August 2013 CBV Order

I wasn't going to place a CBV order in August, but since Victoria had a 21% off sale, and I had a decent amount of money saved up in my paypal account (from various coupon apps such as Ibotta & SavingsStar), I decided why not stock up on some of my favorites because once the school year starts (in two days), I won't have any time to order, and I'll need my favorites to melt to destress!

Here's what I got... again, a small order of mostly my FAVORITE scents to last me until my next order (probably December or January).

Wax Gelato in Graceland Memories- This is a CAS I came up with, and probably the best one yet. It's a mixture of Elvis and Lavender & Basil. Yes, I know that sounds crazy, but I swear it's GOOD. Elvis is a mixture of Peanut Butter & Banana and Lavender & Basil is just a nice, clean soapy scent. Mixed together creates this wonderful, homey, clean scent. And, this baby is filled to the brim! I've tried Victoria's Scoop Some Scent (in fact, I have about 6 of them still). And, I definitely like this container better. But, it all depends on what you like... the SSS is a glass container (that you can get the cute little polka dots on, and this is a plastic container.


Cube Melts in Granny's Pie Crust & Caramelized Pralines- I'm not going to review these scents because I have 10,000 times before. Two of my absolute favorite CBV scents, and I'm so excited to try these cube melts. There are a TON in this container!

Scent Shot in Vanilla Cake Pops- So, if you know me, you know I hardly let anything cure before melting/burning unless it ABSOLUTELY needs it. And, unfortunately, this one does. As I'm smelling it, I get a vanilla scent with a hint of minty-ness (like muscle relaxer cream) to it. And, there is NO mint in this scent. It's supposed to be just a straight yummy vanilla cake scent. So, I'm going to let this one sit for a while, and I'll update on the boards once I melt it.

Scent Shot in Watermelon Lemon Lime Cranberry Fizz- On cold throw this reminds me SOOOOO much of Champagne Pomegranate, but with Watermelon and a slight Cranberry notes to it. Which would make sense. I can't wait to melt this, I have a feeling it will be a favorite of my hubby. Anything fruity and fizzy is great in his book!

Scent Shot Sidecar Annie (free)- I've been wanting to try this one since it came out, and it's nice. It's definitely complex and hard to describe, but you get the sweet tobacco leaf (don't worry, I HATE the smell of cigarette/chewing tobacco!!!!), ceder wood (like an old, antique dresser smell), and vanilla. I can't wait to see what this is like melting.

Sugar Scrub in Love Shack- Before Melissa came out with sugar scrub, I had never really used any. Now I can't live without it. I use it EVERY single day in the shower on my entire body (sometimes even my face!). This stuff is great. Not only does it exfoliate (and is great before shaving), it smells sooo good, and I can smell it on me hours after showering! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product, and I will never be without it!

Cocoa Butter Melt- This product sounded so interesting, I had to get it. I don't know what I was thinking when I ordered it and the name says COCOA, because when I smelled it, I was blown away by the chocolate scent, lol. It smells delicious and just by rubbing my fingers over this, I can tell it's going to be moisturizing. Melissa says this little bugger has soooo many uses. I think I'm going to use it as a lotion bar/body conditioner in this shower. But, she says it can even be used as a bath melt (no bath tub here *tear*), hot oil massage, etc. I have a feeling this might be something I can't be without either.
