I Love...Strawberries & Cream Hand Lotion Review

Monday, March 30, 2015

I love ...is a popular UK brand, that sells delicious looking bath, body and beauty treats. I love trying international beauty brands and discovered their cute products while scouring instagram. I instantly sent an email to my blog buddy, friend and beauty partner in crime Kizzy of The Dainty Dollshouse (Scotland) asking her about them. She said, Kim they have a wide selection of scents and they're cheap! Well, she sent me their Strawberry & Cream Hand Lotion to try and it is awesome. It truly smells like strawberries & cream. I couldn't believe this was a drugstore brand! I couldn't get over the price! I couldn't get over the cute packaging! Here in the States, we would pay SO MUCH MORE for something like this :( The founder of I love has a really cute story and philosophy about his products: "My passion is for amazing fragrances and the emotional connection created when people are surrounded by fragrances that evoke happy memories and positive emotions in a person’s psyche. My inspiration was a combination of nostalgia, sentiment and pleasure. Drawing my inspiration from my memories of all the things I loved and adored the smell or taste of whilst growing up in the English Countryside. My ambition was to create a catalogue of amazing fragrances all motivated by happy times with family." Isn't that awesome! Well it's a great product and now I want to try ALL the scents! HaHaHa Kizzy, will you send me a scent every year? LOL Have you tried I Love? What scent is your favorite? From what I can tell, they ship to the United Kingdom, Cyprus and Portugal. They can also be found on eBay :S

I've heard of this brand, however have never tried it before myself. I really love the name of this and that probably says a lot about my favourite foods (cake, cake, cake..) - strawberry and cream sounds delicious and I can imagine this product smells equally as delicious! :)

I've never heard of this before, but anything strawberries and cream is the perfect scent for me (in a hand cream).

I love it when a company has such a heartfelt vision and inspiration for their products. It is great to hear the smell is divine!

I always think you can really tell when the person behind a product is truly passionate about what they do because it comes through in their product, making it that much more wonderful. I'll have to pick up some I Love... lotions next time I'm in London!

The packaging is so cute I can also smell the strawberry inside Kim! Glad you got to try this and it turned out to be a great product.

By the way I saw the Milani lipsticks the other day and thought the colors were pretty. I remember you posted about them so I went back to read your posts on the lipsticks and blushes. I would love to try them. Your reviews are always great. Thank you, Kim. Miss you!

Nerline Germain said...

I am so jealous of you guys friendship. Lol! Great products doll!

Margarita Bloom said...

I've seen this around on Tumblr and sooooo wanted to try this brand out!! I really love their packaging and that philosophy is sooo awesome. We'd be great friends I think. That's the exact thought I had with my brand...a domino effect of happiness wherever our products go spreading cheer and good thoughts. Loves it.
