Everyday, Budget-Friendly Pampering : Bodycology Review and Giveaway

On May 12, 2011, by Glenda Embree- BusyAtHome

Since most of you will realize this is our third project with Bodycology, it will come as no surprise that I absolutely love them!  Spa treatments and exotic beauty products are simply not in our family budget, but I never feel deprived or like I’m missing out, because I was fortunate enough to discover Bodycology [...]

Since most of you will realize this is our third project with Bodycology, it will come as no surprise that I absolutely love them!  Spa treatments and exotic beauty products are simply not in our family budget, but I never feel deprived or like I’m missing out, because I was fortunate enough to discover Bodycology products back in 2009.  Their fragrances rival any expensive “aromatherapy” concoction you will find on the market and they are available at a fraction of the price.

I never have to take the time to drive to some exclusive, expensive boutique or spa to experience these high quality, inexpensive body care products.  It’s as simple as a trip down the health and beauty aisle at my local Wal-Mart, not to mention many other local and national chains.  And whether I’m making a purchase for myself or putting together a fun gift basket for a friend, I can find a wonderful variety of products at prices I can afford.  Wouldn’t they be perfect for a bridal shower or as  a present for a new mom?  Imagine the awesome gifts you can create!  And when bargains like the current Sweet Petals special at Wal-Mart are available, it’s time to stock up for future gifts!  Be sure to see if the Wal-Mart in your area is carrying it.

 

The beautiful basket of Sweet Petals products I reviewed from Bodycology. (minus the Body Cream which had been claimed by my daughter). From left to right: travel-sized fragrance mist, full-sized fragrance mist, hand sanitizer, gift set with body cream, fragrance mist and soft, fuzzy socks, full-sized shower gel and full-sized body lotion.

I received an amazing gift basket of Bodycology Sweet Petals products for this review.  It is every product in the Sweet Petals Collection.  The cool part is that since this same set is on special all through May at Wal-Marts across the United States, you can experience it an affordable price, too!  Somehow, as I was taking this picture, I missed that the full-sized Body Cream was absent from the set.  It had already been claimed and spirited away by one of our daughters, who became an instant fan of the sweet, summery scent.

 

The body cream missing from my original picture. :)

 

What does Sweet Petals smell like? — those moments in late spring, when you know summer is just around the corner.  The most fragrant flowers are blooming and berries have started to set on in the gardens, orchards and brambles.  The aroma is floral and fruity, all at the same time.  It lingers and uplifts your spirit as you go through your day.  It’s feminine and breezy.  It makes me want to wear a sundress and sandles and take a walk in an English garden.  :)   The Bodycology website describes the fragrance as “the heavenly scent of sweet pea mingled with berries to give you a brighter spirit and positive outlook.”  They are 100% correct!

My favorite things about Bodycology products?

  1. Affordable – It’s not a big splurge to own them.  Easy on the budget, they can be an everyday luxury.
  2. Fragrance – There is a fragrance that can match every personality, mood and season.  They are long-lasting and stay with you through the day.
  3. Variety – Each fragrance is available in several formats, allowing you to be able to layer the scents and accommodate many different skin care needs.
  4. Many of the products are perfect for conditioning and nourishing my skin with ingredients like Moisturizing Aloe Vera, Shea Butter and Vitamins E & C.

Generous beyond belief, Bodycology is once again sponsoring a fabulous giveaway, in which one very lucky Busy-at-Home reader will win the same fantastic Sweet Petals Collection Gift Basket that I had the good fortune to review.  Wouldn’t you love to have this wonderfully pampering and luxurious collection for yourself?  Be sure you take the time to enter, below!

It’s time!  It’s here!  At midnight on September 16 (CST), it will all be over and some of you will be the winners of the over $1500 in prizes being sponsored here at Busy-at-Home for our Christmas at Home: A Celebration event!!!!   That means today, September 14, is the last day to complete any Bonus entries.  At midnight tonight, those are all going away and being replaced by the official Blogmania entry page, which can only be submitted one time on the 15th and one time on the 16th.

Dinner plate detail.

Salad plate detail. Aren't they gorgeous!!???!!!

To inspire you to catch up on your bonuses and remind you how awesome our Busy at Home sponsors are, I want to share the pictures of the new Winter Song china from Lenox that arrived here, a couple of days ago.  It is even more beautiful than the stock pictures I shared with you in my earlier Lenox review.  The place setting includes a dinner plate, salad plate, mug and and a bowl.  It will make a gorgeous Christmas table, but I also love the idea that this pattern translates to use all winter long with its lovely winter scenes.  The branches, berries, greenery and pinecones twining around and across the pieces are perfect table complements throughout the whole season and you will fall in love with the hand-painted birds perched delicately on the salad plate.  I know I have.  You are going to get to see it many times, in pictures of delicious food, for my upcoming recipe posts!

Attention to the most beautiful detail - even INSIDE the bowl!

Beautiful bowl!

Bodycology Brown Sugar Vanilla Gift Basket Review & Giveaway

On September 11, 2010, by Glenda Embree- BusyAtHome

It’s no secret that I LOVE Bodycology products.  Bodycology is one of the most generous sponsors we’ve had here at Busy-at-Home.  This is their second giveaway with us and for Blogmania they are pulling out all the stops!  I received a gorgeous Christmas Gift basket filled with Brown Sugar Vanilla products in order to complete [...]

My girls and I couldn't wait to open this beautiful Bodycology Gift Basket.

It’s no secret that I LOVE Bodycology products.  Bodycology is one of the most generous sponsors we’ve had here at Busy-at-Home.  This is their second giveaway with us and for Blogmania they are pulling out all the stops!  I received a gorgeous Christmas Gift basket filled with Brown Sugar Vanilla products in order to complete this review.  A lucky Busy-at-Home reader will win the same gift basket in our Blogmania event, September 15 & 16.

Close-up of the Brown Sugar Vanilla products in the basket.

Brown Sugar Vanilla products from Bodycology are my most favorite.  The fragrance is sweet, homey and comfortable.  It’s like being wrapped in your grandma’s favorite quilt and eating her fresh sugar cookies.  The luxurious, creamy smooth products and the delicious aroma are the prefect package for a pampering, relaxing spa experience at home.  There is no better way to blend comfort and luxury in one product!  You won’t believe everything that is included in this beautiful Bodycology gift basket!  I won’t re-review the products we have talked about in previous reviews, however I’m excited to tell you about a few new ones.

  1. full-size Bath and Shower Gel
  2. full-size Body Lotion

    Creamy, luxurious Brown Sugar Vanilla Body Cream from Bodycology.

  3. full-size Body Cream – Bodycology’s Body Creams are a deep, rich moisturizing experience. The thick, smooth body cream leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed without a heavy greasy feel.  Body creams are enriched with Vitamins E & C, shea butter and aloe vera.  I’m a bare-foot girl, most of the time, regardless of the season or the weather and my feet take a LOT of abuse.    Bodycology body cream smooths away all the roughness and is the cool, refreshing finish to a perfect pedicure.  Also, as I have gotten older, I notice my skin being much more dry in the winter months.  The perfect solution for smooth, moisture-rich skin in the cold, dry seasons of the year, has been daily use of Bodycology Body Cream.
  4. full-size Body Spray

    Brown Sugar Vanilla Antibacterial Scrubbing Hand Soap

  5. full-size Antibacterial Scrubbing Hand Soap – Bodycology’s antibacterial scrubbing handsoaps contain Vitamin E, shea butter and aloe vera.  They kill germs while cleaning your hands and like the foaming hand wash, leave skin smooth and moisturized.  The major difference with this effective handsoap is the tiny scrubbing beads that are distributed throughout the gel.  The sink in our laundry/utility room is the PERFECT spot for the scrubbing variety of Bodycology soaps.  When I come in from working in the garden or flowerbeds, it provides a serious  and thorough cleaning experience without drying out my skin.

    Brown Sugar Vanilla Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer

  6. full-size Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer – Bodycology’s hand sanitizers are great to just toss in your purse and have with you wherever you go.  They kill up to 99% of germs without water.  There is no alcohol smell when it is applied and it allows you to moisturize your skin at the same time as sanitizing them, as it contains aloe vera.  Immediately after application, I did note a slight tacky/sticky feeling.  Once the hand sanitizer had completely dried there was no residue and my skin was moisturized.

    Pink Slipper Socks and Sample Size Gift Set

  7. Gift Set with Sampler Sizes of Bath and Shower Gel, Body Cream and Body Mist plus a pair of warm, fuzzy, pink slipper-socks. This sampler gift set is just one example of the many different gift set packages you will be able to find from Bodycology throughout the Christmas holiday season.  I look forward to picking up several every year, for gifts and some just for me. :)    You will find that Bodycology products are such an affordable gift option, that is received with excitement.  They’re definitely a great value for the cost.

I know you’ll all want to win this fabulous gift basket and to help increase your chances for this and every prize drawing in our Blogmania Giveaway event, I am providing one more Bonus Entry as part of this Bodycology Review.

  1. “Like” Bodycology on Facebook and post this note on their wall.  I’m visiting from Busy-at-Home http://busy-at-home.com/blog/bodycology-brown-sugar-vanilla-gift-basket-review-giveaway/.  I can’t wait for Blogmania 2010!  Thanks for being a sponsor!
  2. BONUS ENTRIES HAVE NOW EXPIRED.  Don’t miss the main event!  Enter now at our main Blogmania entry page!

I received the Bodycology Christmas gift basket in order to conduct this review of the products and Bodycology will provide the same gift basket to one Blogmania winner. The views and opinions expressed are wholly my own. No payment was received to write this review.

Who Wants Bonus Entries!?! Who Wants Three!!!?

On July 26, 2010, by Glenda Embree- BusyAtHome

I wanted to write this morning to make sure everyone understands the entry process for Blogmania.  Even if you only submit one entry, that one entry will be entered in EVERY single “Christmas at Home: A Celebration!” giveaway.  So, if by September 15, you have completed 30 Bonus entries, you will have 30 Bonus entries [...]

I wanted to write this morning to make sure everyone understands the entry process for Blogmania.  Even if you only submit one entry, that one entry will be entered in EVERY single “Christmas at Home: A Celebration!” giveaway.  So, if by September 15, you have completed 30 Bonus entries, you will have 30 Bonus entries in EVERY single one of our Busy-at-Home giveaways.  This really increases your odds of winning one of our prize packages on Sept 16, because at midnight Sept 14, Bonus Entry opportunities go away.  You won’t have the option of going back to get them.  People who come to the main event on Sept 15 and 16, will be allowed ONE ENTRY each of those two days, so they will have missed out on all the extra chances to win.  I’m so glad you are all making the most of the opportunities, because our sponsors are amazing and have been incredibly generous.  The prize list (see the list at the bottom of this post) is growing and it will make celebrating Christmas at home a blast!

    Bodycology® Review and Giveaway!!!

    On June 28, 2010, by Glenda Embree- BusyAtHome

    I love fragrance!!!  In candles, soaps, lotions, perfume, air freshener, baking, newly mowed hay, spring rain…you get the idea.  Aroma can bring back wonderful memories, relax your mind and body, energize you, or even soothe you.  Fragrance in any product can be powerful and Bodycology offers us the opportunity to experience irresistible scents at affordable [...]

    I love fragrance!!!  In candles, soaps, lotions, perfume, air freshener, baking, newly mowed hay, spring rain…you get the idea.  Aroma can bring back wonderful memories, relax your mind and body, energize you, or even soothe you.  Fragrance in any product can be powerful and Bodycology offers us the opportunity to experience irresistible scents at affordable prices.  I love their products and have used them, often, here at home and as well-received additions to gift baskets for friends and family.

    As busy moms on a budget, we don’t often take the time or want to spend the money for even small luxuries for ourselves.  Bodycology makes it easy and affordable to experience a little luxury in our everyday moments.  Their products are as easy to find as your local Wal-Mart or other discount store and affordable on even a frugal budget.  I can’t wait to introduce you to the wonderful options so you can experience them yourself.

    I had the opportunity, this week to review some of the newest products Bodycology has to offer.  Not only do I get to share my experience with you, but Bodycology has generously provided for a Busy-at-Home reader to receive a new Shower Gel & Foaming Bath, along with a Body Cream in the luscious  Midnight Garden Fragrance.  Be sure to keep reading for the exciting details of this Giveaway!

    I was delighted to receive a new, longer lasting Body Mist in White Gardenia, Anti-bacterial Foaming Hand Soap in White Gardenia and Shower Gel & Foaming Bath in the Midnight Garden Fragrance.  Midnight Garden happens to be my favorite Bodycology fragrance, so that was an especially welcome gift, but I wasn’t prepared for how much I would also love the other two products.

    Body Mist, Shower Gel & Foaming Bath and Antibacterial Foaming Hand Soap I was sent to review.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find that the body mist is light and refreshing.  It didn’t leave that oily residue on my skin that I have found to be so common with other body mists.  It actually made my skin feel a little cooler, fresher and somewhat smooth/softened.  I was curious then about the ingredients and found that it contained aloe vera to condition and hydrate the skin.  The fragrance stayed with me the entire day in a very subtle way.  I love that it wasn’t over-powering.

    White Gardenia Body Mist

    You HAVE to try the new line of anti-bacterial foaming hand soap from Bodycology.  This is not just a  handful of bubbly fluff.  You know what I mean if you have tried some other brands.  The Bodycology Foaming Hand Soap only required one pump to produce a  thick and creamy lather that wasn’t overly sudsy or bubbly.  It rinsed cleanly and left my hands feeling smooth and hydrated.  No dry skin!  That’s a huge deal for me!  The room where I washed my hands still had a hint of the lingering fragrance in the air.  Clean hands, soft skin, softly fragranced environment.  You’d never suspect it is antibacterial.  Absolutely love it!

    White Gardenia Anti-bacterial Foaming Hand Soap

    Are you ready for a luxurious aromatherapy experience that fits your frugal budget and won’t require any extra time out of your busy schedule?  Bodycology Shower Gel & Foaming Bath Wash is just what you need.  Like the Hand Soap, I was delighted that this was not just some perfumed, fluffy bubbles.  The lather was thick, rich, silky and luxurious.  I felt clean, but it didn’t dry my skin and the fragrance was wonderful.  It made those few quiet moments of my day incredibly relaxing (and too short!) -  :)   It was like a mini spa treatment, right at home.
