whatever, whenever, wherever

I think I have quite possibly found the best smelling body products ever! 
Last week I was having a browse around & other stories on Regent street when I came across a scent I couldn't forget. I love the beauty section in there, especially their bath and body range and I own the Shinjuku Bloom body lotion which smells lovely. 

Anyway, as I was browsing I sampled the Méditerranéen body soufflé which smelt amazing! I then thought I'd test out the body scrub from the same scent range (they have a sink there) on my hands. After rinsing them, I applied the body soufflé and on the way home I couldn't stop smelling my hands! It just made me feel like I was on a beach somewhere sipping on fruit mocktails, I can't find another way to describe it really. I was with my boyfriend and I made him try too, he also agreed that it smelt amazing!

"Inspired from the blooming Mediterranean coast, this fragrance has a scent of sweet rhubarb that melts into a jasminey-mimosa and rounds off with a woody base." - www.stories.com

A few days later I went back into there after lunch with a friend to persuade her to try it too. We both gave in and ended up buying a scrub and body lotion for each other. I prefer the lotion because it is really light although not as moisturising as the soufflé. I used both of these all over my body yesterday and I was still amazed at how nice it smelt. If you're ever by Regent Street then definitely pop in and give the scrub and lotion a try, it's important to scrub then moisturise as the layering really makes a difference. I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't love the smell and they leave your skin feeling so soft too. I don't moisturise my body regularly because I'm always too lazy to but I feel like I want to slather this on everyday haha.

Sorry for the rambles but this stuff seriously smells so good! If you don't live in London then they are also available to buy online here (you'll just have to trust my judgement). Think light floral, tropical fruits and a summer's beachy breeze. 

What are your favourite body products?

  1. My favorite body product is actually coconut oil! Ever since I took an environmental science class, I've been pretty much converted to a natural hippy! lol! Plus i'm so lazy, I like how easy the oil glides on, and the light coconut scent smells so good!


    The packaging for those products look pretty cool (which is a huge pro) though I do hate the overlapping image&text on the jar.


    Anyway, I'm a new reader from linexshapexcolor. I jumped over when I seen your comment because I thought "anyone who likes this blog, has to be great!" haha see you around!

  2. I've never tried coconut oil but I hear great things about it. I think I'd just hate the feeling on my skin though? Haha I love that blog, I'm forever wanderlusting.

  3. Just wanted to say I really love you blog & how it's not just suited to one niche but has content from many genres. The photos are really clear & beautiful & I like how you've added words to some of them. Maybe it's because you're a design student but the whole aesthetic of your blog is spot on!

  5. Awrr thank you! I want this to be a place where I just share my experiences and things that I like so I didn't want to limit it to one thing. I'm still trying to make some changes but I find that it's a little difficult to design it how I like here on blogger. Thanks for stopping by!

  8. I've never heard of this brand before, but the packaging is lovely. If only technology was more advanced, you could have posted some samples online for us to smell!


    I love the style of your blog, it's very refreshing and easy to read.

  10. I wish I could smell it myself. The package design is beautiful. My go-to product is plain jojoba oil. It's great for everything. It doesn't smell like anything, but I try not to use scented products too often since my skin is sensitive.

  13. Yeah it is one of those things you have to apply to really get the smell. I've never used jojoba oil before but it sounds great!
