The Body Shop- Vanilla Eau De Toilette

Today i’m talking vanilla- my favourite scent! Ever since I have been old enough to wear fragrance or moisturizers/body butters with scent, I ALWAYS go for vanilla (okay, or coconut too).  One of the very first stores I would shop for these products at was The Body Shop, and to this day I still use a lot of their products and they are staples in my collection/routine.  One of my all time favourites is the Vanilla Eau De Toilette spray.

I used to always use the vanilla oil, but unfortunately it was discontinued.  However, this eau de toilette spray is quite good as well.  The vanilla scent is almost identical to the oil they used to make, however, the only downfall is that the eau de toilette doesn’t last as long as the oil did.  Tip: To get this to last a little longer, I apply it right away after I take a shower on my pulse points.

What I love most about this product is how light and fresh it is.  It’s not heavy and it isn’t overly powerful.  I personally don’t like fragrances that are really strong and overbearing on the senses, I prefer more “natural” scents.  It is very sweet and is hands down one of my favourite vanilla scents.  The Vanilla Eau De Toilette retails for C$16.00 in stores, and they also sell a Vanilla Body Spray Mist which you can see here.  I have used other brands vanilla products, but nothing has measured up to my all-time favourite from The Body Shop.  I am also keeping my fingers crossed that they bring back the oil version!

Have you tried any Vanilla products from The Body Shop?

Dior- Addict Lip Maximizer Review

Looking for a lip plumper that provides results without burning or stinging?  A product that will instead leave your lips feeling soft and hydrated? Look no further.  Dior Addict Lip Maximizer is my go-to lip plumper!  Here’s why:

The packaging of this product is gorgeous.  I love that it is square-shaped.  When you set it down it does not roll around, or off the surface.  You can set it on its side, or stand it up vertically and it stays put.  There is a silver knob located on the top applicator end, which gives you a little more control when holding the wand to apply the product.  I have tried a few other lip plumping products by different brands, and nothing compares to the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer.  After applying the product you can see results within just a few minutes.  The formula glides on effortlessly, and the wand applicator is small therefore, you can really place the product exactly where you want it.

Pictured below is the one I purchased in shade “Pink 001”:
