Cozy Moments & V.U.S Haul

How lovely that cream looks? Umm...hmm... my all-time, always-reliable Etsy store, Cozy Moments, never fails me. I made an order on Halloween Day, when they had a 20% off sale for all items in the store, I am so tempted with this White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies scent they offer, and I was craving for a nice Bath Cream. People like different kind of bath cream, some likes it hard (like the old Isle of Eden's), some prefer it softer (RFSS or the new IoE), I honestly have no preference. I like all kinds and enjoy them in my own special way : ) Curious on trying e-tailer bath creams, I did search on MUA and found out that Cozy Moments' Bath Cream got so many love votes so I decided to order it.

I convo'd Michelle the owner and asked if I could get samples in Frosted Pink Cupcakes (I've been really curious about this scent as well). She always give out samples with order but mostly sample soaps, not that I'm complaining, I adore her soaps, but I have lots of sample soaps I hardly use. To my surprise, she said she was making Frosted Pink Cupcakes Body Butter and she'll sample it for me. Such a doll.

Ok, so I made the order on Friday, on the next day I had a shipping notice and today the package arrived. HOLY MOLY, 2 days? That's crazy, I thought 3 days was the fastest shipping from mainland to get here, but two?!! *take hat off & bow*

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies smells GREAT, right up my alley. It's creamy, it's sweet, a little bit nutty, and of course...YUMMY. My mailman dropped off the box right after I got out of shower but after I smelled this bath cream, I quickly regretted I didn't wait for it to come hehe I'm gonna shower with this tonight and let you guys know what I think. Frosted Pink Cupcakes is also heaven! It's very pretty and foody at the same time, Pink Sugar blends are always nice, and this one is special. I can quickly get the sugar, butter, fluffy frosting and a little bit of almond. Definitely gonna include this in my next order.

I also received my small order from Valerie's Uncommon Scents where I found my Holy Grail chocolate scent. Their Dark Chocolate scent is seriously to-die-for, I shit you not, I tried MANY chocolate scent and they are very tricky. All of them smell so delicious in the jar/bottle but once it touches my skin, they turn musty and odd. I noticed most of them are 'milky' chocolate so I was searching for the truest chocolate scent, and I found it in Valerie's Uncommon Scents.

I did enjoy their 3 in 1, it's my crack in the shower, I love it a lot and use it almost every day. And then I got greedy, so I wanted it in other form. I decided to try their Hair Conditioner, which is pretty great deal for 8 oz bottle costs $4.99, and made me furious thinking about how much Philosophy charges for their products. I also requested a scent for my sample (hey, never hurts to try, right?) and I got Mint Latte fragrance oil. It smells so yumm-o, like your favorite Latte with minty leaves on top.

Hmm...what a great sniff to start the month, agree?
