#fridayfavorites – Washing stress away

My Friday Favorites today are for pampering myself, even if I only have time for a quick shower.



I love Philosophy’s shower gel/shampoo combos, especially at camp where the shower is rather small. Sephora’s out of the French Vanilla Bean shower gel, but they have Vanilla Birthday Cake. If I can’t find French Vanilla Bean, I might try that. I also might try the Melon Daiquiri scent, too. And I have mad love for the Josie Maran’s Argan Sugar Balm Body Scrub and Josie Maran’s Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter (I have the Vanilla Apricot, which they’re sold out of, but I’m trying not to panic about that. They’ll restock…right?). (I actually have mad love for everything Josie Maran, especially the Vanilla Apricot hand creme. YUM!)

My very favorite scents revolve around vanilla, preferably with some apricot or mango thrown in. (I’m a sucker for mango scent, though I’ve never eaten one.)

What’s your favorite scent?

    I miss Bath & Body Works Sun-Rippened Raspberry which they no longer make :( . Currently using their Bourban Strawberry & Vanilla which is my favorite of their current ones.

    I’m not a fan of perfumy scents, so tend to stick to the fruit-type scents (raspberry, strawberry, mango, or some type of citrus).

    Though to be honest, most of my lotions, etc (including all of my face stuff) are unscented. I just use the body cream.

    Bath & Body Works used to have one that I loved (something about Mandarin orange and something) but they stopped carrying it and I stopped going in the store. I haven’t been in one in ages because they seemed to move toward a perfume-based rather than natural scents.
