Finals season is here and I am stressing out! To try to destress a bit, I like lighting candles while I study. The one I am currently lighting is the Gardenia Lily scented soy candle from Target. It's a very cozy floral and sweet scent, perfect for spring time.
Speaking of floral scents, I have recently received the Crabtree & Evelyn Rosewater trio. This trio comes with their body lotion, bath & shower gel and hand therapy cream.
I absolutely adore this trio. The packaging is beautiful and matches my room perfectly! I also find the smell to be simply feminine and elegant. I have been using the hand cream for the past two weeks and it has made my hands so much softer. It is enriched with vitamins C and E and claims to revitalise time-worn skin. I might not have used it long enough yet to see this revitalizing effect (I am quite young so maybe I won't see this effect at all) but my hands love this stuff. It's a very light gel like hand cream and absorbs quickly. It does not leave a greasy finish and the smell of rose is very subtle and calming. The scent however, does linger throughout the day so I would stray away from this if you don't like or are sensitive to fragrances. I find this product to be a cheaper alternative to the L'Occitane hand creams. The packaging is similar and both deliver well in terms of moisturizing and smoothness. For me, this has become my perfect everyday hand cream.
The bath & shower gel has the same beautiful scent. Light, subtle rose and not offensive at all. It leathers up okay and cleans pretty well. I did need to use a bit of product for a good lather though. I use the body lotion right after I shower and the lotion will slightly intensify the lingering rose smell from the bath gel. Even after an application of the body lotion, I still don't find the smell to be overpowering. Instead, I find it to be soothing and relaxing. Perfect for night time, and definitely helps me fall asleep. It gives off the same calming essence lavender would give to help with calming. This body lotion is also very moisturizing, absorbs quickly and is not greasy or oily. As for preference, I do prefer to use this combo at night time only. Just because the scent is so soothing it could put me to sleep during the day haha.
