Candy Panda May Restock

Disclaimer - all products were purchased by me

Hi guys! How's your month going so far? This month has been busy with doctor appointments for my daughter and trying to get a diagnosis for her arm and leg. Her new specialist wants to run a bunch of tests and have her see different specialists because they aren't certain her previous diagnosis is correct, but things aren't moving as fast as I would like. Blah. We just want answers and treatment.

Today I have a new Candy Panda order from the opening late last month. This is what I was able to check out with after a few items flew out of my cart.

They recently switched over to a new and smaller cup for the wax melts. These hold approximately 0.8 ounces of wax and come in 5 packs for $5 with shiny gold labels. They're much more sturdy than the larger cups and not one lid cracked in transit or fell off. These are adorable and the perfect size to pop in the warmer.

Day of the Dead
A sweet zest of fruit pastilles and fresh lime slices (inspired by Lush Calacas)

The first of two free samples. An old favorite that smells of limes and oranges smoothed out by a soft woodsy base of sandalwood.

Honey Pear Cider
Juicy pear, sweet honey and homemade cider

I want to say this is a Scentsy dupe. It smells like crunchy yellow pears with a generous dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg. It's really good but I'm going to set it aside for now because it reminds me of autumn. 

Just Peachy
Creamy peaches, raspberry, coconut and vanilla

A fresh peach with green accents and a fuzziness about it. Occasionally there is a whiff of vanilla, but it's very muted. 

Lily Lavender
Lavender soda

Fizzy lemon lime soda with the faintest hint of herbal lavender. It's pretty much all citrus and barely any lavender. 

Rice Flower & Shea
Delicate petals + creamy shea butter (inspired by B&BW)

I'm going to be very nitpicky with this one. It's an old favorite that was discontinued years ago and I haven't shopped at B&BW ever since so when I see a dupe, I get ridiculously hopeful. I've yet to find a true dupe and this one also falls short. It is supposed to be a milky, creamy scent with delicate floral accents, but this one has a heavy sandalwood base with an underlying bitterness. The search continues. 

Tea & Cakes
Warm rich tea steeping beside a fresh slice of cake

The second free sample. I'll be totally honest, I've smelled this scent many times and it's got to be one of my least favorites ever. It's black tea and thick yellow cake, but it always makes me think of stale urine. I just can't do this one after many attempts.

So that's all I have for now. I'm kinda underwhelmed by this order overall, but the Just Peachy scrub is nice and I'd consider reordering. Did you get anything from this last restock?
