Clinique Acne Solutions/Bliss New Body Butter

Right now at, when you purchase the Acne Solutions Clear Skin System Set (which includes cleanser, toner and moisturizer for acne prone skin), you will receive a free travel size of Acne Solutions Emergency Gel-Lotion.

Well, I did a little hunting around online, and found out what the new Bliss Body Butter scent is. Its called Blood Orange and White Pepper, and they’re saying this “energizing citrus fragrance blends bright blood orange, spicy white pepper top notes, and nuances of coriander and white musk.” Sounds yummy to me! Sephora will be selling the body butter, along with shower gel and body scrub, in the new scent soon. You can read a little bit about it at sephora, and sign up to be notified when its in stock. I did order my free sample (you can too, see the Coupon Page at right), and I’ll let you know, when I’ve received and used it, how it compares to my favorite bliss lemon and sage body butter. UPDATE: they’ve taken this off of sephora for the time being.
