Window 23 – 2017

Aah. The day before Christmas, since we in Sweden celebrate on the 24th.

Today I got… 

White musk lotion, and ritual of Dao nnight balm for hands.

The white musk is a scent I’ve previously used as an every day scent. I really like it, it’s a pleasant scent that’s not overpowering, and this lotion feels great in the skin.

The nigh balm I’m looking forward to trying. It’s dry hands season so this could be a big help.

White Musk Smoky Rose

The Body Shop had membership days last week with double points on your purchase and I decided to pick up something from one of the less fruity series.
I wanted something where I could get body wash, moisturiser and perfume in the same scent, so I have something I can use right before going out without having scents clashing
I decided on the White Musk Smoky Rose products.

I got the Shower Gel, Body Lotion and Eau de Parfume on the membership days and since those points gave me 2 bonus certificates I went back today and got the Body Mist.

Shower Gel and Body lotion.

The Shower Gel lathers pretty good, cleans well and doesn’t feel drying, it doesn’t foam as much in bathwater as the other shower gels, but that doesn’t really matter just could have been a nice bonus.

The Body Lotion feels nice and is quickly absorbed and that’s perfect if I want to get dressed quickly after.
It doesn’t leave the skin sticky which is really nice. I haven’t used it enough to know the moisturising ability, but I’ll keep using it post a larger review.

The Eau De Parfume I have only tried once so I can’t really say anything about it yet. I got the Eau De Parfume instead of the Eau De Toilette because the scent usually lasts longer and I got this for evening use.

Then I went back and got the Body Mist because I might want to use this during the day too, and then I’d like a softer scent.

Depending on how often I use this and the hold of the mist and perfume I might get the Eau De Toilette in a while. I have two small samples of that one to try first though.

As for the actual scent of these products, it’s lovely. I’ve never been good at describing perfume notes or scents over all.
The musk is not too overwhelming, the rose plays a pretty big part though.
If I would put words on it I’d say it’s a spiced flower scent. It’s nice, youthful but still elegant. I also think the design off the packaging is gorgeous with its dark purple colour and pure and clean look.

These product are still new for me, so I’ll post another review when I’ve tried them for a while.

Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream

Like all the other hand creams from The Body Shop this feels great om the skin.  It smells kind if herb-y, but that’s to be expected. I prefer the scent if this one over the hemp one.
This is also supposed to clear of bad smell, I don’t know about that yet but if I get a chance to try that, I will.

Window Number 24 – 2012

and the 24:th and last window contained.

Shea Body Butter – 200 ml

Lucka 24 Öppen

Not much of a surprise that it was a body butter, but I really like that it was the shea one
I’ve been planning on buying a more neutral body butter, but I’ve tried to choose between Shea, Olive, vitamin E and Aloe.
The only problem I have with the shea scent is that it reminds me of Sun Screen, which makes me long for sund when I smell it.
As for the texture and feeling on the skin it’s like their other butters, I like it but if you need something that absorbes fast, don’t buy a butter.

As for the pictures in this post, my step-dad wanted the camera for the holidays, so I’m using my compact camera.

And with this I’ll wish my readers a Merry Christmas, I’m going to go fix the christmas ham for lunch.
What’s your favorite christmas traditions, food, decorations and movie?

Window Number 22 – 2012

In the 22:nd window I got

Lucka 22 Stängd

Almond Hand and Nail Butter – 100 ml

Lucka 22 Öppen

Also a product that I already own, and probably my most frequently used hand cream.
I love it. Its smooth on the skin and smells faint and not overpowering. It lingers a while on the skin so it shouldn’t be used if you’re in a hurry.
This is always a part of my manicure routine, both on the nails and the hands.

Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion – 250 ml

Lucka 18 Öppen

I already have a bottle of this foot lotion, and I use it at least once a week.
I try to moisturize my feet everyday before I go to bed. Bu usually I forget. I should put a foot cream visible on the nightstand.
I have four different foot creams, this one, the Peppermint Intense Foot Rescue and the Hemp Foot Protector, all from The Body Shop and then I have a Mineral Foot Cream from Shemen Amour.
I think the one I like the scent best on is the one from Shemen Amour, it smells sweet and almost fruity. while the one I like the least is the Hemp one, so I only use then one when I’m really dry.
Of the peppermint ones I use The Intense Foot Rescue more often than the Cooling  Foot Lotion, simply because I think it smells better. But the cooling foot lotion is the one I massage in after a pedicure.
