The Cream Perfume Company- Review and Giveaway!!
I love perfumes, I love many types of scents, from sweet and fruity, to warm and musky, I really love a good scent! When I got the chance to review products from The Cream Perfume Company, I have to say, I was in heaven! I was able to try Mango, Apricot, Ylang Ylang, Organic Rasberry, Melon and Mimosa Bouquet ( my personal favorite!)! They come in really cute little wooden "nuts", like an acorn : )
The first thing I noticed and really enjoyed about the scents is that they last a LONG time! I put some on before I headed out in the AM, and 5 hours later, I could still smell it on me. Which also means, these will last a long time! I have psoriasis, so I'm always on the lookout for products that won't irritate my skin, and these perfumes did not irritate it at all! In fact, it seemed to make my bumpy skin go down a bit, no lie!
I was also able to try a few Body Moisturizers, Lavender, Rose and Coconut Vanilla(my favorite!). These moisturizers are great right after a shower, they soaked right into my skin and did not leave a slimy feeling at all. I loved all of the light scents, but wearing the Coconut Vanilla made me feel like I was getting ready to go to the beach! And living in Chicago, I wish I was heading to the beach : ) When wearing the lotion, I didn't even have to put perfume on, the scent is a good strong one that lasts! Again though, not overpowering, just right!
A bit about the company-
It is believed Egyptians were the first people to incorporate perfumes (primarily natural incense and ointments) into their culture around 3000bc. The methods of extracting natural scents, although primitive by comparison, were technically not much different than they are today. Perfumes were often mixtures of oil and crushed petals or herbs until the Arabs later learned to extract oils from flowers through the process of distillation.
We work exclusively with internationally renowned perfumers and the local artisans of Grasse to develop premium nature identical oil blends, ECOCERT certified organic essentials, absolutes and pure plant and fruit extracts. Our perfumes are all phthalate free and contain no sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic dyes, triclosan, GMO, PPG, MEA, DEA, TEA or formaldehyde donors. Our products are cruelty free
Additionally, our perfumed body moisturizers are 100% vegan, wheat and gluten free, contain no glycol, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, synthetic additives or synthetic fragrances.
You can purchase any of these wonderful items online, they would make great holiday gifts or stocking stuffers! At $12, for the perfume or lotion, you're getting a great deal that will last a LONG time!
