Last weekend saw the sun finally make a reappearance after what had been a rather miserable grey week. And in what was perfect timing, I was sent this product to review. This new product from French fragrance house 'Roger & Gallet' combines a beautiful summery fragrance with active ingredients that hydrate and soften the skin.
Fragance wise, this body mist has top notes of mandarin, bergamot and lemon, which is a really invigorating combination. The heart notes of the fragrance are blood orange; violet leaves, and orange blossom. The mist has base notes of cedar and patchouli, which give it some warmth and depth.
The 'treatment' ingredients include aloe vera (hydrating); kiwi extract (quenching); ginseng (toning), and fruit acids (smoothing).
As soon as I sprayed this fragrance from the gorgeous orange glass bottle, I felt really invigorated and refreshed. This body mist is a Mediterranean Summer captured in a bottle!
In the past I have found that some body mists can be too heavy, which means that you have to wait a long time to put your clothes on. However, this was absorbed into the skin really quickly,which is great if you are in a rush. The dual nature of this product also means that you don't have to double up on products, as this can be used as both a fragance and skin hydrator.This makes it perfect for taking on holiday, or just keeping in your bag for when you want a 'pick me up'. I am going to carry it with me for when I want a refreshing fragrance boost throughout the day.
This fragrance is available from Escentual , for £28.50 (100ml)
