Show and Tell: Heaven Scent Boutique

Musings of A Beautiful Mess
Have you heard that Tara over at The Johnson's Have Angel Wings opened up an Etsy shop?! Did you ALSO hear that Heather gave her a brand new beautiful web page, too?! You can get WONDERFUL smelling scrubs and body frosting. She calls them body frosting because they are thick and oh so lovely on your skin.

This one is Butt Naked Whipped Body Frosting. Her description of it is: "Butt Naked is a wonderful blend of marshmallow, sugar, sweet heliotrope, honeydew, and vanilla….an exciting blend of pineapples, and tropical fruits." Her description is SPOT on! The smell is like tanning oil and it goes on SO smoothly. It did not leave me feeling greasy at all. When I put this one on, my husband immediately told me I smelled "sexy". SCORE!

This one is Celestial Waters. This one caught my eye right away! I love a fresh, clean and crisp smelling lotion and this one did NOT disappoint! She described it as: "Celestial Waters is a fresh ozone spiked with grapefruit, freesia and various sweet citrus essential fragrances. It will remind you of a relaxing day at the beach sipping on cocktails, soaking up the sun."

This beautiful pink one is Rockin Body Butter in Pink Champagne. This was one of my first choices because I LOVE pink and champagne is one of my favorites, as well. And the thought of combining the two had me bouncing up and down in my chair and rubbing my hands together in excitement. Her description is : "Pink Champagne is a soft fluffy strawberry scent with hints of a sparkling Champagne. One smell of this beautiful fragrance will have you longing for a girls night out on the town. Watch out, the boys might nibble on you!" When I opened this one my husband said "the whole room smells fruity. It's nice". I think that's man speak for "that smells really good on you. If I were a woman, I'd put it on".

And THEN I got a sugar scrub, too! It's called Sweet Sugar Scrub- Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. Her description is "Vanilla Buttercream Frosting is a soft buttery, vanilla scent that will remind you of your favorite frosting on a sweet vanilla cupcake." This stuff is AMAZING! When I opened up my box of goodies this one is the one that I smelled right away. I didn't even have to open any of the containers to smell them, the WHOLE box smelled good! This smell was what hit me first. I couldn't WAIT to take a bath and try it.

I've never used a sugar scrub before, only a salt scrub and I have to say that I MUCH prefer a sugar scrub. The sugar melts INTO my skin and made it feel SO soft. So soft, in fact, I emailed Tara and asked her if she put oils in it because my skin was so soft. Not oily, but so soft. She told me she did put some oil in it.

I also got two smaples in the box *YAY*. This one is Cinnamon Sugar Cookie. Her description is : "Cinnamon Sugar Cookies – Warm and fresh from the oven. This scent is a sweet and spicy blend of cinnamon and sugar with notes of vanilla frosting sneaking up to the top notes. Making these cookies delicious in every bite. Oh, wait a minute, these aren’t cookies! But it smells so good you’ll wish you had some milk." This one I have to hide from Peaches because she said she wants to smell like a sugar cookie all the time! I do share on occasion, but I am hording these for MYSELF! It REALLY does smell like a cinnamon sugar cookie!


And last but DEFINITELY not least, is another sample of Pink Sugar Cupcake. OH MY WORD! It smells SO good! I k now I've said that about eleventy billion times in this post and I'm GUSHING about these products, but it's TRUE! She described it as "Pink Sugar Cupcake is a sugary aroma that comes from ingredients you remember from your childhood. Made with hints of vanilla, caramel, and cotton candy along with a creamy, sugary vanilla frosting." Once again, she's 100% on her description. It smells WONDERFUL!

I seriously couldn't thank her enough for making these products because they are honestly the best lotions and scrubs I've ever used. I have NO idea how she makes these products, but she does and she does a damn good job! I don't like lotions or body butters that make me feel greasy. I hate lotions I get at the grocery store because they make my hands and legs feel like I have a layer of gunk on them. Plus *this is a really lame excuse* I have a touch screen phone and if my fingers are greasy, my phone won't work! My "touch" won't register on the phone and I won't get to the screen I need to go to. Tara's body frostings and body butters passed the phone test. After I used them, I could still use my phone. And since I use my phone ALL! THE! TIME! I was very very very happy.

I want to say a thank you to Heather. She Twittered me and TOLD me, not asked me, to pick out a product I wanted from Tarah's new shop. I agreed with her and said I was going to buy some, but she was not taking no for an answer. This went on for about 4 messages and then I finally caved. She put in my order and when I got the confirmation email, I told her it was TOO much! Noway could I accept all of that. She didn't email me back...either she disagreed with my thinking or was just too busy to retract her order ;o) I am on my knees with gratitude and humbled beyond belief because of Heather's act of kindness. Not because I didn't expect Heather to be so kind, but because I didn't DO anything to receive such a gift. She disagreed with me when I told her that. All I can say is thank you to Heather for being so kind and compassionate and to Tarah for making such wonderful products. You both are amazing and I am lucky to have friends like you!

OK, now that I'm done gushing go over to Mel's bloghouse and see what everyone else is bringing to class and then go to Tara's site and order yourself some goodies!

P.S go over to Heather's blog and enter her giveaway for a tub of your VERY own Whipped Body Frosting in the scent of Heavenly!

I am scared to order some of those flavors now as I am so hard up for sugar. I might try to eat it.

Kymberli on July 23, 2009 at 1:17 PM said...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my products from Tarah's shop! I'm in love with air/water/rain types of scents. Heavenly is just that - pure heaven! I also have Baby Love, which I like to use after my nightly shower. It's like aromatherapy; it seems like I fall asleep easier with those scents swirling around me.

As soon as I got my order, I went right back to Tarah's and ordered more! EVERYONE should be running to buy some!

Heather is a sweetheart, isn't she? She's just so selflessly giving!

GeekByMarriage on July 23, 2009 at 1:39 PM said...

You guys are making me blush! Cut that out!

I put the Baby Love on the night before I went out of town. That was a week ago. I snuggled down in my bed last night and I could catch hints of the scent on my covers. Now THAT'S lasting power!

I will be putting up a giveaway for Heavenly on my blog this week. Check in with me and enter!

Kristin on July 23, 2009 at 1:57 PM said...

Heather totally rocks for giving you such a wonderful gift. I need to figure out a way to order some of these.

SassyIfLady on July 23, 2009 at 2:06 PM said...

Wow - they sound amazing. It is almost making me hungry reading your descriptions. Nice!

becomingwhole on July 23, 2009 at 2:20 PM said...

Mmmmm, they look really nice...wish my screen were scratch-n-sniff...

Cassandra on July 23, 2009 at 3:17 PM said...

Too bad there's no scratch and sniff on Show and Tell. Well, maybe not scratch, that would be bad for the computer.

We have Angel Wings on July 23, 2009 at 4:13 PM said...

D-

I am honored that you love my products so much! I am so glad that they work perfect for you and the scents last so long.

I just want to squeel with delight.

Thank you all so much for your kind words. I can't wait to whip some up for everyone.

I love your descriptions...I almost smashed my nose against the monitor to smell the lotions! I think I am going to have to buy some (Butt Naked and Cinnamon Sugar Cookie)!

Thanks for the awesome comment (heck yeah, I'm so a rockstar, lol) and the pat on the back!

The Steadfast Warrior on July 23, 2009 at 9:42 PM said...

Wow! These sound awesome, and with such ringing endorsements!! This could be dangerous...

kate on July 24, 2009 at 5:08 AM said...

Wow. That's so cool!


I used to work for Bath and Body Works, so I am a total whore for scented body products. I'll have to check that out.

sassy on July 24, 2009 at 6:19 AM said...

Mmmmn! I love scented body products - we have a small selection of them here in France, but there isn't that mmuch choice so I always stock up on visits o the US.

WiseGuy on July 24, 2009 at 7:37 AM said...

First of all, I think Heather's HTML skills ROCK! She is too good!


Second, if I ever sell things, you are writing the ad copies!


Happy ICLW

I've been trying ot various natural products since I am trying to get rid of anything with parabens in my house. These sound fascinating - I'll have to take a look!

Pink sugar cupcake sounds so divine and yummy... I mean relaxing.

Will have to look into what quarantine laws here say about importing - we are way too strict sometimes.

Kerri on July 25, 2009 at 6:58 PM said...

Yum, all of those flavors sound delicious...oh wait, they're not for eating, are they? :)

Thanks for visiting my blog!!

You got it!

Nice!!

They sound tasty!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have found that I am bulking up a little with running, but I prefer muscle on my legs than fat!!
I am finding running helps to relieve my stress and takes my mind off the TTC break I am on.
