When I was a kid (and now that I'm an adult) clowns terrified
the bloody hell out of me!
There is something so seriously scary about clowns! Don't even sit their and deny it because you know exactly what I mean!
Isle of Eden
has kindly taken the scary out of clowns for me and made them deliciously sinful!
Over the course of a year or so Isle of Eden has done various blends of their immensely popular Clowns line of body and bath care that has gotten quite a cult following (I'm a card holding member).
This is just a tiny review of the Clowns series. The Clowns have evolved from a very simple scrub that was released for Halloween last year entitled "Can't Sleep Clowns Will Eat Me" into a full line of different scent blends!
The original, Can't Sleep Clowns Will Eat Me, is still available for purchase in any number of bath and body products, haircare, and perfume! The scent is a house blend created by the owner of Isle of Eden and includes all of the following notes, pink cotton candy, funnel cake, and red apple!
Since it's original release Can't Sleep Clowns Will Eat Me has had any number of notes added and taken away! Some of the blends I've gotten have included funnel cake, pink or blue cotton candy, cherry snowcone, strawberry, buttercream, pineapple, and many many other interesting tidbits!
The blend started out as a scary treat for Halloween but soon evolved into a circus/carnival themed product! It later became something else completely and began to show really unusual notes blended together that worked quite well such as pineapple and funnal cake, pink lemonade and cotton candy, etc...!
Some of my favorite Clowns were released shortly after the original house blend and were entitled Can't Sleep Clowns Will Eat Me 1 through 4! Each blend consisted of something more wicked than the last! The blends were so gorgeous and amazing to smell that it was difficult not to dig into them with a spoon (I doubt they'd taste as good as they smelled!).
Can't Sleep Clowns Will Eat me Number 2 was a mixture of blue cotton candy, funnel cake, and juicy strawberries! Sounds weird right? Strawberries with funnel cake plus cotton candy? Sheesh sugar overload! But the strawberries binds the entire blend and creates a wickedly sinful body treat!
Can't Sleep Clowns Will Eat Me Number 3 consisted of Cherry Snow Cone, Blue Cotton Candy, and Funnel Cake.
Can't Sleep Clowns Will Eat Me Number 4 consisted of Blue Raspberry Cotton Candy, Funnel Cake, and Frozen Pink Lemonade.
Sadly, these have made a trip into the great beyond and are no longer available in their original format! However, new Clowns are available and some contain these very same notes!
Some products I highly recommend should you dive into purchasing some very delicious clown goodies would be the Whipped Bath Cream and of course, Isle of Eden's specialty, body scrubs!
The Whipped Bath Cream has the same consistency as a thick rich lotion but this is for your shower! A small amount and a shower puff will create mounds and mounds of luxurious suds that you can use to shave with, wash with, or even sneak in a hair wash with! I must say that a majority of Bath and Body goodies are almost always an in shower experience. Meaning as soon as you sud up and step from your shower the scent almost never lingers. I've found a majority of the Clown blends stick around for a bit through the day and I catch faint hints of Funnel Cake or strawberries, etc...through out the day! Which means the thrown, linger, and potency are pretty tops in my book!
The scrubs are delightfully wonderful as well! The scrubs are not only great for exfoliation but also wonderful cleansers as well since they foam up!
Sadly, Isle of Eden has one bad point. The wait time. Wait times for an order range from 1-3 months depending upon how busy they are at the moment. From what I understand they are working on decreasing that time but I've yet to see anything being done about it and it annoys me to have to wait that long for product!
One other minor problem is if you're sensitive these may not be good for you! I've heard many reviews stating that they have caused break outs on sensitive skin! I've never had a problem but I do not suffer from sensitive skin. That's something to consider prior to ordering!
Aside from that I highly recommend any of the wonderful Clown blends! You'll see that Clowns aren't as scary as you thought they were!
