It’s been a while but I’m back! Still no PC, this time due to our Wifi box being dead but, hey what can you do???
I thought I’d do a perfume review as I find it hard to find perfumes that are cruelty free. Especially ones that don’t smell cheap and nasty.
So I was really happy when I discovered Liz Earle and even happier when I discovered they’d opened a stand in the Manchester branch of Boots! The closest one before was John Lewis in the Trafford Centre and I’m no fan of the Trafford Centre at all.
Liz Earle is an Isle of Wight company who make all their products in the UK. If you check out the website you can see loads of information regarding their products. When I can get on a PC I’ll do an overview of the company as I love the fact they are UK based so bonus points on carbon etc. and that they are ethical.
The company does a monthly special for the face products and always includes free full size samples, something that I love the idea of as you can get a real feel for the product.
Liz Earle is currently available on QVC, Boots (check website as not all stores have a stand), John Lewis, online and there are a few stores dotted around the UK. The Liz Earle stores do spa treatments as well mmmmmmm cruelty free facial, ❤ it!
The perfume I’m trying is the new one called Botanical Essence No 100 which is £47 for a 50ml spray bottle. It has a beautiful summery smell which is strong but not too overpowering for me. The ylang ylang is what sells it to me as I love that but the combination of is just beautiful! The only downer is that my skin doesn’t seem to like one if the ingredients and gives it a weird secondary smell. I’m going to try it again and see what happens! That’s the problem with perfume, your skin can change the smell and so I would always recommend getting samples first (if you can!).
As the inlay on the sample card says it is like “walking into a florist” and being hit by all the smells inside! The combination of flowers and plants give this a lovely spring/summer feel and remind me of summer holidays.
This may well be too strong for some as it does linger like Angel does. So if you like the lighter fragrance this may not be for you.
I absolutely love this fragrance and, if further tries work and I don’t get the strange side smell, will definitely be adding it to my collection ☺
I’ll be doing another review of their products in the next couple of days once I’ve used them for a week. Xx
