Holiday Gift Guide: ElliBathNBeauty Review & Giveaway



I love bath products. There are few things I enjoy more than luxurious body butter, delicious body spray, and wonderfully scented body wash. They are one of the few things I have a hard time resisting. I seem to have a compulsion to buy these things, even when I don't really need them. It never hurts to spoil yourself, right?


Some of the best products I've found are made by an Etsy shop called ElliBathNBeauty. I found them while looking for Twilight themed fragrances for Ashley. The shop carries a large variety of mouth watering scents, so even is vampires aren't your thing, you are sure to find something you will love! The owner, Lindsay sent me several products to review for y'all and I ordered a few things as well. Let me say right now that Lindsay is a doll, an absolute pleasure to work with. When it comes to customer service, this gal delivers!

From her Twilight line I was able to try the Jasper, The White Room, Edward, Rosalie, and The Cottage. Here are my thoughts on the scents I have used:
  • The Jasper moisturizing body butter and hair & body mist are heavenly. The scent is pretty much exactly as she described it in the store.
  • The White Room is another of my favorite scents. I wore the hair and body mist everyday for almost a month, that is how much I enjoyed it. It's scent takes you away to a tropical paradise. It is a nice, light, crisp scent.
  • Edward is the only scent I was disappointed with. In my opinion the blend of fragrances did not work well and it smelled awful on me. Lindsay tells me she is still working to get the perfect scent blended, so hopefully she will get it figured out soon so we can all enjoy the essence of this wonderful character. *I just heard from Lindsay. She says "I think I have a much better Edward version now, it's been going over well and I love it! It's a bit sweeter because I remember Bella describing his "sweet" scent. Of course it contains a more creamy Honey, softer Lilac, and a dry-down of sweet notes." She is going to send me a sample & I can't wait to try it! I'll let y'all know what I think after I receive it.*
  • The Rosalie scent I tried as body butter. It is a beautiful, feminine floral. You can't help but feel all girlie and sexy when you slather this on. My pal Lynette says it reminds her of "rose milk" a scent her grandmother wore. I don't know what "rose milk" smells like, but I can assure you Rosalie makes you feel like a girlie girl.
  • The Cottage scent came to me as whipped cream soap. Again, Lindsay's description of this is pretty much spot on. It smells floral and earthy at the same time. It honestly makes me think of a flower garden after a good rainstorm. I absolutely adore this scent!
I love that the body butter moisturizes without leaving a greasy feel. You get all that moisturizing goodness without the greasy gunk; I hate greasy feeling lotion, so this is a big favorite with me! The hair and body mist leaves a subtle fragrance, lasts a long time, and contains no alcohol, so it doesn't dry out your skin or hair. As for the whipped cream soap, it is amazing! It is amazing to wash with and makes the best shaving cream I've ever used. The scent lasts a long time and your skin feels so soft after you shower! My overall opinion on all these products is two huge thumbs up!

Any of these luscious products would make a fantastic gift for you or any of the ladies in your life! I recommend checking out the shop and ordering soon to insure delivery before the holidays. Since all these things are hand made, the sooner you order the better. If you order before November 20 you will be entered for a chance to "WIN a signed photo of Rob Pattinson! We're giving away this authentic, signed photo of Rob Pattinson portraying Edward in the delicious Baseball uniform! It's the wet signature and YOU can own it!" Get more details about that here.
