Jo Loves Fresh Sweet Peas Hand & Body Lotion

jo loves fresh sweet pea handand body lotion review

I’ve been wanting to share this little beauty with you all ever since it arrived in June from my lovely Auntie for my birthday. I very rarely get to visit Jo Loves these days and I’m not a fan of ordering it online, part of the fun is the store experience for me. If you’ve never visited, the scent bar is great fun! Gifts, however, have to be an exception!

I don’t know about you but “Fresh Sweet Peas” and “No 42  The Flower Shop” are my two favourite Jo Loves fragrances. I have been known to dabble with “Pomelo” on occasion but for some reason it makes me sneeze ?

I really love the attention to detail here. From the crisp white packaging with voluminous bows to the scent they spray inside. I almost want to keep it in the box and on display at all times, very impractical I know but just look at how stunning it is.

Anyway, that’s enough about the packaging, I should probably discuss the actual lotion right? I mean that is the whole point of this post ?

I always tend to stick with florals and this one gives off a fresh, floral aroma. It is a body lotion but I find it a little strong to use all over and instead I keep it as a treat for my hands as part of my morning routine.

I find that the scent tends to last for a few hours, depending on how often I wash my hands in that time of course! I have often had people asking what perfume I’m wearing when in fact it’s this cream so it’s certainly strong stuff!

As creams go it’s very light, dries quickly and doesn’t leave any residue, my skin afterwards feels soft and silky.

This is the first cream I’ve tried from Jo Loves and I’m now tempted to try the cleanser to see what that’s like, I can imagine it being a real treat!

Do you have a favourite Jo Loves fragrance? Have you tried Fresh Sweet Peas? I’d love to hear what you think!

    This sounds really nice, I am really impressed by the packaging, it looks beautiful. I also like the thought that people thought it was perfume they were smelling, I like strongly scented lotions and potions 🙂

    The attention to detail on this is amazing! I love simple, crisp clean packaging and this is right up my street. I’ve never tried this before but I would love to now after reading your post as I like floral aromas too.

      they do a shower product as well, I’m going to try that next as I bet the smell will last for ages

    The graphics are great and the smell… that’d be the reason I’m buying

    I´d love to smell it, the packaging is so nice!

    How beautiful is this packaging? I am so impressed with your photography so big well done for that! I’m sure I would love the sweet peas scent as these are some of my favourite summer flowers (alongside roses!) The fact that it makes your skin so soft and silky too makes it even more of a winner! I need to check out this brand for sure!

      thank you!

    I amazed that as yet, I have yet to try any of the Jo Loves products. I was a huge fan of Jo Malone products, and always tend to have a candle on the go. I think its because I would need to pop into London to shop with Jo Loves, where I have a Jo Malone shop not far from me. I adore the Jo Loves packaging though, and really want to try the products reading this!

    The packaging looks absolutely beautiful! I love good packaging! I don’t think I’ve heard of this brand but I think I’ll check them out now!

    This sounds like such an amazing scent!

  18. August 17, 2017 / 4:51 pm

    Oh my ? The packaging is amazing, I’ve never shopped at Jo loves before, I’ve no idea where to even find a store! But this is something that might have to change x
