Day 5: Benetint!

I don't know if you can see it on my hand. It is a slight pink on my hand. It comes out really red and a liquid form, then you blend it out. You can put it on your cheeks and lips. I always wanted this! It leaves my cheeks and lips looking rosy. I have a sample from The Balm called Stainiac in Beauty Queen and it is very similar to this.

Lush's Magic Wand Bubble Bar

This is one of the cutest things I got from Lush. It is a wand and it has a little bell attached to it! It smells like candy. I love the descriptions Lush has: "Conjure up candy suds, Our customers can never seem to get enough of our sugary Snow Fairy fragrance, so we created this fabulously fun pink wand especially for our biggest Snow Fairy fans. Close your eyes, swish your Magic Wand in the tub as it fills, and your wish for mounds of sweet Snow Fairy-scented bubbles will be granted! There's enough magic in this wand for several baths full of candy-scented bubbles and sweet pink waters, so pop it on the side of your tub for the next time you need a magical bubble bath. Features: Magic Wand shares its candy-sweet fragrance with our best-selling Snow Fairy shower gel. How to: Run a warm bath, hold your Magic Wand by the stick and swish it around in the water."

Review: This makes your bath water turn pink. It has bubbles. It reminds me of a bubble bath I had when I was little I don't know if they still make it. It's called "Mr. Bubbles."

It is probably less expensive than the Lush one. I was trying to figure out what it smells like. It smells like candy and roses to me. It was really nice. I'm glad you can use it more then once. I remember taking bubble baths at my grandma's house. She would use detergent soap, and that worked just as good. I would play with mermaids and little pills that when put in the water would turn into sponges of all different shapes. My friend and I were talking about this and she remembers the dinosaur ones. I think I had those too! I read a book when I took my bubble bath. It was nice and relaxing. I've become a bath person!


  1. I must insist on how jealous I am of those bath goodies, I would be childishly happy playing with the wand XD I had mermaids too, I had the first wave Ariel doll by Mattel, with her tail and whatever, but they didn't intend her to be in the bath and the tail lost its emerald green color after being wet ¬¬ my bath water was fabulously green, though. But serously, that was not a bright idea XD

  2. I need to find the mermaids I used to play with. They had plastic bodies and tails, but the hair was like barbie hair. They were little, not the size of a Barbie. Don't be jealous.

  3. I have poly pocket mermaids (the old super tiny poly pockets I mean) all the way to a porcelain Ariel by Brass Key, and I am myself a mermaid so I... am still jealous of your toys ;_; I just love mermaids.
