Bath and Body Works Favorite Haul-iday Shower Gels | #ChicSassyMomFinds

Oh my, here I go again with Bath and Body Works...oh well, still as addicted as ever before.

Pre-Black Friday sale, there's this really amazing deal for all shower gels and foam baths. I just couldn't resist it. My thoughts πŸ€”...some for gifting, most for me. Hah. 🀫

Shower Gel overload. Happiness. 
You ought to know that I'm also an essential oils fangirl, so the Aromatherapy line is a must-hoard. That, plus I destress with bubble bath, and they do make a nice luxurious foam bath. (So sad, they're out of the Mint Leaf and Bergamot line, which I adore and hoarded last year.) Glad I found something to fancy like crazy...Vanilla Bean.

I just can't get enough of Vanilla Bean. 
I'm such a hoarder fangirl. Once I commit myself to something, say to a brand, I remain faithful and loyal shopaholic through and through. Both good and bad. πŸ˜…Oh well, indeed, life is boring, when you don't have deliveries to look forward to. Cheers! ✌🏻

#GoNative Love at First Try | #ChicSassyMomFinds

Hello, cinggus! πŸ€—Hope you all had a meaningful Thanksgiving day. As always, I've been busy good. And my, between Black Friday sale and real life drama, I'm swamped. But I've been (sort of) updating my IG @chicsassymom (please do check it out, share likes #sharingiscaring ). Here's a new favorite personal care product that I've been meaning to rave about, Native Deodorant.

Native Deodorant Sample Pack $30+ Coconut Vanilla, Unscented, Lavender and Rose, Eucalyptus & Mint (travel size)
Native Deodorant, how I love thee. Let me count the ways. 

In love with Native Deodorant Coconut Vanilla
What I love about it? I love the scent. I'm very, very particular with scent and I tend to stick to a brand that I adore, so far the Coconut Vanilla is love. It evokes that warm and cozy feel when you apply it. But, it's not overpowering and lasting at least for me, it works for me because I want my perfume scent to linger, not my deodorant or my clothes's fabric softener (Downy scent haha πŸ˜…). But still, nice scent is relative. To each his own.

It's grainy at the onset when you apply it, but it does "melt" and dissipate nicely. So no white thingy that goes to your clothes. It feels silky dry. Foremost, I remain unscented. I like that. So it means no Body Odor. I don't have rashes or hives. And more importantly, it doesn't darken my underarm. I'm proud to say that I don't have dark underarms. I swear, flabby, yes, but not dark albeit I shave. ✌🏻

Chic and Sassy Mom Tip: True story, some products especially APDO (anti-perspirant and deodorant) can cause rashes given you use it to your sensitive underarm areas. It can be with the same brand, but different forms (cream vs. solid), still can cause reaction. So foremost, do patch test.

Well, about the anti-perspirant, it was my concern back when I was in the Philippines, but I don't really sweat in the Bay Area (San Francisco, California) because of the weather. Even last summer, so I couldn't really talk about this benefit if you're after this. Native Deodorant per se acts as anti-perspirant by naturally absorbing the moisture. But here's the difference about deodorant and anti-perspirant as per the brand site... "Anti-perspirant prevents you from sweating. That is, the aluminum contained in anti-perspirant acts as a plug on your body’s sweat ducts and prevents you from sweating and releasing other byproducts of sweat. Deodorant works by eliminating and absorbing the moisture and odors associated with sweat."

Ingredients. It's safe and effective. Aluminum and Paraben Free. 
This comes in a solid stick form, and it's an adjustment because I was a cream user. Having said that, so my only gripe is it so messy to open and close so I always have to use a tissue when I open it. Because the formula thingy goes to the cover.

One stick last a looong while, I have mine since August, and I'm just still on Coconut & Vanilla.

I've been a Secret-user for life, until I made a switch to natural deodorant. Not toxic and effective, I'm sold! So far, I'm glad I did. It works for me. Consider making the switch to Native Deodorant, check it out here, just remember to patch test, no sweat, you're set! Cheers! ✨

Bath and Body Works Wallflowers Haul | #FavoriteScents #ChicSassyMomFinds

Hello, friends! πŸ€—Because I'm still on the running of America's next top scented home, we just can't get enough of having all kinds of home fragrance available out there... candles, Scentsy and now wallflowers too. Truly, because a scent can make memories come alive, there's no time like today to get all our favorite Christmas scents from Bath and Body Works. 

For wonderful Christmas time...Champagne Toast, Fresh Sparkling Snow, Fresh Balsam, Peppermint Brownie, and Lavender Vanilla (room scents for sweet dreams)
Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I have never ending addiction to shop at Bath and Body Works whenever possible. Hah. Usually, I tend to haul Fresh Balsam and we have it all year long. But because I usually take my trip to BBW for the post-Christmas sale, so what was mostly left was Fresh Balsam. So on the recent wallflowers sale (only for $2.50+), I was still able to call dibs on these select Christmas scents. I adore Champage Toast! The Fresh Sparkling Snow is as nice but only few stocks left.  Oh my, now I truly have to get more of these. 

There are a lot of pretty, themed and decorative wallflowers fragrance plugs available,  but I had to go for a basic sensor night light for our bathroom to not obstruct the wall cabinet. 

Bath and Body Works Champagne Toast wallflowers. 
Here's to styling our home with fragrance...Cheers! ✨

Confession time. This is my first Clinique purchase. I don't really need another lipstick, let alone 20 of them. But my, it's too good not to buy. Honestly, I didn't even know how much savings I'm getting. I just thought, $49.50 for twenty shades, what's not to love?! So I swatched.

Clinique Chubby Stick™ lip colour swatches. Sorry, not much of browns and nudes so I didn't try them out. 
I've heard so much ravings about the Chubby Stick. But at first look and try, I like that they're so easy to apply. No frills. Plus, this time of the year, my lips can use extra moisturizing. The layering and mixing-and-matching also got me, just how I like to own my scent , a one-of-a-kind ChicSassyMom's lip colour sounds appealing. So yes, let's do this!

Me, myself & I *dreaming of the next selfie with these πŸ’‹
Oh by the way, I got these in Macy's, but just in case, shopping online at Macy's sounds also a good idea as there's gift with purchase offers, more freebies. Yay!

P.S. I love you lipsticks! πŸ˜˜πŸ’„
