Grumpy Haul ~ Collective Haul

Have bought several Grumpy Girl products this year. Have tried every scent in different types of products, but here is a selection of just a few.

Found Grumpy Girl on You Tube, there is several GG haul videos there, and liked the way they were packaged and the excitement of trying the new scents. There’s wax melts, candles, soaps, various thickness of body butters, scrubs, lip balms, body sprays, and solid perfumes. Can buy samples of some of this products, and there is always a few free samples with each order. The scent list is here.

So, unto various products and my faves.

Booty Call Soap

Wholesome oats and sweet cream are infused with rich warm notes of honey and almonds and topped with a sprinkling of brown sugar.

All of the Grumpy soaps are very conditioning, lather up really well. and this soap in my honest opinion is best used in the Booty Call or 3 Bears scent. I always cut my soaps into little pieces because I’d prefer to swop and change soaps and not ruin them by sitting in a puddle of bubbles. The soaps have never let me down. All smell great. You get a huge piece of soap for around $5.50 (differs with some scents)

Booty Call itself reminds me a teeny tiny bit of Snowcake from Lush, that would be the almond scent, and it’s so nicely blended with the honey. This is one of those soaps you want to eat. It’s a bit scrubby, you’ll need to go easy on rubbing the actual bar on your skin.

Acid Trip Scrub

A meditative unisex blend of patchouli, sweet orange, lavendin, pine, lemongrass and elelmi, with notes of incense, amber and musk.

This is a dupe of Lush’s Karma. Spot on, in fact this is how I used to love Karma, found it’s become just a slight bit more sweeter over the years. And this is the Karma I fell in love with years ago. If you don’t know Karma : it’s like walking around on a sunday afternoon around Camden Town in London, incense and summer altogether.

The scrub itself lasts for a long time, you’ll find you don’t need a awful lot for one use, and this will last at least two weeks. Doesn’t leave any oils on your skin but it does feel soft.

Woodstock 69 Stick O Buttah

The ultimate hippie fragrance blend! A rich, beautiful blend, with an earthy hint of patchouli and sweet smell of nag champa

VERY hippie. Love this scent so much, and have sniffed my arms after using this so much, scent lingers fairly strongly, the butter is a bit greasy, you roll on the stick, and it’s up to you if you want to rub it in your skin, I tend to leave it on as I find my skin instantly is smooth. And because I love the scent so much. The butter will stay on your skin all day.

Porn Star In Pink Panties Body Spray

A complex scent of fresh bergamot, juicy citron, mingling with floral notes of neroli, jasmine and rose. Leading into the heart of the fragrance, are notes of sweet pear, plum, apricot, and red lyche, ending with base notes of sensual musk and cedarwood, with swirl of white chocolate and fluffy pink cupcakes.

This lasts friggin ages, used a few times and doesn’t look like I’ve used any at all. I would not recommend spraying under armpits, but over your arms, chest, stomach works well. Scent lingers all day, and find I prefer the Little Squirts body spray which is a much smaller product.

This scent is very strong, a perfume scent, and seems to be one of the more popular scents, very fruity.

Voodoo Berry Lip Crack

No description, but this is very berry, with slight black cherry included. The balms are soft and conditioning. I’ve had a few samples of this included with orders before rather than soap.

Plum Crazie Fluffy Stuff Soap

Rich, vibrant plums, raspberries, cranberry, citrus, apple, strawberry with a touch of vanilla, honey and rum.

This whipped soap is so soft and so easy to apply, a little goes a long way, and quickly lathers up. The scent doesn’t tend to last after it’s been washed off, but you’ll love it during a shower. The scent is so fruity and yummy. Can smell the raspberries and plum.

Let Them Eat Cake Goats Milk, Shea Butter & Honey Lotion

Rich, buttery Italian birthday cake topped with fluffy buttercream frosting.

My favourite of the lotions, it’s not too thick, lasts so long, and the scent always compliments the lotion. It easily soaks into skin, the scent is a yummy cake scent. Another you want to eat it scent.

Find I don’t need to re-apply this at all. By far my favourite product from Grumpy.

Check out the videos on You Tube and drool over the scent descriptions.

Grumpy Girl “Cranky Cups”

Bought a few of these, and just got round to heating up my second Cranky Cup in the scent: Candied Toffee Crunch, it’s a nice warm day and with the windows open the scent is working it’s way through the house. It’s a strong scent, but not overpowering.

Cranky cup’s are like the Tarts you buy from Yankee Candles, they are little melts that when burned release a scent to fill your room. Have a little tealight underneath the the top and that’s what warms the cranky cups.

Smells a bit like a Dime Bar, imagine splitting it in half, and you can smell the toffee, chocolate and caramel, exactly like that.

Have a normal sized tart-warmer so I split my Cranky Cup’s in half to burn. Half will get me at least 10 hours burning time.

Have a few of these little cups and defently will get some more, there’s many scents to choose from.

Grumpy Girl sells each Cup for $1.90 each (around £1.30) and if you buy during the “PMS Sale” (once a month, get it?!!!) you get 20% off your product order. Sign up to Grumpy Girl Newsletters to find out when each sale takes place, or “like” GG on Facebook HERE

Based in Franklin, KY. Grumpy Girl sells candles and bath and body products, most of the body products are the same scent as the wax melts, there’s around 50 different scents, along with seasonal scents, and are avaliable in Body Sprays, Soap, various Body Scrubs sizes, Lotions, Solid Perfumes, and Lip Cracks (balm)

Products tend to take around a week to two weeks to be freshly made, then add on a week for US to UK shipping. Usually get my orders around three weeks after placement, along with a couple of soap samples or lip balm. A toy and candy or chocolate.
