I visited the & Other Stories store in London a couple of years ago & treated myself to a few products, I thought it was a great shop and wish I’d had a little more time to browse not only the beauty products but also the clothes. I can’t wait to visit again but I was very impressed with the products I bought and think their range is very affordable and really good quality. So I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to review two products from their new Floral Memento range.
I love setting a day aside every week to do a full on pamper session. I run a bath, do a face mask and give my skin a little TLC. I have been enjoying these two body products from the & Other Stories Floral Memento Collection With the weather getting warmer & the inevitability of getting my legs out, I have found this duo leave my skin hydrated and smooth and a great pre tanning combo.
The Floral Memento range smells to me like a fresh summers day – its quite sweet but with a sophisticated musky layer. It has notes of,
- Top: Lemon, Bergamot, Blackberries
- Heart: Violet, Lavender, Peony
- Base: Musks, Mate leaves, Cedarwood
Floral Memento Body Scrub* £7 – A lovely sugar scrub that polishes / scrubs away the dead skin leaving your body feeling silky smooth. I’ve found its the perfect pre tanning product because after using this your tan doesn’t go patchy or cling to dry area like knees and elbows. I like a scrub that doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped or that is too abrasive & this one is just perfect, its quite gentle and leaves your skin feeling hydrated too.
Floral Memento Body Soufflé* £10 – This is a very lightweight whipped body cream which doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy at all. I like that it almost sinks in instantly and gives your skin a smooth supple finish. This Body Soufflé is ideal for those warmer days / nights when you don’t want to wait for a heavy body butter to sink in as it is so lightweight and silky soft. I like to apply it before I tan because it hydrates and gives your skin a smooth finish.
They both come in a tub with a screw top lid which I like for the body lotion but its not my favourite packaging for a shower product & find that in the shower my tub fills with up with water before I can put the lid back on. I prefer a squeeze tube or one with a pump, they’re more hygienic & easier to use when your hands are wet.
They both smell incredible and it is a scent that lingers on my skin throughout the day, if you like fresh summery floral scents you will enjoy this range. I’ve been trying these two products but this bath and body range also includes a body mist, hand wash, hand lotion, body wash and body lotion so quite a selection. I’m really tempted to get the body mist.
