Now for the mountie massage bar. It's supposed to smell like creamed coconut, vanilla and jasmine. It doesn't..It's not a TERRIBLE smell but I really would not like to smell like it.. It smells similar to the Nutts massage bar except its more earthy and piney and not as sweet.
Is it just me? I mean did anyone try these two products and like them? I just feel so let down. I bought 2 of these gifts. So when I got the first one and didn't like it, I was hoping maybe it had just spoiled or it was just a bad batch or SOMETHING. But unfortunately, to my dismay the second gift smelled the same..
PS: If anyone actually loved this gift and wants it, just let me know!

They look like cupcakes right?! Or those little tarts you buy in the bakery section at your local grocery store. Actually these are wax tarts from Country Home Scent. It's an etsy store that I came across last week and man, these little things are AMAZING.
First of all they are so adorable. Each one to it's own, they are decorated according to scent. For example, the Pumpkin pie one that I got has an orange bottom, a lighter top and is sprinkled with cinnamon. Like a real pumpkin pie! Secondly, they are highly highly highly scented.. I mean they didn't just fill up the a room in an hour, they filled up my entire 3-storey home. From my basement where I was burning the Cinnamon Buns tart, to my bedroom which is on the top floor; my entire house smelled like sticky yummy frosted cinnamon buns. The scent was dead on...Like I wanted to eat the air. So about the tarts, they are wax-blend tarts containing the highest amount of fragrance oil that could possibly be put in. Each tart weighs 1 0z..I believe.. and the tart that I was burning was in the warmer for about 4 hours and there still was quite a bit left so they do last for quite a long time. In her etsy store she has SO SO SO many different scents and you can also pick and choose with her "stock up sampler" and "choose a dozen" deals.

This soap is just beautiful it is like a piece of art. Honey and brown sugar sandwiched in between a creamy off-white colour and a sweet pink strawberry-scented base. To me this smells like a delicious strawberry parfait. It has more of a strawberry yogurt smell than a stawberry shortcake. It's a very juicy strawberry smell, perfect for the summer. Also the honey-brown sugar middle would be perfect for exfoliating legs, arms and anything else we feel like showing off in the warmer months coming. If you like the smell of Strawberry Feels Forever massage bar from Lush, you'll definitely LOVE this soap. AND $5 FOR 5.5OZ?!? Stock up before they're all gone!

Lucious Mango/ Exotic Papaya Coconut Milk Soap
[ingredients: saponified vegetable oils of (olive, rice bran, coconut, organic palm and shea butter), essential oils, natural colour, natural vitamin E, natural vegetable colouring.]
Tropical orange shea butter bottom, with a shea butter-coconut milk top, sprinkled with exfoliating coconut flakes. This soap is a vacation in your shower. The smell is very true to name with scents of mango, papaya, passionfruit, coconut and satsuma. Definitely another keeper for the summer and if you just love it too much to use it, the vibrant orange bottom definitely gives you a reason to showcase it in your bathroom instead!
