The Body Shop: Bloggers Event * Scents of The World * Review

This is another The Body Shop friendly blog! In other words, I love love love this brand!

When The Body Shop invited me to the bloggers event (5.9.2012) I did everything to be there! I traveled all over Athens(what a drama queen!) but I was there!!! Oh! And I had a great partner with me: Mr.Little Feet! Yes, I am a crazy mom/beauty blogger and I went with my little boy.

As you can imagine, I wasn’t able to handle camera, baby and all those amazing products I wanted to try, so NO PHOTOS! Bad beauty blogger, bad! If you would like to see images and read more about the event, I suggest you to visit the following blogs:
Natalie’s blog
Marie’s blog (Look! I am in the photo!!! lol)
Sissi’s blog
and if you search a little bit, I am sure you’ll find more posts about it.

During the event, the collection that really captured my attention was Scents of The World, the new natural perfume collection composed of 100% organic alcohol and precious natural extracts, hand-picked and harvested with care, collected from various parts of the world.

Let me introduce you to these five new scents:

Amazonian Wild Lily, an oasis of fresh lilies in the Amazon; with iris, orchid, papaya and Brazilian lilies.

Atlas Mountain Rose, a fresh blend of citrus, spices and rose extracts.

Indian Night Jasmine, with notes of sandalwood, violet leaf and orange blossom.

Japanese Cherry Flower, gentle and romantic, is created of Fuji apple, magnolia and cherry blossom.

Madagascan Vanilla Flower, with amber, frangipani and vanilla.

This collection has also a… playful part! We have the option to create our own unique scent by blending two together.

The Body Shop Scents of the World are available in 50ml Eau de Toilette, 100ml Fragrance Mist, 250ml Body Lotion, 250ml Shower Gel and 15ml Perfume Oil.

My favorite one is Madagascan Vanilla Flower. I have the perfume oil and is MY scent! Warm, sweet, sensual, feminine. I love its oriental scent. The floral accords aren’t strong enough, but that doesn’t bother me at all because I don’t like floral scents. It is very linear and straightforward; what you smell when you apply it, is what it will be till the end. Long lasting; I’ve been asked about my fragrance after 24h of wearing it.
I like to apply just a drop behind my neck before going to sleep. I love sleeping and waking up with this smell. It makes my day!

Is it a dupe?
It reminds me of Christian Dior’s Hypnotic Poison and I;ve read that many bloggers think the same. Is it a dupe? Maybe…I think it’s better that the Hypnotic Poison. And costs less. What do you think?

Have you tried any of these new fragrances? Do you like them? Which one is your favorite?

Let me know, beauties!

Kisses,

Beauty Must Have of The Week!

A great charitable initiative. Buy this lip butter when you’re in store and 75% of its price will be given for a good cause. The cool thing is that you will receive a token and you can vote one of the charity of your choice. The charity with the most votes gets 75%, the second one 30% and the third one 20%. In other words, you buy this fruity, sweet and super moisturizing lip butter for 7€ and, at the same time, you help three local charities.

That’s a great reason to become a Beauty Must Have, don’t you think?
P.S.&Disclaimer: Special Thanks to Dimitra Kaldi, The Body Shop Greece Marketing & Communication Manager, for the great bloggers event and the goodies she offered me. I’ve got the Dragon Fruit Lip Butter for free at the event, but I always write my honest opinion. Nobody pays me to write this post or use the product.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist

Hello beauties!

Today I’d like to review a product that I wasn’t expecting to use it-or better overuse it-, adore it and make it part of my everyday beauty routine. I am talking about Vitamin E Face Mist by The Body Shop.

The Body Shop Greece sent me this product and when I’ve seen it I was sure that I would never use it. I love my Avène Spring Water and I rarely use used other face mists. Then I’ve read a million good reviews and decided to give it a try.

Here’s what the website says about the product:
A quick skin pick-me up and excellent for setting make-up. Spritz it on for instant refreshment, moisture, and protection. With a delicate rosewater scent.

The Vitamin E Face Mist comes in a light pink opaque plastic bottle with a pump spray on the top. The spray part is covered by a transparent plastic cap that makes it safe for carrying it on your bag or luggage without having any problem. Once  you spray it on your face, it leaves the right amount of product. Who would like to get a shower while being outside?

The product is watery and suitable for every skin type. It gives a dewy, hydrated and fresh look to my face.

It has a discrete rosewater fragrance.It is a very refreshing scent but it fades within 2-3 minutes. It is great even for setting your make-up; just spray over your make up to seal it after applying. I also moisten my brushes with it when I want a wet application for eyeshadows. During summer I keep it in my refrigerator for extra coolness when the weather is really hot. It gives such a pleasant feeling during hot days…

I haven’t checked the ingredients list and I can’t tell you anything about this…sorry…You can find them in the website if you want.

The bottle contains 100ml of product and costs €8.50. You might think it’s expensive, but it lasts long and worth its money!

I am convinced and happy of this product! I recommend it to everyone because it really works for all skin types!

Do you use face mists? Have you tried this one? 

Let me know girls!
