Hey Everybody! This Summer, I wrote a couple of reviews on the Patisserie De Bain Collection by Rose & Co Apothecary (UK) (here and here). I have a couple more lip balms and hand creams from that collection, so I thought I would share my thoughts about them with you today.
Patisserie De Bain - Strawberry Crush Lip Balm - Sweet
This summer I reviewed their Strawberry Cupcake lip balm and LOVED IT. This lip balm is called Strawberry Crush. From their website, BOTH seem to have the same ingredients! However, I found Strawberry Cupcake to have a little more "strawberry punch" to it than Strawberry Crush. So if you're indecisive about the two, go with Strawberry Cupcake. Both were very moisturizing to the lips. Patisserie De Bain's lip balms last for several hours. Remember to use a lip applicator (found at your local drugstore) to apply (since this is in tin packaging). This will help avoid cross-contamination. Also the vintage tin design is very girly and cute. This lip balm is strawberry scented, but has no taste.
Patisserie De Bain - Cherry Kiss Lip Balm - Supersweet
I've always favored cherry scented products over strawberry ones. Cherry scents seem to pack a more powerful fruity punch. Cherry Kiss, beats out both Strawberry Cupcake and Strawberry Crush. It's scent is that of true cherries (may I add freshly picked) and the lip balm (as all the others) was very moisturizing. This lip balm was definitely THE WINNER in my book.
Patisserie De Bain - Lemon Bon Bon Hand Cream - Not Sweet
I don't know what it is with me and lemon scents! I love lemon. I just don't like sour lemon, when it comes to body products. I feel they should be sweet. I reviewed another lemon product by Be Delectable HERE and it had the same scent as this! Lemon furniture polish...were my words exactly! LOL So you guys, I don't know if it is MY NOSE or what...but I was turned off by the scent. When I think of lemon bon bons, this scent does not come to mind. HaHaHa So I can't recommend this!
Patisserie De Bain - Sugar Rose Hand Cream - Bittersweet
The word POWDERY comes to mind! Think powder puffs, dusting powder and lightly scented roses. This scent is very feminine, but if you don't like any of those things I wouldn't suggest this hand cream. Plus, all their hand creams seem to moisturize only VERY LIGHTLY (and I have really dry hands & skin overall). The one cream, that I loved and went head over heels for was their Strawberry Cupcake BODY CREAM! It comes in a slightly larger jar. Check out my review of it. That, you will LOVE!
