The Brightside Project & Bead For Life

Just a quick post today...

I think I've been reading The Brightside Project for about two years now, it's a great blog! They introduced me to the wonderful world of Etsy, and many other sites just like the one from today...Bead For Life.

Now I'm not going to go into all the details for Bead For Life since the fantastic ladies at The Brightside Project did, but please check them both out!!

Pegasus Soaps - Sugar Scrub Cubes

The scent was Honey Almond Oatmeal, which was great! I love the smell of almond oil, it just smells nice.

The cubes them selves were not what I expected. I guess what I expected was a cube that when you got it wet crumbled into the sugar and you scrubbed. These melted, and exfoliated. Not a bad thing and won't stop me from using them, since the scent is light and won't conflict with perfumes.

In fact I'm going to compare these to Lush's Buffy the Backside Slayer, which I really like, but the huge block is a pain to take in and out of the shower every time, with this you take one or two in at a time, I took two and one would have been fine. Also, they don't leave a slippery, oily residue on the bottom of the tub.

Oh, and my skin feels smooth and moisturized, which is the goal when using one of these treatments.

So, to wrap up, since I feel like this has been all over the place...great scrub cubes that melt rather than crumble, so it depends on what your looking for in a scrub.

Replica Samples

So, I have 10 or 12 replica samples from Opulent Alchemy, and I'm just not sure what to do with them...now you're thinking use them, and I am, but I'm not sure how to review them.

Since Nicholette does such a fantastic job of replicating, what I'll call commercial scents, I'm not sure I can comment on them.

Some of the scents are hard to find, maybe even out of production.

I'm still stumped...

Orange Thyme - mon petit secret

So, mon petit secret...this is going to be a long one.

This smells to me like the most traditional perfume I've tested in a long time.

It's sharp, with floral notes, but something softer underneath. This is a hard one, since it smells really good overall, but something else about it is old fashioned.

Going to have to see how this wears through the day.

Orange Thyme - Lip Balm

With my perfume samples from Orange Thyme, she included a lip balm in Raspberry Sorbet.

I have to say that this is a really nice lip balm. The scent of the balm is right on raspberry with a little something else as an undertone. Maybe a little citrus.

A really nice lip balm. You can find at orangethyme.etsy.com

Orange Thyme - Thai Coconut

Emmm, this one is really nice. Light coconut scent. Totally beachy, but not pina colada, as close to the suntan lotion scent as I've found.

Don't know what else to say. If your looking for a scent to mimic beachy, suntan lotion, this might be it.

This scent just melted into my skin and is totally mellow. Really nice!

I might be purchasing this...From orangethyme.etsy.com
