This item was included in a GLOSSYBOX that was sent to me for consideration.

Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé Blanc Tea Bag for Bath

      Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé Blanc Tea Bag for Bath was among the goodies in my GLOSSYBOX for April 2013. It’s been a while since I’ve used any sort of bath supplement in the form of a tea bag.

Silly me thought that it would actually be a large tea bag for of white tea and herbs. Well,… white tea is antioxidant, ya know? You see where my thought process was headed with this?

      Upon opening the bag I was instantly greeted with a luxurious fragrance. It was strong but not overwhelming nor offensive. I recognized the Bvlgari white tea fragrance. It has a floral, herbal and musky blend.To give you a better idea of how this smells, here is the note breakdown:

     Top Notes: Artemesia
Heart Notes: White Tea
Base Notes: Musk

    The “tea bag” is filled with a scented bath powder that dissolves best under very hot water. I placed bag in my bathtub as I ran only hot water. The contents of the bag dissolved slowly and filled my entire bathroom with this wonderful scent. My two adorable shar pei dogs even came to investigate the scent. This is highly unusual since they normally find a place to hid when they hear bathwater running.

     After I added enough warm water to bring down the temperature of my bath, I stepped into the tub and soaked for a while. Once I completed my usual bath skin and bodycare routine and exited the tub, I could still smell the scent of Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé Blanc on my skin. It has been several hours since my bath and there is still a hint of the scent on my skin.

     For a bath additive, the price of this luxury tea bag for bath is a bit high at $9.50. However, this scented my bathwater, bathroom and my skin as well. As previously mentioned, although the scent is strong it is not offensive or overwhelming. The contents of the tea bag also softened the water which in turn left my skin soft as well. Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé Blanc Tea Bag for Bath is affordable luxury.

     Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé Blanc Tea Bag for Bath retails for $9.50. It is available at GLOSSYBOX.com.

     Another box full of goodies from GLOSSYBOX  this month. Let’s jump right in, shall we?

     Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Boho Waves Tousled Texture Mist is among my box full of goodies this month. Although I’m sporting a super short ‘do these days, I can still benefit from a texturizing mist that will keep my hair from looking so flat and boring.

     Believie it or not, but I used to be platinum blond off and on for about a decade. One of my favorite hair care lines was “Dumb Blond” by TIGI. Although, I’m very familiar with their haircare, I’ve never tried their makeup. GLOSSYBOX sent me a baked blush in the shade “Brilliance”. Looking forward to trying this out.

     Wash With Joe Coffee Mint Invigorating Bodywash? Hmmm. Sounds yummy… smells delicious. It reminds me more of chocolate mint. Looking forward to trying this out. Love being introduced to brands I’ve not heard of before. icon_smile-7199215

     One can never have too many lip balms. The Honest Co. organic lip balm in “Purely Simple” has no fragrance and is packed with healthy organic oils. I just know my lips are gonna love this!

     Oh, thank you GLOSSYBOX  for pampering me with Bvlgari! A white tea bag for my bath? Yes, please! When the dogs, kitty and boyfriend are snoozing, I’m going to steal away to the bathtub for some precious ME time.

     In a recent GLOSSYBOX, a sample of the luxury day cream from Le Metier De Beaute was included. I was happy to see it again. The full size prize for this decadent skincare is $225. On the back of this postcard along with the sample is a special promo code that allows GLOSSYBOX members to get this cream at a discounted  price. $150 for a day cream is still a little rich for my blood; however, it’s still a nice gesture on their behalf.

     All in all this is somewhat “small” box compared to previous boxes I have received from them. But as always the overall value of this month’s box ( approximately $54!) is greater than the cost of the monthly subscription fee of $21.

     Is this GLOSSYBOX worth subscribing to? Absolutely!
