Bubble and Geek Review: Geeky scented stuff makes me very happy.



My name is Geek Girl Diva and I have a confession to make.

I am addicted to geeky items of the scented nature. Soap, perfumes, candles, lip balm, you name it. If it smells good and has a geeky theme, I pretty much want to get a hold of it because it makes me happy.

Which is why I was so thrilled when I got this sample pack from Bubble and Geek.

Considering my picture skills are lacking (I mean, did you see the the top image), I'm going to link the stuff I was sent from their website because they have waaaaaaay better photos.

What was in the package:

Sunnydale Library Scented Soy Candle $12



Donna Lip Tint (plum color/Sangria flavor) $5







River's Kiss Roll On Fragrance $7



My review:

First off, let me say, thanks so much to B & G for sending so much. I was very happily suprised upon opening my package.

The Sunnydale Library Scented Soy Candle was, hands down, my favorite. Part of that is just the fact that I'm a candleholic and I tend to have one going whenever possible. The candle is a nice mix of leather (leather bound books) , wood (rosewood for "Mr. Pointy"), and tea (of course). There's also supposed to be a house plant in there somewhere, but I was too busy enjoying the leather and wood so I didn't catch it.

I liked both the Butterbeer and Donna Lip Tints but both presented a small problem -- I kept licking and nibbling my lips. I was that kid that was always tempted to eat grape Bonne Bell in school as a kid, so flavored lip balms and I are at odds. That said, I liked the Donna because I don't wear make up often, but I always wear lip balm, and it was a nice way to get a little color and still feel moisturized. Plus, love the color.

River's Kiss and I, sadly, did not click. Not because the scent isn't pretty. In the bottle it's lovely, but once it hit my skin, it went alllll berries and lost any of the sexiness of musk or incense. That's no fault of the scent. Body chemistry is a funny thing. But if you like floral or foodie scents, I'd say you'd like it.

You can see all of what Bubble and Geek has to offer on their etsy page. As for me, I'm thinking I may need to buy their 221B Scented Soy Candle Jar. Cause it sounds delicious.
