The White Company Peony Hand & Nail Set Review

the white company review

 

Hello all! Here’s an interesting skincare set I scored during the last Nordstrom anniversary sale. I’ve always been curious about this brand and wondered what their products smell like. Finally, during the last Nordy sale, I tried the peony hand wash and hand cream from The White Company. Are you familiar with the brand at all? I might have heard my cousin talking about them, but, I haven’t tried anything from them until this review. I did spot their very interesting book in amazon about interior design and I need to check it out soon.

Anyway, for this review, let’s take a look at The White Company’s hand wash and hand cream. For me, packaging-wise, I’m really impressed by the design and sleekness of their bottles. They’re the kind that adds beauty to your bathroom counter. Also, it seems to me that the aesthetic of the brand’s products, in general, elevates your mood and your entire home.

Peony Hand Wash – I’m super impressed by the scent of this product. I love peonies and even though I feel like I’ve already sniffed almost all kinds of peonies out there, still, the scent of this hand wash is so unique, breathtaking, and just really good. I’m impressed with the pump dispenser because it feels stable and the soap foams really well.

Peony Hand & Body Cream – Not only is this hand cream so creamy, but this also has a very luxurious scent, perhaps a bit different from the hand wash, but overall this gives a unique blend of fresh peonies and something sort of a complex floral blend that is hard to discern, yet so unique and quite unforgettable. The texture of this is really really creamy that you can use this either as a hand cream or even as a body cream. Also, this sets into the skin immediately and doesn’t feel sticky at all.

Overall, even though I’ve only tried these two products from this very interesting brand, I feel like I need to explore their stuff more. I think I’m going to find a lot of their products to be very very interesting, so, stay tuned because I will investigate further, soon. For now, I definitely recommend this hand and nail set and I bet you’ll love it.

Fresh Citron de Vigne Review

fresh beauty citron de vigne bath and body

 

A few months ago, I reviewed the Fresh Beauty Lychee bodycare products, which you can read here. In this post, I will be reviewing another interesting Fresh scent for bath and body as well, and it’s the Citron de Vigne. This scent comes in candle form, perfume, lotion, and hand cream, among other things. While I have not tried the soap, candle, and fragrance versions, I do have a review of the shower gel, body lotion, and the hand cream below.

 

As an overview, the Fresh Citron de Vigne scent is what I call a good sweet citrus scent. It doesn’t have any acidic notes that you’d typically notice in most citrus-blended fragrances. I find it to be mild and definitely pleasing to the senses and has that overall Summer and vine vibe to it. When comparing it to the other citrusy scents from Fresh Beauty, like the well-loved Fresh Brown Sugar (which doesn’t smell like brown sugar at all) or the Fresh Sugar Lemon, well, the Fresh Brown Sugar has a really strong citrus scent which is very spa-like, and the Sugar Lemon isn’t my favorite because it has a really weird blend of lemon and probably too much sugar that it smells more like a popular toilet spray. But anyway, the Fresh Citron de Vigne is a very good light scent that is not heady and is not overpowering.

Body Lotion (10 oz: 26 USD) – This lotion is paraben-free, sulfate-free, and is mostly made of clean ingredients. Also, this has shea butter and Vitamins C & E that really moisturizes the skin while being lightweight and creamy in texture. Like most Fresh body lotions, this cream doesn’t sit on top of the skin, therefore, this gets absorbed easily. On top of that, this is not sticky and you can double this as a foot cream because this really delivers intense moisture on the skin and there is no need for reapplication. Once a day is enough.

 

Bath & Shower Gel (10 oz: 23 USD) – This has the same scent as the lotion and has the same texture as with most Fresh shower gels, which is thick yet very easy to lather. You only need to use a few pumps of the product and you’ll get a nice refreshing shower.

Hand cream (1 oz: 14 USD) – I would have totally fallen in love with this hand cream but I have a few reservations. While I don’t question the super-rich and moisturizing texture of this, as well as the wonderful scent, I don’t like the fact that this hand cream is really small. Not so much in terms of packaging, but more like in terms of content. It seems like the whole tube is only filled with half a product. Other than that, this cream really keeps your hand from drying.

 

Bottom line, the Fresh Citron de Vigne is a really nice mild scent that won’t give you a headache. Also, I recommend the body lotion and the shower gel if you haven’t tried them already, but I’m not quite sure about the hand cream.

Fresh Sugar Lychee Review

If you ask me what’s my favorite bath and body products, you can definitely expect me to mention the Fresh brand of shower gels and lotions. In fact, their products play a starring role in my current bathroom situation. One of the scents I love from Fresh is the Sugar Lychee. It’s probably the scent that solidified my love for Fresh products because it’s quite unique, and nothing like I’ve ever smelled before. I also love some other Fresh scents like the Hesperides Grapefruit which I reviewed here in the blog a few years ago, and I also adore their Citron de Vigne line which I will be reviewing soon.

 

In this review, we’ll talk about the very intriguing Fresh Sugar Lychee. Fresh has made a soap, a body lotion, a shower gel, a fragrance, and a sugarbath out of this lovely scent. Let’s take a look at their lotion, shower gel, and sugar bath below.

 

Fresh Sugar Lychee Body Lotion review

 

Sugar Lychee Body Lotion (10 oz: 26 USD) – This lotion has sweet notes of lychee but it’s not overwhelming. It’s really moisturizing on the skin even with just a few drops. I love the softening effect that this has and it’s definitely lightweight. It also sets on the skin easily so there’s no sticky feel. I love that this lotion moisturizes my skin throughout the day, leaving no dry patches. I didn’t really notice any additional scent from this lotion, other than being a pure light lychee.

Sugar Lychee Bath Shower Gel (10 oz: 23 USD) – This antibacterial shower gel foams very well and you don’t need to use much of it. I do find that the scent of this can be quite cloying at times, yet still bearable nevertheless. For me, it doesn’t smell like lychee that much. It’s more like a mixture of lychee, brown sugar, a bit of citrus, and something else. Out of all the Fresh Sugar Lychee products mentioned here, this is the one I like the least.

Sugar Lychee Sugarbath (6.35 oz: 39 USD) – This the first Fresh Lychee product I’ve ever tried and I loved it immediately. It’s basically sugar cubes filled with lychee scent and Bicarbonate soda that aids in exfoliating dead skin cells as you shower. Each cube is made with natural ingredients and you can either use one directly on the skin or you can throw it in the tub. Be very careful when rubbing the cube against the skin, because it can be scratchy. Although I find that it isn’t really as scratchy as some other sugar baths I’ve tried before. The scent of this is what I considered a true lychee scent and it’s really really good. The heavy glass container of this product also looks pretty and can be repurposed as storage for cotton balls or cotton pads.

Fresh recently updated the packaging of their shower gels and lotions, which now has a pump. I find the pump to be a little difficult to maneuver as it seems to get stuck on the product and you have to exert more effort to pump the product out. I honestly kind of prefer the previous design of the packaging. But overall, I highly recommend these products and I think Fresh did a very good job of creating them.

 

Are you a fan of Fresh body and skincare products? Have you tried any of these before? What do you like about them?
