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!
