Cozy Moments Haul & Rant

Before I review my haul, I would like to rant a bit

I just found out my long-live HG fragrance has been discontinued.

It's The Spirit of Moonflower by The Body Shop.

I know I know, it's been discontinued since 1 year ago,
it's probably my fault for not acknowledging the fact and being SUPER LATE about it.

I've tried everything, stores, online, Ebay (2 night ago I lost a bid on Moonflower Body Mist by $.50 !!)

FIFTY FREAKIN CENT !! Internet connection in my I-phone was goddamn slow and the person outbid me when I was still loading. I feel cheated >.<

I was am still so pissed. No one has it anymore. I am looking for the Body Mist or the EDT, and people on Ebay right now are only offering the lotions (with a ridiculous amount of money asked, of course), so right now I am just starting to let it go.

Does anyone have info if your local Body Shop still carry any of Moonflower line?

Ana from Simplicity was nice enough to call The Body Shop in Jakarta, and they also told her the same thing.
No more. Nada. Zero.


I guess I'm gonna mourn in my corner for couple of days.

Ok, sorry about that, but I HAD to ='(

Onto the good stuff, my order from Cozy Moments arrived yesterday morning, I ordered through their Etsy store, although they have their store here.

They were having a Christmas in July sale a while ago, so I was able to get a pretty good deal.

What I got:
  1. Pink Lime Sugar Whipped Body Frosting 4 oz ($5.50)
  2. Peppermint Chocolate Oatmeal Creamy Goats Milk Soap ($4.50)
Shipping was overall $4.45 so I guess it's not that bad.

They gave me free samples of their creamy goats milk soap:
  1. Amazing Grace (Philosophy Type)
  2. Baby Grace (Philosophy Type)
  3. Honey I Washed the Kids (LUSH Type)

The Soap smells so divine, just like a choco-mint scent, the crazy thing is I can see the oatmeal on the soap bar:

hahah that's awesome.

I used the Pink Lime Sugar whipped body frosting last night, and it smells so fresh & sweet.
Pink Lime Sugar is a blended scent of lime, vanilla, and a splash of pink sugar (Aquolina Type).
I caught a tiny hint of coconut when it dried down, so it's great since I love coconut : )

The texture is very fluffy yet absorb quickly. It's like putting on a baby powder, I swear to God, my skin felt so soft, no slimy, greasy feeling afterwards. Whoever made this is a genius !

Overall I'm very pleased with Cozy Moments and now I'm lemming on their Foaming Sugar Body Polish and Bath & Shower Cream Soap. They have tons of scent I would love to try as well:
pink sugar marshmallow, buttercream frosting, london lemon curd, tiramizu, oatmeal milk & honey.

LoL don't they sound like a menu???
