Sephora Birthday Body Wash Gift Set

I heart Sephora but......

They put this crap on sale for $4 or less and proceed to prepackage it in a ten pack for $36 USD!



Hello? Nobody wanted these to begin with when they were $16 each.....and nobody wanted them again when you marked them down to $4 each!

So why....in the world...would we want them in a 10 pack for $36 pray tell?

Oh lord, will they every learn?

I love you Sephora but please stop trying to break into the Bath and Body industry!



the Muse predicts Sephora's Bath and Body downfall last year!

Meh, so long as they kept the Vanilla Cupcake line, I could not care less (everything else in Sephora's B&B line smells rubbish).

I hate to admit it but I really do love their Guava Passion shower gel and body butter. I LOVE the scent.

Haha, this is the funniest Muse post ever! I can't believe anybody would buy a 10-pack body wash either. Unless somebody showers about 10 times a day, how long will it take to finish the 10-pack anyways? I got that free cupcake wash for my birthday and as nice as it smells, the product is borderline mediocre.

maybe that's why they're sending it to its beauty insiders for free on their birthdays??? doing whatever they can to get rid of them, lol!

Ooh the Muse rants! I do like the way that vanilla birthday one smells, but I got it for free!

Haha, it's kinda funny you know.. Here in Sweden where Sephora is nowhere to be found, everybody just looooves their bath and body stuff! It's like "oooh, I've come across an aaaawesome body butter from Sephora, and a totally loveable shower gel".. I mean come on, just because it's hard to get doesn't mean that it's good :)

Gosh, are they that bad? I've read good reviews for some of them on MUA and I have been tempted by the chocolaty one...but never actually bought it.

oh no serious Maria? LOL!

They aren't really intensely bad but honestly they don't have alot going for them either lol!

But I can totally relate to the hype lol I've been known to totally hype an item up that's unattainable in the US lol!

LOL ahh the mentality of the makeup whore lol!

hiya grayburn...not really it's more the principal of how they keep releasing them and putting them on sale and rereleasing them and back on clearance...it's rather irritating to me!

the chocolate isn't that great you aren't missing anything!

I think you might like it. My husband actually picked it out. He'd sniffed all of them and didn't like any until he smelled that and said, here, you need this. I sniffed it and loved it. The notes are guava, mango, lily of the valley, monoi de Tahiti, vanilla and musk.

I don't like Sephora's B&B either :( Everything smells sooo artificial.
