Nikory Bath Treats Haul!!

 On Wednesday, October 12, I participated in Nikory Bath Treats Scavenger Hunt on her Facebook page and I was 1 of the 3 winners!!! I was SO excited to win because I have read EXCELLENT reviews of her bar soaps and wanted to give them a try for myself.
Once on her website, I could not decide which bar of soap I wanted to receive for my prize, so I decided to order one as well :)
I ordered the "BerryLicious" and requested "Chance" for my prize. I figured it would be a sample, but NO, I won a FULL SIZE bar of soap!! I placed the order and claimed my prize around 10pm EST and my order was shipped Priority USPS with my prize the very next day, SUPER FAST turn around time!
Now, onto the exciting part of this blog, the pictures! :)

Here is what everything looked like when I pulled it out of the bubble mailer. LOVE the bright colored tissue paper!

This is the BerryLicious soap that I ordered. This particular soap was from her clearance section and was $3.00 for a 5.50oz bar, which is a GREAT price. You'll have to check to see if it's still available (Her artfire shop is only open Mon-Fri). The scent description on the packaging reads: "A wonderful aromatic blend of boysenberries, elderberries, strawberries, guava, and pomegranate with a down of soft vanilla." I personally love it because I love fruity scents!

Here is the "Chance" soap that I received as my Scavenger Hunt prize. This soap is located under the SOAP section in her Artfire shop. This 5.70oz bar retails at $5.00 plus shipping. The scent description on the packaging reads: "A fragrance that embraces the aroma of a successful, ambitious woman who loves the finer things in life. This fragrance is a blend of citron, water hyacinth, jasmine, iris, teakwood, vetiver, patchouli, amber, and white musk." I really wanted this one since my husband's name is Chance and judging my the scent when I opened it, it's a scent that we will both be able to use :)

I received SEVERAL samples in this package and there is not one that I don't like, which surprises me because there are quite a few that are not bakery or fruity. Below you will find each sample:

 Chocolate Pumpkin Orange Soap Sample (the top is even sprinkled with cocoa powder) Scent Description: "A luscious blend sweet, rich chocolate and pumpkin blended with sweet orange essential oil."

Autumn Magik Soap Sample (this particular sample has a copper sheen to it)

Honey So Yummy Soap Sample. Scent Description: "Notes of Citrus, Honey-floral Bouquet, peach, apple and toffee, woodsy , musky. This is a dupe for HIWTK". The full size bar has a honeycomb pattern on top :)

Twigs N Berries Soap Sample (This sample has green glitter sprinkled on the top of it). Scent Description: "A fruity floral combination of strawberries, oranges, and apples; accompanied by sweet floral aromas of jasmine, rose geranium, and oakmoss."

 Shelter Soap Sample (This sample has blue mica sprinkled on the top of it). Scent Description: "This is a lush dupe for Comforter; An earthy element is created with patchouli, while fresh minty pennyroyal lifts the spicy tones. Sweet vanilla and soft musk are carefully balanced at the base of the scent.
Orange, bergamot, clove, mint, musk vanilla, patchouli."

Raspberry Sorbet Soap Sample (This one has glitter, sprinkles, AND a red sprinkle to make it look like a cherry on top). I LOVE this scent!!

Twilight Woods Soap Sample. Scent Description: "Juicy Berry, Soft Mimosa, Apricot Nectar, Vanilla Musk, Sensual Amber, Precious Woods.
Dupe for BBW twilight woods."

Vampire Kiss Soap Sample. Scent Description: "A distinctive fragrance with a sensation of texture, warmth, and femininity. Contains bottom notes of sandalwood, cedarwood, amber and vanila with alluring tops notes of bergamot, lavender and coriander."

"Chance" Body Frosting Sample.

 Purple Hooters Solid Perfume (I put this on right away because it smells SOOO good!). Scent Descriptions: "This fragrance is a wonderful blend of sparkling strawberries, raspberries, citrus greenery, and soft florals."

 Here's a photo of everything I received! I will definitely keep Nikory Bath Treats in mind when I start to run low on these items!! I would highly recommend that you check out her shop! Be sure to send her some love on Facebook too :)

If you're a Wax Addict....

 If you are a wax addict like me, be sure to grab one of the these Tantalizing Sampler boxes before they are all gone!
These boxes just went on sale 10/1/11 at midnight and there are only a certain number of them up for grabs.
Once they're gone, they're gone for the rest of the month.

Sinful Scents samples are included in this months boxes. I sent in a variety of Lip Candy as well as Sweet Tart (now known as Booty Call) Skull shaped Soy Tarts and Pumpkin Marshmallow Pie (now known as Passionate Pumpkin).


 Full Size Sampler Box comes with up to 22 different shops, so that's up to 22 samples for the low price of $20.00 (including shipping). There were less than 40 of these when I checked about 1:30am EST.

Mini Sampler Boxes are filled with 9 samples from 9 shops for the low price of $10.00 (including shipping).
There were only about 5 of these left when I checked about 1:30am EST.
