Floral Memento Body Products

Floral Memento Body Products

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 Collection

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.

4 Products I have been Enjoying

Loving These

I have to start with the & Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Lotion, there isn’t a bad thing to say about this product not one. The lotion is creamy and hydrating, the scent is utterly amazing and the packaging is functional and I like the design too. This has a pump which is so handy and hygienic. The Fig scent really lasts well on the skin and I can not get enough of it. This is a 350ml bottle and costs £7. This is so deeply fragranced and keeps my skin feeling soft and smelly so damn good. I would use this forever, in fact I might just do that. I know they have other products in this Fig range & I’m going to buy them all.

Phil Smith Dry Clean Revitalising Dry Shampoo* I kept this pink number in my handbag and used it to freshen up my hair on the go. I have dark brown almost black hair and it doesn’t take much for it to start looking a little greasy. This although being quite a small can did a good job of giving my hair a little volume and keeping it clean. I was impressed.

Pixi Illuminating Tint and Conceal – This is a great two in one product. The Tinted Moisturiser gives a light glowing coverage and the concealer in the lid will give you a little added coverage to any redness or blemishes. I like to use this when I want to look fresh and not wear too much makeup. I have had this for a good year now and it is lasting me well.

Chapstick Mixstix Lemon Berry Sorbet, I bought this whilst in San Francisco and it is a double ended Chapstick with one end being a sweet lemon scent and the other a delicious berry scent. This smells so good and is a good at keeping my lips feeling hydrated. I wish I’d bought a couple more as they are fun. They say you could mix the flavours but I like to keep the lemon & berry separate.

Treats From & Other Stories

You can’t go to London and not shop! Right? Well I certainly can’t. I knew I wanted to visit the usual places like Liberty, SpaceNK and Selfridges. I also wanted to pop into & Other Stories and Pixi – my lovely mum was with me, the weather was so sunny we had a fab time. She treated me to a few bits as I don’t get to see her often (we live 300 miles apart). So it was nice to catch up with her and do a little retail therapy. Its been a while since I spent so much in one go.

I thought I would break it up and show you in this post what I bought from & Other Stories

& Other Stories

 Body Lotion Fig Fiction / Linen Beige Naquet Eyeshadow / Khaki Naquet Eye Pencil

What a beautiful shop & Other Stories is. I took lots of photos and think I will do a post on it. What do you think? Would you be interested in seeing that. The shop is laid out so well and merchandised so you want everything. The clothes are fashionable but affordable and they look to be well made. So many accessories that are merchandised alongside the clothes and we all know that the beauty section has been getting nothing but rave reviews and I’m here to say nothing other than I loved it! So many great own named branded items as well as The Balm, This Works and Dr Bronners and a few more that I wasn’t familiar with.

& Other Stories

I wanted to buy so many things but had to show a little restraint. The Fig Fiction Body Lotion smells divine. Fig has become my new favourite scent. It is so luxurious and fresh, I am in love with it. They had a really good selection of eyeshadows and being utterly predictable I picked up a neutral colour called Linen Beige – why change the habit of a lifetime?? The packaging for the eyeliners I just loved, its so simplistic and appealed to my packaging addiction / obsession. I bought another neutral colour and went for Khaki. I think this is more of a copper but again I made a perfect choice for me & think I will get alot of wear out of it.

& Other Stories

I’m really happy with the products I bought an already planning a return visit. On my wish list is a blush in Satin Magenta the Fig Fiction Body Mist – I can only imagine how amazing this smells and I need to try their BB Cream.

Have you visit & Other Stories or tried any beauty products from them? I’d love to hear your recommendations.
