Haul: The Bathing Garden Haul #7!

I am in love with The Bathing Garden.
And no, that's not some cheap ploy to make you buy all of the things.
I really believe that Shannon, the owner of TBG, makes great wax and bath/body products!
Plus, you should know by now that, if I don't like something, I won't sugar-coat it, I'll just tell you! We're all waxy friends here, right?
Well, Shannon has been restocking more frequently, and I was able to get my hands on some good stuff last week. Here's what I ended up buying!
In a previous order, she had sent me a Sleepy (pink sugar + peppermint) sugar scrub sample. It smelled WONDERFUL! I asked her if she planned on restocking it, and she said she would! How cool! I was able to pick up an 8oz. tub of Sleepy sugar scrub. I love Shannon's scrubs, they make your skin feel so silky smooth.
One more photos, scrub plus crystals on top. I can tell I am going to love this scrub, and I haven't even used all of the sample yet!
Samples first! She sent me a nice little thank you note, as always.
Then, for something different, she sent me two small packages of tarts, unlabeled and fragrant. I guess I have to take a stab at what these might be on my own! The purple one smells like lavender and apples, and I have no idea what the white one is. Smells good, though.

Then, we have a FULL clamshell of Pistachio Almond Pudding. This scent is to die for...I have been on a pistachio kick, and this has got to be the best one I've smelled yet. It's so good.

She also sent me a small container of Sugared Pie Crust sugar smells just like freakin' pie crust, good enough to eat, sugary, and has inspired me to make a pie on Monday! WOOHOO!
I got 4 clamshells total. The first two are:
  • Parisian Strawberry Fields: a really earthy yet sweet strawberry scent. It almost smells like the Bath & Body Works candle mixed with greenery. Just great!
  • Serendipity Cream Pie (repurchase): serendipity + coconut cream pie. Delicious. Good enough to eat (again, second time in this post). Yum!
  • Blackberry Jam & Lemon Curd: Shannon has one of the best lemon scents. It's so true, not bakery, not zesty, not cleaner...just....lemon! Her blackberry is mildly perfumey, but I think that together, this makes a great blend. Recommended by my waxy friend Karen (AKA: suukasi). I think I like this TIED with lemon curd and rose milk, which is equally as fabulous. But of course, I will let you know what I think while melting!
  • Cheshire Cat (repurchase): lemon, raspberry, and...possibly vanilla frosting? Buttercream? I don't remember, but again, fantastic scent.
Love the little embellishments Shannon uses on her clamshells! Sunflowery Cheshire Cat!
Three-toned! I also love the look of this!

That's my small Bathing Garden haul! Have you tried Shannon's stuff? Do you have anything that you love that you recommend? Let me know! 
(I have a lot of TBG to destash, and am in the process of putting boxes together)


  1. Another reason why wax makes life more awesome--it totally inspires us to bake pies and stuff :)
    Happy memorial day weekend!!

    1. Eaxctly!! I think I will try and make my own sugar crust, too! YUMM!!

      Happy Memorial day weekend to you, too! Any plans? Weather is supposed to be great!

    2. that sounds amazing! Do you have a "life" blog as well, I would be all over it!
      I'm working tomorrow but will take the pups for a long walk before my shift to enjoy our great weather. oh! and I agree with you about summers here inching up in degrees, it's so annoying. 72! we like our 72 degrees!

    3. I thought you wrote, "do you have a life?" and seriously laughed my head off, LOL! No, I don't have a life blog, this is pretty much it! :)

      72 is prefect: a few clouds, not too hot, not too cold, a great's the only thing better than rain!

  2. I haven't had a whole lot of Bathing Garden scents but I know I want more of Golden Ticket and there was something else, but I never see them in stock.

    I'm gonna have to keep an eye out for your destash boxes.


    1. If you email Shannon on her Etsy site and ask her if she's going to restock Golden Ticket, she will tell you! :)

      I will type a list of what's in them soon! :D

    2. UGH! Ran right over to get some of that scrub and there is none listed. :( Guess I will have to wait until June. Thanks for your review. Love reading your blog.

    3. It has gotten absolutely crazy trying to buy wax online right now! Between the craziness at The Bathing Garden and CFTKR's new changes, it's like a rat race to see who gets their order in first, refreshing and general insanity! Thanks for reading! :)

  3. Awesome, awesome order! I have yet to order one of her scrubs but I've heard they are fantastic! Pistachio Almond Pudding is a fave of mine, glad to see she's making it again and hopefully it'll be up again soon =)
