The full range of products which consists of bath washes, body scrubs, body lotions, shower gels, hand washes and hand lotions comes in two unisex fragrances, simply named 1 and 2. Fragrance 1 is described as smelling like warm, old-fashioned cologne with spicy nutmeg and sweet cardamom, while fragrance 2 is described as a refreshing clean and cooling scent with tingling top notes of summer lemon, watery fresh cut green stems and a hint of mandarin. Both scents are actually inspired by some of Sir Terence Conran's favourite scents and were created by one of the top 10 perfume houses in the world. Pretty impressive stuff!
When contacted and asked would I like to sample some products from the range, I was given the choice of fragrance 1 or 2. Now as I love to use product that produce a warm comforting feeling, I opted for Fragrance 1 and was very kindly sent a Shower Gel and Body Lotion to try.
First up the paqckaging of these products cannot be ignored. Inspired by Kilner Jars, the packaging is So simple and innovative, yet so elegant and stylish. There is no denying that having these on the bathroom shelf is well and truly injecting some gorgeous and unique Conran style into the home. Products which are without a doubt made to be proudly displayed.
The shower gel is an absolute pleasure to use on these dark cold nights. The scent is amazing and produces the feeling of warmth and comfort that I love so much. Its apparent that the ingredients used in the products are of high quality. The shower gel not only leaves my skin with a scent that lingers for hours after use but also feeling very soft to the touch.
The Body Cream I simply cannot get enough of. I am actually quite addicted to use making sure my whole body is covered with it, as the scent is truly amazing. It’s definitely a unisex scent, its not overly feminine nor is it too masculine, it just cuts a line between the two. The formulation is perfect for me, as I am quite picky with my body moisturisers. Although I like them to be thick and luxurious to use, I also like them to rub in with ease. I cannot stand a moisturiser that needs excessive rubbing to sink into the skin. This literally melts into my skin, which did shock me upon first use, as with it being quite thick, I did think it would need some work, but I was wrong. As soon as it hits the skin, my skin just seems to drink it up and Im left with gorgeously silky smooth skin.
Both product have seriously impressed me and I definitely recommend taking a closer look at the range, if you want luxurious products at reasonable prices.
