Product Review: Peachy Clean & Flutterby Beauty

Hi my followers! How are you guys doing?

Here is my new update on bath & body products I've received recently. First of, I'm going to review products from company called

Peachy Clean

I was contacted by Emma, the owner, to try out some of her products. She makes her own products after so many years of tweaking & trials and her products don't contain harsh ingredients like parabens & SLS.

I visited her site and squealed over how cute it looks, and the fact that I CAN MIX MY OWN SCENT. I found it uber cool and I could decide on how much percentage of each scent in the mixture.

So here are my "mix & match" order
1. Whip (Strong & Colored; Pink Sugah 35% - Fruit Burst 65%)
2. Sugar Bubble (Strong & Colored; Berry Garden 50% - Cotton Candy 50%)
3. Daily Shine (Uncolored; Sun-kissed Mimosa)
4. Daily Dose (Colored; Blue Raspberries 50% - Lime Splash: 50%)
5. Sniffles (Jojoba Oil; Black Tie Affair)

Pink Sugah: Top notes of smooth Jamaican vanilla and caramel are chased by Bergamot, Sicilian Orange, Raspberry, Fig leaves, Licorice, Strawberry Candy, Barbe-a-Papa, and musk with a dry down of Lily of the Valley, rich woods, and delicate powder.

Fruit Burst: A fruity mix of apples, peaches, strawberries, cherries and tangerines with a drydown of sweet cotton candy and vanilla.

Berry Garden: Discover a hidden treasure of tangy apples, orange blossoms, tart cranberries, mulberries, and blackberries dancing on a base of spun sugar and juicy strawberries.

Cotton Candy: Sugary strawberry and vanilla smells just like cotton candy being spun right in front of you.

Sun-kissed Mimosa: Top notes of mandarin, oranges, tangerines and sweet berries mixed with mimosa blossoms, peaches, pineapple, and plums resting on a base of lily, vanilla, soft jasmine and lavender.

Blue Raspberries: The sweet scent of ripened blue raspberries in the summer sun. This is not a candy-like raspberry, but rather a "real" raspberry fruit.

Lime Splash: Zesty lime, crisp apple, and refreshing orange, with a floral rose and black currant heart drying down to a sweet vanilla plum.

Black Tie Affair: Top notes of toasted vanilla bean, middle notes of black rose, smokey woods, sandalwood, surrounded by bottom notes of white carnation and blood orange all wrapped in a mist of vetiver, amber, touch of patchouli and Egyptian musk.

The Sugar Bubble (foaming sugar scrubs) is so pretty & smells like a fruity bubblegum, it's my favorite out of the bunch.

i don't even wanna use it xD

The Whip (creamy whipped soap), Emma sent an extra jar in Strawberry Dreams because she's making 2 different texture, the soft & harder one. This is what the soft one looks like, scented with my original scent mix (Pink Sugah & Fruit Burst)

(I've used it quite a bit)

and the firmer version (Strawberry Dreams)

I personally like the softer one better,
also for the scent Strawberry Dreams
(Sweet and creamy vanilla blended with juicy strawberries,
and a dash of coconut) smells to sweet for my liking.

The shampoo and conditioner have yet to be tested but they are both smells amazing & fresh. The sniffles (perfume vial) is such a good way to test a scent and the Black Tie Affair smells soooooooooo sexy. I'm planning to order something with that scent =)

Overall, I'm very pleased with this new company, their prices are also very reasonable, and the $5 shipping of any US order & $5 off International order deal are just too awesome to pass, right?

Flutterby Beauty

I read so many reviews on this company and its wide array of Lush dupe scents, and I think last winter I was so curious on LUSH Yummy Yummy Yummy and Sultana so I decided to make a small order from them.

I chose to order their trio Whipped Body Polish sampler, basically 3 jars of 3 oz foaming body scrubs, which allow you to pick more scent without committing to buy a large jar. For $10.95 I think it's a pretty good deal. The scents I chose are

American Dream: An irresistible blend of vanilla absolute with hints of clary sage and lavender on a woody base. (Compare to Lush American Cream)

: This gorgeous fruity floral fragrance will lure you in with black currants and berries, sparkling bergamot, exotic blooms, and mysterious olibanum. (Compare to Lush Sultana)

Yummyberry: A delectable blend of Succulent strawberries, sweet honey water, and squeeze of fresh orange. (Compare to Lush Yummy Yummy Yummy)

To my nose, they smell pretty identical and I really love the Body Polish feels, I think for the quality, it's up there with Isle of Eden and Cleanse Your Soul scrubs.

If you guys are looking for an alternative for LUSH, I'd recommend you to check out Flutterby Beauty, their customer service is great and the product is amazing.
