Rainbow Candy Canes from Cocoa Pink

It always seem like, no matter how far apart I place my orders with different companies, everything always gets shipped around the same time. My mail lady really must think I'm a hoarder! But this order was mainly stuff I use in my daily hair care routine (that I previously ran out of), so I didn't "need" it, but I really enjoy these products! My favorite conditioner is the Soulmate Conditioning Treatment by Cocoa Pink. Here's my empty jar!

No more conditioner :(

Do you guys reuse your empty jars of products? If so, what do you use them for? I like to keep them to put in things like spare coins, bobby pins, nail polish I use a lot, etc.

I ventured out of my comfort zone with the scent I chose for the products I ordered, which I find is great to do from time to time. You never know what might surprise you! The scent I chose is called Rainbow Candy Canes from Cocoa Pink. Let's take a look at the scent description!

Rainbow Candy Canes - Rows of shimmering candy canes swirled with rainbow stripes and flavored with plump juicy blackberries, succulent raspberries, sugared lemons and limes, satsuma oranges, marshmallow fluff, ribbons of vanilla bean noel & peppermint infused sugar cane.

I ordered one Princess Poo shampoo, two soulmate conditioning treatments, and a perfume in the same scent.

In this case, I'm quite happy I ventured far from my normal tastes in perfume. Rainbow Candy Canes has a lot going on with it scent-wise, but not in an overwhelming sort of way. I was worried at first, though! Upon initial application, I thought it was really strong and thought it DID have too much going on. However, it immediately calmed down into a beautiful fruity scent with distinct notes of the sugary lemons and limes with the orange coming into play. It started reminding me of that Sunkist candy- the circular, fruit flavored gummies coated in sugar. I love those candies, so it wasn't bad to smell like them! The peppermint comes out almost right away, and it grounds the intense fruity scent so it's not ALL fruit. After awhile, the fruity scent almost disappears, and the sweet, fluffy marshmallow comes to take the lead role. I really enjoy Rainbow Candy Canes! I wouldn't wear it as a daily scent, but I'm glad I got it and I will get some good use 
out of it! :)

That's all for now! Thanks for reading, my dears!

  1. This sounds both very intriguing and very not my thing... I don´t like peppermint or citrus in perfume but I love the concept!

    1. That's very understandable! By the way, I was so antsy to order Boneyard by black Baccara that I caved in and ordered a small size... I can't wait to get it in the mail. I wouldn't have even known about the company if it weren't for you, so thank you! <3

    2. You have to share your thoughts on it when you get it! I only vaguely remember it as a great clove scent...

    3. I absolutely will! I got a shipping notice this morning, so hopefully it will be in my paws soon :)

  2. You got everything in the same scent! I always afraid to do that. The scent sounds perfect for hair care products. Fruits, Peppermint and Marshmallow!

    1. I know, I had to be really brave to do this! But I'm glad I did! It is a nice hair care scent! I know you like peppermint for hair care stuff. I'd recommend The Night Before Christmas (I know we've talked about that scent before) for more of a peppermint scent, because the peppermint doesn't come through as much in Rainbow Candy Canes as it does in the Night Before Christmas one <3
