Rainbow Honey September Mini Mystery Bag

Rainbow Honey Sept monthly mini mystery bag
I love my Rainbow Honey September mini Mystery bag! Here’s what was included this month:
Sugarberries – gorgeous sugary blend of berry glitters and pigments in a red shimmery base. Use for a glitter topper or layers.
Salacia – A sea goddess, calm and twinkling marine green glitter topper, part of an upcoming collection.
Asteroid – Midnight blue shimmer base, packed with tons of holo silver and gold stars.
Pomme Rouge Body Balm – (new product), formulated with the finest oils, this moisturizing and non sticky balm leaves a long lasting light layer of the Pomme Rouge scent. Perfect for fall, it’s a blend of sweet seasonal red apples and berries.
Pomme Rouge body lotion – enriched with aloe for a light feeling and scent.
Pomme Rouge hand soap – lightly scented, moisturizing heart shape mini soap.

I’m excited to see the rich shades and textures with what I consider to be the first mystery bag of fall! I’ve already tried one polish, Sugarberries, over a red creme and LOVE it. It has large reflective silver glitter that’s just stunning!

Have you jumped on this monthly subscription yet? It’s $12 per month for the mini mystery bag, and it remains my favorite box!

Influenster J’Adore VoxBox review

I received a great package from Influenster on Valentine’s Day! The J’Adore Vox Box contained items meant to pamper and make you feel as beautiful as you look! Here’s what my box contained:

Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask ($9.39) – Meant for normal skin, this hypo-allergenic formula contains oceanic clay with a negative electrical charge, said to draw out skin impurities without over-drying. I like that it doesn’t suck every bit of moisture out of my already dry skin. This will be a mask that will be a regular in my warm weather skin care regimen.
for more info – Boots on Facebook

Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates – $5.29 18.5oz family size bag
Valentine’s Day or any day, chocolate is always welcome in my mail! You should have seen the kids reaction to this giant bag of Hershey’s Kisses! I had to hurry up and take pictures, so they could dive in!
for more info – Hershey’s Facebook and Twitter

Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray – $9.99 3.5 oz
This heat activated formula wraps each strand of hair with a Keratin formula that won’t weigh hair down. You will have frizz free hair for up to 3 days. My hair loves Keratin, and seems to dry faster (less time with the blow dryer, means less damage!) when I use it.

KISS Looks So Natural Lashes – $3.99
These lashes are made with Tapered End Technology, to look more like your natural fluttery lashes. They are lightweight and blend easily with your natural lashes.
for more info – KISS on Facebook and Twitter

Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas – $4.49 for 20 tea bags
Red Rose tea combines rich and unique flavors infused in a premium black tea blend. I tested Caramel Creme and Lemon Chiffon, which are both delicious. They also have Cinnamon Bun and Spiced Chai flavors, which I look forward to trying.
for more info – Red Rose Tea on Facebook and Twitter.

Also included in my Influenster J’Adore VoxBox was a Vaseline Men Spray Lotion ($7.99 for 6.5oz spray can) for my husband to test! He’s pretty used to me testing skin care items on him. He is a man of few words when testing products for me. I believe he said “It smells nice and I’m not itchy.” That is a thumbs up from him!

Unique Holiday Gift Ideas for the Scent Obsessed

I have a few unique Holiday gift ideas for the lovers of scent in your life! My first suggestion will come as no surprise to those that read my blog regularly. An Olfactif subscription would be a lovely gift to give or receive! Olfactif is a monthly niche perfume subscription service.


Each month you will receive three unique scents chosen by the very talented scent lovers at Olfactif. The Olfactif holiday shop has gift subscriptions, gift cards, and mens and womens bestseller samplers. This is definitely a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year!

Up next is a brand that is new to me, and I am just loving their candles! Rive Sud Interior is based in Cannes, France and is the creation of French home designer, Christine Bodino and perfume creator, Delphine Thierry.
From Rive Sud Interior: Like a signature that finalizes her private home designs, Christine Bodino shares her very exceptional world with us through a new “Rive Sud Interior” line of perfumed candles with fragrances that are heady and mysterious, sensuous and ephemeral.

Elegance and refinement, minimalism and elitism correspond to her instinctive, passionate nature and inspired universe.heir nose: Delphine Thierry, a talented and experienced perfume creator. The encounter was a brilliant success, rich in complicity and trust; a good omen for a long-term collaboration and the olfactory creations to come.
Taking advantage of the finest laboratories in the nearby city of Grasse, this first limited edition of perfumed candles is made from carefully developed rare and natural ingredients. The constituents combine the sophistication of olfactory harmonies with the ecological requirements of plant-based wax.
Each fragrance tells a story, evokes memories, creates sensations, awakens feelings and leads us towards new and unexpected experiences…

The Rive Sud Interior line has four scents thus far. Via Della Basilica, the candle I am testing, is scented with black pepper, myrrh and incense. It sounds like it would be a powerful scent, yet I find it extremely comforting and relaxing. Rosewood contains cinnamum, guiac and rosewood. Acqua di Latte contains star anise, angelica and white musks (next on my list to try!). The final scent is Cap Ferrat les Pins, containing sage, nutmeg, pine and papyrus.

I can’t recommend Sarabecca Natural Perfumes in Day and Night highly enough! You can see my review here. Each 50ml bottle retails for $78 normally. This holiday season, Sarabecca is offering both bottles in a set for $130. The scents layer beautifully, so I would grab this special offer while you can!


Last, but certainly not least, I’ve recently discovered Pour le Monde, or For the World, a new all natural fragrance company that donates a minimum of 5% to charity for each bottle sold. There are three fragrances, and each one benefits a different charity. The scents and who they benefit:
Envision: for the National MS Society whose mission is to envision a world free of MS.
Together: benefitting the Cancer Support Community so no one faces cancer alone®.
Empower: supporting Guiding Eyes for the Blind which provides dogs that empower the visually impaired and children with autism.

Envision fragrance notes: lavender, Italian bergamot, pink peppercorn, Brazilian orange, Persian lime, patchouli, mixed woods and pure Madagascar vanilla
Together fragrance notes: freesia, jasmine, violet, woodsy back notes
Empower fragrance notes: grapefruit, lemon, mandarin, spearmint, lemongrass, basil and a dry down of subtle woods
Pour le Monde fragrances are certified and recognized by the following organizations:
-Natural Products Association
-Leaping Bunny (animal cruelty free)
-Peta Beauty without Bunnies
-Natural Ingredient Resource Center
-Forest Stewardship Council

You can purchase Pour le Monde Perfumes for $95 per 1.7fl oz bottle.

I’m curious if you have any other ideas for unique fragrance gifts this holiday season. I’d love to hear in the comments below! Thanks for reading!
