Hauling Haus of Gloi // Autumn

Finally took the plunge into the addictive world of Haus of Gloi, and selected a variety of samples to get a taste for the company. In this post I'm just going to go over first scent impressions, and only of the limited edition items from my haul. Rather than overload one post, I'll just wait and post full reviews of the permanent scents at a later date.
The infamous Ghost Puffs seemed a sure bet for my love, and so I chose to also buy a large tub of the pumpkin butter in that scent, as well as a mini sugar exfoliant and mini pumpkin butter.
Have you ever had the caramel covered popcorn called Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs? This smells very similar to that, and I like it quite a lot. It is quite a sweet scent with an edge, and I am glad to have picked up both sizes of this as it is often sold out when I look on the site.
Naturally I perused through the rest of the limited edition Halloween/Autumn collection, as I'd heard great things about it through the grapevine. 
I've only tried the rest of my autumn stash a few times, to form an initial opinion on the formula and scents of them. I must say, I am impressed.
 "Cream, glowing pumpkin, rich vanilla bean and the tiniest touch of nutmeg butter."

Pumpkin Eater is a sweet vanillery pumpkin scent, so if that sort of heavy scent isn't for you I would give this one a miss. I'm glad I bought my sample in pumpkin butter form, it is lovely to apply at night and the scent lingers on my skin nicely.
'Old Oak, sweet drying hay fields, crushed apple pulp and vanilla husks.' 
Olde Cider Haus smells nicer when using it than in the tub (as do many of these scents) and I can smell apples and something woody almost, which I attribute to the 'hay' portion of the description. I wish I had've bought this in a pumpkin butter, I think that would be lovely. I will also note that while this Sugar Exfoliant is a great scrub, I prefer the Bubbling Scrub formulation which lathers nicely.
 "Gentle hay pillows, pumpkin, ripe peaches dusted with clove and nutmeg, dried summer herbs, and lastly, a lovely crown of amber"
 
The Bubbling Scrub formula is really nice, and I'd consider getting a full size in a different scent with my next haul. I smell a bit of spice with the pumpkin in this, I'd suggest you head here for a better description of this scent (and you can search most of the Haus scents there as well, Su is amazing!) 
 
The Yule collection is out now, but I'd throw whatever is left from the autumn stash into your cart as well. Just as nice in an Aussie summer as they are in an American autumn!
 
What are your favourite Gloi scents? What should I include in my next order?

  1. I just made my first order with Haus of Gloi yesterday! I picked up some Yule items. I kept meaning to try them, but there are too many indie shops out there! I ordered a regular Snow Wolf Whipped Soap and then minis of all the other types of things - scrubs and lotions. I'm trying to figure out which brand's items I like the most, haha.

    1. @Larie I was so excited when I did a real shopping cart, I usually just fill one up and click off before I purchase. Want some Yule items and even though I have so many to get through already, I think I'm going to put an order in. The minis are good sizes, esp for the pumpkin butters they last quite a while.
