some moisturizing. Love and Toaste even gives back to a group for girls to fulfill their potential with each purchase, which is of course, an awesome reason to support this brand. I want to try some of the other handcreme scents in the future. A nice sized tube of this lotion will only set you back $11.

Love and Toast lip balm is awesome. It's smooth and very moisturizing and I love their scents! I tried the Prickly Pear lip balm and the Star Anise lip balm. The scents smell sooo good, and their made with natural fragrances. These balms are chock full of jojoba oil, olive oil, and other moisturizing ingredients. The lip balm container is super cute too! You get a LOT of product in the container, and a little goes a long way. $11 for one lip balm pot, but with all the scents they offer you'll wany to buy a few ;)

I really like roll on perfume, because it's concentrated, easy to apply, and I can carry it with me in my bag, so I can touch up my scent on the go. This Honey Nectar roll on perfume smells sooooo good! It's fruity with notes of apple and apricot with a little it of jasmine. Very feminine and yummy smelling. I like the cute little frosted glass roll on bottle too, even the box that the product comes in is cute! This roll on fragrance is only $14 and it's a grat way to try different fragrances without having to buying an entire bottle of a scent that you may not like. I really like this scent and find myself sniffing my wrists throughout the day to get a whiff :)

All items are available for purchase at, they offer a lot of beauty brands, and their prices are great. You can also get free shipping on all orders over $100. Their shipping is fast and the customer service rocks :)

Booty Parlor beauty from Tantric Kisses

How cute is this Booty Parlor I'm So Sexy Lip Gloss? I've been curious about Booty Parlor items for awhile now. They make a lot of massage and body items, but I found out that they also offer some lip gloss products! I tried out this Booty Parlor I'm So Sexy Lip Gloss in Peppermint, and now I can't wait to try more Booty Parlor items. This gloss is so pretty! It's a sheer baby pink color with a hint of shimmer. It glides on the lips nicely, and it has a sweet peppermint scent. I love it because Peppermint glosses also can make your breath smell minty fresh when you talk. Which is a plus if you want kissable lips during a hot date ;) I really like the formula of this gloss, and it comes in a cute tube with a Booty Parlor logo on top. This gloss is awesome, and it's only $14 for a tube at

Since I liked the I'm So Sexy gloss so much, I was pretty much convinced that I was going to like the Booty Parlor Kissaholic Kissing Kit. This cute little kit comes in a flirty pink and black box, that almost looks like a cigarette case. It includes one Booty Parlor Kissaholic lip gloss in "Faint" which is a gorgeous nude color, and a Booty Parlor Kissaholic Breath Mist. The gloss is so pretty! It's packaged similar to a MAC Dazzleglass Creme, and the lip brush is the same also. You get a nice amount of product, and the color offers a hint of a pretty pink nude color that is smooth on the lips. Too cute! I got a kick out of the breath mist. It's breath spray that tastes minty fresh, and one spray into the mouth instantly freshens your breath. This kit would be awesome to take in your purse for a night out on the town! A cute gloss, and breath spray. Perfect in case you happen to run into Prince Charming... :) You can get the kit at Tantric Kisses for $26.

If you're on Facebook be sure to check out Tantric Kisses fan page! Their shop is super cute and offers a nice variety of body and cosmetic items from brands like Pop Beauty, Booty Parlor, and more!

I was familiar with H2O+ and had used a few of their body products before, but I had no idea that they make lip care products! So I was super excited to try their H2O+ Lip Oasis. This clear gloss is meant to plump your pout. First off, I like the package. It's classy looking and luxurious. The product itself comes with in a tube with lip applicator and the product is the consistency of a rich lip gloss, but it's a soft off-white color that applies sheer an see-through on the lips. It helps to define lips, plump them, and help your lips achieve their true natural lip pigment. I like the feel of this gloss on my lips. I have fuller lips anyway, but I found that this formula did make my lips feel smoother and nicer. Also, it doesn't sting or burn like other plumpers. This gloss helps to make my lips look even plumper and it was very comfortable to wear, under or on top of lipstick. I really like this stuff. It's $25 at H2O+.

Okay, this stuff is awesome. H2O+ Sea Mineral Cleanser is a creamy moisturizing lotion that is meant to be applied to a dry face, then with wet hands you work it into a light lather, then rinse. This cleanser with clean your skin, without drying it out, and this is also great as a makeup remover. Sometimes taking eye makeup off can be a pain, but I used this lotion and gently massaged the lather onto my closed eyes and rinsed and my makeup came off much easier! I also really like the scent of this lotion, it smells really pleasant and clean. It also has sea minerals in it which helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. You get a nice sized tube of product and a little goes a long way. The tube is nice too, it's a pretty silver color with the H2+ logo in blue. I really like this! My skin felt so soft after use, and it helps to get rid of the foundation, liner, and mascara on my face. You can get a tube of this cleanser for $18.

Pangea Organics

I really like Pangea Organics, their products are body safe and eco-friendly. I recently tried their bar soap in Pyrenees Lavender with Damiana Tea. It smells AWESOME. Very uplifting and relaxing. The soap is great for soothing the skin and relieving tension. I really like the tea and the lavender scent together, they work well to make a really nice fragrant scent that left my skin feeling soft and smooth. Also, check out the packaging...see that box that the soap comes in? It's biodegradable! You can plane the box in the earth, or recycle it! Either way, it's less waste and trash from the environment, which is awesome. Their soap is affordable too, a nice sized bar will only cost you $8.

I also recently tried the Pangea Organics body lotion in Chilean Red Clover with Geranium and Grapefruit. This scent is spicy and rich, it's exotic and pretty. Definitely not like any other lotion I have ever used before It made my skin feel smooth, and it melted into my skin very nicely and absorbed well. I adore the packaging also, it's a really pretty bottle. This lotion helps to nourish the skin and to uplift the senses. The lotion comes in a light caramel color and you can feel the oils in the lotion which make it so moisturizing. You get a nice sized bottle for $18. I really want to try more Pangea Organics products. Quality items, affordable prices, good for the body AND the earth? Great job, Pangea!

Ramy Beauty

I just recently found a new HG (holy grail) mascara...Ramy Beauty Lash Extension 101! This stuff is awesome. It's a two step product, that involves using one tube of One Stop Shopping Mascara, and one tube of Triumph Mascara Revitalizer. The tubes are small and discreet, but offer a nice amount of product which doesn't clump on the brush. The mascara applies evenly and nicely, coating lashes, without weighing them down. I found this product to actually make my lashes appear darker, lusher, and longer than any other mascara I've used. I'm pretty much sold on this product! My lashes didn't feel sticky or clumpy, so no spiderlashes here. You apply one tube first, then the other, and even though it takes two steps and two applications, it was quick and easy. I need more of this stuff! You can get it at Ramy Beauty for $35.

I recently tried another Ramy product that I really like, it's called Ramy Pure Water. It's a foaming facial cleanser, that smells lovely and is refreshing and cleansing to the skin without drying the face out. It comes in three scents, Rose, Lavender, and Sugar Water. I tried Lavender and I like the relaxing scent, the ease of using the cleanser, and the fact that since it comes out as a foam, it's very easy to distribute onto the face, which ensures that I didn't miss any spots. Another awesome thing about this product is that you can use it as a makeup remover! Just use the foam to remove makeup, no need to rinse! I really like this cleansing foam and hope to try the Sugar Water scent next! You can get this product at the Ramy website for $22 a bottle.

Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer

Flawless makeup application is important to me, so when I find a primer that not only works wonderful but also is oil-free, water-resistant, *and* paraben free? I'm all about it! I adore the Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer. It comes in a frosted glass bottle that contains a nice amount of product, especially since a little goes a long way with this primer. The primer is thick enough to apply good coverage of fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes, but also thin enough so that you don't feel like it's weighing you down. It also contains SPF 15 which is great the upcoming summer months! Fragrance free and oil-free which means that it's okay for sensitive skin or acne prone skin. This primer hydrates your skin, and allows even makeup application under your foundation and concealer. After applying the primer, my skin felt smooth and clean, and ready for makeup application!

A bottle of Hourglass Cosmetics Veil is a little on the pricey side for $52, but when it comes to makeup and beauty items most times you get what you pay for. So if you're willing to shell out a little extra cash on a product that works, then why not? It's your face, treat it right! :) You can find this primer at or

The Swank Co.

I just found this really cute shop called The Swank Co. They offer cute bath and body products, home decor, and other goodies and gifts. The shop is based in Georgia, but you don't have to live there to shop, you can shop via their online shop at! They have Tokyo Milk Cherry Bomb perfume, Archipelago Sweet Pea Difusser, and more. I also like their Elizabeth W Triple Mill Soap. I also like their website design, which looks kind of retro and fun. The shop has a great vibe, and they offer good customer service. I received my shipment of products from The Swank Co. very quickly and I'm really pleased with their selection of items. So glad that I found this shop!
