Treacle Moon Sweet Sugared Almond, Marshmallow Hearts & Warm Apple Pie Hugs Body Wash Review

Remember the Treacle Moon Raspberry Kiss Body Scrub, Kizzy from The Dainty Dolls House sent me? Well, she also sent me some of their body washes! I'm just now trying them and here are my thoughts.

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)

Treacle Moon Warm Apple Pie Hugs Bath And Shower Gel - Supersweet
This one is my FAVORITE! It's scent is like green granny apples with cinnamon! Yummm and such a delight! This body wash was the most moisturizing of the three.

Treacle Moon Sweet Sugared Almond Bath and Shower Gel - Sweet
The dominant scent of this body wash is almond! Think sugared almond candy and almond flavored cake. It's very nice and not overly sweet, because of the almonds.

Treacle Moon Marshmallow Hearts Bath and Shower Gel - Bittersweet
I LOVE the marshmallow scent of this body wash! So why the bittersweet rating? It's the candy heart scent they've added to it. It gives the body wash an artificial scent. I hate that. I was conflicted, because candy hearts never taste real anyway! LOL So this body wash scent IS AUTHENTIC! I just can't recommend it. It's not bad, but just ARTIFICIAL :P

I went to Treacle Moon's website and they seem to change scents regularly. I didn't see any of these, so they were probably Limited or Special Edition. They're also made in England, so unless you contact them personally to ship, find them on eBay or know a friend (wink wink Kizzy) they're hard to find. But I still wanted to review them anyway, because it gives you some insight as to what their products are like. I'm truly thankful to Kizzy, because she helps me try International products, which I LOVE TO DO!

Feeling Smitten Strawberry Mint, Sugar Brulee, Sweet Watermelon, Cake Batter Bath Wash & Lip Glaze

I purchased some body washes and lip glazes from Feeling Smitten. Below are my thoughts!

Feeling Smitten Strawberry Mint Bath Wash & Bubble Bath
This body wash is absolutely refreshing! Forget ANY other strawberry body washes, you've ever tried! This one is so different! It surprised me, because it's grown-up! It reminds me of a strawberry cocktail. Very unique and perfect for Spring & Summer! It's not super fruity or over-the-top-sweet. It's simply delightful & refreshing! The scent & lather are very light and the scent dissipates as you shower.

Feeling Smitten Sugar Brulee Bath Wash & Bubble Bath
This is definitely creme brulee the dessert! But without the calories! HaHaHa It's sugary sweet for anyone that loves sweet scents! I was worried that this would be too heavy for Spring & Summer, but it isn't. It's not heavy at all. The scent is heavenly and you will delight taking a shower with this.

Feeling Smitten Sweet Watermelon Lip Glaze
A sweet slice of juicy watermelon for your lips. This lip glaze smells good and tastes good! HaHaHa It's CREAMY! It's MOISTURIZING! Go to your local drugstore and purchases some applicators (shown in the next group of pictures below). This will keep everything sanitary. Your significant other will be begging for a kiss, when you wear this ;) Do, I dare say this is MORE moisturizing than my beloved Fresh lip balms! YES! This gives off a slight pink tint on your lips. Fabulous and LASTS for hours! Nothing waxy about it.

Feeling Smitten Cake Batter Lip Glaze
It's both freshly baked cake and batter without making one or licking the spoon! HaHaHa I can't get over how creamy and moisturizing these lip glazes are :) So fabulous. I'm feeling smitten right now! I always LOVE their cute packaging! To read my other Feeling Smitten reviews, click HERE. Have a great day!

Makeup Revolution Death by Chocolate Eyeshadow Review and Swatches

Remember the I Heart Chocolate eyeshadow palette I reviewed earlier this year and loved? Well, I decided to try the other two chocolate candy-bar themed palettes by Makeup Revolution: Death By Chocolate & Naked Chocolate. Kizzy of The Dainty Dolls House sent the first two to me :) Thanks Kizzy!  I was really expecting great things from Death by Chocolate, but it turned out to be just ok. The first row of shades are very splotchy when applied. The second row has beautiful colors, except the two on the ends. HaHaHa The third row contains beautiful shimmery shades. For all, you have to apply a couple of times. So, Death by Chocolate is truly like one of those assorted candy boxes, where you're going to like some and dislike others. I suggest skipping this, unless you want the cute candy-bar themed packaging (which contains a mirror) like me HaHaHa and getting the Smashbox Full Exposure or Too Faced Natural Eyes eyeshadow palettes instead. Hope you enjoyed Chocolate Week!

Top Row: White Light, Don't Let Go, Break Me Up, Consume Me, All is Lost
Middle Row: Lick Me, Fool's Gold, One More Bar, Devour Me, Tear The Wrapper, Love You To Death
Bottom Row: Pray For Me, Dipped, Tease Me, Set Me Free, Bring Down Angels

Ganache For Lips Gourmet Lip Balm Review

Dessert for your lips! Those were the "oh-so-delicious" words that attracted me to these lip balms. I much rather dessert for my lips, than my hips! LOL Ganache for Lips lip balms have yummy scents, feel great to the lips (very moisturizing) and they're long-lasting! You know how I constantly rave about Fresh lip balms? These last just as long and they are just as moisturizing. Ganache for Lips lip balms are also all natural and the company only uses unrefined ingredients from botanical sources. I do want to note, these lip balms DO NOT have any taste. So, don't expect that! Oh, how I wish they did! HaHaHa I didn't swatch these, because ALL were colorless. These can be purchased individually, but I couldn't decide... so I ended up purchasing both their Chocolate Parfait and Chocolat aux Fruits Collection. There were some outstanding scents and maybe 1 or 2 OK ones! Read my thoughts on scents below. Click on pictures to make larger.

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)
Ganache For Lips All Natural Gourmet Lip Balms are Sweet

Chocolate Aux Fruits Collection {contains chocolate orange, chocolate raspberry, lemon mousse and chocolate mousse} Chocolate Orange and Chocolate Raspberry are exactly such! The fruit & chocolate scents blend delectably together. Think of chocolate candies with orange and raspberry  in the middle. Lemon mousse reminds me of lemon chiffon. The scent is very light (almost undetectable). Chocolate mousse is a fruit? That's new to me! HaHaHa It's scented just like chocolate mousse, pudding and even a hint of fig. All are very moisturizing (4-6 hours).

Chocolat Parfait Collection {contains chocolate mint, mocha latte, chocolate hazelnut and vanilla mousse} Any COFFEE LOVERS out there? Get Mocha Latte! Instead of wanting that second, third or fourth cup of coffee, you'll be reaching for this lip balm. It's scented as such. It's the strongest out of both collections. My next favorite is Chocolate Mint! I can't eat chocolate & mint, but I sure do love the scent. HaHaHa This is scented just like those Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies and has the coolness of Peppermint Patty candy. Very nice! Chocolate Hazelnut is lightly scented. You smell more hazelnut than chocolate. Vanilla Mousse is more mousse than vanilla. HaHaHa It's scent is almost non-existent. Again, ALL are very moisturizing. Those are my thoughts! I will say this, after testing all of these my lips are super duper moisturized! HaHaHa >.<

Philip B Chocolate Milk Body Wash & Bubble Bath Review and Swatches

I was relaxing & reading Allure Magazine a couple of years ago and came across Philip B's Chocolate Milk Body Wash & Bubble Bath. A chocolate body wash? My eyes lit up with interest! I asked myself, who is Philip B? After going to his website, I found out he is an international hair treatment expert and specialist out of California. He makes botanical hair care and body products. I made a little note to try his body wash and now two years later, I finally tried it. This stuff is FABULOUS! I unscrewed the cap and just kept sniffing over and over and over again. This is liquid chocolate! There is NOTHING artificial about it! It lathers beautifully and your skin has a soft scent of chocolate afterwards. Truly decadent. I was so impressed, I ordered his Truffle shampoo & conditioner. Just got it. I'll let you know how I like it. If it's as good as the body wash, then my hair is in for a treat. He has other body washes I want to try, but I don't want to kill my bank account...HaHaHa...but HELLO Chai Latte Soul & Thai Tea Mind! Those two have peaked my interest. This body wash is both Paraben & Phthalate FREE :) So THIS my friends,  is the perfect compliment to the Serendipitous by Serendipity Parfum I was talking about yesterday. Chocolate body wash + chocolate perfume = Chocolate Goodness! The only other chocolate body wash I ever fell in love with was by Philosophy! Even more than this one! It was called Fudge Cake, but they're no longer making it! I'm going to ask them on Twitter to bring that back >.< Ohhh, and if you MIX chocolate body wash with a mint one!?! It's BRILLIANT together! My minor was Chemistry. I wish we would've mixed stuff like THIS instead. HaHaHa Chocolate Week continues tomorrow....
