May Bye Bye Loves: Bath and Body Products

photo from
Lush - Pop in the Bath Bubble Bar - 3.5oz. $6.95
I got 4 super bubbly baths out of this bubble bar.  I should have taken a photo before using it because there is no packaging! So, sorry for the stock photo above :) If you are new to Lush and bubble bars, you just crumble a bit of it under running water. It smells like bergamot, lemon and mandarin and it makes a crazy amount of bubbles.  It is also moisturizing.  My skin feels so soft after using this bubble bar.  Pop in the Bath is one of my favorites and I will definitely repurchase.

Bath and Body Works - Very Merry Cranberry Bubble Bath - 12 fl oz  $10.50 Holiday Collection
Yup, another embarrassingly old product from Bath & Body Works! But, now it is gone!  I really liked this bubble bath. My boyfriend did, too. He never recognized the fragrance but always asked what it was after I used it, lol. I answered "Very Merry Cranberry" so many times that by the end of the bottle I would finally say "What do you think it is!?!"  It had a nice, sweet, crisp cranberry scent and made lots and lots of bubbles.  I just may pick up another if they release it again this winter, which they probably will :)

Bath and Body Works - Vanilla Bean Noel Body Lotion -
I forgot to include this one in last month's Bye Bye Loves.  This is a staple body lotion for me in the colder weather months.  Something about the sweet, sugar cookie like smell is just so warm and cozy!  I buy a new one (or two) every Holiday so I am never without it.  I will occasionally use it in the Spring & Summer, but I always use it in the Fall & Winter and whenever I do, I get compliments on the fragrance.

Elariia - Rain Body Cream with Aloe Vera and Mint - 7oz  $24.50 no longer available
I'm sad that this one is now discontinued! The scent is amazing.  It is fresh and clean with a green note that smells a bit like fresh cut grass.  It feels really moisturizing but it is still easily absorbed and does not leave that sticky feeling on my skin that some heavier creams do.  I would repurchase this if it was still available.  I guess I will have to try some of the other fragrances that Elariia offers in this body cream.

Le Couvent des Minimes - Honey & Shea Repairing Hand Cream - 1.7oz $14
This is my all time favorite hand cream! I bought an embarrassing amount of these when they were discontinued at Bath and Body Works, but I am so glad I did!  I got an mazing deal on them, but I will certainly pay full price for them at when I run out. I'm just so glad that they are still available somewhere!  I LOVE the honey fragrance and the cream is so thick and moisturizing.  I shudder to think what my hands would look like without this cream.

Le Couvent des Minimes - Gardener's Hand Healer - 2.6oz $18
This hand cream feels the same to me as the Honey & Shea Repairing Hand Cream, just with a different scent.  This one has a crisp, lemon and verbena scent.  I like this fresh fragrance for the Spring and Summer when I just so happen to do a lot of gardening :)  I highly recommend checking out this hand cream when your hands are in need of some extra help.  It is a few dollars more than the Honey Cream, but the tube is larger so it is a better value.  I will certainly be repurchasing this one, too.

Have you tried any of these products before? What did you think?
