It’s been a minute since I’ve been in the space to blog! Work has had me super busy, so by the time I get home I am pretty tapped out. My last post, I discussed me celebrating my birthday with my best friend! I decided for my birthday for my 35th year I promise to do more things for myself! Earlier this year I planned for this to be the year of getting back to Carissa, but we quickly get in a routine and forget about taking care of ourselves.
However, I have been keeping up with this goal of mine! I don’t always do something big for myself but I manage to get some “me” time in and it feels great!
Let’s Jump into Spring Fragrance…
In college, I worked at Bath and Body Works Flagship store in Columbus, OH. It was a regular Bath and Body Works store but it carried lots of other specialty brands. C.O. Bigelow was one of the brands we carried. I had heard of C.O. Bigelow but it was primarily for the Peppermint Lipgloss. Once I learned of the full brand I was a fan, I became a huge fan of the Lemon Collection. Seriously, I LOVE lemons in general (I craved them while I was pregnant with Emma), but to have a refreshing lemon scent lotion and perfume was EVERYTHING!
I was sent a couple of lemon items to review, and the timing couldn’t have been better! You see, when Spring comes around I like to switch up my fragrance to fresh fruity fragrances for the warmer months!
Lemon Body Lotion – No. 1162 Lemon Body Lotion Lemon Extract 2% Our ultra-moisturizing and skin-brightening formula, fortified with moisturizing Shea Butter and replenishing Kukui Nut Oil, is the ultimate light-weight lotion for the softest skin.
Lemon Eau de Parfum No. 1999 is inspired by our most-loved, favorite original formulary, Lemon Body Cream. The pure, sparkling Lemon fragrance blends effervescent citrus notes with green lemon leaves and sensual, creamy undertones of warm white musk.
Lemon Body Cream Lemon Oil and Extracts No. 005 4.5% This recipe has been a favorite in our apothecary since 1870. Our time-honored formula is the ultimate in intensive moisture care for very dry skin. We combine nourishing Lemon Extracts (super charged with Vitamin C), ultra-moisturizing Shea Butter and replenishing Kukui Nut Oil (rich in essential fatty acids) to create the ultimate body cream. A little of this rich, non-greasy cream dramatically renews, softens and moisturizes.
Lemon Conditioner For All Hair Types – No. 314 Our light and silky conditioner for all hair types leaves hair shiny and knot-free without weighing it down. We combine weightless conditioning agents including Soy and Wheat Protein, Mallow Extract, and Jojoba Oil to replenish moisture, smooth hair and add lots of healthy-looking shine. Scented with Lemon for fresh-smelling hair.
I love all of the products, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the Body Cream! I love a good body cream, I love how it feels on my skin. Not only have I been enjoying the body cream but the little fingers of Emma has been enjoying it too! She’s always in my “smell goods” so once she smelled the lemon, she sat down next to me and started putting body cream on her body as well! And when she finished, she asked for some of the perfume (because she saw me put some on).
