Molton Brown Jasmine & Sun Rose Collection

Jasmine & Sun Rose Collection from Molton Brown

I love to switch up my perfume as the season’s change and I think this is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new scent. So August saw Molton Brown release their stunning new Pretty Bold – Jasmine & Sun Rose Collection. This Collection celebrates being fearlessly feminine and looks to empower women and their individuality. The range centres around the starring note, the jasmine flower, which is both beautifully delicate yet exceptionally powerful. I think It’s the perfect scent to see us through the end of a beautiful Summer and take us into a crisp fresh Autumn.

Jasmine and Sun Rose Collection Molton Brown

The new Jasmine & Sun Rose fragrance is a mix of fruity and floral, layered with warm sexy feminine notes. It’s a real scent journey and I just love the boldness of the sharp fruity notes coupled with the more smooth and sexy notes of bergamot and musk. It is a real treat and I think it will be a great transitional scent as the seasons change.

As I mentioned this new collection is a celebration of fearless femininity and I’m totally onboard with that. I love anything that champions modern femininity. At its core, this Jasmine & Sun Rose collection is beautifully feminine but I also like that it has a rich, sexy, bold vibe to it too. I think it’s quite a contemporary feminine fragrance and one I think you’re going to love.

New Molton Brown Jasmine Sun Rose Collection

Opening with fresh Bergamot, Raspberry and soft Peach, the captivating scent is enhanced by a delicate heart of Rose, Jasmine and Osmanthus, before settling on a luxurious Patchouli and Musk base.

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Raspberry, Peach
  • Heart Notes: Jasmine, Rose, Osmanthus
  • Base Notes: Labdanum, Patchouli, Musk

The peach and raspberry give this fragrance a real sweet fruitiness that has a juicy touch. The floral notes of osmanthus, jasmine and rose add a classic feminine layer whilst the notes of musk, patchouli and bergamot add that bold, modern sexy feel. This is a fragrance that works for day or night. When it is first spritzed you can really make out the fruity notes but once settled down the elegant, rich, sexy notes of musk and patchouli really come through.

Molton Brown Luxurious Fragrance

The packaging for this collection is simply stunning & to illustrate the fragrance, Molton Brown has collaborated with acclaimed British artist Rhea Thierstein evoking the soul of this fragrance in her own piece of moving art. The bottles themselves are the classic Molton Brown deigns but the colours have a feminine peachy, pink hue and the gift boxes are just extra special. They look like a colourful marble effect and this is one box that I will be keeping, it really is too nice to throw away.

Molton Brown Jasmine Sun Rose Perfume

So if you like classic scents with a modern twist you need to check out this latest offering from Molton Brown. I’m going to pop into a store and treat myself to the bath & shower gel.

As always with fragrance I highly recommend popping into a store & giving it a test, I think it will make a gorgeous Summer/Autumn transitional scent and of course, Molton Brown products always make fantastic gifts.

You can find Baylis & Harding in most major supermarkets and also online at Amazon. Which means you can pick up gifts whilst you do your food shop or from the comfort of your home. I find buying online is super convenient & it also means you can pick up last minute gifts without having to treck into the Christmas shopping madness.

Baylis and Harding always release fun, festive treats which make adorable stocking fillers or secret Santa gifts. This Bath Time Treats duo has my nieces name all over it. She will think the mini roll top bath is super cute and use it to keep her nick nacks in after the products are all used up and the body products in this set smells so festive, the Midnight Fig and Pomegranate is a beautiful rich scent.

5 From bareMinerals

5 Products From bareMinerals

Five Products From bareMinerals

I really like doing these 5 From One Brand posts & this one has been a long time coming. I have used bareMinerals makeup for years & first discovered it on a trip to NYC back in 2006. So its a brand I have stuck with for years now. They have recently released their skincare collection and if you haven’t already you must pop to your nearest counter to check it out. I have included a mix of skincare & makeup and to be honest I could have included at least 10 of my favourite bareMinerals products in this post but I was very disciplined and managed to narrow it down to my 5 absolute favourites which I would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat.

Pop of Passion in Pink Passion Lip Oil Balm 

These lip balms from bareMinerals have a hydrating oil-rich formula so your lips feel nourished whilst also giving them a beautiful wash of colour. They come in 8 easy to wear colours and I have two shades, a more neutral beige and this gorgeous sweet pink. These aren’t as sheer as some lip balms but they’re also not going to give you the vibrancy of a lipstick, they offer a happy medium which I think make them the perfect everyday lip option. The formula contains passion fruit seed oil and vitamin E which nourish and hydrate the lips for maximum comfort and gives them a lovely glossy finish.

bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer

This concealer ticks so many boxes, it offers incredible hydration whilst giving amazing coverage. It has a very fluid formula which initially makes you think its not going to stand up against dark circles, redness or blemishes but you would be very wrong. The lightweight, fluid formula is so easy to blend out and gives you a very seamless finish which you can build up depending on what you want to coverup. This concealer also has a brightening effect so its not going too look dull or heavy on the skin, its beautiful to apply and is long wearing. This along with the Complexion Rescue have been my Summer Dream Team.

SkinLongevity Vital Power Infusion

This is the most recent addition to my skincare routine and also a new release from bareMinerals. Their skincare collection has been very well received since its launch earlier this year and this product in particular seems to one of the most recommended items form the range. It comes packaged in the most beautiful sleek glass bottle, its so weighty and feels luxurious. The product itself has a very fluid formula, much more so than your average serum, once applied to the skin it absorbs quickly but does leave behind a slight residue on the skin, after using it for a couple of days this didn’t bother me.

It contains Long Life Herb Extract, California Poppy and Lempuyang Ginger to promote vitality and give the skin a lovely radiance. When I apply this essence / serum my skin feels and looks smooth, bright and hydrated. This has really helped my tired, often dull skin look a more refreshed and naturally glowing and because its so nourishing it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines by hydrating the skin and giving them that smooth, soft focus look. If you are into skincare and don’t mind splashing out (just a little) then this might be one skincare item to check out. The 50ml of product you get is going to last months, because its a fluid and you only need 2 pumps for you whole face & neck.

bareMinerals Makeup Favourites

Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

I have mentioned this base a lot on my blog & I can say honestly say its one of, if not my favourite light to medium coverage base. It gives your skin a natural, even, radiant finish and it wears very well throughout the day. I prefer to wear a base with SPF during the day and the Complexion rescue offers a Broad Spectrum SPF30 so you’re well covered. Its a skincare, makeup hybrid which is fab & it contains lots of skin loving ingredients including

  • Olive derived squalane – nourishing, hydrating and boosts the skins ability to regenerate
  • Marine botanicals – help refuel thirsty skin and enhance skins appearance
  • Water loving humectants,Tehalsose and glycerine– which locks in moisture
  • Heart leaf globe daisy – an antioxidant, defends skin from from environmental aggressors
  • Calcium and Magnesium – help replenish the skin and promote the skins moisture balance
  • SPF30 PA+++ this also contains a broad spectrum SPF to protect the skin against UVA & UVB rays

I could say wonderful things about this product all day and I have done in many a post. So I won’t go on & on, all I will say is if you’re looking for a beautiful lightweight base with a decent amount of coverage then this has to be top of the list!

Mineral Veil Finishing Powder

Another best selling product from bareMinerals and one that most people associate with the brand. I have been through many a pot of this loose setting powder, although these are not great to travel with it is still one of my favourite setting powders. It has such a lightweight, finely milled formula that instantly gives your makeup that soft focus finish. It never feels heavy or like you have too much makeup on, instead it can really refresh your makeup and help keep it in place all day. I have quite oily skin so a powder is a step I always do, this mineral powder is fantastic at helping eliminate oil and keep your skin looking radiant but with a slight matte finish. If you are on the fence about trying a loose powder don’t be, this one lives up to its reputation and a pot will last you so long. Its a worthy investment and a product you need in your makeup bag! I have the original shade in this which is translucent so it doesn’t add any more colour to your skin, bareMinerals does do a tinted version if you prefer.
