No Longer A Jo Malone Virgin

For those beauty insiders unaware of Jo Malone, it is a cologne empire based in London that specializes in ranges of classic scents. I purchased my first Jo in a Nordstrom on the outskirts of Houston, Texas. The sales associate was knowledgable on all accounts – he knew the notes of each scent, the categories of scents, and even unusual cologne pairings to create a new, foreign scent.

I went with the Wild Bluebell Cologne, a scent in the Light Floral category. The notes include bluebell, persimmon, and white musk. I was attracted to this scent immediately from the youthful yet sophisticated aroma. It has been my fragrance of choice, since the purchase earlier this spring.

The wonderful sales associate was sweet enough to stuff my exquisite bag with five other colognes: Peony & Blush Suede, Grapefruit, Orange Blossom, Blackberry & Bay, and English Pear & Freesia. Interestingly, if you mix two Jo Malone, you will get a third scent! These scents have complex tones and are very unique. I like the Grapefruit with the Wild Bluebell for summer – a partnership of citrus and florals.

Do you have a favorite Jo Malone Cologne?

Prince Charming Shower Gel

Here is another Valentine’s LUSH product review… the one and only, Prince Charming shower gel! This product is a part of the 2014 Valentines LUSH Collection. Like most LUSH shower gels, this one comes in three different sizes. Mine is the smallest size… it looks like on the LUSH USA website that they only have the large, 16.9 oz. left. Thank you Compounder Madu for this awesome product!

Here are some of my product images:



AROMA: this product is a very unique smell for LUSH. It is a mixture of grapefruit and pomegranate with a sweet side. According to LUSH, it is a  “fresh pomegranate and marshmallow wash.” You can definitely tell there is a sweet side to this product!

INGREDIENTS: like all LUSH products, this shower gel is infused with many many many fresh ingredients. A few to name are grapefruit oil, sandalwood oil, almond oil and fresh pomegranate juice! For more information about any LUSH ingredient, you can look them up on the LUSHopedia: Ingredient Finder.

LMITED EDITION: like I said in the above paragraph… this is a LIMITED EDITION LUSH product. They are available online and in stores until Valentine’s Day! This is a part of the Neon Love collection and inspired by the 12 Months of Neon Love Public Art Project.

LATHER: I love how bubbly this shower gel gets. Most LUSH shower gels are great for lather. Specifically, this one is extra bubbly. I also am a fan of the deep cranberry pink color! Of course everything from the Valentine’s collection has to be PINK!

This is a great shower gel. If you are a fan of any of the LUSH shower gel products… I would purchase this one before it goes away! You never know when LUSH limited edition products will come back. What LUSH products are you using this month?!
