Coconuts remind me of the tropical summer!! I guess it is a scent that for most people is associated with summer as well. The scent makes appearances in sun tan lotions, oils, and anything “tropical” inspired. continue reading

This is one of my favorite body creams of all times! I have been using this since I was about 15 years old. I never slather this all over my skin as it would be over kill, i usually just apply a bit to my arms. I always have to have a jar in my lotions and potions drawer. It leaves the freshes cleanest scent on your skin and it lasts for hours! I alwasy get compliments whenever I wear this cream. There are other products in the line – perfume, gel moisture, deoderant, body wash etc – but I feel that that the Green Tea honey Drops Body cream smells the absolute best!!

What is your favorite perfumed lotion?
One of my new favorite products is Body Shop’s Body, Room and Linen Spray! There are seven scents to chose from (shown below) and they all smell really good. My favorite scent is Mandarin &Tangelo- a orangey citrus blend. I would call this product a high end body spray (splash). I have been using the Dove body sprays lately to add a fresh spritz mid day – but I think that I will be shelfing them for a bit to use my Body Shop Spray. You get 100ml (3.3 US FL OZ) in the bottle – it is a glass bottle which makes it a bag weight, but it the quality of the scent is worth the extra lugging. I am calling it a high end body spray because of the quality of the scent and the fact that it doesnt have any strange smelling after smell- like cheaper drugstore sprays. The I have tested three scents (on different patches of skin) and they all seem to settle nicely and they leave your skin smelling naturally sweet. The scent is not very strong and can be worn with your perfume. It is a good thing to have to freshen up your scent mid day without smelling like you have compounded tons of perfume on. I have been wearing it for a few days now and I would estimate that the scent lasts about 4-6 hours (in the summer hot climate) it will probably last even longer in the winter when you don’t sweat at all. The spray is also made to spritz on your clothing and on your bed sheets – I havent done this but you can- the liquid is clear so there shouldnt be any problems with staining – but I would keep the spray off delicate fabrics such as silks and becareful of whites. This product is one of the nicest body sprays I I have ever had – I wil be returning to the Body shop to purchase a few more scents.
